celebrution, but they will have a variety
of entertainments which will keep people
at home and attract strangers. The
principal place of resort in the evening

of refreshments, fireworks display and
other tntertainment for the visitors have
been arranged for.

Judge Glenn delivered a long decision

for the reason that the indictment read
circuit clerk, when it should have read
clerk of the circuit court. This is a
technical point which the defendant's

there was no error in the law of the case.
The only question to be decided was the
damages. If, he said, McDarrah was
permanently injured, $2,800 was not too
much; but it was impossible to say how
severe his injury was since the time
elapsed between the accident and the
suit was so short. By granting a new
trial no harm could come to the plaintiff,
and by the next term of court the per
