The case of State vs Jed Mooney, charged with cattle stealing was fin ished up in the county court Tuesday afternoon and Judge Grant dismissed the case on tho grounds that Mooney did not tako the steer with the felon ious intent of keeping it. Several wit nesses for both sides were heard. It seems that one of a bunch of steers which Mooney was feeding had strayed away and joined Neskott's herd and that Mooney went after it but got the wrong steer. When he discovered that ho had the wrong one ho decided to call it i trade and branded tho steer that he had brought home. He left word with Heskett'i men where he was taking tho steer and told them that ho would not leave until the next morning and the suit was tho result. Heskett is a resident of Lin coln county, but Mooney lives over the line in McPherson county.

An drew Lang quoted the case of n poor highland woman who wrote to her son In Glasgow. "Don't bo thinking too much of us. or 1 shnll lie seeing you some evening In the byre."

Practically any exercise, if carried out with the correct degreo of moder ation, will accomplish those results and so deserves tho term "beneficial exorcise."

Henry!" The prlnco did not understand thnt the hnll was meant for him until tho admiral, smiling broadly, said. "Your loyal highness. I think some one wants to speak to you." Then Prince Henry looked over to ward the human megaphone, who still continued to bawl out his name. See ing that ho had caught tho royal gaze, the owner of tho voice shouted.
