only confuses them, causing them to

charges of homicide.
Rudolph Norhaus, who was
brought to Trenton by the county

lowed to go to his home In New
Brunswick. .. Prosecutor Crossley
stated that he was entirely satisfied
that Northaus was in no way con
nected with the murder of the aged
Norhaus was not at any time un
der arrest, as the prosecutor (ox
pressed the opinion from the begin
ning that the man knew nothing of
tho crime and that his presence In
Dutch Neck was the result of a pre
arrangement between himself and
Sears to go on a gunning trip.
After having submitted Sears to
a severe examination, Prosecutor
Crossley and County Detective Kirk
ham went to Dutch Neck and, as the
prosecutor expressed It himself.
Sears' mother, the housekeeper In
the Armstrong household, was Im
pounded In the custody of consta
bles at a bouse In Dutch Neck.

established the fact that the Rev.
Armstrong and his wife were killed
by shots from a double-barreled gun,
which was found standing in a cor
ner of the kitchen of the Armstrong
home. This gun was borrowed by
Sears two weeks ago from a neigh
bor for gunning purposes.

is a negress. Mrs. Sears has been
housekeeper in the Armstrong fam
ily for more than 30 years, having

Washington, D. C. (Special). One
of tho strangest facts observed In tbe
forest fires which occasionally sweep
over tbe woods of Northern Michigan
and Minnesota is the burning of tbe
ground. Falling leaves, bark and
twigs and dying plant life gradually
accumulate In the forests. The rains
and dense shade keep the mass damp.
Mosses grow on the surface of the de
caying vegetation. The half-rotted
stuff settles down and hardens. Trees
spring up and their roots take bold
in the peaty substance. .
Then comes a season of drought,
and tbe dampness slowly evaporates.
A hunter or woodman or farmer
builds a fire, or a railway engine
drops a spark. Tbe dry surface of
the ground is Ignited and a slow can
cer of fire eats deep among the root
of the trees, smouldering for weeks
or months. Then one day a strong
wind springs up. Trees, undermin
ed by the fire, topple over, their
roots throwing out showers of sparks
and burning masses of Under-like
material. Flames burst out In every
direction, and like a flash, a forest
fire is in full sweep.
Trail Of the Fire Fiend.
The forest fire which occurred in
Northern Minnesota a few weeks ago
broke out in many places at once,
because many of theso smouldering
fires were Blmpiy awaiting the gale
which sprang up on October 7. In
this fire about 1,600 square miles of
country were burned. The thriving
villages of Beaudctte, with a popula
tion of 1,200, and Spooner, with 850,
were swept out of existence in an
hour. 'Hundreds of "homesteaders,"
carving their farms out of the for
ests, lost their homes and saved their
lives by lowering themselves into
wells, or plunging into streams or
ponds. Thirty lives were lost, and
3,000 persons were left homeless,
with food, live stock, farm crops and
machinery all gone.
When tbe agents of the American
Red Cross reached the burned dis
trict they realized that winter was at
band In this north country and that
their greatest task was tbe swift con
struction of a large number of shelt
ers. It was a big Job, and it had to
be quickly done. Here Is the man
ner In which the Red Cross met the
Two simple designs for bouses
were prepared, of one and two rooms,
respectively. These required only a
few standard sizes of lumber, and tar
paper took the place of shingles and
plaster. Lumber was rushed in from
Canada, the Secretary of the Treas
ury at Washington having waived the
customs duty on supplies required by
the Red Cross. A half dozen car
penters were hurried to the scene.
Then "building bees" were organ
ized, with one carpenter In command
of each. A half dozen neighbors,
with saw and hammer, would help
Ole Olson build his house. Then all.
Including Olson, would move along
and build Hans Hanson's house, and
Building "Bees" Hammed.
Tbe speed with which these
houses were erected, where several
"bees" were "humming" at the same
time, wa startling. While this was
going on the Red Cross was hurry
ing Into tbe fire district from Duluth
and St. Paul and Minneapolis big or
der of door, window, stoves, bed
ding, chairs, kitchen utensils and
provisions. A rapidly a the little
houses were ready they were fur
nished and stocked up with food and
the famine moved In.
It wa a desperate race with win
ter, and the Red Cross won. While
the race was at Its swiftest there was
not a busier spot between the oceans
than this black and desolate stretch
of country along tbe northernmost
rim of Minnesota. Much remain to
be done, but nobody is going to
freeze or starve.
