State Attorney Gvss,
The trial of the bandits charted with
the robbery of the Overland Limited mall
train In Omaha, May 22, will be postponed
to September 17.
United State Attorney Ooei ha received
a telegram from Bole. Ida., stating that
Judge Dietrich had returned to Boise, and
that the order for the removal of O. W
Marvin, alia Bill Matthews, one of the al
leged participants In the robbery, would
probably be Issued late Saturday afternoon.
Es plaining the postponement, Ooa said
"W have decided not to press the trial
of the mall train robbers next Wednesday,
but to ask for a postponement until the
first day of the next term of court, which
will begin September IT. The probability
Is that Marvin, who was apprehended In
Idaho, will not arrive until Monday. The
delay In t"he hearing on the application for
the order of removal at Boise has been due
to the absence of Judge Dletrioh In Port
land, and I do not think It fair to press
Marvin's case for trial until he shall have
had ample time to prepare his defense. Mr.
Macfarland, attorney for the four defend
ants, has consented to this arrangement."
As a consequence of this agreement.
notices are being sent out to members of
the special petit Jury panel summoned in
this case that their presenoe will not be
needed In Omaha July 7, the date originally
fixed for the trial.

Th Bar association of the metropolis of

with a collation. The collation was hit
upon, after much and slow deliberation,
by th committee on program, as a means
of Inducing the attendance of members.

At a reoent meeting some of the
younger members got started on country
trials, lawyers, Judges, Juries, etc. A
young lawyer who Is building up an en

A lswyer from New Orleans told me
about a Jury trial In a Utile obscure vil
lage somewhere In Louisiana. Of course. I
don't know Just how true the story may
be, but lie looked to me like a specimen
of the eminently truthful sort. Btrange ss
It may seem, the Jury in this trial was
made up entirely of negioe. It seems that
all the available white men were either at
work or had gone hunting or fishing. And,
anyway, It being a case of one negro
charged with stealing fiom another, the
Interest of the white people of the piece
of whom there was a conspicuous minor
ity, was not sufficiently Involved for It to
make any difference.
'When the evidence was all In and the
prosecuting attorney, a white man, of
course, had submitted the case without ar
gument, the accused, fortunately, had ns
counsel the Judge, also a white man, or'
dared th Jury, which could not agree in
the box, to retire to an adjoining room
and find a verdict.
"The Jury retired. An -hour passed, and
still no verdict At last the Judge could
stand it no longer, and went In person to
the room to see what was delaying the
verdict He found each of th Jurymen
orawllng around on the floor, peering
under chair and tables, and also Into cor
ners. Th court was amased. He did not
know whether th whole Jury had gone
crasy or what was the matter.
" 'Here,' he thundered, "what are you
niggers doing?'
"The foreman arose, and, making hum
bis obeisance, answered:
" Yo' honah, taln't no use; we Jes' kalnt
find no vuddiot In die her room. Fact Is,
yo' honah, I doan b'lleb Ore's a vuddiot in
her nohow.'
'"That," said an attach of a firm of cor
poration lawyers, "la as bad as th country
Judge in the Southern part of Wsst Vir
ginia. It was Ms first case, and the
prosecuting attorney had to coach him all
th way. When the case was finished the
pros outing attorney said:
" 'Now, your honor, the next thing Is for
you to oharge the Jury'
"The Judge hesitated for some minutes,
and then said: . ,
"Wall, gentlemen of the Jury, bln' as
this was a short trial and only a hog
stealln' case at that, I'll charge you only
SO cents apiece.' "
The yarn reminded a divorce lawyer of
another country Judge, who was holding
down a bench somewhere In the mountains
of eastern Tennessee. It was a shooting
case, and whan the evidenoe was aU In
and the argument over he charged the
Jury like this:
Well, gentlemen, if you believe what
the prosecuting lawyer has told you you'U
decide against the prisoner, and If. on the
other hand, you beHev what the lawyer
for the defense has told you you'll decide
tor the prisoner; but If you know both
lawyers as well as I do you won't know
which way to decide. Tou'U Just have to
do the best you can.' "
Btlll another country Judge was recalled,
this oqe a Kentuckian, who, when the
counsel in a case that had been tried be

the gossips on both si dee of the Atlantic.
As Mary Agnes O'Brien, daughter of a

She left, St Louis some ten or twelve
years ago. Not long after that she mar

whom ahe received a large fortune at his
death, shortly after the marriage. Her
money and her beauty combined to make
place for her In the exclusive society
ef New York.
Rumors floated back now and then to
the Patch, telling of the social conquests
of ths "little queen." Little heed was
paid to these, however. Word 'came,
finally, that she had married Senor Ruls,
an attache Of the Cuban legation at Wash

not until the summer of 1904, during the
Louisiana Purchase exposition, that the

said Dr. Shelp, "one of the most beautiful
brunettes that I have ever seen came to
me. She told me her name was Agnes
O'Brien and that she was poor, but wanted
some work done. She asked me to make
the fee nominal if I could, and do the
work for her. She had well nigh perfect
teeth, and I consented. The fee I charged
was small.

T WAS only a few days ago that we announced our purchase of the well known "F" horse ranch of t.100 acres In Perkins
county, Neb. The ranch fence encloses about 12 square miles. Not all the land Inside the fenoe belongs to the "F" ranch,
a part of It being held by non-resident owners. Before announolng our purchase of the ranch, we had purchased r so-
cured option on a great deal of this land, so that our total holdings embrace nearly 1.000 acres.
The main body of this land was purchssed at a very low price, and within three days after the announcement or purenesa
we had sold 1,180 acres to men In Kearney who are our regular clients. The price at which we sold to them (and at which we are
offering the land to all comers as long as It lasts) will enable the purchasers to sell again, if they so desire, at a price lower
than the price which owners place on land surrounding it and yet make a good profit on the Investment. This being a good
sized deal and a quick turn, we are satisfied with a small profit per acre, as we can sell much of the land a second time and
thus make two commissions.
If this proposition Interests you, see Us or write to us. The land described Is all level or gently rolling, and the sou 1
