Sioux City, lowa, Oct. 18.—Two weeks
ago Thomas Biglin, aged 13, ran away
from his home at Alta. He was traced
as far aa Sioux City, ■where the trail was
lost. Last Sunday a body was found?
floating in the Missouri at Omaha, so
badly decomposed that it must have been
in the water a week. The father was
called to Omaha yesterday, and he identi

supposed the boy was knocked on* a bridge
by a railroad train.

The skin is the seat of an almost end-.
Jess variety of diseases. They are known
1y various names, but are all due to the
same cause, acid and other poisons in
the blood that irritate and interfere with
the proper action of the skin.
To have a smooth, soft skin, free from
all eruptions, the blood must be kept pure
and healthy. The many preparations of
arsenic and potash and the large number
of face powders and lotions generally
used in this class of diseases cover up
for a short time, but cannot remove per
manently the ugly blotches and the red,
disfiguring pimples.
Eternal vigilance Is the prioo
of a beautiful complexion
when such remedies are relied on.
Mr. H. T. Shobe, 7704 Lucas Avenue, St. Louis,
Mo., says: "My daughter was afflicted for years
with a disfiguring eruption on her face, which
resitted alMreatment. She was taken to two
celebrated health springs, but received no bene
fit. Many medicines were prescribed, but with
out result, until we decided to try 8. S. 8., and by
the time the first bottle *as finished the eruption
began to disappear. A dozen bottles cured her
completely and left her skin perfectly smooth.
Che is now seventeen years old, and not a sign of
the embarrassing disease has ever returned."
S. S. S. is a positive, unfailing cure for
the worst forms of akin troubles. It is
the greatest of all blood purifiers, and the
only one guaranteed purely vegetable.

Drainage Undertaking in Freeborn
of Great Magnitude.
Tract Was Deemed Worthless Thirty
Years Ajjo—Three Towns
r Special to The Journal.
Albert Lea. Minn., Oct. 18.—Twenty-five
or thirty years ago, when land in Free
born county was worth scarcely $5 an
acre, thore was a vast acreage of what
was denominated slough land. It was
considered worthless because nothing was
raised in the county save wheat, and farm
ers required dry land for that crop. Since
stock raising and dairying have come to
be so profitable and universally engaged
in, the worthless land of a third or quar
ter of a century ago has come to be
looked upon as too valuable to be allowed
to remain idle and the result has been
that many of the sloughs, in fact most of
the smaller ones, have been drained and
are now used for hay and pastures, and
in many instances the land has been so
thoroughly drained that it is plowed and
cropped the same as any other part of the
county. Many thousands of acres have
thus been added to the area of tillable
land in Preeborn county and also to the
tax rolls.
In the towns of Riceland, Moscow and
Geneva, around Rice Lake and at the
lower end of Geneva lake, there was a
vast amount of land that gradually fell
into the hands of speculators. At one
time George B. Van Norman of Milwaukee
owned several thousand acres of this
tract and Hastings & McMillan, of Minne
apolis, secured a large area, while L. D.
Holems, a farmer in Geneva township,
now deceased, bought several hundred
acres and used what was available for
pasture but much of it was too low to be
of any value. The Van Norman tract
several years ago fell Into the hands of
Barber Bros., of Pana, 111., Mr. McMillan
purchased the interest of his partner and
much of the Holems tract has been sold
to \V. A. Morin, of this city. The land in
the county has become so valuable, the
price ranging from $35 to $75 an acre,
that these tracts warrant the expenditure
of large sums in making them arable.
Accordingly a petition is now pending
before the board of commissioners of
Freeborn county asking that a drain be
constructed so that all the tract will be
drained. The petition is signed by P. D.
McMillan, Kenneth Mcßae, W. A. Morin,
H. N. Brown, L. A. Brown and many
farmers whose lands are adjacent to the
swamps and a hearing will be held on
the 23d. If the drain is constructed what
was once Rice lake, which has long been
nothing but a swamp, and many acres of
surrounding slough, will be drained and
made dry land. The drain or ditch will
be an enlarging of the Turtle river, a
natural water way, and will be about nine
miles in length. The cost will be, rough
ly estimated, from $15,000 to $20,000, but
it will affect about as many acres of land.
Of course some will protest against this
drainage of water surface on the ground
that from it vapor arises and rain is pro
duced. There may be some truth in this
phase of the question, as the water sur
face of Freeborn county 'has almost all
disappeared as compared to what it was
early in its settlement, but the demands
for land are so pressing and this will be
so productive when redeemed that there
seems abundant excuse for the proceed
ing, and no doubt the commissioners will
grant the petition as the land benefited
pays all the expense and it will add sev
eral thousand acres to the taxable proper
ty of this county.
It is stated that Barber Bros, will, as
soon as the land is drained, ©lace Ger
mans from Illinois upon their tract and
in the shortest time possible bring it
into a high state of cultivation. In this
way land that was practically worthless
I thirty years ago and commanded only $2
I or $3 an acre twenty years ago, will be
made worth from $30 to $60 an acre and
afford sustenance and employment for
many people. The 15,000 acres affected
would make nearly a hundred good-sized
farms, and at five persons to the farm
500 people would be added to the popula
tion of the county.
Permanent Headquarters of the Mod
ern Brotherhood of America.
Special to The- Journal.
Sioux Falls, S. D., Oct. 18.—Steps were
taken at a special meeting of the city
council, held last evening, to press to a
successful conclusion Sioux Falls' can
didacy for the permanent headquarters of
the head offices of the Modern Brother
hood of America. The present headquar
ters of this organization is at Tipton,
lowa, but they are not satisfactory, and
at a meeting of the grade lodge, which
will be held at Sioux City in the near
future, it is likely that decisive action
will be taken.
An application for the organization of a
new lodge of Elks at Lead, in the Black
Hills, has been received by.H. H. Keith
of this city, district deputy exalted ruler
for the Elks of South Dakota.
The probate court has just closed a
case which has been pending for over
twenty-one years. Peter Begg was burned
to death by a prairie lire in the sum
mer of 18&1. In the following Octdber
a son was born, and it was not possible
to close the affairs of the estate until
this son became of age. He was 21 years
old this week, and the heirs appeared be
fore County Judge Bailey for a division
of the estate.
Swimmin' Hole in the River
Every time a Minneapolis physician
goes to St. Paul he returns with a clearer
apprehension of the fact that although
Minneapolis has about 75,000 more peo
ple .than her twin brother down the river,
she is a bit untidy. In other words, the
little brother, thanks to Dr. O'Hage's
public baths, has a cleaner face than Sis
ter Minne.
Dr. F. A. Dunsmoor is one of the local
physicians w%o takes a deep interest in
the institutions known as public baths.
With a river flowing through the town
he cannot understand why it is that Min
j neapolis cannot provide bathing facilities
1 as well as little St. Paul.
"Why not make a swimming park of .the
river for a long distance down stream?"
inquires the doctor. "Accommodations for
] thousands of bathers could be established
I cheaply. The water would be free.
I Dressing rooms for the boys dug out of
the sand rock would not be expensive.
There is really no reason why the river
could not be utilized by everybody, men
and women alike. If objection is made
that bathers in the water do not look
I nice, I might answer that there are a
| good many things in Minneapolis which do
I not look well from an aesthetic point of
! view, besides, what harm is there in chil-
I dren, or grown people, .too, for that mat
ter, bathing in the river, in decent attirt?
"Bathing suits could be provided et
trifling expense, and the whole proposition
could be settled in short order if we
would only take hold of it In the right
Dr. Dunsmoor as well as other promi
| nent physicians, has heard about the
Kiinball Bros.' natatorium, a swimming
hole at Parsons, Kan., originally built by
four boys for their own use. The "hole"
has been in operation four years, and was

Father's Claim on Children Defined
by Supreme Court.
He'd Won In Lower Courts, but
Failed to Appear on
Eight decisions were handed down by
the supreme court to-day, three of them
appeals from Hennepin county.
Mabel O. Greenwood wins In the suit
brought against her by Williston W.
Greenwod, her husband. She will continue
to have custody of their children, Grace,
aged 4, and Stamvery, aged 8. The court
states that while under the statutes the
father, if a suitable person, shall have the
custody of his minor children, it is not
an absolute right, and, in view of their
tender years, the Greenwood infants will
remain with the mother until a further
order of the district court of Hennepin
county. The father will be permitted
"to freely see and visit with his children
each Wednesday from 7 to 8 o'clock p. m.,
and each Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m."
The 'Hennepin county court is reversed
twice. One reversal 13 in the case of
Arthur D. Hathaway against R. A. Cass
and Elmer E. Cass. The appeal turned
on a question of fact, as to whether the
plaintiff had properly delivered a deed to
the defendants. The evidence showed
that the deed "was delivered to Wicks,
Paige & Lamb, the defendant's attorneys,
but thet they failed to notify their clients
for eight months. The lower court held
that there was not a proper delivery.
Judge Lewis holds that delivery to de
fendant's attorneys was legal, and the
case will now go to the Jury.
Nancy J. Hunter wins her appeal against
Cobe & McKlnnon, and will get a new trial
of the case. She sued for breach of a con
tract to sell a leasehold In some Minne
apolis real estate, in which she acted
through an agent. Defendants contended
that the agent did not show sufficient au
thority, but the supreme court holds that
they admitted the agent's authority and
are bound to stand by their action.
B. T. Crawford, of Ortonvllle, failed to
appear to argue his client's case, and al
though he won in the lower court, the
order is reversed on account of Crawford's
negligence, and S. W. Smith, the respond
ent, loses.
Emma H. A. Peterson got a verdict for
damages against the village of Cokato for
injuries caused by a defective sidewalk.
The village appealed, but the verdict is
One assignment of error alleges that the

behalf of Grace Greenwood and Stamvery
"W. Greenwood, relator, vs. Mabel O.
Greenwood, Orrin W. Pettit and Ellia Pet-
tit, respondents.
Syllabus: 1. While the statute, G. S.
1894, section 4540, provides that the father, If
a suitable person, shall have the custody and
care of his minor children, yet this right Is
not an absolute one, for in controversies be
tween parents as to their custody the welfare
of the children will be given controlling con
sideration by the court.
2. In this case, in view of the tender years
of the minor children, their custody is
awarded to their mother.
• —Per Curiam.
Nancy J. Hunter, appellant, vs. Ira M. Cobe
and John W. McKinnon, co-partners as
Cobe & McKinnon, respondents.
Syllabus: 1. Ratification of the act of an
other performed in the assumed capacity of
an agent, though wholly without precedent
authority, creates the relation of principal
and agent and the former becomes bound by
the act to the same extent aa if it had been
done by his previous authorization.
2. A principal Is not at liberty to dis
affirm if he has assented to the act of an
agent after being informed of all of the
material facts of a transaction In which the
agent has exceeded his authority.
3. Held, in the case at bar, which was an
action to recover damages arising out of a
breach of an alleged contract to sell and as
sign a leasehold interest in real property, that
the trial court erred when it dismissed the
case upon the ground that plaintiff had failed
to show the making of a valid contract to
sell and assign such interest. Order reversed
and new trial granted. — Collins, J.
Arthur D. Hathaway, appellant, vs. R. A.
Cass and Elmer E. Cass, respondent
Syllabus: A certain deed was produced at
the trial by the attorneys for plaintiff, and
they testified that it had been delivered to
them for the plaintiff, and that they had
conducted the transaction as his attorneys.
Held, this evidence constituted a prima facie
case of the delivery of the deed to the plaln
tiffv. and it was not conclusively overcome by
the fact that plaintiff was not notified of its
delivery to his attorneys until eight months
thereafter, or by the further fact that the
attorneys retained possession of the deed a
year and a half after they received it It
was a question for the Jury to find, from all
the evidence, whether or not the deed had
been delivered to the plaintiff. Order re

James Meehan, Jr., his guardian, appellant,
vs. The Northwestern Mutual Relief Asso
ciation, alias The Northwestern National

Syllabus: It 1b held, in an action to re
cover upon a life insurance policy, that the
complaint failed to state facts sufficient to
constitute a cause of action against the de

Kmma M. A. (Peterson, respondent, vs. Vil
lage of Cokato, a corporation, appellant.—
Firet—The general statutes providing for
the Incorporation of villages confer upon the
municipalities the exclusive control and su-
in the regulation swimming hole at La
bette creek, near the Kansas town. When
the boys found themselves estopped from
paddling in the creek, they discovered
a gold mine, so to speak, in an old cellar
hard by. It had water and sewer con
nections, and they at once proceeded to
make it water tight. This was speedily
accomplished by cement, sand and a
brick mason. It was next necessary to
cover it, and the boys utilized for this
purpose the lumber from an old frame
house which had been torn down in the
neighborhood. Rude dressing rooms were
fixed up, and a fence about seven feet
high enclosed the "hole."
The boys secured water connection by
the outlay of a few dollars, and then an
nounced themselves ready for business.
As soon as the "kids" of Parson town
tumbled to the new swimming hole, they
were seized with a desire to .try it, and the
Kimball boys were soon forced to impose
a prohibitive price of 5 cents per swim.
But this did not stop the small boys, nor
the big ones either, all of whom were
struck by the conveniences and cleanly
appointments of the "hole."
As .the nickels poured in, the boys began
to branch out in the natatorium line. Ad
ditions were built, shower baths were
put in and all the improvements of an up
to-date natatorium were installed.
The pool Is in the shape of an L, .the
longer arm being 20x35 feet, seven feet
deep, and the short arm 16x16, 314 feet
The records of the Kansas swimming
hole during the past season show over
2,000 swims at a nickel "per," and that
in a city of only 9,000 inhabitants.
Dr. Dunsmoor wonders why the big boys
of Minneapolis cannot provide something
nearly as good and as cheap in the Father
of Waters.

and maintain the same repair and
from this follows tha duty aud ob
ligation to do so. The court takes ju
dicial notice of this statutory duty and it is
not necessary to plead or prove the statutes.
Second—lt is held in this action, that it
sufficiently appears from the record that de
fendant was incorporated as a village under
the general statutes of the state.
Third—To be effectual as a notice to the
common council of an incorporated village,
the notice of claim for damages required to be
given by Ch. 218, L. 1897, where served
upon the village recorder, as custodian of the
records and flies of the council, must be
served upon that office, or place of transact
ing the official business pertaining to his of
fice. It is held in this case that the evidence
is sufficient to justify a finding of a proper
service of such notice.
Fourth —Where the notice is thus properly
served, it is immaterial, in so far as the right
of recovery against the municipality is con
cerned, whether the recorder presented the
same to the village council for their action,
or not.

Nomination of Genin Opposed by
Bishop Shanley.
Controversy May Stir All Flicker
. taildom a* the Pioneer .Priest
Han Friends.
Special to The Journal.
'Bismarck, N. D., Oct. Nominations
for the hall of fame at the forthcoming
St. Louis exposition are exciting much
comment and some controversy through
the state. Originally the names of for- i
mer Governor and United States Senator
Gilbert A. Pierce and Father J. M. B.
Genin, an early Catholic priest, were
sent in. Afterward the name of Pierce
was withdrawn for the reason that he
was not, strictly speaking, one of the
pioneers, and the name of Colonel Wil
liam Thompson, for fifty or sixty years !
a pioneer of Illinois, lowa and Dakota
was substituted. ¥ The name of Father
Genin was allowed .to stand.
On a recent trip "to Bismarck, Bishop
John Shanley, • head of the Catholic
church in the state, gave out an interview
stating that there were many and good
reasons why Father Genin should not be
honored in this manner. While nothing
directly was said • against Genin, the in
ference was that he was unworthy of the
place. •_,.. ■ :
Genin was an early Catholic missionary,
and did long service among the Indian
tribes. IHe has many friends who seek
for him this recognition of what they
claim he has deserved 1 of the state through
his pioneer work. (When Genin died he
left manuscript covering his work among
the Indians, and it is the intention of
his friends to have this published. What
objections the head: of the church in the
state has to his preferment are not
known, but they are presumed to be based
upon some ! ecclesiastical shortcomings,
which his friends claim can be satisfac
torily explained. tAn ardent controversy
is looked for.
' Other suggestions that have been made
for the hall 'of fame are Bishop Marty,
another Catholic pioneer, and Enos Stuts
man, after whom Stutsman county was
named. ' „ VV

days' idleness caused by rain. Flax is re

wheat has been hurt badly. There is not
an idle man to be found, and good wages
are being paid. Two weeks of good
weather will complete the threshing in
Stutsman county. In Foster, Wells,
Eddy and other counties north there is
still enough grain unthreshed to keep all
the machines going for a month.

Deadwood, S. D., Oct. 18.—A few days
ago a young woman giving her name as
Miss Gill, and representing herself as a
head nurse in the Boer hospital in Jo

smooth tongue and nervy manners, suc

who were "bilked'^ are looking for her.

Cams, the Wyoming cattle queen. At
that time she succeeded in getting pos
session of clothing and money and disap
peared without having settled her bills.
It was shown ah© was not the real Laura
Cams, but an lmposter, and it Is be
lieved that the "Boer nurse" is the same
I person.

St. Cloud, Minn., Oct. 18.—Steams
county officials who come in contact with
General Pope, public examiner, are los
ing patience. The latest evidence of hi?
inclination to be a quibbler on minor
point is his rejection because of tech
nicalities of several of the bonds given
by Steams county banking institutions
as security for public funds. The bonds
which failed are identical copies of those
which have been in use by the county
for years and which have heretofore met
with the approval of Deputy Examiner
Koerner, who has all along had Jurisdic
tion o* Steams county matters. New
bonds can and probably will be furnished
but it will Impose a hardship on the bank

Cane Which Recalls a Crime
Sioux Falls, S. D., Oct. 18.— W. H. Heiss, Sr., is the owner of a highly-prized
memento. It is a cane, which was presented to him by Dr. Munn, of Virginia, who
was arrested by the federal authorities after the assassination' of President Lincoln
because he dressed the injured leg of John Wilkes Booth while the assassin was at
tempting to escape. It will be remembered that Dr. Munn was sentenced to ban
ishment oh. Dry Tortugas, and some yearß later, while Mr. Heiss was stationed in
Florida, he became acquainted with the officers in charge of the prisoners at Tortngaa,
and Dr. Munn made him the cane, which he carries to this day. The doctor, who
was pardoned whan his innocence was established, has been dead several years.
