I he case of Maud imery was
brought up before the district court this
morning. This rase proved to be more
brief than a large number had expected
to hear. She plead guilty and no further
examination was made in the case except
ing that the judge required tho prosecu
ting attorney to bring up a number of
witnesses in order to prove how much
nuisance and annoyance her house had
afforded the community, in order that
lie might properly ascess her fins.
" 'Lost Em'ly,' an adaptation of
Charles Dickens' 'David Copperfield',
from the pen of Mr. G. M. Wood, is the
latest nove'tr at this theatre. The aathor
is especially deserving of mention for his
impersonations of the characters f 'Peg
goty' and 'Micawber;' both parts are very
artistically rendered and contrasted, and
afford proof of the versatile powers of
the actor. He was "warmly applauded
throughout his extremely arduous per
formance." London Daily News.
The case which held the court all
day yesterday was that of the Gale Sul-key-llarrow
Co. vs. E. G. McLaughlin.
It appears that an agent for the company
had misrepresented some agricultural
implements to this man McLaughlin, who
is a farmer living near Greenwood, and
had talked him into signing a note. Mc
Laughlin had several witnesses who had
heard this agent say that if the machine
did not prove as satisfactory as it had for
the few minutes' test ho had given it to
illustrate- its good qualities, he would
not be obliged to keep it. Howorer, af
ter McLaughlin had taken the machine
and had worked it only a short time, h
found that he had been badly sold on the
article, which he refused to pay for when
the note became due. The company then
brought it into court, and after the wit
nesses had been examined the jury only
went out for a short time, when they
brought in a verdict in faror of defen
dant. Tommie Beverage, a boy about
twelve years of age, had his right leg
seriously fractured immediately above
the knee yesterday afternoon about 3:30
o'clock. Bert Holmes drove a lig up to
Captain Palmer's residence to take Gov
ernor Thayer and wife to the depot to
meet the '"flyer," going through here at
4:20. As he was about an hour to seon
the Governor and wife did not return, so
A large number of school children, as is
the case nearly every day, when any ve
hicle chances to pass at the time school
is dismissed, jumped on the bugiy and
commenced making so much n ise that
the boy's cries could not be heard. He
had caught his leg in the wheel, and was
thrown around as the wheel turned for
nearly half a block. When the he rses
were stopped it was discovered that the
boy's leg was broken above the knee, and
just below it was badly cut. TLi thould
certainly be a warning to those children
who are incessantly jumping on an. I off
of vehicles as they move along the street.
The injured boy wa carried to Dr. Liv
ingston's office, "where hie limb was set
and the other injuries attended to as soon
as possible. i

The present year bids fair to be a dis
astrous one from tornadoes and wind
storms. This is foreshadowed by the
number of storms we haye already had
the most destructive one so far this year
having occurred at Mt. Vernon, 111.,
where a large number of buildings were
destroyed or damaged. The exemption
from tornadoes last year renders their oc
