began yesterday moruiug in tho Criminal
Court, tho juiy having subsucpuunlly been
It. J. Hones was tho first witness ex
amined. He testified that ho was iu tho
employ of John Wal:di on tho Otli of Sep
tember; uiet Ithoda Turner there oil that
date, when sho called with a death certi
ficate signed by Dr. Nixon, an J wunted a
burial permit, saying that a young whito
woman was dead at her house and it w as
necessary to bury her nt onco. SI10 said
that it was good for bur that whenever
they got into trouble they came to her.
Ho hud tho body buried at ouco, and it
was disinterred on tho follow ing morning.
A post mortem examination was held in
the afternoon. 1 he cortillcntu was signed
by Dr. Nixon, ami it alleged that tho do
ceased diud of a congestive chill.
Dr. F. A. Williamson. Secretary of tho
t urd of Health, testilied as follows: I
know Ithoda Turner, but never met Dr.
Nixon until several duvs aco. when ho

a rotupMlive chill, bhn wunted tlio hotly
moved at once. It was Bwelled so, she
said, that sho was afraid it would burst.
She hud letter from Persons iu Mississippi,
aud wanted 1110 to iuloriu them, if I wrote
to them, that sho hud received no money
for taking care of Ihe girl. Saw the death
rertilicule afterward, aud it was signed by
Dr. Nixon, assigning acongestivo chill as
rausu of death, ltho lu was isisitive that
the girl did not die in child birth. Did
not see her any moro thut day. i'iduot
sadist iu the post-mortem cxaminaton.
Dr. II. I. Williford was then intro
duced to tell of tho result of tho post
mortem examination over which ho pro
sided. He hsd no doubt thut deceased
hud given birth to a child only a short
time Isdore her death. He gave such do
tails of her eon. lition as to warrant the
correctness of his conclusions.
J. Curry, a clerk iu Dr. Tuck's drug
store, said that he knew Ithoda Turner;
that she culled at tho drug store one day
in August, a short time Is-(ore the death
of decessed. and wunted to sco tho pro

MISSED BY TWO INCHES,
JUDGE P. 0. WRIOHT'8 NARROW ES
CAPE FROM AS8AS0INATION.
Some Dastard, Whoso Identity Cannot
B Imagined, Firea at Him Through
th Window of Hla Room A Thrill-lng-
Wns it designed or through Ignorance?
Judgo Pitkin C. Wright is revolving this
question in his mind with the additional
ouu: Will it occur again?
On Sunday night lust the Judge retired
early to his room on the third floor of tho
Frunsio I House, cornerSoeondand Union
streets, in rear, nnd wus asleep by 10
o'clock. Between thut hour and 11 o'clock
ho was purtinlly aroused by a report
Without investigating ho took a new posi
tiou and was soonslumheringas only those
who huvo a clear conscience cun. Next
morning he arose nnd hud his attention
draw n to tlio one window hy an unpleas
ant string of cool breeze contin
ually iKiuring through it. It was
a largo liolo about one inch in diam
eter, and clean cut Tho prcsenco of
that hole, which ho knew to bo a very
lute arrival, aud the report of tho night
before, bo could not disuasiMiuto in his
mind. At the time, however, ho bolioved
tho disturbance the work of some mis
creant who had thrown a pieco of brick or
smull stono. Tho Idea of a pistol or gun
shot never entered his mind.
When Judge Wrk'ht descended to tho
dining-room he met Sir. Frunsioli, nnd in
nocently impiired after the prowlers who
hud thrown a stone or brick through his
window tho night before Tho inquiry
was supplemented by an injunction to
huve that window fixed before night, as
he didu't waul to huvo a cold draught on
him nil night
The proprietor remembered the Light of
tho window iu question, and wondered
w hut malady had seized him to bring such
a report However, hu said nothing, hut
promised to huvo the window repaired,
ltcfnre noou the chambermaid con firmed
llm Judge's report of a disturbance, but
added tlio thrilling information that it wns
a pistol shot instead of a stono or brick.
Mr. Franiioll repaired to tlio Mom, und
found that (t was even so. Tho ball had
smoothly cut its way through (lie window,
posted throuuh the walnut headboard of
thu bud, within two inches of the Judge's
head, and buried itncli in the wall bevond.
The Ilea. 1 hoard was budly splintered, but
on tho sidu next the wall, uud thu hole
ma.lo in entering wus concealed by a pil
low, hence escaped attention iu thu morn
ing. Thu proprietor dug thu hall from ita
hiding place, uud discovered it to bo from
a 3S calllsT Pistol.
When Judge Wright went to dinner, Mr.
Frunsioli asked him if ho had any enemies
about the city.
"None thai I know of," replied the
Judge; "why do you a.-k?"
"That was not a stone or brick," wot
the reply, "hut a pistol shot that awoke
you last night .Moro than that, it didu't
uiis your brad more than two Inches."
Judge Wright has seen a little service
in w,ar, ha smelled powder nnd heard the
shot w histle their re-s'cts to his ears, but
this revelation caused him to shudder.
An examination of tho surroundings and
circuinsiances lollowed. J he room Is
rear one w ith but one door mi l w indow,
aud only the shadow of a sible entrance
from the outside of the building. Across
the wall was a painter's ladder or sratiold,
