is run 'under the direction of the
courts. A few days ago a notice was
served on Mr. Trucsdale by a notary
to build a certain fence, which notice
under the laws of the state invokes
the support of the courts and becomes
mandatory. Mr. Trucsdale neglect

Mr. Truesdale arrested and jailed for
contempt of court. He was prompt
