drug store, and representing himself an
agent cf a wholesale patent medicine
house, wished to sell somo goods. The
druggist wanted tho medicine, nnd, of

one else, nnd gave him an ordor amount
ing to $21.40. Tho firm for which tho
agent was doing business, however, had
adopted a new system of dealing with
their custcmers, aTid it would bo necessary
for tho druggist to give him a note, paya
blo in thirty days, for tho amount. Of
course the druggist would willingly do
that. Tho note was made out """and

druggiit good dv and left tho store." It
was not long, however, until word reached
tho cars of the dealer iu drugs that his note
for $21.40 had been offered Jo Mr. John
McNulty at a big discount. Ho "smelt a

Urutal Husband. In tho county
court yesterday there was tried a caso
that, for a down right outrago upon nn in
nocent and injured woman, has not n par
allel in tho record of Alexander county
Ono E. G. Hoppe, a German miller, tiled
with tho court an affidavit thut his wife.
Mrs. Minnie Hoppe, a sprightly and
rather good-looking womnn of about twenty-one
years of age, was insaue, nnd dan
gerous to the community in which she re
sides. At 2 o'clock, tho hour ft
for hearing the case, tho parties were all
in court. Tho testimony of tho several
witnesses went to prove beyond a doubt
that if there was anything like insanity
the matter with the woman, it was caused
by. ill-treatment received Ht tbo hands of
her husband. It was proven thut he
would conic homo to his meals, and if
matters about tho houso. were not just as
ho thought they ought to be, he would
become excitod and mnko their home a
perfect bedlam. "On ono occasion, when
his wife was sick, he came home, and seeing
some delicacies sotting on the table, ho
asked where they 'came from. His
wife told him that her mother
had sent them to her, when ho in
continently gobbled them up and threw
them out of the house. We were alo in
fomed on good authority thut he was in
the habit of whipping, and in vurioits
ways maltreating tho poor woman. It
seems Hopp"o was once.befur" tmirricd, and
ihat ho would go to his presc.it wife and
tell her that thc'.wore not legally mar
ried, and that ho could kick her out at
any time, and that nothing could bo done
with him fur It. .
At tho close of tho testimony tho jury
retired, and after an absence of about ten
minutes returned tho following verdict :
n tho mutter of Mrs. Minnie Hoppe, ul-
leged to bo insane, bute or Illinois,
Afexuiider county, ss.t
We, the undersigned, jurors in the caso
' Mrs. Minnie Hoppe, allegod to bo In
ane. Iiuvinu licsni tiiu evidence in ine
case, aro satisfied that said Mrs. Minim
Homio is not insane, and that Her present
stuto of excitement is caused entirely from
the bail treatment nt nor husband.

Tbo testimony from first to last, whs
nlciilated to create tho impression in tho
minds, of those who heard il, that Hoppo's
dosiro was to get rid of his family. .
Mrs. lloppo was discharged and left tho
court. Hoppe, utter tlio trial, sat down ut
a tablo in tho court room, and in talking
about tho niatter, became excited and be
gan to pound tho tablo with his clenched

the two ho was thn most crazy.
