other stroke, which completely af
fected his right side. A physician
was called and every possible aid
rendered. This morning Mr. Harris,

He had everything to live for a lov

Cut Out of a Great Deal of
Trade by Loss of Journal.
The Indianapolis Journal's popular
ity is shown by one fact, namely, that
the profits of newsboys in central In

that matter, have fallen off consider
ably. The Journal was Hie fastest
selling morning paper in Indiana and
the Star's sales are not nearly so
large. Vic Mantell, the newsbov at
the Union Station here, is hunting a

Filed Against Baker the Former Rich

(Special to the Palladium.)
Elwood, Ind., June 11. A. J. Bak
er, who is now in jail here awaiting
his second trial, is having hard luck.
His former cheerfulness has aband
oned him, and his physical condition
as well as his mental one, is some
thing shocking. He is not expected
to live until his second trial.
The latest blow is the suit for $200
filed against Baker by his former
partner, Charles A. Diltz, in the su
perior . court yesterday.
Before Baker committed the crime
(or before the crime was committed),
he and Diltz conducted a meat mark
et here. Baker bought out his part
ner and had paid all but $200 at the j
time of his arrest. This is the second
case filed against Baker for fraud.
He is almost gone.
(Baker formerly lived in Richmond
and had many friends here.)

day to close up the deal as far as he
is concerned. All of the right of way

of land belonging to five farmers east
