PfilSQNERS. Men for Steal I at Hale aa .' Hera Ga te.taa tar ':'f f agllra Calleetlrely.' ... Sheriff Bees Hogans and Messrs. John R. Young, John W, Qulnn and J. H. 6hlnn, arrived in the city from Pope county yesterday, briog-log briog-log briog-log several prisoners for the penitentiary. penitentiary. : Ed. Inman was sentenced sentenced fifteen years for stealing a mule. This goes to illustrate the fact that it Is not right to steal a mule. Any man who would steal a male should be punished. John Wood stole a horse and received a sentence of eight years. This settles an old question, "which is more valuable, the male or the horse?" School-house School-house School-house debating societies need not handle this question any longer. Charles Stephens was sentenced five years for stealing a mule. That's a fact; this again opens the question for discussion.- discussion.- The judge must have made a mistake in this matter. The five' year mule was no doubt a small red mule. A man who has the courage to steal such an animal should not be sent to the penitentiary. He should be presented presented with a hickory Shirt and granted a commission as SDecial Judge of Conway municipar elec tions. Dr. P. O. Chaney was fined one thousand dollars and sentenced to one year, having been convicted of irreligious intimacy with a young lady. He stood very high in his community and his disgrace is a sad blow. He was raised by indulgent parents who now live in Kentucky. He was sentenced on thefirst day of April, and when lie had been taken to the jail, he exclaimed: "Oh, this cannot be real. Is it not an April fool joke being perpetrated perpetrated on me?" "Yes," replied Stephens, the mule thief, "an April fool joke that will last from one April to another."
