CLAWSON WANTED FOR EMBEZZLEMENT

Maryville, Mo., Mar. 26.---A warrant was issued last night for the arrest of D.B. Clawson of Barnard, charging him with embezzlement.
Clawson was a harness maker in Barnard for 14 years, but failed recently. He owed about $1,000 besides $1,200 which he had as treasurer of the Odd Fellows' lodge of Barnard. The charge against him is that he misappropriated the latter sum. Clawson left Barnard Saturday morning in a buggy, stating that he was going to Stanberry, where he claimed that he had a job. At latest reports, the constable was after him but had not effected his arrest.
He had stood high in the community and his recent actions have caused much surprise.

The Saline Republican (Marshall Mo) January 13, 1899

HOYTS FOUND OUT

Lehigh, Jan. 10.-- Last week United States officers arrested George Hoyt and his entire family, and it develops that there has been a systematic series of burglaries in progress.
The family came to this city several years ago from Marshall, Mo., and includes a son and stepson. They became active in religious work and soon came to be looked upon as a model family. They made money in the mines here and rented one of the best houses in the city.
Will Burt and his wife went to board with the family some time ago, and it was through them that the real character of the Hoyts was divulged. It was discovered that the family had much stolen property in its possession, and it has since been identified as the spoils of many mysterious robberies. There are hundreds of dollars worth of stuff in the possession of the authorities and thousands of dollars are said to have been realized by disposition of the booty. The Hoyts have been taken to Atoka and locked up.
It will be remembered here that Mr. Hoyt cultivated for many years the Lantz fruit farm east of the college.

ATTACK A PRINCIPAL

Maryville, Mo., Mar. 13.--- This afternoon Prof. H. G. Davis, principal of the Burlington Junction schools, attempted to drive away two boys, Jesse and Chuck Casey, aged 19 and 16 years, respectively, who, it is charged, were disturbing the schools by whistling in the yard.
An altercation ensued, and Prof. Davis was assaulted with bricks by the Caseys. One of the missiles struck him just over the eye, cutting a long gash, and another cut off half of his left ear. His condition is regarded as serious. Warrants have been issued for the boys, charging them with assault with intent to kill.

City Marshal Gardner placed the man in the corridor at noon and went out to get the man's dinner. During his absence, the prisoner dug out brick around the stovepipe hole into the police office and made his escape. He was found a short time later in one of the drug stores buying a "drug" needle.

THIEVES CARRY OFF CASH REGISTER IN BURGLARY AT RISCO

Bloodhounds belonging to Fred Myer were taken to Risco Tuesday to trail thieves who early that morning broke into the store known as "Bill's Place," and stole the cash register containing $15.
The dogs followed the trail to an automobile parked nearby and from there trailed 3 miles into the country where the broken cash register was found with a file nearby.
On later examination, this file was found to be missing from the tool chest in the car and had evidently been stolen in order to force the register open. From the spot where the register was found the dogs continued on down a railroad track until the trail was lost, and where it is believed the thieves hopped a passing train. The dogs were taken to Risco by Hugh Mitchell and Fred Barks.
