Last week a lady well advanced in
years, who, from what can be ascer
tained, was a successful charity con
fidence worker, was brought to the
lunch counter of F. C. Geiger. In
addition to her old age she claimed
to be.blind in one eye and have poor
sight in the other. She paid for her
meager lunch out of a hankerchief in
which was a very small amout of
money. After eating she smoked a
few times to pass away time while
waiting for the Rushmore train where
she first said she wanted to go. Mrs.
Geiger, desiring to make it as pleas
ant for her as possible, invited her
into the living apartment. She then
thought she would go but to relatives
in St. Kilian, afterwards thought she
would go to Blue Earth City, but fin
ally concluded to go to Mankato.
^sympathizing with the
lady account of her old age, re
mained up and accompanied her to
the depot for the midnight train. She
bought a ticket for Mankato, and in
paying for it exhibited a large roll of
bills. It Was afterward learned that
she left the train at Heron Lake. Mr.
Geiger, being suspicious, and haying
heard of such a person being in Sioux
City a couple of years ago, who was
living at a hotel at the city's expense
and after requesting wine with her
meals was ordered JJout of the city, he
wrote to the police matron there, who
said this was the same party and was
a most successful confidence woman,
or man, she did not know which, but
thought she was a man.
