BL WARD U EXCITING CHASE AFTER GREEK Hassler Pursued Georgopouloe), Who Leaped From Train. How Pantigotus Georgopouloe, the Greek arrested here for being an illegal resident of the United States, leaped headlong from the rear of a train moving fifty miles an hour, landed in a pile of gravel unhurt, and was chased for several miles, is told by Herman , Haasler, sheriff, who was serving as a relief suard to P. H. Strctton. United States immigration inspector, who was conducting the Greek to St. Louis. Two miles this side of Clark, Mo., the shackles were removed from the prisoner, so that he could go to the toilet. Stretton followed him. Suddenly he dashed the length of, the car, and leaped over the railing on the end of the last car. Three quarters of a mile farther on the train was stopped. "He is deaf," said the conductor, "for he landed head foremost, in a pile of gravel." Hassler left the train before it stopped completely, and with three track laborers, rode a hand car back to the place when the Greek had scaped. He was just, then running across the top of a nearby hill. Hassler gave chase, and pursued him through pastures and corn fields for more than three miles, finally losing him in a patch of timber. Stretton. in the meantime, had gone to Clark, being unable to of fer pursuit because of a decided tendency toward corpulency. Offi cers of all surrounding tows were notified. In the morning the pursuit was Tesumed, and the place was found where the Greek had eaten his sup per. His trail was followed for some time, and it was found which direction he was following, keeping always away from the roads. Then a telegram was received from R. V. Delaney, deputy sheriff at Paris. Mo., that the Greek had "been arrested as he came into town. A knife and $3 were found in his pockets, which be had stolen or legged while he was at liberty. Hag" aler returned to Abilene and Stret ton resumed his journey to St. Louis, from where the Greek will Te taken to New York with, several of his countrymen, who are also to "be deported. . . the murder which he says Georg opolous committed' in bis family, the Greek might now .be shining shoes, instead of traveling eastward in shackles. Bithos passed through Abilene this morning, bound for New York City. "I am happy in this part of the country," be said. And he was happy, for after a two years' chase, in half the states of the union, he had gained revenge. Georgopoulos will have to stand trial in Greece for the murders. Bithos says. The penalt will be imprisonment in chains a living death if he is found guilty. Bithos says that Georgopoulos murdered his brother-in-law through love of a Zolohavan girl, who did not return bis affection. The mur dered man, according to Bithos, was a brother of the favored youth. Tbe other murder, Bithos said, was that of a twelve-year-old boy, a ton of the man whose testimony was Instrumental in sending Georg opoulos to -jail for- the-' statutory crime. Tbe brothers of Georgopoulos, who swore he had been In this country several years, were given a preliminary hearing before United States Commissioner G. W. Chase in Junction City yesterday on a charge I of perjury, and were bound over for trial by the district court in Topeka this fall. DRIED CANTALOUPES ARE THE NEWEST FRUIT Pantigotus Georgopoulos, alleged murderer, and illegal resident of the .United States, will be returned to his native land. VP. H. Stretton, United Skate immigration Inspec tor from Des Moines, and Herman Hassler, sheriff of Dickinson county, took" him from jail this morning, and left for St Louis, from where he will be taken to New York for 'deportation. Pantigotus claimed to have been in America for four years. Immi gration record proved that he had been here but two years and month. A statutory offense committed In Greece. In 1907.. for which Georg opoulos served four years la prison, re grounds for the government's action. The chsrge of John Bithos. that his countryman committed two murders, did not Influence the de cision of the Immigrstloa officers.

The" turn into profit of some of the millions cf email cantaloupes left in the field every year was a problem the growers feared would never be solved, until Thomas D. McCall of El Centro accidentally discovered tbe fine qualities of the dried article. McCall had dumped a great heap of cantaloupes to one side, breaking several. These dried and gave forth "such a fine aroma that McCall was attracted and he tasted them. He found them excellent, and now cantaloupe growers are drying all their small melons. The dried var iety is said to have a much finer flavor than the fresh fruit. ESCAPED GREEK CAPTURED. Jumped from Train at Clark Ar rested at Paris. ' Paris,' Mo.. Aug. 18.

Up in Michigan, August 14th Editor Reflector: Thinking per haps our friends would like to know something of upper Michigan will write what I have learned of the place. Torch lake lies east of Grand Traverse bay and is 4 to 6 miles wide and 18 miles long. It is sit uated on the upper peninsula and connects with a chain of lakes at Clam. On entering Clam lake is a small outlet which has a bridge that swings, used for freighting mer chandise to Clam which has one store, postortkse and-boat henser. They get all supplys from Alden, which is a nice little town on the P. M. railroad. Small boats go up to Belaire. When these little steam ers come to a bridge the whistle blows three times and a man goes to the middle of bridge where he turns the bridge for boats to pass with a crank. Here we enter Clam lake which is four miles long, then enter Grass river which- is eight miles long and about 30 feet wide, very crooked. Tbe little eteamer has all it can do to get through the turns being so short. Then it enters Grass lake, about tbe size of Clam lake. Here we come to a town on a railroad named Belaire which has saw mill and a good many stores. This is as far up as we have been. The natives are very good farmers on this peninsula. They are rap- Idly developing it into the fruit busi ness. Will have quantities of ap ples and peaches. All kinds of small fruits, currants and blackberries are very plentiful . now. Potatoes and beans are the money makers. Will have a great crop of both as It rains most every other night. Weather is cool and some days are most too cool. Last Sunday we sat by fire. Heavy sweaters are in demand. A great many people are here from Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Ohio. There 'are some very pretty homes on this beautiful lake, all located as near the shore as pos sible. We catch pike, pickerel and black bass. H. C. LITTS. FAVOR SHOT IN FIGHT.
