          Samuel McClure, who resides in Hendricks township, came to town in a carriage this morning, bringing his family with him.
          After arriving here he drove his team to the hitchrack near the court house and then went to see the parade.  While Mr. McClure was absent, some one went to the buggy and stole a basket filled with good things to eat.
          When the family returned to the carriage to get their dinner, it had disappeared and bologna, cheese and crackers composed the noonday meal.
