- Two tramps who had taken temporary lodging in the Mansell House (formerly Egbert Hotel, sw corner Main St. & Center.) have made themselves quite familiar with the rooms adjacent their's and on Saturday after the occupants of the room had gone for the morning, they took entire possession and proceeded to pick up everything of value in sight. They even went so far as to dress up in W. L. Sheffield's clothes, leaving their own soiled apparel to tell the odorous tale of an uncleanly and misspent life. When Mr. Sheffield heard this he arose in his mighty wrath and started after the fleeing fugitives armed with a shotgun and revolver. He overtook them before they reached the depot and as he drew uncomfortably near they dropped their booty and made a break for liberty. He fired at one of them but missed. The fusillade (a # of shots fired in succession) was getting warm and the man surrendered. Officer Gailey arrested the other one near the R G W depot about an hour later. They gave their names as Henry Beckers and Leland Young.
