          Constable Keith, after a long chase, succeeded about four o'clock yesterday afternoon in arresting  John Vandergriff, finding him in an outhouse at  'Squire Shaner's, in Jackson township.  Vandergriff was arrested on a warrant charging him with a felonious assault on  Mrs. Lily Mann,  a neighbor, at her house one day last week.  He was tried by 'Squire Shaner, on the same charge and acquitted, and the case here will have to be dismissed.  He gave $25 bond for his appearance here before 'Squire Craycraft  Saturday.  Vandergriff is "on his muscle" somewhat, and was almost cut to pieces in a saloon fight in Edinburg several years ago, receiving some eighteen wounds.
