I ped according to the views of Ste fansson. who believes that' wben a man is in tbe north he should live as the natives do and get his food with bis gun Certain members of the party did not relish blubber food, and Stefans son's orders were disregarded, with the result that, the ship was heavily provisioned with all sorts of eat ables at Alaskan ports, principally Nome. It is understood that the bill will be unexpectedly heavy. No one here believes that Captain Bartlett, who was In charge of the ship, would deliberately leave Ste fansson, but the court of the ship would be determined by the council, and whatever tbe council decided the skipper of the vessel have to carry out. would MAJ.

YOUNQ FARMER WITH PROSPECT Some Believe Murder By Unknown , Man Who Lets Suspicion Rest on Fred . . Yarnall. Lucas, Dec. 16. Only the voice less walls of a little farm house near Lucas, Kan., seem to know the an swer to tbe mystery of the death of I Charles McVey. Yarnell, tbe man found In a stu por In the same house witn tne dead man, says on tbe witness stand that be knows nothing about what happened and the people of tbe community believe Aim. Many think that suicide is the answer. Intangible, mysterious, ; perhaps only a figment of tbe imagination, but real In the minds of many Lucas citizens, there lurks a mysterious and unknown stranger, either In the community or out la the world' where search would be unlikely,' who could tell, if he would, the story of McVey's death'. Tbe coroners Jury brought In a verdict of suicide, but several Jur ors are not satisfied. In their minds still lurks the1 vision of a mysterious third party, an unknown murderer, frightened by bis crime and hiding himself away in some strange city, leaving tbe suspicion of a crime hanging over the head of the dead man's brother-in-law, Fred Yarnall. McVey's death' occurred In Octo ber. He was a hard working man and was trying to establish his wife and children In comfortable cir cumstances. But one day he was found stretch ed on his bed, his head either crush ed or blown open and his blood spattered on the wall. In another room his brother-in-law, Frtd Yar nall, was found- In a stupor from which he did not recover for sev eral hours. Clean old papers for sale at the Reflector. So a bundle.
