          While digging the cellar under the Cheney buildings on the Public Square this morning, workmen unearthed two small sized daguerreotypes which are supposed to be of the late Colonel Colescott and his son Robert, and which were lost there directly after or during the war.  The picture supposed to be Colonel Colescott represents a man in a soldier's uniform.  The Colescott family lived in the building on the ground where the pictures were found.  The pictures are well preserved and are in the possession of  James Sexton.

Thieves at Work.

          Sometime on Tuesday forenoon, Miss Caddie Colescott, drew from the bank $70 which she had earned by teaching music; this she took home and woman like, put between the matresses of her bed.  About 8 o'clock yesterday morning she went to get her money and it was gone.  When it was taken or how the villains got into the Col's. house is a mystery.  She only knows that when she came out of the bank one or two suspicious characters who make our town their headquarters were watching her closely.
