RELIEVED OF HIS LUCRE, How Hanfotd Hickson, an Iowa Man, Visited the World's Fair City and Dfopi>ed His Wad. Mad Stomach Trouble and Drank Brandy to Cure It—It is the Old, Old Story. We publish the following report from Chicago of Friday last as a warning to all who are likely to visit the world's fair city^ and who have a "stomach trouble" that is likely to require treat. ment: With bruised and battered face, and tears running down his cheeks upon his long, gray beard, Hanford Hinkson, a wealthy Iowa resident, stood in Justice Woodman's court this morning and told a peculiar story of a drink thatcostbim $3,700 in cold cash. "I am a hotel keeper in Glenwood, Mills county, Iowa, your honor," said Hinkley, who is a tall, fine looking man, with whitening hair and beard. He wore a neiit fitting suit of black clothes that were much Uie worse for contact with saloon sawdust,. "I have been in this city two * weeks, '• continued the old man, "and had sent to Milford for my wife, who was to arrive yesterday afternoon. So I took the trunk checks to go and moot her." But here the old man's courage forsook him, as ho took the checks from his pocket, thought of the lone woman who last evening arrived here and was anxiously looking through the crowds at the union depot for her husband who at that time was lyingin the Dosplaines street police station, filled the old man with grief, and, bowing hist head on the battered railing, he awoke the musty court room with his sobs. After some minutes ho was pacified and continued: "I have had stomach trouble for which I drink brandy. When I arrived at the depot it was early, and I walked across to tho corner of Adams and Canal streets to a saloon and called for a glass of brandy. This was set on the bar. I had no change in my pants pocket, so I reached in my coat pocket and pulled out a wad of bills, $3,700, all I had in the world, and paid . for the drink. The bar keeper told me to rest myself at the table while I drank and I sat down. After finishing the drink I started to go out, but us I passed the bar tho barkeeper called out and 'said: 'It's ray birthday, friend; won't you hav.e a drink with me'?' I said I would, and stopped to the bar, where he handed mo a glass of brandy, and taking 1 one himself, we both drank. After that I knew nothing until this morning." " When I found him,"inturruped the officer, " he was in an alley perfectly stupid and acted as though he had been doped. So I brought him to the station. He—" But here the old man again broke down, crying: "Oh, my wife, my poor Alice; she had no money, and where could she go?" "Take Mr. Hinkson out to the office," commanded the justice, "and have men put on the case to run the thieves down. As for you, Mr. Hinkson, I suppose you have suffered enough without being punished for drunkenness, so I'll discharge you," and tho gray haired old man followed the policeman to the office where his case was put in the hands of detectives. "It was all tho money I had in the world," said the old man to the Register reporter, " and what I am going to do now is more than I know." been too long in the west for even so tempting an offer as that to capture him.

If you wish to see a neat harness shop and one well stocked up with everything in the line of harness, drop in and see him when in town. W. P.
