Kmpty cartridge shalls were picked up Tuesday morning near .Jackson's home. It is evident the men who kid napped Frank from his peniteni ary cell Monday night headed direct for the home of little Mary l'l lagan. livery telephone wire in the vicinity surrounding the prison is in constant use, and a broad net has been thrown about the prison in attempting to get over twenty men who entered the prison about midnight, designat ed live, men to cover the officials, over powered the guards and tied them, then tied officials, and got Krank. The mob dragged Krank out by the heels, telling the prison officials they would find his body 011 the grave of little Mary Kliag an. Governor Harris ordered every agency of the state enlisted in an attempt to lind the kidnap pers. There were few disorders here. The news came during the night, and there were only a few groups of people con gregated on the street corners discussing the situation. A few hot beads made talks. There is a revulsion of feeling here and strong opposition to the lynching. Stung In A New Placc. A man and a woman dropped into a small town and put up at the best hotel. The next morning they secured a rig each, and started over the country, asking the farmer folks lora chicken for an orphan's home in St. Louis. After two days' begging they sohl the chickens to a local produce man for $.30 and left town. Their loot included several cash donations. A variation of the scheme is for a man, wearing some sort ot badge, to call 011 the farmers under the name of the depaitmeiit of health and demand to see his poultry. Alter examination he condemns twenty or thirty liens and tells the fanner they will have to be killed because they are diseased. He I very kindly offers to take the chick ens and do the killing himself. If the tanner consents, the mail takes the chickens to tie nearest commis sion merchant and sells them. Tin scheme is being wot ked all over the country. If a man or a woman calls on you with a demand that looks suspicious, call up your local auth orities and ask by what right they are asking to inspect your stock or poultry. When you get the answer, turn them over to the police.— Ortonville Journal. John Gumo was a business caller from Claire City, Monday.
