William Wilmerton Trying to Re
cover Get-Rich Quick
DROPS $40,000 IN GRAIN
Aged Farmer is Duped by Brokerage
Company of St.
-Trial of the suit of William Wilmer
ton, the former Mercer county fanner,
now a resident of this city, against the
Merchants' Brokerage company, to re
cover J40.000 lost in grain speculation
has been commenced in the United
States circuit court at St. Louis.
According to Wilmerton's story, he
worked on his farm for 62 years, and
all his wealth represented his own
hard labor. In December. 1902, after
he had retired and settled down to
spend the rest of his days in ease, he
was attracted by the advertisements
of the "get-rich-quick" concern.
He was encouraged with predictions
of great gains and he sent them other
sums, a few days apart, gradually in
creasing the amounts. At one time he
sent $10,000. The old man was led on
in the belief that he would soon be
made a millionaire.

almost crazed by the sudden blow to
his hopes, consulted attorneys. July 31.
1903, suit was begun and the broker
age company's deposit of $3,C1G in the
Germania bank in St. Iouis, was at
tached. A rufh of the firm's patrons
resulted and an exposure followed.
