An Important Case at the Pres

or the Indian t Kailro.d C'onHtruc-tlon-Uroond
Probably the most important cases
docketed for he iring at the present
term of the circuit court are the
seven entered against K. P. Rey
nolds & Co. Tae plaintiffs are the
Chicago National bank, the Union
National bank the Globe National
bank. R. U. Coleman, C. H. Smith,
E. M. Dickey and Henry M. Kin &
Co., all of Chic igo, ami the ground
of the ltigatio:i is to recover from
$S5.000 to $100 OtiO money borrowed
by the firm of K. P. Reynolds & Co.
to complete its railroad construction
in Indiana, w h eh proved so disas
trous to the firm. The real purpose
of the suits to be tried in Rock
is to identify l orter Skinner, of this
city, with the irm of K. P. Reynolds
& Co., and thus hold him responsi
ble for obligat ons contracted by the
firm. The s.iir promises to be an in
teresting one in commercial law, and
will introduce some of the most bril
liant iejjal ta cut in the country.
The plaintiff are represented bv

M. F.. church, in Moline, on Tuesday
night was vcll attended. Shortly
before the (lose, however, a, fracas
occurred wl ich upset the enjoyment
of the occasion and created consid
erable excitement. It appears that
for some time bad blood has existed
between Mr- Alice Maxcy and Miss
Mary Jenki is on account of the too
marked and constant attention which
Alice's gay hubbie. Will, has been
paying to Mary, and it is said that
the former lady had threatened to
punish the latter if she caught her
in her husband's society again. That
condition being fulfilled that night at
the receptfi n. Mrs. Maxey proceeded
to carrv mi the program previously
announced :md there was a lively
scrimmage. Maxey w ho was an in
terested (spectator, seeing his mother-in-law
e ming up to see what was
the matter, let 11 v his ready list and
hit the old lady in the eye. The
three active principals were arrested
on complaint of one of the ollicial
members o the church, w ho i de
termined to put a stop to such pro-1
ceedings in the church. i

John Murphy, a farmer, came into
town yesterday w'?h a load of hay,
but before he made a sale he got so
drunk he didn't know w ind her he was
selling beer or hay. Officer Brennan
saw him and took him to the station,
fearing that he might make a para
chute leap from the load of hav. At
the stati n Sweet Morpheus took
him in charge, ami this mornin"- it
was almost impossible for him to tell
the difference in weight between his

For five long months Jack Kennedy
abstained from the use of bug juice,
and happ;iess reigned supreme in
his neighborhood, but about a week

his good traits and he proceeded to
drink all I be beer in town with the
result as usual a 'runk. But if
Jack would only be a peaceable
drunk it might be all right, but
he is not. When drunk, he
goes home and heaps abuse upon his
mother. This was the ease yester
day, as stated last night, and Jack
was arrested by Officer Etzel at his

his machine and was bruised and
scalded. His injuries are not fatal,
and not actually serious, but thev
are bail enough to 'retire him from
the business for some time. The su

upon the matter. I he Iowa statute
provides certain regulations for the
handling of such machines on all

Who Can Figure It?
This confusing postage stamp con.
undrum is at present making the
rounds of the newspaper world: "A
young lady entered a postoflice.
handed in a dollar bill and said that
she wanted twice as many twos as
ones and the balance iu threes. The
clerk started in an off-hand way to
count out the stamps, grew per
plexed, commenced figuring, and fig
ured until he got red in the face,
when the young lady politely in
formed him that she was iu a hurry,
that he could figure it out and she
would call the next day for the
stamps. Now, who can figure out
the probleiu how many stamps were
given the young lady by the clerk
when she called the next dav?''
