MILACA, Minn., Nov. 26.-Can a bank retain funds belonging to a municipality in spite of an order from the council? The case will be taken to the supreme court to decide in an appeal in the following case:

"Milaca has something over seven thousand dollars in one of the banks of that town. It appears that the village council designated a depository for the fund and that the treasurer refused to comply with the demand of the recorder to transfer the half designated to the other bank, the action of the council being for the purpose of dividing up the fund with the two banks of that place. Upon the refusal of the bank holding the whole of the fund to give up half, the council then passed a resolution designing the other bank for the entire amount, and upon refusal to give it up, brought mandamus. Judge Qvale signed the order at the term of court and the matter was argued before Judge Baxter. Briefs were submitted. However Judge Baxter mad [sic.] decide, the case will go to the supreme court.

Grandparents Wanted Child.
There was quite a lively little contest in the probate court Tuesday before Judge VanAlstein for the possession of Lulu Myrtle Hissam, the little year-old child of the late Roy W. Hissam, of Milaca. It seems that the grandparents of the child, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Aldrich of Minneapolis, wanted to have the little one, while Miss Emma Hissam of Milaca, a sister with whom Mr. Hissam and his child had lived for some time, desired to keep her brother's little girl. Attorney Foster of Milaca appeared for Miss Hissam and Judge Keith for the grandparents Hissam, a brother of the child's father was present, as was also Mr. and Mrs Aldrich. Both sides were heard by Judge VanAlstein. It appeared in the hearing that the father of the child expressed a wish that the babe should be given to his sister, a maiden lady, who has had the care of the little one ever since its birth. The judge decided to leave the child in the possession of its aunt who was appointed guardian of the little one and the property that belongs to it. The grandparents were very much disappointed by not being allowed to have the child.
