serious injuries Monday evening at the
home of W. W. Sikes, where she was
making a call. It appears that she
stepped upon a lorse plank in the walk,

such force that her right arm was
broken at the shoulder. A physician
was called and found the injury a very
serious one from which it will take a

Foley & Co., Chicago, originated
Honey and Tar as a throat and lung
remedy, and on account of the great
merit and popularity of Foley's Honey
and Tar many imitations are offered
for the genuine. These worthless im
itations have similar sounding names.
Beware of them. The genuine Foley's

No Case of Pneumonia on Record.
We do not know of a single instance
where a cough or co'rl resulted in
pneumonia or consumption when Fo
ley's Honey and Tar had been taken.
It cures coughs and colds perfectly, so
do not take chances with some un
known preparation which may contain
opiates, which cause constipation, a
condition that retards recovery from a
cold. Ask for Foley's Honey and Tar
and refuse any substitute oll'ered. F.

A special from Lincoln reports two
prominent Nebraskans, who took a
notion to visit their native land as be
ing "in a bad box." It says: "Wealthy,
respected and happy, Mr. and Mrs.
George Schmidt of McCook decided to
visit Russia, the land of their birth.
Now the family has been broken up
by the Russian police and the author
ities refuse to allow them to leave the
land of the czar.
"They formerly lived in Lincoln and
were married in this city. Monday
Marriage License Clerk Abbott re
ceived a letter from Rev. Gustav L.
Henkleman of McCook, giving the
details of the trouble.
"As soon as the two arrived in
Russia they were apprehended. Mrs.
Schmidt was sent to "ne colony and
the husband to another. The Russians
examined their marriage certificate
and took it from them.
Henkleman wanted a cpyof the
marriage certificate and Abbott fur
nished it. The minister will take the
matter up with the Russian embassy
in Washington. Roth the prisoners
are American citizens. They nave
several children ."
A man who gave the name of John
Marshall and who seemed to hail frcm
no place in particular, was arrested
Saturday evening on the charge of
passing checks of doubtful value. At
the Xastner pool ball a check for $10
was cashed, while a check for $-1. 1.5 was
accepted at the Stroble saloon. Roth
checks were drawn on the Rank of
Dunbar. Communication with the
bank revealed that Marshall had de
posited a certificate of deposit with
them for $70, issued from an Oklahoma
bank. The Dunbar bank was holding
the certificate until the Oklahoma
bank could be heard from. As neither
holder of Marshall's checks offered to
prosecute the man, he was released
this afternoon by the chief of police.

is such a great aid is because
it passes so quickly into
the blood. It is partly di

There had been no '.ess than thirty
six thefts and burglaries in the eastern
suburb of the city, all evidently by the
same hand, and yet the police had
not found the culprit.
I know that the police worked hard
on this case, and that every seeming
clew was carefully followed, and that
they let a boy fifteen years old take all
the credit away from them was not
their fault. I wns that boy, and that
I solved the mystery was owing to
luck. The crimes began about the
middle of Septenilx-r, and I gave them
110 attention until about the 1st of No
vember. Then 1 happened to be talk
ing with a man who had had his push
cart stolen. This, in fact, was at tin
beginning of the thefts, lie mentioned
that the tire of one of the wheels had
been wrapped with wile to tighten it.
On the night of the talk another
house was robbed. It was only two
blocks fr 'in my father's ho'ie, and I
went there, with others. 'Ihe police re
fused all information, but during the.
day 1 was told by a son ol the j,oi!se
holder that tiny had found tracks tin
tier a window. It was an open fall.
and the ground had not yet frozen
Tne tracks were those of a boot, and
tiie sole of one had been mended. I
went up anil down the alley in the rear
of the house with this boy. and in
the dust we found the impress of what
looked to be buggy tires. They were
something else, however they were the
impress of the tires of that pushcart.
At every revolution one of the wheels
left a sort of smudge, and I was jus
tified in believing that it was the tire
that did it.
My theory was that all the stolen
goods had been taken away in the
pushcart, but the case was blocked
right there. Where had they been
take:!? Had I gone to the police with
my theory I should have been ridicul
ed. The detective who can't find a
clew himself doesn't want any one else
to find one. When I had Iain awake a
dozen nights trying to figure things
out luck helped inc. The streets were
still dusty. A barn had been broken
open and a lot of bedding temporarily
stored therein had been taken.
I happened to be passing the place
w hen the discovery was made and the
police telephoned for. There were the
tracks of the pushcart again. In the
dusty road following the cart were
boot tracks, and one of them had a
patch on the sole. I followed them for
a mile straight out into the country
before they were lost.
It was easy to figure that if the thief
was not selling any of his plunder he
was storing it somewhere and that the
country offered a safer place than the
citv. The idea now was to follow
along the road and spot off any likely
looking place. I had my mind made up
that it would be an old barn out about
two miles. I walked out on the road
for five miles and found 110 one but
farmers of honest standing. I look
two crossroads ami followed them for
a distance, but with the same result.
The thief had gone out that road with
the pushcart and the bedding, but
whore had he brought up? The wcath
cr changed, the ground froze, and
all at once the crimes ceased.
Then luck came again. 1 was buy
ing a pair of winter gloves in a store
when a farmer called and asked for a
pair of mittens for a woman. Some
talk followed, and it came out that
she was a Midow who was living next
to him, three miles out of town. He
also asked where he could get a pair
of rubber boo. 4 for her.
I got the idea right then and there
that the widow was the criminal. It
seemed absurd, but yet the idea clung.
A detective would have told me to go
home and soak my head, and a report
er would have laughed me out of bis
room. I chewed over the thing for a
wek. and then something happened.
I had been sent on an errand directly
after breakfast, and I passed a house
which had been burglarized the night
before. There were quite a number of
people about, and the owner was tell
ing them how entrance had been effect
ed and wbat bad been taken. What
hunters aiad farmers call a tracking
snow had fallen during the night, and
the first thing I looked for was the
track of that pushcart.
An alley ran alongside the house, and
there they were. There were also
prints of rubber boots. The alley gate
opened rather hard, and sticking to it
were some small threads of blue yarn.
The farmer had bought blue mittens
for the widow. Taking tip the tracks. I
followed them for two miles before
they were obliterated by travel. I kept
on to the house of the widow and
found it a small cottage, lie; ween the
gate and the road the cart tracks and
the footprints were as plain as day.
I had worked the case as far as I
could, and I now went to the police. I
was sneered at and warned not to
meddle with their business. I went to
the MtfTorer by the last robbery, and as
he was a man of influence and anxious
to get his property back he not only
listened, but Insisted that something
le done. A search warrant was pro
cured, a couple of detectives went out
to the widow's farm, and from an out
door cellar enough stolen property was
dragged to fill several stores.
She had been stealing off and on for
three year. She had always dressed
as a man in her excursions. Until she
stole the pushcart she had tised a
wheelbarrow. Stolen money she had
made use of, but not a stolen article
bad been sold. She had passed for a re
spectable, hard working woman, and
by ber keeping the goods on band her
lawyers made out that she was a klep
tomaniac and got ber a sentence of
two years, when she might have other
wise ot fifteen. M. QUAD.
