Two interesting newspaper articles, one BY J P Sand, and the other about him. The first had to do with horses stolen from J P's brother Mike Sand (yup, our great grandpa). Evidently, JP's nose was out of joint because of an article in the Little Falls "Sun" newspaper, which we don't have and probably don't need. Thing is, it's kind of amazing that he remained deputy when he was so publically snarky here about Rasicot. This was in the Little Falls Transcript on September 21, 1883:
Evidently, JP was a better (or at least more trusted) deputy four years later, when this account appeared in the Little Falls Herald (September 23, 1887). Now he was a hero--cool!
