on. When last seen was going east:
answers to almost any name you give
him. No reward will be given for his re
turn." Not hearing from him in due course of
time a search party was organized and
he was traced across the line into Ne
braska, where rte had driven around aim
lessly, tramping down about a secth-n of
good grazing bind belonging to Les
Crane. A man seeing him driving
around in a circle wentout to him, when
he inquired for a man by the name of a
color applied to a horse. He did not
know whether it was buy, brown, buck
skin or cream. He was directed to
Dunn's where he found the object of hi:,
search, a fair haired damsel who consent
ed to go riding with him. It was then
thought that a sure enough elopement
had been planned hut upon going to the
home of (he fair lady it was found that
they had just returned. The lady blush

just returned from a visit to friends in
