They'would not continue long if there was no money in it. E. W. Donovan of Fenton has lately received one of the regulation propositions, which he sends to us. It does not vary in the least from all that have preceded it. • The swindle is so apparent that it is wonderful that it proves a tempting bait. J. W. Sullivan returned from Chicago last week, but Jo. Cordingley remains three weeks for treatment for what is pronounced enlargement of the liver. He was examined by Dr. Nicholas Senn, the best known surgeon in the city, and is under his care. THE UPPER DES MOINES was in error last week in stating that his trouble was pronounced a tumor by our local physicians. All Jo's friends here will hope to see him come back, well on the way to full recovery. A. H. Paine.has a curious law suit today before 'Squire Taylor. Some time ago he was garnished in a suit against a couple who were supposed to have some money coming from him. He told the sheriff he owed, them nothing but he was cited to appear in court and did not do it. Accordingly judgment w<as taken against him, by default for the amount, some $26, instead of against the debtors, and last week an execution was levied on his goods, chattels, hereditaments, etc., etc., and he was about to be mulcted when he entered a vigorous protest. The matter will be heard, Danson & Butler for plaintiff, and Sullivan & McMahon for Mr. Paine, and be settled today. He says it is all he wants to do to keep his own bills up, without paying other mens debts. SHELLY & PETTIBONE, MARBLE Head Stones, * Monuments, {SfSee us before you contract. DR. L. A.
