Madison Journal, 26th - Last evening William and Bertha Millard, of Black River Falls, were brought here by Marshal Oakley and Deputy Main and lodged in jail. They were arrested in LaCrosse, January 17th, for passing counterfeit silver dollars, and when searched had about seventy-five "queer" dollars in an old stocking. This afternoon they were arraigned before Judge Bunn, pleaded guilty, and were sentenced to three years’ imprisonment at Joliet. The woman might have claimed extenuating circumstances and received a lighter sentence, but she insisted on staying with her husband, and asked for the same sentence, so that they might come out together and begin life anew. Millard is a thick set rather rough-looking man, of the class so common in lumber countries, while his wife is a mild-looking, blue-eyed little woman, without any appearance of possessing the courage to stick by her husband in the manner she has.
