Old Detective Locates Mary

Mrs. Rorick Is Found And Returns To Husband.

She Was Living with “Zing Zang” on a Farm Near Taylor and Returns to Her Husband—To Leave Quincy.

Milt McDonald, aged 62 years, has returned to his home between Colchester and Macomb. He has finished his work as a detective in the employ of the Grannon Tin Star agency of Cincinnati, and returned to the quiet, uneventful life of a ruralist. Last night he authorized Sergeant Harvey of the police department to dispose of his revolver and the sergeant sold it to Goldner, the second-hand dealer, for a dollar. Goldner inspected the weapon and offered for it fifty cents. The officer told him he would have to bid again or he would not get the weapon. It was then that Goldner doubled his offer and secured a weapon that when burnished up a bit will sell for $1.50 or $2.

Call From Cap. Tyrrell

Cap. Tyrrell of Beaumont, Texas, was calling on Clarion friends Saturady [sic]. Cap. still as a host of friends in this county among the old settlers, all of whom will be glad to know he has made a “barrel of money” in the oil business the past few years. In the early political history of the county Cap was a prominent and aggressive figure and when he entered the race his opponent well knew it was to be a fight to the finish. We have known of Mr. Tyrrell calling our father out of bed as early as 3 or 4 o’clock to discuss some political matters and by day light Cap was well into the township he was to canvass. He has used the same aggressiveness in business, as do his sons, Will and Harry Tyrrell.

Visitors Confer on Needs for Manouevres

Special Dispatch to Herald and Journal

CAMP DEVENS, Sept. 27—The first airplane to visit this camp came unexpectedly this afternoon while the division was in training on the drill grounds and ranges. Worked ceased instantly to observe the biplane as it dropped from a high altitude and circled around for a good landing place, choosing the main parade field as the best.

Lt. Col. Adams, assistance chief-of-staff, reached the parade first and cleared a path for the machine. Men of the 35th and 73rd infantry regiments crowded round; even the men from the development battalion forgot their lameness to hurry over.

Lt. E.H. Rorick of The Dalles, Ore., the pilot, and Lt. C.F. Finter of Lyndhurst, Va., the observer, stepped out of the machine to receive a welcome from Lt. Col. Adams and Capt. Reid, assistant division adjutant. Provost guards had to form a cordon around the machine, so great was the crowd of interested soldiers.
