Elkader Register, Fri., 6 Oct. 1882.
On Sunday morning last, Mr. Wm. Hyde, of this township, had a horse stolen from his pasture. The horse with several others was turned into the pasture in the morning, and at noon he was missing. One of the New York waifs who had been working at John Latham's for the past year is also missing, and it is thought that he stole the horse. His name is George Smith.

Last Sunday an officer from Hawkeye, Fayette county, arrived in town with the young boy who recently stole a horse from the premises of Wm. Hyde, in this township, also bringing the horse. The boy was captured while visiting with his parents who reside at Hawkeye. His name proves to be Henry Huggins instead of George Smith.
