Ilurso Stealins. On the 'evening of .the 4th of this month Mr. Eil Safenle had a horse saddle and bridle taken trom the hitching rack on the street, and ol course missed him in a few minutes. Thov were not !ong in striking the trail. It was discovered that one John I'osten had gone and also one of ll,os dirty X'rnstiluf es tint this city boasts of, ii.id also lisap;.e;ireJ. They were both tracod to Humboldt, where the young man lives, and the horse was found to have-been sold down hear La- dore for iE10. He had been tra ded several times and had at last started for Wichita, was sent, for and overhauled. Tom Saferite swore out a warrant and Marion Spawr. went to Humboldt and took in the young man and brought him up, and had a pre liminary examination before Esquire Henry, yesterday. lie was. bound over to court, and is now enjoying the hospitality of Sheriff Woodiu, at Iola. The proof is certain that the young man will no doubt get a line ride to Leavenworth. As long a3 our city authorities will tolerate these houses ot prostitution so long will wo be cursed with horse thieves. Woodson County Past. ; ' ' ii
