THIS IS ALBERT RAHM'S REWARD Jury Said He Was Guilty of Attempt to do Great Bodily Injury—Other District Court Matters. The jury found Rabin guilty of assault with intent to do great bodily injury. The maximum penalty is one year in jail or a $500 fine, but not both. Judge Quarlon sentenced him to a year in jail at hard work, and in a half hour's vigorous talk told him how he was regarded in the community. The hard work will bo provided and if Rahm can reform this penalty is as likely to bo effective as any. It is to be said in his behalf that neighbors in other parts of the county than Prairie speak well of him, and that when ho is away from his old friends and from liquor ho is a peaceable and hardworking man. The case was hotly contested and the verdict is quite a victory for F. M. Curtiss. The other Rahm and Roskopf were both acquitted. ANOTIIlOli LUND CASE. Mrs. Carter, aunt of F. S. Stough, bought a mortgage for §1,400 on Chas. Anderson's land purporting to have been made by Mr. Anderson to Frank Chandler. Anderson says the mortgage was forged by Lund and that he never made such an instrument. He sued to have it set aside, Geo. E. Clarke and J. W. Sullivan appearing for him. F,. V. Swotting for Mrs. Carter defended. The case was finished Monday. Col. Burnap of Clear Lake was over as an expert on hand writing. BUFFALO CKNTEB FIKE TROUBLES. Geo.'E. Clarke has been retained by Westenhaver Bros, of Buffalo Center in a curious fight over insurance. The insurance adjuster has selected a referee and the Westenhaver's one, but these two cannot agree on a third, and so it stands. Both sides have suggested several men but none that the other would take. After 10 days the merchants will invoice on their own account and begin selling again. The matter will probably be ended in court. SELLING DEUGS WITHOUT LICENSE. Jake Goederlz and Jo. Jogerst are both under indictment for peddling drugs without complying with the state law. They have given $300 bonds each and will be tried next term. COURT NOTES. The famous Sexton dog case will be decided in the May term of the supreme court. The Dr. Lacy case against Kossuth will be settled soon in the supreme court. The Frink cases from Wesley have not yet been submitted in the supreme court. The time of final settlement is uncertain. The Bonn fence case is still hanging in the supreme court. This is the case where the cyclone blew down the Northwestern fence and the Bonn horses got on the track and were killed. M. Richardson sued Wheeler Bros, of Germania for buying grain of a renter, claiming landlord's lien. The jury were convinced that he had waived his lien and brought in a verdict against him. He sued for $300. Prof. Lilly is appointed by the court to locate a government corner up north. A section of land is involved in the location. Court adjourned last evening ti)l Friday. It will reopen for Friday and Saturday. W. E. Bradford was over from Britt yesterday to defend a Hancock man named Turner in a suit on an old note brought by E. V. Swotting for M. Richardson. The defense was that the note had outlawed.

MATHEWS' NARROW ESCAPE, Gets Scorched In n. 1'Iro nt Sjioncer nncl Saves) Ills Store by Vluclc. The Spencer Reporter tells how tho nervo of Algona's former druggist in Sheet 1 /.' store saved his store at Spencer: Last Friday morning tho passers by were suddenly attracted by a dense black smoke pouring out of tho front door of Mathows & Co.'s drug store. Several rushed in to learn the cause and assist in putting out tho lire, but the choking black smoke made it dark as night inside and few dared the attempt. The trouble arose from a gasoline stove on which was melting a can of carbolic acid crystals. Tho acid must have become too hot, and being a product of petroleum, ignited. When discovered by Mr. Mathews the flames were leap'ing almost to the ceiling. Near by on the shelves were bottles of ether, chloroform, and many other high inflamables that in a few moments would have bursted and then the store would have gone up in tho smoke with all the frame buildings on that corner. In one heroic moment Mr. Mathews grasped the hot stove shutting out the thought of the gasoline explosion that might occur at any moment, and choking the pain from the heat, rushed the mass of flames out the door. In this act his hands and face were burned considerably but not serious. Save a little scorching to the rear door, no damage to the building- resulted. For cool-headed, presence of mind and nerve, "Brick" is ahead of anything in this town for some time, and he has tho satisfaction of knowing that he saved several thousand dollars worth of property by his wise and prompt action.
