THRILLING EXPERIENCE OF TWO
NARROWLY ESCAPED DEATH
For More Than Thirty-Six Houro They
Wandered In the Locality Known as
"Hell , With the Fires Durned Out. "
Finally Found Narrow Path ,
A report from PrcHho , S. D. , says
hat two Iowa men , E. T. Bradshnw ,
aged CO , and John Turpln , ngod GC ,
mil a thrilling ndvcnturo in the famous
lad Lands region of western South
Jukota , and narrowly escaped death
> y hunger and exposure.
They were searching for homesteads
uid Hot out on foot from the llttlo
frontier town of Kadoka with the In-
eiitlon of walking through to Dakota
City , another llttlo frontier settlement
ind locating there. During the after
noon of the day they sot out the sky
became overcast with clouds. They
were unable to see the sun and lost
In attempting to guide themselves
by some bad land mounds they wan-
.lered Into the bad lands proper and
were unable to find tholr way out of
that strange region , which years ago
was referred to by Gen. Alfred Sully ,
the veteran Indian fighter , as "hell ,
with the fires burned out. "
The two weary nnd alarmed men
finally reached a deserted and par-
tlnlly demolished cnbln , where they
took refuge. There they remained
throughout the night , the following
day nnd the next night , with nothing
to eat but ono small bird they suc
ceeded in shooting. They saw some
range cattle grazing in the vicinity ,
and in the effort to escape dentil by
starvation they endeavored to Bhoot
ono of the animals.
But Uio wild range cattle were so
akery" that It was found Impossible
to got near enough to any of thorn to
shoot and kill thorn. Had they been
mounted it would have been an easy
matter to have approached the nni
mals , which are accustomed to seeing
cowboys on horseback , but readily
take alarm when approached by nny
ono on foot
On the third day of their Involunta
ry Imprisonment the two old men
again made an effort to find their
way out of the bad lands , and this
time they succeeded In finding a nar
row path which is the only means of
exit from that part of the bad lands.
Had they not discovered the path by
the merest chance they would have
perished. After a weary Journey they
finally reached civilization once more ,
moro dead than alive , but thankful
to have escaped with their lives.
LAKES TO THE GULF.
Ship Canal From Lake Erie to the
It Is announced that the surveys
for the proposed canal from Lake Erie
to the Ohio river have been completed.
Land for the right of way Is now be

the big undertaking Is complete It
will bo possible for lake vessels to
cnrry iron ore direct from Lake Su

district and to send coal from the
vestern Pennsylvania mines to uppoi
It will require about six years to
complete the task and an expenditure
of no less than $75,000,000. The pro-
) osed canal will bo 133 miles In
cngth , 177 feet in width and 13 feet
loop. A special line of boats will bo
constructed for this traffic. The cana
vlll follow the natural water way as
icarly as possible. It will conned
with Lake Erie at a point a few miles
west of Ashtabula , run southward
through Creek valley , the Mnhonlng
Ivor nnd Beaver creek nnd join the
Ohio river at Beaver , Pn. , about thlrtj
nlles southwest of Plttsburg. The cana
will pass through Youngstown , Ohio
New Castle , Beaver Pa. , and by means
of the Ohio and Monongahela rivers
will touch scores of furnaces and other

HERIFF MALCHOW IN CHARGE
The Sheriff Takes His Prisoner
Through the City on the Evening
Train and Has Him In the Cumlng
County Jail Before Mronlng.
[ From Friday's IJnlly. ]
Sheriff Malchow of Cumlng county
assed through the city last night hav-
ng In charge James Robloy , wanted
i Beenier for a crime committed
pen the person of a llttlo girl near
hat town. The sheriff brought his
rlsonor from Wayne- the evening
rain and took him directly through

Norfolk Junction to West Point , where
lie man was lodged In Jail. Robloy
ppcars to bo a man of fifty years of

amlly. The charge against him is
hat of outraging a girl twelve years

ivlng a short distance from Boomer.

lo immediately made his escape on
oot , with no coat or vest , and was
aptured "Wednesday evening by the

NEW RAILROAD RULING CAUSES
SMALLER ONES TO QUIT.
PASSES ARE NOT OBTAINABLE
Former Competition for Theatrical
Business and Free Passes Has Ceas
ed Big Factor In Non-Employment
of Show People.
Failure to secure n certain percent-
nge of free rnllrond transportation Is ,
say those Interested , the biggest fac
tor In the non-employment of so many
show people of different classes. Hun-
Ireds of the smaller show companies
mve been forced off the road.
Was Heavy Item.
For years it hns been customary
for the railroads , in their competition
! or theatrical business , to deal very
Iberally with owners and managers ol
companies and the different booking
and producing syndicates. Before Jan
uary 1 , last , all advance agents were
furnished passes , and It was not un
usual to give the big companies from
: hreo to five free tickets. Of course
: ho smaller roads were the heaviest
.llsponsers of passes , but the theatric
al business being such a heavy Item
t often forced the larger transporta
tion systems to meet their smaller rl
vals In the way of free passes.
Question of Cleverness.
The Item of furnishing a certain
number of passes to advance agents
mnnngers nnd others wns nlwnys fig
uretl In with the earnings and expens-
so of show companies , and other routes
of the entertainers were Influencei
by free transportation. It was merely
a question of the cleverest showman
to secure the most free transportation
and the retention of positions by ad
vance representatives have frequently
depended on ability to get the mos
out of the railways.

OF THE SITUATION.
SO SURE OF HIS ELECTION

"William J. Bryan , I bollovo , will bo

banker , was first to go. Tuberculosis
fastened upon him and his lifo soon
was done. The mother shortly fol
