"When the big procession reached the place
where refreshments were to le acrxed It
was discovered that there were but three

o'clock not a dozen of tho Washington boys
were left on the BhorC.

it would have been better had our Balti

order to be sure his associates would be
well entertalnod. He said: "When I was

"I think It has been cut off with some
sharp instrument. In my opinion, It could
never hae been torn."
The expert then testified at length con
cerning the Ink used in the mysterious
paper. He talked freely of the manners,
old and new, of the manufacture of Ink,
and concluded by saying:: "I have made
only a microscopical examination of the Ink
on the paper, bat it Is my conclusion that
thcUnk in the will differs In lu character
istics from any inks I have ever examined
that were used at the time the paper Is
supposed to have lieen written."
A CHEMICAL TEST.
A half hour's recess was taken at 12.30
o'clock and when ccurt re-convened the
subjcctorink was again taken up.
"We wan t this witness to ma ke a chemical
test lieforo court and Jury," said Mr.
Worthington, "on some word in the letter.
If this paiier, as I understand Prof. Car
valho. is written In India Ink the nction of
the chemical will hae no effect on the

will readily show disintegration."
Mr. Darlington and his associates object

A drop of (he add was- iwnred upon it
and jury nnd court and lawyers waited.
Then the sensation of the trial was
sprung. The exicrt took up the paper
after the chemical had operated for two
and one-half minutes and looked at it
carefully through his glass.
"In my Judgment," he began slowly,
"that is a loaded Ink. It is leaded with
'archil' a chemical. This Is a characteristic
of Arnold's writing fluids, and he has been
using it in their manufacture for the last
"How aliout licfo're that t!s:c,""inquired
"It was not used by him."
"Was it used in any inks over ten years

"Was 'archil' used in Inks in 1S73?"
Mr. Darlington objected, saying the wit
ness speaks from information alone.
"I speak from the experience T have had.
and that is as much as any man in the coun
try." answered the professor.
"What, then, is jour conclusion?" asked
Mr. Worthington, as Mr. Darlington with
drew his objection.
"Judging from the ink alone, I would
say that paper was no; written in 1873."

bushels both sides wa-s $22.50. Many
followed our advice. Result we bought
Puts at 50 1-2, Calls at 58 1-2, good
