CASEY STILl AT IT
'Box Car Casey" too well known in
the halls of policedom to need any in
troduction, was rouiided up for what is
to be hoped, the last time, by acting chief
of Police Faulk this morning. Casey had
stolen a pair of overalls and a pair of
second hand shoes, the latter beinz
converted thirty five cents. Casey has
been the limit, and the city authorities
are going to make every effort to remove
him from the city for at least a period
of two years, if the warden down at
Salem is equal to the task of keeping him
there. The acting chief had a lively time
early this morning with the gentleman of
box car profficfency and it was only
after several smart raps on the "Cocanut
had been administered that he saw fit
to be lead quietly.
