Chicken Stealing Still Prevalent
The epidemic of chicken steal­
ing in this part of the county,
which in the last few weeks has
represented many dozen fowls,
last week took on a wholesale at­
titude, with several Eagle Creek
farmers being the losers.
The stealing has no! been con­
fined to any one district, with re­
ports first coming in from Als-
paugh, then from Springwater
and Viola and last week from
Eagle Creek and Barton.
Whoever the thief is, he is a
clever one, leaving no traces of
his work, other than the empty
hen coops and probably uses a
machine in getting away with
his spoils.
Peter Ruhl of George spent a
few days last week in Portland
on a business and pleasure trip.
All work must be called for before April 14th.
