little increase in the number of acres

pose of allowing the state chemists to
make an analysis of the contents of
the stomachs of the unfortunate men.
The murder theory, while not yet sub

to the charred condition of the bodies,
will not down, as there are certain
l'arts connected with this baffling case
which almost proclude anything else
but murder. For instance, one of the
Greeks had over $400 in a pocketbook
the night of his death and made the/
remark to his brother on a crowded
corner that he wanted to bank it in the
morning. Later, after the fire, a search
repealed the pocketbook under a coal
pile, empty.
Receipts and mail order stubs were
also found scattered on the ground
which had been in the pocketbook pre
