The New Hartford Index has an item about a well known Kossuth teacher: "A. A.

About a week ago they broke into the little cage and tried to dig out at the same place that Kenna went througn, but Sheriff Samson caught them at it. Sunday night they had a little steel strip they had notched and were sawing the bars of the cage off. Night- watch York heard them and aroused Deputy Brunson and he got Sheriff Samson and the two went down about 1 o'clock and stopped f u rther proceedings.
