All yesterday tho District Court was
busy with tho trial ot Jefferson Wilson,
charged with murdering his comrade,
William Flemtning. United States Dis
trict Attorney Jeffords placed a long ar
ray qf witnesses upon the stand. Black
men and white, soldiers and civilians,

defendant's witnesses in charge, and
carefully drew from them their stories.
He relied upon tho testimony of the

when i Ieming was killed. Several men
were sworn to establish defendant's
character for peaceableness and inoffen
sive demeanor. Finally tho prisoner
himself went upon the stand, and pur
lorted to state minutely every move
ment of his during the fateful night.

"We find strange mementoes on somo
of our bodies," said an undertaker to a
Montreal Star reporter.
"Tho other day wo were preparing
tho body of an unknown for burial. IIo
had met a violent death, but there was
tho most sereno expression on his faco
that I ever saw on anyone.
When we dressed him for tho grave
we found the lord's prayer beautifully
written in India ink on his forearm.
It was as fine a jiece of tatooing as I
ever saw, and it set me to thinking that
perhaps that was what ho depended on
for comfort and that gave tho jeaceful
look to his face."
