A crook, who gave his came as George Bradley and his home at Lo- ganspoi't, attempted to bilk Julius Faulk, the Peru merchant, to the tune of 125 on a bogus bank check Tuesday night, but failed. Bradley Is described as short and heavy set, wore a dark suit of clothes, (the coat and vest double breasted), and a broad rimmed black felt hat. The fellow selected a suit of clothes, a hat and a pair of shoes, all amounting to about 814. The clerks who waited upon him thought that he acted rather suspiciously because he was so easily suited. When he presented the check to the cashier the latter concluded to investigate the genuineness of the paper before paying the difference. Although he said the Citizens' bank of Peru had accepted two other checks, the fellow remained but a few moments after the cashier had left on a tour of investigation. He walked down the street and disappeared up an alley. Bradley had been working for a citizen of Peru, named Asa Hlnter, for two months, and forged the latter's name to the check, Yesterday Mr. Faulk found that Hloter had no money in bank. A representative of the Pharos made inquiry at police headquarters and of a number of citizens, but failed to find anybody acquainted with Bradley, and it is thought he located himself hers in order to boost his fraud along. THE MARSH FIRES Dolnr Great Damages In the JKankahee Yaliey.

A Snpreme Court Decision That la of Considerable Interest. The supreme court in the case of Julius Schleuter vs. Miry Canatay, affirmed the ruling of the Marion circuit court lu awarding the child of Schleuter to its aunt. The circuit court in its decision held that the right of a father to have the custody ot his children is not of such force as to give him entire control of the children, when he and his wife lire not proper persons to raise them. Judge Monks, who wrote the opinion, s&ld in part: "In a general sense, a father is entitled to the custody ot his minor heir; this not on account of any absolute right of the father to such custody, but because the law presumes that It Is to tne interest of sach child to be under the care of its natural protector for maintenance and education. In controversy for the custody of a child, whether between them or either of them and third persons,the welfare of the child is paramount to the claims of either parent, and the order of the court should, in all such cases, be made with regard alone to the best Interests of the child."

The test this season has been greatly hanalcapped by the extremely dry weather that has prevailed nearly all the time since the seed was planted.
