Re- At the-next term of the United States court, at Fort Dodge, an interesting case will come up for trial, tfhe case will come under the revenue laws and Uncle Sam will be after the guilty party. The Messenger tells the story as follows: C. G. Lund, who lives near Badger, returned less than a year ago from a visit to his native land in Sweden. It seems that he had sold some property in Sweden, and had not collected in full for the same. There was yet due $38* which ho was expecting on every mail. It failed to come, and he became anxious and wrote concerning it. He was informed that the money had been sent, and he had receipted for it. He employed a detective, who unearthed the peculiar state of affairs. A man of the name of 0. G. Lind is also said to receive his mail at the postofflce, and through mistake was given Mr. Lund's letter. The draft was taken to one of the banks and'Mr. Lind had himself identified by his brother. He signed the name of C. G. Lund and was given the $88. A warrant was issued for his arrest and the United States officers took him in charge. He gave bail for his appearance at the next term of United States court, when he will be tried for forgery. A Gasoline Barrel Explodes. The Bancroft Register tells of an incident which occurred in one of the north end towns last week. A young man opened a barrel of gasoline just shipped in and emptied it into the tank, and then fired the empty barrel down the cellar-way. A few minutes later he went down into the cellar for something, and as it was rather dark down there he struck a match by which to guide his movements. By chance the recently emptied gasoline barrel was standing within a few feet of him when he ignited the lucifer; he hadn't noticed the barrel before, but he did then. The Register says: There was a report that sounded like a siege gun, or an Emmetaburg lawyer kissing an Algona old maid. The head of the barrel shot across the cellar and went through the stone foundation and the flame that followed in its wake rivaled Paine & Sons' Sebastapol. The blowing up of Hellgate was nothing compared to the barrel blow-up, and the young man's raven locks turned white before he realized that the only damage done was the loss of $1.25 on the "busted" barrel. The proprietor' of the store will hereafter buy his gasoline in hermetically sealed cans, not to be opened by purchasers until they are at least three blocks from the store. A Horrible SUootlug Accident, The three-year-old daughter of John Munch was killed near Corwith last week. The Britt News gives the details: Mr. Munch and his oldest children, two girls, and a boy nine years old, were doing the chores about the barn for the night, and the boy went to the house to get warm. Finding his mother out, he thought be would have some fun with the younger children. He got three of them in a room and taking down the gun, pointed it at them and pulled the trigger. The gun was loaded the night before and when he pulled the trigger it went off, the shot taking effect in Artie's shoulder, tearing a frightful wound clear through her little body. Coming out it seems to have tended upward and torn away part of her chin and lower Jaw. At last accounts she was still alive and the doctor says there is a chance that she may recover, though he fears blood poisoning. Bank Kobber Captors Want Pay.
