A gang of horse thieves seem to have been operating in the southern part of this state, and in South Dakota. F. S. Ward and T. Amunson of Wolsey, Beadle county, lost two horses in September stolen from their pasture. The animals were traced 150 miles north and found in the passession {sp} of LaMoure county residents who had bought them of a stranger. Messrs Ward and Amunson say this same man is believed to have made three trips into this state from South Dakota, each time driving a bunch of horses picked up out of pastures en route. Several horses are at Dickey awaiting claimants.
