Three Claimants For Old W ornout Horse, in Row P J d ^ o t g 1 f h b ] * eg ow im at ent Mi E a f tl bat ati f c rorr iKh "I or Jut len H would take a King Solomon to decide decide what to do with n horse which is the subject of conflicting claims. Charley Antrobus claims Uiat. the horse is one third his, one>third .Chauncey .Chauncey Goff's and one third Ohauncey's wife. On the other hand Clmuncey Ooff and his wife claim they own the horse absolutely, It being given them by the Red Cross at Frederick, Mb. "We were travelling through there on foot," said Antrobus, "and the folks foil norry for us and bought us the horse and we made apical for harness and wagon." But the story 1 told by, the GofTs is different. "We were given the horse, and we saw Antrobus, who wears a peg leg, walking, and when'he told us how he lost his leg in the war, we gave him a ride to Alton and here we found out he lost bin leg in a.railroad accident, accident, not In the war." Magistrate Maguire fined Antrobus and costs for disturbing the peace of the other two claimants, and said that there might have to be some litigation litigation over the horse, which originally originally cost $18.50, being marked down from some higher price because of the high cost of feed. "It would be a good horse," a neigh- I bov said, "if Hpmebody would feed it." But from all accounts, the horse and >f feed are strangers.
