AGED MAN IS BEING HELD FOR MURDER Park Policeman in Moorhead, Minnesota, Is Arrested in Hansmann Death INDIC TME N T MA D E Moorhead, .Minn., Dec. 3. George Piper, 79, of 318 Tenth St. N. Moor head, park policeman, was arrested at 5:30 p. m. yesterday hy Sheriff Peter Malvey of Clay county on a charge of first degree murder just one hour after the county grand jury had indicted him in connection with the murder of Michael Hans lnann late in the evening of Sept. 10. last. The charge of murder placed against Piper is unbailablc and the defendant is being held in the Clay county jail. Hansmann was murdered on the porch of hi> home, 10120 Second Ave. >•. as he was returning from a meeting of the Woodmen lodge of which he was a member. Death re sulted from a charge of bird shot in the abdomen, Hansmann dying at St. Ansgur’s hospital about an hour following the shooting. . Although Hansmann cried out im mediately after he was shot and members of the family who were in the house at the time came to his aid, the murderer escaped in the dark. Threat Arouses Suspicion Suspicion was directed toward Piper tlue to several quarrels which he had with Hansmann over the pas turing of the latter's cows near Hole's park in Moorhead where Piper v.as policeman, County Attorney E. George Hammett, said last .eve ning. Hansmann had secured per mission from F. H. McCoy to pas ture his cows in that lot adjoining the McCoy residence which is the old county courthouse, and the park. The cows once ha I been staked too near the park with the result that they browsed in the park. Piper and Hansmann got into an argument during the progress of which the former is said to have threatened the murder victim’s life. County Attorney Hammett, intro duced this evidence to the grand jury as a probable motive for the murder. He also explained that it was possible for Piper who lives about a block and a half from the murder victim’s 'home to leave his own residence, sneak through back yards, cross Third Ave. N, which is badly lighted between Tenth and Eleventh streets, and approach the Hansmann residence without being detected. The escape, Mr. Hammett said, could have been made the same way. No Weapon Discovered Piper, according to Mr. Hammett, is said to have claimed at different times that he did and did not have a gun. The weapon with which the murder was committed was thought to have been a sawed off shotgun or a weapon without a choke bore, for, according to llansms/nn’s dying statement, the shot was fired from a distance of about VJ feet and the shot had spread little larger than an eight inch circle. Piper’s residence has not yet been searched and as yet no gun of any kind has been found in connection with the case, Mr. Hammett stated. Takes Arrest Calmly With a niece. Miss Abbie Piper. Piper has been living a secluded life and although he has lived in Moor head for the last four or five years few people knew him until he took charge of Holes park this past sum mer. He is 71) years of age and a native of Maine. It is thought that he came to Moorhead from lied Lake Palls, Minn. He was very quiet and calm in his cell in the Clay county jail Monday night, according to re ports. The night of the murder Piper was observed to go home about 8 p. m. and was seen no more that eve ning. He has made no statement concerning his actions to either Mr. Hammett or Sheriff Malvey, they said last night. No intimation has been made as to the nature of any other evidence that the authorities may have against the accused. May Be Tried Soon Mr. Hammett said last evening that a thorough investigation of the case would be begun immediately and it was possible that the case will be brought to trial at the pres ent term of district court.

Dressed in an armor made of heavy leather studded with 1.200 needle-sharp steel spikes, he invited attacks from wolf packs while armed only with a short doul.le bladed ax and a hunting knife. Al though handieapped by an exception ally open winter and an unusually large number of wild rabbits, which kept the wolves from suffering from hunger, he killed a number of the beasts with his ax. During a snow storm on S*eep Hock Lake, north of Atikokan, he was set upon by five timber wolves. He killed two of them and wounded a third. The wolves seized the hunters arms and legs in their jaws, but could not, dc him injury because of the protruding spikes of the armored suit, which is made of specially tanned thick cow hide that will turn water and will not harden from rain or snow. There also is a helmet, and heavy wire mask that can be raised to protect the lace. Four other indictment.* were re turned hy the grand jury yesterday. Two were charges against William Tulmudge of Wodena of a statutory nature, and the nature of the other two will not be announced until ar rests have been made.

Revival of femin ine interest in sealskins is reported by London furriers, who have exper ienced a heavy demand this fall for seal coats and jackets, many of them enlivened by collars of golden beaver or ermine. The heavy, dull brown sealskin coat beloved of the Victor ian era, however, is a thing of the past, for new methods of preparing and dyeing the fur have resulted in the p'roduction of pelts, far lighter in weight than even musquash, in rich, durable golden and dark browns that improve, rather than grow shab by with age. According to the London furriers, fur coats this,year will have comfort able loose sleeves, with huge gaunt let cuffs and big roll collars, prefer ably of beaver or ermine. An effort to revive the “muff” fashion has ap parently failed.

Non-Freezing Water Dish for the Poultry A nnn-frerz'ng water dish for the poultry is a necessity t.. late fall and winter, and it, is a very simple mat ter to make one. As shown in the drawing, a pit is dug. in the ground or poultry-house floor, to a depth suffi cient to accommodate the lamp it is intended to use, and lined with con crete, the concrete extending upward to a height of about 10 in. al>ove the ground. Through one wall, a pipe fit ted with two elbows and a long nipple is placed, while the opposite wall car ries a short pipe that merely extends outside, although it. may be fitted with an elbow with the outlet turned down. The outside elbows prevent dirt from being scratched info the pit. Over the opening is plana! a tight fitting wooden cover, in which a hole is cut to fit, the drinking pan snugly. The heating element is an old incu bator lamp. A very small flame will keep the water warm even in zero weather. Fresh air follows the long pipe to the bottom of the pit and the hot air and gases pass out of the short pipe. There is room enough cn the WATER *\ - jtAMPTr^- platform for a number of fowls, but. because of the height of the pan above Hit' floor, no litter can be tossed into the water. * * * CA worthless clock can be used in the siek room to indicate the next, time medicine is to be given by setting the hand at the proper position. RAILROAD EMPLOYES GET RAISE Minneapolis, Dec. 3.—Ten thous anil locomotive engineers and fire men on northwestern railroads will receive !j!l,250,000 in additional z:.- ges annually by a wage increase or der of the United States Railway Labor board, railroad operatives and brotherhood officials recently. The hoard increased wages of en gineers and firemen on 45 western roads 5 per cent. Railway officials said Hie 45 railroads probably in clude all on which the increased wage was not already effective. The majority of the eastern railroads, following the example of tin* New York Central, which made a sep arate agreement with its men, in creased wages of engineers and fire men. "We are gratified at the result,” O. E. Schoonmaker, general chair man of the Brotherhood of Locomo tive Engineers of the Great North ern, said. “It does not restore tin wage of 11)20, which we first asked for, but it does meet our demands a* modified later. , “The decision was made after hearing only one side of the case, that of the operators.” In 1020 engineers in passenger service were receiving a minimum of $5.05 a day; freight service. s(’>.lX and in yard service $0.40. In 1021, along with a general scaling down by the labor board, 48 cents was taken off the pay of the locomotive engineer in passenger service; 04 cents off of freight and 04 off of yard. The present increase, Mr. Schoonmaker said, adds 24 cents to passenger service; 30 cents to freight and 32 to yard. Although the increases are not reckoned on a percentage basis, they will amount to 5 per cent of the payroll, Mr. Schoonmaker said. The Soo line will pay out $150,000 more a year in wages, A. E. Wal lace. general manager, reported. The Omaha reported its increase in cost of operation as $1)0,000 a year.

An excellent method of do* ing thin is shown in the illustration. The end of the pipe is threaded and a floor flange with a hole drilled through ,PIPE FLANGE LEAD WEIGHT it. is screwed on; it is then an easy matter to attach the pulley to the flange. Another trouble frequently experi enced is that the lyidle breaks where it is tied to the rope or the rope itself breaks near this point, and.both aerial and rope then come down, making it necessary to ‘shin” the pole to thread the rype through the pulley again. To prevent this trouble a small piece of pipe? or other metal weight should be tied to the end of the rope, &# shown, so that the rope cannot slit* through the pulley but can be low?* cred and then tied to the bridle agaiou * * * Remedy for Overheating Bearings Persistent overheating of bearing* i hat are in constant duty may be over come by applying a paste of flour of sulphur mixed with lubricating oil.
