It was about a year ago that Lulu
Mueller, of Cumminsville, and Alma
Steinigeweg, of Winton place, Cincin-
nati, were murdered. Their deaths
took place within 30 (lavs of each
other. May McDonald, of Cincinnati,
was killed about this same time.
It has developed that Dr. Haugh was
in Cincinnati at that time and two
women who saw a man leaving the
spot where the mutilated body of Lulu
Mueller was found described him as
stooping, gray haired, shaking as if
palsied and with a glaze in his eye.
This description fits Dr. Haugh, as he
was on October 14, 1904, within a few
days of the girls' death. On that date
Mrs. Mary Johnson, an old friend of
the Haugh family, relused him admis-
sion to her Cincinnati lodging house
because of his drug eating habits.
She especially noted his appearance

ON 1 BEAR'S TRAIL
FARMER MOURNS THE LOSS OF
SEVERAL OF HIS SHEEP.
Difficult to Find the Criminal—Mai

A few weeks ago. my nearest neigh-
bor drove up to the door, to Inquire if l
had seen any of his sheep. From a flock
of thirty-six, nine were missing, and hi
thought he would ask me before hunting
That afternoon my neighbor called
again, to say that he had found six of the
Jock, all dead and all torn, doubtless by
some animal. Not wishing to yard hia
sheep so early, he obtained permission
to turn them into the Corbin game pre-
srrve. where they would have an im-
penetrable fence, eight and a half feet
high, to protect them. Then he removed
all the carcasses but one, and be and an-
other man took their guns and lay out
in the frosty air until nearly midnight,
to see if the sheep-killer would return.
He didn't—that is, as long as they were
there; but next day the sheep had been
dragged for several yards from the spot
where they had left it, anti a large part
of the flesh had been eaten. Plainly
enough it was not the work of a dog, for
no dog hereabouts could drag a heavy
sheep so far, nor would a single dog
eat so much of the flesh at a meal. 1 told

extinguish it. About the time the fire
was discovered the city water works
plant got out of order, and no pressure
was obtaiued until a late hour in the
afternoon. When it was discovered
that no water could be had, the brew-

almost an hour squirted beer od the

The barns of Dier Canada, living on

Col. C. B. Douglas has been in con-

the militia organization in the new

regiments organized, instead of two.
One regiment would be recruited from

and southwestern Oklahoma and the
third from the rest of Oklahoma In-
