Those who have read the decision of the supreme court in the Barclay-Musgrave notice that the court aoes not question Bar clay's election nor his right to act. It does not question his right to with draw the so-called stipulation. The only question decided is that Barclay did not show sufficient cause for such withdrawal. We accept the result of Barclav's one failure but we propose to keep right on telling the truth about the matter because it pays in the long run although we have no de sire to bore our readers or mar kind Christmas cheer and good fellowship.

OVERCOATS-A large line to se lect from. - v GEO. Mr. pig showed signs of fight, so the doctor picked up a rock and threw it at him. The pig came for him and he slipped and fell flat on his back. In an instant Mr. pig was on top .of him, his nose in close proximity with the doctor's, the pig striking to and. fro with his mouth wide open, his tusks - tearing the doctor's overcoat and glove. The doctor was equal to the emergency and grabbed Mr. pig by the lower jaw holding to him with the grip of a tiger. He called to young fteddig, who was at work close by, ana, with the aid of a pitchfork, the enraged animal was driven, away. Mr. pig was afterward conquered and is now minus of all his tusks. The doctor's fore finger on his right hand was terribly lacerated aud his right arm bruised and swollen. We understand that Mr. Olson will endeavor to nave the appellate court reverse itself by granting a re-bearing of bis suit against-Trego county for alleged printing done in 1897. His hope is based upon the claim that he furnished labor and material for which be has never been paid. Upon the same grounds World should be paid for the county printing of 1898.
