Kills Friend

Embezzling County Treasurer.

Sheriff Scofield accidentally ran across A. R. Graves, the missing county treasurer, wanted at his old home at Troy, Doniphan county Kansas, on the charge of embezzling money from the county besides $2000 from an insane man, for whom he was guardian. Graves was introduced to Mr. Scofield in a hotel at Portal. He had been making his headquarters at North Portal, Can. but strayed over the line. He was brought to Minot and is awaiting the arrival of the sheriff of Doniphan county. He takes his medicine rather cooly, saying that he is intending returning to Kansas in about aweek {sp} anyway. Mr. Scofield receives $50 reward for the lucky capture.
