SAM DOSS CAPTURES WASHINGTON COUNTY
The citizens in the vicinity of Irondale and Brule in Washington county have
been annoyed considerably by a series of petty burglaries and thefts. On
last Tuesday night they sent for Sam Doss to assist in rounding up the gang.
Doss, on arrival at Brule, went immediately to work. By two o'clock in the
morning he had rounded up Claud Nicholson and his brother. They confessed
to having robbed Mrs. Ramsey's store and gave up the goods which they had
hid. Among the loot recovered were 15 shirts, 30 pairs of shoes and a
miscellaneous assortment of tabaccos and other articles. Doss also ran down
a man by the name of Vineyard who had stolen four tires from Dr. Roberts of
Belgrade. The tires were recovered.
