One of McConnell's bondsmen said yes

the defaulter had gone,' the matter had
been reported to the police and every
effort would be made to find him and
bring him back to answer for his crime.
It has transpired since the departure of
McConnell that he in some way pos
sessed himself of $1000 life insurance
which was carried in the order by the
late H. G. Mathies, and spent it with
the rest of his stealings. The money
was placed in McConnell's bands to pay

THE INSTITUTE. j
A History of Kecent Financial Legisla- '
lion a Study Today. j
In the history class today, led by Prof, i
Acker man, there were discussed the
silver bills of 1870, 1873 and IS78. The I
historical facts merely were reviewed, !
entirely apart from a partisan stand-!
point, which would not have been tol- j
era ted. This discussion consumed most j
of the time. The text was from Thomas' ,
history, an advanced work better suited j
Bales His Own Wool.
Mr. J. H. Sherar is in the city. . A
art of his wool clip has already arrived
and the rest is on the way. Mr. Sberar's
wool can easily be told from all the rest
as it lays on the D. P. & A. N. ware
house platform. It has been baled and
bound with iron straps. The device for
doinz this is Mr. Sherar's own invention,.
All his wool is now baled oei'ore leaving
the ranch. In these days wheu it re
quires the most rigid economy for a wool
raiser to market his wool without loss,
any invention which will reduce ex
penses should be hailed, with satisfac
tion. Besides reducing bulk, the chief
advantage in baled, wool is that the
transportation rates are much less than
upon bags. - ... "
