The Horsewhipping Case.
Minneapolis, Feb. 5.—Glyndon, Minn. special: The Mullett-Jewett case adjourned to Tuesday, February 12. This is a case growing out of loaning a diamond ring by Capt. Mullett, of Glyndon, to Maud Jewett, of Moorhead. Mullett sued to recover the ring and was publicly horsewhipped by the woman for which she was arrested and bailed, pending examination for assault with a dangerous weapon.

The injuries of Capt. Mullett, who was horsewhipped by Maud Jewett at Moorhead, were quite serious, and he was delirious for a time but is mending. The case against the Jewetts was deferred to February 12. The Glyndon Times, at the house of the captain, states the casus belli thus:
Early last week Captain Mullett and a diamond ring of his parted company, the ring going into the possession of the woman Jewett; she claims the ring was given in consideration of favors shown Mullett, but he says it was loaned merely that she might wear it at a party. On Saturday he instituted criminal proceedings, procuring the arrest of Maud Jewett, for alleged theft of the ring. She is now under bonds to appear in Justice Syron's court, Moorhead, February 7, to answer this charge. Out of this variance grew the assault of Tuesday night.
