Horse Stolen on Central Avenue

Charles Woodbury, Living Near Cemetery, Loses a Valuable Animal Today

Taken by Unknown Parties

Horse Had Been Left Tied Just West of Right Place Store. Police at Work

A horse and buggy belonging to Charles Woodbury, living near the cemetery, unexpectedly disappeared at about noon today. the horse had been hitched on Sixth street, just east of the right place store, and was taken from that place by some unknown person, and has not been seen since.

Mr. Woodbury’s son saw the horse being driven around, but thought that his father had given some one permission to use it. He saw the buggy stop at the curbing and take in another man, after which it was driven away and he has not seen it since.

The horse was a dark brown animal, fastened to a well worn buggy without a top. The matter was reported to the police and Marshal Ed Welch spent considerable time this afternoon looking for the missing property, but up to the time of going to press had found no trace of it.
