INTERESTING SUIT PEND
ING IN COUNTY COURT
From Wednesday's Dally.
Mr. Gregory, of near Murray, was
In the city yesterday looking after
some Important business matters. The
suit recently filed against Mr. Greg
ory In the county court, will not come
up until the first Monday in Febru
ary, that being the commencement of
the February terra of the county
court. There has been some misun
derstanding regarding the merits of
the claim Mr. Young brings against
the defendant, and their books do not
correspond, Mr. Gregory thinks he
will have no trouble In showing that
the discrepancy is on the other side
of the ledger, and there will be some
thing due him when the matter Is
tried out in the court, as he will be
able to show the delivery of more
corn than he has had credit for. Mr.
Gregory has not filed his answer and
will not be compelled to do so until
the first day of the term, but the cas
will be a very interesting one, and
both sides will have an inning, and
then it will be up to the Jury, or
court, to determine the controversy.
TEN THOUSAND PLUNKS
FOR MFFS AFFECTION
Clark & Robertson, as attorneys
for plaintiff, have filed a petition In
the district court for Henry Van
Achen against George Burnhouber
for the allinatlon of the affections of
Van Achren's wife.
The petition sets out In substance
that plaintiff was married to his wife
at Lincoln In 1904 and spttled on a
farm In Cass county, that thereafter
In 1907, defendant began his court
ship of plaintiff's wife and by flattery
and valuable presents and by divers
arts and unlawful means alicniated
the affections of plaintiff's wife, so
that on August 14, 1907, plaintiff's
wife abandoned him and went to
Oklahoma where the defendant re
sides, and there brought suit against
plaintiff for a divorce. The damage
to plaintiff's affections and the men
tal anguish and the public Ignominy
and scandal brought upon plaintiff by
defendant has damaged plaintiff to
the amount of $10,000, for which
sum, with costs, he prays Judgment.
The defendant was In the county a
few days ago long enough to be
rerved with summons so that in the
natural course of events, the case will
be for trial at the next term of the
Chicken Gives Up Nuggets.
During the holidays, Geo. Tlm
blin's family concluded they needed
a little chicken meat for a change. A
chicken was killed and prepared for
the feast, but this chicken, unlike
others, had a gizzard containing two
gold nuggets. The nuggets were
bright and smooth and weighed about
$3.00 worth of 24-carat gold. Now
don't get excited, the story is true.
Mr. Tlmblin has the nuggets, but he
don't know Just where that chicken
was running. He thinks, however,
that as his place is on the old govern
ment trail, that someone years ago
lost a little gold and the chicken
found it. lie don't care to sell his
chickens alive, but will part with
them when their are glzzardless

Mr. A. O. E. Italnard, of near Mur

Big Land Show at Omalia.
Mr. A. M. Axelson, manager of the
Pioneer Land company, of Haxtun,
Colorado, was in the city over night,
having come to Plattsmouth to look
at a piece of property which parties
wished to exchange for lands in Colo
rado. Mr. Axelson speaks In high
pialse of the land show In Omaha,
which he visited yesterday, and will
spend the day tomorrow viewing the
grains and fruits from the western
states. The Nebraska exhibit is a
very creditable one. The Hill sys
tem, the Great Northern, has a great
exhibit from, the northwest. While
the land show doesn't cover the space
occupied by the corn show of last
year, yet Mr. Axelson, who has seen
both, thinks the land show the better
cf the two. The attendance Is great
and the exhibits fine.
