and again, but always hopeful, alwavs
resourceful, Albert T. Patrick, the

gestion of Rice's lungs was not caused
by the chloroform which it was charged
Patrick caused to be administered, but
by chemicals in the embalming fluid
used. He will also quote from the
opinion of Justice O'Brien, who, when
the court of appeals denied a new trial,
wrote in a dissenting opinion: "I would
not convict a dog of biting a sheap on
