FOUR THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1939. KINSELL CASE IS REOPENED Officer Reports New Eri- dence Which May Solve Old Mystery. Although all of the principals are now dead, Detective William H. Peters has uncovered evidence •which may solve the strange disappearance of Mark Kinsell from his Bog Pool home 20 years ago. Peters last week Interviewed a woman with a "bothered conscious" who named a man who killed Kinsell and then threw his body in an abandoned well near Big Pool. Detective Peters said he has been unable to locate officials who vividly recall the tragedy, but he declared Kinsell was known to carry large sums of money and presumably was murdered and robbed The officer 'said'last 'night' he •would seek WPA aid in excavating the abandoned well. Although nothing could remain but the bones, he said, that,would be sufficient to bear _ out the statement of the woman. • At the .time of the disappearance, Big Pool was dragged for miles in efforts to find the body. ' ESCAPED^PftlSONER ASKS TO BE TAKEN BACK Geisler's trained white canary escaped from its home and disappeared into subzero weather outside. -Three hours later it fluttered. •.gainst a window, and pecked vigorously until members of the family let it in. The canary appeared none :he worse for its experience. In lOOOj when most Europeans txpected the end of the world, the Kofsemen discovered a new world —America. LEPKE, THE BOY WHO MADE BAD, HAS DODGED MANHUNTERS 2 YEARS "LEPKE" BU Shifty-eyed big shot . , . By The AP Feature Service NEW YORK, Aug. 17 (£>).—Louis "Lepke" Buchalter is an East Side boy who made bad—so bad that he's worth $30,000 to anyone who turns him in. The Federal Bureau of Investigation calls him one of the most wanted criminals in the United States. Prosecutor Thomas Dewey says the fugitive is waging a war of extermination against members 960 MEN REVEAL HOW TO SAVE MONEY ON WHISKEY! 'OLD QUAKER is Mild! Smooth! Rich in Flavor!"

OQ PROOF CHALTER whose associates vanish and former members of his gang. Not a great deal is known about this shifty-eyed big shot charged with preying on the fur, bakery, garment, and trucking business in the New York area. Two years ago he jumped bail of $10,000 in a racketeering case. Now 25 FBI agents, 25 New York cops and six agents of the Treasury Department's narcotics division (he's been linked to a narcotics ring, too) have full-time jobs-hunting him. Only twice in the two years have police picked up the trail; both times it was hours cold. Dewey thinks one reason he's "been so slippery is that he has plenty of money. And another jg the fact that he is little known. The spotlight has played on most of the underworld big shots who have been killed or caught, but not on Lepke—until just recently. Then a New York business man was murdered. Police said it was because he looked ]ike a former Lepke aide. And Dewey added that in the past two years three of Lepke's former associates have been killed, and two have vanished. Because of this "murder by mistake," Dewey asked that the reward be raised by $20,000. The fugitive is 42, has a wife and son, 18; is about 5y 2 feet tall; weighs-160, has brown hair and eyes, large, straight, blunt-ended nose, and big ears. And the bill for chasing him is given as .$200,000 a year. KEEDYSVILLE Keedysville, Aug. 14.
