Driven Out of Ledyard, He Turns Up iu Fairmont—General County News Notes. "Dr." Mote, late of Ledyard, is said to be faking up in Minnesota. Dr. Mote had a narrow escape from the clutches of the law here. He came to Ledyard as a physician, but word followed him that his license to practice had been revoked. County Attorney Raymond got out a warrant for him, but he got wind of it in some way and Sheriff Christensen did not catch him until be had crossed the state line. As the offense is not one for which a requisition would be issued by the governor, the matter was dropped. The Fairmont News notes the doctor's presence: It is reported to the News on what we believe to be good authority that a fakir calling himself Dr. Mote is traveling over the country and preying on the sick. He represents himself as having a hospital at Ledyard, lowaj which we are informed is .false, as he was driven from that town. \Vesley News, "The telephone poles have been distributed between Wesley and German Valley. There is talk of a 'phone to Ger mania also. A Britt man points with pride to the •fact that his wife has worn one bonnet for 25 years, The feelings with which the wife points to that husband have not yet been described.

Prod Myers Suicides. Burt Monitor: The name at the head of this article may not be familiar to all. He was a young man of some 26 years of age, and worked on the 'arm last season for Oscar Naudain and .ast spring for George Patterson. He .ately went to Ames and was attending College, A press dispatch sent from Ames says he shot himself in the temple and adds that " he was despond- nt." The general supposition here seems to be that he was disappointed in a love affair. He joined the Odd Fellows here and when the word was received, which was on Wednesday, G. V. Slade went down to see about matters. The parents of the unfortunate boy reside in Milwaukee, but Mr. Slade sent back word that the remains would be interred at Ames, Wlilttemore Clmmploii.
