having provided the occasion with
cueh an array cf good things to eat,
which we-re thoroughly enjoyed by
the men folks, young and old, gathered
around the banquet board. The ban-

JUDGE BEGLEY HELD A
A BRIEF SESSION OF
DISTRICT COURT FRIDAY
"A rough house" is what spectators
at the house night session were
treated to Friday night. The osteo
paths and chiropractic regulation bills
were before tha house and all the
trouble was stirred up when op
ponents, few in number, tried to ad
journ to prevent consideration of the
bill. The house refused, and Peterson
of Lancaster started a filbuster which
raised a commotion, says the Lincom
Members received an illustration of
what chiropractic can do for a person
when Kime of Cass made a speech,
his maiden effort, in which he explain
ed that, he had been on his back, the
chiropractors had come to him and
nelped him. In fact Mr. Kime made
several speeches which few could
hear, and had never tried to do be
fore he had been sick, and the chiro-
prators had treated him.

the chiropractors, declaring that this
gentleman could well afford to stay on
the job another day for his pay, and
pointing out that he was at the mo
ment on the floor. Mr. Kime took
exception to the remni-ks and made
a long speech to Hoffmeister, the
tones of his voice reaching only those
nearest-him, but the gestures being
very loud. Occasional remarks drift

The Court of Last Kesort.
Ve have leceived a number of in-
q'drics from out in the country as to
the amount of judgment recovered by
the county against Sheriff Quinton,
mention of which was previously made
in these columns when the two repor-
ate suits were decided. In the first
Cms the sum of S412i; was awarded
n the mattcrof the disputed fees, and
a the second $01.53. making a total
of ?.0 L-12. These involve the fees
which were in disnute Ix!Lwr-n Iho

Ki-r-m Satur.iav's Uarty.
The district court yesterday at its
c:;sion passed on a number of mat
ters, and in the case of Cass County
s. Carroll D. Quinton, case No. 6427,
die court found for the plaintiff in the
um of ?i.'l.G3, with interest from
late at 7 per cent. A motion of de-
'endant for a new trial was overruled,
as well as a motion of plaintiff to in-
rease amount of judgment. The costs
of the case will be divided equally,
each one paying their share.
In the case of William Dunn, et al.
vs. Eva Elliott, et al., on motion of
defendant, the court ordered the ten
ant on the farm under question, Dixie
Kirkpaif ick, to pay into the court all
rents due and owing within ten days,
and the clerk of the court was in
structed to notify the tenant.
