    A sacrilegious horse thief stole a mare and buggy belonging to F.C. Clayville from the hitching rack near the Baptist church late Saturday, and made a complete getaway, not a hoof or hair of the horse being seen since. The animal was left in the shadow of a house of worship while the owner attended to business matters uptown. When he returned the horse was gone. Both the police and sheriff's office are working on the case and authorities to the north and south have been notified. The horse is described as follows: Dark brown or could be called black, weight 1,100 pounds, 14 years old with medium short tail and top buggy, with black left shaft broken and wrapped with wire. The owner offers a suitable reward.
    Forging the name of B.W. Stevens, as manager of the Phoenix Orchard company, an adept and clever check man cleaned up on Medford merchants Saturday afternoon, the tills of the saloons suffering the most. E.G. Brown, Joe Adams, B.S. Radcliffe and W.F. Isaacs ("Toggery Bill") cashed worthless checks varying from $10 to $25. The discovery was made this morning when the checks were taken to the bank, but in the meantime the penman had flown for parts unknown, and an effort has been made to catch him by telegraphing to points north and south.
