THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOUND
IN AN INSANE WOMAN'S ROOM
Altho she had complained that she
was poverty stricken, officers found
$3,412.00 in currency, gold and war
savings stamps in a bureau drawer
in the apartments of Mrs. John l'erli
chek, of this city, who was taken to
the insane asylum at Jamestown last
Mrs. Perlichek has been acting
strangely for a long time and was pre
viously given a hearing by the insan
ity board, but released because she
did not appear to be violent. How
ever, her condition grew worse stead
ily and it was decided better to send
jher to the insane asylum. She lived
very economically and always told her
friends that she had scarcely a penny.
However, after she was taken to
Jamestown, Judge Murray and others
searched her room in the Frank block
and in a bureau drawer found $2,100
in paper money, eight $20 gold pieces
sixteen $5 gold pieces one $10 gold
piece and a $2.50 gold piece besides
ten war savings stamp books worth
$100 each, a total of $3,412.00. This
money has been placed to the woman's
credit in a local bank and will be given
back to her, should her mental condi
tion warrant it.

complaint of the Nanpartisan league
that the three-column ballot being
printed for use in some counties is il
legal. and that a four-column ballot
should be used. At the outset Jus
tice Christianson raised the question
of his right to sit in the case.
"I am a candidate in this election,"
said the chief justice. "I do not wish
to shirk any responsibility—my busi
ness is to serve on this bench, but the
question may be raised in your minds
as to whether I am entitled to sit in
Mr. Lemke assured Justice Chris
tianson that he was quite willing for
the justice to participate in the case,
and also in another case before the
court in \yhieh an election matter is

the case from Lemke, also hastened to
remark that there was no objection
whatever to the chief justice sitting in

Another case, in which the right of
a person to file independently for the

on behalf of the league, that there
was no objection to Justice Christian
Justice Christianson was nominated

The New York Store never took advantage of the market
when it was climbing like many merchants did. We tried to
be fair, and we priced our merchandise as low as was con
sistent with good merchandising. And you will find we are
fair on a declining market. Whenever a commodity can be
bought for less money than we own ours, we are taking our
medicine, and making new prices on the goods we own to
conform to the new order of things.
