i JK .•jiS,. FART H. Purie-i 9 to 12. REPUBLICAN, ESTABLISHED SEPT. 5, 1878. TALES OF A M!!® ANOTHER MAN WHO ENRICHES 'MRS HAMILTON" APPEARS. FriafMl Much Engaged #0 Vfy Engaging Mr*. Bins F. Varrault, N» Finnegan of Ironton, Wit., Her Life Story. New York, Aug. 15.—1There were rapid developments in the United States district attorney's inquiry into the history of Mrs. Bina F. Varrault, alias Mrs. Helen Hamilton, and her "widow" associates. If everything1 that was told District Attorney C&rmody be true, there may be some amusing days in court. Before the sun was up Leo Kiesler of the claim department of the Mutual Life Insurance Co., was on his way to Mr. Car mod y to tell how he had given $4,500 to Mrs. Verrault. This happened in about the same way that James B. MacClellan, the Philadel phian parted with $2,800. Kiesler had heard of MacClellan's affair and he wanted to give corroborative evidence. So impressive was the story told by Kiesler that Mr. Carmody speedily had a second warrant issued for Mrs. Verrault's arrest She outwitted a deputy marshal sent to her house, and is believed to have left town. A man who was with Verrault told some reporters Mrs. Verrault's lljfe story, while Verrault, who stood by, nodded assent. Mrs. Verrault, this man said, was born about thirty-two years ago in Ironton, Wis. Her maiden name was Bina Finnegan. Her father was a fre quenter of saloons and was killed in a brawl her mother died after a spree. One of Blna's brothers is a schoolmaster in Ironton and another is. an agent for the Rock Island rail road at Chicago. When in Her Teens. Bina Finnegan, a girl of rare beauty, went to Chicago and found a position with the Prussian Life Insurance Co. Taking a sudden dislike to the name of Finnegan she had herself called by the name of Forrestre. In Chicago she met Mrs. Izella Brown. This was in 1892. The two wo men became close friends. Izella Brown was then called Mrs. James Pemberton Brown and posed as a widow. She was older than Bina Fin negan and had a great influence over her. It was not long before the- two women became involved in transac tions of which the police became aware and they left Chicago hurried ly. Bina Finnegan went to Philadelphia in 1901 and there, at a boarding house, Verrault met her. He was captivated by her pretty face and on Feb. 16 of that year they were married. When the honeymoon was a week old Mrs. Verrault was caught shoplifting in a Philadelphia store, according to her husband, and was sent to jail. When she got out she began drinking. She disappeared for three days and Ver A r. rault was distracted. When she re turned home he forgave her and they went to Baltimore. There his wife drnk harder than ever, Verrault said, and he found that she had taken up again with Izella Brown. To get her away from that woman, Verrault brought his wife to New York. He rented the fine brown stone residence at No. 114 West Seventy-third street. One day izella Brown Appeared. Soon Verrault began to hear stories of what went on in his house while he was away. Neighbors told him of young men calling and a lot of women making visits. One day, in Oct., 1903, Verrault took his wife away. The house was turned over to Izella Brown. Mrs. Verrault, after a time, left her husband. He went to the Seventy third street house and made a scene. This led to a horsewhipping. Verrault was going to a boarding house on Eighty-second street, near Amster dam avenue, the evening of Jan. 13, when Gregory Allen, a sculptor, who once associated with Gutzoen Borg lum, stopped him. Allen had visited the Seventy-third street resilience many times while Verrault was there. Taking Verrault by the arm, Allen started to tell him how sorry his wife was about this misunderstanding. Verrault felt sad and had about made up his mind to go back to his wife, when a young man, who Verrault says was Joseph Mason, a brother of Izella Brown, jumped upon him. While Mason and Allen held Verrault, his wife, Izella Brown and two more wo men rushed up with horsewhips. Ver rault fought under the rain of blows until he escaped. After that Verrault lost all interest in his wife and did not see her again. He says she got about $5,000 from the Metropolitan Street railway about two years ago by contending that she had been crushed between a car and an "L" pillar. Verrault added that the accident never happened and that the Company Was "Easy." She also' got from H. D. Chaflin & Co. $15,000 worth ot rich tapestries, he said, and got the better of other tores. Verrault regarded Izella Brown as the leader in the matrimonial schemes of the "widow" clique. Izella Brown has two sisters besides her daughter in her influence, he said, and they have all helped in her plot. Izella Brown comes from New Glas gow, Nova Scotia, and, according to Verrault, has been all over the coun try making money out of men with susceptible hearts and bank accounts. Mr. Verrault has long contemplated a divorce, but has hesitated because of religious scruples. Telephone at Auction* Trenton, N. J., Aug. 15.—Fhe entire rights of the Inter-State Telephone Co. of Trenton were put up for sale at public auction here today. The sale includes all the lines, both telephone and telegraph, telephone exchanges, electric appliances, rights of way, cor porate rights, franchises, stocks and bonds and all other real and personal property of the company.

The great live stock amphitheater which will be opened and dedicated on Monday, Sept. 3, the opening day of the fair, stands for diversified agricul ture interests in the northwest and shows the importance of the live stock industry as a factor in the agricultural life in this region. It is the finest and largest live stock amphitheatre of all the buildings in the country devoted te A,— p5»if J' •fr: Thq latter fact is emphasized too in the sale of shorthorn cattle during the fair. A large proportion of the ani mals to be offered for sale are from Minnesota farms—and the others from farms in Iowa, Wisconsin and the Da kotas not far away. James J. Hill a life long patron of husbandry and especially of live stock breeding, is to make an address of dedication at 11 o'clock on Monday, opening day. Mr. Hill is always an PROBLEM FOR WAHPETON. Water Question Raised Again in All Its Troublesome Aspects. Wahpeton, N. D., Aug. 15.—The question of obtaining an adequate supply of pure water is again occu pying the attention of the city coun cil. The city well doesn't give suffi cient water for the city's needs, and the council is undecided whether to sink another shallow well or to try S n O W E W I N N I N Y A A N A I Y E U I A N FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUGUST 15, 1906. Dan Patch and Crcsccus to Go at the Minnesota Fair tm 1 to its uses. It means in a way that Minnesota is going to be one of the greatest live stock states in the union. It means too that the work of the Min nesota state fair of past years has borne fruit—that the state is already, one of the leaders in the breeding of fine cattle. interesting speaker and on this occa sion is likely to outdo himself as the time and occasion will be of very great personal interest to him. Late reports from the fair grounds show that the fair will be larger than ever in all the matters of exhibits, an imals, etc. In the farm machinery division ev ery foot of space is taken—this means the largest farm implement and mach inery exhibit ever made at any time or place. The opening of the new live stock amphitheatre naturally attracts alarge showing of animals. There will be lie*~"'P k* ""Xi "SW:. 'Aim*'.' 'TVA.i ,, i -v.' three great auction sales of pure bred stock. Swine will require extra room although the great swine exhi bition building is the largest in the world. On the amusement side the fair will be exceptionally strong. Programmes before the grand stand will be given both afternoon and evening high class racing being a prominent feature with clean and novel vaudeville, specialties, balloon ascensions, etc., as prominent features. A six days' ladies relay rid ing race will be one of the popular events. "Moscow" will be burned in pyrotechnics each evening. On Monday Dan Patch and Crece us will go against their own world's records—an event of intense and en tirely unusual interest. for a deep flow. In either ease some wax to provide funds must be devised, as the city can float no more bonds for water purposes. The government Indian school will not be opened until the water question is settled, and im mediate action must be taken. About a year ago the Northern Pa cific and Milwaukee railroads notified the city that the well water was not adapted to their purposes because it contained certain salts which af fected their boilers. They asked that permission be granted them to lay pri vate mains to the river and this was given them. They have since laid their mains and will soon get water direct from the river instead of from the city's supply. It was thought that when the railroad, mains were laid the well would supply the city's needs, but recent investigations disclose the fact that the well will not supply the city even when the railroads are gat ing their water direct from the river. The government Indian school con tracted for well water from the city about a year ago and the Indian de partment has notified the council that the school will not be opened until pure well water is furnished. Fate of Old Ironsidep. Washington, Aug. 15.—The naval constructors are much interested in seeking the old plans and other infor mation relating to the frigate Consti tution, which is to be restored at the Boston Navy yard to a condition and appearance as nearly resembling the ship as first planned as possible. The original plans long ago disappeared. They were probably destroyed by much handling, as was often the case with such papers. The first copy is still in existence, and is believed to be authentic, although th^re was no such Lhing as tracing in those early times. These plans were found some years ago in a library in Philadelphia, and delivered to the bureau of construction and repair. They had evidently been handed around from one to another person as of no special value, even in a historic way. The officers of today say it probably never occurred to the persons who possessed the plans that (here would ever be any use for them in a construction way. The only in formation now missing is concerning (he figurehead of the ship. Upon that point opinions differ, some of the offi cers holding that the ship carried merely a scroll, and others, that it was an elaborate design. There will be conscientious care taken to restore the old Constitution as she was in her prime. New Corporations. Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 15.—State Bank of Warwick, N. D. capital $10, 000.

What Would You Do? e Paris, Aug. 15.—A question ad- $ dressed by the "Gaulois" to Its readers: "What would you do S first If you suddenly became pos- S sessed of the wealth of a Rocke feller?" has elicited a shoal of an swers showing that the majority $ of the readers have taken the $ matter in a frivolous spirit. Some replies, however, are serloui, and $ a few pathetic. Here are some of them culled at random: "I would buy horses and car riages so as to avoid being an noyed by overcharging cab driv ers." "I would give rich rewards to cabinet ministers who remained honest and poor after the expira tion of their term of office." A sympathetic soul writes: "1 would offer a large prize to any $ man who succeeded in curing Mr. Rockefeller's indigestion." Cupidity Is illustrated by the an swer: "I would not spend the $ money, but amass more millions." Finally, a true Parisian propos rs to enable all men over 50 who have never been able to afford the pleasures of the boulevard cafes 8 to spend their day*—ill the cafe $ of their choice. -"-r.

While Asleep His Soul Went 141,000, 000 Miles to Mar»-~Describes the Natives, Giants and Pigmies, With Marvelous Bodily Formations. .Syracuse, N. y., Aug. lS.-^-8acIcvtt!e G. Leyson, president of the Society for Psychical Research, says he recently paid a visit to Mars. Although the distance is 141,000,000 miles, his spirit went there and back in forty minutes, while his body lay in his residence. In describing his visit, he said: "When I approached Mars, it look ed like a big globe of fire, and it seem •d as if I were about to plunge into a molten mass. It was surrounded by blood red clouds, mixed with others of greenish hue. 1 here are two tribes of people on Mars one so large I only came up to their knees and the other so small that they only came to my knees. None wore clothing. All were cover ed with hair. The larger species had huge ears, a nose like a lion, and only one eye, In the middle of the forehead. Their lungs do not move up and down in breathing, but expand crosswise. The little men lived in holes in the ground or rocks. The larger ones had houses made of rocks. The little ones had web feet and slipped over a moss like substance as though skating. They could walk up perpendicular walls like flies. "The small ones have two eyes, one in each temple. They had no nose, but there was a hole In each cheek. "The trees looked as if made of rub ber. I saw none decayed. There was a substance which looked like snow, but which was not cold and was easy to walk on. "Down In a deep chasm I saw men working with some sort of machines which were guiding lights across transparent rocks. The rays seemed to be reflected clear to the atmos phere cf the earth." f»UP ESCAPED. Collie Doc Had a Close Call Frwn an Operation. Butler, 8. D., Aug. 15.—Miss Pearl Richardson, the local tetephonr op erator, has recovered her diamond studded locket which her pet collie was supposed to have swallowed. The recovery of the locket bordered some what upon the melodramatic. Miss Richardson was extremely fond of her pet and could not make up her mind to sacrifice him even for the sake of recovering the locket, which, aside from its intrinsic value, was a treasured keepsake of a former ad mirer. The locket was worn by Miss Richardson at the end of a long, slen der gold chain. In swinging it back ward and forward, the dog in playful mood had snapped at it, and before Miss Richardson could regain posses sion of It, it had disappeared, pre sumably down the pup's gullet. After trying various means for Its recovery, friends of Miss Richardson advised that the dog be killed in order that the bit of jewelry might be re covered. She refused at first to enter tain this idea, but later a young man who is an undergraduate at a medical college at Chicago, and who is spend ing his vacation here, learned of her predicament and offered to perform a surgical operation for the recovery of the locket. He assured Miss Richard son that the eperation would be suc cessful, but refused to say positively that the puppy would live. After much persuasion, Miss Richardson agreed to permit the proposed attempt to recover the jewel. The embryo surgeon secured the dog and made an Improvised operating room in one corner of the telephone room. He had the pup strapped to the operating table and was holding a cone of chloroform to his nose, pre paratory to cutting into him when Miss Richardson burst into the room and stopped the proceedings by hold ing aloft the missing locket. A scrub woman had found It in a dark corner of the room wher it had evidently roiled during the struggle Miss Rich ardson had had with the puppy. The latter had not swallowed it at all. Mifts Richardson and the pup are overjoyed, but the embryo surgeon thinks that the recovery of the jewel might have been postponed! half an hour. at leafet QRAB8 NOSE SAVE8 LIFE. Boy Clings to Bull's Nostril* to Pre* vent Being Crushed. Wahpeton, N. D„ Aug. 15.—The 1$ year-old son of Joe Ingie was almost hunted to death by a savage bull which attacked him while he was crossing the pasture. The boy was knocked down, bunted and pitched about and would have been killed had not a younger brother attacked the animal with a pitchfork. When the younger boy attacked the bull his brother was on the ground, but had hla lingers locked firmly in the bull's nostrils. The enraged ani mal was tearing about the field, dragging the plucky boy with it. His seizure of the bull's nostrils probably saved his life, though the timely ap pearance of his brother with the pitch fork finally caused the animal to de sist and run away. The boy was taken to the Abercrom ble hospital where it was found that several ribs had been broken his chest badly pounded and he was otherwise terribly injured. The bull had been dehorned or the boy might have been gored to de*tfe.
