'/^'C&S " ''",'*.Wfi^f tCTJBB ALC?QMA f IOWA, •IBAf KKOfTY UW POINT, ; is 1 Qnestion of Jnl'Isdictlon, tfttdge ThottlUB id Stoldiiiff tt for Fftf the? Light, , MlSCfellafiftous Matters ift CoUtt Ar« poSed Of—Cbtltt AdjdilrftS fof the f rftseni. , Judge Thomas did not {iftss upon the dispute ovef the rights of Minnesota , pltfties to Use the Iowa ctftivts "to wash thelf dirty linen," as Ged< E. Clarke called it, It seems that S. E. McMa* hen ftad H6t Judge Cook Is responsible for* this interesting controversy. Gar- tey is a section man at El more and his wife was treated by Dr. Jacobs. She did not get well and Garvoy thought she was not properly treated. Mr. -McMahon brought the action for him and told the Officer to catch Dr. Jacobs over the Kossttth line some ti me and get service. This he did and so the case came to out 1 courts for hearing. Mr, Clarke's motion to send the parties hack to Minnesota., where they pay taxes to support theooui'ts, was argued all , day, Mr. McMakon making the argu- >ment to sustain the suit. Judge Thomas has notified the attorneys to cite more authorities and will fahnselt look -, the matter up before passing on It, but : he notified both sides that if he had - any right to send the suit back to Mln- * nesota be should do it. It is the nicest question raised In some time and is a feather in Mr, AI«Mahon's legal cap. C. W, Brown IB Mnd. '•, \ G. W. Brown, who lives in some -other town, sued Frank Nicoulin for $160 for services in selling some land. In sending his papers he got them mixed . and sent the petition to the sheriff and the notice to the clerk. When he was notified of his mistake lie got mad and said the officers were monkeying him. Then he filed his.petition in the right office but forgot to file a copy, "and on motion of Mr. Clarke his case WHS dis- .missed. When he begins again he will begin right. A Steliiuer Note Deal. Mrs, C. H. Boals sued Mrs. Henrietta Carlon for f 100 due on a note. The • facts developed that N. J. Skinner had ' secured the pnpers from Mrs. Carlon "• 'and that she hud paid the money to him. He had turned them over to Mrs. Boals,but had not paid them off. ; Judge Thomas released Mrs. Carlon from any obligation. J. C. Raymond was her attorney. - A similar case is C. H. Boals vs. W, Ferguson. We hear that Mr, Skinner is now in Texas. An Old Divorce Matter Dropped. An old case entitled Caroline Ward " vs. Arthur Ward has been hanging fire for years. It wns brought to secure the children left with Mr. Ward. Judge Carr kept it. along as si club over .the defendant to secure good treatment to the children. At this term it was dismissed at Mrs. Ward's cost. It is reported that she is now married again to a man in Rockford. The Pants Goods Shrunk. Two interesting cases were John McCann & Co. vs. F. M. Evans for $65 and John Wilson for $75, Both are cloth peddler cases, the goods being scant measure, and In Wilson's case the Chicago house where he had it made up on •MoCann's recommendation, never sending back the goods, suit, nor even a pants button, S. Mayne is defending Wilson. The Holms Get a Now Trial. ' Judge Thomas granted a new trial in the Bohn fence case. This brings it on 'again at the next term, but the jury -'will not get another chance to inspect •\the posts on which Judge Carr and "Judge Cook expended so much elo- , quence. Matt.'s furnace has long since -.reduced them. Mr, Clarke will be in ', the case at the next trial. Beimler Heard From, The outcome of the awl stabbing at Bancroft was a suit for $1.000 damages by the stabbee, Mack. Mrs, Beimler 1 'appeared and got a continuance for her ,.

Shadle got his divorce from Rose Shadle. Judge Thomas dented D. C. Chase's taolion to lake the case to Webster City and granted a divorce. S. S. Sessions was Mr. Stmdle'a attorney. Ed. James, the boy who was caught taking goods from the home of the notorious Stelser of Hurt, was not indicted. He has been in jail some months. It Was thought that he was not the guilty party. Hay & Bice have a suit against Z. H. HomringhaUs 'of. Clinton for a failure on his part to complete a trade. Judge Thomas transferred the case to the Clinton court. Judge W. f I. Hays is Hotnringhiius' attorney. Ralph Johnson vs. Ralph H. Johnson raised the question whether a suit begun for $150 in justice court could go on by the plaintiff cutting his claim to $100. Judge Thomas held that the justice would not got jurisdiction. Carson, Pi rio, Scott & Co. pot a verdict of even $1,695.83 in the Frlnk case.

DB, GABPIELD IHJUBED. Ills First Serious Runaway Accident In a Practice of Over 5O Years. As DtvGarfield was coming south in front of the Hohn farm in Plurfi Creek last Wednesday afternoon the south passenger on the Northwestern frightened his horse, which is the same one Mrs. Dr. Garfield and Miss Simpson were overturned by some weeks ago south of town. It ran some rods when the buggy began to tip over and the doctor jumped out, His feet were tangled in the robes and instead of getting well out he tripped and fell on his left shoulder, which was dislocated. He picked himself up and walked 80 rods to the house and sent to town for medical aid. As Dr. McCoy was not at home at the time he did not arrive until after 7 o'clock, and Dr. Garfleld says that the pain during that time was almost unendurable. As soon as the dislocation was reduced he got into the wagon and came home, where he is still confined. He says, however, that he will be up town shortly, although his shoulder will probably bother him for a year, The doctor will be 70 years old in June, and for over 50 years has been driving horses. This is his first injury in all that time. If his feet had not been tangled this time his unusual agility for his years would undoubtedly have saved him, " '• ^ i~ l " i "' ^*'^\^'%T^^f$^Sjjj§ b v/ ^;.: ; '^M^P boas to Pltiffi Credit >»n* day morning at 10 O'clock* She leaves % 0 Sons Ih the county, JAntt Wftfttef pf Sdtieda, &bd MafrisoB Warntlf, tlies^ home »as frith hep.
