Headline: Horse Thieves Caught

Last Thursday afternoon the officers here were notified to be on the lookout for a couple of horse thieves that had been operating around Chinook and later in the day they were arrested by Deputy Sheriff Casady and Marshal Wolfe.

They were both young fellows, one a boy of about 16 years of age and the other about twenty-two or three. It seems too bad when a boy gets in bad company and gets into a scrape like this as it may mean a trip to the penitentiary.
