But Geo.E. Clarke appealed to the jury that any mule Was worth more than that, that was worth foreclosing a mortgage on, and a verdict of $48 was returned for the egg- shaped quadruped, Br6. Gallagher had the costs to pay, TURKS FROM WHITTEMORB. Last week THE UPPER DES MoiNES reported the doings of some Turks from Damascus. But we were in error as to their place of residence. Whittemore claims them, or rather they claim Whittemore. One of them, Ellis Abdo, wanted a divorce from Annie Abdo, the couple having met unexpectedly in Algona, and she having accepted service, expressing her willingness to part with her leigeTord in a flow of oriental profanity which nearly set fire to Attorney Cloud's office furniture. Another woman, who evidently enjoys Abdo's affections, acted as interpreter for the court and was so anxious to get matters straight before his honor, that she did most of the testifying herself, forgetting to ask the questions or report the answers. They all swore to Whittemore as their residence, and were granted a divorce with some reluctance on Judge Thomas' part. ' • , MORE BOOT-LEGGEHS FINED. Thos.

Bierstedt, Silas Roupe, etc., the indicted school directors ol Lotts Creek, all pleaded not guilty, and will fight the case brought against them. Geo. E. Clarke is their attorney. They will be tried naxt term. : BUTTON GETS CLEAR AGAIN. • On account of a failure to get some of the evidence against J. L, Sutton before the jury, he got clear from his blue sky deal, Judge Thomas taking the case from the jury. Sutton was in Des Moines and notice that witnesses not before the grand jury would be called was served on his wife. Judge Thomas held that this was not such notice as the law requires, and shut out the testimony. Sutton says that he will now have the man he traded with sent up. for selling mortgaged property. A HIGHWAY CONTEST. At some time a half mile road was laid across a piece of land owned by J. B, Hofius. He has farmed the land, road and all; for enough years to vacate it, he thinks. But this year the road commissioners decided to open it and work it. He enjoined them and wanted the injunction made permanent. After a full argument Jud ?e Thomas held that the public had not accepted the highway, never having opened it, and that it could not how be opened. C. D. Ward had a case similar, the same road crossing- his l«nd. Both cases were decided, J. W. Sullivan represented Hofius and Ward. DR, LACEY VS. KOSSUTH COUNTY. The motion to knock out the order Dr. Lacey is suing the county on, which was being argued as we went to press last week, was not sustained by Judge Thomas and the case will now come up on its merits, unless the county stands, It is possible that the supreme court will be asked to pass on this question before anything-farther is done, The county proposes to test the whole matter and know what can and what cannot legally be done. ' DR. FELLING INDICTED. DThe grand jury found a charge well founded against Dr. Polling of Whittemore, who was tried for abortion before Philip Dorwejler not Jong agp and discharged. The complainant is Mrs, OUie Randall, a daughter of C. Nellis, Her testimony seems to connect the doctor not op!y with a criminal operation, but also with an attempt to win her away from her husband, Sheriff Samson went to Whittemore Monday to arrest the doctor. MINOR MATTERS. The GermanJn creamery sued Geo, Strable to compel him to take some stock it was claimed be had agreed to take, He beat tlje company, Nelson Crawfprd bad s, claim against the Wbittemore creamery, but it was settled out of court, ' J. M. Walker, Tbos, Banna, A, jr. Leonard, C, Ward and W, W. Rapney are the grand jury, . , * The petitioners to have a, road through D. H. Hutches' jand in kptts Qreejk, dismjsjped their case.

Cloudj Judge Quartern's successor, appeared in court for his first time in Algoha at this term and proved himself ah experienced and able lawyer. He has already stepped Into a good practice and will gain as he is Better known. Judge Thomas was anxious to get away. Monday, and Judge Quartoti closed his term for him hearing equity cases yesterday. • KATE FIELD. Kate Field lectures in Algona, Friday evening, on Alaska. Her cominff gives a local Interest to the recent decoration conferred upon her by the French government. She was made, about three weeks ago, a commissioner of education for France, This Is, as she is informed by the chief of the French legation at Washington, "the highest distinction the department of public instruction can bestow for service rendered In literature and art." Kate in her letter of acceptance, says: I will not affect modesty, preferring to emulate the example of that eminent diplomatist and lawyer, the Hon. Edward J. Phelps, who, after listening to his own praises at a banquet in New York, replied that he "had quite mado up his mind that it was far pleasanter to receive plaudits than to have the merit to deserve them." Accept my heart's assurance that I am profoundly grateful to your government for decorating me with the palms of the academy, the possession of which will be a constant inspiration. Perhaps the longing to be so Helps make the soul immortal.

In It she expresses her opinion on a great variety of questions. It reaches THB UPPER DES MOINEB table and from a recent number wo clip the following in reference to Dr. Parkhurst of New York: It has often been said that women and clergymen are unfitted by sex and profession for politics and that all reforms instigated by them are purely sentimental aud impracticable. I have always answered to myself "that depends on the women and the clergymen. types of both will make the best politicians because they are actuated by the highest sense of duty. Combine a keen conscience, sympathy with humanity and intelligence, and the result is,the ideal citizen. If the ideal citizen cannot understand and purify politics, there is no health in the republic and it mustdio of corruption." Here is an interesting story which she tolls: Henry Watterson was a staunch union man down to the day the civil war began, but when there was no longer any help for it his sympathies parted company with his judgment, the former going with his section and the latter with the union. "My opinion of the southern confederacy," he said, on one occasion, "was like the Irishman's recommendation of his horse. He declared that ' the baste has only two qualities: he is devilish hard to catch, and he Isn't worth a d—when you catch him.' " -•"*Kate is a sister of Eugene Field of the Chicago News, easily the best poet and story writer of the west. Some of his poems about children are classics. Here is his " Dutch Lullaby ": Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night Sailed ott in a wooden shoe,— Sailed on a river of misty light Into a sea of dew. "Where are you going, and what do you wish?" The old moon asked the three. " We have come to nsh for the herrinc-flsh That live in this beautiful sea; Nets of silver and gold have we," Said Wynken, Blynken; And Nod. The old moon laug» cu uuu DUUK » ouu As they rocked in the wooden shoe: And the wind that sped them all night long Ruffled the waves of dew; The little stars were the herring-fish That lived Jn the beautiful sea, " Now cast your nets wherever you wish, But never afeard are we I" So cried the stars to the fishermen three, Wynken, Blnken, And Nod, ' All night ^ng their nets they threw For wie flsh in the twinkling foam, Then down from the sky came wooden shoe, Bringing the fishermen home; 'Twas all so pretty a sail, it seemed As if it could not be; And some folks thought 'twas EV dreaii they'd dreamed Of sailing that beautiful see; ' But I shall name you the fishermen three: Wynken, Blynken, : And Nod, Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes, And Nod is a little head, ' And the wooijen shoe that sailed the skies Is a wee one's trundle-bed; So shut your eyes while mother sings Of wonderful sights that be, And you shall see the beautiful things As you. rock on the misty sea Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three,— Wynken, Blynken, An4 Nod, We have Metal G-oods in great variety; Celluloid, Plush, and Leather Goods, Juvenile Books, G-ames, Etc.
