Monday Gone Visiting

Monday McFarland, following his acquittal and release, took his departure for White Cloud, Kas., yesterday to visit his relatives who reside there. Probably there is not a more delighted human being in the country today than Monday, and possibly not another so thoroughly surprised as was he when the verdict was read. Just how long he will remain absent is not known, but it is not probable he will return for several weeks. Whether or not he will decide to remain permanently in Lincoln Monday has not decided, and it would not be surprising if he should make up his mind to pitch his tent in another state.
