Chicago, Ill., January 8.

S. D. KIMBARK, a wholesale iron merchant and wagon manufacturer, was fined $500 and costs by Judge Blodgett yesterday for disregarding an injunction issued in the case of Bradley BURR against Mr. KIMBARK to restrain him from infringing upon Mr. BURR's patent for manufacturing wagon dashboards and bodies. The restraining order was made by Judge Blodgett on March 14 of last year, and, despite its prohibitions, Mr. KIMBARK went on infringing on the patent. The Court ordered him to pay the fine and costs in ten days or go to jail.
