that Henry Gelse, a well-to-do far
mer living northeast of Maxwell, had
painted a German ling black and
whlto colors on a pleco of tin, tncko(i
It to a polo and placed It on the
cupola of his barn. This information
came through Messrs. Knapp and Jor
gensen, of Maxwell, who stated thaf
they had visited tho Gelsn farm, had
gone within fifty feet of tho bam,
and described tho black and white
emblem. The publication of tho Item
naturally attracted attention, and a
committee of Brady people visited the
