by a notorious character of this vicinity
named Johnson and an armed posse Is after
him, hoping to rescue hla victim. If he

morning and said Johnson had kidnaped his
daughter and that he wanted help to go
after her. The alarm spread quickly and
a group of twenty men started out, armed
to the teeth. Butler himself Is with the
party stid If Johnson la located trouble Is

probably spirit him away to an adjoining
county for safe keeping, because the people
