One Barnm at Humboldt Makes tfgty Threats and is Arrested—Other Notes of the Week. NEWS OF THE NORTH WEST, ha te ^ eht ' w ? a ln town Monday, Mr, UJJMUUJ. iiujuuiuuTTUOii Pleth looked ^thef conspicuous as though he was about to kill. We have noticed this quite often among the Lednard boys who come in our midst in this manheVi and would say that it creates a feeling among us that gives them a bad reputation, Boys, when you come to Germania you should net like gentle* tletrien and be men. Al. 'Adams writes lip the Grose blue sky case at Humboldt in the Independ" ent and gives the version of a disinterested spectator : On Thursday morning the criminal case of State vs. J. H, Grose was called for trial. The defendant in this case was indicted by the grand jury last term for obtaining property under false pretenses. Grose is one of the notorious "Blue Sky Note" gang of confidence men and all-around swindlers of Algona. Ho was charged with palming oil some worthless notes upon Mr. Babler, a farmer of Lake township, who parted with a valuable span of young horses on representations as to the value of the paper. The defendant, on being arraigned the first day of the term, stated to the court that he had no money to employ counsel and indicated a choice of D. F. Coyle, who was appointed by the court to conduct his defense. W. L. Smith, county attorney, for the state. Quite a number of witnesses from outside the county- were in attendance upon this case, among them the county recorders of Wright, Kossuth and Pocahontas counties, also Harvey Ingham, Mr. Starr and other persons from Algona, to testify as to the character of defendant as to truth and veracity. The jury, without very long deliberation, returned a verdict of guilty. Grose is said by those who know him to be a very smooth member of the swindling fraternity, and the evidence of the Bablor transaction would seem to warrant that conclusion. Ho is a very innocent, candid appearing man, some forty years old, and testified that he had been teaching school as his chief occupation for twenty-one years and is said to be a very good teacher. His counsel presented a motion for a new trial, which was over-ruled by the court and will probably be the basis of an appeal to the supreme court. •\Vautecl to See His Girl. An incident occurred Saturday at Humboldt which shows how small a consideration life is when feelings of the heart interfere. It is reported that C. H. Brown had forbidden one Frank Damm io come on his premises, but Frank wanted to come, and for that matter, did come for the purpose of seeing a young lady doing housework there. Saturday Damm came and Mr. Brown talked with him a few moments when the former became angry and threatened to take the lives of Mr, Brown and Frank Simmons, who were present at the time. Affairs now became active and Mr. Damm was as : sisted out of the yard by a couple of blows from the strong right arm of Frank Simmons. At this point, as the story is told by the Republican, Damm remarked'that "he'd fill their hides so full of holes that they wouldn't hold pumpkins," and it was for this remark and the action preceding that he was arrested. The examination occurred before Justice Taft, and Damm was bound over to keep the peace until the matter should go before the district court. _ _ Taken Seriously 111 at Wesley. The Reporter Bays: John Ingalls, deputy sheriff of Elmore, Minn., drove over this way yesterday in search of a man who had stolen a wagon, and when within a few miles of town he was taken seriously ill with paralysis of the muscles, and when he arrived in town appeared to be under the influence of liquor and was taken to a livery stable, As he is an Odd Fellow in good standing he asked for the brethren here, whom he found quite numerous. Dr, Kenney was summoned and-ffronoun'ced the man very sick and he was brought to the hotel, where everything possible was done for him. He is much better today and will likely be able to. return home tomorrow. The Odd Fellows are giving him every attention, Burglary at A bold robbery took place at the M. & St. L. depot at LuVerne last Friday night.
