Literary Note From the Century Co.
The Century is to have a serial
story by Irving Bacheller the au-
thor of that popular novel "Ebeu
Holden." It is a border tale of
1812. Two types oi the men who
have helped to make America are
net forth in it: one a northern
Yankee quaint rugged and wise;
the other.a man who has the hardy
traits of a Puritan with the roman-
tic temperament of a Cavalier. The
scene of the story is in the neigh-
borhood of Lake Champlain and
the title is "D'ri and I." It will
begin in the March Century and
run for six months.

Judge Gill has been kept very
buy during the week not only
while coutt was in open session
but he ha9 been compelled to de-
vote much time in chambers.
Motions have been made galore
argued and passed upon and the
docket has been kept up with.
During the week the fact that
only two civil trials have been bad
before juries is no criterion to the
vast amount o.' legal tangles that
were straightened out.
The first trial was an intruder
case brought by David Sprouse
against W. Coates. The jury
found for Sprouse giving him pos
session of the property in ques-
tion together with $65 damages.
A notable case that has attracted
great attention was the action
brought by Joe Davis and others
against Wm. Stephens Stan Sua-
gee and Bose Fuerstein. Every
point in the trial was stubbornly
contested by the attorneys of each
side. After an elaborate and care-
fully prepared charge by Judge
Gill the jury retired last evening
and returned a verdict this morn-
ing finding for the plaintiff for
possession or the Stephens claim
with damages for rental since
December. 1894. for 81575. The
jury found that Suagee was entiiled
to possession of the claim contested
known as the Stucke claim and
that Rose Fuerstein was legnlly
