He criti cised severely the existing laws, which he believed lacking, especially *"1* -.t4 1 With the Twisted Cables, the Diamond Mesh, and the Barb on the bottom. Don't be deceived by the heavy appearance of heavy single strand fences. The strength is not so great as the twisted cable of the The Twisted Cables are the only means of over coming the contraction and expansion in wire fencing, caused by heat or cold. Single cable fences are cheaper to build, and for that reason many manufacturers try to overcome the con traction and expansion by means of crimps and curves in their single wire cables. Single wire will lose its elasticity in time, and when this is gone crimps and curves will have no effect, then the fence sags and loses its shape. Elwood Will Last a Life Time if properly erected.

Family Quarrel May Result in Solving the Westbrook Mystery. Des Moines, Aug. 21.—Albert Latham and William Dunberg were ar rested for the murder of Fritz West brook, July 7. The men were arrest ed on information furnished by Latham's wife, who had left her hus band and sued him for a divorce. La tham had a penitentiary record in this state. Dunberg is comparatively -un known here, except as a pal of La tham. The body of Westbrook will be exhumed in the Grinnell cemetery to secure the bullet that caused his death in order to compare its size with the revolvers of the two men. The Westbrook murder was commit ted the night of July 7, as Westbrook was returning to his home from a party at the home of Miss Eva Cas sidy. Westbrook was prominent in the Plymouth Congregational church, and the members of the church ap pointed a committee and raised a purse to search for the murderers. Westbrook lived one week and told of the murder, but could not identify the men. According to the story of Mrs. Latham the two men came home that night and the next morning read the story in the papers anxiously. Late last night a chief of detectives inquired of I^atham his address. La tham becoming suspicious slipped away to his home, where he awakened Dunberg and they were just emerging from the house when detectives, who were watching the place, arrested them.
