Found by a Farmer's Wife in a
Hayloft, He Surrenders
Without a Fight.
Hayfield, Minn., April 7.Frank Mc
Vey, confessed, murderer of Marshal
,01e Harvey of this place, who escaped
from the Mantorville jail on Thursday,
after being sentenced to Stillwater, pris
on ior life, was captured at 6:30 last
night by E. B. Scripture, a farmer, who
lives between this city and Dodge Cen
ter.
Mrs. Scripture went to the barn to
gather eggs about 6 o'clock. She saw
something move under the hav of the
loft and at once called the hired man
and several neighbors.
McVey surrendered without a strug
gle. He w8jm hatless and his clothes
were torn to pieces.
Mr. Hubbard, one of the neighbors
who helped capture McVey, had been
a member, of the grand iury which in
dicted him. He identified the murderer
at once.
Scripture telephoned the county at
tprney and was told to bring McVey
to Mantoryille immediately. The pris
oner was taken under a strong guard
to the county seat.
McVey was indicted on Wednesday
by the grand jury for murder in the
first degree. He was immediately ar
raigned and by stipulation pleaded
guilty to murder in the second degree
and was sentenced by Judge Buckham
to Stillwater for life.
A reward of $500 will be paid to
Scripture, the prisoner's captor.

You Can Do Better
in the Southwest
The opportunities for men of average means are better today in the South-
west than in any other section. You can get more for your labor or your in-
vestment here than elsewhere. If you ^purchase a farm in the Southwest now,
while the land.is cheap, you will soon, see grow up around you a community of
'-w^ prosperous, energetic men, who, like*yourself, have
seen the possibilities of the Southwest, and have
""t taken advantage of them. This very condition,
now forming all over the Southwest, makes the
value of land increase rapidly to the certain prof
it of those who invest now.
If you're any way Interested in the Southwest, I'd like to send
you a copy of my free paper, "The Coming Country." Address

Along the line of the Missouri, Kansas &
Texas B'y (see map) In Indian Territory, Okla-^_,
homa and Texas are vast areas of unimproved
landland not now yielding the crops of which
it is capable. The same thing, in a different
way, is true of the towns. Few lines of busi
ness are adequately represented. There are
openings for mills and manufacturing plants,
for small stores of all kinds, for banks, for
newspapers and lumber yards. Mechanics and
professional men both are in demand.
On-April 17th
you can make the trip Southwest exceptionally
cheap. Tickets are good 21 days, with stop-over
privileges. These cheap rates will also apply on
May 1st and 15th. If your
nearest railroad agent cannot
give you the rates, write me
for particulars.

During 'the past year there has been a storm of criticism of
insurance companies.
But not even a breeze "has troubled the STATE MUTUAL LIFE
ASSURANCE COMPANY OF WORCESTER, MASS. Its manage
ment and results have been approved, and last years business ex
ceeded any previous year's. It is great to sustain such a reputa
tion in ordinary timesmuch greater now.
The State Mutual's experience is easily explained:
It operates under the Massachusetts law, which makes a com-
pany's management properly responsible to its policy holders.
Its management is extremely economical. The total Home
Office expense for 1905 was only $77,061, covering the salaries
of all the officers and the entire Home Office staff of clerks.
The State Mutual tfes no affiliated trust or promoting com-
panies and makes annual distribution of surplus on all participating
policies so that all profits go to the policy holders, and year by
year the actual results of its management are known and pub-
lished.
If you want Insurance send your name and age to a State Mutual agent
and do it now. Delay cannot benefit you and may deprive your family of the
amount of the policy which you would take.
