The Circuit Court is still in session with Judge O'Neill on the bench. After this week Judge O'Neill goes to Eau Claire and Judge Helms takes his place here to finish this term of Court.


In the county court there have been two examinations of insane persons during the last week: one was Mrs. Fessler, formerly Mrs. Arndt, who was sent to the county poor house from the city of Greenwood. She was found to be not insane and returned to the poor house, and proceedings were commenced for the appointment of a guardian for her. The other was John Ogle who had been sent to the poor house from the town of Thorp; he was found to be insane and was committed to the hospital at Mendota, but on Monday before the commitment he was remanded to the sheriff for several days until investigation could be made as to his place of legal residence, and was finally committed as a State charge, upon the ground that he was incompetent to gain a residence at the time he came to Clark county.


The case of the State against William Schmidt charged with disturbing a school meeting in the Town of Mayville, a verdict of acquittal was directed by the Court at the close of the State's testimony. We understand that these are all of the criminal cases that will be tried this term.
