From Friday's Daily.
The much-discussed case in
which Oliver Osborn was the de
fendant, charged with having sold
whisky to Sandy Andrews, is now
numbered anions the thins of
the past, and the interest which
was aroused over the matter has
subsided, as Justice Archer yes
terday afternoon handed down a
decision in favor of the. defend
ant and dismissed the case with
out further consideration. There
was much conflicting evidence in
the case and both the complain
ing witness and the defendant
gave testimony that was directly

would testify to, and it left the
case where it was merely a ques
tion of which could be believed.
These kind of cases are very dis
agreeable to handle, both for the
,x-.uwrt-niitl . t he at,tornev involved.
as there is always a prave doubt
as to which is right in the mat
ter. It is to be hoped that this
will be a pood lesson to all that
will not be forpotten in the future
and both can avoid the pitfalls
that are likely to pet them into
trouble. One of the features of
he case yesterday was the testi
mony of "Dr." II. M. Younp, who
proved a star for the defense.

A New Flint Mine.
An ancient Hint mine lias been
discovered a few miles west of
Nehawka by A. A. Mclteynolds of
that place. While it is not so
extensive as others in that vi
cinity, of which there are seven.
it is an interesting find. These
mines, composed of over 300 sep
arate and distinct pits, and an
area of somethinp like 15 acres
of surface actually quarried,
comprise an area where at some
time (how lonp ago no n:u
knows) a vast amount of work
was carried on in procuring tin
flint used by pro-historic man as
weapons. These dippings are of
a very great ape and a well known
archeolopist has ventured to say
that they were worked before
Columbus ever saw America. An
oak tree nearly three feet in
diameter, which is growing from
one of the pits, is only one of
many bits of evidence which
mutely testify to their great ape
