Detroit , July 12. Up to noon today
three bodies had been found In the
ruins of the villages of Ausable and
Osconda , which were destroyed yester
day by forest ilres.
The destruction yesterday of the

and the $500,000 fire at Alpena , which
was not due to forest fives , probably
caused exaggerated reports of heavy
. damage and possible loss of life from
forest fires In the northern counties of
the southern peninsula of Michigan.

Inac railroad from Posen to Onaway
In Sheboygan , suffered damage , but
many towns reported burning are safe.

Madison , Neb. , July 13. Special to
The News : The oft repeated state
ment that the pure food law Is a joke
was disproved in one instance , at
least , in this city yesterday , and 1
should be a warning to all future of
fenders. Otto Llndstadt , residing sev
eral miles west of Madison , brought
ten dozen eggs to the Madison Butter
and Egg store , which , when candled
by the proprietor , Jesse Llvingliouse
were rejected as Impure and set aside
to be disposed of by Mr. Llndstadt as
he saw fit. It so happened , however
that Deputy Food Inspector Ivan Me-
Killip of Central City , dropped In be
fore Lindstadt was advised that his
eggs were unsalable , and as is his
custom , he grabbed the first box in
sight , which happened to be LInd-
stadt's eggs , and proceeded to candle
them , after which he informed Mr.
Livinghouse that they were rotten 1
and inquired rather critically If he did
not know that the eggs in question
were unsalable , whereupon Mr. Liv
inghouse Informed the Inspector that
they had been candled , rejected and
would be turned over to the owner
. when ho returned.
The Inspector , being inclined to dis
credit the explanation given , hung
' around until Llndstadt returned and
was told to take his eggs as they were
unsalable. Lindstadt , after some
words , took his eggs , Insisting that
they were good and if the butter and
egg merchant did not want them he
would take them back home and eat
them himself. Later In the day LInd
stadt offered to dispose of his box ol >
eggs to Mat. Hennes , another buttei
