George Plnd of Cape Girardeau has been conducting the search in order that he might turn over the vast fortune to its owner. The fortune was left to Sample by relatives who died recently. As news of the search for Sample found its way in every nook and corner of the globe, hundreds of "William Samples" applied to Pind for the money. When they would arrive at Cape Girardeau and find Pind, the latter would make them turn around and he would look at the backs ot their necks .before making any statement. Pind stated, after the rightful owner of the fortune was located, that the rightful owner had a scare on the back of his neck and that this mark would be the deciding factor in ascertaining make the order permanent was set for September 11.

Failure to comply would lead to arrest. The Attorney General said the American people were face to face with a great peril. TWO BOUTS FOR ONE ADMISSION Nashvillle.
