Bidwells
Muskeg Mich Dec 1A life of
sisterly devotion that has few equals
tn history was brought to a close by
the drain yesterday at the ape of 7S

of the notorious BIdwell Brothers who

Mrs Mutt who outlived her broth
ers died practically penniless al
though she once owned one of the fin
est farms in Muskegon county and
valuable property in New York state
All her property went toward pro

When Austin and George C BIdwell

the fight to win the liberty of her
kin and carried her cause Into the
White House and before the nobility
of England
She went everywhere raising funds
and made nine trips across the Atlan
tic She refused to look upon her
brothers as great criminals and con
sidered that their sentences to life
Imprisonment were miscarriages of
justice
Whoa at last she triumphed and
saw the last of the brothersAustin
Bidwoll leave old Newgate in 1SDC
the devoted sister returned to Mus
kegon and set about raising money to
pay off ue debts of her campaign
The brothers died in the west while
on a lecturing tour but she kept on
A book written by Austin BIdwell on
his experience was her chief asscL
She boasted that she paid buck every
penny borrowed in her long fight

smelled like fresh paint on canvas
scenery Others thought Its taint was
like paint with a quantity of aged
eggs added All agreed that It was
a compound to remember
