I am anxious to know If the National Demo

myself feel strongly that the pretent oppor

evident to all who look below the surface of

burst, the bladder -been pricked, the fraud
exposed, and the good men who were lured

GERMAN EDITOR'S IDKA OF THE
LETTER FROM THE EX-CHAS

BICYCLISTS FOR SOIXD MOXEY.
Wheelmen OrR-unlce a Club— Police
Cnpt. Day Dead— Minneapolis
The Hon. Gustav Donald, of Daven
port, 10., editor of the lowa Reform,
a Democratic weekly newspaper de
voted to the interests of sound money,
delivered a two-hours' address to an
audience of Germans last evening at
the West Side Turner hall. His address
was given under the auspices of the
German- American Sound Money league
of Minnesota, and handled the money
question in a comprehensive manner.
It was given in the German language.
In brief, he said that money must have
an intrinsic value and cannot be cre
ated by government flat. The mone
tary system of the United States was
discussed, showing that the gold stand
ard was not established by the act of
1V73, but by prior legislation, notably
the acts of 1834, 1837 and 1853. Under
our present system the silver dollar is
coined by the government and is in
possession of the government, as the
government holds the bullion in its
vaults. Under the present system the
government receives the profit, that is
the difference between the coinage and
commercial value of the silver bullion.
Under the free coinage system the sil
ver owner would pocket this seignor
age Under the present system the
government is in honor bound to main
tain the parity between gold and silver
coin. If we should now go to a silver
basis, we would be lik" the creditor
who could pay 100 cents on the dollar,
but says to his debtor: "I will settle
with you on a basis of 50 cents to
the dollar." The Germans in this coun
try have ever stood for the honor of
the flag, and for liberty and rights of I
the people. In the Revolution German
soldiers formed the body guard of
Washington, and when Lincoln made
a call for troops they were the first to !
The speaker then discussed the
mosey question from the standpoint of j
Germany, and showed that until 1871 j
Germany was practically upon a silver i
basis, although there never was free !
coinage of silver in Germany. Speak- j
ing of the Bismarck letter to Gov. Cul- !
bertson of Texas, the speaker said it
amounted only to a suggestion that j
this government make the attempt to |
coin silver in free and unlimited j
amounts. He said it was like when !
a number of people were to cross a j
swamp, the one with the highest boots j
would go in first. Bismarck says to j
Uncle Sam: "You have high boots and j
should try the swamp first. In case j
you get across safely the rest of us ]
fellows will follow you."
The speech is said to have been one
of the best ever given to a body of I
Germans in this city. Matthias Kees
presided over the meeting.

Council Committee Will Take Ac- '
A Joint meeting of the council com
mittee on ways and means and an al
derman from each ward of the city was !
hold yesterday afternoon, to take action
regarding 1 the statement recently fur
nished by City Comptroller Nye, with
reference to the estimates of the dif
ferent municipal departments for next
year's appropriations. The report must
go through the committee's hands and
take its chances with the pruning knife
before it can come before the council.
A meeting of the council will be held
tonight and it was hoped that the mat
ter would be in such shape as to be
disposed of on this occasion. But
cwing to the absence of most of the
heads of departments, and to a gen
eral desire to postpone action until the
state board of equalization has made
known the result of its deliberations,
the committee adjourned for one week
It is important that the committee take
action before Oct. 10, as the city charter
provides that all estimates for a gen
eral fund must be decided upon before
The committee on street grades and
additions took a real lively fall out of
the McLeod Stone company. A repre
sentative of that concern appeared be
fore the committee meeting and handed
in a petition for the opening of a cer
tain thoroughfare near Maple Hill cem
etery, to be known and designated as
Cemetery street. It appears that there
Is an excellent chance for a stone quar
ry in this vicinity and it was shown
that If the street was opened up it
would be of great benefit to the com
pany, but of little use to the surround
ing residents. The committee, there
fore, promptly refused to grant the pe
tition. Aid. Phillips remarked that
there was as much sense In opening
uj) Cemetery street as in putting Tomb
stone place Into shape for traffic.
The committee on ways and means
at its individual session, sat down hard
on a proposition made by Secretary
Danforth. of the Commercial club
through Mayor Pratt, to secure an apl
propriation of $100 from the council
with which to purchase 800 copie3 of !
Leslie's Monthly Magazine, the same to |
be used for advertising purposes. It I
seems that during the recent carnival
a representative of that magazine was

trated article descriptive of the Twin

was suggested that 1,000 copies be pur
chased by the city and placed at the
disposal of the heads of the different
dfpartments who could send marked
copies to various points, thus advei
tising the city.
By a unanamous vote the committee
refused to consider the proposition and
Aid. Harvey voiced the sentiment of
the others in remarking that the city
was pretty well advertised at present
and that here was no occasion for
blowing very loud on the municipal horn
until next year. Besides that, there
was no money at the disposal of the
committee for such purposes.

♦ Hi: NEARLY AT AS EXD.
Labors of the Prenend Grant! Jnrj-
The grand Jury practically concluded
Its la.bors yesterday and will probably
make a final report this afternoon. The
morning session was taken up with
the examination of witnesses in a small
forgery case, and questioning report- j
ers for an afternoon paper relative to j
its reasons for printing a false state- i
ment to the effect that the jury had
been investigating a case and examin- !
intr a witness which had never been j
before the body.
In the afternoon Charles A. Cole was j
failed before the jury to give evidence j
; in the matter of the Jeffery building ;
: fire last June. The Jury was already
1 quite indignant at the publication of
; what was supposed to be the statement
he had made, and was prepared to In- i
vestigate fully both sides of the case. ]
Several prominent business friends of ;
Mr. Jeffery had taken action, and the i
result was that W. L. Harris was on I
\ hand armed with documents to prove j
' the absence of any motive whatever
I on the part of the accused for setting
', the fire. Mr. Harris had offered a
round sum for the Jeffery stock, be
: fore the fire, in cash, the amount be
ing 50 per cent more than could be se- |
cured for insurance, and, therefore, the
fire was an absolute loss to him.
Cole was not before the jury for a |
: very long period, and Mr. Harris was
■ examined for three quarters of an hour,
j with his documents in evidence. Fol
lowing him, Fire Marshal Pierce and
, several people living in the vicinity of
, the building were called. Seven wit
i nesses were examined, five remaining
• to be heard this morning, when the
, case will be disposed of. The jury will
probably make a report in the case
, this afternoon.
It is generally believed that in the
: absence of any motive, which is prac-
I tically certain, the jury will hardly
j return an Indictment.
The insurance agents connected with
I the insurance on the building, while
they admit they have not paid the
. adjusted amount of los«, claim that the
! Investigation was not started by them, j
j and that they do not know how it did
first begin. Thes' will not talk about
the matter further.
CAN JOHN DAY SMITH PROVE IT?
Charles A. Pillsbury Calls I pou Htm
to Do So or Retract.
The only explanation that has been
i given by the leaders of the fusion
i forces of Populism and Democracy to
I off-set the effect of the great busi
i ness sound-money demonstration, has
| been the claim that there was a whole
i sale intimidation by the employers.
', This claim has been made indiserim
i inately, involving the names of the
j best and most liberal business men in
\ Minneapolis. Among them is that of
C. A Pillsbury, who is charged by John
j Day Smith, in a Washlngto interview,
] with having used coercion to make
j his employes vote for McKinley.
Sept. 24, 1596.
i Hon. John Day Smith, Minneapolis, Minn.
Dear Sir: I see in the morning papers what
i purports to be an interview with you in
1 Washington, in which it is stated that "he
| (Smith) particularly refers to the efforts of
! the Pillsburys to," as he alleges, "coerce
! their employes Into voting for McKinley."
1 I have heard before that this remark has
been made in this city, but this is the first
time I have been able to trace it to any au
j t*entic source.
I write this letter to simply challenge you.
! or any other man on earth, to prove the
truth of your assertion; and In the hope
that, if you cannot do so, you ere honest
enough to take it back. Respectfully,
— Chas. A. Pillsbury.
Not only the employer, C. A. Pills
bury, but the employes have taken
: the first opportunity to enter a denial |
to the charges of coercion made by Mr. !
Smith. A delegation from the Pillsbury '
"A" mill requested the publication of j
a statement prepared by them, which
! Is unequivocal and forceful enough for I
| the purpose. J. R. Morrison, the secre- j
i tary of the club stated that he was I
authorized by the club to offer to pay j
j $5 for any evidence of coercion or the !
| name of any man in the "A" mill who |
: would claim that he had been coerced. I
I The statement recites that 200 employes [
of the mill met yesterday and adopted :
resolutions protesting against Mr. I
Smith's charges of coercion, demand
ing proof or a retraction.
A DOUBLE DIVORCE.
It Bobs Fp Serenely in the District
There was a peculiar state of things
yesterday In the district court in the
actions for divorce by Carl Frederick -
sen against Katarina Fredericksen, and
Marie Nelson against Wilhelm Nelson.
Those who have heard of a double
wedding will be surprised to hear of a
double divorce. In both cases the
witnesses were the same, and after the
Fredericksen case had been heard
the court thought the divorce should
be granted, but after hearing the evi
dence in the second case some light
was thrown on the first case, and the
court will ask for more evidence.
In the Nelson case, it was shown
that the husband had the wife arrest-
I ed in the municipal court, and never
appeared against her, so the divorce
was granted for cruelty.
In the Fredericksen case the court
was of the opinion that there was some
suspicion that there might be col
lusion, so he will ask for more evi
dence before signing the order, al
though before hearing the second case
a verbal order for divorce had been

realized that the structure was on

was cut off and they were compelled
to jump from the windows. There was
no hesitation on the part of the older
of the boys, who were almost com
pelled to force their younger comrades
to make the leap. Twenty-one were
injured, but none fatally. The building
was soon burned to the ground, and
all its contents destroyed. Nothing
was saved by the faculty or students
who were compelled to take shelter in
nearby houses in town and in Mexico

BORDERED OX RIOT.
Polimh Catholic Congresa at Buffalo
BUFFALO, N. V., Sept. 24.— There
was no general meeting of the Polish
Roman Catholic congress until late in
the day. the different committees be
ing hard at work. The meeting of the
Polish National Alliance committee
was an exciting one. Dean Pitass ad
vised all Catholics to abandon the de
position of the present alliance lead
ers, the alliance then to be taken into
the fold. When the report of the com
mittee was read to the full congress
and a vote called for its adoption a
regular riot ensued. A rush was made
for the platform, many delegates be
ing carried off their feet. Matters were
assuming a decidedly dangerous aspect
when Papal Delegate Mr. Warwar
zyniak mounted a chair and beseeched
the delegates to come to order. It was
some time before order was l-estored.
Then a vote was taken and the report
of the committee deposing the officers
of the alliance was carried.
At today's meeting of the congress
o£ the Independent Polish Roman
Catholic church It became a part of the
constitution that none of the member*
should Bubmit to the "rule of a bishop
of the Romish church.
A \ew Fad That May Develop Into a
One of the most injurious and dangerous of
new .fashions is the tea cigar-nte, made ■ f the
unbroken leaf of green tea, slightly moisten
ed. The feeling of a tea Mgn 3tte la the
mouth is peculiar. The taste is no- so d'&a
greeable as might be supposed, but thr ef
fect on the tyro Is a sense of thickenirg in
the head and a disposition to take neW of
something to sit down. ft the beginner
quits them, that settles it, he will not try
tea cigarettes again. If, however, the smoker
sits down and tries a second cigarette inhal
ing it deeply, then the thickening feeling
passes and is succeeded by one -of intense
exhilaration. The nerves are stimulated until
the smoker feels like flying, skirt (iuncir.p. or
doing something else entirely out of the com
mon way. This stage lasts f.s long as the
smoke continues, which Is until ihe reaction
of the stomach sets in. Words cannot de
scribe the final effects of the t^a clrgarette.
The agony of the opium fiend is a shadow to
that of the nauseated victim i.f ihe tea cigar
ette. It will be hours before food can" be
looked at. yet the first step toward i cure is
a cup of tea.

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 24.— Five
hundred students, assisted by a band
of the First regiment guards, of Con
necticut, broke up the address by Wm.
J. Bryan at this place this afternoon.
A platform had been erected on the
historical "New Haven green," and
about that platform, for more than an
hour before the nominee arrived, from
10,000 to 15,000 people had surged to
and fro. To the right of the stand ire
: students had congregated, awaiting the
arrival of the nominee.
At 2:15 o'clock Mr. Bryan was driven
j in a carriage through the 00-.yd to
the platform. Immediately al! waa
confusion in front. The students broke
forth in their full college cheer be
ginning with the frog chorus from
Aristophanes, following with '.hree long
Vales, nine 'Rahs, a Yale an 1 "Mc-
Kinley." The crowd surged to and
fro in front of the stand, a».l a dozni
i policemen fought it from the platform.
! There were cheers for the n osiuee, but
j from the right of the stand the stu
j dents repeatedly broke forth with their
yell and for twenty-five minutes it was
impossible for Mr. Bryan to ma -re r ;>n- :
Joseph B. Sargent, the Democratic
nominee for governor, who was to in
troduce Mr. Bryan, tried to quiet the
yelling mob in front, but he could not
be heard ten feet away. Tn vain did
Mr. Bryan attempt to restore arier,
but it was many minutes befir? any
thing like quiet was obtains 1. V>uring
the excitement women fainted and
several persons were taken from the
crowd, overcome by the crush. The
police used their clubs, and oiw of
their number, mounted on a spirited
horse, forced the animal In front of
the stand, nearly creating a panic.
Then again Mr. Bryan tried to
speak, but he was interrupted by the
yellß of the students. This lasted al
together for twenty-five minutes, ;ind
when at last the noise had subsided
sufficiently for him to make himself
heard by those immediately in front
Mr. Bryan started to speak. As he
proceeded, the noise quieted, but every
few minutes he would be Interrupted
by the frog chorus. Mr. Bryan said:
I am glad that there are students here, be
cause I want to say a word to students.
Your college has helped to add fame to your
city and those who assemble here are sup
posed to come in order that they may better
equip themselves for the duties of life". I am
glad to talk to you students, because, my
friends, we have a cause which appeals to
students. If the syndicates and corpora
tions rule this country, then no young man
has a fair show, unless he is the favorite
of a corporation. (Applause and yells for
McKlnley by a portion of the students.) If
the people have a right to govern themselves
and deputize that right, then every citizen
has a fair show and every man may achieve
what he desires. We desire to leave all the
I avenues open so that the son of the humblest
| citizen may aspire to the highest position
I within the gift of the people. (Applause and
yells repeated.) I am not speaking now to
the sons who are sent to college on the pro
ceeds of ill-gotten gains. (Enthusiastic ap
plause.) I will wait until these sons have
exhausted what their fathers have left them,
and I will appeal to their children, who will
j have to commence life where their grand
fathers commenced. (Great applause.) My
friends, a Just government is best for the
great mass of the people. Equal laws and
! equal opportunity are best for ninety-nine
out of every hundred of our citizens, (yells
! again repeated) and therefore our cause" ap
| peals to every young man who wants to
I make this government so good as to deserve
the love and confidence and the support of
every citizen in this land.
We appeal not only to the students, we
appeal to the business men who have been
tyrannized over by financial institutions.
In some instances, it is more dangerous to
raise your voice against the ruling power than
It is in an absolute monarchy to criticise the
fovernment. If there is anybody who loves
that sort of condition, then I shall offend him
i by speaking of it, but I shall not offend any
I man who loves liberty and the right of free
I speech in this country. Business men have
' been told that the free coinage of silver
1 would ruin them. If It can ruin them, then
my friends, it will be bad indped; because
I the gold standard has Increased the number
of failures among business men and every
step that has been taken has been followed
(Yells from the students.)
I have been so used to talking to young
men who earn their own living that I hardly
know what language to use to address myself
to those who desire to be known, not as
creators of wealth, but the distributors of
wealth which somebody else created. (Great
applause and cheering.) If you will show
j me a young man who has been taught to
believe-fyells and cries for McKlnley.) In
j all my travels I have not found a crowd that
I needed talking to so much as this crowd does
(Cries of "That's right.") I came to thii
I city something more than a year ago, and I
learned something of the domination of your
financial classes. I have seen it elsewhere
but, my friends, the great mass of the people'
even of this city, will be better off under
; bimetallism that permits the nation to grow
. than under a gold standard which starves
everybody except the money changer and the
money owner. (Great applause.)
We sometimes out West are instructed by
your insurance companies. I carry insurance
in old-line companies and in what are known
aa the mutual assessment companies. I
carry insurance in fraternal orders, like the
United Workmen and Modern Woodmen (ap
plauEe), aa well as in the old-line companies,
and I am grateful that my assessment com
panies are satisfied to take my money and
! give me Insurance, without attempting to tell
Ime how I must vote. Your old-line companies
have seen fit to insult the Intelligence of the
people by attempting to exercise a guardian
care, while we are able to look after our
selves without their Instruction.
You have laboring men also in large num
bers in this city. I do not know whether the
advocates of the gold standard, who employ
men in the shops. instßt upon telling their
employes how to vote. I have, in other j
places, found employer* who would put In !
envelopes the pay for the day's work or !
week's work and then put on the outside of |
I the envelrjpee some instructions to the em- !
I ployes. If the manufacturer. If the employ- :
! er, if the railroad president feels as If there i
! must be something on the outside of the en
velope as well as upon the Inside, let me !
suggest something which the employer might
rat there. Let him write on the outside: I
"You will find within your wages. They are ]
j to cover your work. They are to pay for your !
j vote. We recognize that the men who have !
! cense enough to do the work we want done |
' have sense enough to vote right without our
telling them how to vote." (Applause.)
I notice that in some places they have been
organizing sound money clubs and they have I
the applicants sign a statement saying that
the free coinage of silver would hurt him in
hie business as a wage earner. I have won
dered why our great financial magnates did i
I not put in their application a statement slai-
I liar to that. Why don't the heads of these
■ syndicates who have been bleeding the govern
■ ment make, application to sound money clubs
and write in the application that the free
; coinage of silver would hurt them In their
business as heads of syndicates? No party
ever declared in this platform that it was in
favor of hard times, and yet the party that
| declares for a gold standard in substance de
■ clares for a continuation of hard times.
Here a band of the First Regiment,
I National Guard of Connecticut, which
i had been playing on the East side
: of the common, where the company
I had been on dress parade during the
! meeting, marched nearer to the stand
i and started a lively patriotic air, cora
i pletely drowning the voice of the nom
inee. The Tale boys renewed their
cheers. Then, when he could get the
attention of the crowd, Mr. Bryan pro-
It is hard enough to talk wh«re all the
conditions are favorable, and Lmust ask you
to excilse'me from tulkinf any further In th«
presence of the noises against which we havo
to combat today.
Then S. A. Crandall, of Norwich, pro
ceeded to apologize, saying::
As to the young men who have made it
Impossible for you (Mr. Bryan) to apcan to
day, I ask you (addressing Mr. Bryan) not to
believe that they represent Yale, any more
than McKlnley will represent us in Novem
ber. They have been blowing off their wind
as he is blowing off his wind. Yale has sent
out into the world men, air, like you, who
have been an honor to their university nnd
to their country, in congress, in business ftnd
in every walk of life. (Great applause.)
The meeting then ended, Mr. Bryan
coughed violently as he was driven to
the New Haven house, and was ap
parently exhausted after his effort.
In speaking of his reception at New
Haven, Mr. Bryan said he did not at
tribute it to the sober minded citizens
of New Haven, but to the younger
j members of Yale college. He said he
thought the boys were out on a lark
and did not represent the sentiment
of the citizens or of the students of the

j about the station expecting to see Mr.

j there several thousand people sur
i rounded the car and cheered time and

stopped but for a moment, but in that
time Mr. Bryan had a chance to say a
few words. At South Norwalk the
crowd was about the same in size and
enthusiasm as at Stamford. They
called for a speech from Mr. Bryan, but
he told them that he was trying to save
his voice and he thought that they
would agree with him that it needed
The most enthusiastic reception of
the day was that accorded by the cit
izens of Bridgeport. When the train
j rolled into the station, a number of
carriages were- in waiting. In these,
Mr. Bryan and his party were taken
to Washington park, in the heart of
the city, where Mr. Bryan spoke to a
crowd of several thousand. The meet
ing was presided over by Judge D. H
I^oekwood, of Bridgeport. After the
speech Mr. Bryan was driven to the
"vV ir.dsor hotel, where he partook of a
light luncheon. At 12:30 the party left
for New Haven.
There was a big crowd at the depot
when the train bearing the Bryan par
ty pulled out of New Haven at 5
o'clock. On board were members of a
\ reception committee from Merlden,
: where a big meeting had been arrang
ed, but owing to a misunderstanding,
; it had to be cancelled at the last mo
i lr.ent. At Wallingford, the next stop,
I there was a fair sized crowd waiting
j to hear the nominee, who made a brier
, speech. There was a large crowd at
Meriden when the train pulled into the
j station. It was expected Mr. Bryan
j would stop there forty minutes and
when at the end of three minutes the
! train moved away, there was a dis
| appointed assemblage left behind.
There was another stop at Berlin for

j candidate shake hands with those
Hartford was reached twenty
minutea ahead of time and the com -
mittee, in order not to disappoint the
people of this home of Insurance com
panies, had the ear switched off on
another track and the reception com

' until the time they were expected. A
large crowd turned out to see him as

I him enthusiastically. He was taken

BRYAN AT HARTFORD.
\ Two Talks Made by the Free Sil\er
HARTFORD, Conn., Sept. 24.— The
i day was brought to a fitting close with
; two big meetings in this city tonight,
i both of which wer? addressed by Mr.
: Bryan. Almost immediately after din
ner the nominee was driven to Capital
park, situated on a hill in the center
iof the city. On the summit stands j
! the magnificent state capitol building '
and in front of this Mr. Bryan spoke
from a stand. The park, which covers ,
( an area of seven blocks, was densely j
! packed with people and innumerable j
red lights gave the soene a brilliant \
: aspect. The meeting was under the :
; auspices of a committee of prominenc !
| Hartford Democrats headed by Ed- !
ward M. Graves, the local leader, and !
\J. (t. Kennedy. The former Introduced
And the Klementa to Which Their
Effect* Are Due.
As compared with the nourishment j
! they give, fruits and nuts have the ■
least proportion of earth salts. Animal
flesh comes next, then vegetables, and
fourth in rank we have cereals and
pulses, which are shown to have the \
largest amount of the earthy matters, i
From the analysis we see that" fruits, j
as distinct from vegetables, have the j
least amount of earth salts. Most of
them contain a large quantity of water,
hut that water is of the purest kind —
a distilled water of nature — and has in
solution vegetable albumen. We also
notice that they are to a great extent
free from the oxidized albumens —
glutinous and fibrinous substances;
and many of them contain acids — citric,
tartaric, malic, &c. — which, when taken j
Into the system, act directly upon the 1
blood by Increasing its solubility, by j
thinning it:> the process of circulation [
is more easily carried on and the blood ,
flows more easily in the capillaries — '
which become lessened in caliber as age '
advances — than it would be of a thicker \
nature. These acids lower the tern- j
perature of the body and thus prevent
the wasting process of oxidation, or
combustion in the system. Exhilarat
ing and stimulating effects produced
by tea, coffee, and chocolate are caused
by theme in tea, caffeine In cof£e*>, and .
bromine in cocoa or chocolate — the lat
ter containing a smaller percentage of
the stimulant than the others. All have
a similar alkaloid base.
Milk has become extremely popular with all
classes of physicians of late years. ■ Formerly
a fever patient was forbidden to taste milk,
(n modern practice milk is about the only
food allowed. An exclusive diet of milk is
found very efficacious in diabetes. At the
German spas, Carlsbad, Wiesbaden, etc., a
very little bread is allowed, and the diet is
mostly made up of milk, eggs, grapes and
lean beef. A non-starch diet Is the rule,
bread, starchy vegetables and cereals being
almost excluded. Rice is easily digested and
an excellent food, except that it abounds In
earth salts. Fruits are not only digested in
the first stomach, but they have a large part
of their nourishment already in a condition
to be absorbed and assimilated as soon as
eaten. The food elements in bread and ce
reals have to undergo a process of diges
tion In the stomach, and then be passed on
to the Intestines for a still further chemical
change before they are of use to the human
system. This is the great advantage of a
diet of lean meats and fruits.
FIGHT WITH A FISH.
A Pennsylvania Man* Exciting Time
With a Huge Pike.
William Riblett, of Pulaski, who works at
the Gaiiey planing mill in this city, had a
lively tussle with an immense fish near Nan
cy's Island on Thursday afternoon. He was
fishing In a boat with a rod and line ii»'l
was baited with a chub, which was about
six inches long. As he was rowing along
he felt a bard tug at his 11m and the next
minute was In the -..list r.f a hard fight
with the resident f the C»»ep. The fiih
pulled the boat In every direction and M l .
Riblett was afraid Ms line would broa!:.
After about fifteen minutes' work the lish
went into a sunken tree, and here the line
got wrapped around a limb, rmd it looked f<-r
