A Disturbance Nipped in the Dud.
Last Saturday night five of the
Reese ranch hands , C. B. Martin ,
J. R. Martin , Ed Gracy , C.
Wright and Layman came driving
into the city behind a pair of
high stepping mules.
While driving around the
streets they became very loud
and boisterous in their speech
and when requested to stop such
talk by Marshal Draper they
hurled abusive epithets at him
and went on down the street past
the post office towards the rail
road station. In , the meantime
their language had been getting
more vulgar and louder every
moment and to cap the climax
as they -were opposite the B. &M
restaurant they began shooting
with a 32 Winchester special.
This proceedure was entirely
too much for our Irish marshal
to stand patiently and hear. At
this time a gentleman was going
by in an automobile. Draper
called to him and turning his
machine they started after the
The next thing those gentle
men .knew was that the marshal
was navigating rapidly in their
direction in a buzz wagon 'and
the ensuing chase will probably
never be forgotten by the people

in every respect. Not until the
galloping mules had put six long
muddy miles between them and
Broken Bow were they stopped
by the arm of the Jaw and by
that time two of the men seeing
that their horse power did not

safety in a nearby corn field.
The remaining three were
brought back and placed in the

were apprehended and brought to

were all released on $300 bonds.

tendent of the draft horse depart
ment informs becretary Mellor of
the board that the entries in his
class are greater than ever before
and that the exhibit of draft
horses bids fair to exceed in
quantity as well as quality al !

former years. Fair dates thisj
