This startling confession, made to

to prevent any probability of mob
violence in returning the prisoner

Leaving Little Rock at 3 o’clock
Saturday morning in company with
Sheriff McArthur of Blaine county
and Fate Sanders, deputy sheriff of
Arcadia, the officials kept a close
watch on the negro. At eact sta-
tion a crowd of people collected in
an effort to catch a glimpse of the
slayer. In some instances mutter-
ings were heard which boded ill to
the prisoner, blit tiie presence of the
officials was sufficient to calm any
Sheriff Garrison, anticipating a
crowd at the depot at Oklahoma City
and fegring for the safety of Hunter
wired ahead for two automobiles to
meet the party at the Rook Island-
Frisco crossing east of the city.
At this point Hunter was taken

Mr. Goodin's Answer
Mr. Albert M. Engel, Dear Sir*..
Since you saw fit to address me
through the public press, you can
not complain if I reply in like man-
When Herbert N. Youteey and
myself bought lots No. 1, ‘2, 3, 4
and 5, in Sec. 2*2 T. 13, R 1 west,
we did so in ull sincerety, paying
$200 down, the balance of $2300 to
be paid in five equal payments draw-
ing 8 per cent interest, with the un-
derstanding that there was nothing
against the land except $1500 which
you claimed to have paid and to
have a receipt for, but it was still a
matter of record and that was the
reason you could not give a clear
deed at that time.
You agreed t*> have the title clear
by the time my first note should
come due. This contract, with deed
from James Engel, together with my
notes were deposited in the Farmers’
I immediately began work on the
place, spending not less tliau $35 on
improvements. Next, I put in 12
days work with two teams and four
men grading the river hank to keep
off high water from the fields. Then
I cleared and broke 2.r> acres of land
which is now in good state of culti-
vation. For ull this work I have
not yet received as much as $50.00
from all proceeds sold off the place
up to the present crop.
In January, 1909, this laud with
several other tracts, was sold under
foreclosure of a mortgage of $5000.
In February it was advertised for
sale under a judgement against you
for the amount of $1700 and costs
of suit, and a Mr. McConnell of Ok-
lahoma City became the purchaser,
and he was still the owner until after
this year's crop was put in and made.
Then you, Mr. Engel, received deed
in your own name front Mr. McCon-
nell, after which you mortgaged this
land with other tracts for $2500,
drawing 10 per ceut interest. You
next persuaded Henry Smith, the
man to whom I had rented the land,
to go hack on his contract with me
and to agree to give you $100 on a
If you had been frank with me
Mr. Engel, as to the shape tlie place
was in, I should never for a moment
have entertained a thought of Inly-
ing, hut since I did buy it, I want
you to know that l nm still in pos-
session and expect to continue so
until you make a settlement with me.

“I would lay awake for hours
without any apparent cause, or
dream terrible dreams which
would bring on extreme spells
of nervousness. After taking
Dr. Miles’ Nervine and Tonic
for awhile I could sleep well,
and the nervous spells have left
me.” MISS ALMA HUG.
R. R. No. 4, Canal Dover. Ohio.
Without sleep the nervous
system soon becomes a wreck,
and the healthful activity of all
the organs obstructed. Restful,
body-building sleep accompanies
the use of Dr. Miles’ Nervine
because it soothes the irritable
nerves, and restores nervous
energy. When taken a few days
according to directions, the most
restless sufferer will find sleep
natural and healthful. Get a
bottle from your druggist. Take
it all according to directions, and
if it does not benefit he will re-
turn your money.
