.account of the way In which Lady

Mrs. Helen M. Angle, a wealthy
and good looking grass widow, well
known to society In Connecticut, was
taken into custody by the police in
connection with the mysterious
death of Waldo R. Ballou, member
of the city council of Stamford, and
long a politician in that part of
Connecticut. The case has created
a sensation throughout New Eng-
land, where both parties have
friends and relatives.
The police did not, when they/
made the arrest, charge Mrs. Anglo
with the murder. The man was
found on the sidewalk just at the
door of her apartment with his head
crushed. In the woman's rooms, She led him out to the sidewalk,

portion of "bloody battle corners,'
the extreme northeastern part of
the state, where occurred many a
stirring incident during the civil
war and the adventurous days fol-
lowing the war's termination. Judge
Williams found here the same high
degree of enthusiasm and active
support respecting his cause pre-
vailing in parts of the state less
far removed from the capital.
Notwithstanding a torrential rain,
lasting seven hours, had fallen dur-
ing the night and early morning,
Judge Williams insisted that his
program of speechmaking be carried
out to the last letter. An automo-
bile bearing Judge Williams and his
friends chugged through the mud
to several points in Ottawa coun-
ty. Judgo Williams noted and re-
marked on the fact that the chief
characteristic of the people of this
section displayed half a century
ago in protecting their property and
their families against the invasion
of those who were then their en-
emies, still dominates them.
Meets Old Friends.
Among those to greet Judge Wil-
liams at Fairland, the first speak-
ing engagement of the day, was
Col. William Howell, sixty years
rtsident of that section, a substan-
tial farmer and a prominent demo-
crat. Riley Copeland who was as-
sociated with Judge Williams in the
constitutional convention, oined the
candidate there and remained with
him throughout the day.
At Miami in the evening, J. W-
Swartz and Don P. Wills were met.
Judge Williams also saw an old
friend, M. J. Campbell, engaged a

SUCCESS MUST BE EARNED

Path to the Goal.
Most men who have amounted to
anything started with nothing but abil

Any kind of work is better than idle
ness. which is directly responsible for
most of the unhappiness in this world.
Idleness is a dangerous thing; it
may grow into a habit that might stick 1
to you after you get back in harness, |
and tho man who loafs on his job is
only fooling himself.
Eternal, intelligent effort is the price
of commercial growth, and where
there is no progression there is bound
to be retrogression. Business is some
thing like aeroplaning; to stop is to
drop and to drop is generally to bust.
Pin your faith to the law of com-
pensation, but don't take any stock in'
the law of chance; there's no such
thing. Waiting for something to turn
up in the belief that things are bound
to come your way eventually is throw-

FOR FOSS OF LAND
The trouble that Latin gender gives
to American boys and girla who are
struggling with the rudiments of that
tongue should inspire in them a sym-
pathetic feeling for a small descend-
ant of the race of Attlia who found the
gender of our English nouns and pro-
nouns a stumbling block.
A solid little figure trudged up to
the librarian in the children's room.
"That little boy," he declared, indi-
cating the rest of the room vaguely
with his thumb, "he hit me."
The "llberry teacher" followed him
back across the room until the ac-
cusing thumb halted near a table
where sat a guilty-looking child about
half the size of the plaintiff.
The accuser explained: "That little
boy, she hit me. That little boy is
a little girl; but he has short hair,
and when I point at him, she hits me."

I tried most every kind of medicine,
