.Mrs. Arnold' $5,000 Damage Suit
Occupies the Untlrc Day.
There wns but little done in the
district court yesterday outside of
the case in which Mary C. Ar
nold sues I. K. Harmon et al for
$."i,000 damages. The parties to
this Biiit lived near Klk, and it
seemed that Harmon had rented
some land from Arnold. There
arose a difference between them in
reference, to the land, and while
pistol and gun ploys were going
on, Mrs. Arnold claims that she
became so excited that it caused
her prot-tration for several weeks,
and for other damages she sued
Harmon for $5,000.
The plaintiff was represented by
Cruce, Cruce & Cruce, while the
defendant had employed Herbert
& Cannon and Furninn & Mather?.
Strong speeches were made on
both sides and the jury went to
the box about 0 o'clock-
The jury, after being out for a
short time, returnoJ and informed
the court that they had been una
ble thus far to agree- They were
allowed to go home, but to recon
