and unskilled in the use of his fists,
was decoyed from his newspaper of
fice to the nearhy-4nterurban station,
he says, by a telephone message pur
porting to come from a friend. On
reaching the station Musser stepped
from behind a wall that had con
cealed him and hit Person in the
back of the head, felling him to the
ground. Musser weighs 200 pounds,
Person is a little fellow, weighing 120.
Person was slugged, pounded and
choked by Musser Until bystanders
pulled Musser away from him.
The bully strikebreakef tried to
break away from the men holding
him; cursing Person and threatening
to smash him to a pulp. Just as he
did break from restrainirig hands and
start at Person, the little editor, with
blood streaming down his face, drew
a revolver' and emptied it into Mus
ser, who dropped dead in his tracks.
The editor gave himself up and
was placed in jail. An effort will be

torney, Person was able to retain
control of his newspaper when it was
threatened with bankruptcy as the

against him by Musser's family.

' imprisoned editor, and pledges to
provide funds for his defense when
his case is tried have been promised
by labor unions throughout the coun
try. , o o

Before baking potatoes, let them
stand in hot water for fifteen min
