BORROWED THE GASH
MASKKD ROBBERS ISE EFFECTIVE MEANS TO SECURE A LOAN OF $1,500. AGREE TO SEND THEIR NOTE. TELL A HARD IiUCK STORY OF BE ING ON THE VERGE OF BANKRUPTCY. CROW WING FARMER THE VICTIM. Wan Afraid of Banks and Kept His Savings Bidden at Home Since the l'nnic. Spec:al to the Globe. BRAINERD, Sept. 3.— Two masked men overpowered and bound Robert Magee, a farmer, living at St. Matthias, in this county, on Saturday lest, tied a grain sack over his head and kept lam in hiding in the woods until dark, when they marched him to his home, tied and gagr&ed his mother, an aged lady, the only other ocupant of the premises, and by threats of burning the house over their heads, succeeded in forcing them to disclose the hiding place of nearly $1,500 in money. During the ear ly part of last winter Mr. Magee took the money from the bank, owing to ■uneasiness in regard to bank failures, and hid it on his premises, and the rob bers had evidently come into possession of knowledge of the transaction. The en tire amount was not turned over to the robbers at first, and the threat thit they would torture them until the hid ing" plac a of the balance was disclosed, so terrorized the lady that she told then-, were it was. One r>f th^ robbers informed Mr. Magee tha-t he would send his not.a for the entire amount to bim by mail and would pay the note in November if no effort was made to capture them, and also that the money was to be used to kjep him from go ing into bankruptcy, as he was a busi ness man and in hard luck financially. The matter has been kept quiet until today by the authorities. -"THE CHURCH OX WHEELS" Wan the Snbjeet of Lecture to Snn day School Workers at Anokii. Special to the G'.obe. »»*♦*.

'■ SPANIARD'S GUN Turned on an Englislimon and Slay Make Trouble. NEW YORK, Sept. 3.— A special to the Herald from Memerara, British Guiana, says: George H. Moore, a grant holder on the British Guiana bank of the Amaeura river, northwest district, reports: "On Monday myself and one Thomas Bennett left our resi dences with my boat, sailing to Point Barima, for the purpose of fishing. In passing the Spanish station, which is at the mouth of the river, one of the Venezuelan police called us to slop, and I wanted to know why. I got no reply. On continuing my journey, Col. Castania. the officer in charge, has tened out from the general's quarters with a Winchester and beckoned me to stop. I refused to do so. He (Col. Castania) aimed at us and fired, but without striking either of us, and we continued on our way." The incident, has been reported to the colonial office, London, and while it is not expected that much more will be heard of it. settlers in the North west territory of the colony are anx ious that the imperial authorities should obtain assurance that such demonstration shall not be continued. The right to fish off Point Barima was enjoyed by the Dutch from their earliest settlement on the coast of Guiana, and was one to which the British succeeded. PBEI'EII HUNTING PEARLS. ArKansas Planters* May Not Get Cot ton Pickers. HELENA, Ark., Sept. 3.— The pearl hunting industry, which has been ex citing the whole country, is spreading all over this end of the state. The St. Francis river from the mouth of the river to Jeffersonville, is lined with white people and negroes, all engaged in unearthing and prying open tho richly laden mussel shells. One young man brought a small bottle of pearls to Helena, taken from Phillips bayou, a tributary of the St. Francis. They are no darker in color than the or dinary pearls of commerce, but are i handsomer shaped and are of good size. All of the chain of lakes in the hitherto impenetrable St. Francis river bottoms are full of these pearl-bearing mussels, and if they should prove to be valuable, tho whole country will soon be engaged in the business, to the detriment of crop-gathering. One planter said yesterday that he expect ed to have difficulty in securing hands to pick his cotton on account of the pearl excitement. THE SAINT FAOXr GI,OBE; SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1897. HIS FWSH TRAGIG RUSSELL 'WARD, A PROMINENT FIGURE IN THE BRADBURY CASE, DEAD. JUMPED FROM FLYING CAR. THE REMAINS DISCOVERED BE SIDE THE TRACK NEAR WHEAT LAND, IN IOWA. ENGLISHMAN EVIDENTLY INSANE. Attention of the Train Crew At tracted by the Peculiar Actions of the Suicide. CHICAGO, Sept. 3— Russell D. Ward, the Englishman, who created a sensa tion a short time ago by eloping with the wife of Millionaire John Bradbury, of Los Angeles, Cal., committed sui cide some time during the early morn ing by throwing himself from a Chi cago & Northwestern railroad train. The fact was not known until hours later, and as the result of a search which was immediately begun, the body of Ward was found at Wheat land, 10. It is not known at exactly what hour ■ Ward leaped from the train, but according to Conductor Cal loway, the act was committed after 3 o'clock this morning. Ward was evi dently insane when he threw himself out of the car window, as he had been acting peculiarly a greater part of the trip, and frequently sent telegrams to all parts of the country. When the train was at Fremont, Neb., Ward sent a telegram to the police department at detective head quarters in Chicago, requesting them to meet the train at the Northwestern depot this morning. He signed the telegram "R. W." and for several hours the police in this city endeavor ed to find out who "R. W." could be. The telegram gave the police no in formation, but the sending of it matos the police believe Ward intended to commit suicide on the train and sent the telegram for the purpose of having the police find his body when the train arrived in this city. Ward boarded the train at San Fran cisco, Cal., at 5:30 o'clock, Monday evening. He was immediately assign ed to drawing room B, car 2, and he had tickets through to Chicago. Al though he did not display much money Ward was dressed in a new suit of black clothing and had been stopping at a hotel in San Francisco for some time. After being given possession of his apartment in the Pullman car, Ward remained away from the other passengers most of the time, and spent all his time in his own apartments. SIGNS OF INSANITY. Early yesterday morning, he began to show signs of insanity. He flourish ed two revolvers on the train several times and almost created a panic among; the other passengers. He told the conductor of the train who he was, and acted in a very peculiar manner. At nearly every stop the train made, he would get off and send telegrams. One of these messages he sent, to a resident of Los • Angeles, Cal., saying that if Mrs. Bradbury wanted him she could come to him, but for the present he would have to go to England and visit his wife. Another telegram was one he sent to Chicago. The latter he sent from Fremont, Neb., and reads as follows: "Please send a good man to drawing room B, car 2, of the east-bound over land Northwestern train, arriving In Chicago at 7:30 tomorrow morning." The telegram was dated Fremont and was sent at 4:49 p. m. Lieut Collins received the message, and, thinking it was in regard to some fu gitive from justice, turned it over to Lieut. Haas, and this morning the lat ter detailed Detective Sergeant Brodt rick, of headquarters, to meet the train at the depot. Ward's effects consisted of several expensive satch els and his railroad tickets. The satch els were examined by the Pullman lailroad officials at the union depot, and it was through the papers found in the satchels that his identity was learned. The Northwestern people were notified of this fact, and the train dispatcher of the Galena division ol that road immediately proceeded to have the body looked for. Tele gram;? were sent all along the line as far as Fremont, Neb., and orders were given station agents to search for the remains. Several hours later a dis patch was received from Wheatlands. 10., that the body had been found alongside the track near that place. The body was dressed only in a night robe, and was much bruised. The re mains were taken to Clinton, 10., where they are being held. SHORT ON CASH. In Ward's satchel was found only $12 in cash, but he also had a draft for $450. He also had in his clothing a hotel bill for $94. The suicide's personal effects includ ed a big revolver in a holster, and a bowie knife. One letter was found signed "Tour affectionate mother." It was dated several months ago. The letter simply upbraided Ward for failing to keep her posted on his whereabouts and for his neglect in not writing to her. Cards showing his membership to the Marlborougii Kennell club, England, and the Wel lington club, Grosvenor Place, Corn hill, London, S. W., were also found. The following note was written with lead pencil on a blank piece of paper: "Dear Drew: Would it be expecting too much of you to see this detective and tell him that I am willing to re turn to Los Angeles and undergo ar rest there with him, if he likes? I would rather return and face the mu sic for what can only be a short time. Of course, if you object in the least tel! me so. Yours truly, — "W. Russell Ward." A clipping from the San Francisco Examiner detailing the arrest and i escape from jail at Los Angeles, or. j Aug. 30, of a man whose name was given as Henry Bacon, was found in his pocket. Bacon was charged with holding up a_ street car and three gambling houses. From the tone of the note which refers to "the detec tives" and the telegram sent to the Chicago police, it would seem possible that Ward had committed some crime at Loe Angeles, and that, having failed to give himself up to the Loa ! Angeles authorities, concluded to sur- I render to Chicago police, but decided later to commit suicide. Nobody on the train, not even the officials, knew that Ward was miss ' ing. until Conductor Roundy took charge of the train at Geneva, at 5 I TRY GRAIN-O! TRY GRAIN"O!

A recent issue of "Fashions," an il lustrated monthly journal for women, has an interesting article on women traveling alone, in which, after refer ring to the block signal system, and other safety devices for which the New York Central is celebrated, thia statement is made: "If the lone woman happens to be going to New York City, she need have no dread of landing alone in the con fusion of a big, strange place, if she travels by the New York Central. All she has to do is to speak to one of the red-capped attendants— free serv ice—who will carry her bag, answer her questions and show her to cab, car, or elevated train. "Another thing, she lands right in the heart of the city, within a step of a dozen or more of Its leading ho tels — and she should bear in mind- that, this is the only railroad depot in all New York City. "The New York Central might aptly be called 'the lone woman's route.' " —»- 1 MRS. LUETGERTS RINGS Identified as Those Found in the Sausage Vat. CHICAGO, Sept. 3.— Three women gave damaging evidence against the defendant in the Luegert trial today. They positively identified the rings found in the vat, as being the proper ty of Mrs. Luegert, and said that they had seen them on her hands, and one of them had talked with her about the rings at one time, and so felt sure that the rings found in the vat and those she saw on the fingers of Mrs. Luetgert were the same.. The defense made a desperate effort to. break down the evidence of the three women, but they all stuck to their .stories, and swore that the rings were those which the wife of the sausagemaker had worn before she disappeared. The session of court was short in the afternoon, as Judge Tuthill said that he desired to make a personal visit to the factory, and see for himself where the murder is said to have been committed. He took with him one at torney from the side of the defense, and one from those engaged in the prosecution, and during their visit to the factory no other person was al lowed around the premises. Carl Voelker, a chemist, who had been at one time engaged with Luet gert in the manufacture of permanga nate of potash, and was at one time a shipping clerk in the factory, testified during the afternoon session that he was familiar with all of Luetgerfs processes for the making of sausage, and that he had never had any oc casion to use any caustic potash around the place. The defendant could not, he said, have secured it for the purpose of using it in the making of the sausage. During all of the time that Voelker was around the factory, he said that the vats were never used. The crush around the court room has increased to such proportions that it was found necessary today to take active measures to keep the crowd away from the trial. The court room is on the third floor of the criminal court building, and orders were given that none of the passenger elevators should stop, save at the second and fourth floors. Officers were then sta tioned at the stairways, and nobody who did not have business in the court room was allowed to pass.. ROCKEFELLER MAKES GOOD. Bis Check Sent to the Baptist Mis sion Society. BOSTON, Sept. 3.— John D. Rocke feller, in pursuit of a promise to the American Baptist Missionary union, and the American Baptist Home Mis sionary society, has sent his check for the balance of the $250,000 to be given by him on condition that the two societies should raise $236,000. On Aug. 1, the American Baptist Mission ary union, which has headquarters in Tremont temple, in this city, receiv ed Mr. Rockefeller's check for $121,267. Now the American Baptist Home Mis sionary society, the headquarters of which are in New York city, has re ceived a check for the amount neces sary to cancel its indebtedness. This contribution is the largest gift ever made to the missionary cause. BIT ONE RETURNED. Eitriit of a Party of American Gold Hunters Dead. DENVER, Col., Sept. 3:->-George W. Adams, of Cripple Creek; arrived in this city today from the gold fields of South America. Fourteen months ago Adams left this *£it/ to try his fortune in South American mines. He went to the gold fields, 11 300 miles from Georgetown, in company j with eight Americans, remaining" there eleven months. Of the entire, party of nine, he alone escaped death from the fatal fever. One by one he saw his com panions die of the fatal disease, saw a hole scooped in the ground, and their bodies, twisted from pain, covered with earth. He was attacked twice with the malady, and all but died, and finally, after seeing the last of the eight die in agony, he became terror-* stricken and fled from the country, a country from which he says that not one out of seventy-five white men ever return alive. _^» He Wouldn't Do. "Why don't you give Mr. Blazer any en couragement?" asked her dearest friend. '"He seems to think a great deal of you." "He's too heavy," replied the summer girl. "Too heavy!" "Yes. He weighs ISO or more." "But what of that?" "Why, I weigh 130 myself, and my ham mock is only warranted for 300 pounds."— Chicago Post. KANSAS PROSPEROUS. CommlMHioner Breidenthal Says 40, -000 Homes Will Be Cleared. TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 3.— ''Kansas is today the most prosperous state in the union," said Bank Commissioner John W. Breidenthal yesterday. "There will be 40,000 homes cleared of mortgages this fall. Think of what that means. The mortgages will aver ago $1,000 each, which means the ex penditure of $40,000,000. It means also that this state is becoming a common wealth of homes. It means that the farmers of Kansas are realizing the opportunities which are offered them and doing their best to make the most of them. "I. have received letters from banks in the smaller towns of the state, ask ing- if they could legally refuse de posits. This is a condition which never before prevailed in Kansas. The banks have thousands of dollars on deposit, and do not care to take the responsibility of receiving more money. There is no demand for it, consequently the bankers desire to ac cept no more money. "Never in the history of Kansas has there been as much money with which to pay debts as we find in the state today. The state has struck a won derful streak of luck. Conditions brought a good, wheat crop; the prices advanced; cattle are plenty and com mand a good price. These conditions found Kansas in a good position to profit immensely thereby, and we are doing it. "There never has been a time in the history of the state when the farmers have not raised eno-ugh to live on. Now comes this magnificent year, with immense crops and high prices, and it is little wonder they are making the best of it. The people are making an earnest effort to get out of debt, and when xhey succeed in doing this the Kansas farmer will be the most inde pendent person on earth, because he knows enough to keep out of debt when once he gets started in the right direction." *^_ ICE HIGH IN ALASKA. Sells for Fifty Cents a Pound in the Klondike. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Sept. 3.— Imagine ice at 50 cents a pound at Dawson, close under the arctic circle, with the thermometer 90 to 100 in the shade. A letter received from Edgar Mizner, written from Dawson on June 2S, tells of this and other summer rigors on an arctic climate, and the life and death struggle with the mos quitoes. "Things are a little quiet here just at present," Mizner writes, "on ac count of the scarcity of water. The weather for the last ten days has been very hot, the thermometer ranging from 90 to 100 in the shade, and Ice 50 cents a pound — just think of that for a place so close to the arctic circle. Last winter everybody was too busy digging gold to save ice. "Every few days rumor goes the rounds that gold has been struck in some new creek, and at once a stam pede is started for that locality, but the men soon returned empty-handed. "No one can conceive what a terrible pest the mosquitoes are until he has experienced them as they are here. They come out of the wet moss by the millions. Clouds of them swarm all over and remain with you, making their way under your netting and hat, up your sleeves, and covering your netting so thickly that you can hardly breath through it. I have seen grown men throw up their hands and cry and howl in despair and almost go crazy. It would take a very large nug get to tempt me into the mountains until they thin out some. They say they will mostly disappear in about two weeks. . The mountains tonight are on fire in all directions, the fires being set by men trying to smoke out the mosquitoes." AGED 74 AXD SEEKS A DIPLOMA. Request of a Kansas VV'omnn Who Has l.<>n:i Been a Teacher. TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 3.— Miss B. K. Crittenden, of Brookville, Kan., has written a letter to State Superinten dent Striker that has caused much comment.

NEW YORK, Sept. 3.— Dr. E. Ben jamin Andrews is in the city for the purpose of consulting with John Bris bin Walker. The unexpected action of the Brown university corporation in requesting the withdrawal of the resignation of Dr. Andrews makes it necessary that an understanding be reached between the president of Brown and the prospective president of the Cosmopolitan university. Dr. Andrews is registered at the Murray Hill hotel. Shortly after his arrival Mr. Walker called and was with Dr. Andrews for upwards of half an hour.
