A.L. Jones and Mr. Becker of Durham caught two boys Tuesday morning who had broken into and robbed the Borton Store at Durham, taking about sixty-five dollars in small money, some neckties and silk shirts.
The thieves made the mistake of walking out of town and as the roads were muddy from the recent rain the two men were able to follow their tracks in the mud.
The two boys, 18 and 19, gave Wellington as their home. The money they took was recovered. One of the boys was wearing a couple suits of coveralls and had pinned a lot of neckties and shirts under one suit.
Mr. and Mrs. John Ehrlich and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Batt and daughter Eldena arrived home from their California trip last Saturday. They came the southern route and made the trip in ten and a half days. They all enjoyed the trip very much.
