Rhode Island Man Brutally Slain
by a Companion in North
western Minnesota.
Crookston, Minn., Oct. 20.As the
details of the murder of the man sup
posed to be Philliaa or Thomas Fon
taine of Woonsoeket, R. I., one mile
the other side of Mentor, are received,
the crime appears to be one of the most
brutal ever known in northern Minne
Fontaine and Joseph Guilmette, both
of Rhode Island, had been in the vicin
ity of Mentor several days. Last
week they appeared at the Lapage
farm, and Fontaine discovered that he
and Lapage came from the same vicin
ity. Fontaine owned a farm in the east
and was fairly well-to-do. He carried
some money, but the exact amount is
not known.' He made arrangements to
have a hunt with Lapage later. Fri
day night the two men stayed with the
Lapage family and started hunting
Saturday morning. They were seen in
Mentor Sunday and ate at a restaurant,
the employees of which have positively
identified Fontaine's body, as did La
Members of the Mareaux family
heard a shot and 10 minutes later a
second one, but were not surprised, as
at this season of the year shooting is
Fontaine was found beside the rail
road track. A bullet had entered the
head behind the ear, and, tearing its
way thru the back of the head, came
out on the other side. His body had
been hauled by the heels, flopped over
and dragged face downward over the
uneven railroad ties. After being rolled
down an embankment and dragged into
the brush along the track, the remains
were almost disemboweled.
Face Mutilated by Shot.
After the body had been dragged to
the brush, another shot had,been fired
full into the face.- The gun was held
so close that the gun wads were buried
an inch deep in the dirt on either side
of the jemains.
Eight deputy sheriffs are scouring the
county in search of Guilmette. He is
described as of medium height and
weight, five feet ten inches tall, wearing
dark clothes and a corduroy cap. It is
said that he cannot read English, but
reads French fluently.
A telegram from Fertile is to the ef
fect that Guilmette tried to buy a case
there for his shotgun. He was headed
south when he left that place. A let
ter found in the pocket of the murdered
man bore the name of Albert Desrochers
of the firm of Desorviers Brothers,
druggists, Woonsoeket, R. I.
Known at Woonsoeket.
Woonsoeket, R. I., Oct. 20.Fontaine,
the murder victim in Minnesota, was
well known here. He was about 32 and
unmarried. He went west last summer
with Joseph Guilmette under a contract
to gather spruce gum for Desrochers
Brothers, druggists of Woonsoeket, and
was expected to return in a short time.
His family moved away from here soon
after he went west.

B. M. Chapman, the grocer, now has
one of the biggest, high-grade' candy fac
tories in the northwest in connection
with his store, at Nicollet and. Eighth

Candies" have been very popular with
lovers of fine confections, and the
popularity accounts for the expansion
which has recently taken place in the
candy department. The capacity now is

in attractive packages. One whole win
dow at the Chapman store is now deferred

is a Genuine Swiss Milk Chocolate
Cream. The chocolate for the coating
of this delightful candy is imported
direct by Mr. Chapman from Lausanne,
Switzerland, and is considered the best
chocolate in the world.
