STOLEN RIG RECOVERED
DRIVEN TO OGDEN FROM SALT LAKE BY THE THIEF

Yesterday afternoon Sheriff Layne received a telegram message from Salt Lake City advising him that a horse and buggy had been stolen down there and requesting him to look out for the rig. The outfit was taken from where it was tied by the parties who had driven it from home to a meeting they were attending and last night about 7:30 the thief drove up to Corey's livery stable with the property, and with the simple request that the horse be fed well lighted from the buggy and hurried down the street. The sheriff's office was notified but too late to get any trace of the fellow: and it being quite dark at the time, no accurate description could be given of the thief. This morning, however, Deputy Sheriff Joe Bailey got wind of a party who answered the faint description given of the man, but though he has been diligently searching, he has not succeeded in locating the guilty party.
