"'""H I (f^K 1 ,m mpoets of malignant disease PROVES TO BE FALSE ^f" Sane Excitable Natures Have Taken Rumor, Founded on Practically Nothing, and Made it Appear That the Town Was Liable to be Quaran tined, Mails Stopped and Other Dreadful Things Happen. Wild stories 'have come from Sv&rts of black diphtheria, schools baring to he closed, one death and many other dangerous cases, of pos sibility of the -whole town being quarantined and mails stopped and other crazy rumors Vhlch when ehased down iby a representative of the American yesterday all melted Into nothingness. Dr. H. J. Rock of this city was c&Med in consultation by Dr. George of Evarts over the case of a little son of the Prank Marsh family who showed symptoms of diphtheria and went out Friday morning returning Friday night. Through his kindness t)he American's representative was able to get at the actual facts. It seems that there have probably been eight cases of a very mild form of diphtheria, during the past three weeks, all in one family, whose house Is in an isolated' part of the town. The cases were so mild that the nature of the disease was not suspect ed until several had recovered and the head of the family, Frank Marsh, exposed himself and his throat pained him eome. He called Br. George a week ago Friday and at that time was not In a serious condition. Dr. George was called later in the same day on a trip west of the Mis souri some sixty miles and was de talned by last Saturday's storm, so he did not get back to the west bank oft'he river until Sunday afternoon. There he was met by another party with an urgent call and instead of crossing to Evarts he turned back to Jj give assistance. The result was he ||J was unable to return to Evarts until mi Tuesday. In the meantime, Mr. Marsh's case had become more aggravated and he died of laryngeal diphtheria. Dr. Bock is positive that Dr. George would have been able to save his life 4' it had been .possible for toim to have been there .to attend him, but he knew nothing of the disease having become more serious in his absence until (his return. A boy in the same family showed signs of becoming worse and Dr. Bock was summoned in consultation. „v. They were agreed that it was a case |g|? of diphtheria in a mild form. Anti iLikjfsSi toxin was, glven.and a phone .message riM ^te yesterday reports the boy much better. The Evarts schools had been-closed after the death of Mr. Marsh, but Doctors George and Rock established a strict quarantine over the premises where the boy is recovering and recommended that school be resumed tomorrow. Dr. Rock considers all the wild rumors as entirely without founda tion and: that there Is no probability of a further spread of .the disease. NOTED MUSICIANS COMING Skovgaard, Danish Violinist, and Miss Olson, Norwegian Vocalist Skovgaard, the great Danish viol inist, and Eleonora Olson, the Nor wegian prima donna, will appear In this eity at the Methodist church on the evening of November 9th, under the auspices of the Luther league of 'J^§g|jjg the Norwegian -Lutheran church. This fsMg?mar aBnbnnc«nent""iwTIl~be"receIved with' great delight by everyone who Is a lover of music, for these two musi cians are among the best in the World today. Skovgaard is the most eclectic violinist before the world to day. He can play airy trifles with in finite charm and grace', Beethoven with profound depth breadth and virility.

But that id what 'happened last evening at the Central Presbyterian church at the concert given by Skovgaard and his concert company. At the conclusion of Pizzicato Grazloso, a piece written by himself, which was the last of his final group, Skovgaard was compelled to reappear several times upon the platform. The applause continued, and finally when some one in the bal cony called out, 'Home, Sweet Home,' those in the audience who had al ready filed out into the aisles return ed as one person and the violinist was obliged to give one last number. "Skovgaard has made a happy se lection in his associates this year. The program, too, was a well balanc ed one last evening. Skovgaard was the same finished artist that was seen here last year. All his numbers were repeatedly encored, but none won more applause than the simple melo dy of 'Way Down NUpon the Swanee River,' which was given as an encore after 'Gypsy Life,' by Saraste." Of Miss Olson's work the Chicago Tribune says: VJ? "Eleonora Olson sang with deep, powerful voice In a manner most ar tistic. She possesses a most charming stage appearance and manner, which added to a rich mezzo-soprano voice captivated her audience." 5 & s® mi' HS RELIEVED OF $55 BT MAN HE THOUGHT HIS FRIEND $fr Robbery Occurred in the Koch Outfit Which Was Working About Eight Miles From Town—Thief Hails From Washington, But Nothing '-gf- B' Else is Known of Him. $ 1 jljPi A thresher working in the Koch threshing outfit about 8 miles from this city was the victim of a daring robbery last Saturday night. He was sleeping In a shack with his regular ibunk mate and along to ward morning heard some one in the room prowling stealthily about In the dark. He arose from his bed and started toward where he thought the noise came ifrom, and bumped into a person. He struck out with (his fist in the darkness and hit the unknown prowler in the face and then the fel low made .his get away so suddenly that following him was Impossible. The thresher then went back to his bed thinking nothing had (happened. When he awoke in the morning ihe noticed that his .bunk mate was not with him. He arose and dressed and then a startling discovery was made. One of his pockets which had con tained... $55 had been slit open, with-: a knife, and the contents were of course missing. He then knew the mysterious person had been success ful in his attempt at robbery. Soon after, his hunk mate was reported missing and as he has not been found lit is thought that he was the thief. The only clue to the man Is that he came here from Washington state, his name not being known.

Mr. B'lrey in company with two other gentlemen returned last Saturday from an extended trip along the new Milwaukee survey and this trip has resulted in the formation of the syndicate, as the members of the party were so favorably impressed by the counutry and its outlook that they consider it an ideal proposition to develop. Mr. Firey said yesterday to a representative of the American that the land w&s of a remarkably good quality and supiportlng a luxuriant growth of grass. But the most important resource of the land is the great quantity of lignite coal under-lying.it.

The organization of the syndicate Is not yet completed but will be matured in a short time. The mem bers include some of the most prom inent business men of this state and of Illinois. John A.

DOES MUCH BUSINESS Albert Neumen, register of deeds for Brown county, spent yesterday in checking up his accounts for Sep tember and estimating those for Oc tober. He says that over 700 instru ments were filed during the latter month, the proceeds arising there from amounting to about $675. For the month of September he found the total receipts were about $100 less. The month of October is always a prosperous one for the register of deeds as a good share of the real estate transfers of the years are made at that time. This year, however, the business is larger than ever .be fore, due no doubt to the confidence placed in the county and its land by real estate men from other states by reason of its great agricultural suc cess of the last few years. MRS. J. L. W. ZIETLOW MARKETS WITH GREAT SUCCESS While Preparing a Duck Which She Bought at the Boardman Meat Market, She Finds a Golden Nag get in Fowl's Crop—Had Evident ly Been There for Some Time As it Was Worn Smooth. Aberdeen people have heard in fable of the goose that laid the golden egg hut now they have an opportunity to learn of the duck of the golden crop. Such a curiosity has been brought to light in this wonderful town of Aberdeen and concerning It its good people are no doubt eager to hear. The other day Mrs. J. L. W. Zeit low purchased a tame duck at the Boardman meat market for the fam ily dinner. As she was putting It through the usual process prepar atory to cooking, she opened its crop and there found among the stones and gravel a fair sized nugget of gold. It was the size of an ordinary pencil end, hut worn smooth as glass by Its contact with the rought gravel. The precious anetaj had evidently been stored in its unnatural mine for some time, Judging from its ap pearance. Mrs. Zietlow has the nug get which she is showing to tyer friends as proof positive of the oc currence. Mr. Boardman, the market man, says that he bought a large number of tame ducks at which Mrs. Ziet low's was one. Perhaps some of the others may be even more valuable packages than hers. Mr. Boardman now claims that he is selling more than he actually advertises.
