TWTÇTvVl THE CORSICANA (TEXAS) DAILY SlJIi TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 194#. PRISONER IN COUNTY JAIL, WITH HELP OF TRUSTY FORGES CHECK Th!« is th« Btory of a forffery that occurred In the county jali: Officers, however, were not derelict in their duty and promptly lodged charges that will probably land a couple of men, one white and one negro, in the penitentiary. accordig to a story reated Tuesday by David Ralston, assistant county attorney. A white charged with for- i gery was in jail. A negro tru.sty was serving out k fine on .a swindling conviction and they decided on some easy money. The trusty, it was related, secured a blank check on a local ] bank at a filling station and returned it to the white man whom officers said had been involved In forgery activ.ties. A check in the ' amount of was forged, the as-1 sistant county attorney said, and the trusty went to town, purchased a hen at a market for abotit $2, taking the approximately $18 in change and tossing the hen (as acarce and high at meat is) Into a trash can down the alley from the market. He was suppoeed to go back and dhT up or divide with the one that had drawn the chack and furnished the brain work for the transaction. The negro trusty, however, hearl that an uncle had paid out the remaining portion of his fine, and did not return to the county baa- tile on his own accord. The bank turned down the chack and the trusty found himself hack In the toils of the law with a paas* Ing a forged instrument charge against him. while his partner In th# transaction haa another forgery complaint against his record. The cases will probably be presented before the grand jury when the investigators return for work sometime this month. WILLIAM J. JOHNSON iFUNERAL SERVICES PLANNED WEDNESDAY I William J.
