A case which seemed to be of considerable interest to the people of De-Ka'-b county, judging from the large number of her citizens in attendance, came up in the Noble circuit court on Tuesday of last week, with Judge Hartman, ot Auburn, on the bench. The case referred to was that of Stofer vs. Thompson, and was broueht to this ISKmrt^on^ ♦ change of venue^ in .which ^flli^ pohi ^ bimghC.^ m^lkk Charles l^ompson for seduction and breach of a marriage contract. The attorneys in the case were Pen field and Phillips, of DeKalb, for the plaintiff, and Judge McClellan, Gen. Blair and a Mr. Somers, all of DeE[alb, for the defendant. Almost a day and a half was consumed in hearing the evidence in the case, after which the arguments were made; Penfield closing in a very strong and able argument. The jury returned a verdict on Thursday for the plaintiff, assessing her damages at $1,100. This is well, b^t had they made it four times that amoiUit it would have been better. The I. I. & I. Railroad. The people of the southern part of this county have been working hard and in a commendable manner to secure the location of the above named road through that section of the county, and for some time it has been supposed that when the road was built, if it ever was, it would be constructed on the proposed line running through Wolf Lake and thence eastward to Garrett or to Alburn Junction on the Baltimore & Ohio, making one of these places its eastern terminus. That s^tion of country deserves railroad, but we fear that their hope of securing the "Three I's" Will be blasted, if any reliance can be placed in the following which we clip from the Plymouth Democrat of last week. It says: A mortgage for $400,000 on the road bed of the Three I Railroad from Plymouth, Indiana, to Streator Illinois, has been filed in the Recorder's office in this county. This looks as thou| the company intended to build t road from North Jndson to this place in the near future. When this road is completed Plymouth will be the best railroad center in Northern Indiana. If the road is built to Plymouth it will doubtless make that its eastern terminus, making connections there with the Pittsburg road to the east and in that event our Wolf Lake neighbors will have to transfer their labors and energies to the Gold Spike, and endeavor to make it a reality instead of a paper railroad as now.
