The prisoner was lodged in the lola Jail,.but he regilned his liberty before morning. It seems the copper had the description of a Colorado murder- ier and the offer of a $600 reward for his capture. . Coltren answered the description even to a sciir on bis face. The officer had to be convinced by a doten witnesses that Coltren has been here at work all the time before he would give him and the $500 up. Coltren Is a young smeltermen, a son-in- law of Jim Overmyer. FOCITl PilBEJOT MflBIIT Sheriff Went to Missouri After Contractor Who Got Money and Failed to Pay His Men. J. Cr ^ey, 1 A blesslnf^ alike to yonng and old; Dr.' Fowleirfa Extract of Wild, Stftiw- berry; nature's specllfe for dyaentery, 4liurtioea and soauner complaint ^ Sonne tiipo ago the lola Portland Cement Company filed complaint in Judge Potter's court against J. T Page, a contractor who took the Job of building their store building In Bassett. The company was to furnish ma terial and pay $408.01 for labor. Page drew $200 at one time f nd $200 more 'on June 2. At the last payment be owed his men and skipped with the $200. The company figures he owes them $256. A garnishment summons was served on Northrup's bank and $1.58 found which had been attached thirty minutes before by another creditor. Page also had an account with J. W. Coffey, but he collected from Mrs. Page whom he located at Walnut. Night before last Sheriff Richardson went to Missouri on the trail of Page, but he returned empty-handed this morning. Love 's Young Dream Awry. Mrs. William A. Baker, a handsome, well-dressed young woman, today sought public aid to help her to her parents' homo at Ottawa. She is the young woman who attempted suicide two weeks ago because of trouble with her husband. She has left him a time or two,' but he followed and persuaded her to live with him again. She charges that Baker will not If You Laundered 1 • your linen yourself you could not handle it more carefully than we do. Pure soap and water wash It Pure starch stiffens It Fine ntachlnery pvi skilled labor Iron it perfectly. We know our work Is the best We guarantee it to b« the best Try It, if you do not .also think It Is the best, don't pay for it Wagons dali everywhere. ;^ lola St •1% •' ri ^ _ work, but lies about town while she and her little child may starve so far as he is concerned. The family furniture, such as has not been sold, is stored away and as an indebtedness rests on it she cannot dispose of it. Mrs. Baker told her trojublcs to several of the authorities today and was advised not to ask aid but to swear out a warrant for her husband for non-support. This she seemed inclined to do and departed for the jus tice court, but up to the time of going to press the police had not served any papers. The domestic difflcultles cf the Bakers seem to bo painful an.1 neverendlng and there is. doubtless some blame on both sides. in the District Court. The suit of Earl Stout against Geo.' E. Nicholson for- $8,500 damages is still the sole topic of interest in district court. The case Is being fought point by point and promises to last some time yet. During the brief intermission the suit of E. A. Gleason against T. L. Webster was submitted to court and judgment rendered in favor of the plaintiff for $294.50 to draw interest at 8 per cent. The property is to bo sold and proceeds applied on judgment and costs. The rain this morning leaked through the roof of the court room so badly that the court changed about, the jury occupying the east end of the room, and the bride a daughter of J. Barack- northeast comer; and the lawyers out In front. ^ . -v-^ Two Colored Girls Arrested. The poice last evening found two colored girls on the street who. answered the description given of two who were suspected of theft in East lola. The officers questioned them and learned that the girls were, as -they said, "sports, from Clipnute." The girls were locked up, but were releas ed this morning. Mrs. Milton, living on South' Fourth street, had two colored girls helping her pack her household goods props ratory' to moving.. She stepped out of the house and on rotuming nrissed her purine containing a few dorllars, from th^ dresser. Theg colored girls haid quit work and were preparing to leave. Sho doesn't know that they took the monSy, but suspeets tbein.. The police, watching for j the!; two sospected girls, caught 'the Chaante dusky doves; ^ .| .^ffji, jA Small blaze at MJIne Honie. When T. A. Milne " reached •home last evening ho lieard a comi^otion indoors that caused him to hurry. Running up stairs ihe found the cui*- tains at one of thb windows blazing and ho seized it and tried to fhrust •it from a window.' But ho had forgot the screen, and the wind blevsTIc back into the room, onto a bed. Before he extinguished the flame 'its hand was painfully | burned, but little further damage done. Tho children had sought to closel the window when tho curtain caught under the Bash. One held a lamp i while the Athcr opened the window and the rising breeze blew the curiialn over the lamp, igniting it. • j:;.; Another Holiday.
