,THE 'ARGUS. MONDAY, AUGUST 20, 1906.
A Story and a Half
Once upon a time there was a man who wanted a home.
80 one day his wife dressed up the baby, and, together with
the dog, they started out to find a house.
He knew that Bill Bjones, who lived out near the Milan
road, wanted to sell; and his wife had heard of a perfectly
levcly place for sale up near Augustana college. So they
were sure that they cojld find what they wanted without
After spending a dollar in street car fare, walking 17
miles, and wilting about 69 cents worth of laundry, they gave
it up completely disgusted, and unable to find a housa
which would "do at all."
Right there we got hold of them.
They told us their troubles how large a house they
wanted and where they wished to live. We then brought out
a list of about a hundred placed which they had no idea could
be bought at all. After explaining that it didn't cost them a
cent unless they found what they wanted, we asked them to
drive out and look some of the properties over.
They went. And it didn't take them long to find the home
they had been dreaming about. Inside of 10 days they moved
into It perfectly satisfied, and we understand have lived
happily ever since.
We can do as much for you. We have the goods to show.

NOT GUILTY OF
THEFT FROM DEAD
John Moore, Inmate of County Infirm
ary, Cleared by Finding of Arti
cles, and Case is Dismissed.
John Moore, an' inmate of the county
nflrmary, who for two months or more
had been a fugitive, charged with the
theft of money and valuables from the
body of another inmate whom he had
nursed during his last illness, was
brought before Magistrate Elliott late
Saturday, and after an examination the
charges against him were dismissed,
and he was returned to the infirmary.
The charues. it seems, were absolute
ly unfounded. A ring, a valuable gold
watch and chain, a pair of cuff but
tons and $5 in money were Included in
the articles Moore was charged with
taking. It seems that he had merely
taken care of the ring and cuff but
tons, placing them in a closet. The
money was his own, and the watch
was found in a secret drawer of the
dead man's trunk. Moore ran away
from the infirmary when he was ac
cused of the theft, and it was after
several searches had been made later
that the secret compartment of the
runk was discovered.
Moore had enjoyed the complete con
fidence of the authorities, and it was
thought strange that he had made him
self, liable to so grave a. charge. The
later developments completely cleared
him of any charges.

J. C. DeFouilloux Charged With
Threatening to Kill Father
DISTURBANCE IN CHURCH
Carried Piece of Broom Handle Uncftr
Coat Enmity Said to Be Due to
Priest's Refusal of Alms.
For the supposed purpose of carry
ing out his threats to take the life of
Father A. Geyer, pastor of St. Mary's
church, J. C. DeFouilloux entered the
church at 9 o'clock mass yesterday
morning, armed with a piece of a
broom handle, about two feet long. He
had made inquiries whether Father
Geyer was still in charge of the parish,
and according to the story told by
neighbors, had threatened several
times to kill the priest because about
a year ago a request of his for 5 cents
had been refused by Father Geyer.
When he entered the church DeFouil
loux had the club concealed in his coat.
and those near him were attracted by
his suspicious actions and the fact that
he was concealing some weapon.

Knowing of his ill feeling toward the
priest, members of the congregation
forcibly removed DeFouilloux, and took
the club from him. It was supposed at.
first that he carried either a knife or
a revolver. His actions during the
mess attracted the attention of Father
Geyer, who says that he conducted him

deadly weapon preferred against him
by Father Geyer. He was bound over
to the grand jury under $300 bond.
The man was for a time an inmate of
the county infirmary, claiming that he
did not receive the proper medical
treatment. He was not intoxicated
yesterday, but there are some doubts
as to his sanity. He talked rationally
at the hearing before Magistrate Elli

his possession, and that he had made
