In the case of the State vs Walter Wy-
land, tor the larceny of a mare, in which
the jury failed to agree in a trial had two
years ago, the defendant was granted per
mission to withdraw the plea of not
guilty and to tile a demurrer to the in
dictment. The indictment set out that
the mare stolen was the personal property
'of some person or persons unknown to
the grand jury." It was maintained that
under the statute no crime could be
shown to have been committed unless it
could be proved that the article stolen
was "then and there the property of an
other." The district attorney admitted
that the ownership of the animal could
not be established in this case, and he
asked fora dismissal, which was granted.
In the foreclosure suit of Robert J
Beutel vs P S Bates et al, that went
through court here last year, it was found
that the property, which adjoins the city,
would not bring enough to satisfy the
claim, and when it was sought, to collect
on a deficiency judgment, it was discov
ered that there had not been proper set v
ce of notice of the foreclosure suit. Mrs.
Bates, to whom the plaintiff looks for
the deficiency, had not been served at alt.
So it was necessary to beain all over
again, and today the former decree and
Fay for sodomy; and two indictments
against Charles Lewor, one for assault
with a dangerous weapon and the other
for carrying concealed weapons.

"The First Thanksgiving Dinner,"
''Lilian Bell's First Days in London"
and "When Dr. Whitman Added Three
Stars to Our Flag" are among the leading
features of the November Ladies' Home
Journal. The first tells ot the most his
torically important dinner in America,
at which Indian chiefs were guests, and
at which oysters were first eaten by white
men. Miss Bell finds much in London to
inspire her pen to its smartest activity,
and the dtscriptions of her Bight-seeing
tours, her impressions and experiences
fairly sparkle with wit. Dr. Whitman's
service to the United States in saving
Oregon, Washington and Idaho from the
British are acknowledged in an article
which follows the first women acoss the
continent, and the first whites over the
Rocky Mountains. Magician Keller
writes on "How I Do My Tricks," show
ing how simple is their solution when it
The second article on ''Inside of a Hun'
dred Homes" is more attractive and rich
iu suggestions on furnishing and flitting
up home than was the excellent inau
gural oneof the series. It present fifteen
views. Edward W. Bok advises young
married people against living in a hotel
or boarding house, points out the beau
ties of tne courtesies of life, and expres
ses hearty, approval of the renewed in
terest in sewing woman's truest accom
plishment. Alice Wellington Rollins in
troduces a new and charming character
in fiction in the first of her Philppa
sketches "The Mistakes of Philippa"
and Clara E. Laughlin contributes "Rev
elation of Christopher," a story of strong
human interest. Pianists will be de
lighted with the musical feature, "Poet's
Dream Waltzes" by Reginald de Koven,
author of "Robin Hood," etc., and
people who are home-seeking, with the
Journal's special arcMtest's plans for a
$2200 house for a small square lot. Mrs.
Rorer tells how tocook eggs and to handle
family wash, and other articles give hints
for church sociables and parties. Sug
gestions for Christmas presents that can
be made by the giver are timely, as
are articles upon dress, needlework, and
the various departments covering nearly
every phase of home life and of woman's
work. The November Journal is inter,
