Horse Rustling in DeKalb in 1917
From the October18, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1917, 100 Years Ago.
"Mark Campbell reported to the police station last night that someone had stolen his horse from the hitch rail yard on Second street.
"The owner did not leave his address, merely said the horse was a sorrel and then started out of the station on the run, in an effort to locate the animal."
Not too many horses stolen in downtown DeKalb any more. You know what they do to horse thieves around these parts.
Sounds A Bit Horsey to Me. --RoadHorse
