Judge Waterman said that he did not wish to keep the jury so- ciuaea ana puman any who were voting according to their belief. Now that the jurymen were dis charged, he had one word to sy. That the courts were often criticised fer not giving justice. The judge said he neither knew nor wanted to know how the jury voted, but the county attorney had a duty to per form and he performed it; the court had such a dnty also, and had per formed it. The petit jury alone had not performed its duty. If it had been one man ha could not have disa greed. The notion of the petit jary would simply coat the taxpayers of tne county tnouaanas of dollars The last exhortation of the judge was for the jury not to go and oriticise the court, if it had not done what it should have.

William Bucks, who was evidently the leader of the othr portion of the jury, then addressed the court, say mg tne jury was as lax from ai agreement as it had been Saturday, The court asked again it it was i dissgreement on faots. and the speak. er replied that it was.

Mrs. Clela Laflin, wife of Frank 8. Laflin, former proprietor of the Hotel Gordon, ol this city, created a sensation at Sears yesterday by call ing at the school, which her 11-year-old son, Boyd, who haa been living witn bis istaer since ueir separa tion, attended, and spiriting him away. Mr. and Mrs. LAflin have not been living together since July 1, 1896. Mr. Laflin alleges that his wife de serted him. For the past year Mr. Laflin and bis son, Boyd, have been making their home with Mr. Laflin 's parents at Sears, the boy being in the custody of his father. Mrs. Laflin has been living at in tervals with her mother, Mrs. Lydia Hopes, in Andalusia township. She came to the school house yesterday and called Boyd out, ostensibly to talk with him. The boy did not re turn. Whea Mr. Laflin learned of the affair he hastened to Bock Island and instructed his attorney, Adair rieasants, to at once begin habeas corpus proceedings for the recovery of the child. Mr. Laflin stated in his petition that he believed the boy was at the home of Mrs. Bopes, Mrs. Laflin's mother, being detained there against his will, and he feared that unless immediate action was taken the boy would be taken to a plaee outside the court's jurisdiction. Judge Gest gran tea a writ last evening, it was placed in the handa ot BaiUtt G. W. Sample, who drove to Edgington last night, and found Boyd in the com pany of hia mother at the home of Mrs. Bopes. The boy was brought DaoK to ttocK island ana turned over to his father. Mrs. Laflin told the officer that she had come home for a short visit, and wanted her son with her during her stay.
