Heed demonstrated during the campaign last fall that he } was considerable of a sprinter, but; Sunday afternoon he put his ability; in that line to practical use by run-1 ning dov. n a thief. The man gave the name of 11. (>. j Hansen. He had been working with the| Wisconsin Central bridge gang! and in an c.l moment stole a suit of j clothes from one of his bunk mates ! and left town. The sheriff was no j tilled and located his man at Bruce, ; but when lie got there tlie autliori-j ties laid lost sight of him and sup- j posed he had left tow n. Mr. Heed went on to Weyerhaeuser and, find- i ing no trace of the thief there, was returning on the railroad track and on rounding a curve came face to face with his man. The culprit had several rods the start, but the sher iff won tlie race after a three mile chase through the woods south of; the track. Hansen was arraigned before J us- j tice A. N.

An association of brewers recently passed resolutions favoring thestrict enforcement of laws restricting the sale to minors and intoxicated per sons, sale on Sunday, etc. The ar guments used were not based on Scripture, ethical principles or phil anthropy, but on business consider ations. It was argued that if the present- open and glaring violations of the law practiced by many saloon keepers is continued the people w ill rise in wrath and wipe out the whole business. While this sort of argu ment can’t be commended very strongly, it will be a good thing if tin* liquor interests aid in securing the enforcement of the laws, no mat ter what spirit prompts them. —(Jlen Flora Star.
