The rntlro morning session In the district

appeal of the widow of Pleasant Taylor from
the report of the icfcrecs appointed to par
tition and appralso the estate. The value
placed on forty 'acres ' of land given to Mrs.
Taylor was $ -15 an acre , and eho claimed
this was too high. The court , however , ap
proved the report. The heirs have been
having a legal dispute over the partition of
the property , and suit was brought by Mrs.
Mary Gorton to have certain lurccla of farm
lands owned by her'brothers taken Into
consideration while making the partition.
She Insisted that these lands were given
to the other heirs during the lifetime of
their father , and should bo considered In
making the division of the estate. The
court held adversely to her position. J. II.
Mathews , Perry Kcrney and L. P. Jtidson
were yesterday appointed trustees by agree
ment of the various parties to the suit , and
they were- ordered to settle the affairs of
the estate.

Council Bluffs High school foot ball team
took the aggregation of longhalrs from At
lantic Into camp yesterday after
noon at the Field Club park to
the tune of 49 to 0. The odd
figure In the sum Is duo to the desire of
Captain Mather to cater to the crowd and
glvo a little artistic punting In the shape
of a pretty drop kick goal from the fluid.
This closed the decidedly one-sided contest
amid the wild shouts of the wearers of the
red and blue , while the Atlantic boys stood
still and watched the' ' star fullback add five
more to the already Imtuenso score of their
Yesterday's game was ono repetition of
long runs , aided by fine interference. Line
bucking was done almost perfectly , and the
stratagem that the Council Bluffs boys have
up their sleeves was hardly called Into use.
They.are keeping It there for their Thanks
giving struggle with Red Oak. which game
has now become a regular fixed event In
the sporting life of the Montgomery county
Council Bluffs started the ball and made
a good advance on the klckoff. Atlantic
made a fair showing In the first few rushes ,
but was forced to kick after making about
seven yards. Pellett sent the ball to the
left side , and by some good running Hully
recovered It for the visitors. Atlantic was
soon held on downs and then the fun began.
The homo team worked Its ends for two
long runs. Pardy took the ball twenty-five
yards and the balance of the distance , about
thirty yards , was made by Hutchlnson for
a touchdown. Stewart failed at goal.
Score , ! to 0 ,
Atlantic's klckoff was cut down by a good
advance by Pardy. Largo gains by Dales-
man , Stewart and II. Pardy brought the ball
within twenty yards of goal. Will Pardy
was sent around for that distance and the
second score. II. Dalley promptly kicked
goal. Score , 10 to 0.
Stewart gobbled Atlantic's klckoff on the
dead run and ploughed through the field
for twenty-five yards. A few of the custom
ary long plunges landed Mathers , after a
twer.ty-yard run , within two /feet of the
goal. Stewart was sent through , with Ma
thers encircling his waist , like a shot. R.
Dalloy kicked goal. Score , 1C to 0.
Stewart again caught the klckoff and made
a good advance before tackled. Mathers
gobbled up two and a half chalk marks ,
when Hutchlnson followed with a break
through the line In the center of the field.
Ho had been practically stopped , hut the
line In front suddenly gave way and a
big opening left the field clear In front.
Ho was soon headed by Mathers and II.
Dalley. and they guarded him to a com
fortable scat between the goal posts. R.
Dalloy kicked goal. Score , 22 to 0. Time
was then called on the first half.
The second half started the Council Bluffs
boys after a century of scores. All the visItors -
Itors did was to kick off and make a few
desperate efforts to stop the Council Illuff&
runs and plunges. Many a run of the field
was spoiled by Pellett , Atlantic's fullback.
He liatully missed a tackle and kept the
score against his team down at a dozen
points. As the homo team were tearing
down the field around Mathers for their
first score In the Hecond half ho plucklly
broke through a strong Interference and
tackled the runner on the ten-yard line.
Hutchlnson took the ball hero and crossed
the lino. Dalley mlsoed goal. Score , 20 to 0.
The Idckoft was all Atlantic could get.
They novcr once held Council Dluffa on
downs. Gains by Mathers. W. Dalley , Knox ,
H. Pardy , Hutchlnson , W. Pardy landed
another score. Dalley kicked goal. Score ,
32 to 0 , This performance was only varied
once , when Mathers punted for about forty
yards , which waa cut down by a good run
by Pellett. Atlantic win easily held on
downs nnd Hutchlnson scored another
touchdown for Council Bluffs through right
end , Dallcy's kick landed two more , male *

1'rlNoiier I'lcmlN Onllty nnd In Found
Not Guilty.
CRESTON , la. , Nov. 20. ( Special. ) Dur
ing the present term of the district court
Lewis Clem of Shannon City was tried for
burglary. Clem had confessed to the deed ,
and In the prosecution the defense sub
mitted evidence corroborating the defend
ant's confession. The attorneys for the de
fense set up the plea of. Imbecility and en
deavored to establish the Irresponsibility of
the youthful burglar. The case was con
cluded and the jury retired to deliberate.
It returned a verdict declaring that Clem
was sane , but acquitting him of the crime
which ho had confessed. Judge Tedford ex
pressed his surprise at the verdict , and said
If he had the power ho would discharge the
Jury. Clem was released by virtue of the
jury's findings , but his liberty was of short
duration. This morning ho was arrested
by the federal authorities for robbing the
Shannon City postodlce. Sheriff Davenport
will take him to DCS Moines the latter part
of the week.
The attempt to establish the Irresponsi
bility of Ed Nolan , another Shannon City
youth , cousin of Clem , failed. Nolan forged
a noto. The defense set up the plea of men
tal Irresponsibility and by expert testimony
made a strong case. The state fought this
plea hard. The case was given to the Jury ,
which remained out twenty-four hours , re
turning a verdict of guilty.
A. W. Thresher , arrested for embezzle
ment , was dismissed by the grand jury.
The Jury discovered that It had no Ju
risdiction , the alleged crimes having been
committed In other counties. The grand
jury has finished Its labors and adjourned ,
reporting a few Indictments which have
not been made public.
During a session of the court a pathetic
scene occurred. It was In connection with
the Cunningham divorce case. Mrs. Cun
ningham asked for legal separation on ac
count of the Inhuman treatment of her
husband. The custody of the children
was considered. Mr. Cunningham was willIng -
Ing that his wlfo have possession of all the.
children excepting a 10-year-old son , The
judge placed the little fellow on the stand
and asked him , In casej of separation of his
parents , with which would he like to live. The
little fellow looked at his father and turnIng -
Ing to the judge said ho wanted to stay with
his mamma. When asked why , ho said be
cause his papa beat him with a leather
strap. The child laid his head on his
mother's breast and commenced to sob. Thu
court ordered that thu mother bo given Ous

officials from St. Louis that he has novcr
jcen paid for the lots , and he would like
ils money. Ho also objects to paying taxes
on the property since the date of the con
demnation proceedings. The records show
that the ordinance was passed and properly
signed , but no record can bo found of Dud-
ey having been paid anything for his prop

rles have grown larger each year , both
roiu on Increase in population and a do-
rcaEO of a cultivation of wheat. The
and In such countries' ' being more profitably
used for the production of vegetables and
ther crops.
The government'estimate of the 1890 crop
of wheat for the United States Is 394,000-
00 bushels , other high authorities place It
t 425,000,000 bushels. The best author- !
les generally agree that the requirements
or food and egd of the United States are not
ess than 370,000,000 bushels per annum.
This would leave an exportable surplus from
ur last crop of 55,000.000 bushels. The vl -
bio supply on July 1 , last , was 47.000,000
msholti. Allowing 40,000,000 bushels of
his for export and 15,000,000 bushels from
ho Invisible supply wo have a possible ex
portable surplus for this fiscal year of 110-
100,000 bushels. This amount It must be
cmembered could not bo spared without re-
uclng our visible and Invisible supply tea
a lower point than It has been during this
generation , and this could not bo brought
about without a jirlco far la exccua ol any
recent price for wheat being bid for the
last 25,000,000 or 30,000,000 hushels.
During the last five months wo have ex
ported over 70,000,000 bushels , which leaves
only a possible 40,000,000 bushels of export
able wheat to supply cxportatlons for the
next seven months. This Is only a llttlu
over 1,000,000 bushels a week and our
weekly exports are now running at 3,000,000
bushels or more , while enough wheat Is
now owned In this country by foreigners
that to already contracted for shipment to
cause the exports to continue at 3,000,000
bushels per week for several weeks In the
It would seem as though the time had come
when any person owning wheat In the United
States would bo very foolish to sell It at
prtsent prices , as higher prices In the not
far distant future , and , Indeed , much higher
prices Inside of six months are In all rea
son as certain to come as anything In the
future can be predicted.
Europe Is practically forced to have largo
quantities of wheat from the United'States
before another general harvest. There are
no other exporting countries that can make
up to her the deficiency In our own produc
tion. Russia's crop Is admittedly much
smaller than her 1895 or 1S94 crop , and
while she can be a liberal exporter of wheat
she cannot supply as much as Europe has
been getting from her of late years , without
drawing her supplies down to a minimum
point. Argentine Is complaining of drouth
and locusts and her exports for the next
year will certainly not exceed her late
yearly exports , but are more certain to bo
smaller In volume. India and Australia ,
usual liberal exporters of wheat are now ,
and must continue to bo for the next twelve
months largo Importers , owing to crop fail
ures In those countries.
The conditions warranting extreme high
prices for wheat have not been so favorable
during the past _ twenty-seven years as they
are on this crop. CHARLES L. HYDE.

official figures now given out show that
Canton has won In the county seat fight.
Worthing made an effort to have the county
scat moved to that town , and the question ,
which was submitted to the voters , hos been
definitely settled. Canton received a ma
jority of 1,000 votes. The erection of a new
court house , which was held back until the
matter was settled , will probably bo com

now court room Is made plain when the fact
that three grand juries have condemned the
present quarters Is considered.

to the army authorities that wo could rc-
cclvo no more men of the regular army

Coffee drinkers may be Interested to know
the opinion of some competent physlcrJiis In
regard to the use of Postum. the grain drink.
In place of coffee. Let It bo undcratood
that the manufacturers do not decry the use
of coffee by healthy persons , but there Is a
great army of Intelligent men and women of
the present day who cnnnot stand thu
steady , dally poison of coffee , tobacco and
whiskey without feeling the effect In some
serious bodily derangement.
Dr. F. F. OJHsady. editor of the "Medical
Argus , " Minneapolis , Minn , , writes , en
closing the mout-y for a third case , and Is
kind enough to add : "I fully coincide with
your vluws In regard to the UHU of coffee and
tobacco by neurasthenics ( nervous patients ) .
I am using Postum every day and am great
ly pleased with It. "
A great many people who are not keenly
sensitive In their coffee Mates state that
Poutum tastes BO much llko coffee that they
did not notice the difference when It Is
served at breakfast.
The makers do not claim , however , that It
has exactly the same taste as the finest
It lias exactly the same color and Is just
as plqinnt and pungent In Its taste as the
fluent Mocha coffee , but the taste Is distinct
and belongs to Postum alono.
It Is mudo by the Postum Cereal Co. , Llm. ,
of Battle Creek , Mich. , and la not an Imi
tation of any drink , but stands on Its own
footing as a wondcrfuly palatable and do-
llclous table drink , thoroughly healthful
and nourishing and Is made strictly of the
grains. It is Impossible for any ono to
judge of the perfection of tbo product with
out a careful personal test of It ,
Tliero are thousands of people uilng Pos-
tuni , the health coffee , In place of coffee ,
and who have been benefited In tholr health
to nn extent that commands their esteem
and warm friendship for I'oatum.
