BARTON WAS RELEASED

ON PROMISING TO LEAVE MICHIGAN

An Echo Of a Famous Arson Case--Troubles of The Fuller Family in Chelsea.

Chelsea, Oct. 27.--Joseph Buff, a workman helping to put stained glass in the windows of the new M. E. church, fell yesterday and broke his ankle. He was taken to his home in Detroit.

Culyer J. Barton, who was sentenced in the Washtenaw circuit by Judge Kinne to five years in Jackson for burning the barn of S. O. Hadley, in Lyndon, was released last week on the expiration of his sentence, but was immediately re-arrested on the charge of attempting to burn the house of Mrs. Myra May in Unadilla. He was taken to Howell, but was released on agreeing to leave Michigan. He carne to Chelsea and arranged to leave today for California.

During the past week a little excitement was created by the troubles of the Fuller family. Mrs. W. J. Fuller is visiting her brother, Frank Pierce, here, and on Tuesday her husband came here from Lansing, where they live. He has long been insanely jealous of her. She took out a warrant Wednesday in Justice Parker's office charging him with threatening to kill her. The case was adjourned until next Wednesday. In the meantime it was agreed they should separate and she should take her household belongings, an officer to accompany her to Lansing at Fuller's expense.
