We made a mistake in last week’s issue when we said that Mike Grasser’s team was tied to a post in front of Geo. Beaver’s saloon just before they made up their mind to run away.  The horses were in the sheds.  We are asked to make this correction because there are no posts in front of that place and then someone might think that Mike was acquiring bad habits in his old age. Those who know him know better.
