"George Ilcaton, :i gny haired old
man from Hud Cloud, who is visiting
the fair, startled the crowd on O struct
nuur Eleventh la.it evening by chasing
wildly down the struct in pursuit of a
fleeing colored girl. The old man was
gaining on her, and finally caught her
after she had stranded in the arms of
a young fellow who was coming down
the street in opposite direction. Mr.
Ilcaton claimed she go1, his pocket

him. He says he pushed her away,
hut she persisted, and soon he felt his
watch leave his pocket. lie grabbed
it and put it back into his trousers
