    Tom Raglin and young Hewitt, the youthful horse thieves of Paskenta, were held on that charge in the Superior Court last Saturday. The animal they stole was the property of J.G. Botkin, and was taken from Peterson's pasture by hewitt, who told Raglin he had borrowed the animal. It is thought, however, that Raglin knews the animal was tolen. In addition to the above chargem Raglin has one of felony embezzlement and burglary against him, having stolen a mule from a man named Sayre, near Paskenta, stealing a saddle and breaking into a barn near Corning, these last three have not as yet been placed against him, but enough evidence is at hand to warrant doing so. Raglin is well known here, having been raised in the County, but Hewitt comes from Shasta County. The preliminary examination was held at Paskenta Saturday, District Attorney Andrews and Court Reporter Grinnel attending. The bonds in each case were fixed at $500, in default of which the young men were brought to Red bluff and locked in jail to wait trial. On Thursday they were brought before Judge Ellison, and sentenced to one year each in Folsom Prison.

    Kirkwood Irrigation Ditch

    The ditch is now almost a fact. The movers in the matter have pushed things ahead and the petition has been presented to the Board of Supervisors and acted upon. We understand that parties are ready to take the bonds, and more than likely the lands south of us will have irrigation water before the fall sets in. The getters up of the Kirkland Irrigation Ditch deserve much praise for their activity and perseverance, Mr. O.E. Moore, T.C. Dennis, N. K. Spect, F. Houghton, and Geo. Flournoy, with their lawyer, Gen. Chipman, certainly have done well. When the water ets on the land there will be a big boom in land at Kirkwood and Corning.
