To The Public.
I desire to say that Then I took the
agency for ZEMO, it was after a thor
ough investigation as to the merit and
curative properties of this remedy for
eczema, pimples and dandruff. I frank
ly admit, ZEMO has far exceeded my
expectations as a cure for skin disea
ses. I am pleased to state that I shall
continue the agency asZEMO gives the
best satisfaction of any similar reme
dy I have ever sold. My customers
like ZEMO because it is a clean, vege
table liquid for external use. ZEMO
cures by drawing to the surface of the
skin and destroying the germ life that
causes the disease, leaving the skin
clean and healthy. It does not soil
the clothing or linens and can be used
freely on infants.
We will give a booklet on skin di
seases and explain to any person how
they can be cured at home of any form
of sttin or scalp disease by this clean,
scientific preparation. Reliable Drug

RESULT OF FAMILY TROUBLE
Otter Tail County Farmer Kills Hi«
Brother-in-Law and Then Ends
His Own Life.
A shocking tragedy occured near
Watasco, a station eighteen miles west
of Fergus Falls. Wenzel Sofata, a
Bohemian farmer, who is well known
in that neighborhood, was taken ill
some time ago and went to a hospital
in Breckenndge. It was thought that
he would not recover and the story is*
that his wife sold off everything they
had in anticipation of his death. He
recovered and returned to his home,
but his wife refused to live with him
longer. Sofata blamed John Jarak,
his wife's brother, for his domestic
troubles, believing he advised Mrs. So
fata to take the course she was tak
Sofata secured a double barreled
shotgun and lay in wait for Jarak,
whose home was on an adjoining
farm. Just as Jarak was starting for
the harvest field he fired both barrels.
Jarak fell from the binder dead and
Sofata reloaded and put another
charge into his dead body.
He then loaded the weapon again
and turned it upon himself, but the
charge only cut his chin and nose.
He then turned it directly into his
neck and head and the charge caused
almost instant death.

SAID TO HAVE CONFESSED
Le Sueur County Farmer Rearrested
on Murder Charge.
Martin O'Malley, a Le Sueur county
farmer, has been rearrested on the
charge of murder in the first degree
for the alleged poisoning of Mary and
Francis Bergland, two and three years
of age, his two stepchildren.
After the release of O'Malley, who
had been previously arrested on this
charge, County Attorney E Burnet
took the matter up with the attorney
general and they came to the conclu
sion that a detective should be hired
in the case.
The detective worked on the case a
few days and succeeded, after two
nights of hard sweating, it is alleged,
in getting a written confession from
The case will come before the grand
jury in September.
ACTUAL WORK HAS BEGUN
Canadian Northern Will Push Line to
Actual work on the construction of
the Duluth, Winnipeg and Pacific road,
the extension of the Canadian North
ern from Virginia to Duluth, began
Monday, when workmen started opera
tions on the Duluth end of the line.
Camps have been established at
Smithville, a suburb of Duluth just a
mile or two this side of the steel plant
site, and from 1,000 to 1,500 men will
be housed in these camps. -.
The first section of the road just out
side Duluth will be by far the most ex
pensive to construct. There is a huge
rock cut 1,600 feet in length and a tun
nel about 500 feet long to build. The
men camped at Smithville will be put
to work on this part of the contract.
Minneapolis Man Drowned.
With his wife watching his struggle
for life Charles Crosby, head book
keeper of the Minneapolis General
Electric company, was drowned in
Lake Langdon, at Mound, this
state. Mr. Crosby, who was said to
be an expert swimmer, rowed
about 250 feet from shore to reach
deep water and then jumped over
board for a swim. His boat drifted
away from him while he was in the
water and on attempting to swim to it
he suddenly went down. It is thought
he was seized with cramps. _f
Two Unknown Men Kilted,
A westbound local freight train on
the Great Northern Tailway was
wrecked near Erskine. About twenty
five cars, containing various commod
ities, were completely destroyed and
the track badly torn up. Two unknown
men were killed.

John Lind has returned to Seattle
from his trip to Alaska, but he has re
fused to discuss his nomination for

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER DIE
Drive Team Into Lake and Are
Mrs. Peter A. Anderson and daugh
ter Laura, aged eleven, were drowned
in Grindstone lake near Sandstone.
Mrs. Anderson and daughter started
for Groningen, a few miles from the
lake, near which they resided, with a
horse and buggy to meet some friends
at the station.
There was no witness to the drown
ing, but it is supposed that they drove
the horses to the lakeside for water
and drove too far from the shore, or
the horses became unmanageable and
overturned the rig, throwing the occu
pants into the water. The two were
not missed until several hours after
the accident, when a search was made
for them and the horses and buggy
were found on the lake shore The
body of the mother was found in shal
low water, near the shore, while the
body of the daughter was found some

Minnesota Youth Is Crushed to Death
George W. Roots, aged nineteen, of
Farmington was almost instantly
killed by being run over by a thresh

Witcher near that place. He was sit
ting on the tool box of the engine,
which was being backed out of the
yard by Steve Harrington, the owner,
and, losing his balance, fell between
the back wheel and the platform, and
the large wheel passed over his chest.
He lived only a few minutes.

Indian Agent Way has returned to
Cass Lake from a trip to Deer River,
where he destroyed a quantity of liq
uor. Besides several barrels of
whisky, malt and several cases of
"sealed quarts" were broken and the
contents spilled. Deer River is one of
the places where every saloon was or
dered closed by the" Indian depart
ment last fall. As a result "bootleg

Jump From Stack Is Fatal.
Jumping from the top of a stack of
grain in the harvest field on his farm
near Viola, R. C. Davidson met a
horrible death when the handle of a
pitchfork penetrated his abdomen. His
son removed the fork handle and car
ried his father into the home. A phy
sician was called and the patient was
removed without delay to the hospital.
He died there several hours later in
Three Children Drowned.

Mother of Former Governor of Fez
Hung by Chains to Tear Flesh of
Arms, While Hand Is Crushed In
Damp Rawhide—One Prisoner Drag
ged Through Streets In Iron Cage.
The question is being asked in Eu
rope, and asked with more and more
insistence, how long is the brute who
is now the ruler of Morocco to be al
lowed to torture and kill his subjects?
To read "the well authenticated re
ports of atrocities perpetrated by this
man makes many shudder and wonder
whether it can really be true that Mo
rocco is only a few hours' distance
from some of the most celebrated cit
ies of Europe. Fresh instances are
continually being brought to light of
Mulai Hafid's cruelty.
As is well known, the moment he ob
tained the throne he began to mutilate
and torture his prisoners, his proceed
ings being so abominable that the con
suls of the powers at Fez drew up a
collective protest and demanded that
in future all punishments involving
mutilation or lingering death should
Threw Him to Lions.
Mulai Hafid's reply was the putting
to death by throwing to lions of one
of his prisoners, the pretender, El
Roghi, who for weeks previously had
been subjected to torture, physical and
mental, one of the methods of torture
devised by the sultan being the exhibi
tion of his captive cramped up in an
iron cage, which was drawn through
But this was only a beginning. Story
after story of torture, mutilation and
death has come from Morocco. One of
the latest of them is in regard to rela
tives of Ben Aissa, the late governor
of Fez, who bimself, having incurred
the sultan's anger, or, rather, being an
object of his cupidity, for the purpose
of the proceedings was to disclose hid
den treasure supposed to be in Ben
Aissa's possession, was tortured to
The mother of Ben Aissa's wife was
then tortured, and recently she was
discovered, just alive, after upward
of six weeks in close confinement in a
dark cell in heavy fetters.
Ben Aissa's wife is believed to have
undergone a month of tortures. Per
sons acquainted with Moorish customs
have been able to gather from her con
dition what she has undergone. First,
they say, her right hand was sewed up
in a damp rawhide, which, by contract
ing, crushed the hand and rendered it
useless Then she was hung up bj
ropes or chains fastened to her fore
arms and wrists, which had to bear
her whole weight, the strain cutting
deeply into the flesh, and her legs and
feet were at the same time chained
Women Expose Cruelties.
Attempts were undoubtedly made to
conceal these cruelties, and the credit
of exposing them is due to the perti
nacity of the two women of the Fez
medical mission, Miss Mellett and Miss
Denison, who would not be put off
until they had made a medical exam
ination also to the efforts of Mine
Murat, the wife of a French doctor,
and of Mr. Macleod, the British consul
Six weeks after the tortures were in
flicted the wretched woman's right
shoulder was dislocated, possibly bro
ken, and much swollen, causing intense
pain. Her right arm hung almost use
less, and the hand was apparently per
manently closed It showed scars and
unhealed wounds—the effect of chains
or ropes—and her legs and feet were
