•/-':„< tm*Eift DES MOINES; ALGOHA, IOWA, W1BNEBBAY, DEO, 17, 1890, DOtfE iS flttEMtfE OOtffif, Wfeek Mostly Demoted to the Stlilclrti case—Criminal Matters. Court was occupied last week- almost •Wholly bjr the Schichtl divorce case, Which has attracted considerable atteti* tiott oti account of the acquaintance of th«i parties in this county. Taking evidence began Monday, and the argu- irietits of counsel were not finished until Friday night. Judge Carr rendered his decision Immediately and summed up the case in a manner which won him many compliments from the court room visitors. He gave Mrs. Schichtl her divorce, and also the custody of the five girls, ordering besides that Mr. Schichtl should pay $10 a month to their support. There was much con* flict in the evidence which ranged over the eleven years of their married life, but the specific charge on which the divorce was granted was that of physical violence to Mrs. Schichtl just prior to the birth of her last child. This constituted "cruel and inhuman treatment," as contemplated by law, and secured a decree. Both parties are well known and have their friends. Mr. Schichtl is now traveling agent for a nursery. Mrs. Schichtl is a resident of Algona, where she has made many friends in the past five years, and where she is known as a hardworking and deserving woman. Geo. E. Clarke and S. S. Sessions con- ducted the case for the plaintiff and -'John Cliggitt of Mason City for the defendant, and it was throughout a hard fought and well contested suit. THE CRIMINAL. DOCKET. The criminal cases on the calendar were soon disposed of. John Smith, who was up for alleged beer selling, was dismissed. The case against W. B. Smith for assault was continued. The case against P. Wood, the package man, . is continued pending the decision in the United States supreme court. Chas. Johnson, up for selling beer, was dismissed. W. Fender, wanted under indictment, is not arrested. Chas. Stewart paid $85 fine and costs in justice court and was dismissed. The. appeal .of Gregory Studer from a fine of $26 for assault was settled by his paying. $10 and costs. John Alderman's case was dismissed, being settled, also Jas. O. Armstrong's. OTHER EQUITY MATTERS. A default divorce case was settled by the judge last week, Alice Fullerton of Emmetsburg getting a decree. The case of Michael Donovan vs. the 'Pugsleys occupied a day. It was a " ciaim ,that defendants had trespassed on plaintiff's lands with a herd of cattle, ' but the defendants satisfied the judge that they did not own and were not responsible for the herd. Geo. E. Clarke and W. B. Quarton tried the case. . The case of G. S. Church vs. J. F. Lacy & Co. had a day's hearing. Church had had a team of Lacy to drive to the north part of the county, and the day after he got back the horse died. Lacy sued for the horse and Church left the case with a lawyer, but it was overlooked and no answer was filed. A default was taken by Lacy, and Church wants the matter opened up so that he may make a defense. The matter was not decided by the judge, as the evidence was not in. THE JURY CASES. An amusing trial was that of DeFord vs. the Curtises. It was brought to get the defendants off from plaintiff's land, and also for §25 damages. At the hearing Monday the old gentleman Curtis conducted his own case, after trying to secure three lawyers. He forgot to file any answer, and on this account the court instructed the jury to return some damage against him, which they did Monday night to the extent of $1. The old gentleman told the witnesses they could be sworn or not, just as they liked. When any of his evidence was objectedto as " incompetent" he always remarked "IJcnowIam incompetent," and then asked the judge whether his questions were proper before he put them to the witness. When he got to tho jury, he made his speech largely in a whisper, so no one in tho room knew what his argument was. Yesterday morning 1 the case of See- berling vs. A. D. Clarke was called. Mr. Seeberling held a lien on some land bought by Mr. Clarke. He said Mr. Clarke was to assume tho debt, and Mr. Clarke denies it. J. C. Raymond and W. B. Quarton tried the case, which resulted in a decision for the plaintiff. Seeberling vs. Busa was a suit to recover for a mowing machine, which Busa said was worthless. The jury staid out last night. J. C. Raymond and W. L. Joslyn were the attorneys. A LONG SESSION. Court will continue' this week at least. It is the longest session held here for years. Judge Carr, as usual, is making a fine impression on the bench, and his popularity in the district is being noted over the state, The following item is going the rounds: " Judge George H. Carr of the Fourteenth judicial district, comprising the counties of Dickinson, Emmet, Kossuth, Clay, Palo Alto, Buena Vista, Pocahontas and Humboldt, enjoys the popular distinction of having been re-elected at the late election without even one vote in opposition, having no opposing candidate, and no scattering votes being cast." Court Reporter Grier makes his first visit this term, and is a genial gentleman as well as an expert stenographer.

The taking away of Charles Hardie to the insane asylum at Independence, Tuesday morning, says the Reporter, may properly be termed the sad sequel of a life. The besetting sin which has brought Charles Hardie to where he is today is only tlw same that has ruinec the lives of hundreds and thousands be* fore him, It has left a physical, mental, and moral wreck, and this last act in the drama of life is nothing surprising to those who have sadly etched the inroads of the accursed flro tha,t has consumed his manhood. It does not require the vivid imagination to picture a prosperous beginning of Charles Satdte r s business life. Possessed of a strong ahd robust manhood, a consider- ible amount Of property,* a kind and oving wife, the future must indeed lave- been full of bright promises, tfow it is all gone and the once strong man is carried away to the maniac's ipffie; and there is but one cause for it ail, and even those who have been gong down the road with him need not nquire the reason why. On Monday night the insane commissioners declared vtr. Hardie insane, and on Tuesday Sheriff Jacobs took him to the asylum. EROM THE OOtjNTf TOWNS, Wesley* WESLEY, Dec. 1B.--C. L. Lund and J. K.

Bancroft, Register: Kbssuth county ought to b divided, but as this can not be done at pres out it will bo well for northern Kossuth tc move for an additional county seat, It is to far for people living in this part of th county to go to Algona to pay their taxes to see the board of supervisors about high ways and other matters which require a 1 tentiou. Too much time and money is spou going and coming, and the matter can b easily remedied by establishing a count peatheFO. Jf this is not done, »n effort t< have the county seat removed to Burt wil robably be made so as to accommodate the eople In one end of the county fts well as nother. Burt Is about the center of the ounty, and unless the northern part of the ounty can have a county seat of its own 10 change to Burt ought to be made. At- ona is all right as a. town for county capi- al, but it is too far south to accommodate eople living tip here. A meeting of the eople of northern Kossuth • will probably e called this winter to talk the matter of nother county seat over, and obtain the entiment of the people. Greenwood* GHEESWOOD, Dec. 15.—Mr. Hethershaw s shipping poultry. Mr. Bumhart sold Ors. Searle some hay t $8.50 per ton on the ground four miles vest of Bancroft.
