The jury, after a deliberation of close upon two hours, returned a verdi|Ct ot not guilty about 5:30.

C. P. Peterson, and Harry Hearne gave evidence that a fair iirlce had' been paid for' the sheep. Evidence was also produced that seven' weeks had elapsed Jbet'ween the timo Mr. Kerr counted his sheep and tlib time they were discovered on Stewart's farm.
