Sick and Hungry, Arrives at Bemidji Where Letter I Found Dis closing His IdentityRelatives Are Notified and the Wanderer Taken Home to Receive $18,000. Special to The Journal. Cass Lake, Minn., Dec. 21.From a common lumberjack and wanderer on the face of the earth, penniless, sick, apparently without a rela tive or friend, and thrown upon the mercy of strangers, to the sudden acquirement of a for tune amounting to $13,000 is the story of Wil liam Grow, a common workman who has been at- Bemidji for several dajs. Last Friday a -worn-out individual, clad in thin gaiments and with only a pair of over shoes on his feet, walked Into the saloon owned by F. E Dudley at Bemidji, and, accosting the propiletor, told him a story of hardship that at once touched the heart of Dudley. Grow, who is 60 years of age, had walked to Bemidji from Park Rapids, a distance of fifty miles, and had tasted food but once on the trip. One of his feet was frozen, he was ill and in a pitiable condition. Dudley took the man to a bed and sent for Dr. W. R. Monison. The clothes of the sick man weie searched and in one of his pocketB was found a letter from Des Moines, wiltten by a sister The letter contained a request for the whereabouts of Grow, and asked that if the letter was obtained by the William Grow wanted he should write at once to the sister. The letter was wiitten In guarded language, not disclosing any particular reason foi ascertaining the wheieabouts of the brother. Dr Morrison wrote to the sister. The reply came in a telegram, requesting that everj thing possible be done for the sick man, and stating that a person would go to Bemidji and look after him. In the meantime Grow had rapidly recovered, his condition having been caused by his long exposure and other hardships. Monday evening D. Grow, a physician of Des Moines, arrived at Beuidj and, after see ing the man, said he was his brother. He said that for several yeais diligent search had been made to find him, and that there was a sum Of $18,000 de *site in a bank at Des Moines for him, that being his share of an estate left by a wealthy relative to William and P. D. Grow and their sister. William Grow was soon strong enough to make the trip to Des Moines, and aftei he had been fitted out with a new suit of clothes and otherwise transformed, he left with his, brotner foi the old home Before leaving the brothers warmly thanked Dudley and Dr Morrison for their kindness. From the Des Moines physician it was learned that Grow had left home at an early age, and had been tiamping about the oountiy, buffeted from pillar to post and living the life of a man without means or purpose in life. It was by the meiest accident that his name was seen in a paper which led to the meeting of the two brothers FORTUNE FO FARMER Cleveland Township Ma Receives Check for Share of Estate. ST PETER.
