How He Passed a Bogus Draft.
A Masonic ring and a' Masonic emblem -
blem attached to a scarf pin were the
means by which A , F. Danan passed a
bogim draft on George II. Burton , a
Norfolk Jeweler. Ho had been making
other towns west of hero and worked
a unique game on Jewelers nt Clear-
water1 and Pllger , "where " It Is reported
bogus drafts have been passed by this
crook , who > finally was landed by the
Entering the Burton Jewelry store
Just * before the banks , closed Wednes
day afternoon , Dnnan.told Mr. Burton
that he had Just received n telegram
from bis wife In Pennsylvania saying
that Ills son was one of the graduates
lof his school and ho wished to send
- him a graduation gift in the form of n
watch or other Jewelry. Mr. Burton
put before the crook /i / case of gold
Watches. The swindler , while exanv
Inlng the timepieces , took extraordi
nary precautions to display his Ma
sonic ring and pin , which were imino
tllntcly taken notice of by Mr. Burton
who is a Mason. Dnnnn soon took uj
a Watch which was valued at ? 1.50 ! )
lleaching into his pocket ho laid dowr
ili" > In paper money , saying :
"That's all the ready cash I now
ihave , but here is a draft I'd like yoi
lo cash. " lie then pulled out thedraf
for $37.50 , already filled out am
signed by "A. F. Danan" on a Pennsyi
vanla bank. Mr. Burton , knowing tin
banks had closed , asked the creel
what lodge of Masons he belonged to
He was informed that it was a lodg
in England. Danan said he was repre
sentlng a Pennsylvania oil llrm am
.was about to open oillccs in this city
Mr. Burton took the $15 In bills , cnsli
cd the draft , paid Danan the changi
and handed him the watch. Danni
left on the night train for Fremont
In the meantime Mr. Burton grew SUE
plclous nnd with the aid of Constabl
Flnkhousc endeavored to again get li
touch with the stranger who , howevei
f was gone.
The fraud was kept secret even fror
the chief of police , but II. S. Ovei
s ocker , who went to Fremont to ider
tlfy the watches stolen from his plac
by the two otlter crooks , identified th
.wnteh . as Burton's property nnd th
[ Norfolk authorities were advised b
the Fremont sheriff that they ha
.Danan In custody. When caught D :
mm had in his possession n number c
Watches and $246 in cash. Burto
le said he would not prosecute Danan
Jie can get his money back.
It Is believed County Attorney Nlcl
pis will prosecute anyway , if the ma
.Is still in custody.

Richard had already entered the
cage which brought to safety his bro-
ther , Albert , and n number of other
miners , when the boss ordered him out
to spread the alarm.
According to Albert , who is here
with his mother , Richard and anoth
er boy were the only youths In the
cage. The rest wore all men. The
cage was about to start upward to
safety when the boas' attention was
, called to die fact that ( lie minors In
| j other Bhul'ta weto not nollllcd that
the inltio was In danger , some believ
ing it was not a surlotm lire.
Orders "Dicky" Out of Ca jc.
lie Immediately ordered Richard
and his companion out of the cage.
Being familiar with the mine they ran
all around spreading the alarm. In
the meantime the boss and his men ,
Including Albert , the only boy , shot
upward to safety , while Richard and
hid companion perished below with
tile remainder of the 300 miners.
There wore many heartrending
scenes after the disaster , says Mrs.
Buckles. Men anil women lost their
minds , but as weeks went by nil hope
of saving their loved ones was given
up and the people calmed down. One
of the most touching HcenoH.says Mrs.
Buckles , was the day .when some of
the miners we.ro found by rescuing
parties and brought out alive.
After the mouth of the mine was
unsealed , undertaken ! went below and
the bodies were prepared there. When
- they reached the top the only means
of Identlilcatlon was by the faces and
hair , the remainder of the bodies be
hlg wrapped up. They were laid down
under a large tent , side by side , and
those who believed they had lost rela
tives wore allowed to Identify them.
Mrs. Buckles Identified Hlchnrd In an
Instant , his small body lying beside
those of old time miners.
The company , she says , has settled
with the families of the miners satis
factorily and Cherry is again very
quiet. The remains of Richard were
interred beside his father at Peru , 111. ,
to which city Mrs. Buckles will go
later to live. Beside Albert , Mrs.
Huekles has n daughter , Charlotte ,
who Is also here with her mother.

"Penelope. " Heltlna answered. "I

"But 1 have always borrowed from
enelope , " was Bettlnn's explanation.
'Wo have been such good friends. "
" 1 wonder that Penelope has stood
t as long as she has. " 1 said. "Did
you know that the chiffon was torn on
hat evening coat when yon returned
t , Bettlna ? And the night you wore
Penelope's plumed hat , It rained and
the dampness took the curl out of the
feathers ? "
"Oh , well , " Bettlnn excused. " ' lend

"But yon are not us careful ns Pone

your coat , it would have come back to

It IH best to keep lo your own tilings. "

acquired thu habit of borrowing until
it was positively undermining hit
strength of character. She is an < \

with her own possessions , she is con
stantly encroaching upon the br-lonn

she has borrowed money. She Is micli
a dear little maid that everyone hatot

Yet Bettina , like many other girls
is , in a small way , a criminal. To nsl

stamps n man or a woman as not trust

Penelope is kind-hearted , and like my
