A Denison Man Disposes of Mortgaged Property and Skips
Denison, Tex., April 21,  A warrant was issued yesterday for the arrest of Ike Melzer on the charges of disposing of mortgaged property.  Some time ago he mortgaged his household goods to John McNamara for some money.  Last week he sent his wife and family to Illinois, and sold his goods to a second-hand goods dealer. The warrant followed, and Melzer was soon wanted badly by the constable.  The most diligent search failed to find him, and this morning it was learned that he had left the city.  Melzer was a barber, and has lived in Denison for fifteen years.
Houston, Tex., April 21,  On February 9 last A. J. Milantree was lying in wait for a man against whom he had a grudge, and who had to pas through a lonely road.  Milantree even went so far as to dig the grave into which to throw his victim.  Will Seaforth happened along at the time, and mistaking him for his would-be victim, Milantree knocked his brains out with a coupling pin but was frightened away.  Seaforth died next day, and during lucid intervals called the name of Milantree, which furnished the clew which led to his arrest.  To-day he was awarded twenty-five years in the penitentiary on a verdict of murder in the second degree.

Texarkana, Tex., April 21,  This city is stirred up to-night over the finding a body of a full matured male child in an old box in some brushes near the standpipe.  The body, from an autopsy, shows that the child was delivered alive.  Old rags and a scrap of paper may lead to the finding of the parents of the child.  An effort will be made at all events to this end.
The coroner of Mills county, Ark., served papers on Sheriff Blythe to-day and recovered a full load of sacked flour, attached in the Runnels failure.  Mr. Kogdoff of Lexington, Mo., was the owner of the flour and was made to prove each and every sack before he could take it out, which his agents did.
