W. P. Miller, who has been employed in H. J. Youman’s drug store, for the last two years, served his engagement here last Saturday, and after a short visit to his former home in Appleton, will make a trip to the Lake Superior country in quest of a location to establish a drug store.

The man who hired a team of E. D. Webster some time ago with the intention of stealing it, who gave his name as E. D. Ball, was George Morrison, of Bakerville, to which place he drove the same day he hired the team, and where officers Myers and Tolford first got track of him. The team was found last Friday, at Watoma, where he had traded it for another horse and $45, to a man by the name of Potts, who mistrusting that something was wrong, followed him to Plainfield, and recovered his horse, but Morison got away with the money. Mr. Webster has recovered his team, but the thief is still at large.
