Elmer Liston, Confessed Mur

IS FOUND UNCONSCIOUS
Awaiting Sentence for Destroying the
Life of Miss 31 ny Kiiiiison of
Whom He Was Enamored.
Swallowing a big draught of mor
phine, Elmer Liston, self confessed
murderer of May Ringson, attempted
to cheat the law by suicide in his cill
at the county jail at Clinton, Iowa,
When discovered, the murderer was
unconscious in his cHi. Physicians,
including County Physician Dr. Kurt
Jaenicke, were immediately summoned
and took measures at once to preserve
All day long Sheriff T. J. Burke and
Deputy Sheriff William Dougherty, to
gether with other assistants at the
jail, worked hard in the hope of sav
ing Liston's life so that he may ans
wer to the law for the crime, to which
he recently pleaded guilty in the Clin
ton county di:-:'ikt court. In order to
keep him in a semi-conscious condition
it is nenessary to walk him bai k and
forth constantly. Should this practice
be stopped for a moment, the man im
mediately drops back to unconscious
ness, which would scon terminate in
How he secured the poison is a puz
zle to the authorities at the jail. It is
believed, however, that it was smug
gled to the jail by visitors. Sheriff
Burke has issued order.-, that in the
future no visitors will be allowed to
Liston is in jail awaiting the time
nvhen Jr.di; D. V. Jackson in the. Clin
ton touniy district court will hear the
evidence against him to determine his
punishmi nt, Linton having pleaded
guilty to the indictment charging him
with murder in the first degree.
The story of the terrible murder of
the girl, of whom he was enamored,
in an upstairs room in her own home
last spring, the wounding of Officer
William Lorenz of the police depart
ment by a shot from Liston's revolver,
and the murderer's subsequent sur
render after holding off the polite and
sheriff's forces for hours, is still fresh
in the public memory.
It was reported that soon after Ids
ton's incarceration in the county jail,
he made an attempt at suicide. Ac
cording to this report, he put his head
in a pan of water and attempted to
drown himself, but wns rescued before
he could effect his purpose.
OPENS HER ART STUDIO
31iss Irma Kohn Displays Interesting
Kxhibit of Sketches and Paiiitmg.
Miss Irma Kohn, the talented daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Kohn, has
reopened her studio at 171$ Second
avenue with an interesting exhibit of
paintings and sketches. The exhibit is.
open to callers from 2 to 5 o'clock in
the afternoon all this week and next
week. Miss Kohn has just returned
from her summer's work in the outdoor
school of the Art Students' league of
New York at Woodstock, N. Y.. where
she pursued her studies under the well
known instructors, James Carlson and
Birge Harrison. Her work has gained
much in the recent study, for there is
a greater depth and feeling and a
wider knowledge in her latest paint
ings and sketches.
The exhibit includes nine canvasses,
each of especial merit. The gem of the
collection is a waterscape that won
much favorable comment among pro
fessional artists of the east. It is a
shadowy scene of a view across the
Mississippi just before dark, and the
last, faint glimmer of day is pictured
on the waters with a skillful brush.
This picture, which was painted fiom
memory while the artist was in Wood
stock, was hung in the Concur exhibit
and was given the center space, a most
conspicuous place, in competition with
professional artists. This is a most
unusual honor for so young an artist as
Miss Kohn. A particularly attractive
canvas is that of an autumn scene with
a giant tree in the foreground, whil-3
the eye follows a splendid distance to
a low mountain range. This is a view
in the .country of the Catskills.
"Young Birches in the Early Morn
ing" forms the theme of another no
ticeable bit of work, the slim young
trees seeming to fairly shiver in the
silvery haze of the early morning.
"Birches in the Moonlight" is the sub
ject of a woodland sketch, where the
trees stand outlined in the soft blue of
the moon's rays. The coloring is like
a Japanese print in a picture of a
young pink maple on a damp, misty
day, where the gray-blues shade softly
into dawn pinks. A canvas that will
cause delight to the casual observer Is
that of a little red-roofed house behind
a hill with a narrow winding path lead
ing to it. There are 25 of -.he smaller
sketches in the collection.
WOULD TAKE LIFE
No Mistake for Fourteenth
District to Elect Him to
OF THE PROGRESSIVE TYPE
Itocord Shows He Will Not Be Found
on the Side of the Trusts in
Bowling Green, Mo., Oct. 18.
Editor Argus: 1 desire to congratu
late the people of your congressional
district upon the nomination of my
friend, Tavenner, for congress. I
have just gotten home from a swing
around the circle where I have found
democrats and progressive republi
cans working harmoniously for the
election of good men to congress
men who will not be found on the
side of the trusts when important
measures are up in congress. I find
on my desk a copy of your paper
containing an account of Tavenner's
I am very sure the Fourteenth
Illinois could not have done better.
This young man possesses in a high
degree the necessary qualifications
for membership in congress. I have
known him but two or three years,
but in that time he has gained and
hfld the confidence, admiration and
esteem cf many members of the
house and senate. Senator LaFol
lette and Representatives Murdock
and Kustermann, all insurgent repub
licans, are among his most loyal
friends. Senator LaFollette has pub
lished Mr. Ta vernier's articles in
"iaFollette's Weekly" on several oc
ri.sions. Can Help District.
Citizens interested in the welfare
of the Fourteenth Illinois district
would do well to see to it that Tav
enner is elected to congress. Men
who are in touch with political con
ditions freely admit that the coming
congress will be democratic. Since
that seems to be as certain as any
thing can be in advance of its hap
pening, it behooves your district to
send a man there who will be in
touch with the majority in that
house. If I am speaker of the 6 2d
congress you may depend upon it
that Tavenner would be able to make
himself valuable to the Fourteenth
Illinois congressional district. I
know of few men who have studied
public questions as deeply as he. He
is young, it is true, but that has
ceased to be a reproach, and if he
!s elected to congress this year, my
guess is that he will serve you so
v. ( i that he will grow old in your
service. Last year Tavenner made
a tour of Europe for the purpose of
learning the truth about the opera
tions of the tariff in European coun
tries and his articles on the subject
were pi'nted by order of the house
of leprrsentatives in the congression
al record and given the privilege of
tree transportation through the
mails. Yours sincerely,
