St. Paul Man Then Bound Over
To Grand Jury For Cutting Louden
(From Saturday’s Daily)
          On November 5th in St. Paul, there was a serious cutting affray in which  Frank Parkinson, a young man of that place, seriously cut  Dave Louden.
          Parkinson escaped and went to Kentucky. Yesterday he returned and gave himself up to the authorities.  He offered to plead guilty to a charge of plain assault and battery, but the authorities refused to allow him to get off that easily.  He was bound over to the grand jury of Decatur county, the cutting having happened in that county.
          Louden was arrested today and fined $12 for intoxication.

David Parkinson, a Well Known Mechanic,
Departs For the Far West
          Mr. David Parkinson  who has been living on South Miller street, between Washington street and Broadway, since he was married to  Miss Nandie Devening  four years ago, has left his wife and baby and is now doubtless in the far west.  One week ago on Tuesday of this week, Parkinson told his wife he was going to Indianapoils on some business.  When it was time for him to return Parkinson failed to show up.  After a few days Mrs. Parkinson received a letter from her husband from an Iowa town in which he declared his intentions of going to Seattle, Washington, and from there he did not know where he would go or what he would do.  This is the only information she has had from him.  He offered no explaination for his strange unnatural conduct.
          Parkinson has been employed for some time as a cabinet maker in the Conrey, Birely Table Factory where he was well liked.  He had always been a man of good habits and always treated his wife well.  Their baby is only eight months old.  Mrs. Parkinson was raised by Mr. Thomas Moberly  and through her father's estate and from Uncle Johnny Robertson  she inheirted a nice piece of land in Shelby township and about $1,000 in money.  She is one of the best women in the county and has been prominent in church work with the First Baptist church.  It is possible that Parkinson has gone to the Klondike gold fields.

          Last Thursday morning about 3 o'clock, John Parkinson quietly arose from bed and walked to Greensburg, there he awaited the arrival of the east bound train which passes here about 8:20 a.m. on board of which was Miss Caroline Franks, of this place, whom he accompanied to Cincinnati, Ohio, where they were married.  They returned home Friday and have gone to housekeeping.  John says he is not so foolish as some people might think.
