Fanners Around Norfolk Have
Been Victims.
S. A. Shlclclo , Claiming to Represent
the "New York Hospital Co. , " of
St. Joseph , Had Grafted Many
Promissory Notes When Exposed.
A smooth medlclno fakn operating
n Ihnlclnlty of Norfolk during the
mtU few wenks , and by means of
vlilcli a largo number of farmers had
ilready boon "taken In" for amounts
anglug between $10 and $100 ! apiece ,
vas nipped Just In time yesterday
uornlng to save a successful comple-
Ion of the grnlV The game was un-
arthed at the Citizens National bank ,
uid the fakir. S. A. Shields , together
vlth two assistants , left the civy on
he noon train. Just before his do-
mrturo , Shields surrendered a note
; lven him by one of the prominent
armors north of Norfolk for $19f > .
Shields and his gang claimed to
represent Vhe "Now York Hospital
company , " of St. Joseph , Mo. , a lie-
Itlous ilrm. They took orders for a
series of home treatments , promised
o ship the medicine and received
lotes In payment. They were clever
alkers , swell dressers and persuasive
to a degree. The game worked nd-
nlrably well and not a few of , the
evol headed farmers approached , fell
n''o the trap and signed their names
.o promissory notes for heavy
unounts. It was through the extra-
military large amount secured from
> uo well-to-do bank patron , that the
Citizens National people accidentally
llscovorod Vbo game.
Shields had gone into the country
md persuaded a farmer of means
lint ho would doubtless die If ho
failed to take medicine put up by the
Now York Hospital company. The
farmer gave a note for $195 and ac
companied Shields to the bank to give
insurance that everything was
straight. The bankers called the
'armor Into the rear room and asked
ilm If he was perfectly sure ho knew
what ho was about. When they re
turned , Shields was rather angry nt
lie Interruption of his affairs.
"We've decided , " said Assistant
Cashier Pasowalk , "that we'd like to
telegraph St. Joseph and llnd out
tha't your Ilrm Is all right. " Shields
was apparently satisfied with this ,
and agreed to pay the bill. Then ho

for Battle Creek.
Meanwhile 'chc bank had wired an
Inquiry to the hospital and Incident
ally to the Tootle-Lemon bank , asking
as to the firm. Within forty minutes
a reply came from the bank seating
that there was no such hospital com
pany. Late in the afternoon a mes
sage came from "Tho New York Hos
pital company , " stating that S. A.
Shields was 'choir authorized repre
sentative. Something was evidently

lie asked.
"Yes , " replied the banker , "we did. "
And a smile of satisfaction appeared
upon the Impostor's face , as he drew
his noves out to bo cashed.
"Wo heard from St. Joseph , and
we'll bo unable to do business with
you , " the banker continued. Shields
demanded an explanation , with a
brazen bluff , and the two telegrams
were produced.
Gives up the Game.
With proof positive that his game
was up , the medicine man gave In
completely. "I'm all In , " ho admitted ,
"you're too many for me. " Ho ad
mitted that ho had gone to Battle
Creek and wired to a friend , Instruct
ing him to answer In the name of the
( Inn. "I've learned something , " he
said , "and the nexv fellow won't catch
me that way. "Well , " he went on.
"It's just a game that we're all playIng -
Ing at. and this time you've beat me

Diamond His Salvation.
Then the bank demanded the note
to pevent its sale elsewhere , and
Shields reluctantly gave It up. With
all of his prospects gone the grafter
was In a tight place , for ho needed
money to get out of town. Ho claimed
that he had a deposit In St. Joseph
and a message upheld his statement
but there was no one to Identify him
and he was playing in hard lines
again. A huge diamond ring whicl
ho wore , was Shields' final salvation
It was a mammoth stone , ueautlfullj
cut , and proved to bo a perfect one
Glancing at this , Mr. Pasowalk offeree
to take It as a forfeit on a check
An Intsant later the ring had changet
hands and Shields was enabled to llq

The stone Is valued at $110 and lb

mutilated In the long keeplnc. and
perhaps the lines and rhymees are
not absolutely accurate , bu't the sen

That we Hhull see him elsewhere , and

Why we were bid. How long I am

I have not the least notion. None ,

Was ever told when ho should come

But every now and then there bursts
forth on
The soiiff nnd mirth. n. lamentation.
A sound of shrieks and sobs , that

Dumb in our breasts ; and then , ome
