MRS. CLARENCE E. SMITH HAD
The Man Made His Get Away And
Was Found By Police Marts
Under Union House Barn
About six o'cloclk Monday evening
a man broke into the residence of
Clarence Smith while Mr. Smith was
in the country and Mrs. Smith had
gone down town shopping. She did
net bolt the back door, but only,
latched the screen and left the door
open as it was so warm. When she
returned she noticed that the screen
was cut, hut thinking maybe some
of the young men rooming there had
lost their key and cut the screen to
get in, she was not alarmed.
When she entered the dining room 1
she noticed that the room was all
upset and that one of the curtains j
was all mussed up and twisted, still
she thought perhaps Mr. Smith had ;
come in so she went to the stair i
door to call and see if he was there. >
When she opened the door she saw a
man standing in the stairway with hi !
hand over his face, Mrs. Smith spoke j
to him and thought it was a young j
man who rooms there, but as soon '
as he spoke she saw it was a strang
er. She asked him what he was
doing there, and he replied: “Lady 1
am hungry and broke." She told
him that upstairs was a queer place
for a man to go when ho was hun
gry. He then told her lie was drunk.
She told him lie was not too drunk
to come down the stairs with her, he
thinking there were other people in J
the house came down without any
- trouble, but when he reached the
dining room and saw there was no
one there, he made a dash for the
back door. Mrs. Smith caught him
by the coat and hung on with all her
might. She tried to get him out the
front door where she thought she
could get help from passers by, hut
he perferred the hack door for his
exit. He finally got away leaving
part of his coat sleeve in her hand.
Chief of Police Marts as called and
located the supposed thief under tne
platform north of the Union House
barn. He was taken to jail for the
night. Mr. Smith’s revolver, a small
gilt bedroom clock and a hat brush
were found on the man. Another
h'ush ?s missing ar.d it is thought
that possibly the man lost <t under
the shed. Mrs. Smith was not
frightened until it was all over. She
noticed that the buffet drawers were
open about four or five inches, where
she k< eps her rings, and that the
rings were in plain sight. She now
thinks that tin* man was in the act
o' helping himself when he heard som
noise at the front and was attempt
ing to get out of the window when
he heard her coming and thinking lie
could not get out there he hid in the
PREPARATORY FOR BUSY SPRING
Must Sell Live Stock Off And Pre
pare For Seeding And Lood
ing After Crops
"During the next month,” remarked
Jacob Majerus, a prosperous farmer
of Rulo, "farmers will make an ef
fort to unload their fed cattle and
marketable hogs. This is being don
in order to make way for the busy
spring when we have no spare time
to devolo to cattle feeding and hand
ling hogs. We have a good supply
of stock hogs on hand, and I think
it would be safe (o add that we • ill
have a large spring'pig crop. But
tin i" are no more cattlo on food
now than wo had a j ar a o. The
average farc er cannot afford to per
mit anything to interfere with seed
ing and looking after ids crops.

Wo have a first class farming terri
tory there, and high priced land.wher
we must give everything our full at
tention.” Mr. Majerus has been a
resident of Richardson county for 43
years landing here when the county
was thinly settled.
Found Team At Louisville
riattsmouth, Mcli 17—A young man
and woman, neither giving their
names, drove into Louisville last
evening and secured quarters, after
which the young man visited the liv
ery stable of U. F. Riechart, whero
he endeavored to sell the rig. After
considerable haggling around they
came to terms as to price, but the
suspicions of the liveryman were
by this time aroused, and before he
would make the deal he wanted to
know if the property was that of the
possessor. As the young man gave
his address as Fremont, Mr. Riech
art telephoned at that place and
found that the rig bearing the ex
act description of the one in ques
tion had been stolen from Omaha
yesterday. The city marshall was
called and the man was arrested.
