Ciiaos in Jury Matters. Our
Grand Jury as was that of several
other counties of the State, was sum
moned in pursuance of the new law
providing for the separate designa
tion of the Grand and petty juries.
This law has already been decided
unconstitutional by the Supreme
Court, wherefore it becomes neces
sary to proceed under the old law.
This turn of affairs involves but a
trifle of extra expense in this county
comparatively, as the authorities had
noticed it in time to correct the error
in advance of the convening of our
Court. '

crops are promised.
