Last ol (\iscs Against Famous rrisoner Kesults in (.Jiving Freedom THREE TIMES BEFORE COURT Last Trial Was on Charge of Arson in Burning Webster City Felt Shoe Factory Jury Out Only a Few Hours—State Failed to Make Good Case. 'V Special to Times-Republican. Clarion, March 21—George Mackown, one of the most famous prisoners ever tried in the courts of Iowa, is now a free man. His 'liberty was placed in jeopardy threo times within the past two years, and he now has secured ac quittal and therefore legal exoneration on every charge against him. The trial in the district court here during the past week is the second under tije Indictment charging arson, the state attempting to show that he set fire to the $100,000 felt shoe fac tory at Webster City for the purpose of covering up the embezzlement of a large sum of company funds. The case was closed at 5 o'clock last evening, after arguments lasting a day and a half. Judge Wright at once in structed the Jury, the instructions be ing quite lengthy, but considered fair to both sides. The jury retired, and at 10 o'clock last night agreed upon a verdict of not guilty. On the first bal lot the jury stood 11 to 1 in favor of a verdict for defendant, and it re quired little time to bring the twelfth juror Into line with the idea of the ma jority. The Several Trials. Mackown, who was manager of the felt shoe factory up to within a short time before the plant was completely destroyed by lire, and who left Web ster City immediately afterward, was arrested after several months and ta ken to Webster City, where he was in dicted for both embezzlement and ar son. The plant was owned by local capitalists of Webster City, who lost heavily thru the mismanagement of the concern and thru the following loss by tire. While Mackown was in Webster City he lived high and was believed to be spending more money than Ills salary would justify. This directed suspicion towards him. He was first tried on the arson charge at Webster City, the jury re turning a verdict of guilty. The ver dict was set aside by the court. When the case on the embezzlement charge was begun, Mackown secured a change of venue to Fort Dodge, on the plea that the people of Hamilton county were prejudiced. This trial resulted in acquittal, and left the state with out a motive on the arson charge. The second trial on this charge was taken to Wright county, and this time re sulted in the acquittal of defendant. Mackown, who has been in jail all this time, was released today. He has not as yet announced his plans for the future. The case of the state on the arson charge was lamentably weak after Mackown secured a verdict of acquital upon the embezzlement charge, which crime constituted the state's chief mo tive for arson. Tlie verdict was not at all unexpected. The case just finished completes the gamut of proceedings against this famous prisoner, he having undergone the strain of the three trials in five months.

Special to Times-Republican. Hampton, March 21.—Another case of what appears to be abandonment of wife and family, Is furnished by the disappearance of Herman Mauch, who has not been seen here, it is asserted, since March 12. On the above mentioned day he drew from the bank his savings of $4,000, which is pretty good evidence that he quit the town for good. Mr. Mauch is a cigarmaker by trade, and with the exception of a couple of years In which he was engaged in the drug business, he has been in the employ of Frank Kratochlvil, and was one of the most trusted and skilled workmen. Mr. Mauch's domestic relations be came somewhat strained during the time he was In the drug business. About a year ago his wife made ap plication for a divorce. Reconciliation, however, followed, and to all outward appearances they were living happily together. Aside from the divorce pro ceedings, which may or may not have anything to do with his mysterious conduct, other possible cause for his leaving Is unknown. Mr. Mauch's wife Is a sister of the late John Htnken. The Mauch's have two boys, aged about 14 and 16 years. HAMPTON NEWS. High School Has Joined Boone Valley Oratorical Association.

PINKHAM Nature and a woman's work com bined have produced the grandest remedy for woman's ills that the world has ever known. In the good old-fashioned days of our grandmothers they relied upon the roots and herbs of the field to cure disease and mitigate suffering. The Indians on our Western Plains to-day can produce roots and herbs for every ailment, and cure diseases that baffle the most skilled physicians who have spent years in the study of drugs. From the roots and herbs of the field Lydia E. Pinkham more than thirty years ago gave to the women of the world a remedy for their pe culiar ills, more potent and effica cious than any combination of drugs. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is now recognized as the standard remedy for woman's ills. Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 615 N.C. St.. Louisiana, Mo., writes: Complete restoration to health means so much to me that for the sake of other suffering women I am willing to make my troubles public. "For twelve years I had been suffer ing with the worst forms of female ills. During that time I had eleven differeni physicians without help. No tongue can tell what I suffered, and at times could hardly walk. About two years ago I wrote Mrs. Pinkham for advice. I followed it, and can truly say that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound and Mrs. Pinkham advice re stored health and strength. It it worth mountains of gold to suffering women." What Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound did for Mrs. Muft it will do for other suffering women on every fIBSS 25e -*z-m Golds on the Chest are the forerunners of consumption.
