LOST 8-R00M HOUSE.
Minneapolis, Aug. 15. Twin

eyes open for anyone wandering
around with an 8-room house un

utterly lacking in clues.

He quit working for the Journal
when that paper seized the oppor

strikebreaking bonus of $1.50 a
Sancier did not leave town. He
and his companions figured that
there would be a street car strike
and easy pickings for strikebreak

porting themselves in the mean
time by stealing suitcases.1
