Rev. T. H. Knowles of Marion, Ohio, and who is married to a daughter of ___ Feihl of Forward twp., near Watters station, was arrested by Dep. Sheriff Vorous, last Thursday, on a charge of horse-stealing preferred by a liveryman at Marion. He was put in jail, the parties at Marion were notified of his arrest, and word came back to hold him until requisition papers could be secured. On Saturday the Chief-of-Police of Marion was here and went to the jail and Rev. K. acknowledged his guilt, saying that he did it to please his wife, who wanted to come home, when he had no money; and he volunteered to go back with the policeman, without putting him to the trouble of first going to Harrisonburg to secure the proper papers.  [Butler Citizen. (Butler, Pa.), 24 Aug. 1905]
