TRAVELER BOUND FOR A3

ST. IX1UIS, Mo, June 17. A woman
named Mary SoleskI, en -route from
New5 York to "Astoria, with . her two
children, aged 1 and 3 years, and hav
ing; -In ber poaeession cash to the
amount of 11500, was r taken from
Union; Station by- two grange men
about 7:30 o'clock last night. : She was
to have- left for Astorl Or, where ahe
has relatives at 8:85. A few mlnuts
before that time the station caller en
tered the main waiting room to notify
her of the departure of the train. In
stead he found the woman's children
sjeaited on a bench and crying- pitifully.
AH they couhl - say was that mamma
was gone. . Inquiry by the. station
master, developed the fact that the wo
man had left "ttfe depot in company of
two strangers who had been ' talking
to her during the afternoon. Matron
Hunter stated that the woman had
81500. on her . person when she disap
peared. . "
The police at 4nce advanced the the
ory that Mrs. SSolesftl. had been kidnap
ed, and a force of detectives waa put
to work on the. cafe. At a late hour
Mrs, Soleski was found wandering near,
the river three miles from the station.
Her hair -was disheveled, her dress
torn and her face bruised. To the in
terrogatories of the police the woman
made no answer, . She talked inco
herently and kept muttering constant
ly about her money. There was a wild
look In her" eyes. Her brain was on
Ure. If kidnaped she had been, the
terrible ordeal had driven the unfor
tunate woman Insane. An mbulance
waa summoned and she was conveyed
to the city hospital; Her children were
alno sent to that institution. 0 Efforts
to obtain information from the woman
were unavailing: In her' purse was

A FREE MAN
Full Pardon Issued the Brave
Prisoner by the Gov-.
REASONS GIVEN FOR THIS ACT
OF CLEMENCY ARB! THAT HIS
SPQTLE!5S PRISON . RECORD
AND COURAGEOUS ACTION EN
TITLE HIM TO LIBERTY -
Governor T. T. Geer yesterday did an
act of ustlce in that be rantel a full
pardon to Frank S. Ingram, the brave
convict who. at the time of the out
break of Tracy and Merrill at the Pen
itentiary, risked his life In the defense
of the unarmed guards' '
Ingram, at the time of the prison de
livery," was aho In the left limb, result
ing in amputation of the lg .above the
knee, and he has since that time oc
cupied a ward in the "prison hospital.
He Is rapidly . recovering, ' and In the
course of. a few weeks will be able to
leave the hospital.
Ingram wsi .arrested In Sepfen.bo
1891, on a charge, of murdering his
brother. There was Ilk feeling between
the two, oh account ofthe division of
the farm by iln-lr mother, Frank S. In
gram receiving the family home. This
resulted in an encounter in which the
younger brother was killed' Frank In
gram and one of his employes were ar
rested charged with murder. The hired,
hand,was aeHitt i1, and In,TVsm h mat
resulted in a hung jury. , At the next
terra of court. In March. 1902, lie was
convicted of murder In the second de
gree, and sentenced to life Imprison
ment.' and on the 22d day of that month
he was received in the Penitentiary.
Ingram alleged self-defense, but he has
always maintained that he did not
shoot , his ."brother at all the case being
purely ; one of circumstantial evidence.
i Ingram comes from a good family,
and has a g mx! farm ihj Lmn county.
Governor Geer, In granting the par
don gives as his reasons for doing -so,
the- fact that "during Ms ten years of
Incarceration h3 has tva . mrde!
'.Honer. and for the further reason
that during the recent outbreak in the
Penitentiary he risked his life In de
fense of the unarmed guards by which
act of braveryXhe had the misfortune
to lose one of his legs."- . .
i Ingram's prison . .record" is an excel
lent one. and he has always been con
sidered a model prisoner,. While he Is
now a free man, Ingram will remain at
the prison until he can be safely re
moved, and In the meantime he Is re
ceiving the best'of attention. Dr. W.
A. Cuslck, the prison physician,, says
the man is now practically, out of dan
ger, and that as he is receiving the
bes.t of care and nourishment (here It
will be best to leave him there until
his recovery. .

erywhere, from the back. por&h the
barn, the chicken house and -any other
tolac-e thoy happen to be tored for the

boxes taken into consideration, the use
of the old dSrty ones should be dis-.
couragetl in jsome way. Dealers should
refuse to buy them from the producer
and; -customers should refuse : to take
berries offered in any but new. clean
boxes. The use of the old boxes is cer
tainly uncleanly and unsanitary. .

Impression that" the withdrawal "of the
Americans left the Cubans an easy

customs officials that the cutter service

necessity of continuing the service If

CHEMICAL MONSTER IN, DYED
Evidence is accr'uifig that the prac

ter to milk is increasing. Samples, are
common! met With thus, colored to
give theWf a rich but false creamy as
pect. The natural color of milk bears
no relation necessarily to the amount
of cream present. It Is very desirable
that this practice should be stopped.
We believe' that annatto is the dye
commonly employed and It la fortu-
nate that Is is harmless, though that
fact does not Justify the device. Cm,
