Sheriff returns empty handed
Sheriff Trimmer, who went to Newark, N.J., after Joseph Ost, under indictment for burglarizing the clothing store of Charles Sandham, of Bellevue, with two others, on the night of April 21, returned home, Saturday night, empty handed.
When he arrived in Newark where Ost had been apprehended on information from officials of this county, the sheriff found that Ost had been taken in charge by the New Jersey authorities to serve the balance of a sentence inflicted in that state, by reason of his violating a parole.
Names of several soldiers omitted
In the list of old soldiers, published in the Reflector-Herald last week, a few errors crept into the article, and there were a few unintentional omissions. The names of Samuel Roberts, soldier of the Way of 1812, and John Barrington and Martin Kellogg, soldiers of the Revolutionary War, were omitted. The name of Aaron Fay, of the Revolutionary War, was misspelled that day.
