THE REGISTER AND LEADER, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 17, 190. 1 ITS BOYS OF h a nn a th h a rime rn FA! SEEKS PAROLE FOR GEO, BURRIER way down to a point near the railroad waiter tank, at which point evidence was found of the robbers having hastily examined part of their plunder. The trail then led. to a point in a lumber yard near, where was found more evidence of the robbers having stopped; and then to a point in the road where a learn had evidently been waiting for them. The dogg there lost all track of the trail and were finally taken to a point out of town, and after soma hunting found and followed a trail to the house in which James and Smith were found two days before. The dogs did some further work that is important to the case, but the officers refuse to tell what they know. It is thought that they have, or will have, enough evidence before the five days are up, to convict the parties held, and in the meantime they are leaving nothing undone that will tend to clear up the case. ACTRESS DIES WHILE THE AUDIENCE STILL APPLAUDS 513-515 LOCUST STREET , PRICE CUTTING ON Fine Furniture In a few more days it will be necessary to go into court and make an adjustment of the affairs of this firm. It is greatly desired that the stock be reduced as much as possible before this time, and also, that as much ready money be on hand as can be obtained. In order to facilitate this arrangement, deep cuts have been made in the selling price of the entire stock and, while tli assortment is not complete, what there is left is marked remarkably low. If you contemplate any furniture forrholiday presents, we urge you to make your selections here and now as you will not be afforded a similar opportunity again. Nothing is reserved iii the stock and the assortment is daily diminishing. EVERY STICK OF THIS FURNITURE IS DUALITY FURNITURE. E. M. STEADMAN, Receiver. tons, which fits over the open end of the cylinder. . By a special arrangement of trucks made to ttt tne cylinder, with Iron shelves on which the siues of bacon are laid, the bacon is conveyed in and out of the cylinder when desired. When the full number of truck is placed in the cylinder, the cover is fastened in place by hydraulic pressure, which keeps it there. Then an air pump is applied for the purpose of creating, so far as possible, a vacuum on tne inside. The object of creating the vacuum is on the. tneory that all the veins of the carcass, aa well as the pores of the skin, are opened, so that when the brine is pumped into the cylinder it readily finds its way through the carcass. When the cylinder is tilled with brine the pump is still kept going, and forces the brine until there is a pressure in the cylinder of 120 pounds to the square Inch. The carcasses are left In this for from eight to nine hours, when the brine is run on and the air Is slowly admitted after the pressure has been reduced to zero. The meat is then left In for about half an hour before the removal of the front. When the cylinder is opened the sides are wheeled out on the trucks and are taken away and stacked. By this method they can be packed, baled and shipped the following day, thus saving eight days in the cure. This system nasSt. decided advantage over the old way In that the returns are received eight days sooner, thus Bhorter credit is necessary. On the other hand there is a heavy Initial expense in Installing the same, and perhaps a more, serious objection is the fact that the quality of the bacon is not so uniformly good as when cured by the hand system. Up to the present time not more than half a dozen factories are using the auto-cure. A Potent Factor. One of the most potent factors in the successful development of the bacon industry is co-operation. By this system of organization factories have been built and are being operated in all parts of the country. As the organization and operation of these cooperative factories will be described in a later communication no more space will be devoted to them in this connection. There is another feature, which is the direct outgrowth of the system of co-operative bacon factories, which has done and promises to do nil immense amount of good in the way of maintaining and elevating the high standard of Danish bacon. It is the holding of exhibitions of bacon, which are held under the auspices of the Cooperative Bacon Curers' association. Almost a score of factories have already entered into the agreement and more are considering the plan, bo that In the near future it will most likely involve all the factories in the country. The procedure is simple, as the manager of each factory interested receives a telegram from the munagers of the exhibition to forward a side of bacon which would ordinarily be shipped to England in the course of a day or two. Tho sides ure collected In Copenhagen, and judges (bacon mer-chats) are appointed by the committee, who examine the sides carefully, and give marks in accordance .with the quality, etc., of the bacon, on the same day that it would be likely to reach the retailer's hand in England. These exhibitions are solely for the purpose of keeping the managers of the co-operative factories up to date in the quality of their product, and also to assist the farmers in producing the proper class of bacon pig. The results are sent out to each manager taking part, and any defects which might have taken place in the factory are commented upon by the Judges for the information of the managers. If the pigs do not appear to be up to a good standard a report is asked for from the manager as to the general average stamp of pigs in his neighborhood. It ASK CONGRESS ftPPROPRIATION THE- FIFTY-FIRST MISS FLORA URI, SISTER OF THE REGIMENT, IS IN IOWX. ON HER WAY TO DES MOINES WILL BE ENTERTAINED AT RE' UNION OF REGIMENT. Won Her Name By Loving Attention? to Sick During Regiment' Stay in San Francisco. COUNCIL BLUFFS, la., Nov. 18. (Special.) Miss Flora Uri, "the sister of the fighting Fifty-first regiment." is spending this week in Council Bluffs, the guest of the Philippine veterans at me nome or Major and Mrs. SI. A. Tin ly. Next week Miss Uri will go to lies .Moines, where she will be enter talned as the guest of honor at a re union of the veterans of the old Fifty first Iowa regiment, which saw service in the Philippines. Miss Uri won her name as "sister" of the Fifty-first during that regiment's, long encampment at San Fran- ilseo. While the Iowa soldiers were at 'Frisco, Miss I'rl was heroically faithful In her attention to the needs and comforts and even luxuries of the Firty-flrst boys. Being the daughter or wealthy San Francisco parents, she was able to provide whatever she de sired for the soldiers and right lavish l.v did she open her purse strings to purchase the delicacies for the suf fering and homesick lowaus. Not a day passed while the Fifty-llrst was lu camp at 'Frisco that Miss Uri did not put to good advantage in going the rounds of the Iowa regiment's tents looking for those whom she might cheer and comfort. For this devotion she was dearly loved by all the sol tilers, who continue to cherish her as "sister," and she them as "the boys." Presented Her With Medal. In recognition of her heroic con duct, the regiment and the state of Iowa presented Miss Uri with a handsome gold medal executed in the seal of the state. On the reverse side of the medal is the inscription "To Flora i rl. from the state of Iowa and the Ftftyifirst regiment, with their com bined love." Miss X'ri continues to wear the medal and declares "All the money in the world could not buy it. The last four words more than repay me for what I did. I love the boys and when they came east they took my heart with them. I am here trying to fine the pieces Miss Uri has already visited a num ber of southwestern Iowa towns from which companies were sent for the Fifty-first regiment and at all of them the veterans, their parents and the citizens in general have tried to out do one another In honoring her. The story of Miss Url's unselfish devotion and untiring efforts In aiding the Iowa boys in blue during their stay at San Francisco, as related by those who were there, stands out as one of the most herois acts in the military annals of the regiment, a story of per vonal sacrifice and dally arduous labor seldom found even in the records of the Red Cross. "I believe I was attracted by the Iowa boys first because they were so young," said Miss Uri "They were a bright, manly lot, but the rigors of ramp life, and lack of the many home comforts they had left perhaps never to enjoy again, with the uncertainties of war before them, all told on them The homesick look on the faces of many appealed to my heart, and I re solved to do what I could to lessen their hardships. "Yes, the work seemed hard some times, and more than one day I fear ed I would not got around to see all the sick, but. when I thought of those boys so far from home, with no moth er or sister near to minister to them, I would somehow find strength to complete my rounds." In this simple statement, which is about all Miss Uri will say of her work, may be seen the character of the little woman the boys are proud to call "sister." OFFICERS HAVE FIVE DAYS IN WHICH TO WORK Suspects of St. Charles Postoffice Rob bery Plead Guilty to Charge of Drunkenness and Are Given Short Jail Sentence. WINTKR.SKT, la., Nov. 15. (Special.) The two men, James and Smith, who are suspected of blowing the safe of the St. Charles postoffice last Wednes day, and who have been held on the charge of intoxication, pleaded guilty to that charge at their hearing and were given five days in Jail. In the meantime, every effort is being made to fasten the robbery upon tliem. It Is known that they were in St. Charles the night before the rubbery took place. The statement that they made to the effect that they were mining coal near the shack In which they were found asleep in the day time, is not regarded m very substantial. Hoffmler's bloodhounds have helped to substantiate the belief that these two are the right parties, through the fact that upon taking the trail at the postoffice in St. Charles they led the A World of Fashion In all the garments make for tasteful, particular men.

HE IS NOW SICK AND PENITENT AIDED IN CONVICTION OF NOTORIOUS EASTERN IOWA GANG. Has Spent Large Portion of Life In Prison Pitiful Tale of Etta Odem. L. E. Fay ot Clinton, whose efforts resulted in the conviction and penitentiary sentence of every man supposed to have had any conwetton with the rioted Fay diamond robbery, was in Des Moines yesterday, in consultation with state officials with a view toward securing the parole of George Burrler. one of the most dangerous of the old gang. . Burner was sent up from Clinton two years ago for seventeen years in the penitentiary at Anamosa. The crime for which he was most directly sentenced was the robbery of the Fay residence and the houses of other rich Clinton people while associated with MlkeConroy, who is also in the penitentiary for a term of years. Mr. Fay has been much interested In iiurrier, who has of late renounced his former life and whose prison record has been very good. He has assisted Mr. Fay in running to earth the gang of criminals, who were associated in the Clinton and other big robberies and for this reason Mr. Fay believes that he should be accorded a parole subject to his behavior. Iiurrier is 33 years of age and has received sentences during his life of crime which aggregate thirty-six years. His first, offense was committed when hi; was IB years of age. He resided In eastern Iowa and was taught In the act of petty larceny for which he received three months In the county jail. Upon gaining his liberty he again was arrested for larceny and was sentenced to six months in the penitentiary. From that time on six months was the longest period he ever realized out of a prison cell. He was sentenced to live years in Missouri and upon the completion of this sentence he went to Indiana where he robbed a large mercantile establishment with the re-suit that he was sept up for a term of fifteen years. He served a part of tills sentence and when paroled came to Clinton at the instance of Mike Conroy. Here a daring set of robberies were planned by the gang of which Conroy, Dolun, Rogers, Hurrler and other notorious crooks were members. Several werecomtnitted without detection. Jiur-tler went to Davenport where, while In a drunken state, he robbed a laundry and was thus followed back over his course, until evidence was secured which sent him to prison for seventeen years. Later Mike Conroy was arrested for conspiracy. He Is a young man of good address and made a favorable impression in the court room. He was defended by William Foster, a noted Chicago criminal lawyer, and the first Jury disagreed. The second trial was held at Davenport where, through the. testimony of Hurrler and Etta Odem. his former mistress, Conroy was convicted and sentenced to ten years in prison. Etta Odem's Pitiful Story. The story of Burrier and Etta Odem is a pitiable one. When she appeared on the witness stand in Davenport and saw her former lover In custody with his head shaven and every evidence of his former life stamped clearly on his face, she was no longer the woman she had been when she and Burrler were the leaders In a clique of thugs and gamblers that shocked the west. She was corpulent and crippled by rheumatism, and the beauty that had once distinguished her among the denizens of Ninth strert, Omaha, had gone, having her an unsightly relic of the past. She told unfalteringly how Burlier had maintained her in a magnificent house in Omaha in his palmy days and how she had sold the house for funds with which to defend him when he was arrested in Davenport. Having lost It all she left her lite of shame and now resides with her mother in a little western Iowa town. Burrier went to prison. Burrier Now Penitent. However, prison life has commenced Its deadly work on Burrier and he longs to make up for the 111 he has done humanity. He lias made a good start In assisting in the conviction of those who helped him to fall from his Indiana parole and now wishes to retire from the world and live a decent life. His health is not good and he professes a change of heart tow ard his old associations. It is not known whether he has had any connection with the Shereltffe-Dennison outfi. and no attempt has been made to ascertain it, but his knowledge of Omaha crooks and his residence there was one of his principal meanB of crime. The mutter of his parole has not been discussed at the state house and may not be brought up for Investigation until some future time.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, la., Nov. 16.-a (Special.) Just as she had finished singing "Good-bye, Little Girl, Good-ble," on the stage of a theater in Biddeford, Me., Miss Eva Meschendorf, a former Council Bluffs girl, was stricken with heart failure and died within half an hour In the star's dressing room, Whllo the hastily summoned physicians were vainly endeavoring to bring the young woman back to life, her fellow players of the Dot Karroll company had to proceed with saddened hearts in the lines of "A Titled Outcast," which was the bill for the evening. Miss Eva Meschendorf was well known in this eity, being the daughter of George Meschendorf, who formerly owned a meat market on West Broadway. They resided here for many years above the store. When the Mes-chendorfs left Council Bluffs ten years ago. the daughter went on the stage, making her first appearance in vaudeville. Miss Meschendorf was married some time ago to Harmon L. Hadley of "6 Michigan avenue, Lynn, Mass., and to them a little daughter was born, who is now 3 years old. The funeral was held from the family home In Lynn, and in additoln to the relatives and friends a large number of theatrical people were present from all over the east, Miss Meschendorf having been popular in the profession. Her mother was at one time a famous character actress, and her step-father, E. K. Nlckerson, was one of the pioneers In the repertoire companies of the east. He is now solo cornetist at the Grand opera house in New York city. Miss Mcschendorf's own father now resides at New London, Conn., and he was present at the funeral. EDUCATION HAS BROUGHT GOOD RESULTS (Continued from Tag 1.) English market have taught these people the points to bo observed In tho breeding of pigs for bacon purposes. In no other country has the writer seen such uniformity of type in the swine as prevails in Denmark. This accounts in no small way for the high standing of the Danish bacon in the English mar ket. A close examination of the Dan ish bacon and that of other countries, in the Smlthileld market, London, was most convincing of the fact that the chief advantage of the Danish bacon over that of other countries, especially Canadian, was its marked uniformity. Types of Pig In Denmark. A brief description of the type of pig produced on the Danish farms will be sufficient in this connection. One of the most striking features of these animals Is their wonderful depth and length of body. While they are not broad pigs, it is remarkable the degree to which the width prevails from shoulder to ham and from the back to the lower portion of t lie body. This latter point is considered us being very desirable in giving a good uniform well fleshed side of bacon. A common fault in many sides of bacon is the fact that they are too wide In the back and almost entirely wanting in the lower parts. The Danes paid much attention to this point and at the present time their pigs arc exceptionally good In their lower lines. The thighs must be well developed, but not tlabby and rounding as Is seen in the bird hog. The object being to produce as much lean meat and muscle as possible, and the further It extends down on the hock the better. The back should be medium width, In proportion to the sides, and very uniform from rump to shoulder. The shoulders must not be coarse, ug a coarse shoulder makes a rough side of bacon. From a constitution standpoint, the bacon pig, like the race horse, must secure its chest capacity from depth rather than width of shoulder ana nody. me neck ana head must both be thin and neat, as tiabbincss in these parts is most ob jectionable. Unlike an American farm er, the Danes aim to secure nneness oi bone coarse bone Is very undesirable. Their methods of feeding and the fact that the pigs are usually marketed when between six and seven months of age, accounts lu no small way for the fact that there is no trouble in se curing ample bone to carry the body weight. Having secured the rignt type of pig by careful breeding, the work is but started, as the method of feeding' is most Important. Certain feed stuffs are objectionable in that they have too much of a tendency to produce fat. Corn belongs to this class. The object being to produce rapid nnd steady growth of all pans so thai there will be a good uniform development of lean meat In all parts of the body. Such feed stuffs as oats, barley, skim milk and buttermilk are very much used for this purpose. There are two reasons for their general use in all parts of the country; first, they give the desired results, and. secondly, they are to be had on every farm, j lie pigs are generally confined to small pens while being tattenea anu are marketed at the age of six or seven months when they average about one hundred and seventy pounds live weight. This is one ot tho most desir able weights' from a bacon standpoint. While pigs up to two hundred and ten or twenty pounds oftentimes give good results, cure must be observed in ani mals of this weight else they be too fat, thus producing a lower grade of bacon. Proper Curing of Bacon. The proper curing of the bacon is nn Important point to be considered. Two methods are in vogue at the pres ent time. The first, and the one most commonly used, is the "hand system." by which pumps are used to force the brine into the sides at a pressure ot about sixty pounds to the square inch, and Involving about fifteen to twenty injections, according to the size of the side, and then they are salted before being stacked. The second system Is rather new, and is known as the auto-cure. The apparatus and procedure are as follows; A long cylinder, made of boiler plates, about thirty-two feet long by seven feet in diameter, with one end closed; the other end consists ot a cast iron cover, weighing about three Cancer and Tumor, Ami skin diseases, piles, catarrh, ulcer.", siieressfullv cured by a combination of medicated "lis.

Roy Hates, a young man employed at the work rooms of the Nevada Poultry company, came near bleeding to death yesterday afternoon, as a result of a wound accidentally inflicted by a fellow workman. Bates carelessly placed his hand on the block on which the birds are stuck and quick as a flash the knife descended, passing directly through the center of the hand and severing the large vein on the back. All methods at hand were resorted to to quench the blood but without avail and a large stream literally poured from the wound for some time. A physician was finally secured, however, but did not succeed in stopping the How until the young man was very weak from loss of blood. It is not thought that, the matter will prove serious unless blood poison sets in, and the attending physician hardly fears this.
