Since the discovery of the body and the disappearance of Dr. Crlppen and his typist. Miss Ethel Clara Lonevo , the Scotland Yard detectives have in quired diligently among those living In the vicinity of the Crlppen homo for some Information that would throw light on the domestic habits and rela tions of the American Doctor and his actress wlfo. Heard Woman's Screams. Nothing was learned until today/ when the proprietress of a small shop at the rear of the Crlppen residence told of hearing n woman's screams nnd pleas for mercy arising seemingly from the cellar In which the burned nnd mutilated corpse was found. Mrs. Crippen disappeared in February last. It was four or five months ago when the screams wore heard , the woman said. Her shop overlooks the little garden b/ck ; / of the Crlppen home. To the police the shopkeeper said : "I had often heard revolver practice in the garden. One night about font or five months ago , I cannot place the time exactly. I was awakened by a woman's cries. It was midnight. The screams appeared to come from Dr. Crlppon's house. I listened nnd heard a woman's voice pleading : "Don't , Oh Don't. " "Don't , Oh don't. " "To me it seemed that the cries were from a woman in the basement of the house occupied by Dr. and Mrs. Crlppon. As nothing developed fur ther I soon forgot the occurrence and did not recall It until I learned of the tragedy discovery. " The Music Hall Artist guild issued nn official statement today declaring that the books and accounts of Mrs. Crlppen , who was treasurer of the guild , were found to bo In perfect or der and that no funds of the organiza tion were missing. London , July 15. While the police authorities were exhausting their re sources today to lay hands on Dr. Hawley - ley H. Crippen , the American , and his woman typelst , physicians were exam ining the mutilated body of his wife with a view to determining the man ner in which the murder was done. The finding in the cellar of a revolver volvor gave weight to the report that the vaudeville artist had boon shot be fore the body was battered into an unrecognizable mass and buried in the cellar of the Crlppon home at Hllldrop Crescent , North London. It also was reported that traces of poison had been found by the * doctors. The latter will present their theories as to the cause of death at an inquest to be held tomorrow. Causes Stir in London. It has been a long time since a mur der case in London has attracted such attention. The fact that the murdered woman was an American , as Is the husband , who is charged with tne crime , has spurred the police to un usual activity.

The /authorities also are searching and following every cle\\ throughout Great Britain. BELLE ELMORE OF NOBLE BIRTH Her Mother Came to America From Poland and Married Again. New York , July 15.

LEASING INDIAN LANDS. Good Land in Tripp County Towns to be Had Very Reasonably. Dallas , S. D. , July 15. Special to The News : It Is the general oplnloi that farm lands allotted to Indians aix allowed to lie'in a dormant condition without Improvement or cultivation This idea Is erroneous , however , as the government encourages the idea of Indian leases and is anxious to get as much of the same In cultiva tlon as Is possible. Sourroundlng the towns of Dallas , Winner , Jordon nnd Carter there are thousands of acres of high class farm land of this kind and the farmer who is paying a higi cash rent In the cast can take ad vantage of the upportunltles. Government leases are made for term of five years and upon very rea sonnblc conditions considering th proximity to good towns nnd with hlg class land to cultivate. The following statistics have jus been sent the department of the it torior at Washington , D. C. , showln acreage farmed In the south half o Trlpp county : Acreage farmed by Indians , 1,55 acres ; acreage farmed by the mixo bloods. 0.825 acres ; acreage farmed by leases , 13,180 acres ; applications for lenses on file , 11,000 acres ; con tracts pending for lease. 8,000 acres. One year ago there was barely 12.- 000 acres of Indian land under ctiltl- vatlJn. Thus Is easily seen the ap preciation of the opportunity to farm this land , now that it la possible to secure the same.

The consul reported th.it no defi- ito action regarding Pittman had ecu determined by the authorities ml he , Olivaries , will exert every of- ort to insure fairness and human 'catment ' for Pittman. When the United States originally tamed of Pittman's arrest , Dr. Ma- rlz assurred Olivaries that the pris- ner would be treated fairly and con- iderately. Constant complaint from Vmerican citizens at Matagalpa , rela- ive to the threats ma < } e against their ves and property by agents of the ladriz government , are being rccelv- d by United States consular ropre- entatlvcs. Consul Olivnrles cabled o the state department that anti-Am- rican feeling in the western part of sicaragua , the section under control f the Madriz faction , is growing more itter.

Lyman Cox , a Northwestern Employe Who Had Been to Omaha to Settle With the Railroad Company for an Injury , Loses His Pile. Long Pliie , Neb. , July 15. Special to The News : While coming home from Omaha on Wednesday night , Ly- man Cox had the misfortune to have $275 taken from his pocket , nnd up to the present time no trace of the moii'\v ' has been received. Mr. Cox was ie- turning from Omaha , where he went to settle with the company for an In jury lie received while working on ( he switch engine. Wishing to make a few purchases before he returned he had his check cashed and placed most of the money in his inside vest pocket. At Norfolk he noticed that the money was in Ills pocket , but ho discovered bis loss as the train was leaving At kinson. The train crew was at once notified ' and a search was made for the ! missing roll , but without success. It is needless to say that the loser of the money could ill afford to do so , as ho has now been away from his work for a long time. Members of the crow and also members of the Elks who were on the train promised to keep n lookout for the missing money , but it Is doubtful If the guilty party will ever be found.

Mitchell was elected president of the company , D. A. Sinclair , secre tary , and C. S.-Roe. treasurer. The capital stock of the company is all paid in and it Is the intention to at once Install the permanent system of four and six inch mains over the en tire city. Winner has been amply supplied for the past ninety days by a temporary system of smaller mains which are extended the length of Main street and in a portion of the residence district , but the rapid growth and development of the city demands that the new mains with extensions be Installed at once. Win ner has an abundance of water of ex cellent quality which Is furnished by a battery of wells. They were thor oughly tested during the three days of celebration of the first of tiie month , when thousands of strangers were the guests of the city , as at Unit , particular time , this part of South Dakota was visited by excessively hot weather. Fire protection Is also ndw afforded the property owners of the city and worry from this source is now eliminated. THE ROSEBUD CROP OUTLOOK. Continues Good , Particularly on the Soil That Was Old. Gregory , S. D. , July 15. SpeciaJ t < The News : The crop outlook for the Rosebud country this year Is one ot the surprises of the northwest. While reports concerning the dry weatlior In other sections have been allowing tip in the newspapers from time 'to time , this section of the country has been favored with good soaking rains at intervals of about a week. As a result the small grain crop here wll come up to the general average of bumper crops raised on the Hosebud ever since tills country was thrown open to settlement six years ago. The corn Is In line shape , strong and com- Ing out wonderfully well. That portion of the Rosebud conn- try lying in Tripp county , which wild thrown open to settlers last year , has suffered from the dry continuous south wind. The soil there Is too new , most of it being sod broken out this sea son , and for this reason dries out veiy quickly. All of the old ground that j was well cultivated , however , will pro- duce good crops In Trlpp county. The j sod crops are in a bad way with the new settlers and few will harvest ! more than a half crop. The dlfforenco In the crops on the well cultivated ' , ; iold ground from that on the sod is ' markedly noticeable , and wherever " ono Hilda a tract of old ground In the ( 3new county , which has had proper at tention , the crop shows up In good 1 shape. If the copious rains of the CONDITION OF THt WtATHtR Chicago , July 15.-The bulletin Is sued by the Chicago station of the United States weather bureau gives the forecast for Nebraska as follows : Oenerally fair and continued warm tonight I and Saturday. ( past three weeks keep up the corn crop i on the sod In Trlpp county will come i out wonderfully , and will yield t heavily. 1 The sod small grain crop In | Trlpp county , however , 1 * doomed and < no amount of rain can now suvo ill. I The new settlers , however , are far from being In n bad way. The North western railway has grading crows at , work on their new extension across Trlpp county reaching to the Mollotto county line at the new town of Car- er. Activity on the part of the Mil- ivaukeo system Is reported In the lortheastern part of the new county , be survey of that railway running west and south across the northern uirtlon of Trlpp county from the new own of Rosolnnd. While the Northwestern Is already it work grading Its line , and the Mil waukee Is planning Its now extension via Hosoland , another railway line hat iast Its covetous eyes on the new ountry , and surveyors are now busy i-unnlng out a line for the now ox- ension of the Burlington system from Uunvell. Neb. , up through Trlpp coun-J" \ y. crossing 'Into Mcllelto county , at be new town of Carter , the terminus of the Northwestorn's new line , nnd mining on across the White river Into Murdo , a town on the Milwaukee's Ino from Chamberlain to the Hint-It lllls district. This new extension of the Burlington will tap a rich section of the country and give the Burlington - ton the Edge on Trlpp county aiid Mel- ette county business , as their line lown the Platte valley will give til- ect connections with Omaha , Lin- ? oln , St. Joseph and Kaunas City. The Milwaukee's new line will give direct connections with Slonx Falls , Minne apolis , St. Paul and Chicago , while the Northwestern's line , now building , will continue the direct connections his country now has with Norfolk , Omaha and Sioux City. Mellette county will undoubtedly be opened to settlement next year , and another vast section of the Rosebud Indian reservation will be added to : he .agricultural area of the state. This opening appears to be the Incen- : lve for the three roads In their race to buUd Into the new country to be developed. As the matter now stands Lhe Northwestern will Ije the flrst line , In all probability , to be running trains to the Mellette county llne Thl railroad development will mean much for the wholesale cities , whose Inter ests will be affected , and will mean a great deal more for the settlers who are now holding Trlpp county land , as the advent of such new extensions is bound to send the price of land in that county , now comparatively cheap , up to a good figure. LADY HOBBLE IN DISTRESS. Being the Story of a Brave Knight and a Scant Skirt. New York , July lo. Lady Hobble came into peril today at Fifth avenue and would have been grievously wreck ed had she not been saved from a tied-in skirt by a gallant knighh Wherefore there Is some evidence that chivalry Is not dead. Motor cars course up and down Uie avenue and at Forty-second street they are checked every two or three min utes by the trafllc police , who make a channel through which pedestrians may cross from one curb to the other , and then the tide of vehicles closes again at a signal. A woman inclined to be portly was proceeding under reefed skirts ? in the temporarily open space when the shrill whistle , meaning to close up the lane , was heard. She started to run , out her gait was so shortened by the tight ness of the skirt in gaskets below her knees that she made scarcely any pro gress and finally tripped and fell. Ever been In a sack race ? Ever rise and then tumble all over yourself and then look around helplessly and wait for the umpire to call "time ? " Well , a hobble skirt is just like a sack oiily worse. The woman who wore It got one French heel In the lower cornice of the skirt and there was a sound' of devastation. She squirmed and kick ed , and the more she tried to get up the more she sat down. Once In awhile her gray suedes , like mice in a panic , peeped out and then ran in again. So It was when a young civil en gineer of this city recognized with j | practiced eye that even If she had a Wying start she could not negotiate the other side in a skirt four feet in circumference with only eight Inches radius. All of whicji ho determined 1 by multiplying the radius of gray suede by the cosine of cobweb stock- Ings. A great red taxlcnb was coming' at full tilt. If the hobbled lady roll- ied back she would bo overwhelmed , If she tumbled forward she would bo struck In just twenty-live of her stops ifrom the western curb. All this was calculated more rapidly than can bo told. The engineer sprang forward , seized the woman about the waist and carried her to the opposite sidewalk , as she kicked fatuously from the periphery of the bound-In skirt as If trying to mark time. She was placed , still distressed , but grate- tful , In a place of safety , and she them thanked her rescuer and said she nov- er , never would wear a hobble again.
