  • Notes 
    • From the “Jacksboro Rural Citizen:”

      Our readers will remember that some time ago Sheriff KING with several men pursued a party of horse thieves in the northeast corner of this county and captured several horses but failed to get the thieves. Later the same party of thieves were overhauled near Honeywell, Kansas, one killed, another seriously wounded, and on the 3rd, our friend SHERRY of Henrietta, who used to handle the lightning at this place, wired us that sheriff WRIGHT returned from Kansas, bringing BEN and MARION HORTON and FRANK CORNEILUS, horse thieves, and nine head of horses and mules they had stolen from Clay County. They were captured at Honeywell, Kansas. One was killed, another seriously wounded, and one escaped, JIM YOUNGBLOOD.

      Yesterday morning, JIM YOUNGBLOOD and MOSE COPELAND came into the southeast corner of the county near New Hope church and with some horses, began gathering up more. Sheriff King had previously placed a writ in the hands of deputy W. A. JOHNSON for Youngblood when he might come in. Johnson was notified and every man notified his next neighbor and in about three hours, 10 or 11 men had come together and found them at WILLIAM YOUNGBLOOD’S. JIM YOUNGBLOOD and MOSE COPELAND mounted their horses and fled, but were soon captured, Youngblood wounded in his shoulder and leg.
