The Oklahoma Leader
June 5, 1916

Today a reward of $100 will be paid to A. W. Edwards of Newalla for the recovery of a horse that was stolen in its doddering old age for the second time. The animal, owned by A. J. Smith of Moore, was first taken three yeas ago. The thief was convicted and sentenced to five years' imprisonment. One hundred dollars' reward was paid. Last September the horse, then twenty-seven years old, was stolen again. George Alexander was sentenced to five years for the theft. Now the second reward for the horse is to be paid. It died after its return from the second adventure.
