yours, as long aa I possibly can, as I am ,
getting old and feeble and am apt to die '
at any time. Now I am not Folug to
mention any names. Some years lino, as
you know, a man and his son came to
your house with the Intention of buy-lng
a farm; had the money there with them.
One night there was doings In the school
house and all were gone but you two
when tho man and boy arrived mid you
killed them and took the money. How
do I huppen to know this? I wa watch
ing them, thinking I might get a chanc"
to steal it and saw you kill them. I have
'he exact date to the minute you killed
them, how you killed them ana what you
fllil wttn the Domes. ow u an uepenus
on your life. If you will send me five
hundred dollars ($noi) I will never as long
a I nve say n ord to anyoi,. but if
you fail to do this I will bring such proof
against you that will cause you to hang.
I have several llltle things that alone
would convict you without my evidence,
as your rwcr Is dead, and that you
are the ono t tint shall suffer for to doing.
Now when sending this money don't send
any draft or check; it must bo the bare
money In bills, sealed In a plain envelope.
It must he mailed in Neola on Friday.

NEOLA. la., Dec. 20. Thead H. Hub
bleSir: I must acknowledge that I was
surprised when I received your letter. I
don't think that you know all that you
claim that you do. Yet 1 don't know but
that It would be best to hush the matter
up. I don't think I can raise more than
$2,i0 Just now and would like to nave you
enter into some kind of an agreement
bifore I pay the balance. I want you to
keep mum on this. F. T. C. JOHNSON.

the affair. He said that Richards, whom
he had known for several years, came to
him about a week ago and asked him If he
wanted to niake a bunch of money all of
Vestrlpp Inquired as to how
this was to be accomplished and Richards,
he says, unfolded his scheme of extorting

WHAT BOSTON PAYS FOR BEANS
Millions Cheerily Paid Out Annually
for the Fnvorlte Confection

More money is spent each year in Boston
In buying baked beans than would buy the
largest battleship In the United States navy.
In 1W4 the gross receipts of bvins In Bos

barrel are five bushels. The average, price
at which these were sold by the wholesalers
was II. S5 a bushel, and when these beans
were sold again by retailers to their custo

pound, or a grand total of ii,5t)S,27J.

panles bake are but a drop in the bucket
compared with the consumption of the Cty.
The most remarkable feature of this re-
markable consumption of beans is that the
demand Is steadily Increasing, and that 15,

In which the demand for this staple Is
greater than In others, notably the months
from Thanksgiving to April.

The bean baking establishments, which
are fitted with the most Improved methods,
have a large porcelain kettle built over a
