Wants Milk Cows Inspected
A Monroe citizen believes the city
should pass an ordinance requiring all

a very large per cent of milk cows

that out of that number he found
twenty-three infected with the tuber
cular germ.

Recorder's Court's Mill Grinds Out
Serersl Cases
B. " Gordon was tried before the
recorder yesterday on a charge of
embezzlement and fraud. Ho was ac-
auitted on the embezzlement charge
and was bound over lo isupenor court
under a $250 bond on the charge of
fraud. It will be remembered that
the charge was preferred against Gor
don by Pete Tastsis, who claims that

business under the pretense that it
was free from mortgage, but that it
was later learned that it was cov
ered with mortgages. Mr. W, M.
Purser of New Salem township went
on Gordon's bond.
Fred Pruett and Robt. Means were
also before Recorder Lemmond yes
terday for engaging in a "scrap.
Pruett, it seems, sssaulted Means and
the latter secured a niece of stove
wood which he used in his defense.
Means was declared not guilty while
Pruett was fined $50 and costs.
Willie Smith, colored, was given
120 days on tht rosds for stealing
and carrying a pistol. It appeared
that Smith was a wonderer on the
face of the earth and that Bert Wil
liams, another negro, took pity on
him and was allowing Smith to live
with him until he could secure work
and find a home and as appreciation
of what Williams was doing for him.
Smith stole his pistol and loft Wil
liams alone without protection.
Esic Rone was charged with aban
donment and non-support but his trial
was continued until another day.
