RICHARDSON COUNTY MAN
SWINDLED OUT OF FARM
STELLA, Neb., June S. (Special.) John
Howater, who lives with Charles Smith
south of Dawson, has been swindled out
of a Kinkald homestead In ' Thomas
county. It la alleged. He proved up on the
MO-acre tract, but owing to 111 health de
cided to leave the sandhills country. A.
man grving the name of Willis and pur
porting to be from Seneca. Neb., talked
him into trading the homestead for a
residence In Grand Island supposed to be
worth $3,000. After the deed was made
and delivered another man came along
and described a splendid timber tract of
260 acres in Washington county, Georgia,
and induced Mr. Howater to exchange
the Grand Island residence for the Georgia
timber land. Mr. Howater then having
his borses. Implements and potato crop
on bis hands again met Willis, the man
who had traded him out of his homestead.
Willis, so he stated, had 250 acres which
joined Mr. Howater's nerw Georgia land,
and he traded this to him for the horses,
Implements and potato crop.
Mr. Howarth became suspicious and a
few weeks ago he took: two warranty
deeds for 200 acres each to F. P. Page, a
real estate agent at Dawson. He found
the deeds faulty but the. abstracts ap
peared genuine. He wrote the men who
gave the deeds, and the lotters were re
turned undelivered. At last the agent
wrote to the treasurer of Washington
county, Georgia, who replied there waa
ho such land in the county as the deeds
Mr. Howater Is nearly SO years old and
unable to do any manual labor. An effort
will be made to see if there is some
way whereby he can recover his loss.
