H'hus t^vo triumphs already stahd to tfoe credit tf the descendent of Char lotte Corday—victories which assure htm his home and his personal liberty, but it is the forthcoming or third legal duel with the bulk of his fortune as the prize-, the outcome of which, he awaits with all the tension of a Monte Cristo, ready to cry, "The last one— three." For, be it exp'lilned, the cur rent proceedings, although their locale is in the one-time home of Thomas Jefferson in the uplands of Virginia, have as an abject the establishment of Chanler's sanity in New York state.

After proceedings charged to have been high handed and certainly sensational, he was thrown into Bloomingdaie insane asylum if. the spring- of 1897, and UieVe he re mained until four years later, when he managed to make his escape and re turned to Virginia, where he was known and where he had no difficulty in demonstrating his sanity to the sat isfaction of the courts. Evifer since his escape Chanler has been fighting at long range tV estab lish his sanity in the Empire state. For two reasons this plucky fight for freedom has been carried on in historic Albemarle county, Virginia, where the present hearings are to take place be fore the commissioner of the United States federal court. In the first place Chanler has not dared set foot in New York state on pain of being seized as a lunatic and hurried back to the mad house from which he escaped after so much effort. Secondly, though by right a millionaire, he is in effect penniless insofar as his New York status is con cerned, for with his imprisonmnent in Bloomingdale his entire possessions in New York, valued at $4,500,000 were turned over to a "guardian," in whose possession they have been since. Thus denied the use of his wealth Chanoler has at all times been compelled to wage his fight with some eye to ex pense. Mysterious Disappearance of Girl With Remarkable Career Stirs England ,T«n. •.—The mysterious "dfeappearance and the remarkable ca £«er of Miss Violet Gordon Charles wprth a^e furnishing the English pub with a sensation equal to that of the Steinheil case in Paris. Miss CfyarleBworth, an attractive spinster of 25, who lived with her parents in Be dera street, Asapth, Wales, has been Imported killed while motoring in the direction of"" Pfcntokenwat\ vVth her sister and a chaffeur on Saturday. The sister and the chaffeur aver that the motor came into collision with the re taining wall of a road along the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and that Miss Charlesworth was thrown over the wall into the sea. The sister and chauffeur gave the foregoing account to the local authorities and since then the members of the family have de cllned to see inquiriers to give details. Thos6 who have examined the scene of tse supposed tragedy do not consid er it possible that'the body could have been washed away. A woman's hat was found upon the rocks, but there was n-o indication of a body having been thrown oyer the cliff. Miss Charlesworth's picturesque ca reer suggests that of Madame Hum bert. She said that she was heiress of a General Gordon, her godfather, who left her $744,000, which was to be paid over to her on her twenty-fifth birth day, Jan. IS, with accumulated inter est, making the whole amount $2,500, 000. Miss Charlesworth usually went by the name of Gordon and visited London frequently alone. She oper ated heavily upon the London stock exchange and according to The Eve ning News ?wei one broker $50,000, She took a large country place Inverness last summer, which wa.* .sumptuously furnished, the wails be ing draped with the Gordon plai She had four motor cars. The story of her death is generally disbelieved, although her parents offered a reward for the recovery of the bddy. The disapearance and the family's secrecy are causing endtess speculation.

Lew is, lower left Samuel Donnelly, low*r right. Men baek of the National Free Employment Bureau. i mi Washington, Jan. 9.—-Qscar Straps of the department of commerce arid labor has come forward with another proposition quite as.muph of an inno vation as many others which he has inaugurated and carried to success. His latest idea is to have a national free employment bureau, open to every one from coast to coast. He has tak en the matter up with Thomas Lewis of the labor organization Samuel Donnelly, of the government printing office ^Ibert H. Gray of steel fame, and others, and all are carefully and systematically investigating the field to see if the scheme is a feasible one. No steps have been taken as yet to wards completion of thifc economic problem. Mr. Straus himself is very optimistic about it and says that it is entirely practical. In talking with him today he designated it as one of the most important subjects. before the people. It hints at the root ot the unnecessary unemployed. It deals with the men who want to work and who are out of jobs in certain locali ties, while other localities, perhape 'a- V thousands of miles away, desire just such men. Ccntinuing, h? said: "Take for example the case of the tinner in New York city who is out ot a job. He walks the streets and finds there are other tinners who are una ble to find employment. At the pres ent time these men are not sufficient ly informed to know where the demand for their line of work is, and yet as a matter of fact 1,000 tinners may be needed In Seattle to work on the buildings of the Alaska-Yukon-Alaska exposition, while four or five hundred metal workers are needed In Chicago, St. Louis and other cities of the mid dle west. "Three thousand men fire wanted hi the fruit belt of California ajid yet this man In New York who 'wants work and Is competent is unable to find it." Another" part of Secretary Straus' scheme is to furnish transportation at a minimum rate, to be deducted from the employe's first week's wages. He expects to be able to transport a man from New York to Seattle for $1.2.50 Peerless, 1909, $4,300 to $6,000 Glide, 1909 $2,000 to $2,500 MWPWI Qudmers-Detroit "30" jSm.fr if St-1. and to take this out of the man's, first i week's pay. Messrs. Powder and Fife of the Ira migration, service Are said to be actively backing Secretary dtrfius In this scheme. HIGH SCHOOL NOTES. Irene Carpenter, Ina Lowry and Vaughn Miller, of Macalester college, were visitors Monday. From time to time appear calls for bountry teachers. Last year six or seven graduates proved to be success ful teachers, and just as good a Chance s presented to the graduates thki yw s vat last year. Homer Macnamara, lately of Lisbon, as enrolled in the senior class. It is to be regretted in a way that he grad ates this year, as, having played u good game at center on the Lisbon football team, he would streugUMr next year's eleven. The mandolin club was entertained at the home of Will Keye last Thurs day evening when they "listened for the whistles." El ma Faust from the MlBiwipaHn South Side High school, has entered the freshman class. A committee from both high schoo literary societies has been arranging for a Lincoln programme to be given nest month. There is some question at present a* to the choosing of a debating team for this year. There are now in the office three challenges for debates, from De troit, Barnesville and Valley City. Thrilling football experiences hav* been enjoyed with each of these towns and they have been anxious to com pete with Fargo high ever since two of the challenges were accepted Fri day, and teams chosen, one from the Kent society and one from the Phos terlan. The Kents will go to Valley City, the Phosterians to Barnesville. Detroit will probably come here sad debate an ali-school team. ', Francis Lewis was ill the last Fri day of school, but is now back again. A joint programme has been arrang ed for by the two committees chosen, and Lincoln's birthday, Feb. 12, will be fittingly observed. The time of the programme will be determined later. Some G. A. man will be asked 'o speak on Lincoln and several patriotic songs and recitations will be rendered. Will Magill will give an oration on Lincoln. This will be a, very good pro gramme, as both societies are working hard in its preparation. The manual training boys are mak ing a bookcase for Miss Cresap's room. R. C. Hamilton will speak to boys next Sunday on Insurance. This is one of a series of life work talks which the Y. M. C. A. is offering.
