NOTE—We understand that the Trimmer and Allsebrook bills were for sheep killed in the Limekiln hill raid, and we hear that the matter will now go into the courts, as Messrs. Allsebrook and Trimmer intend suing the county.

G.S. Allsebrook has sold his entire flock of sheep to Messrs. Errickson & Hamman, who will move the flock out of the county as fast as possible Sheridan & Mootz have disposed of their holdings, which will also be taken out of the country.
