Jordan Rejoices That It Need Not White Cap Him.
Special to The Journal.
Jordan, Minn., Dec. 31.-H. Bormeister, a man 61 years old, has fled the country and cannot be found. His wife is left penniless. Bormeister was the father of a child born this week to the 16-year-old granddaughter of his wife, and to such an extent was the community excited over the event that he fled. Had he not done so it is more than probable that the result would have been very serious for him.

Duluth, April 26.-Oscar Carlson, a farmer living at Jordan, Minn., came to Duluth from St. Paul, where he was swindled out of all his money by confidence men who offered to give him a good position in this city, borrowed his cash for a "moment" by giving a bogus draft as security. The police are now caring for him and will make an effort to round up the crooks. It is believed that it is the same gang which have been swindling men here quite often as of late.

Hearing a commotion Zelenke went out to the poultry yard and found the birds seeking hiding places. Looking about for the hawk he spied the eagle. The bird weighed 13 pounds and its wing spread measured 7 feet, 6 inches. The eagle was turned over to Francis Vopatek, local taxidermist, to be mounted.
