It was the result of an old brawl. After a
prelimary trial the offender was held un-
der $1.000 bonds which he was unable to
give and remains in jail.
After a preliminary examination last
week the brand-burners of AVheeler eoun-
ty were all jeleased on bail exeept Zack

of $H00 each and one Jordan ia the sum
of $160. Much dissatisfaction was aroused

understood that the organization will be
contested in the courts on the ground tliat
the requisite twenty days'notice was not
