Mr. and Mrs. Thursfon, Hag-
erstown, Wrest Fortune
From Gold Fields.
HAGKRSTOWN, Ind., Nov. 21. T.
I Thurston and wife, having amassed
a fortune in the gold fields of Alaska,
have returned to visit relatives and to
renew old home scenes. T. L. Thurs
ton Is a son of Dr. E. II. Thurston, ot
The Thurstons landed in Fairbanks,
Alaska, on July 15. 1905, practically
penniless. Fairbanks was two years
old, with a population of three thous
and, and being one of the chief centers
of attraction of the Alaska gold fields,
wae growing at a rapid rate. Kvery
line of business was represented, and
money, figuratively speaking, grew on
business and trees.
Thurston got a job at the docks
checking freight at $1 an hour, that
being the wages paid both common
and skilled labor. Thurston took ad
vantage of the long summer days that
prevail In Alaska, and worked from
twelve to eighteen hours a day, which
was not unusual for the new and en
Obtains Place In Bank.
Thornton was an expert accountant.
He applied the Fairbanks Banking
Company and was made head book
keeper of the only bank in the town
at that time at $200 a month. Every
building was made of logs, and the
bank was a 20x30 log structure.
Mrs. Thurston wished to aid her
hatband. Looking about the "City of
Logs" she saw above a door the sign
"The Fairbanks Daily News," and en
tered the room just as the power press
was set In motion to run off the dally
Issue, a six-column folio. She asked
for a place as society editor. This
was a need at the paper, and she was
employed, for Fairbanks' society even
then had Its pink teas, receptions,
church fairs, etc The salary was good
and she immediately began getting
copy for the pyt day's issue. The re
sult of her Work was a big Increase of
subscribers, notwithstanding the sub
scription price was 25 cents the single
Thurston began sitting gold claims,
some of which, now being exploited,
give such evidence of riches that the
repeated offer of $100,000. for a prom
ising claim has not been: considered.
When prospectors retarded to Fair
banks with reports of "big pay" on
Flat creek, the Thurstons joined the
stampede. Out from DawsonjlKome
and Fairbanks went large numbers,
and on May 4. 1909, the gold seekers
camped on tho Iditarod. five hundred
miles southeast of Fairbanks. A city
of tents, to which they gave the name
of the river, rose in a day and shelt
ered five thousand people. In two
months Iditarod was a full-fledged city
and her citizens demonstrated their
loyalty by a rousing celebration on
the Fourth of July.
At Iditarod, as at Fairbanks, the
Thurstons staked gold claims. Mrs.
Thurston, clad in moccasins, hood and
coat, of reindeer fur, was her hus
band's companion on many long and
perilous tramps. They report great
yields ot gold. $3,500,000 being sent
out from Iditarod last summer, with
prospects of that amount being dou
bled the coming summer.
Luck Follows Them.
Almost from the time of their land
ing In Alaska luck followed the Thurs
tons. A gold nugget outlining the form
of the letter T, which Mrs. Thurston
found on a visit to- a placer mine soon
iter landing at Fairbanks, she de
clares is their talisman. Thi9 nugget
ha wean attached to a chain and so
strong is her faith In its magical in
fluence that money will not tempt her
to part with It.
Thurston is postmaster of the Idita
rod office and Mrs. Thurston is his
deputy. Mall is received once a week.
During the winter season the mail is
tsfren in by dog teams, which make
the trip from Fairbanks, a distance of.
five hundred miles, in eight days. The
amount of mail carried by each team
is from five hundred to one thousand
pounds. Miners will tramp three hun
dred miles to Iditarod, through snow
and storm for their mail.

How Grandmother Harlan Now
Attends the Yearly Meeting
The going of Grandmother Harlan
to the Richmond yearly meeting in the
year 1911 is told by William Bayard
Hale, the well known writer and a for
mer Richmond man, in his reminiscent
sketch of "The Old National Road" in
the December "Century." The article
will be read with particular interest
by people living in Richmond and this
section of the state. In part it is as
A sudden light burst out at the top
of Linden hill, dazzling, fiercely pow
erful, the seurch light of something
swooping down the road. A momen
tary terror seized me. Could it be
possible that Grandmother Harlan
came to yearly meeting on the trol
ley? I dismissed the thought as one
unworthy of her gray silk dress and
bonnet, her ample leisure and her
love of quiet. No, she was behind
equally staid successors of the good
mares, of yore, tucked snugly in the
back seat, with a paper of pepper- j
mints in her pocket. She had de- i
layed starting to-day until the sun was I
well up and the mists had lifted from
the valleys say, at 10 o'clock that
morning and they were driving the
old lady slowly and comfortably.
Grandmother Harlan in a trolley car?,
Oh. not i
The thing with the fierce light came
whooping down, but not past. As it
reached the gate it hesitated, it turned,
and, gathering speed again, drew swift
ly up to the door a panting, six-cylinder
motor car, bringing Grandmother
Harlan in huge automobile coat and
She explained calmly as she stepped
out, her poke-bonnet in her hand:
Thee knows it was so warm and
dusty we did not start till near sun
down. Eli thought we could do it
nicely in two hours; it is only seventy

miles. I should like to have been in
time to attend Fourth-day evening
evening meeting. And so we should
have been, the Lord willing, but as we
went through Bellbrook does thee
mind the place, William? Thy mother
knew it well when she was a little
girl a spark-plug burned out, and the
cylinders back-fired. I fear Eli was
sore beset, for his words were not
those of soberness as he tried the cyl
inders. I said to him, 'Eli, let thy com
munication be, 'Yea, yea! nay nay."
But he answered, 'Mother, thee knows
the Scriptures, but thee knows noth
ing about a buzz- box.' "
"But grandmother," I gasped as
soon as I could fairly comprehend the
thing, "isn't it unusual for Friends to
come to meeting in automobiles?
Horses were good enough in the old
"William," said Grandmother Har
lan, turning on me her gentle eye, and
proffering a peppermint, "thee remem
bers that the Good Book says, 'A
horse is a vain thing for safety.' "
And the amazing lady, who had
made her first journeys to Yearly
Meeting in the saddle, and who had
waited nearly a century to incorpo
rate this particular Scripture into her
body of doctrine, pressed it home upon
me with the look and tone of one ut
tering a precious saving truth.
"Besides," continued Grandmother
Harlan, laying her small hand upon
the tonneau of the vibrating monster
just as, without doubt, standing on
the upping-block at this very spot
seventy years ago she had laid it on
the neck of the animal that had
brought her over "besides," said
Grandmother Harlan, with a last pat
for the automobile, "thee knows,
William, that no vehicle is so well
adapted to the old National Road."
ON CHURCH DUTIES
An interesting talk regarding the du
ties of members of the general Chris
tian church featured the revival meet
ing held under the direction of the
Rev. H. D. Kennedy at the First M.
E. church last evening. The evange
list's subject for the occasiton was the
familiar thought of the "vine and
branches." During his talk he empha
sized the sad condition of mere mem
bership in the church as contrasted
with the vital relationship between
church members and Christ, or be
tween the "branches and vine," and
told the audience how they could bet
ter themselves by living a more thor
oughly Christian life.
The revival meetings are steadily
becoming a bigger feature in the re
ligious work of the city, and much in
terest is bein gshown. Rev. Kennedy
will conduct another service this even
ing. A special session is announced
for tomorrow evening, when Mrs. H.
D. Kennedy, wife of the evangelist,
will speak on the topic "Hope to Chris
tians." This meeting is planned as
one Of the principal features of the re
vival, and the leaders in the movement
are anticipating a large crowd.

The astonished guard who had him
handcuffed did not anticipate any
t.uch daring attempt and stood and

away, recovering his senses to late to
risk a shot. At once police in all
cities were notified and train men
were informed to be on the lookout for
Mansfield. He is expected to appear
either in Richmond or Dayton, but
most likely in the latter city.
Mansfield, according to a long dis
tance telephone call received by su
perintendent of police I. A. Gormon,
and a special delivery letter verifying
the telephone message, is a dangerous
man. He is one of the "lifers" who
escaped from the Ohio prison recently.
The local police are not informed
more fully as to his record and where
he was apprehended. His description
is: Age 33, five feet nine and half

a dagger tattooed on his left arm.
LITTLE CHILD HAD
A NARROW ESCAPE
Ignorant of the approach of a Fair
view street car, the three year old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Schweitzer, walked in front of the car
Monday and was saved from serious
injury only by prompt application of
the brakes by the motorman. The
youthful Miss Schweitzer was playing
j with her hat pulled down over her
ears, so she did not hear the car ap
proach. As she crossed the tracks the
motorman tried to stop the car in
stantly, but owing to the condition of
the brakes, it glided some distance be
fore halting, knocking the child down.
The conductor ran up and carried the
infant to her home, at the corner of
State and Sheridan streets, where it
was found the child had suffered a
severe scalp wound. The street car
men were not held liable for the mis
hap. ACCUSED MEN DENY

HOW GERMS SPREAD Siail DISEASE
Ecrema Psoriasis and other skin
troubles are caused by myriads of
germs at work in the skin. Unless
these germs are promptly destroyed
they rapidly multiply, gnawing their
way deep into the sensitive tissue.
This is what causes that awful itch,
and what seemed a mere rash may
grow worse and develop in to a loath
some and torturing skin disease with
its years of misery.
Don't take any chances'. Destroy the
germs at the beginning of the trouble
