The stairs leading to Magistrate Wi
:11'8 office fairly creaked beneath the
weight of the heavy case from Milan that
came up before his honor for adjustment
yesterday afternoon. Full? 80 persons
from the city by the Hennepin jammed
and crowded the office hallway and stairs
ia their eagerness to hear the case that
has been the chief topic in the village
for several days.
The case was brought by Miss Mabel
Lagrange, who about a year ago created
a furore ia town by eloping with a
man many ears her senior and stay

Turning to htr home. The charge was as

Miss Anr.a Crr a rather pretty miss of 14
years. Both firls wore employed in the
canning factory and the trouble began
over tLe defendant slapping a little sister
of the complainant. Miss Lagrange who
is much larger than the defendant took
her to task for this unkindly act and a
regular all-over-the-lot fight occurred ia
which hair-pulling and slapping were the
main features. Mrs. E. J. Lagrange,
the mother also joined in the fun. and
between the two. Miss Carr got decidedly
the worst cf it. She swore out war
rants at Milan against Mrs. and
Miss Lagrange, and Justice Brown fined
both. Then the Lagranges retaliated in
the courts here which was the case yes-,

The trial was before a jury composed
of J. 11. Cieland, J. V. Baiiey, J. J. 8ul

anil H- C. Schafer. The hearing of the
evidence brought out some tragic scenes
in which Miss Lagrange took the leading
roll, it being stown that the latter had
gone out into the street to attack the de
fendant and from her own evidence she
wished it undtrstood that the was physi
ctlly able to take rare of herself. Tie
jury was only out a few minutes when it
retarned a verdict of col guilty and Mies

Nicholas Strice, a one-legged man of
Davenport, was held up on Perry street
in that city last night by George Masury
nd robbed of $4 400. only $ SO of which
was in cash, the balaLce being certificates

ting the robbery Masury jumped into a
h.ck and came t o this city. About two
hours later he returned toDavenjort and
was picked up by the police. When
take to the station it was found that he
had in the meantime disposed of the cer
tificates of deposit, and as ' he
had a brother ekipping bells at
one of the hotels here, tne latter
was taken to' Davenport on suspicion of
having some knowledge of where the
missing certificates were, but he was af
