"When is that grand Jury going

manded Jack Floyd tho county as-
sessor yesterday. "I don't feel
like running much myself and I feel"
lots easier after they've gotten
through and adjourned." Whother
tho genial assessor had any grounds
for. feeling uneasy Is a matter of
sonio question but in some quarters
there is probably Just ground for
apprehension. The grand jury Is
still busy and many indictments aro
being turned in. Not all these In
dletments will come t0 trial bees-use
some of the parties wanted have
quietly left the scene of their re
