BURGLARY

A small burglary was committed at the Rich Hill house last night.
Last night a man applied for accommodations at the Rich Hill house, which he secured. This morning it was found that the stranger had departed during the night and had taken a watch valued at $16 of $18, and two or three dollars in silver belonging to Dr. Adams, a boarder.
He also took three dollars belonging to another guest of the house. It is probable that the slick young man has made his escape, as no trace of him can be found.

They both became so frightened they ran from the house. The man with the lamp carried it into the back yard where he dropped it on the ground, it exploded.

WOMEN QUARREL, ONE SHOT

Springfield.---Enraged over a dispute with a neighbor woman concerning the latter's chickens, Mrs. Ilo Steadman, a well-known resident of Springfield, shot and probably fatally wounded Mrs. Ira Patterson.
The shooting was done with a .44 caliber automatic revolver, which sent a steel bullet through the victim's head. Mrs. Patterson is still alive, but physicians say there is no hope for her recovery. Both women are about 25 years of age, and the victim of the shooting has six small children. Mrs. Steadman is the mother of four.
Immediately after the shooting, Mrs. Steadman undressed and went to bed, and when the police arrived she feigned illness so well that the officers arrested another woman and were about to take her to jail on suspicion of being the assailant, when one of the children of Mrs. Patterson declared the crime had been committed by Mrs. Steadman. The latter refused to leave her bed, and it was two hours before the officers were able to persuade her to dress and accompany them to the police station. The prisoner is in the county jail.

HIS WIFE THE ONLY WITNESS

Because the only one who could give evidence against him is his wife, Turner Bass, a negro, was released yesterday from a forgery charge. Bass was arrested Wednesday, suspected of having forged the name of J.H. Hill on three checks and passing them on the grocery firms of Point & Tyson, L.C. Smith, and Baker & Robinson Company.
The use of a rubber stamp with the name of a firm that did not exist caused the discovery of the forgery.
