the collapsed Farmers and Merchants'
bank of Montgomery, Minn., the story of
which was told in The Journal last
night. Brainerd is now missing, having
left behind a letter which causes his
friends much alarm.
Under a writ of attachment the sher
iff searched the bank at Montgomery and
found $75 In cash, but was unable to get
into the vault. An examination of the
books showed cash on hand of only $604,
whereas the deposits aro close to $50,000.
Brainerd bought the bank about six
months ago from C. L. Marx.
Altho Brainerd was usually conserva
tive, it has been learned since his dis
appearance that he was working on a
"wildcat" banking scheme to establish an
international bank whose operations
should extend around the globe.
A. H. Hall, Brainerd's attorney, says
his client's disappearance is a total sur

for some time," he adds, "and I thought
I knew his business affairs thoroly, but
it seems I did not. The lumber company
here is in good shape." The company re

Captain J. W. Lawrence, United States se

Inquiries among the banks of St. Paul and
Minneapolis, "and for the first time m my
experience," said he yesterday, "I was in

my last inquiry. Several bank officers who
had held their positions for twenty years
assured me that they could not recall so
agreeable a dearth o imitation money.
"I don't expect the counterfeiters to retire
altogether after this and live upon the in

apparent than ever before that the making
of the 'queer' is by no means the popular and

Judge Dickinson of the municipal court
finished the breaking up of a tough gang
which has infested the neighborhood of
Twenty-eighth avenue S and Twenty

tenced Charles Rohlean to sixty days in
the workhouse, Rudolph Leahey to pay a
hne of $50 or go to the workhouse for
sixty days, and John McArthur to pay
a fine of $15. The boys were chargedxwith.
assaulting Norman McNeal.
The fight occurred in the hallway lead
ing to the rooms over a hardwaie store at
2814 E Twenty-sixth street, the night of
July 27. Patrolman George Ihnet arrived
too late to save McNeal a broken collar
bone. Leahey was arrested aftur a hard
fight, but the other two boys escaped and
were not arrested until last night.
Leahey acknowledged that he had been
in court on several occasions, having been
arrested for boarding a moving train, for
stealing brass and again for assaulting a
policeman. The other two had never been
in court before.
"Any man or boy coming before this
court for the first time," said Judge Dick
inson, "is entitled to some clemency, but
when he returns repeatedly and shows no
intention of reforming, he cannot hope to
receive a light sentence."

WORD FOR MACARONI
J. W. Glenlster of New York Will Attempt
Another athlete has developed the cour

them several years ago. He is J. W.
F. W. GLENISTER.
Who Will Try to Swim Niagara Rapids.
Glenister, a New Yorker, born in that city
twenty-eight years ago. The attempt will
be made Sunday, Aug. 16.
If records count for anything, Glenister
has one that bespeaks him as possessed
of skill and sand, but he Is contemplating
a feat that wil require all of the qualities
he has and more, too.
"I know that Webb lost his life in the
attempt to swim the rapids," said Glen
ister to-day, "but I am confident that I
can do it and if I were not I wouldn't be
such a fool as to take the chance. I shall
keep to mid-channel, where there are no
rocks, and expect to accomplish the feat
in from ten to fifteen minutes, for you
know that the water runs twenty-two
miles an hour at that point."

Variety of Wheat New in North
west Defended by Govern-
' ment Expert.
C. S. Scofield Says It Will Thrive
Where Spring Wheat
"A consistent and helpful consideration
of the whole macaroni wheat problem will
discover to farmers in this region certain
varieties of macaroni wheat much surer
in doubtful localities than the best of
spring wheats," said C. S. Scofield of the
United States department of agriculture,
when questioned here yesterday as to the
future of macaroni wheat.
Mr. Scofield, in recent years commis
sioned to study the subject in Algiers and
Marseilles, Is in the position of a special
ist. He sees in the production of this
cereal an opportunity for the grain men
of the northwest to become established in
the Mediterranean flour trade, just as they
have gained a foothold in England, Ger
many and other north European coun
"There is no reason that I know of why
macaroni wheat should not be as valuable
tp the farmer as the old fashioned spring
wheat," said Mr. Scofield. "There is a
broad belt stretching from the Jim river
valley on the north to western Nebraska
on the south where spring wheat produces
a crop about once in six years but where
the hardier macaroni wheat will grow
every year, and will run on an average 30
per cent heavier.
"If you were to go out to the state
experimental farm at St. Anthony Park
and see growing side by side the ordinary
spring wheat and the macaroni wheat you
would readily see that the macaroni wheat
is the more hardy and why it is that it
will thrive on two or three less inches of
rainfall each year.
Thrives Under Sirocco.
"When I was in Algiers and vicinity
two years ago I saw this macaroni wheat
thrive when the sirocco was blowing and
ordinary spring wheat would shrivel in
a moment, and I have seen it thrive when
the only clouds In the sky were dust
clouds. That is how it is that in the semi
arid lands in this prairie country, where
spring wheat Is a decidedly uncertain
crop, this macaroni wheat will make a
sure crop every year.
"I understand the objection has been of
fered that macaroni wheat flour contains
so little gluten as to make it undesirable
for bread-making purposes because it
does not rise properly with yeast. As a
matter of fact when scientists are not
agreed as to just what gluten is or does,
laymen should not attempt to decide.
What we do know is that, given the prop
er milling and macaroni wheat flour will
make as good bread as spring wheat or
any other kind. It requires a little dif
ferent process in the milling. I am posi
tive that were one of those Marseilles
millers to tell a Minneapolis miller just
what to do in making flour from macaroni
wheat that he could change his system in
"It is nqt a criticism so much as it
is an observation when I say that it seems
queer that while the Minneapolis millers
have been so successful in their conquest
of England, Germany and other north
European countries they have made no
attempt to get a foothold in the Mediter
A Marseilles Man's Question.
"When I was in Marseilles two years
ago the middlemen, or dealers in semo
lina, the flour manufacturer's product,
asked me why it was that they had to
depend on Algiers and the Black sea grain
fields when there was so much wheat to
be had in America.' It" is certainly true
that if this country^ wants to ship pure
macaroni flour to the macaroni country
it would find a rtady market at rates
which paid as well as do those on spring
wheat to other European ports.
"Those grain men in the northwest who
have not handled macaroni wheat are
likely to complain because we are intro
ducing into a territory which already pro
duces an excellent quality of wheat a new
variety which may unsettle the market.
Those grain men who have handled the
cereal say nothing, but are content. As a
matter of fact there is constant complaint
from the grain men that the wheat grow
ers are not growing grain enough. Here
is a cereal which can be grown year after
year where spring wheat cannot,
"It has only been within the last five Oakes was playedm at Breckinridge, Mmn.,
years that macaroni wheat, of which there I Hhursday Minotv won 8 to 1. At Wahpeton
are some thirty varieties much as there esterdanyd won 3 to 2. The series will
are varieties of apples, has been grown!
to any extent in the United States, and
yet the department of agriculture est!
mates the crop this year at 10,000,000
bushels, of which at least one-half will
come from the northwest.
"Practically all of this crop will be
milled and manufactured into macaroni
in Cincinnati* St. Louis, the twin cities
and other places in this country. A little
attention to milling and a little enterprise
in shipping would give the northwest
farmers of semi-arid lands a sure crop
and a sure market and a profit equal to
that on spring wheatif they cared to
sow in some of the already tested vari
ties of Durum or macaroni wheat."

Lyndale Ave. N. Residents Are Sad

Residents near Fifteenth avenue N and
Lyndale are complaining bitterly of the
condition of the latter thorofare. That
avenue is under control of the park
board at that place, but aside from some
rudimentary macadamizing it has not
been improved as much as the average
ward street. The drainage Is bad and
mud is now more than a foot deep. In
addition to this the sewers have backed
up following recent heavy rains, defiling
