A new chapter was added .Monday to one of the most unpleasant domestic broils that has ever been aired in the Kossuth county courts. John H. Ward of Wesley was fined $50 and costs by 'Squire Taylor on the charge of assault and battery on his former wife* The incidents leading up to this latest disturbance were the marriage of the pair some years ago, the birth of four children, and an inability or unwillingness to get along together. A divorce suit was brought by Mrs. Ward in which she charged him with cruel and inhuman treatment, and after un agreement had been made by which he was to keep the children he put in no defense and the decree was granted. Shortly after Mrs. Ward brought a second suit to secure possession of the children, charging that they were not receiving proper care and did not want to remain with their father. In this suit he made defense and made public evidence which, if true, showed Mrs. Ward a scandalously improper person to have children in charge. Her evidence showed that the children were not getting the treatment they should have, and would prefer to live with their mother, but Judge Carr in summing up the case made the moat scathing comment on the conduct of both parents ever heard in court in Algona, and left the case exactly as it was until further evidence of Mrs. Ward's character could be introduced. The case has stood thus until last Thursday Mrs. Ward and her sister came from Shell Rock, where they stop, to see the children, as the original decree had provided for. They found the family at supper, but Mrs. Ward's story is that he sent the children off to do chores and keep away. She followed one to a well where the cattle were being watered. Here she and Mr. Ward had some words and he struck her in the eye and kicked her in the abdomen. His story is that she struck at him and he picked up a little tuft of grass and dirt and threw it at her, and that it may have hit her eye. Mrs. Ward's sister corroborated her story, and the present wife of Mr. Ward sustained his version. 'Squire Raymond prosecuted, while Sullivan & McMahon. and A. C. Ripley defended, the judgment being a fine of $50 and costs, in all $68.50. Mrs. Ward upon being injured came to Algona Thursday and swore out a warrant. She was badly hurt and has been at Hall's hotel since. Her eye is badly bruised and the doctors testified to finding bruises on her body. SUED FOB $3,000. _ In addition to the criminal prosecution Clarke & Cohenour have already brought suit for Mrs. Ward for $3,000 damages against Mr. Ward for the injuries she has sustained. The case will come on at the fall term. VOL. XX1X-NO. 14 New Features of tlie IMumloy Case. A new phase of the much-contested Plumley will matter has been developed by the filing of claims against the estate for services by the Nebergalls. Mrs, Dickinson asks for $1,000, the claim reading, "For services personally rendered in boarding, nursing, and caring for S. I. Plumley and caring for his room from September, 1892, until his death in August, 1893, and in caring for him in his last illness." Hort. Nebergall asks for $700 for boarding, lodging, and personal services, and Roe Nebergall for $100 for personal services, the total being $1,800. These claims are independent of the provisions of the will. E. H. Clarke, who is administrator, has refused to allow them, and they will be contested in court. The decision of the motion for a new trial in the will case has not yet been rendered. Judge Carr comes to hold his adjourned term July 16 and will probably give it then. The WblUemore Burglars. Two men, supposed to be the ones who broke into J. M, Farley's store last week, were arrested at LuVerne yesterday and bound over by Justice R. W. Hanna to the grand jury, and are now in jail here. They give the names of Frank Jefferson and Thos, Ueren, They are undoubtedly the ones wanted, as many of the stolen articles were found where they had been seen to hide them, and were identified by Mr. Farley. They have offered to plead guilty on condition that their sentence will not be more than a year, and an effort is being made to secure there a hearing at the adjourned, aes' sion of court, July 16, John SbsWeen's Troubles. John Shalleen owned the Alderman billiard ball only about three days, but that was long enough for him to get into a peck of trouble. During those daysi he dispensed a health drink without having any government license for selling alcohol, and the United States marshal nabbed him }aet week and took him to Fort Dodge and be is bound over to weet the gr§nd jury J n fo$ fc}l.

The old settlers' meeting Thursday was not big in attendance, but those who were out made up ia enthusiasm what they lacked in numbers. About fifty were present and some of the most amusing of pioneer stories were told and an old-time basket dinner was the order of the day. On account of the rain the meeting was held in the court room instead of in the grove, as at first planned. The election of -officers for the ensuing year resulted in the choice ef L. Witham, president; E. Blackford, secretary; and John Reed, treasurer; victi presidents, Jos. Thompson, J. E. Blackford, Mrs. I. G. Schryver, Mrs. Stella Reed, Mrs. Lewis H. Smith. The next meeting will be held in September instead of June. The rule of membership was changed and hereafter only those who came to the county prior to 1874 will be considered early settlers. As committee on the dead of the past year J. E. Blackford read the following report, which was adopted by a rising vote, Mr. Blackford being continued for another year: Mr. President: I was appointed at the last meeting to bring to the notice of the association the names of those who should pass over the river of death during the year. Would beg leave to report the adoption of the following preamble and resolutions: Whereas, It has pleased an all wise providence to remove from among us the following esteemed members, viz: Mrs. E. A. Taylor, Miss Emma Zahlton, Mrs. Elizabeth Henderson and Messrs. U. J. Hunt, J. D. Davison, and William Johnson. The list embraces the very aged and the comparatively young, and we recognize them all as those who have ably assisted in the material and moral development of our county and as those who are sadly missoj. We miss them as neighbors, friends, and associates. They are missed in the church and Sabbath school/missed in business and social circles, missed by the veterans of the war, missed by the lovers of music, and missed by those interested in education. And how much more are they missed by the fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, and the bereaved children ia the homes they have left desolate. Therefore, Resulved. That we tender to the families and immediate friends of the deceased our heartfelt sympathy in their bereavment. Resolved, That a memorial page of our record be devoted to each of these departed neighbors, that their memory may be kept sacred for all time. Extrava May lie in paying too much for a thing or in paying too little. If you buy groceries for less than we ask, you'll not get as good quality— that's poor economy. If you pay more you pay too much, because we sell the best there are. Grocers/ Langdon &> Hudson. Farm for Sale or Rent.
