Negro Is Near
1,200 Pounds of Tobacco Is
Stolen From James A.
Jones Near Here
■ ■■■ "■■! ♦
Early Wednesday n .owing, Mr.
James A. Jones who lives on the
lleddick farm near here, was giqaUy
"surprised when he enu red his* pack'*
barn and found 1200 pound. ol la.
tobacco missing. The tobacco was
graded and ready for the market.
During the night, tiie thieves went
to J. G. .Staton's farm not more than
two hundred yards away' and borrow
ed a mule and cart. They loaded the
t tobacco on the cart and carried it
j to the Skewarkey gra\e yard where
I Mr. Jones could track it np further.
The mule was found that morning tied
to a tree in the chureh grounds.
! Inquiries were made in i.everal
towns in an effort to ...iblish a trace
j of the .tolen tobacco, but they proved'
, worthless. Yesterday, while re
j pail work at th? fair grounds, Nelson
Mason found thertobacci. and reported
it to Mr. Jones who went to the staEleS'
' ai the extreme end of the fair grounds
uhd identified it as his. No clue as to
who attempted to rob the tobacco
; has been advanced.
Apparently the thief or thieves
| were familiar with the surroundings
! in the neighborhood, for the borrow
ed mule was very tame, and a few
hours later the tobacco would have
been sifld by its ownei„
