About ten days ago C.W. Wilcox of Milford went to Carthage borrowed six hundred dollars, got on the train and started for Pierce City, since when he has not been heard from.  Mrs. Wilcox was in town yesterday and stated that she knows no reason why he should absent himself and is afraid that he has been foully dealt with.  We trust her fears are groundless and that Mr. Wilcox will soon put in an appearance.
