Farmer Arrested

Millville (Shasta Co.), November 25.—Ezra Thomas, who owns no fewer than eleven Shasta County ranches, was arrested Saturday on complaint of Sterling A. Wise for malicious mischief, the allegation being that Thomas killed one of Wise’s hogs.  Thomas was taken to Redding and had no trouble in giving $250 bail guaranteeing his appearance before Judge Dunham on December 2nd for trial. It is supposed that Thomas shot the Wise hog, if the allegation be true, because the hog was troublesome to him.

About the only cases ever coming up in the Millville Court in troubles over marauding hogs.
