It holds that when a woman suffers an injury to her foot or ankle and sues for damages that she must exhibit the wounded member to the jury. Minnie Hall fell from a sidewalk at Hanson into an excavation. She sued the town and alleged that her foot bones had been broken and her ankle seriously, disabled. The doctors differed in their measurements, but the court refused ,to order the young lady to expose her foot to the jury. She was awarded $2,260damages. Now the supreme court reverses the case and says her foot should have been seen: "It was proper to resort to the practical plan of taking these measurements in the presence of the court and jury. * •* * There is nothing 'indelicate in the measurement of a foot or arm or ankle in a proper case." Judge Robinson dissents and says: "The request of the defendant was that Mrs. Hall remove her shoes and stockings in the presence of the jury and we" may presume before a large audience of bystanders, in a crowded court room for the single purpose of having her feet and legs measured in such a manner that the jury might see it done. In my opinion it was not only within the power, but the duty of the district court under the circumstances shown to exist, to refuse to allow the desired experiment to be made. As it appears to me it certainly would have been indelicate, if not positively indecent, and would have been shocking and repulsive to any modest and sensitive woman. It was not shown to be necessary. * * * The opinion of the majority, while disclaiming the adoption of a rule applicable in all such cases, does in effect hold that the district court had no discretion, and that in all similar cases the defendant may as a matter of right require a woman whose injuries are in question to partially disrobe herself in the presence of the court, jury and members of the bar, and possibly a court room full of bystanders, and raise her garments sufficiently high to permit each of the 12 jurors to see her legs six inches above the ankles, and that this may be done, even though other evidence is at the command of the defendant, and at hand, which may show that the exhibition is wholly unnecessary. I can not assent to such a holding." .. Hunting; n Lost Child. Great excitement was caused at the old Capt. Austin farm 12 miles south of Britt last Sunday afternoon over the sudden disappearance of a two year- old child. Diligent search by the parents failing to find it, the neighbors were raised and the farm and adjoining farms were searched until dark without avail. The Tribune describes the excitement which followed: The whole country was then aroused and systematic search was begun through cornfields and stubble. Close together like, an army they marched, 160 of them, men, women and children until daylight and still no trace of the missing babe, Monday morning the people flocked in from a distance of ten miles, on horseback, in wagons, and carts, on foot they continued their search and at 4 o'clock on Monday afternoon the little chap was discovered sitting in the oat stubble, playing with a couple of sticks as unconcerned as though nothing had happened. He was not a half mile from the house, and where he was hidden all that time or how it happened that he had escaped through over 24 hours of organized search will always remain a mystery. Fortunately Sunday night and all the time he was lost was as warm as June, A few nights before the child would have been chilled to death in an hour, Such another demonstration is rarely seen as the one witnessed when the child was found. Men, women and children shouted and cried together and the parents, thoroughly exhausted by the long search and mental strain, were simply too happy for utterance, Notice to Bonk Robbers.

THAT WESLEY OHUBOH TROUBLE, School Director Brewster Nolls Up the Wesley School House to Keep Rev. Plummer Out— To Be Heard In Court. It seems that the fine of $50 assessed against Chas. A. Brewster for breaking up a Methodist meeting over in Wesley is not to end the trouble. The Reporter saya: Rev. Plumraer last Sunday found the Brewster school house looked and the windows nailed down. The officers of the church went to Algona Monday to have a writ of mandamus served on Mr, Brewster to compel him to open the school house for religious service. Brewster however has the satisfaction in knowing the writ will not be issued before the December term of court, but the church people think they can wait, "as the mills of the Gods grind slow but they grind exceedingly fine," THE IPEAfc PANACEA.
