Hutteville waa considerably excited

the intelligence that the store of Yander

after supper he was surprised to find
that the door to the store had been pried
open wilh an ax and that the Bsfe had
been rifled of its contents Constable J.
B. (iiesy of Aurora was notified of the
crime and went over to Hutteville on
Monday morning. Suspicion had been
fixed upon two boys, Ed. launders sited

the constable arrived he secured Saunders

between them and a check for $100 and

they had burned. One of the hoys had

Mr. David Penman, jr., was in the
city on Tuesday for the purpose o cor
recting certain malicious rumors which
have been circulated in his neighbor
hood concerning himself and brothers.
These reports connect his name as the
instigator of trouble in the neighborhood
which culminated n a row at the spell
ing school at Leland school house lost
Friday night. Mr. Penman denies
these allegations as false and says that
he knew nothing of the trouble at the
school house till after it had attracted
general attention, when in spite of his
efforts to stop it the partiea persisted
sisted in continuing the disturbance.
The story that himself and brothers
were intoxicated and making a disturb
ance in the community till near morn
ing he proved utterly false. Mr. Pen
man desires to warn these parties that
it will be well for them to discontinue
such malicious and mischievous attacks
i in the future.
