Going to Court—Messrs. Turner, Lindon and Bertholf & Humphrey will run regular lines of carriages between this city and Jefferson during the term of the Court. These gentlemen are all in the livery business and have accommodated our citizens during summer’s heat and winter’s cold as occasion required. They are certainly deserving a benefit when a trifle is to be made. Those going to Jefferson will certainly consult their own convenience and the interests of the “Regulars” by patronizing the old firms in preference to the new comers or interlopers.

Saturday Deputy Sheriff Smith arrested, near Appleton, a strange young man who is suspected of having stolen a silver watch from the home of Norman Humphrey, on Sixth Street, one day last summer. For obvious reasons the young man’s name is withheld for the present. He was taken before Justice Henze Monday and his preliminary examination set for October 20, he meanwhile being lodged in, the county jail.
It is claimed that the suspect was engaged in taking orders for enlarging pictures and in this capacity called at Mr. Humphrey's residence. He was told by the servant girl that nothing in was wanted in his line, after which she returned to her duties in the rear part of the house. The watch in question was lying on a shelf in the room which the agent entered, and it being missing after his departure; it is supposed that he embraced the opportunity to appropriate it. The watch was subsequently sold at Beaver Dam, and this furnished a clue to the apprehension of the suspect.
Is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery: Humphrey, Norman, b. 1820, d. 1901, 1Lt Co B 29th Wis Inf
