Lounsberry was thought by his neigh-

that he had securities and bonds repre-
senting a fortune.
The first Intimation that Boeck was
related to Lounsberry was when a mes-

He is tall and good looking, and
through his acquaintance with promi-
nent men he was Introduced Into so-
ciety and became the confidential
broker of many wealthy women. He
both spoke and wrote Chinese, and
was familiar with Chinese porcelains,
antiques, bronzes and other works of
art. He had dined with the Chinese
empress and was able to tell of the
magnificence of the art works in the
palace in Peking.
Rated as Al, Boeck secured Jewels
on memorandum, and then disap-
peared. Ludwig Nllsen & Co. of 182
Broadway, and E. VV. Drayton, Jew-
eler and antiquarian, at 4 West Thirty-
ninth street, were the chief victims.
Between them they lost more than
150,000. It Is known that he had many
other victims among Jewelry firms,
and that when he fled he had obtained
nearly a quarter of a million dollars'
worth of jewels on credit. He went
to China, remained there nearly a
year, and then ventured back to San
Francisco, where he was caught.

Cost of Living In Mexico.
Everywhere, us populations grow,
there is the cry of the higher cost of
living. Because ours Is comparatively
virgin soil as yet, the cost is higher
and the cry louder In nearly all other
countries that have come far past
barbarism, reclaimed their untitled
lands and cleared forests. In Mexico,
where rents have doubled, all prices
ate higher than In the United States,
with wages nowhere near tha level
which has been attained here.
Secretary Dallinger has ordered 1,400,000 acres of
choice land thrown open to settlers under the home-
stead laws, on and after March 1, i9ro. This land
is mostly level or rolling prairie and is coveted with
a heavy growth of wild Krass. The soil is a brown
clay loam. This land lies in Valley County,
It i* known to be very fertile and wherever farming
has been carried on, good yields of wheat, oats, rye,
barley, flax, alfalfa, hay, potatoes and even corn have
been obta.ned. The land is free under the homestead
laws No registration-no drawing. No long waits
and disappointments as is the case with the lottery sys-
tem. No expense—except the few dollars for filing fee.
