Hiler H. Horton of St. Paul, a mem

hold on him for years.
The whereabouts of Henry Boriel of
Ronneby, Benton county, who left

The mother is in a dying condition.

pounds, has brown hair and dark
eyes and is 17 years of age.
While playing about the barn with
several companions, the six-year-old
daughter of J. Bradley, living near
Erskme, suddenly fell on the upturned
prongs of a pitchfork. The tines of
the implement entered her right side
and inflicted such serious injuries that
there are grave fears for her recovery.
Petitions are being circulated to
submit to the voters of Marshall
county at the state election next No
vember the proposition of dividing
the county into two counties. Both
divisions would contain about twenty
four townships. The new county is to

Charles J. McClenhand, wanted in
Ohio for the embezzlement of $7,000
from the Central Union Insurance
company at Converse, Ohio, was ar
rested at Staples after having made a
spectacular escape from an Ohio
detective at Pine River. There are
said to be over thirty indictments
against McClenhand, who was known
at Pine River as John Lee.
While Mrs. Hannah Nelson, wife of
a settler living twenty-five miles
northwest of Nashwauk, was polish
ing her kitchen stove, the bottle of
liquid polish exploded and set fire to
her clothing. She was alone in the
house at the time but managed to
smother the flames with an old carpet
which was lying on the floor. She
was severely burned and at first her
life was despaired of, but it is now
believed she will recover.
One of the much-discussed improve
ments that the Great Northern road
was reported to have planned in Min
neapolis will not be made. The newgines.
yard at Bryn Mawr will not be
created because of a sink-hole, as
the story now goes, that the engineers
have been unable to transform to
solid earth. New tracks will be built,
however, at St. Anthony Park, the
St. Paul suburb, where a number of
small hills will be leveled to secure
additional ground.
It is expected that forged checks of
a Duluth concern will soon be in cir
culation. W. M. Prindle & Co., one
of the leading real estate firms of Du
luth, received a bill from the Cootey
Lithographing company of Minne
apolis for printing blank checks for
the firm, the bill stating that they had
been delivered to the personal repre
sentative of the firm. None were
ever ordered and, moreover they are
drawn on the First National bank of
Duluth, while the firm's account is
kept at another bank. Some one has
had the checks printed and will un
doubtedly soon be issuing them.
Seven big farm teams running away
at one time made a terrifying specta
cle in Beauford. The runaways oc
curred at the creamery, and no one
seems to be able to tell how they
started or whether any one was to
blame. All of the horses apparently
went into action at the same time.
People ran for their lives and the
sweep of the maddened animals down
the road, with the heavy wagons
dragging behind, was like a charge
by a battery of artillery. Several
vehicles were tipped over, but little
milk was spilled as most of the loads
had been delivered. No one was ser
iously injured, but some very narrow
escapes are reported.
A dispute over a cow belonging to
August Miller of Lakeland led to a
conflict between Mrs. Miller and her
neighbor. Mrs. Dorothy Reinsberg,
which resulted in*a trial in the munici
pal court. The cow was taken up for
trespassing, and Mrs. Miller, armed
with a hammer, released it. Then the
THE
two women engaged in angry words
and the throwing of missiles over a
fence at each other. Mrs. Miller and
her husDand were arrested on war
rants sworn out by Mrs. Reinsberg,
but the man was discharged. A fine
of $1 and costs, making $34.44 was
imposed on Mrs.'Miller. Now Mrs.
Miller has sworn out a warrant of as
sault against Mrs. Reinsberg.
Frank McVea, alias William Burns,
who was sentenced to life imprison
ment for the murder of Marshal Ole
Havey at Hayfield in December last
and who escaped from the sheriff
while in the basement of the court
house at Mantorville, was captured
on the farm of Bird Scripture, three
miles west of Eden. Mrs. Scripture
went into the haymow for eggs and
stumbled upon the man buried in the
hay. Several men came and took him
out and firmly roped him and he was
taken back to jail. McVea was identi
fied by Grand Juryman Hubbard,
who returned the indictment. McVea
had no hat or shoes and was greatly
exhausted from exposure and hunger
and his feet were in terrible condition
from some twenty miles of shoeless
travel. Scripture will receive the $500
reward.
DENATliRIZEO ALCOHOL.
JRomoval of Tax Would. Revolutionize Fuel.
Power and Illuminant Problems.
Congressman Murdock claims that
if the tax is taken off denatured al
cohol it will work a revolution in the
field of fuel, power and illuminants.
He says:
"This will be accomplished par
tially through known methods, but a
greater development will come through
methods to be discovered, for there
is no industrial avenue closed to the
open sesame of American genius. By
known methods the same volume of
alcohol burns nearly twice as long as
kerosene and gives a far better light
it is a cleaner and safer fuel than
gasoline. By methods that are to
come I believe alcohol will advance
far beyond its present superiority. I
believe this because this country, the
chief producer of corn, which is the
best source of alcohol, has for nearly
fifty years Held industrial alcohol in
leash. In those fifty years all other
chemical products and fuels and ll
luminants have been free. Burnable
alcohol, for industrial use, has been
held back. Release it, let American
genius have hold of it, and it will
open the door to a chamber of mar
vels.
"The most important effect of re
moving the tax on denatured alcohol
would be its regulation of the present
erratic price of kerosene and gasoline.
Gasoline sells in some of the eastern
cities at 9 cents per gallon and in
some of the western states at 30 cents
per gallon. Kerosene has a similar
range. The price of both is arbi
trarily fixed. Actual tests have dem
onstrated that alcohol at 30 cents a
gallon is cheaper for light than kero
sene at 15 cents a gallon. Twenty
cent alcohol would drive 10-cent kero
sene down in price or out of the mar
ket. For internal combustion engines
20-cent alcohol would bring 30-cent
gasoline down to 20 cents and would
in time supplant it, perhaps, because
gasoline, of which petroleum yields
but two per cent, is increasing in price
because of its increased use in en-
'"The internal combustion engine is
making a conquering march through
the land. Light in weight, small in
size, easy to start, requiring a mini
mum of attendance while in operation,
it is everywhere bringing new econ
omies. It is turning the weekly news
paper press, the town feed mills, the
lathe of the village blacksmith, the
belt of the local elevator, and in some
sections it bales the farmer's hay,
shells his corn, shreds the fodder,
pumps the water, separates the cream,
saws the wood. With the tax removed
from denatured alcohol the use of
the internal combustion engine will in
crease by leaps and bounds. Experts
estimate that the output will reach
100,000 alcohol engines a year.
'In 1860 this country produced 90,-
000,000 gallons of alcohol. This was
before the tax went on. David A.
Wells, a special commissioner, re
ported to the Fifty-third congress that
in his opinion 33 per cent of the whole
product, prior to the imposition of
any taxes on alcohol, was consumed
in the arts and industries. Conse
quently, with a population of 30,000,-
000 in 1860 we used industrially and
for fuel and light 30,000,000 gallons,
that is one gallon of alcohol per
capita. Leaving out of consideration
the great inventions which have come
since 1860, other new uses and im
proved methods, the same production
would bring our use of denatured
alcohol today up to 75,000,000 gallons
annually. It will be far greater than
that."
