Full and Half-Bloods
St. Louis, March 31--A decision was handed down in the U. S. Court of Appeals establishing the rights of the children of full and half-blood relationships. The case was appealed from Indian Territory and contemplated a tract of land between the children of DENNIS ABNER, his heirs from his will and GEORGE W. FINLEY and others, uncles and cousins of Abner’s children . The point at law was the contention of the uncle and cousins that JOSEPH ABNER, the son of Abner by his second wife, was only a child of a half-blood and they had a right to participate in the inheritance. The decision today sustains the decision of the lower court that JOSEPH ABNER had the full rights of a full-blood son in the inheritance and need not share it with his uncles and cousins who are not equal heirs with him.

A Big Factory
The Shelton Automatic Store Company has done some effective work recently and will be ready to begin the manufacture of cabinets within a short time. … the cabinet is a machine, a salesman which itself and almost an article of merchandise may be sold through it. While it is a coin-in-slot machine, it is not of the gambling order. The merchandise to be purchased can be seen by the customer and he may satisfy himself as to the amount and quality before purchasing. The cabinet possesses a remarkable feature in that it carefully and correctly weighs every coin and if the coin does not come fully up to the standard, it passes back to the purchases instead of bringing the merchandise. The device is an absolute necessity in any cigar store, confectionary or fruit stand and can be used in any mercantile establishment.
