The Morrell Institute.
Every week brings more patients to
the Morrell Institute for the cure of the
tobacco, opium and liquor habits. Al
ready quite a number are under treat
ment and the location of the institute
here has proven a boon to many who
were addicted to one or more of these
habits and who could neither spare the
time or expense to go away for treat
ment. The offices of the company are
pleasantly located and Drs. Morrell and
Snyder who are in charge are both cour
teous and agreeable gentlemen whose ex
perience in this line has amply qualified
them for their work. The cures have
been given a thorough test in many diff
erent cities and has met with gratifying
success in everv instance. The doctors in
charge here are constantly receiving vol
untary testimonials from patients in oth
er cities who have been cured of these
habits and who are desirous of making
known its benefits. They are not here
for a day or week but are established
permanently and can be seen at the offh
ces of the institute in the Buford block
at any time.

DRIVEN TO HIS DEATH
Th Fate of sTrssik Cronli Whose
B. tli was Found at Hillsdale Thurs
day The Coroner's Inquest.
The body of FraLk Ciouk, the 19-year
old young man of Erie, who was drowned
on June 13th, was found in Rock river
near the mouth of the Marias de Osier by
Harry Shay on Thursday evening. The
finding of the body brings again to pub
lic notice the story of his drowning.
Young Cronk was charged by a young
girl of the neighborhood with having
criminally assaulted her, and a warrant
was accordingly sworn out for his arrest,
and placed in the hands of Constable
Henry Sibley of Erie. Word reached the
young m-.n of the offense with which he
was charged and he said he was innocent
and declared he would not permit himself
to be arrested on such a charge. Consta
ble Sibley hearing of his intention got a
posse of six or seven menj to assist in the
capture, and proceeded to the
young man's home about a mile
and a half below Erie where he was
found at work plowing corn. The posse
attempted to surround him when he left
his team in the field and made a break
for liberty, running directly to the river
into which he plunged, being a good
swimmer, and attempted to swim to the
other side. The constable had previous
ly arranged with the ferryman there to
be on the lookout for the escape, and
when young Cronk plunged in the ferry
man started after bim in a boat. It was
an exciting race but the pursuer had de
cidedly the best of it and gained rapidly
on the swimmer. This the latter saw but
he kept up his best speed until the man
in the boat was almost upon him, when
to escape capture he suddenly dova out
of sight but never returned to the sur
face. His hat was found but his body
was carried down the river by the swift
current and was found as stated above

Three witnesses were examined, Robert
McGregor, a brother-in-law of the de
ceased, who testified as to the circum
stances leading up to the drowning; liar
rv Shav. who testified to having found
the body, and Lewis Finnan of Prophets
town who corroborated the statements of
the first witness. The jury returned a
verdict that Frank Cronk came to his
death bv drowning in Rock river while
trying to evade arrest by Constable liens
ry Sibley on June 13.
It is sa'd that further trouble may grow
out of the affair.
The body was turned over to Robert
McGregor for burial.
