Missing Woman Appears. Keokuk, Ia., Sept. 7.-
July 22 the body of an unknown woman was found in a well near Wayland, Mo. It was supposed to be that of Mrs. A. Goins. Two men, named Aker and Hand were arrested in Walworth county, Wis., and brought to Missouri for trial, where they are now in jail. Monday night Mrs. Goins created a sensation by coming to Keokuk from Wisconsin, leaving for Missouri later. The identity of the woman found in the well is still a mystery.
