Bill Elliott's blind steer ha gone to
that bourne from whence good blind
teer was never known to re
turn. It happened in thl way: Bill
bought the steer from a farmer
living In the upper part of this county.
On last Wednesday Bill went after the
steer, and it was late, between 9 and 10
o'clock, when he reached the city on his
return. The ground was frozen, nd
hard to walk over, so Bill concluded to
take the sidewalk for It, believing that
he could make the steer keep the road by
the usual "gee-wo-haw-Buck" whoop.
The steer went along well enough for a
hundred yards or ; so. and until he
reached a point a short distance above
Col. Taylor's residence, when he got too
near the side of the road, and before Bill
could get to him, fell over the embank
ment, and in the fall succeeded In putting
an end to his misery by breaking his
neck. Bill dou't want to buy any more
blind steers. His experience with this
one has convinced him that "blind steers
are mighty uncertain."
( irrult Court.
In the circuit court yesterday the case
of Laura A. Henricks vs. the trustees of
school district No. 5, township 15, south
range one west ot the third principal
meridian, Pulaski county, was ou trial
It seems that there was two school in
the district, one tor white children,
and another lor colored children
Mi.s Henricks was engaged to teach the
white school. From the evidence aduced
on the trial it seems that about two
months after the opening of the schools,
the colored school was broken up, and
the parents of the colored children
claimed tw rinht to send them to the
same school with the wiiUa cUUJrcn
taught by Miss Henricks. To this
the trustees objected, and rather than
submit to the colored children attending
the school, dismissed the teacherand lock
ed the school house up. Miss Henricks'
engagement was for five months, and she
claims that the school was broken up by
the trustees, and not by any fault of
hers; hence she brought suit against them
for pay for the full term tor which she was
employed to teach. Hon. John M.
Lansden and Geo. W. Henricks appeared
for plantiff, and Judge Mulkey tor the
trustees. The trial occupied the atten
tion of the court throughout the day,
and was given to the jury at a late hour
in the evening. The verdict will prob
ably be announced this morning.

Several day ago a well-dressed and
modest appearing ;young woman named
Sarah May called at Judge Bros' office,
and applied for a warrant for the arrest
of a young man named Henry Riddle,
whom she charged was the father of an
illegitimate child which she held in ber
arms. The warrant was placed in
Constable John Cain's bands
for service. A day or two ago Cain suc
ceeded in capturing Riddle, and took
him before Judge Bross, when the case
was set for heariag yesterday. At the
appointed hour yesterday morning
all the parties were in court. Miss May
was accompanied by her father, a rather
fine looking gentleman of perhaps fifty
year. The child, a bright and pretty
little boy one year old, w4
with its mother. Riddle, who Is hcrhaps
twenty-five years of age, and a son of the
late Dr. Riddle of Pulaski county, was
accompanied by his mother and several
young gentlemen friend. Lawyer An
derson of Mound City, appeared for Rid
dle, and D. T. Llnegar of this city, for
Miss May. The cas3 was called at ten
o'clock, when Mr. Anderson applied for
a change of venue to some other justice
of the peace. The change was granted,
and the case sent to Justice of the Peace
Dick Fitzgerald. Squire Fitzgerald be
ing in the court house, Judge Bross va
cated the bench and Mr. Fitzgerald took
his place. Miss May was the first wit
ness sworn. She testified that she lived
with her father near Caledonia, Pulaski
county. Her age is twenty-one year. She
became acquainted with Riddle in March
1S75. She met him at a party at her
father's house. Her first criminal inti
macy with him was shortly after their first
meeting, and her child was born at the
house ot a friend in Cairo on the 14th of
January, 1876. She was never crimi
nally intimate with any other person.
She brought this action against Riddle to
compel him to support the child. This
was the sum and substance ot her testi
mony, and the prosecution stated that
they did not desire to introduce any
further evidence. Riddle, the defendant,
was sworn. He did not deny the pa
ternity of the child. In fact Riddle
didn't deny much of anything, ami was
allowed to leave the witness stand with
out cross-examination. Mr. Riddle and
a youug man named Eckols, were alno
sworn, but their testimony was unimpor
tant. They knew nothing that had any
earing on the case, aud they were not
cross-examined. Mr. Andersou made a
lengthy speech in which he endeavored
to convince the court that Miss Msy'a
testimony was not to be relied upon. Mr.
LIngar submitted the decision of tli
case to the court without argument. The
result was that Riddle was required to
give bond in the sum of six hundred dol
lars for his appearance at the next term
of the county court to answer the charge
