Penrose Cass county brought suit against George Williams Maey for the Possession a seven year old boy. The strange feature the Case was that Penrose is the father and Williams the Stepfather the boy. Some years ago the Mother secured by decree court Possession the by and a divorce from Penrose who was a Drunken improvident worthless fellow. About a year ago she married Williams and three four weeks ago she died after giving birth to a child.

Before proceeding to the consideration the Grange in the state we desire to Point out a few the singular facts developed by the numbers Given at week. By reference to the descriptive Nam Here it will be observed that the three counties Cass was the first to commence and the last to discontinue the Granges and that Howard was the last to commence and the i first to discontinue their organic Ilion. In two instances Cass organized two Granges consecutively Carroll did the same in three instances and Howard did the same As Carroll and in one instance organized three consecutively. We have carefully joked through the list working Granges in the state As Given in the proceed Ugi the last state Grange which we have received since the last writing and have been unable to find even a singe ail that have existed in Cass and Carroll counties among the number.
