A apr. 26.�?arthur j. Ferguson 78 years old Long time resident of Miller was this week turned Over to the Penitentiary authorities at Sioux Falls to begin serving a 20 year term for murder after having been convicted eleven months ago of killing his wife dec. 25,.1922.

Parks and Bruise and the adoption by the Reich Stag of the legislation necessary to put Germany a finances in order. Until the foregoing has been accomplished by Germany it is Felt in official circles Here that the French and belgians cannot Exchange present pledges for others and that evacuation of the Ruhr must hinge upon the prompt fulfilment of these conditions by Germany. Furthermore the French insist that the change of regime in the Ruhr be preceded by an inter Allied agreement on the sanctions or penalties to be provided in the event of a German default. Oppose British View on the latter Point the French View is diametrically opposed to that of the British and expressed in other terms the fundamental differences which existed Between Lloyd George and Premier Mill Rand Bonar Law and Premier Poincare remand the same Between premiers Poincare and Mcdonald. The French policy was expressed in must nurse him Back to health. That is a task mrs. Cooney wishes might be hers. For her All was wrapped up in her baby Long before it was born. According to the confession which Tho police say a he made. She began Hor terrorism As the a Rob haired Bandit to get Money to bring up the coming baby. A a a life had not Boon ask for mrs. Cooney. Hor husband was out of work. Before her she saw a life of poverty for herself and the baby that was coming. Something drastic had to be done. Then came the first of the series of hold ups. Their Success baffled the police and goaded the Bob haired Bandit on. Through january. February. And Early March everything went smoothly. There were a few close Calls but always escape. The time grew Shorter. The baby was due within another month. One final re Ean up was planned. It came on March 16 at the National biscuit warehouse.

The baby was born in Jacksonville. Fla. At last mrs. Cooney was realizing Tho happiness for which she had endangered her life so Long. But it was Short lived. The Strain of her recent activities told on her baby. It was too weak to live. Then with a grim gesture of irony it betrayed its Mother in its death. For there was no Money to Bury it properly. So the Cooney wrote to friends in Brooklyn for help. The clue Given by these letters led to their capture so mrs. Cooney robbed of the one thing she wanted above All else sits listlessly in Lier Yeti awaiting her ate a Small matter to her now. A a a and Over in Woodhaven in a Small House As Gray As the prison from which she just came sits Gussie Humann free in the eyes of the Law. But not in those of her former friends. For they still hold her responsible for the death of Harry Garbo an old sweetheart who was murdered by i the father of the Humann baby. So the Young Mother still unmarried. Has locked herself in her old Home drawn Down the curtains of Jhu windows to evade the eyes of the neighbors and is devoting herself to the rearing of her child.
