a story accounting for every minute

About six months ago Messrs
Kunx it Boy, blacksmiths, at Beth
any sold their shop and busine?s to
U. Chadbourn who was to pay for the
property by Installments. He
bought lumlier from Kyle A Brook
and built a small dwelling nnd 1
barn. Last we k he went to Meirs
Kuna & Boy and asked them to ex
ecute a deed. With a fee simple title
he said that he could borrow enough
money by executing a mortgage to
pay for the land and the mill men for
Ihe lumber. K. A B. saw no objec
tive to the pisry and TO3ilJ Ifco rtcrf.
This was on Friday, Chadbourn was
to mortgage his place for I3CU.0O the
same dsy and pay the money on Sat
urday. The first was done but on
Saturday instead of paying the
money to Kus a Boy and tho mill
men, he stuck it into his pocket and
skipied. Now several of the people
attout Bethany are trying to find out
where they are at. The deed was
sent to the Recorder's office and a
part of the recording fee, but it is not
filed and Messrs Kuns & Boy do not
want it filed, but the mortgage does
and there is a courlict of interests, but

is the mill men with their mechanics
