Cloud has just concluded a egal preceding, which while never in court, still has an interesting story attached. Some years ago two brothers, Philip and Franz Arnold came from Germany and bought eighty acres of land near St. Jo., the deed to which was in Philip's name. About two years ago while working in a well Franz was killed by bad air, Philip administered the estate without legal aid by simply taking possession of the lersonal property. A few weeks ago Mr. Cloud received a letter from the Herman consul in Chicago stating that he mother of the boys in Germany was very poor and that as she was the egal heir of Franz, if he had left any iroperty, it would be a great benefit to ler to secure it. She was unable to my even the costs of a. proceeding and ihe. consul advanced them. Mr. Cloud lad nothing to go on but rumor as to ihe ownership of the land, except that ihe boys had divided the crops, and Philip was not inclined to admit that Tranz had held any interest, In Mr. loud's office, however, he finally iftlked freely about the matter, claim- ng, however, that he was entitled to all advance in the price of the land above ?8 an acre, and that he had paid n taxes more than his brother's in- ierest would come to. This converea- iion was taken in shorthand by Miss Richardson, and once secured made ihe remaining steps easy. After Philip found that the admission of Tranz* ownership settled the matter 10 canie up last week and made a deed to forty acres to his mother, and the old lady will soon be rejoiced to find lerself the owner of a good piece of Kossuth county soil. The German has been notified, Sale or Trade, My residence property, 12 room house splendid barn, coal and wood house, good well, and cistern, and hydrant.

Gildtrsleevt at Webster City—The Races Generally. The big race of last Wednesday was he one mile dash. Five horses tarted but it was Gildersleeve, Ben. Smith's handsome stallion, against the eld, With Ma M., Jo. Cobper's hahd* otne tnare, and Me Too, the Sioux Ity record holder, in the field, tokomo started and also Ansel Jr. 'he real contest was to be between rildereleeve and Ida M., as both orses are owned in Germanta, are ull brother and sister, have never run gainst each other, and have owners with a feeling of rivalry. But an ntoward accident at the start spoiled be race in so far as these two were oncerned. Ida M. did not run. Her riends say 'she did not get a fair hance at the score and that the horses Vere started with her having no pos- ible chance, Others, however, say hat her rider was jockeying the other lorses and tiring them with false tarts, and accidentally got under the vire on the gallop and reined up with- ut noticing that the flag had dropped n him. In any event he galloped a Ittle way and came back. Gilder- leeve soon led the others and made is mile in 1:49, which is fast time on my country track and especially so lore where the track is 144 feet long on the mile. Me Too and Kokorno ran well and close together, coming in as named. above. Ansel Jr. was a slow ourth. The outcome of this race is a private match between Gildersleeve and Ida M. for $100 a side on a mile dash to be •un at Webster City next Monday. Both horses are there in the races this week and will remain and have it out. Both are racers, both are in trim, and both want to win. It will be a hot race, Most of the horses here have gone to Webster City. Chas. Smith has taken Belton, who is entered in the 2:25 trot, harlie H., who is not entered, and Gildersleeve. Cooper took Ida M., ihe Glazier horses Jennie Lind and rack Kline are there, Me Too, Kokomo, Ansel Jr. and Jo. Lee are all there. Some of them will be winners in the events there and at Eagle Grove. THE RACES IN DETAIL. The crowd was not large Wednesday. Dhe first race was a half mile dash, Jennie Lind first, Billy Mack second and Jack Kline third, time :52|. The crowd thought Billy Mack ought to win, especially as the time was slow, and it looked as though the races were ''put up." This caused a big kick on .he five-eights dash, which came next vith the same horses. In this Jennie jind and Billy Mack ran so close that he judges called it a dead heat and innounced that if Billy Mack did not run for all that was in him at the next rial he would be given a new rider. He did run as aforesaid, but it was not n him to beat the little mouse-footed mare and she took the race in l:06i, hich was very fast for the track. Belton was trotted between the lashes in the five-eights race an ex- libition mile, partly to break the rack record of 2:27. He trotted in the middle of the track in 2:29} and was not seriously pushed. Belton trots without hitch or break by himself, and f he can hold steady in a race will iush the fast trotters in the state. NOTES OF THE EAOE. Kossuth county has some swift horses. Gildersleeve' and Ida M. for runners and Belton for a trotter are in he A class. The skin game gamblers on the ground did not find many victims here. Almost everybody has bought what experience he wants at chuck luck and -he wheel of fortune, Burgett was here with his Leslie Boy and a race with Belton was talked of, but nothing came of .it.
