PLOT TO MURDER A FAMILY
Unknown parties, who presumably sought revenge for some fancied or real wrong, placed two pounds of dynamite under the front door of the home of Attorney W. L. Cron at Cedar Rapids, and fired the fuse attached. Carelessness in attaching the detonating cap to the fuse is all that prevented the house being blown to atoms and Mr. Cron and his family from being killed. There is no clue.
