"Realizing- that there are some points
In my anatomy that may be of Interest
to our profession, I will map them out
in order to facilitate the work of the
operator who may dieseot my remains."
This is a clause from the last will
and testament of Dr. I. N. Foote, of
Argentine, Kan. The doctor is still
very much alive, but he has published
his will in order that the medical pro
fession generally may know that his
body exhibits some remarkable and sci
entifically Inexplicable phenomena, and
that he is willing, and, in fact, wills,
that his remains after death shall be
investigated by competent medical ex
perts. He therfore formally bequeaths
his body to any medical institution of
respectable importance that will agree
to make such an investigation.
The phenomena that Dr. Foote con
siders so remarkable are fully describ
ed in this peculiar document.
After describing some peculiarities
of minor importance, he tells some re
markable stories about his stomach.
"The surgeon who makes the exam
ination," he writes in his will, "maj
or may not find anything abnormal,
for of late years my stomach has
caused me little or no trouble, but some
years ago I suffered muoh with indi
gestion, acidity and regurgitatlon.
"A frequent metallic tinkling, as if
an iron or steel rod was lightly hit in
that region, was heard, which was very
annoying, and after this I was pros
trated by solar heat, and was unable
to labor or retain food or drink to any
extent for thirteen weeks."
This metallic tinkling in his stomach
is something that the doctor fails to
understand after much research There
is no precedent or parallel for it, but
the sound was persistent for so long a
period and was so distinctly audible,
that he thinks he owes it to science to
give his body up for examination after
Again, he suffers from a consciousness of
having a third arm. and this bo acute!* as
to occr-sion him real mental distress.
Then he feels "like a steam engine " as he
expresses it. and, again, like a musical in
strument. Of these latter feelings he goes
into this explanation in his remarkable will:
"For a period of eight years a noise re
wmbllng the Interrupted escape of steam
from a ftcomotive was heard with every pul
sation of my heart, which led me to ex
pect trombogls oerebrl and greatly annoyed
me, but during this time I was frequently en
tertained after retiring by hearing two soft
musical notes of about one seconds' duration
each, commenoing on O of the middle scale
and ending ou D below.
"These sounds were peculiarly melodious.
Tjoore so, In fact, than any produoed on or
fan, piano or harp, and would often be re
peated once a minute or so for an hour or
more. Thlr origin was, of course, attributed
to some abnormal cerebral condition but
what that condition was I am unable to
even conjecture, and leave it hoping an
autopsy may shed some light that may benefit
the profession, and thereby humanity at
"All the above conditions are now much
Improved, and it is, perhaps, my duty to
state that stimulants have contributed
more to effect this than all other prescrip
tion* that I have tried, though socially and
financially I am aware of their evil effect.
But what can I do when suffering other than
to resort to the only remedy known? . I
realise that the tendency is to overstep the
bounds of moderation, and strive to guard
.against that evil the best I oan."
Thete are the principal features of what is
probably the most remarkable and last will
and testament ever made in this country.
Dr. Foote exacts very little In return for the
bequest of his remarkable body to science.
He makes the condition that his remains, or
such parts of them as the examining scien
tists do not need, be cremated, as he has de
cided objections to the custom of burial.
He further conditions that the medical so

that his wife will scarcely survive him, as

He also adds to his will a long dissertation
upon the objections to burial and the ad
vantages of cremation. He wants a portion
of his dust given to his married daughter
and he bequeaths his extensive library and
apparatus of all descriptions to the medical
society that undertakes the trust made in

SHERBURNE, Minn., Oct. 10.— "That
is the man who came to my house and
asked to borrow a needle and thread
Wednesday forenoon." Thus positive
ly and without hesitation did Mrs. Etta
Browning testify tonight.
Weirdest of all the scenes thus far in
the Sherburne bank tragedy was this
inquest. When the remains of the dead
robber reached Sherburne it ap
proached nightfall, and when the cas
ket had been opened in Reynolds hall
over the undertaking establishment
only one oil lamp cast its flickering
rays over the party assembled for the
inquisition. In the casket lay the form
of a young man, smooth shaven, In
the twenties, no doubt. A neat choker
and collar concealed his throat. The
bicycle suit drenched with the blood
of the Elmore tragedy reposed in a
packing case near at hand. As the
witnesses were summoned, the golf cap
was put upon his head, the jacket was
thrown over his torso, and in this
guise one by one the witnesses passed
judgment. Wm. Koch was sure as to
the clothes. Kahler, the teamster, was
most positive, and Esther Larson, who
was in Follett's store next door to the
bank was positive
HE WAS THE MAN
who was on the south side of the pair
who crossed the street just previous to
the robbery. But Mr*. Browning was
absolutely sure. Even in the dim light
of the jury chamber, glistening as the
rays did In the red blotch that had
followed the coming of death, this wo
man stood without apparent nervous
ness or doubt and identified one of the
murderers of Sherburne. In her words
lay the justification of Deputy Sheriff
Ward, to whose unerring aim was to
be credited the death of one of the
fugitives. Not one of the score of audi
tors in that dismal chamber doubted
the accuracy of the woman's words.
Her manner betokened her sincerity,
her serious appreciation of the situa
tion was manifest in her very tones.
Subdued, yet without a trace of reluc
tance as they were, it was aparent to
all that the' woman spoke the truth.
Not one doubted that there lay one of
the pair who had sent George Thor
burn and Olaf Oestern to eternity un
warned. It was such an occasion as |
commanded the deepest reverence, but j
the solemnity was heightened when j
Mrs. Jane Masters came to the stand.
Wan she looked in that flickering light,
and little wonder was it that her hus
band stood close behind that tottering
"Please view the remains carefully,"
suggested the coroner, and with the !
heorism of a Stoic the woman looked !
for a few moments at the ghastly face
of the dead man. It required all her
will, so deep was her appreciation of
the barrier between life and death. In
a moment she tottered, and but for j
supporting arms would have fallen
heavily in her chair. Her composure
was soon recovered, however, and in a
minute she told how the men had
crossed Main street and entered the
bank, how the curtain had been pulled
down, and, in fact, every incident of
that most tragic event of Wednesday.
Esther Larson thought from the
clothes that it was the man. Mrs.
Masters, too, identified him as one of
the two who crossed the street, but
Mrs. Browning's identification was as
POSITIVE AND COMPLETE
as could be desired. The brutal murder
of Thorburn and Oestern had been par
tially avenged, and even in the gaping
faces of the crowd that surrounded the
door to the inquest chamber could be
read the satisfaction that was incident
al to the accomplishment of such a re
venge. The inquisition waa short. The
jury had been impanelled in Farlbault
county, and its members wanted to
catch the No. 4 train for home. They
Donald Thorburn, brother of the mur
dered banker, arrived today from his
home in Ontario, opposite Buffalo, and
will leave with the body of his brother
Monday. There has been some diffi
culty in securing the necessary papers
for the transfer of the body, but the
; arrangements are now about complete.
August Larson, employed at the State
Bank of Sherburne returned this morn
ing from Emmetsburg, 10., he being
one of the last of the south-going posse
to return. Mr. Larson states that the
posse with which he went was able to
keep excellent track of the robbers un
til nightfall Wednesday, but thereafter
they were diverted from the straight
track of pursuit by the false reports
that were sent from Estherville and
other lowa points. Some amusement
and some consternation, too, was cre
ated here this morning by a query from
the marshall at Casey, 10., asking for a
description of H. C. Alcox. The latter is
a local implement dealer who has been
among the most Indomitable pursuers
of the fleeing robbers, and it appears
that he has been arrested on suspicion
that he is one of the guilty men. In
general characteristics perhaps he
agrees with the description of one of
the men, but those who saw the rob
bers cannot reconcile themselves to the
When It was ascertained where
Casey was, however, he being in Guth
rle county, lowa, west of Dcs Moines,
and fully 140 miles from Sherburne, it
became apparent that Alcox was far
in advance of all the rest of the posse,
and that the misunderstanding which
led to his arrest might blast the pros
pects of the capture of the second rob
ber. Some indignation is being mani
fested locally as the facts develop that
the dissemination of th.c news of
Wednesday's tragedy should have
failed at so signal a point. The first
message Bent from Sherburne went to
Fairmont, the second to Jackson.
Other points in the surorunding coun
try wert notified ene by one, but it

now apepars tha£ the town people of
Jackson, the town being perhaps a
mile from the telegraph office, knew
nothing at all of 'the Jobbery until the
arrival of citizens from Lakefleld, the
next station beyond. In this way over
an hour had been lost, and, as a matter
of fact, the original .course taken by
the robbers was towards Jackson. Had
the officers and citizens of that city
been promptly notified the citizens of
Sherburne believe the robbers would
have been captured beyond a doubt
Wednesday, and . the .chase which has
already lasted three days and cost an
extra life, that of Marshall Gallien, of
Bancroft, would have been obviated.
As it is now, It is possible that the
second of the thieve* may have es
caped into Missouri, as the point where
Alcox was arrested was within about
sixty miles of the Missouri line, and
the thief was presumably ahead of
A telegram to Mayor Everett from
Lake Mills, 10., states that a man an
swering the description of the second
robber has been arrested there. A local
officer left at once to investigate. Milo
Coffey, the only Sherburne man who
was present at the killing of the- rob
ber near EJmore, returned home to
night. Mr. Coffey's description of the
incident is thrilling. He says that
when the man supposed to be Sair was
traced to his hiding place, there were
five in the party, Marshall Gallien, of
Bancroft; Sheriff Toohey, of Kossuth
county and a liveryman from Bancroft
named Tutter; Deputy Sheriff Ward,
of Martin county, and Coffey. Ward
went to the door, and a woman an
swered. While she was talking to
Ward, the door opened a little, and
Ward dodged the
SHOTS FROM THE PISTOL
that he perceived in the open door.
The man with the gun then fired at the
party several times. There were two
riga Coffey was in the rig with
Toohey and Tutter. Ward was on foot,
and Gallien was in the second rig alone
when the firing commenced. Coffey
threw a gun to Ward and proceeded to
get out of the range of the bullets fired
from the door. The horses behind fol
lowed, and it was then found that Gal
lien had been shot In the side. Coffey
and Tutter helped the injured man out
of the buggy, but it : was too late, for
Gallien was already dead. The robber
then took his wheel from a shed near
the house and fled, but after a chase
of from three to four miles one of his
tires gave out. There it was that the
fellow left the wheel and went to the
fields on foot. Ward, who was sharp
shooter in the militia at one time, lev
eled his gun upon the fugitive, the
charge striking him in the back. The
fellow went perhaps five »tepa, then
placed his revolver to his head and
fired. When the body and clothes were
examined, there were found $1,020, or
practically the same, amount that was
taken from the robbed bank. Tele
grams received tonight ask that wit
nesses b« sent to Lake Mills, 10., to
identify the man under arrest there.
The wheel, with Its flat tire, was ex
hibited at the Inquest today and was
identified in a very general way.

LAKE MILLS, 10., Oct. 10— About
2:30 p. m. a man was discovered ap
proaching our village from the south
west pushing a bicycle. Nothing was
thought of it until upon his near ap
proach his description struck everyone
very forcibly at once, owing: to the fact
that he had on a gray bicycle suit,
black stockings and black shirt,
and wore a pair of blue overalls.
His height was five feet eight and one
half Inches, weight 156 pounds, light
complexion and smooth face. Upon en
tering the outskirts of the village he
inquired from some gentlemen in which
direction the main part of the town
was located. Upon receiving such in
formation he started southward, as if
entering the village. He went towards
the business part of the village for
only two blocks, when he immediately
i turned eastward for two blocks, then
turned direct north. In going eastward
he was compelled to pass the home of
Gua Ruby, the city marshal, who In
stantly suspected that he was the man
wanted, and immediately went around
the block in the opposite direction than
that taken by the murderer, with the
intention of meeting the robber at the
opposite corner. In this he succeeded,
owing to the worn-out condition of the
j murderer. Upon arriving at the cor
ner of the block he saw his man ap
proaching, riding his wheel at an easy
pace. The marshall continued walking
towards the murderer until, when com
ing alongside, he
GRASPED HIM BY THE SHOULDER
with one hand, and with the other at
the same instant presented a revolver
and told him to throw up his hands.
Seeing that he was caught dead to
rights he surrendered. He was im
mediately taken to police headquarters
where he was searched. Three mur
deroue looking revolvers, consisting of
one 38-caliber, one 32-caliber and one
22, the latter being an old-fashioned
four-barrelled pepper box, were found
upop his person. All of the revolvers
were loaded to the brim, and an extra
supply of cartridges was found. In
answering questions propounded to
him, he made some very contradictory
statements, and will not give any ac
curate account of his whereabouts
since the murder. We have had rain
!in this section since 3 o'clock this
morning, causing the roads to be in an
impassable condition for wheelmen.

It I» Foolish to \>jj!eet Any Form
of Piles. Cure Them at the Be
Piles are simple in th« beginning and
ea«ily cured. They can be cured even
in the worst stages, without pain or
loss of blood, quickly, surely and com
pletely. There is only one remedy that
will do it— Pyramid Pile Cure.
It allays the inflammation immediate
ly, heals the irritated surface and with
continued treatment reduces the swell
ing and puts the membranes into good,
sound healthy condition. The cure is
thorough and permanent.
Here are some voluntary and unsoli
cited testimonials we have lately re
Mrs. M. C. Hinkly, 601 Mississippi
St., Indianapolis, Ind., says: Have been
a sufferer from the pain and annoy
ance of Piles for fifteen years, the Pyra
mid Pile Cure and Pyramid Pills gave
me immediate relief and in a short
time a complete cure.
Major Dean of Columbus, Ohio, says:
I wish to add to the number of certi
ficates as to the benefits derived from
the Pyramid Pile Cure. I suffered from
piles for forty years and from itching
piles for twenty years and two boxes
of the Pyramid Pile Cure have efflectu
ally oured me.
Most druggists sell Pyramid Pile Cure
or will get it for you if you ask them to.
It is one dollar per package and is put

SOCIETY MEN AS "PUGS."
Fought to a I inluli at the Chicago
CHICAGO, Oct. 10.— In the boxing
room of the main gymnasium of the
Chicago Athletic club this afternoon
Dr. Milton B. Pine, a North side den
tist, and Frederick Swift, a broker,
both members of the club, fought to a
finish according to Marquis of Queens
berry rules. Pine won in the second
round, knocking Swift out with a
right hander on the Jaw. There has
been considerable rivalry between the
men for some time on the question of
their prowess with the gloves, and four
weeks ago a match was made between
them for $1,000 a side and the money
posted. The fight was pulled off before
six men on each side. George Silver,
the well known sporting man, acted as
referee. Dr. Pine's weight at the ring
side was given as 160 pounds, -while
Swift weighed 185. Joseph B. Choyns
ki, the pugilist, was In attendance and
Pine wore the tights which Choynski
has worn in the majority of his battles.
Swift was unconscious for nearly
thirty minutes, and it took much hard
work to bring him to again. Pine sus
tained no injury whatever. What ac
tion will be taken by the officers of the
club Is not known, but there will cer
tainly be much trouble over the affair.
Several men prominent in the club
were among the twelve present, and
the expulsion, if it is decided upon, will
create a censation.

banks report no loss of cash, In fact
i there was an actual gain of $11,100, the
increase in specie counteracting the

anything else to demand for cash from
the West and South, together with the
rapid fall In sterling exchange, which
is an Incident closely connected with
this demand, pressage continuance of
gold imports from Europe. The trade
balances are largely in our favor and
must continue so for* some time to

conditions that the funds, drawn from
New York, should be replaced by re
mittances from abroad and conserva

this second movement exceeded expec-.

gold are in excess of $6,000,000 and
unless unforseen circumstances prevent
the total will probably be doubled'
soon. Of course an advance In foreign
money centers might check a continu
ance of these figures.

vest, producing scanty growth.shriveled
grains and rust.
