SAID HE WAS SORRY TO LEAVE HIS FRIENDS BUT DID NOT CARE TO STAY IN JAIL
Medora, N.D. Jan 16—Arthur Cheneworth, who was arrested some time since, for stealing a train load of horses from A.C. Huidekoper, left jail last evening. He left a very nice letter, bidding good by to all his friends, and saying how sorry he was to leave them, but under the circumstances thought it best to go, and that if he stole a horse he would return it in due time. Mr. Cheneworth was a very nice gentleman and from a good family, and a great worker in the church. For some reason he did not care to stay and stand his trial; in fact his note said he much objected to being in jail.
