Donough, was arrested in Blue Eorth
early Tuesday morning upon a charge
of first degree murder for the slaying
of Frank L. Kelley of Mankato, for

body was found in the ruins of a school
house near Dayton the previous Thurs.
day. The prisoner was taken to the
Hennepin county jail and locked up.
According to the authorities robbery
was the only motive for the crime and
Slater, who is an ex-convict, has con
fessed to its perpetration.
Kelly was lured to the school house
in the belief a large quantity of liquor
was cached there and was shot down
when he discovered the ruse and re

All he got for his crime was a check
for $150, $20 in currency and his vic

Two Armies Watched Brave Arab as

description of the death of one of
his Arabian chiefs:

was a long ride down the gentle slope
and across the hollow, and we all sat
there like stone while he rushed for

hoofs sounding unnaturally loud in
our ears. We had stopped shooting
and the Turks had stopped shooting

on in this hushed evening till he was
only a few lengths from the enemy.
Then he sat up in his saddle and cried
his war cry, "Talal/^alal," twice in
a tremendous voice. Instantly all their
rifles and machine guns crashed out
together and hp and hi mare, rid

Folklore of the Hair.
A heavy head of hair indicates few
if any virtues, according to folklore
gathered from many parts of the
world. The Turks eldim that women
with hort intellect have long hair.
The Albanians say with finality, "Long
hair, little brains." Other contrib
utors say that much hair indicates un
governable temper -awd inclination to
melancholy. "If a girl has a great
deal of hair she will marry po\eity,
while the girl with little hair will mar
ry rich," according to another source.
Curly hair is a sign $f a scold, and
also early widowhood if the hair falls
in little curls at the back of the neck.
A long and peaceful life is promised
the owner of hair that grows low1
the forehead and retreats up the side
of the head o\er the temples. Chest
nut or brown hair denotes fairness in
dealings, generosity, absence of de

Parachutes Rescue Flyer.
Wireless and aeronautic science were
recently employed in a very timely
combination which saved the life of an
air-service cadet flying from Mather
field, California, over Crater National
forest in Oregon, according to an
article in Popular Mechanics Maga
zine. While in the neighborhood of
Crater lake, the spark plugs ceased
working in the engine of his plane,
and landing was necessary. Choice in
landing places was confined to either
the rugged mountain peaks below or a
small island of black lava in the middle
of the lake. After some deliberation
he chose the latter and made a land
ing in the huge cliff-rimmed cup. The
plucky pilot then set his radio outfit
in operation and after many hours of
waiting, rescue planes arrived carry
ing the necessary spark plugs. Ad
verse air currents within the great
"moon hole" prohibited the descent
of the rescuers, and so the plugs were
attached to parachutes and dropped.
The lost pilot placed the plugs, started
his engine and made a perilous take
off over the lake surface.
