John Sackett, a young man 22 years of age and living in 'Dexter, is in jail on a charge of larceny from his own father who is a hard working carpenter. The story that the father told Justice Doty Faiday, and whioh formed the basis of the warrant, was as l'ollows. " I went home last evening, and give my wife $29 in money, she counted it out while were at the supper table, and then got up and put it in a1 tureen. The boy saw where it was placed and.inside of üfteen minutes he probably got a hold of it. lle went down town and thén made a blutï of coming home and going to bed. He just laid down on the outside, and got out of the house some way. We did not seen him go. He is all right and a good hard worker, exoept when hè gels to drinking, and then he goes bad. ' When young Sackett was arrested this morning by Marshei Gerstner, he was pertty drunk, and eould not be broimlii before the Justice to-day. He was searched at the jail but only $1.50 ■ mained out of $29, if he did not take the ' amounj. From his appearance this morning he had ovidently had a right, royal night of it.
