C., Monday placed blame for the bus-train crash at Mason City in which ten were killed on the driver of the bus.

FALLS ASLEEP AND GAR GOES INTO A DITCH Services Sunday are Attended by Wesleyans. Wesley, Nov. 29—Wesley and vicinity were shocked beyond measure Friday morning, when, word was received here of the accidental instant death of George Orbell, 25, coach jn the Wesley high school, who had gone to his parental home at Randalia for the Thanksgiving holidays.

The grand jury was discharged Wednesday evening as the court recessed for the Thanksgiving vacation. A charge of driving while intoxicated, brought against Carlye Johnson, was dismissed by the grand jury, which refused to return an indictment on the grounds of not sufficient evidence. The grand jury was composed of Walter G. Smith, foreman, William Runchey, August Vaudt ST., A. C. Holtzbauer, J. H. McGregor, Simon Henry, and J. C. Mawdsley. The first case set for jury trial is a damage suit brought by L. C. Schichtl against P. M. Erickson. The case is arousing some interest because it arises from a collision between a car and a cow on the road. The car was driven by .ry Johannsen Jr., and Mr. Schichtl was a passenger in the back seat. It collided with a cow owned by Mr. Erickson south of Hobarton at 6:45 a. m. April 19. and Mr. Schichtl suffered a broken shoulder bone and a wrenched back. Mr. Schichtl asks $500 for pain and suffering, $35 for doctor's bills, and $350 for loss of time recuperating from the crash. In an answer Mr. Erickson asserts the accident was caused by negligence of the car driver in not missing the cow, of which he admits ownership. Another Accident Judgment. A judgment was given Arthur Pehrson, of Swea City, against Ray Hauenstein for $376.50 last week when no defense to a suit was advanced. The case was based on an accident two miles south of Algona when the two cars collided ab the Hauenstein car turned out to pass a hayrack. A case set for trial sometime this term is a car-.passenger damage suit brought by J. L. Campbell against Ed Wilson. The former was a passenger in the Wilson car when it struck a bridge. Jfo Cushions for Jurors. It had been expected that petit jurors listening to cases at thla erm of court would sit in new cushioned seats recently purchased by the board of supervisors and which were delivered a week ago. However, investigation of the chairs disclosed that they were not according to the order, and hence the shipment is standing In the courtroom wbile the supervisors are endeavoring to have the correct chairs sent. The new chairs were supposed to have a leather cushioned seat and back, but came with only the back cushioned. They are to be permanently fastened to the floor with screws. The new chairs are the desk-swivel type, and jurors can lean back or swing to each, side for comfort. The courtroom has been lacking in chairs for many years, and when a jury retires to the jury room to discuss a verdict the members must take their chairs with them because of the scarcity. New Weekly Paper Begun at Spencer Spencer has a new weekly paper called The Times. The first number was issued last week. The publisher is Kenneth Randall, whos& father was for many years a Spencer newspaper man. The Randall paper was the Reporter, but two or three years ago it was sold to a company which converted it into a daily. A few months ago the Reported absorbed its only competi- ;or, the weekly News-Herald, and this created the opportunity wbicft young Mr. Randall has Beiaed.
