The mystery of the little zinc box which
bns tliroivn such n dark shadow over the llfo
of Dr. P. W. I'oulson of Frultvnlo , Cnl. , Into
Of Council muffs nnil now of No Whcro , Is
far from bclnfr 8olveil , ns telegrams front Cnl-
tfurnla indicate that strnngo features nro
being milled to the singular case every day.
Dr. I'oulson , who is a writer , Is Itnown as
Dr. P. W. P. Fagerstjorna , l not hastening
his return , so fir ns anybody can find out.
While ills attorneys in Frultvalo cluim that
ho will easily clear up the mystery the state
Is getting ready to open the little zinc box to
ascertain wbat Is Inside. It Is said that ho
is now in Chicago.
1 he doctor'sitroublcs commenced to date
from the time ho bccatno a spiritualist , hav
ing turned ills back on Mormonlsm , Ho cnmo
to the coast nnd made the acquaintance
of Miss Edna Hnell. u handsome young
woman , nnd sister of H , n. Snell , a member
of the Oakland city council. It is
alleged that their married life was an
unhappy ono and the wlfo obtained a dl-
voice , retaining the name of Edna Sncll
Poulson. Just about this tlmo the "woman
In black" made her appearance in the path
of Poulson's life. Her nnmo was Miss Lizzie
Carter , and she gave her occupation as that
of n journalist. Her views ou spirit
ualism seemed to coincide with the
doctor's. and they had many a
talk on the subject. She fell madly in love
with the doctor , and would have accepted
him at any moment. Hut the doctor did not
lilco her looks , and through the aid of the
spirits he selected the woman who Is now
his wlfo. Then came the curse of Lizzie
Carter. She wrote it on paper and she
preached it from the streets. Her 0110 do-
elro anil aim in llfo was to win back Dr.
Poulson. It came to pass that through her
powers as a incdluiii she had learned ttiat
the day was not far distant when Dr. Poul-
son's > homo would bo wrecked and his hap-
Her Prophecy rullllloil.
This strange woman thereupon made
the i > rcdlollcn of what was to como
in the future , ami sure enough it
turned out just as she had predicted , oven
almost to tin ) day. But Lizzlo Carter luul
brought some material power UTiplay in
order to compass the ruin of the doctor. She
was n strong letter writer , nnd spent most
of her time in sending epistles to Dr. Poul-
BOII and his wife. The latter received scores
of the most scandalous letters , wherein wcro
contained charges almost boyoud conception.
As for the doctor It kept him busy opening
his mall and reading portions of ttio history
of liis life whcroiu ho was told of secrets
which ho considered quite sacred.
Later Miss Carter succeeded in involving
several other women in the case until now it
would scorn as if a whole colony of women
\\cio ou the doctor's trail. Frorp his earliest
years the doctor was a mystery to his
friends. It is said that his parents
even did not understand him. He
was disposed to bo reticent and secretive.
Nevertheless ho at tunes displayed Hashes
of brilliancy which commended him to people
who afterward acted as his friends.
As he grow into manhood ho became
morose , nnd nt times inel.inclioly , devoting a
ffrc.it deal of time to thn consideration of
ubjcets of a supernatural character.
"When ho attained his majority Morinouism
wns making rapid strides in Stockholm ,
wliero ho had bccu educated and u Hero ho
had aUo graduated from the military acad
From the Meialnli.
The young man lost little time in embrac
ing the tenets of Joseph Smith , nnd thence
forth wns considered us among ttio most
ardent believers iu these erratic doctrines.
Coming to this country a married man , ho
was not able to shako off the molaucholy
which periodically took possession of him ,
nnd on such occnslous.ho would wander far
from homo and establish communal relations
tvnd connections with the supernatural beings -
ings with whom ho peopled the heavens.
Even us Joseph Smith had been commis
sioned from on high , so would ho undertake
to lend ttio people back to the Messiah.
In furtherance of this desire lie has loft
on record Innumerable messages which came
to him ns the * messages of the Messiah.
These messages have been printed by him
under the assumed nnmo of P. W. P.
Fagcrstjerna in a work styled "Tho Light of
Messiah on the Gospel of Freedom and the
Order of Messiah. "
Tills work contains 380 pages of closely
printed matter and is only thu llrst of seven
volumes which the ' 'Messenger , " as lie styles
himself , has itollnod as his llfo work , and ho
proposes to publish as soon as divorce cases
anil other mundane matters afford him the

heaven. " It lias presidents"generals , vicars ,

knights , regiments of provision. Hosicrus-
cians and White Cross Knights , who nro the
most numerous and the bulk of the armvand
count the privates and the subaltern olllcors
from their midst. This order , however , is
only a stopping stone to thu Order of the
Black Cross , for which the doctor has
had printed a most elaborate ritual.

Frosted Bear , the Indian soldier accused
of the killing of Little Stallion , an Indian
scout , near Fort Niobrara recently , lias had a
preliminary lioarlnu' before United States
Commissioner Dorrlngton. Ho was
held to the United States district court on
thn charge of murder. Ho was brought lioru
by United States District Attorney Baker
and Deputy United States Marshal Boehmn ,
and is now con lined In the county jail.
The nccusod man's superiors and everyone
ono acquainted with him give him the best
kind of a reputation , and state that ho lias
never before boon In any trouble. Ho was
once a corporal | n his company , but hud to
bo reduced ou account of the fact that ho
did not have a sufficient knowledge of
Kngllsh , Neither Air. Baker nor Mr.
Boohmo believe that the man will bo con
victed , us the only evidence against him Is
> the fact that ho was the last person scon iu
thu company of the murdered scout , nnd as
there is nothing to show that Frosted Bear
and i.itllo Stallion had over had any trouble
between them , the chances are in favor of
thu acquittal of the accused Indian ,

moro prominent in positions , were Just as
emphatic that the situation was unchanged ,
ilio former two saw every waybill on the

of cars loaded between Omaha and Ogdon.
But'tho latter two , both heads of depart
ments , saw lltltochango iu the situation ,
Whether tills is significant remains to bo
seen. Certain It Is , however , that the rep
resentative heads have commenced to speak
moro dcspondlngly of the situation , while
the actual receipts arc greater than at any
tlmo in the past month.
Reference to the dally car reports will
show this , yet the oftlcials hove suddenly

' There U n considerable movement in fruit

movement in commerce which gives
us hopethat the worst is

BOARD OF HEALTH.
Short .Session nt Which Fund * Wcro Thar-
oiii-lily IMncnn * (1.
The Board of Health held n short meeting
yesterday afternoon. Dr. Seniors brought
up the question of funds for the remainder
of the fiscal year. Ho said that the amount
in the fund would carry the board until the
middle of next month , nnd that between
$3,600 and $1,000 would bo required to moot
the expenses for the remainder of the year.
When the annual appropriation was made
$10,000 was placed iu the health fund.
Mr. McLcarlo moved that the council bo
requested to transfer from the general to
the health fund the sum of If , > 00 for the use
of the board. The motion was adopted.
Mr. Howell brought up the question of the
dry closets in the public schools. Ho said
that President Powell of the Board of Edu
cation had stated that he desired n test bo
made as soon as possible ns to whether the
systems are nuisances or not.
This caused Dr. Seniors to bring forth a
pile of letters from the health officials of
different cities. He road these from Chicago
cage , Milwaukee and Minneapolis , and each
gave the dry closet systems n decidedly
black eye. Beyond the reading of the loiters
ters nothing was dgne , and In the midst of
the talk ( Jhiof Seavoy slipped in a motion to
adjourn , which was adopted.
