Brings $310,000, Having Originally Cost
BELLINGHAM, Wash., Nov. 12.—At

pany, representing an original invest
ment of at least $1,000,000, brought
£310,000, bid by W. A. Peters, an at

no bidders at the upset ->r minimum

courts for a modification of the order
so that they may dispose of the prop
erty separately or in a manner that
will bring the best returns. No diffi
culty is anticipated in disposing of the
holdings at the sale.
The Pacific Packing and Navigation
company, allied with the Pacific-Ameri
can Fisheries company, was formed as
a New Jersey corporation in 1901, with
a capital of $25,000,000. It became
hope^ssly involved and more than a
year ago went into the hands of re
ceivert,. Its statement at the time the
receivers took charge showed indebted
ness of $4,828,450 and an issuance of
$13,000,000 stock, over half of which
was preferred. J*he Pacific-American
Fisheries company, sold today, was or
ganized in ISB9, with a capital stock of

Mystery Attends the Death of a Man
Who^e Body Is Found in a Box Car
Special to The Globe
DEVILS LAKE, N. D.. Nov. 12.—
Mystery surrounds the death of an un
known man found at Church's Ferry,
this county, in a Great Northern box
car this morning. Beside the body lay
empty a bottle which had contained
carbolic acid and undoubtedly it is a
case of suicide; but at the Inquest at
Church's Ferry this afternoon by Cor
oner Nimmo the jury brought In a ver
dict that death resulted from carbolic
acid poisoning, either by the hand of
the dead man or unknown persons.
The car In which the body was found
came from Minneapolis or Duluth and
was sidetracked here yesterday, later
being taken to Church's Ferry, where
or. opening it the body was found.
There was nothing on the dead man
to Identify him. He was about 5 feet
9 inches tall, weighed 170 pounds, aged
about twenty-five, hair light red and
smooth face. He was probably a Swede
and from his appearance had been a
thresher. Nothing was found in the
pockets, so there is some likelihood
that it was a murder for the purpose
of robbing the victim. The coroner
brought the body here tonight. Death
occurred probably a week ago.

Just the dirtiest and ugliest looking
tramp that I ever saw came to our door
two days ago and asked for .something to
eat. We gave him a big sandwich and you
can just think of our surprise when he
whistled and a pretty little skye terrier
dog answered his call. Instead of eating
the meat himself the tramp took it out of
the sandwich piece by piece and fed it to
the dog. It looked so kind of the tramp
that mamma gave him another sandwich
and a oup of coffee and also a large piece
of moat for the dog.

This summer, after the birds had hatch

buds all covered with small feathers and
down in our back yard.
They could not fly a bit. and were Just
walking around. We tried to catch them,
and the old mother bird sat on the fence
and chirped awßy to the little ones at a
great rate. We caught them at last and
put them in a cage and kept them until
they wore able to fly. so that the cats
could not get them. Then we let them
loose and they flew away and we never
saw them again.

> Our New Dc<a
Papa brought home a new puppy- last
Wednesday, saying that he had bought
him from a friend of his. The puppy is
the ugliest little dog in the city, I think,
but I lika him already. He la a bulldog,
and has a flat nose and great big jaws,
and short, stubby legs. He is very smart
and Is learning to speak for anything that
he wants and also to shako hands. He
growls when anybody comes to the door.
and papa says that he will make a great
pet and watch dog, even If he Is ugly.
