Diphtheria is as prevalent as at any time
yet, and it is supposed that all schools
will remain closed till after the holidays.
A confectionary and fruit store has
been opened up in the building owned
by Capt. Palmer, on lower Main street.
It will be known as the ,,ChritrnasFair,"
nnd will be under the management of
Mr. Philip Kraus. Mr. S. P. ICersth, of
St. Louis, will act as clerk.
Mr. F. C'orsej', formerly foreman
in the canning factory of Mr. F. Carruth,
is now successor to Mr. Rusch at the city
water works pump house and in the city.
Although the position is a responsible
one and a trying one, yet we believe Mr,
Corsey will, to the lest of his ability, fill
the bill. We are sorry to lose Mr. Uusch
as he proved himself during his stay here,
a va'uable citizen.
Yesterday the report was circulated
that the wife of Mr. W. J. Warrick was
sick with diphtheria and not expected
to live. Wo are glad to know that the
rumor was false and that she has entirely
recovered from her seige of sickness.
She and two younger children who were
atllicteu with diphtheria a short time ago,
were all convalescent at the time of the
death of the little girl.
A partially powdered face in the
post-office which the reporter was obliged
to gaze upon this morning nearly startled
him at first thought. It reminded him
of " a lively Egyptian mummy's head
floating around in the air, aud the second
time he looked he thought of a wall par
tially whitewashed, where the whitewash
was distributed unevenly. One would
judge that the young lady had just re
cently discovered the beautifier for years
made use of by our young ladies, for she
was far from being up to the average
one in decorating her face.
Sunday afternoon about 3 o'clock a
fracu3 of a serious nature was about to be
indulged id by a crowd of I -thlehemites
near the watch house on the Iowa terminus
ous of the B. & M. bridge, when a jus
tice of th5 peace there suddenly put an
cud to the p irley. As is generally the
case where guns are pulled, a woman is
at the bottom of it, s it was then. A
man named Kenison tried to persuade
his son to thump a couple of young fel
lows three who had insulted his daughter,
and effective work was about to be com
menced when Ju-ticc of the Peae Ellegc
appeared upon the scene. He command
ed Kenison to consider himself tinder
arrest, but the man resisted him and was
about to p'unimi 1 him as the others, when
the officer pulled his revolver and order
ed him to surrender. We immediately
wilted. The men had their trial yester
day at Pacific Junction, but the result has
lias not been reported to us.

The School Ca8.
The school case which was brought
up fur trial several times and was finally
continued until yesterday morning, oc
cupied nearly the whole day and was very
interesting. It was tried before Judge
Clifford and a jury of six business men
of the city. The suit was brought about
by iir. J. Woodson, proprietor of the
Cottage House, against Prof. (Jeo. Chat
burn, principal of the high school, on
account of a whipping he had given his
son Tommy for disobedience. Although
the boy was badly marked up, as was
shown in the evidence, yet he was not
seriously injurcl in any way as was testi
fied by two physicians who were employ
to examine the boy. There were many
witnesses on the case, among whom were
several of the lady teachers of the high
school who testified that the boy had
been under their instruction and that
they had, as a rule, found him to be very
unruly and hard to manage. Miss Saf
ford, who is hi3 present teacher, called
the principal to her assistance only when
the boy would not submit to her, peace
ably. When Mr. Chatburn arrived and
took him in charge, he was allowed ten
chances, as the boy testified, to do the
work set before him, which was to write
three hundred words, as a punishment for
misconduct. Mr. Chatburn swore that
after he had struck the boy over he
limbs but five times when be flatly refus
ed to obey, that he did not strike him
more than three or four times after that
without allowing him an opportunity to
do his work. Mr. Chatburn was accused
of striking the boy oa the back and car,
cutting it so that it bled profusely, but
he swore that he did not strike the boy
on cith-jr place, and had been very par
ticular to only whip him on the legs,
Several of the lady teachers testified that
they saw the lxy about an hour after the
whipping, riding around the streets on
horseback, which statemeut the boy ad
mitted, which goes to show that the
bruise he bore were not of a very serious
nature. After the jury had been addres
sed by the defense, no one present doubt
ed but that the verdict would be as it
was, "Not Guilty." The jury were
unanimous in their verdict and agreed in
a very few minutes. If tho case had
gone in favor of the prosecution,"and
if the boy would again attend school, the
bc-t teacher in the country would be
obliged to resign, as the whole school
would consider tlionisclves unpunishable
and graduate as a baud of outlaws; but
as it i.', such trouble will not probably
occur aain with the same pupil. All
right thinking people will say that the
cae v:n justly treated and that the jury
acted wisely. Although the plaintiff
cannot understand how the jury returned
the yediet it did, there are many who
