A man from Kltrlclc, Wlx., lost it lirlwccn Cenlcrvlllc, and Swift and Co., livestock yards. Thank you." Them was no signature. The money might have been dropped, wise ones around The Republican-Herald say by: An escaping thief: a poor old "widdcr an intoxicated person or two intoxicated persons for that matter; the Black Widow; ft second-hand niito dealer (they liuve plenty to throw pmailbly somebody who hiid found It In Minnesota, and Kllroy!

The letter containing the SZOO in currency and the cryptic note was mulled March 24 at 9 p. m., according to the mailing stamp and was postmarked from Winona. Best speculation on the original source at the money WM believed to be one pointing out that the mysterious bad been found many years ago and held secretly by some timid penoa who was afraid to put them into circulation or wan held by his conscience.
