WHO WAS THE THIEF? - The Windsor Tribune says that on Friday morning last Mr. Edward Armstrong, station agent at Falmouth, found a horse on his dyke and turned it into the street. A short time afterwards he found a carriage in the same field with the lap robe spread carefully over the carriage and a set of harness under the fence. In the carriage were two loaves of bread, a jar of preserves and some rope. The horse was taken care of by Mr. Judson McDonald. On Wednesday Mr. Armstrong saw a notice of a missing horse and carriage, and at once wrote to the owner. The same day he received a letter of enquiry from the owner, the letters having crossed. The owner proved to be Mr. D. A. Weaver, of Lakeville, Kings County, who stated the horse had been stolen from his barn Sept. 7th, by whom he did not know. The two loaves of bread proved to be the property of Councillor Walter Aylward, of Falmouth, from whom it was stolen the night before the horse was found. Who the thief was or where he went to, no one knows.
