A lawyer's law suit was tried at Emtaetaburg last Friday before Judge Quarton. Lawyers conducted it and lawyers furnished the evidence. It arose out of the suit of JBdith WhtJe- lock of Algona against the .town of West Bend for $l,tt)0 oil account of injuries received from falling on a defective sidewalk, Barney Kelly was secured to defend for the towtt, and after putting in time and labor In preparing a defense, luckily stumbled upon a technical point which shut the plaintiff out and stopped the suit. As soon as this point was reached a disagreement as to fees arose, and the present suit was to collect $250 out of the town for the services he had rendered. Morling of Etntnetsburg and Geo. E. Clarke appeared for Barney ,. and Botsford und Mike Healey of Fort Dodge for the town, and it .was the lawyers of all the Milwaukee road towns against Fort Dodge as to the reasonableness of the charge, The Fort Dodge lawyers all swore that $100 was enough, while the outsiders said $250 was little enough. Geo. R. Cloud and J. W. Sullivan were over from Algona as witnesses, and a Court room full of lawyers were present. The jury after deliberation brought .. in a verdict of $210, which was considered on both sides as a victory for Barney. The costs amount to over $200 more. The West Bend Journal feels deeply aggrieved at the testimony in Barney's behalf as is evidenced by such comments as the following, which are scattered through its columns: If some of the attorneys who testified for the plaintiff in the Kelly case Wednesday at Emmetsburg could be bought at the actual value of their services and sold for what they appraise them at, the profit would be a competency for any reasonable man. A Curious Law Question. Judge Quarton has returned his decision in the case of Bollard vs. Healy, in which Bollard was trying to recover pay for one half of a brick wall. The history of the case is given by the Pocahontas Record as follows: About two years ago Col. Healy concluded he would build on his lot which joined Bollard's building, and he put up a building one story high and only 26 feet long. Bollard claimed that Healy should pay him for one half of the entire wall, while Healy would only admit that he was indebted to Bollard for the value of the wall that he used. Judge Quarton decided that Col. Healy's view of the matter was right and returned a verdict for the amount of the value of one half of the wall that the colonel is using. The decision will be of interest to all those who desire to erect buildings in the business portion of towns. _____ Some New Towns for Kossutli. Blue Earth Post: We see by the Ledyard Leader and Elmore Eye that G. W. Pangburn, the Elmore attorney and real estate man, 'is to be the father of a new town in Iowa, which is to be known as Pangburn. It is seven miles west of Ledyard and six miles from Swea City, in a very beautiful and fertile section. Our friend "Pang" owns something less than a thousand acres of land in that vicinity and we congratulate him upon having his name perpetuated the same as Dustin. We expect soon to see the northern parji of Kossuth blossoming with the beautiful villages of " Pangburn,'' "Carey," "Basmussen," "Tayjpr,"and " Moore," for they are all hustlers and have done much toward settling the northern part of that county, peppered by Lightning, Over about Emmetsburg the lightning in the big Friday storm picked put live stock with a vengeance.

There are horse flies, bottle flies^ house flies, and a great many others which I will not mention, including mosquitos. We will see all of them before the snow flies. There are no flies on Doxsee's screens. He has screen doors—and windows and -wire screen cloth. Pa says many Christian homes have been shattered by not having screens at the doors and windows, and they are so cheap this year that no one 'can afford to have flies in his soup for dinner, and hash for supper, unless he likes flies. His spring hinges and door springs will shut a door quicker than a fly can think. This is all I have to say about flies.
