This morning the case, of Herold

months ago and on one cause of
action, a new trial wa3 granted,
was taken up this morning by Judge
Pemberton and a jury. The case is
presented by Matthew Gering for

The jury in the case of Mefford
vs. Zoz this afternoon when court

half miles. He paid $100 per acre,
or $16,000 for the quarter, and be

(.'(Kid Ice Weather.
The sharp, cold weather of last
night did a lot of Ice making and
this morning the small boy was in
his element as skating on the back
waters from the Missouri fiver was
fine. The Ice is smooth with no
snow or sand on it and if it should
remain this way for a few days the
best skating in years would 'be had.
The thermometer last night crawled
down almost to the zero point bul
was rapidly coming up this morn
ing, owing to a change in the wind
which is blowing from the south.
At eight o'clock the thermometer
at the depot stood at eighteen
above, not nearly so cold as many
thought. Trains are all late this
morning ns usual, No. 6 from the
west being fifty minutes late and
No. 15 from the east some fifteen
minutes late. The M. P. train from
the south this morning was on hour
late. The cold weather with Ice and
snow works hard on the fast trains
as they cannot keep schedule time.
Indications are that the weather to
day will moderate and that a period
of fine weather is in Bight.
The Lucky Man.
Wescott's held their weekly un
veiling of the clock yesterday af
ternoon at 3 o'clock and they had
the usual big crowd present to Bee

employe of the Burlington shops,
carried off the money, he holding
ticket calling for 4:29:34, while the
clock stopped at 4:G3:G6. The next
unveiling takes place next Wednes

In which it casts reflection upon the
county board of commissioners.
We ns a board denounce the charge
as false. ,
The bill of goods she bought
amounting to $700, she said she
could have bought the same bill of
goods from another firm for $350.
The commissioners would like to
know why she did not buy them
there, as she had the authority to
buy where she wished. She also
made the 'statement "that she did
not deal on as large a scale as some
of the commissioners would like to
have." If this is a fact, why did
we as a board cut the claim from
$750 to 450?
She also makes the claim that she
would like to know what is going
on in her office. If she is not famil
