DOXSEE HAS A STRANGE EXPERIENCE IN STORE AFTER CLOSING TIME. HIS As C. M. Doxsee was leaving his store last Saturday evening he met a man at the postoffice who had come in from the country to get a RIVERSIDE RANGE. As he insisted upon taking the stove home with him he returned to his store (Winkie's old stand) and upon entering was surprised to hear voices in the direction of his shelves. He listened and heard •the door locks talking in a high key. Just then the guns shot out of the case on to the floor. This turned the tin pail and made the slop jar. The axe cried out in hunger, "I want a chop" The wedge nearly split laughing to said told see the oil run. he wasn't afraid The augur a bit, .and the stock to brace up. The bucksaw the broom sweep up and ' down the store and called to the screw-eyes to see. The ice tongs ' has just caught on when the ket- tles cast iron at the heating stoves, who got down below cost to get out of the way. The powder said " I'll be blowed if I can stand so much noise." The paint looked up at the farm bell and remarked, " I don't peal like yon do." Yes, said the glue, " You're a sticker" The range then spoke out, which silenced all others, and said, " Take me or I'll get stove up." Just then they heard' another stove pipe out, " Please take me ;" but the purchaser was an old fisherman and a cowboy and was partial to the RIVERSIDE RANGE, so it was quickly loaded and he started for home. To prevent another outbreak of this kind Mr. Doxsee has rein forced his lines, so you may fee safe in coming to the store. You need have no fears whatever, for the lines are all so well assortec that you will even find a .match safe.

A Curious Situation In Iowa Over the Failure of the Ne\v Jury Law to Connect.

The burning of the di'ug store belonging to him and his partner Ryan, un' doubtedly set on fire, occasioned a removal of the firm from Swea City. It is suspected that Heflin put fecal matter of typhoid patients in the wells, and it is also suspected that a big insurance policy on Eyan's wife was attempted, with a view of performing a serious operation for tumor, from which she would not likely recover. An amusing rascality here was Heflih's bill before the board of supervisors for drugs.for a county patient. It included all the drugs in his store, as large quantities of many of them as all the Algona stores would sell in a year. Chairman hubb thought the bill was a big one and in looking It overcame tonux vom- ica, which he had used some himself. He discovered that Heflin's patient had taken apparently enough nux vomica to do a man five years.. This ,was the beginning of the iuspection,of bills for county doctoring. The Eldora Herald gives a full ac-. count of his'~arrest and crime: Tuesday Sheriff Boylan ran down -Dr. P. F. Eeflin at Charles City! and Wednesday anded him in jail in this city,where-he is likely to remain .for some time to come. The .story back of the arrest is an interesting! and somewhat unusual one, for Dr. Heflin is a smooth scoundrel and he has been traveling at such a rapid gait lately that it would take two men to see him—one pair of Optics wouldn't get a focus on him. The crime for which he is now in jail was perpetrated at the expense of a drug- fist at Aurora, Ills., whose name is J. SVMannlion. Heflin wrote to Mannion and finally induced him.; to buy a lalf interest in a drug store which he said he had purchased in Eldora and )roposed to move to Aldon. Thellli- iols man planked down $350 for a half nterest in the concern. He had faith n Hefiin. That: must have been the same kind removes mountains, for it is impossible to believe that in this age there is a business man of-so confiding a disposition that he will pay a stranger $350 for something he has never seen or investigated. ;• Heflin must be a hypnotist. Anyhow the Illinois man heard no more from the doctor and came out to investigate. Then he found that no such, drug store existed in Alden or ever had existed and Heflin was unknown to the people there, Sheriff Boylan vyas appealed to and went to work with his usual shrewdness and persistence. Heflin was a hard man to locate, but he finally found him atEudd and wired Sheriff W, A. Fail-banks of Floyd county, who arrested and landed him in jail at Charles City. Sheriff Boylan brought him .down Wednesday morning and jailed him. Dr. Heflin is about 38 'years of age and has something of a record. He figured in an alleged "white cap outrage" in Kossuth county last November: He was then running a drug store at Swea City in partnership wich a man named E. F. Eyan. The' people did not like the men or the way they ran their business and warned Heflin to leave town. He regarded the invitation as a pressing, one and went. A short time afterward the building was looted' and burned and a mob gathered and ran Eyan and a friend named Hill out of town after threatening to lynch them, Money, I have unlimited money to loan on long or short time.
