When the depredations on the hen
coops were first noticed, the chickens
missing each night were only three or
four. Every night a different coop was
entered and some of the poultry taken.

the midnight raids, got together and
decided on a concerted plan of action
to capture the thief or thieves.

loading anl pump shot guns. Their
vigilance was not rewarded until last
Wednesday night when Clyde Heckert,
residing at 2627 South Third street,
heard a commotion in one ol' his neigh
bor's pens and upon making an inves
tigation discovered a large Shepherd
dog and a smaller mongrel slaughtering
the ilock. The big dog was promptly
shot, but in the darkness the mongrel
got away, but since that time no hen
coops in that locality have been dis
