liiable to Arrest.
Special to The Journal.'
Sioux Falls, S. D. . Dee. 12.Rather
than fear being placed, under arrest
whenever she appears in South Da
kota. Mrs. Mabel Whitney, who a few
weeks ago made her escape in a sen
sational manner from* the state hos
pital for the insane at Yankton, has
returned to Sioux Falls for the express
purpose of having herself declared
sane and restored to her rights as a
citizen. ':..-/-
TC. E . Wagner- of. Alexandria, em
ployed by her as her :attorney, made
application to County Judge Bailey
for a rehearing in hei* cas e. The
county judge granted it and sum
moned A . B . Wheelockr S. A.' Brown
and E . A. Orr, well known citizens of
Sioux Falls, to act as ^ special jury or
commission to pass uponhe r sanity.
The examination'was held, yesterday,
afternoon, and it is expected the find
ings of the special jury or- commis-
sion will be reported to County Judge
Bailey to-day. 1
One o f Mrs. Whitney's first acts,
should she be declared sane by the
special commission, will be to secure
possession of her boy,.. who is with
h is aunt, Mrs. J . M . MeDbugall, at
Lakota, N . D .
Mr s. Whitney's presence in the city
was kept a profound, secret for some
little time, she having, it is learned,
arrived quietly with the crowds com
ing to attend- the retail implement
dealers', convention and the great
meeting of Shrlner 's Thursday -night.
She went, directly, to the . residence
of^Sheriff Hustonan d has since re
mained with Mrs. Huston. Her re
turn to South. Dakota, where she was
liable to arrest at any moment, cer
tainly proves :that she has her full
share of pluck. .'.'..*

Most Important
in buying food-products several things are to be thought
ofi. e., Economy, Results, Easy Handling, Reliability
but the most important is Health.
Health means everything. - In buying clothes, shoes,
hats, furniture, etc., if the. buyer is deceived and gets an
imitation the only harm is loss of money. In buying food-
products, if imitations are supplied, there is not only a loss
of money but perhaps an injury to healthwhich is
beyond price. : ^ - . ' . -
