will - remember that aome time ago Mra.
Wagner'a young' ton appeared at the back
door of Mra. Brown'a residence and, aiu
aumlng a" formal air, delivered hlmeelt
of the fojlowlng:
"Mra. Warneka compliment!, ma'am, and
could you lend her the loan of a doten
Mrs. Brown could and would and did.
At thla time, tt mutt be carefully noted,
eggs were ! worth 4 1-1 cents apiece, or 50
ci Ms the- dosen.
Tern pus fugited along after the. habit of
t tii pus ffr In these many '- years, -and
prrntly he bottom dropped out of- the
egg market. The price fell to JO centa a

date her Indebtedness. The boy once more
appeared at the back door, a dosen eggs
In tow, and of ft red them to Mrs. Brown.
That voimd refused the tender and do
mr.nded two and one-half doaen. that being
the preseftt equivalent of the orllnally In
veitd W cnlt.
' Forthwith the matter got Into court. A
riltsburg judge sidestepped the "grave
a. onomic .Question" Involved and contented
himself wlfh binding both women over to
keep the peace.
This sidestepping has necessitated the
local Investigation and th opinions of the
Duuglas county judges are herewith set
Mast Favar Mra. Wagaer.
A majority of the local jurists opine that
Mra. Wagner made sufficient tender, but
there are one or two exceptions.
Bi,mewha,t astonishingly Judge Howard
Kennedy U inclined to think the matter
mall anil of little Importance.
"It reminds ma," aatd ha, "of that i-a
Involving 12 22, which 'came before "Judge
Button .In .Washington county and which
he offered to settle by paying the $2 11
am' the coats rather than try U.'
"If It were to be a really fair trial,"
ays Judge Sutton, "the oass ought to be
heard by a Jury of women, all of them
housewives. They would know what Is the
established custom In these cases."
Judge Day was willing to admit' that "a,
nice and fine point Is Involved and glad
that It won't come bafora ma."
Judge Leslie of the county court had his
head full of the Connor will case and when
approached deftly got from under by say
ing ha "would rule on the question If It
ever comes before me."
Judges Redlck, Beers and Troup were un
sympathetic toward Mrs. Brown and held
the tender sufficient, but Judge Estelle
could sympathlae at least with her point
of view. "Suppose Mrs. Wsgner had de
faulted payment entirely," he argued.
"Mrs. Brown would have sued for JO cents
find won, would she not?"
IamI Mrs. Browns will do well accord
ingly to have their case tried before Judge
Kstelle if possible.

nised among all Indian tribes, but where
the Indians become citisens of statrs In
which polygsmy is Illegal, the question
arises at onca as to the legal status of the
different groups of children."' said Mr.
Chase, "The present case is one wherein
the 'ohief was legally married,, reared a
family, and subsequently took a concubine,
from whom wera other offspring.. The
chief died leaving two groups of children,
and the question now arises whether the
children of the concubine shall participate
In tha estate equally with the children of
the legal wife, both of whom are living.
"Tha question Is one that has never been
brought to the attention of the Vnited
States courts, and I am here to consult
with the court and qualified lawyers as
