f ffl C, L UCTfl It Gfows So as the Facts Dothe Estate Shows. of the PeeutiaHtte§ of th« Mfifi— Mow tie Kspt Mis Business to Administrator Joslyn has tieeti gothg over the assets q{ the Liihd estate and has &tt Ittve&tOfy tnade. the value, of course, depebda oa the ftppralsemeht. Thefe &fe 10,000 bushels of cOfti, fat-m machlnel-y, equities in land, etc., but in ail not mofe than $5,000, The home faftfl is mortgaged for $18,000, but there is probably a margin of $10*000. The stock, except horses, was turned over to Mr. Nelson by Mr. Lund to pay hitn. Mr, Nelsoa had become alarmed and kept at Mr. Lund until he got a bill of sale. Se is still a loser by over $600. The household furniture was all hought. by Mrs. Lund with her money or was given to her by her family. When Mrs. Lund was allowed to know the facts, which WHS not until after the papers were out last week, she was prostrated. She htid no suspicion of such a state of affairs. She at first declared that she should turu all the insurance money In to pay the claims, hut friends will dissuade her from that course. It would be but a iflrop in the bucket, and , leave her and the liUle girl penniless. It is one of the amazing -features of the case that Mr. Lund wan a.ble to keep all his doings a secret from bis wife, his brother, his partners a'nd clerks. He always had someone in his office, and they had free access to his safe and books. He confided in nobody, always kept a "stiff upper lip," and deceived most those who knew him best. 'The friendly feeling which a present memory of his many good traits caused last week has gradually "faded as the systematic character of his fraudulent transactions becomes clearer. He was the most remarkable forger there is any record of. For ten years he has forged deeds, mortgages, mortgage releases, chattel mortgages, -and sold papers without a breath of suspicion, being all the time honored in many ways by the very men he was taking in. It is absolutely unaccountable. Mr. RUBS holds a bundle of chattel mortgages representing $123,000. In that entire bundle there are no two signatures similar, and yet all made by Mr. Lund. The skill in forging, the secrecy of the work, and more than all the confidence inspired are out of the range of ordinary human experience. ' The Impression among some is that Mr. Lund did not speculate on the board of trade. They think his system of fraud ate him up. He paid the interest on all the bogus mortgages regularly. Every new instrument made the load that much heavier, and the interest must be paid or an investigation would come at once. The big expense of the farm, his bad luck, andtfhe awful burden of interest account for' a very large sum of money. Mr. Lund's friends believe that he began his fraud to tide over a little pinch, with the full intention of paying off. He lost at every venture, the loans had to go on, the interest on them soon made others necessary, one step down followed another until he was overwhelmed. Attorneys are being secured by many parties with interests involved, and the whole matter will be thoroughly sifted. REMEMBER that Ur. J. W. Quinn claims that three-fourths of all headaches are caused by eye strain. Have your eyes exam. Ined. Costs you nothing. With us July 20 lor one week.

Studley woke up and saw a man in Ills room going through his coat, He saw him because there was a lighted lamp in an adjoining room. Without waitipg ft moment he jumped out of bed and, made for his visitor, and the visitor at the first noise made for the lamp, which he succeeded in blowing out. He then backed up in the dark' ness and Mr, Studley, who Iwd secured a phair and raised it over bU heaS, advanced on him. IB. moving he hit a table and knocked off a water pitcher and some glasses and the noise aroused Mrs- Studley, who asked what the matter wa.9. Mr. Studley did not want to answer, for the burglar did pot know where be was standing, But finally be had, to njake some sign, and with that began striking about in the bopes of bitting hie man, The latter gliding away went by Mrs, Studley, wbo rabbed, biro by the arm.

It was at Sheldon last week. The Mail says " the clowns Were funny without behig bores." Great is Ringling. The Wesley Reporter makes a suggestion as to the Lund deeds: All who are losers should call a meeting and unite on some specific action, and employ a competent attorney who would take charge of the entire matter. This would save much expense, as each case is almost counterpart of all others. We don't want to take advantage of the Republican's $30 price on 5,000 county fair supplements to discuss what the county board proceedings would cost, but put the price at $40 and the cost for a year would be less than $250 for a circulation in every paper in Kossuth, whereas the present cost is nearly $400 for circulation in two papers. In three papers it would be nearly $600. There is no good argument against publishing the board proceedings as a supplement, THE TWIN PITIES. Minnesota may be truly called a state of lakes, for within her borders there is said to be ten thousand of them. There is no one thing that nature has created for man that gives more true enjoyment, especially during the sum T mer months, than a nice, little inland sea, One may camp upon its green wooded shores, row upon its placid bosom, plunge beneath its sparkling depths, and receive from it in many ways those invigorating and health- giving properties which nothing else can give to a tired body or over-taxed brain. In the vicinity of St. Paul and Minneapolis are many beautiful bodies of water, but I will not attempt to describe each one separately, that would require too much time and space. A description of one must suffice for all. • We have Minnetonka, Calhoun, and Lake Harriet near Minneapolis, and White Bear, Lake Phelan and Como near St. Paul. All are lovely places, and what nature has left undone towards making them beautiful man and money has added. One may sit in the pavilion on an evening at any of these lakes and listen to the sweet music of the band as it floats across the water, watch the white boats as they glide in and out among wooded islands, see the bicycler as he wheels around the boulevard and' comes to a stop, wheezing and puffing like mad, his face like a haymaker's, his back like a bow, but he is nevertheless receiving a benefit physically, and though he may_ have a bicycle face and a few bruises he has no doctor's bills to pay and besides he is having a whole lot of . from Sew York city ta saa Cat., and if the wheel continues in fAvttf no doubt sttdh a f flftd Will be Cdft' structedi Bring alafig 1 you? wheel when you dome to the Twin Cities and enjoy yourself.
