When She Would Marry.
This is what a young lady ia reported
to have eaid, apropos of marriage:
"Well, no, I don't know if I would marry
for money alone; but if a man had plenty
of money, allied lo a sweet disposition,
nd a unQelaclie that curled at both
ends, and nice blue eyes, and a social po
sition ; if ho had s distinguished status
in a profession, or even as a merchant,
and bis father was rich, and bis mother
and sisters aristocratic, and he wanted to
marry me, and he would promise to let
me have my own way in every thing,
and keep me liberally supplied with
money, if ho was liberal about diamonds
and other gems, and also about the mili
ner, never grumbling, and I really and
truly loved him, I shouldn't consider
marriage a drawback. I might take him
or better, but not for worse."

The Pennoyer-WIIIis Case.
This case has occupied tho nttouliou of
tho courts for tho last five yoars. It was
put on trial last Monday before Judgo
Hanna of Jackson county, having been
remanded by tho 6upretuo court to bo re
tried ujkhi its merits. After taking testi
mony and being ably aigucd by tho at
torneys, tho caso went lo tho jury Tues
day afternoon. Thero was bucIi an un
animity of opinion with tho jurymen
that uopn tho first ballot tho vordict was
for the defendant, W. R. Willis.
Tho main facts in this caso nro about
One Roberts npplied in 1870 for u loan
of two thousand dollars of tho school
fund. Mr. Willis who was appointed lo
cal attorney for tho stato school board,
was requested to examine tho titlo of lands
which Roberts proposed to glvo in se
curity for tho loan. Willis did so and
certified that thero was no Incumbrance
on tho land excopt a mortgago for $000,
and that tho land was good for tho se
curity of tho loan, and, as alleged by tho
state school board, upon that cerliflcato
tho loan was inado. Tho testimony
oflered in evidenco showed that tho loan
was made three months after Mr. Willis
certified to the efficiency of the security,
and after ho had. iufurnied tho county
treasurer who held tho money, not to pay
ine money lo Roberts until a mortgago
on the land offered In security for $2800
to S. Marks & Co. had been caucollcd
Mr W. X. Moore, tho county treasurer at
that timo, corroborated .Mr. Willis' testi
money to the effect that Mr. Willis had
verbally notified hint of tho existanco of
an uncancelled mortgngn upon tho prop
erty; bnt that upon Wm Friedlunder,
one of tho firm of S. Marks & Co.. tollinir
him that the said inoitgage had been
cancelled, he accepted the profercd
mortgage upon tho alrcadv over bur
dened mortgaged land and paid to the
said Roberts tho $1000. It appears tho
mortgage had not been cancelled and the
said mortgago to the school board be
came worthless, and action was institu
ted to recover from Willis.
The points of law involved wero in
part the liability of an attorney as
against that of tho agent uho executed
the contract. Mr. Moore wa3 the agent
of tho state board wbilo Willis uaathe
attorney who examined the titlo and
certified as to its liability, but subse
quently and before tho loan was com
pleted, informed the cnstotliau of tho
money that there was an uncancelled
mortgage upon the laud and not to com
plete the 'can until the mortgage was

Was Put off a Train.
United States Judgo Bellinger believes
that it is worth $300 to be put off a train
by a conductor. That is tho amount of
damage he allowed Mrs. Birbara Leland
in her case against the horthern Pacific
railroad yesterday. Mrs. Leland wanted
$2500, but she did not get it. It is usual
in damage cases to ask for several times
the real damages.
"When I was on tho road." said au ex-
conduclor, commenting on tin verdict,
"I never put a person off for trying to
ride on a scalper's ticket, even when or
dered to do so by tho officials. I knew
very well that it was good grounds for a
damage case to put a porson off .1 train.
It made no difference tome whether or
not the ticket read 'transferable.' I
havo seen these cases tried in tho courts,
and the railway companies lose, too
often. They always loec, and havo to
"When I ran across a ticket which I
had been ordered to tako up, I would try
to do so and collect the fare, giving a re
ceipt, and an explanation that upon pre
sentation at the head passenger office tho
money would bo refunded. But if tho
passenger roared' too hard I punched
the ticket and said no more.
"Railroads put other silly regulations
on their tickets. Those for round trips
must 1)0 signed before they aro good for
the return. Now that is foolishness, and
every time a paesengor is put of n train
for failure to do this, ho can collect dam
ages. On passes thero is prinlod a state
ment that tho holder forfeits all right to
collect damages In case of on accidont,
which is absurd, and has bcon so decided
by the courts." Telegram.

eventful career; impelled by the unut
terable strength of light, intellect and
equality. The machinery In nf th
grandest order, and so ingeniously
wrought in its finer mould, that discord
and confusion do not appear; controlled
and guided by tho most scientific engi
neer, and directed by a conductor who
nover falls to punch a foreienor'a lickfit
or give the right change back, and ho
uovor lurgeia to occasionally attach a
new palace car.
Thero has been but a few strikes, and
hold-ups have never been known. Onr

wo have au increased yearning after the
euccesaof a glorious career, and we are
stirred by the same ambition that
aroused them to gain a national indepen
dence. During the Rsvolutiouary war the old
lories of Englaud ridiculed tht. idea of
the independence of tho thirteen colo
nics; they scorned the very thought of
such a thing coming to pass, they de
clared that it was the weakness and
lolly of ambitious men, that caused them
to dream of independence and the na
tional dignity of a republic. But the
founders ol this great republic knew
well hat they were doing, and acted
only with reganl to tho feelings and
wants of an oppressed anil down trod
den people, and the reeult proved that
it was not a story of fiction, spread by
the enthusiasm of an ignorant people;
no, not this. But by the wisdom of the
wisest men thero was placed in minia
ture a perfect nation. Tl ey cst all
intereets in one mold and sharpened
their siyords with determination and
put their trust in God,
Our forefathers did not mould a gold
en calf, but built a golden house for
babi atton. more contly than the golden
house of Nero; yea, they formed a golden
