Biggest Picture of the Year
The appearance of a strange
long horned red aow who rustled
a luscious breakfast of kale from
H. F. Woodcock's garden, and
her subsequent arrest by Pound
master Laco B. DeCamp and in
carceration in a section of the
ivery barn as city pound quar
ters has caused Mayor R. E.
Wilson to be the object of more
niiith than Maupin has hereto
Bi)ssy had been noticed for' a
few days and after so viscous an
offenc on the said citizen's sup
ply of u inter chicken feed, May
or Wilson assumed the duty of
inquiring as to ownership, and
being unable to find her master,
ordered Mr. DeCamp to take
care of her. Now, Mr. Wilson
having numerous other more
personal du.ies to look after
than investi. autig personally
strange stock f anning at large,
rather depended on information
furnished by J. II. Fleming and
others that the Lrand on this
particular cow was 1 ot the same
as that on some cattle he had
himself purchased this fall, than
investigating for himstlf.- So aft
er being assured that his brand
was not on the animal, consider
ed he had no further responsi
bility in the matter than to as
sure Poundmaster DeCamp of
$1.50 a day for keeping Bossy
and the city a fine of $5 to ado
to the treasury. Mr. DeCamp
recognized the cow as a goodly
animal and proceeded to "look
her over" while she was enjoy
ing a meal legally provided for
her by the city of Maupin and
discovered the particular brand
which Mayor Wilson claims for
his cattle, and thereupon inform
ed Mr. Wilson of the fact. Now
as the "laws of the Medes and
Persians changeth not", so an
order by the Msyor of Maupin
must not be altered, even though
it is his own cow who is dining
at the city pound until redeemed
The present condition of the
trail leading to the pasture
where her former companions
are feeding being impractical to
attempt to lead Bossy, she will
remain a city ward until travel
ing is better.
