          William Bush, whose arrest with the young men who were passing counterfeit money, was mentioned Friday, suffered the penalty of being caught in bad company, like the geese in the fable.  He was allowed to go free with nothing worse against him than a small fine for carrying concealed weapons, and returned home rejoicing, glad he was alive.  This experience will doubtless prove a warning to him in future to beware of wicked companions.
