They were indicted by the federal grand jury for matter contained in the magazine and several newsdeal ers over the United States got into trouble for selling the pub lication The first trial resulted in a disagreement. In the sec ond, before Judge Willard of Minnesota, the jury convicted but recommended the defend ants to the mercy of the court. Judge Willard imposed a penit entiary sentence instead of a fine as had been anticipated. There will he a third trial here Jan. 14. The chief contentions of the defendants against the second trial in which they were convicted are that an attorney was admitted as a juror and that he was a personal enemy of the defendants, and that Judge Wil lard admitted only experts in the evidence and not full sent ences and paragraphs and the contest to show the intent of objectionable phrase.

Saturday, Jan. 10. 87 Children In Just One Family Fargo Forum: This paper a few days ago told of a woman, who had 21 children. Now conn s a report of a family of 87 child - ren—87, count 'em. 87!—in Bri esen, Westpreussen, Germany. The father of this modest little family married twice. In the first marriage the home was blessed by the arrival four sets of four children each, seven sets of triplets, and six teen pairs of twins. When the mother of the 69 children died, the father married again, and to this second union was born two sets of triplets, and six pair of twins, making 18 to add to the 69, 01 - a total of 87 children. Eighty-four of these children are said to be living and in good health. Whether the father supported the entire family unassisted is not stated. Whether his neigh bors ev?r had the courage to in vite him and his wife over to dinner, and "bring the children along'', is left to the readers im agination. Presumably, when he bought clothes for the child ren, or shoes he advertised <>n for bids on the contract. Anyway, it is said that the staid Colonel Roosevelt, when he heard of the rabbit-like pro pensities of this family, turned a double- 5 bp Uop right Reim e the president of the Argentine Republic, with whom he was visiting, greatly starting that dignitarv.
