1891 Missing Two Hundred Dollars

On Friday afternoon, Mr. W.J. Miner lost a roll of bills amounting to $200, as he supposed somewhere upon the main street in the village and diligent search was made without effect for some time and he had about given up finding it. On Monday morning, as he was feeding his cow, he looked in the feed box and there lay his roll of bills. It had doubtless dropped into the bin as he had stooped over to get out some feed and had been taken from there and put into the feed box without his noticing it. To say that he was happy will hardly describe his feelings.

Nothing seemed to go unnoticed when it came to reporting the news by G.L. Adams of The Fowlerville Review. Mr. Miner was a prosperous grocer and dry goods merchant.
