Eight Hours

They have peculiar ideas of justice in Wells county, says the New Rockford Transcript. An inhuman wretch by the name of Stout was arrested charged with rape upon the person of his 13 year old daughter. A preliminary hearing was had, and the justice found plenty of evidence to assure him the prisoner was guilty and bound him over to district court. The bond was fixed at $250, and the prisoner was let out on his own recognizance to get a bond, and apparently hasn't found it yet, and the sheriff has since been unable to find him.
