The Brown Family and Their
Trouble With Poi
Cruel Flames Take Two
Lives in Wiscon
Ko One Has Seen the Mon
tana Train Robbers
An Unfortunate Jordan Baby
That Needed Maternal
Special to the Globe.
Mason City, 10., June IS.— H. E.
Brown, who was suspicioned by the
coroner's jury as the one guilty of pois
oning the Brown family, has engaged
counsel and will demand the grand'
to make a thorough examination. There
has been quite a revolt in public senti
ment within the last few days, many
now believing that the testimony given
by Mrs. Brown was only to hide her
Some carry their suspicions still
further, believing that the whole affair
was a put up job between Mrs. Brown
and the hired man, Carl Petersen, to
get rid of Mr. Brown. Mrs. Brown
makes the following statement:
"I know of no enemy we have. I have
no suspicion of any oue outside the fam
ily. 1 have several reasons for suspi
cfoning Mr. Brown. One is financial
difficulties, another a naturally sensi
tive and suspicious disposition, the
third is there had been several veiled,as
well as a few direct, threats made by
him. On the 2d day of March Henry,
my boy, fell through the ice. He and
Carl went down to the creek to help him
out. 1 remained at the house to have a
good fire and dry clothes ready to change
when they got back. When they got to
the house Hiram said:
lie hoped to God I'd get into the creek
and he'd never lift a finger to help me
out." 1 replied: "You need not worry if
1 ever get into the creek 1 shall not ask
you to help me." He said: "If I did
get in he would not
or foot to assist me.
On Wednesday of the same week H.
E. Brown having expressed a wish that
I see d. R. Carr and ask him some' ques
tions concerning school election. I went
to the house without telling the family
where I was going but expecting to re
turn by 7or 8 o'clock p. m. H. E. was
expected home by '.) or 10 p. m. It be
coming very dark and rainy I went for a
prospective* ride home. H. E. arrived at
home and immediately came after me.
He showed no violent anger while at
Mr. Can's house, but immediately upon
coming out of doors began to scold,
finally telling me if 1 did not stop run
ning around to the neighbors without
telling him where I was he would ex
pose me to the neighbors, and if that
did not stop me he would put us both
where we would trouble no one. May
4H. E. Brown asked me to mortgage
my eighty acres of land to raise
his debts due and past due. I positively
refused to encumber my land. After we
had returned home he gave me consid
erable abuse because I would not com
ply with his wishes. After going to bed
he became somewhat angry because I
persistently refused, and said "He
wished we were all dead and he was
going to get up and kill himself." He
got up. He wanted me to come out into
the other room, as he wished to
ask me a question and did not
wish Henry to hear. I refused to get
up. He went to the kitchen and loaded
his gun; came back into the bedroom
and again asked me to get up. He stood
a few minutes, then" blew out the light
and went to tied. Rough on rats and
Paris green were in the house. After
changing my dress and getting ready to
prepare supper on the 7th of March, I
saw Hiram shut the cupboard door as I
came from the bedroom, but saw noth
ing in his hand. About ten days ago 1
heard Hiram make the remark that "he
missed Jesse, but so far as his father
was concerned he was perfectly satis
lied." Last Sunday night, before we
knew the report of the chemist, Hiram
remarked that "he knew it was poison
before the doctor got "there, and he knew
it was in the water." 1 replied "If you
knew it was there you must know
how it got there." He replied in
substance. "No doubt you would like
to fasten it onto me. I haven't felt my
self safe for some time. My children
are all that have kept me with him for
three years." Carl Peterson, the hired
man, says in reference to the words
used by Mr. Brown at the time 1 enry
fell into the water that at the time he
wrote the exact language in his account
book. Hiram said: "What is the reason
you did not come down? If it had been
you 1 would not stir one step to help you
out. I hope to God you will get into
the creek some time. D-d if I'd get in
alter you if you never got out." * Mrs.
Brown at one time while sue was visit
ing with Frank Fisher, said in answer
to the question "are you sick?" She
wasn't really sick but had nothing to
live for. S.ie sat silently awhile knit
ling then again said: "I'll finish an
other pair then some one else can do the
rest." ;7:.*7:
A Fire at Wakefield Causes Sad
Loss and a Shooting.
Special to the Globe.
Ashland, June Another fire
horror has occurred at Wakefield. The
Sparta house, a large two-story frame
building took fire at 11 o'clock Sunday
night, and in twenty minutes it was
burned to the ground, together with two
lives. Every one except little Johnny
and Harry Bowter, aged three and four
years respectively, sons of the landlord,
were cut off by flames, although noble
efforts were made to rescue them.
Other guests 'barely escape in their
night clothing, little else being saved.
By the hard work of citizens the Perry
house and surrounding buildings were
saved. The form of a man was
seen in the flame and smoke,
but an examination of the ruins
this morning reveals none but
charred bodies of children. Loss on
hotel, $2,000. No insurance. Witnesses
of the holocaust say that the efforts of
the people to save the children were
frantic. The parents were wild with
grief. While the fire was in progress

came disorderly, aud when Officer
Yeardon tried to arrest him he resisted,
and the latter shot him in the bowels.

Helena, June IS.— The. Big Horn
train robbery occurred Saturday night
instead of Friday, as stated. J.(F. Will
iams, engineer of Helena's new water
works, was on the train. He had $150
on his person when the robbers attacked
the tram, but hid it under the carpet of
the Pullman and gave the highwaymen
only $5. Father Hybeles, the Catholic
priest of Tacoma, concealed $700 in the
same way. The robbers got $500 in all.
They were disgusted with the poverty
of the passengers, and the robber chief,
on leaving tiie train, advised all the
passengers to join almshouses as soon
as they oeached their destinations. He
got only $190 from the sleeper, and told
the passengers they were a d— d poor
crowd to be traveling in Pullman palace
ears. There were sixteen persons in the
Pullman, including six ladies, who were
in berths, and not molested by the rob
bers. No shots were fired in
the _; sleeper,, but _in ..-*. the day
cars the -desperadoes riddled the :
; windows with bullets for effect.' The
big safe in the express car had a time'
lock and was not tampered with. They
got $50 from the small safe.- The din
ing car. was not entered, and its con
ductor, with over $250 in his possession,
slept through the entire affair. The
tram was stopped an hour and three
quarters, and the robbers, '- armed
with Winchesters, lined both sides
of the cars. Fourteen robbers were
counted by the passengers, and it is
supposed more were concerned in the

wayman. The sheriff of Yellowstone
county and posse took a trail yesterday.
Indian scouts and United States . troops

thrown into a fever of excitement this

ner's Demise— A Pickpocket's
Special to the Globe.
St. Clow, Minn., June IS.— Last
Thursday Felix Wagner, of Avon, sud
denly died under convulsions, and the
circumstances of his death strongly

by Crandall & Barclay, of this

been playing cards at a saloon in the

of his comrades who caught him in the
act of cheating. Leaving the saloon, he
went to the postoffice, and, borrowing a
revolver from one of the clerks, started
for the residence of his sister, Mrs. G.
H. Atwood, who resides at the corner
of Third avenue soulh and Dubuque

wanted to die." Dr. B. J. Merrill was

conveyed to the city hospital, where his
wounds were attended to as well as pos
sible, but there is little hope of his re

and it is presumed this may have had
something to do with his state of mind.
He instructed Dr. Merrill to say, if

The vote on a second to the motion re
sulted yeas 50, nays 11.
Mr. Burrows raised the point of no
quorum. Mr. Townshend said the house
had better adjourn if a bill of this kind
could not be considered. Mr. Browne,
of Indiana, said the proposed expendi
ture should not be made of the national
treasury. Every time a celebration
was proposed, an appeal was made to
congress. Yorktown was an instance
of the kind which would go down as
one of the . •

a local affair, and the conduct of the
other side in objecting was disgraceful.
Mr. Browne, of Indiana, in reply, stated
that he was well disposed toward the
Gettysburg celebration, but it was not a
matter for action of the general govern
ment. He found no warrant for aid to
every menagerie ami circus. Mr.

heartily in accord with the gentleman.
Messrs. Townshend, of . Illinois, and
Spirola, of New York, declared that no

Chicago postoffice and custom house.
After a struggle he succeeded in getting

the bill. An amendment was adopted
on motion of Mr. Farquhar, of New
York, defended by Mr. Ryan, of Kan
sas, providing that there shall be no ex

A Bank Wrecker Dies in Joliet
Joliet, 111., June IS.— Benjamin O.
T. Hubbard died at Joliet prison yester
day. He was the wrecker of the First
National bank, of Monmouth. His
shortage of $115,000 caused the concern's
doors to close in 1885. Hubbard was
the cashier. He stood well in society
and was considered a very honorable
man- Public opinion ran high against
him, because a great number of the de
positors were poor people who had
placed their hard-earned savings of
years in his hands. He was tried in
the United States court in Chicago and
sentenced to seven years imprisonment
at hard labor. He had been ailing for a
long time, and was reduced to a mere
shadow of his former self. Several at
tempts to secure a pardon from Presi
dent Cleveland resulted in a refusal of
each application.

The procession lias started for the Plymouth Hat Depart

army of them, can be fitted out without breaking our stock*
To deal directly with hat manufacturers is only possible to
the largest retailers, as necessarily purchases have to be so
large. As we buy large and cheap, so we sell, and we know,
and most of you know, no one Retailer, or all of them put to
gether, can approach us.
A Bargain Friday man advertised genuine Mackinaw
Hats for men, 30 cents, this day only; less than cost. He
probably told the truth, but the Plymouth's price is 25 cents
for genuine Mackinaw Hats every day in the week but Sunday,
and we DON'T sell at cost.
