three criminals,-one II. Goos, being
accused of kidnaping a child. W. II.
Mason was placed under arrest for
embezzling $100,000 and Cliff Beggs,
an urchin, arrested for stealing a loaf

with Joe Peters as Judge, C. P. Rich
ards, as sheriff, and A. J. BeeBon, as
public prosecutor. The trial afforded
much cause for mirth. The boy for
stealing the loaf of bread was given
99 years In the pen, although he told
a pitiful tale of how be came to be
reduced to the condition of abject
poverty. Ills father had been a
Woodman In good standing, but let
his policy lapse a week or so before
tie died, leaving the widow arid chil
dren to hoe their own row, and the
boy was hungry and Just took the
loaf. The Judge thought It was hard
luck, but said he hadn't ought to
The kidnaper was turned loose, as
well as the fellow that got the $100,
000, the prosecutor came nearly be
ing sent up for .10 days because he
talked too much.

coffee, sandwiches, fruits, etc., etc.,
After tho program and refresh
ments were disposed of the hall was
cleared and an enjoyablo dance had.

Pome excitement WB9 created on
Main street shortly nfter 1 o'clock
today when tho big blnck marcs be
longing to William Trltsch and tho
largo span of mules owned by Frank
Barkening started olT with a load of
coal. The mares were hitched In tho
lead and the mules on tho wheel and
were being driven south on Sixth
Btroet east of tho Riley hotel, when
In some manner tho driver got the
lines on the leaders crossed and
pulled them short around breaking
the tongue out of tho wagon. Tho
mares then galloped cast on Main
street with the doubletree and a piece
of wagon tongno attached, colliding
cotfs Sons clothing store, broke the
with the glass case In front of Wes
glasa, ran Into the shed back of
Gelso's saloon and stopped.
The driver stopped the mules by
turning them Into the curb In front
of Frlcke's drug store. A broken
wagon tongue and tho glass In the
sign case was about all of tho damago
Mr. C. C. Wescott thinks the ex
citement over the reduced price sale
may have caused the runaway, and
he thinks the horses, even, were try
ing to get In on the bargains, and
barely ralBsed the door.
Mr. John McNurlln returned from
Cedar Crook on the morning train to

The Highest Award.
Amerli-an goods are steaJily gain
ing in favor In Europe and our ex
ports are Increasing from ear to
y ar. Our goods are In some respects
so much superior that they are often
honored with high awards. In the
beautiful exhibition In Alexandria
Palace In London and in the great
exhibition In Brussels, last year,
Trlner's American Elixir of Bitter
Wine received the grand prize and
the gold medal. This Is a new proof
of the excellence of this Amerlvan
product. The manufacturer said that
the hlgest award, he can receive, Is
the favor of the people he Is enjoying
for so many years. It shows that his
preparation stood the test of a long
time as a reliable remedy for diseases
,of the stomach, the Intestines, the
nerves and the blood. It Is a great
medicine In all cases of constipation
and Its consequences. At drug
