Terms, with THE Urrfen DBS MOIKES, $4.20. A. A. Brunson and Jus. Molnroe woro on tho witness stand in the Miles Sweney Insanity case in Dubuque last Wednesday, to testify us to tho actions of Swonoy in Algeria. Our readers will retnombiu' that ho escaped his guardian and eurno up to sue-his wife and children, and was brought before our board here. Mr. Brunson was very vigorously cross-examined and told all that occurred In Algona. Ho testified that in his opinion Swonoy was insane. Deputy Mc.Tnroo was still more vigorously examined, as ho had expressed tlio opinion that Stvoney was sane, and aflerward said ho was Insane. It seems he did not find the man out until ho took him down to eeo Mrs. Swonoy and the children. Ills self donli'ol thyii gave way and ho broke out In u wild spasm. Mr, Mclnroo at Dubuqu.) impressed tho opinion unequivocally that ho was Insane. Mr. BruiiHon saya there wore three lawyers on each sldo and that tho court house was packed. Wo clip from tho Dubuquo piipers some of the proceedings. Tho Telegraph says: In tho case of Miles Sweney, tho woll- Icnown farmer of Holy Cross, charged with Insanity, a jury was secured In district court Tuesday evening after tho regular panel had been exhausted, and tho taking of testimony begun this morning. Mr. Sweney is dofo'nded by Longuovlllo & McCarthy, Henderson, Hurd, Daniols & Kiesel, and Hubert O'Domiell and Powers, Lacy & Brown, and Lyon & Leneman appear for the other side. It is charged that Mr. Swenoy has'been squandering his estate and abusing his family, things he would not do if he were in his right • mind, and that he has been guilty of many insane nets. His alledgod derangement is referred to tho pounding on tho head he received hero some years ago whon robbed of $1,000 by Charnplin and Wells. There are twolvo lawyers of record in tho case, though not all of them are actively engaged in tho trial. The court Wednesday morning heard arguments on an objection to tho evidence of Mrs. Sweney. Tho defendant's attorneys hold that a wife could could not testify against her husband unless ho had committed a • crime against her. The court held that while this was true in criminal cases, the practice did not apply here. This was a proceeding to ascertain, for his own beuelit, whether Miles Swonoy was insane. If he was, and his wife said so, she would do him a favor. The court added that ho would not tolerate her testimony to this effect if ho believed it prompted by selfishness, or any other motive than her husband's good. "Wo don't want to be tolerated, your honor," said Mr. Hurd; "kick us down stairs if you want to." Tho trial then proceeded, Mrs. Swenoy testifying to tho strange conduct of her husband in several instances. The following notes from tho Du. buquo Times are of interest: Tuesday afternoon tho ex-county clerk, A. A. Brunson, and deputy sheriff, J. E. Molnroe, of Kossuth county, • on tho witness stand to testify to tho actions of tho defendant while ho was in their custody nt Algona. Tho cross examination of Mrs. Swe- noy was concluded and tho prosecution allowed tho defense to place Judge Murdock on the stand in order to allow him to return home. Ho said that he had known Miles Sweney four years and had scon him very frequently. Ho had talked with him during tho last fow days. He know Miles to be an erratic man, but had noticed no differ- once in him. Judge Murdoek is a member of tho board of insane commissioners of Clayton county. Minnie Swe- noy, daughter of the defendant, was on the stand in the afternoon. The trial promises to hang on for at least two weeks. A large number of witnesses have been summoned, including live or six physicians. Loans Abstracts of Title. Comfort nnd Progi-cns. "I think that man gets less comfort ont of life than does any other animal," said George McDonald, a guest of the Southern. "Life for him Is a continual battle from the cradle to the grave. What happiness he finds in the companionship of loved ones is more than counterbalanced by the pain of the inevitable parting. Poverty, ambition and greed are scorpion whips, goading him ever to exertions beyond his strength, until at last he sinks, worn out and weary, before he reaches what should be life's high noon. His very diversions are taken in a feverish, hurried manner, as though he begrudged the time thus stolen from business cares. And the higher the position of a people in a scale of civilization the less of poetry and pleasure do they appear to find, the more stubborn and unrelenting the battle for existence With tho lower animals life is a luxur v —simple existence a pleasure. "The barbarian makes holiday whiK- civilized man slaves all day, and then out watches the bear. True it is that only by constant endeavor is progres.- possible, but of what value is thai progress which makes of man an unhappy slave, toiling always beneath u lash more cruel than ever fell across tin- back of Lacedtomonian helot or African bondsman? Of what benefit are triumphs that we cannot pause to enjoy? Our pace is becoming too rapid. Wo are trying to crowd the labor of centuries into decades."—St. Louis Globe- Deinoerat. Top Notch of York Farm Ufo. John H. Small, of Chauceford township, York county, owns three farms in that township, aggregating 900 acres, and five other farms in the county. Ou the three farms which immediately surround him immense crops of grain, hay and tobacco are grown, and the beautiful location and the very high cultivation which these lands have attained under Mr. Small's personal direction and care make his premises a "garden spot" in the old county of York. Tin- farm buildings are elegantly planned in the most modern style. He has forty- five acres in tobacco, with an average yield of 1,600 pounds to the acre. In one year he fattens 225 head of cattle—all sent to European markets. This part of his farming industry is so complete that none of the cattle is taken ont of the stables until ready for market. Mr. Small has his own grist mill, where the feed for his stock is ground. Ou all the eight farms his operations are supervised by himself. He employs many men, and everything is done on the most liberal and extensive scale.—Lancaster Inquirer. Why She Thought Ho Waa Failing. . "I am afraid you are not so strong as you used to be, John," said a fond wife to her husband. "I think it is about time you were getting some insurance on your life." "Insurance on my lifel What are yon talking about? I am as healthy as ever I vras. Insurance, indeedl" "Well, dear, I only mentioned it, you know, out of respect to yourself. I thought you were failing." "And what in the world put it into your head that I am failing? I failing? Why, I am as strong as a horse, and can run up three flights of stairs without taking a breath." "Well, that may be so, but I am afraid you are deceiving yourself." "Deceiving myselfl Goodness gracious, woman, what do you mean?" "Don't be BO impatient. What makes me think you are failing is this: When you were courting me you could hold me on your knee for three hours; now you cannot hold the baby on your lap three minutes."—London Tit-Bita.
