Mr. Adam Walters, the victim of the confidence game on the N.P. train Saturday morning as it was leaving St. Paul, by which he was euchred out of $150, and from the loss of which he landed in Jamestown "broke," received a message on Monday announcing the capture of the victimizer. He departed with his wife to interview him and it is hoped will return with his ducats.

Walters, the victimized, returned from St. Paul Thursday with all the good dollars he lost and twenty-five in addition that the con. men gave him to not appear against them. Friend Walters, keep a tight grip on thy scrip in the future.
