MAKE S A FIN Life Size Portrait of Her Hus band Adorns Parlor of An other Woman's Home. TURNEDTO WALLAFTER CROO STON WOMAN'S VISIT. Clubs Have Been Trump in Game of Hearts With Mr. and Mrs. Fred Stob. Mrs. Fred Stob, who was at the Markham hotel this morning and says that for the brief space of a year she has been the legally wedded wife of Fred 0. Stob, who until a short time ago was employed as a boilermaker in the Great Northern round house at Crookston, made an interesting discovery yesterday. It was nothing less than the portrait of her husband adorning the parlor of a woman who lives a short dis tance from this city, who was in timate with Stob, before he knew h's wife and who Mrs. Stob does not hesitate to say did not allow the ties of sacred matrimony to keep her from holding him in much higher regard and intimacy than is meet under the circum stances. Mrs. Stob is a handsome woman of perhaps twenty-eight years, who says she formerly re sided at Springfield, Illinois, where she met Stob about a year ago and where the two were mar ried. The couple have never got ten on well together and if every thing Mrs. Stob says is true she has been a much abused woman. A short time ago she came to Crookston to live with her hus band, but he taunted her with stories of his affection for other women and made her life so un bearable that she finally left him. The couple had been stopping at the Monterey hotel in Crookston and after they had lived apart for a few days Stob went back to his wife and attempted to ar range an amicable adjustment of of the differences existing be tween them. He told her that if she didn't want to live with him he had a home in Bernidji that he might always call his own and that the caresses of a woman here who is the wife of another where always his when he so de sired. Then there were harsh words all around, and Stob gave his wife a beating on the street so severe that she fell uncon scious into the arms of another woman. He then made his es cape. He went to the round house, told the night foreman that he had whipped his wife and that he had decided to get out of town. Since that time he has not been seen. After the trouble Mrs. Stob gat her down to the apartments the pair had formerly occupied and then and there began an in vestigation of the Stob effects that revealed all sorts of things not the least of which were a number of letters signed by a married woman from this city. They were in the billing, cooing tone of a midsummer night, the knee deep in June sort that are not calculated to be read by a man's wife under any circum stances. Mrs. Stob decided that she would come to this city and perhaps find her husband here and that she would prosecute both him and the woman who had written him the letters. Yesterday afternoon she went One-Half Off on MILLINERY. 2.00 Hats now at $ i.oo 3.50 Hats now at 1.75 4.SO Hate now at a7 7.50 Hats now at 3-75 10.00 Hats now at 5-oo 15.00 Hats now at 7-5 20.00 Hats now at 10.00 We Treat You Right and Save You Money thegard to the home of the woman, was cordially received ushered into the parlor, but it took her some time to recover herself when she saw her hus band's picture hanging on the waif between two mottos which bore the legands "God Bless Our Home" and "Home Sweet Home." Then she opened up on the woman. A complete confes sion followed and Mrs. Stob learned a lot of things that her husband had never told her even in the heighth of his passion. She states that so far as her re for him is concerned "the light of other days has faded and all their glories past," and if the police department of this city will only bring her -recalcitrant spouse to justice, she will fur nish enough good hot stuff to keep the public reading with interest for some time. She demanded that the picture be taken down from the wall and returned to her and this was done. She will remain in this city for some time looking after the matter and there is a proba bility that there will be some thing doing all around before very long.

SEVERSON'S 3ESESSHZI NEXT DOOR TO FIRST NATIONAL BANK aea^BasEES ^THINKS DUNN'S TH E MA N Mayor Hitchcock of Crooks ton Talks of Politics in Northern Minn. HAS JUST RETURNED FRO AN EXTENDED TRIP. Says Dunn's Great Record as State Auditor Makes Him a Favorite. Mayor CharJes A. Hitchcock of Crookston was in the city last evening from Blackduck. Mr. Hitchcock has just completed a long trip through Polk, Clear water and Beltrami counties, where he has come in touch with all classes and conditions of peo ple. Mr. Hitchcock is not one of those who believe in hiding 'their political opinions under a bushel and he frankly declares that northern Minnesota is for Dunn for governor. "In our own county of Polk," said Mr. Hitchcock, "there will practically be no opposition to Dunn. I have during the past two months traveled through al most every one of the fifty-nine townships of the county and the sentiment for the nomination of Dunn is overwhelming. "In Clearwater and Beltrami counties I find the homesteaders warm friends of the man from Princeton. When State Auditor Dunn at the various state land sales frowned down all attempts, of which there were many, to buy up the settlers' homesteads.on technicalities he made the set tlers of northern Minnesota his friends forever. "The people of this section of the state too appreciate very thoroughly Dunn's great work as state auditor and there seems to be a very general sentiment that a man who so thoroughly knows the state and who has demon strated his zeal for the interests of the people as against the great corporations wTould be a pretty good man for governor. Eddy is not regarded as a factor in the contest. I found some Collins men but they were only occasion al and if the choice of a governor were up to the people in primar ies at this time there can be no question that Dunn would poll four-fifths of the vote of northern Minnesota."

RUTING HAD RELATIVES Itf GER MAN ELIGIBLE AS HEIRS. American Consul at Berlin Will Undertake to Find Them at Once. Through the publication of a story in the Pioneer a short time ago regarding the estate of Julius Ruting, who formerly re sided near Blackduck and left an estate valued at $&,0O0 without heirs apparant friends of Rat ing's have been discovered and the probabilities are that in a short time his only living rel atives, peasant people in Alsace. Germany, will learn that they have fallen heir to enough money to fix them all comfortable in the land of stout King William. Judge of Probate Clark has re ceived a letter from a friend of Ruting'sin St. Paul, who learned of the circumstances through the published accounts and who throws much light on the early life of Ruting. The friend is represented by a St. Paul attor ney. He knew Ruting and his relatives when the former was a young man in Germany many years ago and served in the Ger man army with him. He has notified the court where the rel atives of Ruting may be avail able and the matter will be placed in the hands of the Amer ican consul to the German court through the German consul of this country. An investigation will result which will no doubt locate the heirs if any of them are still living. The Largest Clothing House in Bemidji $32?
