The chase crossed ^ ne Kansas border, and Agnew's jurisdiction ceased, but the chase didn't. Knowing the Smith County roads like a book, Agnew took a shortcut and rounded up his man some 10 or 12 miles inside Kansas. Didn't Know Where He Was Since the bootlegger raised no objection, he was brought back to I Franklin, where he pleaded guilty, j lost his automobile, his load of ! contraband, and paid a heavy fine i and costs. Ajrncw said he had "considerable" trouble keeping a straight face when the bootlegger complained bitterly: "If I had ever got into Kansas everything would have been all right." Says Agnew with a grin: "Maybe the arrest was not quite according to the books, but I didn't consider it my business to tell this man when he had been. After all, the way we twisted and turned over those country roads, I might have been mistaken myself." Read Courier News Want Acis. Livestock ST.
