Juvenile matters were up before the
county judge Monday and the case
against James Emery and Hal Tyrrel
on a charge of stealing a motorcycle
from Edwin Campbell was heard and
decided in favor of the defendants. It
seems that Campbell owes both of the
boys for work they have performed
and that they felt they had an inter
est in the motorcycle until the bill
was paid. The judge assessed a slight
■'■image to the machine against them
and turned them loose.
Testimony was taken in the J. W.
Coach estate matter Monday to reach
a definite conclusion as to the amount
of property left by Mr. Coach. Sev
