Albert Lea Freeborn County Standard (Newspaper) - August 20, 1902, Albert Lea, Minnesota The Gillingham Bank tragedy a by John n. Raphael Tup loud toned clock of the girl Ingham Bank struck the Quarter and As the last beat sounded the watchman entered the managers Rotile turned on the electric Light threw a perfunctory glance round the apartment switched off the Light and went out. His Steps sounded on the Stone stairs leading Down to the vault. They passed tile room again live minutes later As he returned and died into silence As lie went Back to his armchair in the outer office. Hal past one sounded from the loud toned clock and Gillingham was fast asleep. A Man crawled out from under the managers table and stood for a moment in the darkness of the room. Ile went to the shutters and examined them closely and saw that they wore of one solid piece and fitted closely against the window then turned on the electric Light. The watchman might have been surprised if he had seen George Hardy in the Bank at this hour of the night though he would not have been alarmed for the Bank a safety. But then the watchman did not know that George Hardy and his Uncle the Bank manager had had a bitter quarrel that same morning. George had told his Uncle of his engagement to Netta Hardy and the manager had expressed with almost brutal plainness his Frank opinion of George Hardy a worthlessness and had told him that until he had proved his Power of earning sufficient Money to support his Cousin he should never marry her. That queer As it May sound was the reason for Young Hardy a presence in the Bank at this Midnight hour. George Hardy opened a lilt tie Chamois leather bag and took out a Complete set of burglars tools. As they Lay there upon the table they looked far More like the delicate in Artru intents of a dentist than like things which would presently Force the big Safe in tile Corner to Dos Gorge its treasure there were �30,-000 in Bank notes and As much or More in Bonds and shares to bearer in. That Safe and George Hardy knew it for he had seen his Uncle Jet them there. George Hardy also knew that a record of the numbers was some where in the Bank. A not that the numbers matter Mui he or will matter much when in be done a Hardy muttered. And lie placed a Small Square ease which looked like a hand camera upon the floor beside the Safe. The Little ease was heavy and when he had placed it by the Safe George Hardy stood looking at it for a moment. A it will aet ten minutes after i have wound it up a he said a and after those ten minutes nobody will know that anything is missing. The explosion will be put Down to an escape of Gas i shall be Back in my bedroom when it happens and tomorrow i leave for Australia. A few years passed in quiet there a Story of successful mining speculation and then George Hardy set to work. The details of the Safe breaking were soon Over. The Safe was an old fashioned one and the burglar s appliances were modern. Within a very Short time the big door swung noiselessly upon its hinges and the thief was selecting the notes braids and shares for which he had come. Ile stuffed its Booty into the Small handbag gathered up the filings of Metal from the carpet and threw them into the Safe pushed the door to and turned to the infernal machine. Before winding up the clock work attachment lie glanced at his watch. A not three of clock yet. In be been pretty Quick a he said. He Felt in his Waistcoat for the Little Flat passkey which had admitted him so easily into the managers Sanctum and dropped a tin spot of Oil on the wards. A once the machine is started i must lose no time in getting out a he muttered. Hardy sat Down in his uncles chair and thought his plans Over carefully. The explosion would leave no traces of a burglary. When it happened he would be in his bedroom in his uncles House and doubtless like his Uncle would Rush downstairs half dressed to learn what was the matter. His departure the next Day too. Would cause no suspicion for he had told Many people of his intention to go out to Australia and seek a Fortune which should permit him to come Back in a few years time and marry it would not take him two minutes to get out of the Bank and the explosion would destroy All traces of the numbers of ins Booty which lie could easily negotiate in Melbourne. He sat there thinking for a min Ute longer got up and walked across to the Small Black Case which he had put near the Safe. Although he Felt assured that nothing could go wrong his heart was thumping almost painfully. As he crossed the room he caught sight of his face in the looking Glass Over the mantelpiece and laughed to see How Pale it was. A and yet there s no real danger at least none for me a he said aloud. A a in a sorry for poor Watson Watson was Hie night watchman who was sleeping in the cushioned chair in the outer office. A poor beggar but the Bank will pension his widow if a and the thought of what was almost sure to happen stayed his hand a moment As it went out to the clockwork attachment of the infernal machine. The clock struck a Quarter to four. A a now a said George Hardy. And he wound up the attachment of the Little Black Case in the Corner by the Safe. Tick tick tick tick Ile gave a glance round him. Drew the pass key from his pocket took the bag containing the stolen Fortune in his hand and stopped Over to the door. Lie slipped the key into the lock and turned out the Light. A stick tick tick tick Hardy turned the key but lie found it stick a Little. Tick tick tick tick he pushed the key farther in the lock but it refused to turn. The Many a eyes widened in momentary terror. What if i failed to get out of the room nothing on Earth could Stop the machine in the Corner now. He could not even smash it for such an action would Only hasten the end which he now feared would come too soon. Tick tick tick tick Hardy struggled with the key again hut it rammed More tightly in the lock than Ever told perspiration poured Down his face in streams and he wrestled with the tiny passkey for his life. It was his life for which he was fighting and life now that it seemed so suddenly nearer its end had grown sweeter to him than it had Ever been before. Lie Shook the key in desperation. He then twisted his handkerchief into the ring of it made a Tourniquet of it with his Pencil Case and once More attempted to turn the lock but the ring of the key came right off in his hand and left the key itself sticking in the door. Tick tick tick tick All fear of possible discovery had left him now in this greater All absorbing terror and he shrieked aloud for help. But no help came. Watson the night watchman slumbered peacefully in the outer office. Mad with terror George Hardy hammered at the door. He Tore open High Little Chamois leather bag of gurgling implements and endeavoured to pick the key out from the lock or turn it. He could do neither. The Many a face grew horrible in its ghastly terror. He dropped his gurgling tools stepped Back from the door and laughed a Long loud crazy laugh which ended in a shriek of fear. Tick tick tick tick the burglars reason was fast leaving him. Tick tick remorselessly the clockwork of the machinery went on and every beat seemed like the throb of a huge Sledge Hammer on George Hardy a brain. He rushed to the window and tried to unfasten the shutters but they were securely locked and though the key to them was somewhere in the room As he fully knew he could not remember where the watchman had put it. He switched on the Light once More and t ried to think. L ick tick tick tick he could think of nothing but that Dull thud thudding which continued to beat on and on would go on until tile end came. The Bank robber sat Down on the floor beside his bag and Pat Ted with his right hand gently on the carpet in accompaniment to the ticking of the clock in the machine. Tick tick tick tick Hardy commenced to count the ticking. Perhaps he could burst open the door. He threw himself blindly at it and lacerated his head against the easing. A Little Stream of blood trickled from the broken skin upon his forehead. A but the door did not yield. Again and again lie hurled himself against the Portal but it was too stoutly made and resisted every Effort. Presently in one mad Rush he caught his foot in the bag and fell heavily to the ground. Tick tick tick tick and silence. The clerks when they arrived at the Bank the next morning found the broken Safe and the infernal machine with its Damp fuse beside it. George Hardy was sitting on the floor beside his open bag laughing childishly As he Tore up Bonds and banknotes crushed them in his hands and dabbed them at the Little wound upon his forehead to staunch a bleeding which had Long since ceased. The room door had been closed when they came to it but it was not locked although the broken key was in it answers. Fifty years after.

After making much of Haynes they brought the calf into Camp but the next Day the Farmer came Down proved his standing by Haynes identified the calf thieves and they were required to pay the owner five dollars the Captain lending them the Money.

A i he confederates hurried their prisoners off As quietly As possible three or four Miles to an old House in a sheep hollow or Gorge.

She i i in Al idea be everywhere an injury to t ii i c attle As Ell ast hairy Boxness. There Are three phases to be considered in this choosing a cow said prof. S. F. Cooley at a recent Institute at the Massachusetts agricultural College. First i would select the cow As an individual without reference to antecedents and records. The most important indication of a Good cow is her udder. No cow can make much milk without a capacious udder. This is not measured so much by its vertical diameter a by its length As measured by the attachment to the body. It should extend Well Forward and far Back or upward Between the legs and should be wide at the same time but not necessarily pendulous. The next Point to be considered is the barrel. The cow must have a big body which is her workshop or Laboratory. Those features that indicate a Good breeder or Mother should come next. She should be wide through the hips and Large and Roomy in the Hind quarters. The fourth Point to be considered is the for quarters and Here she should be rather thin and Sharp of spare flesh loosely put together with Chin a Little Sharp. The neck should be Sharp and rather loosely put on tile shoulders and the head Long. Lastly should come tile superficial Points Sich As Good milk veins Escutcheon Fine hair and Loos skin. The udder barrel Pelvic Region fore quarters and superficial Points should be considered in this order but most buyers begin with the last and Seldom Geas far a the udder. The second phase of the selection has to do with the Pedigree. A Pedigree of the right sort should be a record of ancestry that includes animals of Superior Merit close up. The Mother of the now should be a Superior animal and of the Type which you wish to perpetuate. The Mother of the cows sire should be the same. If they Are mediocre you d n the Trio of tailor finished gowns pictures and description of which Are from the Washington Star one is in old Blue Linen one of those dim soft blues with the bodice and skirt in Fine tucks. These portions of the suit to accommodate the tucking Are in a Light weight Linen the coarse loosely Woven sort. The band trimming which is stitched with Black and the flounce Section of the Jupe is in a closer and heavier weave. Cut in a shaped pieces this forms a stylish shoulder and hip Yoke with straight biases capping the sleeves. Wider pointed bands outline the skirt flounce and a shaped Belt of Black Patent leather neatly girdles the Waist. The entire costume is unlined. Brown butchers Linen the heaviest used for costumes realizes the second Toilette. Which displays a bodice trimming of Black and Brown embroidery. The lower portion of the bodice of this in up and Down Box plaits with a tucked round the Jupe flounce and Yoke sleeves of the suit being of the Plain i Nen. A neck ruffle of Black silk Muslin is an effective detail with this costume which is also without lining. Mercerized Linen in a Dull artistic Green is the texture of the third dress. The Blouse bodice has Lengthwise tucks. Around the bust is a decoration of Diamond shaped pieces held Down by Small Black buttons. The sides and Back of the skirt Are also tucked. The apron Gore is Plain and the scant flounce is headed with a narrow line of Black needlework the High Collar band is likewise embroidered in Black and tucked at the upper portion the Bishop s sleeves puff into Plain wrist bands. Apropos of mercerized Linen which you know is a mixture of Linen and Cotton the smartest Wash petticoats of the hour Are being made of it. In the delicate colors this glistening weave has almost the look of silk and if the skirts Are made sufficiently full tucking and cheap Torchon laces will give them a very fetching air. The fullness is required by the fact that the imitation linens have but i gee body and in the scant shapes the skirts Slink unbecoming by. The Floun cing should All be Cut on the straight and heavily tucked. Another Good material for practical summer undershirts is Brown or Black Pongee. Cool As Cool these Are washing like handkerchiefs and emerging from the tub As Good As new. Only a girls purse. The Dainty receptacle contained variety of things almost equal to boys pocket. Poems and stories used to be written about the infinite variety of articles to be found in a boys pocket. Girls do not have pockets so much the worse for them but the things they Stow away in their pocketbooks would put a boy to the Blush says the Pittsburg dispatch. A girl emptied Ber purse the other Day. A i have to clean it out a she explained a every once in awhile just As i do my Bureau these Are some of the things that were in it two one Dol Lar Bills a 50-cent piece two quarters a five cent piece Lead and ten pennies a a a Lucky italian Coin a japanese a pocket piece a two receipts three Bills a parlor car Check four Street railway transfers five mutilated Stamps a Pencil stub matinee Coupon three keys newspaper clippings and a cleaners Check for gloves. That was not at All an unusual Case. Almost any girl can match it. Jacob Miller. Never have included one for Jacob Miller had it not been for the testimony of his two comrades who were with him. For the reason that he was sure that he had left Miller dead on the Field on Chickamauga. Indeed after the Battle Miller was reported dead by his Captain and his name was printed in the newspapers among the killed. Miller s friends in Indiana did not know he was alive until two months later. The army gorgeous feeling sure that Miller would die told him of these two and left them in charge they would not give him any More of one guard. During the night they pain by probing for the Bullet so it were permitted to go outside and was but in the wound until he went Hayne stooping Down worked his Home. Nine months after he was hands Loose caught up a club Anil. Wounded he arrived Home. Two sur springing suddenly on the guard. Go sons operated on him and succeeded knocked him Down. The refugee Fin in removing about one third of the shed the business and he and Haynes made a Bee line for the Tennessee River aiming to strike it just above Cleveland. A the refugee knew the country Well and where to find Union people. The Musket Ball. Seventeen years after he was shot he was cleaning his j wounds one Day when a piece of Lead dropped into the water. Comrade Miller has no memory for names but very vividly recalls All the first night they were hidden in a House Little details of How he was shot and which was searched Early the next How he was left for dead and finally morning from top to Bottom by con 1 crawled away from among the dead federate cavalry but the East ten and dying Nesse eans of those Days knew How to hide a fellow and Haynes and his four hn9lmnd&Quot old Soldier Friend were not found. The next night in a cd ii. Boyd marched away they were Lucky enough to get across i from his Illinois Home to i Quot it on 1he the River and worked their Day eau 1 Sile of the Union in the civil War he piously toward Chattanooga.

Wither has any articular j Breed possibilities or capabilities j they exist because they Are the prod i nets of a Lazy careless system. They do no help their owner much but tend to discourage him with his life. The no pure it be cow is the product of indifferent systems of farming and it is an animal which is neither Good for milk nor beet. She is usually a Good feeder an excellent feeder in fact out not much of a producer. It is astonishing sometimes to know j where the food goes which she eats for it is converted into neither fat flesh nor milk. It must make Bone muscle or sinew for the flesh of the animal is generally Tough when eaten. Now the general purpose cow is a Moss or Type intermediate Between the beef and Dairy Type. This animal strictly speaking is the product of careful and Good Breeding and is not the outcome of Chance or Accident. She has been bred for a dual purpose and if she comes up to anticipations she is a Good Milker and a Good beef producer. While not As Good As the Best beef animal or the finest Dairy cows in producing flesh or milk she nevertheless possesses the ability to partake of each to a considerable degree. She is eminently adapted to the general Farmer who wishes milk and later a fat cow for the shambles with calves which will produce Good veal in a Short time from birth. It mar not be generally known but it is More difficult to raise such an animal than a typical beef or Dairy cow. The danger however comes in with the no purpose cow. In trying to secure a Good general purpose animal we May stumble upon the former. This should be avoided in every possible Way for a the investment would prove As unsatisfactory As any possibly could on the . P. Smith in Indiana Farmer. Good Type of yearling. Have a poor Pedigree to Start with. The farther Back you can go with Good animals the better the Pedigree. The next Point is uniformity and similarity of animals on both sides. In the selection of a Herd the third phase is to choose a few each year from among those cows you have and Weed them out. Selecting a few from outside Superior to those you propose to let go. To make selections in your own Herd it is necessary to keep a daily record and to make frequent tests of to e milk. Depose of those not making a satisfactory profit. At the Connecticut Experiment station it costs about $42 i a year to keep a cow. Here about $60. In order top a for this feed a cow must be capable of making 300 pounds of butter per year. The average of the Herd ought to lie 3.�0 pounds and 400 put funds is possible with care and selection. Too Many Farmers Don t know which cows Are making a profit and which a loss.

The Day after our arrival Bob Lou and Dave made a scout up the Creek about eight Miles and located a calf which they intended to return for that night and she married another and when Cut its Throat and carry the carcass her second died she married another quietly into Camp. A this was the plan but it did no to work. The boys came to Camp went Back at night and found the calf in a pen. But when one of them jumped in to Cut the calf a Throat without making any noise the Little beast set up such a bleating that the Farmer came out and ordered the boys off. They Wold him to go to blazes when he declared that he had a guard and would lend him out. Dave thought this was a Bluff and had just killed the calf when the guard came out and ordered that nothing on the place be touched. A no sooner had the guard spoken than the boys recognized the voice a that of Haynes it who had been taken named Norton who also died. Boyd also married once and his wife died. A few years ago these former sweethearts both now grown Gray met in Carthage for the first time since lie marched away a Brave Young Soldier in Uncle same a Blue.

Hie Blackberry Patch is often a source of disappointment to those who do not understand the nature of the Plant. The average beginner considers it very important to encourage the growth of As Many new canes As possible for the following seasons bearing. This tends to weaken the Parent roots at the expense of the fruit. Only a few new canes should be allowed to grow to each Plant during the season.
