Combustion Causes Fire ,
Belgrade, July 27-(By A.P.)--Spo-
ntaneous combustion is blamed for
an explosion of a large military am-
munition depot at Kraguyevatz, 60
miles southeast, in which several per-
sois were killed and injured.

A coroner's jury holding session in
,the court hiouse down town, Monday,
night, cleared a farmer of suspicion
of murder in connection with his
w'fe's death.
The inquest was begun at the re-
quest of 30 of the man's neighbor's-
13 of whom, appeared against him on
the witness stand. For three hours
the freedom of the quiet German hus-
Landman hung in th balance. His only
friends were the two coroners. The

arms, had indicted the defendant be-
fore the procedings had ever begun.
The 13 witnesses proceeded with
their grim work-producing heresay
evidence with an earnestness that
showed their determination to bring
a verdict unfavorable to the farmer.
Now .where did this "heresay" orig-
inate? In every case it was traced to
womens' gossip. "Dropping in" on
each other of an afternoon, or "when
I was down to her house, doin' her
sewin',"'were the days when the mag-
got of scandal began its work.
Today the farmer is a free mqn.
He can never be accused again. But

Prof. John G. Winter in his illustrated
lecture on "Ancient and Modern
Rome," Tuesday afternoon.
Professor Winter showed excellent
taste in his selection of slides for his
;lectures. The many stretches of old
walls surrounding Rome, including the
'famous Servion Wall which was con-
structed in the fourth century B. C.,
were shown to an audience largely in-
terested in archaeology and Roman
history. It was a gradual filling up
between these walls which developed
the city of Rome.
Ancient Bridges in Use
One of the noted features of Rome
is its island in the city. It is a beaut-
iful spot which has always withstood
the action of the river. A 'bridge on
each side of the island connects it
with the land. These bridges were
built ind the 62B.C., repaired in 21
B.C., and are still in use.
Professor Winter also showed some
interesting scenes of the Palatina
Hill, the first hill to be settled and the
home of the wealthy class. Cicero
had-a fine villa on this hill, and the
Imperial Palace, a building of extra-
ordinary complexity is located there.
The original Roman Forum was also
compared with the Forum as it is to-
day. "The Forum today," said Pro-
fessor Winter, "is disappointing to
tourists unless they can look upon
those impressive old ruins and re-
construct-seeing the massive build-
ings as they used to be."
Unknown Soldier Buried in Rome
Among the other interesting slides
shown by Professor Winter was the

St. Paul, July 17--(By A.P.)-Min-
nesota's representation in the United,
States Senate has been turned over
to the Farmer-Labor Party as the re-
sult of another political transition
which the state went through in the
special Senatorial election yesterday.
Magnus Johnson of Kimball, a "real
dirt" farmer, gained the post vacated
by the recent death of Senator Knute
In 1,814 of the state's 3,502 pre-

Both Johnson and Shipstead are\Far-

their intention to affiliate with the

in Congress.
Preus May Try Again
Gov. Preus was running as a sup-
porter of the Harding Administration.
Pressed for details of his organiza-
tion plans, Mr. Johnson repeated an1
excerpt from his campaign keynote
speech: " Iwill do this because I be-j
lieve the farmers and the workers andl
the business men can, by united ac-
tion, better their conditions."
Charles R. Adams, chairman of the
Republican state central committee,
attributed the defeat of Gov. Preus to
the fact that the best efforts of 'Re-
publican workers were unable to ov-
ercome the evident feeling of unrest
and dissatisfaction with economic
conditions which found its vent in a
protest vote against the party in pow-
Gov. Preus had nothing to add today
to his statement thanking his sup-
porters for their votes.l
He will continue as governor unti]
the expiration of his term, Jan. 1,l

he will try for the long term senator-
ial election in 1924, for yesterday's1
election was for the unexpired term
of Senator Nelson, or until March,
1925. Mr. Johnson expects to be a
candidate for the long term, friends
Senator-elect Johnson, while an-..
nouncing adherence to the pinciples
for which the La Follette group are
banded together, has qualified this
affiliation with the statement that he
does not intend to accept dictationE
"from any man" in Congress. The
Senator-elect insists he "is nothing
but a plain farmer," not worried
"whether his pants are pressed, so
long as he is backing the interests oft

the farmer." While serving in ther
Minnesota legislature, he followedE
the practice of scrutinizing every bitE
of legislation before voting on it.
Defeated for Governor
Mr. Johnson's first venture in poli-
tics was in 1912 when he brought the
Meeker County Republican delegation
in Minneapolis for Senator Robert M.

dent., Thereafter he served two terms
