"A sort of a family row," up the pike, filled the county jail, last Wednesday and promises to add to the representation of this county at Waupun. If the stories of the parties in the affair are one half true, they can be spared by any community. Until an examination is held, we withhold names and particulars.

That Family Row

The little family row, up the pike, leading to the arrest of several parties, of which mention was made last week, has furnished two cases for the criminal calendar at the next term of the Circuit Court for this county. The examination in the case of Pat Christie, charged with setting fire to a barn belonging to his brother,, Jas. Christie, took place before Justice Kountz, last Friday, and resulted in his having been held to bail for his appearance at the next term of court, in default of which he now occupies apartments in the rear of the court-house, at the expense of the county. The examination of the charge against Jas. Christie and the Bostwick brothers for killing and appropriating to their own use a certain heifer belonging to Robert Ross, was held before the same officer on the following day, and they were also held to an appearance at the next term of court. Having procured the amount of bail fixed upon by the Court, they were released from custody.
