Elkader Register, Thur., Nov. 22, 1906. Local News column.
Saturday evening a man named Ed McGraw, entered the Merchants Hotel about midnight and appropriated two overcoats belonging to Messrs. Lodahl and Hover. Sheriff Dittmer was notified Sunday and he employed in finding the man. He was fortunate in finding him and recovering the coats. Monday McGraw was brought before Justice Fitzpatrick and was given thirty days in jail. It is a pretty good man that gets away from Sheriff Dittmer.
