Experiments Numbering Over 300
Form Subject Matter for Story
in Medical Journal.
LONDON, Nov. 12 Experiments
numbering over 300, conducted over a
term of three years, have formed the
subject matter for a communication
from a physician to a well-known medi
cal Journal, to tho effect that the raya
emitted by the human body differ In
color nccordlng to the charucter and
temperament of the person. The fol
lowing particulars are given by the
"The rays emanating from a very
passionate man have a deep red hue;
one whose keynote in life is to be good
and do good throws, off pink rays. Tho
ambitious man emits orange rays; the
deep thinker deep blue; the lover of
art and refined surroundings yellow;
an anxious, depressed person, gray.
"One who leads a low, debased life
throws off muddy brown rays; a devo
tional, good-meaning person, light
blue; a progresalve-mindcd one, light
green, and a physically or mentally III
one dark green."
The doctor admits that his theory Is
apt to be received with incredulity and
amusement, but he asserts that It is
strengthened by the fact that the color
sense of the human race was many
thousands of years in reaching its pres
ent stage of development

NO LIGHT ON TRAGEDY.
Auburn Horror Is as Groat a Mystery
AUBURN, Cal., Nov. 12 Nothing
new of Importance has thus far been
developed by the Coroner's Investiga
tion of the Weber tragedy. Adolph
Weber, the surviving member of the
family, testified that his father got
very angry when crossed and had often
said serious things, but was over his ,
anger In a few minutes, There had
been no quarrel on the day or evening
of the murders. When In San Fran
cisco this summer his mother and his
father had a dispute, In which the
mother asked for a division of the
property. Nothing was said further,
and the matter was dropped.
To offset the murder and suicide the
ory, the bullet wound in Mr. Weber's
body took a downward course, which
would indicate that it was not fired by
himself. The 32-callber pistol with
which the victims were killed has not
yet been found.
Other witnesses testified that the
elder Weber had a violent temper. Mrs.
Potter, a neighbor, testified that she
saw two women in the window up
stairs in the room above the kitchen
in the Weber house, and heard them
scream, "Save me, for God's sake,
save me." Her father-in-law says he
heard the same words. This was after
the fire alarm had been turned in.
Adolph Weber was arrested tonight on
the chargo of murder.
