A coat and some
underclothing were stolen yesterday from a
man in Mr. Sim's stable. The
property belongs to Mr. Sims' hired
man. This is a sample of half a dozen
similar sneak thefts already reported on
last evening, showing that thieves are out
in force. Beware of them.

During the year
1879 stolen property to the value of
$5,955.53 was reported to be stolen within
this bailiwick. In the same period
there was recovered, by the Dayton police
authorities, $6,565.30, $609.75 more than
reported stolen. A portion of the
recovered property, etc., stolen at other
points was $29,000, taken from the Franz
family, near Trotwood, last February.
The alleged thieves were ferreted out and
arrested by our police. Two of the
three were convicted in our court, and one
of them is serving a sentence in the
penitentiary; another one is awaiting
sentence; the third - well, we not desire to
do anybody injustice, and will await the
verdict of the jury.
Wm. Sander, Pap Payne, Pel. Ebey, and
others have got home from the great rabbit
slaughter at Leo. Weltz's grounds,
near Wilmington, Clinton County. There
were present on the 30th on invitation of
Mr. Weltz, gentlemen from Columbus,
Circleville, Hillsboro, Cincinnati, and
other points in Central and Southern Ohio -
adepts with the breech loader and the old
"stub twist" muzzle loader, who whacked the
"cotton tails" right and left, bagging
nearly 400 carcasses. It wa a terrible
slaughter of innocents, and the game was
distributed generously among the curious
inhabitants who were gathered in great
crowds in the vicinity of the nursery to
witness the sport. The ground was too
soft for first class sport. Had the
ground been frozen, and a little snow spread
over it, it is estimated that a thousand
rabbits could have been whacked over.
The rabbits multiply so rapidly in that
region that were they not to be destroyed by
wholesale every couple of years they would
destroy Mr. Weltz's nursery.
evening Capt. Ashly Brown,
of the U. S. Revenue Office, with his
family conversed by medium of the Bell
telephone, with relations in Indianapolis.
It was a seance of the family circle, so to
speak, and more wonderful and real than
anything ever dreamed of by the promulgators
of so called spiritualism. The
branches of the Brown family at each
end of the wire were provided with "ear
horns," and they were practically united, as
though gathered around the hearthstone at
"the old house at home." This is a
wonderful age, but we haven't got to the end

The mercury went down to 32°
Saturday night, and Sunday morning we had an
etherial snow storm of brief duration.
And yet the fruit is uninjured.
George Kraft, who was arraigned the other day
for alleged violation of the revenue laws,
before United States Commissioner Gunkel
will have a hearing on Wednesday. It
is an important case. In that it will
virtually decide a number of other cases,
and set a precedent.
President McCosh, of Princeton College, will
arrive here this morning, and will be
escorted to the National Soldiers' Home,
where he will dine with Gov. Brown
and staff. He will deliver an address
to the veterans after dinner, and will soon
afterward proceed by rail to Cincinnati,
where he will attend the alumni of the
Princeton "boys" tonight.
In the Probate Court, in the case of the State vs.
Emma Milman, charged with assault and
battery, in cruelly whipping Theodore
Watson in school, where defendant was
teaching, the jury unanimously found for the
"little school marm," after being out about
five minutes. This result gives great
satisfaction to nineteen out of twenty
persons who are posted on the situation.
Any other result would have not only been a
violation of decent proprieties, but would
have been fearfully and destructively
demoralizing to our schools. Mr.
Nevin, of counsel for defendant, and an
exceptionally bright young attorney, put up
a bit of sharp practice upon Mr.
Craighead, who was his law preceptor.
Mr. Young, Prosecuting Attorney, made
a brief speech, opening for the State, when
Mr. Nevin arose and remarked that he
had nothing to say. The case was so
very plain that he would submit it without
argument! Mr. Craighead, who
was prepared to make a capital argument, was
thus cut off.
