Wibaux Pioneer VOLUME 5 WIBAUX, DAWSON COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY. OCTOBER 13, 1911 NUMBER 40 Allison Davis "Not Guilty" Sued For Seven Thousand Dollars Damages—Jury Returns Verdict After Being Out But 20 Minutes The case of Maier vs. Davis came to trial last Monday a. m. before the District Court at Glen dive. The whole eontroversey grew out of an accident which occurred to Mrs. Maier over a year ago, her horse becoming frightened at Mr. Davis' automobile on the road north of town near the Carlson place. Mrs. Maier, so the evidence showed, was thrown from her bug gy and slightly cut and bruised about the head. As a result of her injuries she brought suit against Mr. Davis for $7,000.00 damages, which she alleged to have sustained. Mr. Davis' witnesses testified that he was driving his machine at a moderate rate of speed, did not attempt to race Mrs. Maier, and that he used ordinarily prudent care in passing, that a person would use under similar circum stances. One of his witnesses al so testified to the fact that the horse Mrs. Maier was driving was a fractious, leather-mouthed ani mal and unfit for a woman to hand le. The case occupied the better part of two days, and went to the jury about 4 o'clock Tuesday after noon. They were out twenty minutes and returned with a ver dict in favor of Mr. Davis. The same case was tried at the last term of the District Court, but a disagreement of the jury, necessitated a re-trial this term. Mrs. Maier was represented by Anderson and Leahy, while Mr. Davis was represented by C. C. Harley of Glendive, and Donald Campbell of the firm of Loud and Campbell, of Miles City.

Many Wibaux people have stomach or bowel trouble which is likely to turn into appendicitis. If you have constipation, sour stomach, or gas on the stomach, try simple buckthorn bark, glycer ine, etc., as compounded in Adler i-ka, the new German appendici tis remedy. C. M. Allen, Drug gist, states that A SINGLE DOSE of this simple remedy relieves jowel or stomach trouble almost INSTANTLY. The latest invention to hang in the family dining room is the gum board. It is a neat little circular board, plain, or decora ted, fastened to the wall. The name of each of the family is painted on the circumference, and marks the spot where the gum is left until wanted. This saves carrying the gum to bed and getting it in one's hair or swalling it in the night. It is obvious that the gum board sup plies a long felt want, and he who invented the new fad will have the best wishes of the young ladies.

An exchange advocates a plan whereby young ladies attending church in the evening can regis ter their names in the church vestibule, so that the young men who are in the habit of lingering around the church door can see whether or not their best girl is present and thus set a troubled brain at rest. The plan would undoubtedly be a great conveni ence for a certain class of young men and would work well in many places. Special Prices at the WIBAUX PROVISION COMPANY'S Saturday cash sale.

Verhasselt Will Soon be Free Last 8aturday the case of Ber nard Verhasselt, accused of a jail delivery, came up for trial in Glen dive, but before a jury was drawn Attorney Richard A. Baxter, who was defending him, succeeded in lessing the degree of the crime, ind secured a 60 day jail sentence for him instead, Verhasselt, it will be remember ed, was tried last spring for a burglary alleged to have been com mitted on the 8tipek harness shop but he was cleared on the State's testimony and found not guilty. Attorney Baxter representing him in this instance also. We are inclined to think that Verhasselt has already had his just dues for the jail delivery, for the reason that he was held in jail at Glendive in the first place on a charge for which he was tried and found not guilty. A correspondent wants to know when to use "shall" and "should." Never use "shall" when you should use "should" and never use "should" when you should use "shall." In short we should always say "should" whenever we should and never say "shall" when we should say "should." Is that I plain enough?
