Hoover, Julius Martin, Martin Burns and George
Smith are in the city jail charged with rob
bery, and it is expected that another charge
which rarely appears on the blotter will be
made against them.
Late last night a young fellow named Ralph
Kade, who has been about town for some time
hunting for work, was approached by Smith and
asked to go down to the railroad yards. At a
se cluded spot Kade and Smith were joined by
three other men. They proposed to Kade that
he make "easy money" by posing as a cripple
and begging on the street.
When Kade refused to enter Into their nefar
ious scheme, he was set upon and badly beaten.
AS soon as he could, escape, he reported the
affair to the police, who went immediately to
the yards and arrested four men who were hiding
In a boxcar. Kade Identified one of them as
the man who had assaulted him.
On searching the others the officers found
property which they knew to have been stolen.
It was identified as part of the plunder taken
from the room of J. A. Hutchinson, which had
been entered and ransacked a few nights ago.
Another of the men had "phony" Jewelry,
and another was a man who lately had been
begging with a card stating that he was a
miner who had been injured in an explosion.
This man was. a miserable looking specimen of
humanity and appears to have been injured in
the back. The officers, however, declare that
his injuries are assumed to aid him in his
begging. PYTHIANS DEDICATE MONUMENT

Speoial to. The Journal.
Menominee, Mich., May 31.An epidemic of
library robberies, such as was recorded In this
region last summer, has again broken out. Last
year nearly all of the fine public libraries from
Pond du Lac, Wis., to Marquette were broken
open, some /badly damaged and hundreds of
dollars stolen. Already several libraries in
southern Wisconsin have been robbed, and the
library at Kaukaima has heen entered and rau
sacked. The robbers are evidently working north
again, and special precautions are being taken
to guard the hue Spies library here.
Dines Off Dynamite.
A farmer living near Menominee reports that
recently a cow of his ate twenty-three sticks
of dynamite. He had left the dynamite in a
pile on a stump, and when he returned the cow
was eating it. He stood on the other side of
the field expecting the cow to blow up, but she
returned to eating grass, none the worse for her
Several head of stock, however, have been
killed by eating dynamite, which they seize
with avidity on account of the salty taste of
the paper. When it is eaten the dynamite forms
a sort of gas in the tissues of the animal's
body so that it swells up until a bursting blood
vessel causes death.

newcomers and their buildings were of little
value. The damage to standing timber was not
