—The Supreme Court has made a decision recently, which not a few farmers interested, as well as bankers and others engaged in discounting such paper, should make a note of, to-wit: That the innocent giver of a promissory note to a lightning rod man, a patent right agent, or other travelling swindler, is not liable for more than the amount of the original and bona fide contract. This reverses the ruling of the district courts and has the effect of protecting many farmers and others who have of late years been victimized by sharpers who have taken their notes for small amounts, which by filling blanks, were fraudulently increased to large amounts and disposed of to local banks and note shavers.—Ex-
OF JOHN A. GARDNER,
A Former Citizen of Orrville,
On a Charge of Swindling in Missouri Lands.
John A. Gardner, the real estate dealer mentioned below, is well known to this community, having been born and reared to manhood on a farm a couple of miles west of town. He left here about twelve years ago to engage in business for himself, first going to Alliance, where he remained only a short time. He then took up his residence in Cleveland and embarked in the real estate business, wfiere he has since remained aud accumulated considerable of a fortune. His parents and a brother and his family reside in town and are respected citizens of Orrville. We know nothing about Mr. Gardner's business and venture no opinion as to his guilt or innocence, but hope that his venerable parents will be spared the pain and humiliation of his conviction. His bond has been fixed at $4,500, and his brother Eli went to Cleveland on Friday to go his security, but he refused to accept the kindness and consequently is still an inmate of the jail. Boston Herald, Tuesday ^ August 8.
As soon as Mr. Perkins commenced work upon the case he acertained that the man Gardner, w.io, by the way, is a wealthy real estate dealer at Cleveland, O., had iufluentia^rclatives in the east, one of whom Rev. George W. Hudson, a Methodist clergyman, was stationed over an influential charge s.t Ellsworth, Me. He accordingly laid his plans to capture the much-wanted man, provided lie made his appearance in the last mentioned locality, and that his plans were successfully laid will be seen by a perusal of the rest of the article. After per-"Ststent and continued work the officer ascertained that the Reverend Hudson was engaged in prcaehing "glad tidings of great joy" at the Methodist camp-meeting at North port, Me., and that his brother-in-law. che mail Gardner, was a devoted member of the Methodist Church in his native city, he.would, in all probability, make his api sarance in that part ot the country. He accordingly took a flying trip to the camp meeting in question, arriving at that place last Saturday. On Sunday he attended the j preaching services, which by the way, were conducted by the man Hudson, and there discovered the object of his search, an imperfect description of his man having been given him before he left Pittsburg. After the preaching service had been concluded he followed his man to the cottage of Rev. Mr. Hudson on the camp grounds, and then being in doubt as to the scope of the local criminal laws, drove to Belfast in order to secure the assistance ot a local sherifl". That obtained he started back to the camp ground, and forthwith stationed himself at the back door of the clergyman's cottage, to prevent ex t from that source, while the sheriff went to the front door to asceratain whether or not the prisoner was within. Upon knocking at the door, Rev. Mr. Hudson appeared, and to the question whether or not the man Gardner was within, he replied that lie "had been, but had just gone out. In the meantime, Mr. Gardner, having heard
til three weeks ago. The following is Mr. Gardner's statement, which is given for what it is worth :
';The stories about my 'skipping out' are not true in any particular. I had no idea that any one would claim that there had been any difficulty in flndin»me until I saw the statements in the papers about the shrewd detective work, etc. I simply went to my brother-in-law's with my wife and family to spend my summer vacation, as I do every year. I did not adopt the name of Atwood, and my wife had her trunks marked, 'Mrs. J. A. Gardner,' so that there could have been
xo difficulty in finding us." In regard to the charges against him Mr. Gardner said: "I am prepared to prove that I bought all the lands with good intent, paid my money for them, and can show where I got them and what I paid for them. I have not handled any of these lands for three years, and when I discovered that soma of the titles were proving defective I immediately notified my attorney, Mr. Goulder, to look up all such cases and replace the titles with those of undoubted value. I made a large purchase at sheriff's sale of titles of these lauds to meet this emergency. Mr. Goulder gave the matter his immediate attention and spent a good deal of time upon it. He found some titles which were not solid and replaced them to the satisfa^Hen of the parties in every instance where he could discover sueh cases or the parties applied to him or me. This cast an especial htAship on me because of late it has been difficulty to get lands wkh good titles in that section. I have donoso, however, at a large expense of money and labor. Another thing that delayed the settlement of some transactions was the fact that other trades had been made and the property had pdStsed into the hands of third parties, but I have stood ready in every case to issue £ood titles. I have been a large dealer in farm lands and vessels and never made any money out of the Western land business. Many of the Western land trades have been made through agents, who furnished the lands themselves, but they had to give mortgages to help ¿hem out and it was necessary to make the deeds to me when the transfers were made, and the agents talked then that I had this Western land which I would trade property, when iu reality these lands belonged to the agents themselves and 1 had no reason to know anything about the titles, as the deeds to the lauds WKP.il never issfedin my name,
not even those which come from my own transactions. These land titles in which I and others delt, were sent through banks and by express, C. O. D. Each conveyance was accompanied by an official abstract from a county recorder showing the title good of record. I paid money for them, and have had faith i:i the beiimj abstracts. I sopposed the abstracts to be valid until they were proven not to be. No man has been wronged who has not had his case righted if he called upon my attorney, and every thing has been done to inform those who might possibly have been defrauded, that everything would be made strait if we were called upon. I
About half past two o'clock on Saturday afternoon a horrible accident occurred lu the north end of town which resulted fatally to the victim and bereft a home of au only son on whom his parents had, for good reasons, dotingly cast their af-fectio ,s. Rodney Jamison, with several others, were unloading oats from a wagon, his son, Charles Emery, aged 12};, years, being an occasional assistant. The boy's services not being required for several minutes before the accident he climbed upon and lay down on one of the sleepers over the barn floor. Ora Wads-worth, one of the assistants, requested the boy to go for water, and he started to crawl to the end of the sleeper to descend the ladder, but had not advanced more than a step or two when he missed his hold and fell violently to the barn floor, a distance of ten or twelve feet, striking on the side of his head and fracturing the base of his skull. He was instantly picked up' and carried to the house and Dr. Grill called in. The boy remained in an insensible condition for an hour when death relieved him of his suffering. It is a distressing and heartrending blow to the boy's parents, and the sympathy of everybody is extended to them in their sudden bereavement. The funeral took place at 9 o'clock a. m. on Monday, the remains being deposited in the East Union grave yard near Ilon-eytown.

the ofiicer asking for him, started out of the rear door, only to jump directly into the arms of the United States secret op-perators, who forthwith took him to the jail at Belfast, from which place he was subsequently taken to Agusta and thence to Boston, where he arrived last evening en route to the west. Upon being taken into custody, Gardner denied any criminal intent, simply saying he had purchased whatever lands had come into his possession in a legitimate manner, and had nothing whatever criminal in the premises. Gardner is a man of good address, and evidently had a good deal of money at his control. Whether or not he made it in the swindling of settler out their lands is not definitely known as the present writing, although the officer claims to have information that will convict him without a doubt. Mr. Bliss, the district attorney, in this city, in an interview last night said that, although the Government had not suffered any pecuniary loss, it having made arrangements to sell lands to bona fide purchasers at the low rate of 12^ cents per acre, still its officers feel bound to protect the Government against the machinations of a gang of men who had beén selling land at the rate of $1.25 per acre to which they had no title and for which they had paid nothing, when, at the same time, the Government was receiving for the same land but 12)^ cents pe^r acre. The gang these swindles numbers, or has numbered, among it members some of the most prominent politicians of the West, many of whom are now serving terms of imprisonment for their fraudulent transactions. Among thein may be mentioned Col. Robt. L. Linsday, of St. Louis, a son of the recorder of one of the counties of Missouri; William Burns, of Pittsburg, Pa., vice president of the Metropolitan Bank of Pittsburg; Addison W. Burns, son of the former ; John Brady, a prominent notary of St. Louis ; John F. Richards, also a well-known notary ; George L. Brower ; Samuel L. Carter ; Levi E. Whybark, also of St. Louis, ai»d David L. Bingham. Cleveland Leader, August il.
John A. Gardner arrived in the city at 7 o'clock yesterday morning in charge of Mr. G. B. Perkins, the United States Secret Service officer who arrested him last Sunday. He was taken to the county jail and locked up, as no one was present to go on his bond. His brother, Mr. Eli Gardner, of Orrville arrived during the forenoon and offered to sign the bail bond, but County Prosecutor Stone preferred to have surety who owned property in Cuyahoga county. Mr Goulder, who is Gardner's attorney, was actively engaged in attempting to secure a bondsman all day, but as his efforts were unsuccessful his client still remains in jail, where he says
HE IS REASONABLY COMFORTABLE, although it is an entirely new place for him, as he was never arrested before in his life. When visited by a Leader reporter Mr. Gardner asiound sitting in the corridor, inside the jail, and made a statement regarding himself, which is published at his request, although it does not correspond in some respects with the statements made by the officers. Mr, Perkins says that Gardner wasgoingiun-der the name of Atwood, and it is stated that he has been at Detroit and various other points since last spring, and did not remain here, as he states, quietly un-
will make a vigorous fight, and do not think any case can be made against me. I have, however, fortified myself with eminent legal assistance. Mr. Goulder will have cl^rge of my case and wil 1 be assisted by Hon. John McSweeney and probably by Robert G. Ingersoll.
Mr. Gardner has been a prominent member of the East Cleveland Methodist Church, and has always been considered an eminently respectable citizen. His wife, who is a sister of Colonel Coony Beck, remained in the East with her children.
The case against Gardner will come up during the September term, but an effort will be made to secure a continuance until the January term of Common Pleas.

A boy about eight years old was severely injured 011 the farm of Richard Porter near Fox Lake, last Tuesday by a mowing machine. He jumped over the knife while the machine was in motion and received a severe wound through one ankle, the knife cutting through the joint, scarcely an inch of tissue holding the foot, while the other foot was also severely cut. The attending surgeon, Dr. Dissi-iger, thinks that amputation of one leg may yet be necessary.

Saturday, Aug. 5th.—Through the politeness of C. C. Cochran, and the kindness of J. S. Oliver, the manager, we received a pass over the W. & L. E. railroad to Huron and return, 011 a tour of inspection, so to speak. We left hereon July 17th, and reached Huron the same evening. Passing over about seventy-five miles of our new road, we found it substanially constructed, and in as line a condition for running as any of the old roads. We talked a few minutes at Norwalk on our way, with the gentlemanly manager, Mr. J. S. Oliver, who is always full of business for the road, and regreted his inability to send me over the road to Toledo, there being at that time no trains running over that portion of the line. At Huron we remained oyer night in the only hotel iu t^e place, except the one at the depot. We confess that we 'found the poorest fare for a first class price of any hotel we ever stopped at before. We took the
5 a. m. train next morning on the L. S.
6 M. S. railroad for Toledo where we arrived in time for a sumptuous breakfast at the Burnett House. After a stroll about the beautiful city of Toledo for a couple of hours we again took a train on the L. S. & M. S. railroad for a ride to Lansing, Mich. We must say we were surprised and highly pleased with the fine country and splendi.l towns and cities we found all along our route through
Michigan to its beautifnl capital, the city of Lansing. At the latter city we found our cousin, John Vanwert, and his daughter Ida, in waiting for us. A few miles drive into the country found us at the County Infirmary, a fine three story-edifice kept by Mr. Vanwert, he being superintendent. Here <s e find a pleasant house and hospitable entertainment during our stay. While at Lansing we visited the State House, one of the finest structures ofthe kind we ever 6aw, built in the best style of modern architecture. We were shown through the building by the guide, into all the diflerant state departments until we reached the dome, where we had a fine view of the city. We were informed by our guiJe that this is the first capitol building on record that was completed within the appropriation, it being a million and a half dollars. We left Lansing on the 27th of July on the D. L. & N. railroad for (he city of Detroit. Here we visited the City Ilall and other points of interest, after which we boarded i<Jolinjr Bull's" train 011 the Canada Southern railroad for Toledo, and arrived at Dalton next day after a ten days absence from home, "a wiser if not better man."
Saturday, August 12.—People are beginning to recover from the effects ofthe terrible storm of the lid. inst New fences are replacing the old ones which were swept away. Many of^ro bridges however are still untouched, the County Commissioners being too slow to act in this important matter. The W. & L. E. railroad track between this place and Burton City was speedily put in order and trains were again running 011 time in about forty-eight hours after the waters subsided, although it will require yet several thousand dollars to repair the damage to the road and to place it in j as good condition,»» before. The gravel train is running with a full force of men filling up the wash-outs. Busiuess in town is active. Farmers are now busy cutting their oats, using the reaper, the cradle and the scythe, as occasion requires, the oats being badly mixed up and lying flat as a result ofthe storm,
The corn crop in this vicinity on account of the hot weather and recent rains, is fast-coming on, and bids fair in many places to make an average yield.
Poles are now being put up and in a few days we shall have a telephone communication with the depot.
Why do not the council "get up and go" for Bome sort of a road to the depot before the fall rains set in, when tne street from the brick yard to the depot will be almost Impassible? Why this apathy and tardiness in a work of such necessity to the citizens of the town ?
Stewart Craven was here a few days with his herd of Texan ponies, and he disposed of several in this vicinity. Mr. Craven is the celebrated elephant tamer. He travelled for some years with Fore-paugh's show and was sent for at one time to bring under subjection the elephant which killed its keeper. Mr. Craven informs us that he attended the birth of the first elephant that was ever born in the civilized world, and also the second about two years ago.
"Brimstone" will accept our thanks for his report of events occurring in this place during our absence in Michigan. We regret that we could not ha ve been here. We also acknowledge the recepit of a kind letter from him which was handed'to us on our return. We hope Brimstone will call again when we are at home.
