Against Itceil A Ktrattou Lumber Case.
S. II. Shprnmn v. Frod M. Waite.
au action of trover to recover tho value
of certain lumber claimed to have been
converted bv defendant,; aud demand
ins damaecs of ?5,000. The evidence
of plaintiff tended to nbowj that Jan
15, 1893, lie took a bla iket mortgage
on the lumber and standing timber on
two Mb m .Marlboro Known us tba
"Kniirhts" and "Htockwoll" lota to
secure him for all monoy which he had
or micht thereafter loan to the defend
ant, for unv insurance account due
him and to securo him aguinst loes on
all notes which ho Mad then signed or
might thereafter sign for defendant;
that on Feb. 27d he took another
mortgago on all tho lumber sawed, or
to be sawed, delivered and piled on
the land of Lucy Doolittle in Rrattle
boro and cut on the "Luce'" lot in
Marlboro, to secure the payment, of a
nnto of 82121"), and sundry other notes
signed for Waite. The plaintifl"
claimed under these mortgages that
nine notes which he put in evidence
were secured and that tho ngregate
sum duo him upon thom was $8,083.80
und that the defendant was entitled
to credit for eight shares of valley
Fair stock and the caah value of two
Life iusuranco policies also turned over
to him ns collateral and for the valuo
of the land in Marlboro which plain-
till obtained by foreclosure of a reaj
estate mortgage given, him by the de
fendant; which sums amounted in tne
whoio to e'H'Jti, leaving a balanco due
on the mortiraae of i?G"87.80. The evi
dence of tho plaintiff showed the value
of the lumber covered by the mort
gages to be 814,821.25, and that tho
plaintiff had released his mortgage on
82,000 worth of oak, which was soltl to
tho Hoywood Uros Co., of Gardner
and $1100 worth of beech sold tjll. L.
Had lock of -Marlboro, leaving til.-,
424.25 worth of tho lumber which the
plaintiff claimed was covered by his
mortgage. The plaintiff claimed that j
all of it had been sod by defendant
who bad never paid over tho proceeds
to him. The evidence of the defendant
was, that at the time he gave the mort
gages, he was in straightened financial
circumstances and bad purchased the
lots of land in question for the purpose
of getting off lumber; that ho went to
the plaintiff for financial assistance nnd
for that purpose induced the plaintiff
to go up to Marlboro and look over the
land whon be gave the mortgage ;tnat it
was understood at the time that he
was to proceed to get the lumber off
the lota and sell it in tho market and
that the urocoeds of tho sales of lum
ber should be used in ' defraying the
expenses incident to carrying on the
business and the hp '11-70 applied to
discharge obligations when the
plaintiff had loaned him money or
signed with him as surety; that he
saw the plaintiff almost daily and ad
vised with him about the sales or lum
ber and full information as to what he
was doing with the lumber and the
proceeds and that all of tho lumber
was sold with the consent of the plain
tiff and with full knowledge; that the
lumber venture proved to be a losing
one and there was not enouuh money
to discharge, all the obligations. The
defendant also denied tho claimed
balance due on the mortgage and
claimed that two of the notes for 3125
and 225 respectively were collateral
notes which he gave the plaintiffs
for notes which lie had signed
tit the bank for him: which bank
notes the defendant claimed to have
paid, thus extinguishing the notes
held by tiie plaintiff; that another
note of 1210, was given the plaintiff
as collateral security for signing two
notes of $100 and ?Sl0;t!iat these notes
were paid and taken up by the de- j
fondant and the collateral notes
should have been surrendered. The
I laintilf denied consenting to the sale
of the mortgage properly. He also
claimed and his tcstimonv went to
show that none of tho notes were
collateral but were nil bonalide debts
formed for monev had and received,
Among other papers iu corroboration
was one check for fl.OOQ, payable to
Waite and endorsed by him, which
plaintiff asserted to be part of tho
loans and which Waite wouldn't say
that he had ever repaid. It was also
shown where about 63,000 of the pro
ceicls of mortgaged lumber went, in
three places to pay old no'.es, and,
debts which Sherman had nothing, to
do with. The jury rendered a verdict
for the pluintiff to recover the sum of
81131. V. C. Fitts and L. M. Kead
for plaintiff, Waterman.Martin Jc Hitt
and Haskins for defendant.
Janx 8 A. Reed vs. Alonzo Starkey,
an action of replevin to recover a
wagon plaintiff claimed title bv vir
tue of a purchase of the same at auc
tion sale, and his evidence tended to
show that in June 1894, he brought suit
against his sun J. 11. Keed and at
tached all of bis property, on a debt
which, the son owed for various obli
gations which his father hud signed
with him as surety: that after tho at
tachment had rested on the property
a little over tiro months, by agreement of
parties,the property.of the non, winch
I included the wagon in question was
Isold by the attaching officer on mense
I process and this wagon was bought by
i the father. The defendant justified as
'an officer serving legal process and
j and his evidence tended to show that
the wagon was sold by Henry R.
j Brown to J. D. Reed: that the sale
was a conditional one and title re
! mained in Browne tiutil the wagon was
' paid for : and that the plaintiff bad
' know Ipdge of the terms of sale: that
! after the auction sale the plaintiff per
( mittcd the waeon to remain in the
. pomt'ssiou and crnti,l of his sou,
' that June 11. 18!i4.Hrown brought suit!
'against the son of J. 1). lteed, and at-
: tacheil the wagon and June 24. judg- ,
ment was obtained, execution isiied I
.bugenico aud f ortuniati forini vs.
Lou ib Uufresne, an action of ussump
sit to recovor for services rendered in
chopping logs in 1893. Plaintiffs were
living iu Hnnnington aud claimed tho
tho defendant met one of thorn on the
tho street and offered him a job for
both of plaintiffs on a log job in Strat
ton mat no would pay llvo cents per
log and givo tits plaintiffs tho small
logs; that plaintiffs wore unwilling to
take either of tha sub contractors,
John Hernrd or John Konieri, as pay
masters but offerod to go.if the defend
ant would guarantee the pay; that it
was then arranged that Dufretme
should see tho contractors and if such
arrangement could be made ; that at the
house of the defendant in Manchester
the terms of the agreement were again
repeated when both plaintiffs, defend.
nnt and the contractors were present ;
that plaintitrs wor.:ed on the job from
May 17 to Oct. 5 and with Romeri cut
8759 logs and 595 small logs at the
price of five cents for the large ones
and 2t cents for tho small oucs, and
that upon settlement there was a bal
anco of $103., which tho defendant had
never paid them. Tho defendant de
nied the terms of tho contract and
claimed that he saw the plaintiffs in
relation to tho work for Uerard : that
lierard was the man with whom they
made their coutract,and he, the defend
ant, paid Berard in full and never in
any way guaranteed the payment of
plaintiffs bill or employed them. Tho

the defendant toVinal Koith and Rich
mond was the executor of Keith's
estate. During the last sickness of
Keith and while it was claimed ho
was incompetent to do business he
gave tip a note to defendant's husband
and it was destroyed. After bis death

wan brought to recovor the valuo of
the note. The court co forma directed

This week will close the jury triali)
iu the civil cases. Next week the
criminal cases will bo taKen up and
there will probably betimeenoug,
nearly if not quite, to dispose of the
court business also.
The case of Hidden v. Hooker,
claiming e1500 in the settlement, of
partnership between them, was con
tinued on affidavit of plaintiff's sick
ness. This jame case, or ono involv
ing tho same subject matter, was set
"no jury" by tho plaintiff at the last
September term and on hearing of
affidavits the court then adjudged no
cause for continuance and ordered
judgment for defendant. The plaintiff
then brought this suit.

Bradley C. Newell, tho healer, is
still going on his way conquering and
to conquer. Last week Thursday he
visited Dartmouth college in company
with his manager. Prof. L. A. Butter
field, formerly of tho chair of elocution
there, and Friday and Saturday he
was at West Randolph where he treated
cases by tho hundred from towns all
about thero. lie went home to Jack
sonville to spend Sunday and Monday
he went to Hartfi rd to trout Editor
B. L. Burr of the Hartford Times, who
was in bed for a nervous trouble and
who reported himself much benefitted
by Newell's "'aying on of hands" and
was able to sit up before tho healer
left. His daughter, who has been
troubled with deafness, was also treat
ed by Mr. Newell and 6he said that
her hearing was improved. Tuesday
and Wednesday Newell was at Gard
ner. Mass., and yesterday and to day
at r itchburg.
The most remarkable case Newell has
had vet was that of Mabel the 10 years
old child of Harrison Dewey of South
Kovalton. who has never snoken
word since she was 15 mcnths old,
when she had the measles and tonsi
it ie at tho same time causing paraly
sis ef tho throat. After holdiug the
little girl's hands for a few minutes
and placing her hands upon her throat,
sho jumped as if it hurt ner throat,
After a minute or two tho girl s.iid
the faint word sho had spoken in over
nine years. Then when told what to
say sho told her name, and where from
and seemed to bo greatly excited over
it. Tho mother could hardly contain
herself she was so pleased. Then the
mother and daughter went to dinner
and the littlo mis.-i gave off her order
as plainly as could be.
J. T. Slack, of Springfield, who lost
bis hearing in ono ear when a noy,
after a few minutes he came out and
could hear as well in the ear that was
affected as ho could in tho other.
Mr. Newell said ho had ono case.
there which was the most peculiar he
had over had. Lewis Bates of Bethel
came into tho room and said ho was
deaf and had n leg drawn up by tho
cords, so that ho could not use it very
well. After giving bun a regular
treatment. Mr. Bates asked tho people
present to retire which they did and
after taking off bis pants had .Mr.
Newell rub tho affected leg. When he
was doing it. Mr. Newell asked him
if he could feel his hands, but he
could nnt hear but almost in a minute
ho said that it felt as if in the other
leg thero was a ball of Bre rolling up
and down and asked Mr. Newell if he
could not hear it crack, whilo he
could Dot understand a word that was
spoKon to him. The current of elec
tricity which seems to pass through
the body would mako crackling sound.
Newell stated to a reporter that he
had been most successful with sciatic
rheumatism and heart trouble while
he had treated over 1000 oases for
deafness he said he had riot cured or
helped over 50 at the most.
He sai! that ho does not know that
