Shelby County Indiana
The Shelby Democrat
William Shoemake, a well-known farmer residing north of the city, suffered the misfortune to lose his pocketbook while delivering some sugar corn at the canning plant Monday evening. The purse contained $22.50 in cash and the weight checks for the two loads of corn which Mr. Shoemake had delivered to the canning company. A man employed at the place, who was seen to pick up something from the ground near where Mr. Shoemake had been standing at the time the purse is supposed to have been lost, was interviewed Monday night by Sheriff Moore and G. S. Campbell, who is a brother-in-law of Mr. Shoemake, but the man denied strenuously that he had found the missing purse. He said he merely picked up a can lid.
