Was reminded of 2 old stories I had forgotten until now.
There was the local police chief, who held the whiskey as eveidence - then tested and got rid of it a half pint at a time.
A local farmer, Wickhamn, noted that he was losing one corn shock each Thursday night. The local police could not help, so he armed and hid himself inside a corn shock blind.
He was standing when suddenly a lasso caught him, and he felt himself being lifted up. He recognized the person, and said "Richard, put me down!"
Richard yelled, dropped him and ran away.
Came across Richard a few days later, he was shaken. Thought the ghost of his father had caught up with him and told him to bahave.
(On a side note, Richard felt that Wickhamn owed him a wagonload of corn from the past year.)
