Ramsey has arrived at in the case, i Matthew Gering to assist the County
and the complaint which will be filed
at once will bo charge him. Mr.
Ramsey la looking after some fur.
ther evidence in the casa which has
come to his notice and when this
has Icon examined itls his Intention
to file the complaint and have Clar
ence arraigned. He yesterday au
thorized tho announcement that he
had studied the evidence over care
fully enough to feel that It would
warrant the filing of a complaint
charging the most serious of crimes.
Ho would not stat6 what thla evi
dence was but that it la very grave
must bo certain or this complaint
would never be filed.
It la more thau probable the com
plaint will be filed either Saturday
or possibly Monday and the under
standing la that the defendant will
bo arraigned and plead to the charge.
The preliminary examination will no
doubt take place at that time or as
soon after aa it will be possible
to get the witnesses together. There
can be no trial of the case until
May term of court and should tho
defendant bo held for trial on the
first degree charge, he must stay In
Jail as thla charge la not a bailablo
one. If the court should not find
him probably guilty of the first de
gree charge but hold him for mur
der la the second degree or man-
Attornev In the prosecution. It Is
probable that he will take an active
part In the preliminary examination
and certain that he will aid In the
prosecution of tho case In the dis
trict court. Hyron Clark has been re
tained to defend Clarence, he hav

Clerence la said to take his con
finement in good shape and to be sat
isfied to wait until hia case can be
reached, lie does not seem to be
much worried over the ultimate out
come of the case and la confident of
acquittal when he comes to trial.
The complaint against him would
hove been filed much sooner had it
not been for the pressure of work
In connection with the Ossenkop case.
This being laid over for several
weeks, County Attorney Ramsey Is
now at liberty to turn his attention
to the buislness which has piled up
In the office. There are several ad
ditional matters of consequence pend
ing In his office which he expects to
get to and dispose of before tho Oa
senkop matter conies up again. There
are several criminal matters in which
no complaints have been filed but
which tho parties interested in are
urging for hearing and these will
bo looked Into and such action taken
as the circumstances Justify.
1 )oe 1'ootl Agree With You?
We often find people wlt'u seem
ingly f ood appetite, but the food does
not seem to agree with them. It does
not make them stronger; they feel
hungry soon after a good meal. This
is not a healthy condition, because
useful particles cf food leave the
body with the waste and are of no
benefit to it. It shows that the di
gestive system is too week to retain
and assimilate the food. You must
strengthen it with Triner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine. It will give
satisfaction in curable diseases of
the stomach and the bowels. It will
make the digestive organs work reg
ularly and the food will then cer
tainly agree with you. It will make
the blood pure, the nerves strong, the
muscles elastic. Use it in all cases
where Jour appetite ia nut natural,
where you are losing flesh and
weight, where you feel tired without
cause. At drug stores. Jos. Trin

Being Bitterly Fought by Relatives
in District Court
The contest over the will of the
late Samuel S. Johnson of Elmwood
opened In district court here this

Lively Time of It
Yesterday evening the saloon of II.
Hand On Main street between
Fifth and Sixth streets, was the
scene of a bloody battle between
Rand and John Harkins in-, which
the former, judging from his appear
ance, got very much the worst cf the
fray. Harkins Invaded the saloon
n a seemingly ugly frame of mind
according to spectators, and started
n to create all tho racket and noise
possible. Rand, who Is running the
place for the Blata Brewing Company,
tried to quiet him, telling him he
wouldn't permit such a disturbance
In hia house. Harkins failed to
choke off his uproar and Rand start
ed to eject him. Forthwith there was
doings aplenty. The air was full of
fists and swaying bodies and when
A circle gathers every night.
Say ten odd or more
Around the big invitin stove
In Stuz's grocery stjre.
Counters and chairs take
The place uv fine settees,
An' here the circle spends its time
In Stuz's groeeryvstore.
Here's where the farmin's carried on,
Here's where the hay is raised.
Here's where the cords uv wood are
An' where the stock ia grazed.
Here's where the monstrous clams
are dug ,
Instead of 'lone the shore,
Creat deeds are done around the
In Stuz's Grocery Store.
Tho women folks around the town,
'Low if these great affairs
Would only happen close at home
They'd all be millionaires.
But while they're luggin' coal
Or wocd out uv doer
These waniprs are fightln' ellll
In Stuz's Grocery Stcre.
They nights they come, the nights i
Spring, Bummer, winter, fail,
An' still they meet there regular,
The setters one an' all.
I'd tell you more uv what they do
An' rake theni fellers o'er,
But, I must go an' take my seat
In Stuz's Grocery Store."
