PECULIAR CASE UP
IN DISTRICT COURT
One of the most peculiar cases that
has been heard before the district
court in some time was heard before
Judge Law Thursday and was continu
ed over until May 5, when the argu
ments will be heard. The case in
question is the suit of the Peck-Hills
Furniture company of Minneapolis
against the Farmers' State bank of
The furniture company is suing the
bank for payment of $1,496 with in
terest since May, 1917, the amount
being the sum due them on a $2,000
bill of furniture sold in April 1917 to
F. Landis, proprietor of the Wilsall
hotel at that time. When Landis pur
chased the furniture he made a pay
ment of $500. Mr- E. T. Gruell, who
was president of the bank at that
time wrote the Peck-Hills company
stating that the bank was behind
Landis and would see that the furni
ture company received its money, and
on the strength of this letter the fuxi
ture was shipped. On May 29 Landis
died and the hotel property became
pai't of his estate, which was found
to be insolvent. The next year Gruell
sold his interests in the bank and re
moved to Portland, Oregon.
At the hearing yesterday Sam
Working, one of the bank directors,
took the stand and stated that Mr.
Gruell never brought the Landis mat
ter before the directors and that the
bank never received any benefit from
the transaction; that Gruell had no
authority to commit the bank. On
the other hand the conmpany claims
that the letter they hold from the
president of the bank is equivalent to
elgal assurance that they will get
their money. Walter Hartman is ap
pearing for the plaintiffs and Miller
and O'Connor of Livingston for the
Frank J. Robertson,
Lew Green and J. K. Liquin, directors
of the bank were also present at the
hearing but did not take the stand.

ALL RUGS REDUCED
In Price At D. D. Smith's
The manufacturers of RUGS and CARPETS have just announced
reduced prices of about 25 per cent from the reduced prices quoted last
December and we have immediately reduced our retail prices to correspond.
We believe the lowest prices on rugs have been reached for many months
to come, for it is generally known that if the new tariff bill, which places a
tax on carpet wools, is passed (as many manufacturers believe it will be),
the cost of rugs and carpenis will be increased. ..Therefore we recommend
. that you buy now while prices are at the bottom and while our selection
is at its best.
Below we list new reduced prices on dependable qualities.
