KANSAS CITY, Aug. 10.—Miss Nic-
Kfeh, a comely Samoau, who had come
alone all the way from Apia to marry

the Pacific, while en route to Samoa.
Herbest, who is a portly German,
professed love, and followed his
sweetheart to her native country,
where she was governess in the family
of the German consul at Samoa. Har
best was soon compelled to return
home, but before starting he got her
promise to come later and become his
wife. She fulfilled her rather remark
able promise, after traveling over

Auditor Dunn Will Attempt to Recover
Some Deeded Lund.
ST. PAUL, Aug. 10.—State Auditor
Dunn has fully determined to test in
the courts the right of the Duluth and
Iron Range railroad to the land grant
which it claims. The road has al
ready been deeded some 200,000 acres
and claims 400,000 more. If it i9 not
entitled to the last named amount it
has been wrongfully deeded the 200,000
acr s which it now holds. An action
of mandamus would not lie against
Mr. Dunn to ^compel him to deed the
the lands still claimed by the road. He
has, therefore, about decided to bring
an action for the recovery by the state
of the lands already deeded. An ac
tion of this kind seems to be the only
method in which the matter can be
tested. It would bnii-r ah the issues

quantity, came from Nevada. The im
