der in the wilds of South America.
Arrangements for the feature of th

Chicago. Sept. 29. Interest in the !
mvsrerious murder of Miss Mildred Al

quest set for hearing at West Chlca

Among the more important witness j
cs expected were W. H. Allison, who
married the woman IT years ago, and
Everett A. Rexrow. the infatuatpd
farmer of Macomb, McDonough coun
ty, who married her last spring with
in two weeks of her divorce from Al- !
lison. A warrant charging Rexrow
with murder was sworn out last night. j
but this was largely to compel his
attendance at the inquest.

at Wayne, a suburb of this city, where
many wealthy men have their coun
try homes, on Friday night last. She
was shot in the head, the body placed
on the railroad tracks, and she was
