not more than three-quarters of a mile
from home. When Mr. Swaggart saw
the elderly gent the sun was shining
brightly and he did not know that Mr.
Hynd was lost.
Three o'clock In the afternoon
Mr. Hynd's folks became anxious over
the delay of his return and, by phone,
notified the neighbors. Different
searching parties were organized, but
all efforts to find the missing neighbor
were fruitless until 12 p. m. After
dark the searchers provided themselves
with lanterns and continued the search.
One of the parties finally succeeded in
finding Mr. Hynd about twelve miles
from home. Comfortable lodging
was provided for him at the elegant
country home of F, E. Bell, a promi
nent and well known agriculturist and
stockman of the county, who resides
about five miles from Lexington.
Immediately upon finding the "lest"
neighbor a telepone message was sent
