Fox who had in his posses.s- lon n hat which bore the name of .Malcolm firm with the address ].,aHarpe, Kaias. Among other goods found were some shirts like those stolen from the Malcolm store. Fo.x was caught in the ,ict of robbing' a stole twenty miles from Pawnee.: Two other stores had already been entered that night at that place. The sheriff at Pawnee says that Fox admits his having come frdrn this section of the country. lie says he passed through a town near LaHarpo, but did not stop there. .Jtr. Malcolm left yesterdav for Pawnee to work on the case. This morning 3Ir. Bollinger received word that • they expected to prosecute Fox at Pawnee so that the only thing that is left for Jlr.' Malcolm to do at Pawnee Is to gel a confession from the sujspect. In case Mr. Malcolm identifies his gopds, which seems very probable, the officers will then beliex-e that F'\is! in some way connected with ih< robbery. !A week ago Stinday morning seven stores at Gas City and LaHarpe were entered and quite a lot of goods taken, together with some cash left in the money drawers. ! • "v I. • • ' . • , THE IfYKATHEB. .FiorcMSt for Ksnfiast F»Ir tonlirhti mid Taecdai-; coBtlnafd .warm.'
