Maurice - Fire starting in a moving picture theater over the Woodna &
Marelas restaurant Sunday morning wiped out a large section of business
buildings in Maurice and caused a loss estimated at $25,000. The fire raged
until the frame buildings adjacent to its origin were a mass of smoking
ruins. Buildings totally destroyed are:
Barber shop and pool hall, owned by Joe Douglas.
Heuinkveld Mercantile company.
Garage owned by P.J. Moran
Restaurant and moving picture show building, owned by Mrs. Ellen Lynch.
It is assumed that the fire was caused by some of the apparatus in the
moving picture show, although there is now way of telling, as the show was
closed about 11 o'clock and no one was in the place at the time.
Estherville - W.J. Pullen of Estherville, was appointed to the position of
deputy state fish and game warden with a salary of $1,200 per year. Mr.
Pullen served as sheriff of Emmet county for several years, being classed as
a very efficient officer. At present he is acting in the capacity of city
Avoca - According to a jury in Judge Woodruff's court at Avoca, it is worth
$2,500 to be accused of stealing a steer. Alex Cain, the man who was accused
of being a steer stealer, thought it was worth all of $10,000 and sued his
neighbor J.K. Osler for that amount. But the jury, after hearing the suit
for three days and then wrestling over the complex problems presented for
better than 18 hours, concluded he had fixed his estimate too high, and
reduced that amount to $2,500.
- After 52 years of married life, Louise M. Dettmer of Waterloo has brought
action against Henry W. Dettmer for separate maintenance. She is 70 years
old and he is 78. For two years the couple has been separated.
