Goodlad, a sto'ne masoti of the town, and the man held is J. W. Arnett, a blacksmith, who moved in about two months ago from Pleasant Plains, 111. The two men came together in front of the barber shop opposite the Stubbs hotel, were in the gutter together, and when Arnett walked away Goodlad was stabbed a half dozen times, some being very deep slashes. Arnett walked across to the hotel, washed his thumb, which had been cut, and was going to a sociable when he was arrested. He was taken before Justice Easterly, and asked for time to secure counsel. Hearing was postponed until yesterday and no bail was allowed, and-Arnett was brought to Algona, where he was put in jail. ABNETT'S STORY OF THE AFFAIR. Monday THE UPPER'Diss MOINES interviewed Mr. Arnett, who was per* fectly willing to give his version of the affair. He is a pleasant-looking young man, probably 25 years of age, and far from blood thirsty in appearance. He said that there had been some rivalry between himself and Goodlad, and that the latter felt aggrieved. Friday evening he had gone into the hardware store and Goodlad 1 began picking a quarrel with him. After a few words he left and went to the barber shop. While there Goodlad came and called at the door, asking him to come out. When he was out Goodlad asked if he wanted to hit him, at the time holding his hand at his hip pocket. Arnett said he did not. Other words followed and Goodlad struck him on the neck, throwing him off the sidewalk into the' gutter and coming on top of him. In this position he drew a knife that had been left in his shop to be riveted, and which he was taking to the owner, and with it defended himself, being undnr Goodlad all the time. While down G. Guttknecht grabbed his arm. As soon as he got from under Goodlad he walked to the Stubbs hotel, washed his thumb, which had been cut, and was then arrested. Arnett's neck bears some ugly marks where Goodlad hit him. The knife he used was a heavy jack-knife with a blade about three three inches long. THE GOODLAD VERSION. Monday evenin? the reporter visited Burt and found Mr. Goodlad on a lounge in the Peck hotel. He was resting easily, but did not care to talk, and Mr. Guttknecht, who was with him during the fight, told his story. It seems that about a month ago Arnett came to some social gathering and played the banjo, or played at it, and the boys joked him about it, and so the trouble began. He talked about cutting somebody's heart out, etc. Friday night they were ut Perry McDonald's and Goodlad got oft' a joke about Arnett. Arnett said out on the street that he would punch his face if he said that out of doors. Goodlad then walked to the barber shop, where Arnett had gone, and called him to the door and asked him if he wanted to whip him. Arnett struck at him several times and Goodlad caught him by the coat and neck and both fell in the gutter, side by side, Goodlad rolling on top. The whole thing was over in a '.second, and Goodlad did not know he was cut until he got up and felt the blood running down his back. Goodlad is a good-looking young man, about Arnett'a age and a little heavier. THE CURRENT RUMORS. Both Goodlad and Arnett are members of the Good Templars' lodge, and both have friends among the Burt people who lay the blame on the other. Some say Arnett has threatened before to cut people. At the close of the light he threatened to cut Guttknecht and waved his knife wildly. On the other hand it is also claimed that Goodlad admitted after it was all over that he was out for a row and got it, and got what he deserved. It seems that more blame rests on the boys who egged on the fight than anybody else. At Perry McDonald's Goodlad said he was spoiling for a fight, or something like it, Arnett out on the street said if he had heard that outside he would have smashed his face. Then the boys went to Goodlad and told him what Arnett said. Then Goodlad followed him to the barber shop and called him out and asked him about it. Some say Aruett told him to go away, that he didn't want a. row, and that Goodlad grabbed bis coat and jerked him off the walk. Some say Arnett had the knife open all the time and struck with it while they were still standing, etc. In any event it was a fight that had been set on for some weeks. Dr, Beane sewed up the wounds, one of which required several stitches. One out he said would have been fatal if it had gone a quarter of an inch deeper, The examination was set before 'Squire Easterly for yesterday, but he was called away by the death of his father, and by agreement of both sides it was transferred to 'Squire Taylor's court in Algona. THE EVIDENCE HEARD. Justice Taylor opened couvt at 1 o'clock yesterday in the court room, and a large number from. Burt and Algona heard the testimony. County Attorney Raymond prosecuted, and WB. Quarton and E. H, Clarke represented Arnett. Among the witnesses were Guttknecht, Moore, Will McDonald, the Sohaffev brothers, Gep, Beard, Den. Paine, Clark and George Coffen, Dr. Beane, Miller, Ferris, G. V, apd. Marshal Wilder. TUe stovy o£ Ar nett was substantially c&rrobflra JoJlQysrtd Wi» tft shop, called him but, called him ft cow ard, and when he told him to go away and leave him alone, caught nlta afld pulled him out. Justice Taylor, after hearing the arguments, said he could not hold the defendant, and intimated that the row had been brought about by meddlers and go-betweens, Many who heard the trial burst out in applause when the decision was rendered. A HOUSES, Mow the Mails Wero Caffied Clettf Lake to Algona In 185?. John M. Brainerd, who taught school in Cerro Gordo county during the famous winter of 1857, writes a report of'the great blizzard in December of that year for the state historical department's publication, The Attnals of Iowa, and in it gives an interesting reminiscence of "Capt." Hewitt, who lived at Irvington at one time, and who carried mail around from Clear Lake by Big Brush, as Forest City was then known, down by Buffalo Grove to Algona. As H. H. Bush once said, nothing but cranes could travel straight across from Clear Lake to Algona in those da.ys. George Taylor, Mrs. J. E. Stacy's oldest brother, carried the mail at one time, but Hewitt was the stage driver best known in that section:, "A weekly mail was carried from Clear Lake to Upper Grove, in Hancock county, across an open prairie Of 25' miles; thence to Algona, crossing a wider stretch of open country, a total distance of 60 miles. The contractor! for this work was-Hewitt, an old Indian interpreter and thorough pioneer. He was 63 years of age, but strong as a man of 40; with ruddy face, bluff, hearty manners, and physically as "tough as a pine knot." In preparation for his winter journeyings it was his custom to set up in the fall, oak poles at intervals of about 300 yards, their leafy tops being retained; and these wore his guides when the storm howled across his path. His mail cart was canvas-covered on all sides, with small port holes for the reins to pass through, sockets for candles on the wooden supports, and plenty of fatty provisions. Thus armed, if his team gave outafter nightfall, it was sheltered on the lee side of the canvas; he lit his candles for warmth, ate his provisions, and wrapped in buffalo robes stood out the siege until morning. With such thorough preparations death need not have happened to any settler; but the proverbial heedlessness of frontier people seldom impelled them to make them. They trusted to luck and to their "jedgment" of the weather, much as sailors are reputed to do, and often with like results. But these were the men who pioneered the way for our modern farms, with artificial groves, furnace-heated houses, and defiance of the worst storms. Their memory and their fate are worthy of a better pen than mine." FRESH cocoanuts at Langdon & Hudson's Try . . . .
