Persons living in the neighborhood were very much surprised on Tuesday morning at finding in Sidney
old field, near Hollywood cemetery, the hide and entrails of a cow which had been killed the night preceding.
She was slaughtered but a few yards from the residence of Mr. William F. Drinkard
, and it is supposed that the thieves first cut the animal into pieces before carrying it away.
Although the scene of the occurrence was with in a stone's throw of twenty houses, not one of their occupants knew anything of it before morning.
Several persons who have recently lost cows have been to examine the hide of this one, but as yet none of them identifies it as their own.
