Yours for business, The man who attempted to beat the Swea City bank on a forged deed to Wm, Landman's land IB caught. He was, arrested at Sioux Rapids, Clay county, for the same kind of a swindle, and Cashier Anderson of Swea City went over Saturday and identified him. He gives his name as Burns. He will bo sent up over there and will doubtless then be brought to Kossuth to stand trial here. Burns here came to the Swea City bunk nnd wanted a loan of $1,100 and sent his deed for record. A. D. Clarke noticed it among the transfers and happen bd to meet Land man and asked him about it. As soon as he learned the truth he notiiled the bank in time to keep the money from being paid. Burns evidently caught on, for he did not show up to got the money. The Spencer Reporter gives the following detailn of Burn's attempt in Clay county: On Nov. 4 the said Burns negotiated a loan of $1,600 through the Peterson bank on a warranty deed to a half section of land situated on the south half of Sec. 27, Hordland township. The deed purported to be signed and acknowledged by the owners of the land, Alfred Prueh and wife, of Freeport, 111., before Ed. Keeth, a notary public In and forDubuquocounty, Iowa, on Oct. 12, 1898. The application for the loan was accepted, nnd Burns received $200 in cash and a deposit slip for the balance to be paid when the abstract of the lurid was perfected. Meanwhile Messrs. Pillmore & Parker, the proprietors of the bank, became suspicious of Burns and communicated with Mr, Pruoh. A telegram received from him last Thursday stated that the deed wns forged and nlso that his wifo, whose name was affixed to the deed, had boon dead for four years past, A search was immediately instituted to ascertain tho whereabouts of Burns. He was located at Sioux Rapids Thursday and Constable Dowling of Peterson went over that evening and made the arrest. Tho prisoner waved examination before Justice DeWitt and was brought to this city Prid/iy and placed in jail to await the action of the grand jury. QRAMENZ GETS A NEW BRIDE. ITred Exhibits CoiumeiidnbJoCoiirnKe In DrowiiliiK Sorrow mid Grout Promptness In Uoti-lovlng FaJJon Fortunes. Fred Grarnenz is married. He did not get Ida Krueger after all, and he now has a marriage license for sale cheap. This time Fred did not trust to any legal proceedings to capture a bride. He secured her first and then bought his license. Fred learns wisdom from experience. Last week Thursday he appeared at the clerk's office with Minnie Walter of Lotts Creek. He told Mrs. Crose that he had one license "but it didn't work." C. C. Samson was sitting by and he says: "You brought your girl right along with you this time, did you?" Pred assented with a wise look which said plainer than words that he might be fooled once, but could not be caught twice by the same trick. Having his bride and his license Fred repaired to LuVerne where the ceremony was attended to, each step in matrimony being taken this time in its proper order. Fred did not say whether he regretted not getting Ida or not, and his new bride did not indicate whether Prod's previous matrimonial efforts had occasioned any jealousy in her bosom. BAILEY'S VIEW OP THE CASE. Algona has a veretable " Prisoner of Chillon" deal. Old Krueger, a Dutchman who has gone through more drunks and come out less than half dead than any man in Kossuth county, bus a daughter who wanted to go to the heart and home of one Fred Gramenz, for good and for bad, for better and for worse, to have and to hold, etc., etc. That wasn't all. Fred wanted Miss Ida to come, and he gave a dollar for a license, and then came the "Chillon act." The old man locked the girl in the donjon keep of the prairie castle, hoisted the draw bridge, let the portcullis fall, and told Pred to go to the devil. He immediately started for the clerk's office in Algona to get his money back, but Crose isn't built that way and told him to get the girl on a writ of "Corpus Christ!." Fred started the minions of the law on the trail and brought In Old Blackboard and his daughter. The girl looked at Fred and said "Ugh, Ugh." And then Grose, thinking his dollar was gone, took a hand In. At last account he and Fred were both trying to persuade Ida to let the ceremony proceed, with what success we haven't learned.
