They Bow the Shooting.
Testimony in the caso of Toliromnn W.
0. Hodrick, charged with murdering
Thomas Corcoran, at the raco track, last
April, was commenced before Judge Du
I'.uho and a jury iu tho Cr. initial Court
As given by .State's wilnosHes up to 1
o'clock p.m., tho hour of adjournment for
tho day, the sworn evidence wm as fol
lows: Ml. t. MILES WII.I.ETT,
testified: "I have been a practicing tihysi
ciitti for Ave years. 1 went lo school with
Tout Corcoran, the man killed by Hodrick.
1 was at the race track when he was shot.
and was culled upon to attend his wounds.
Ihn llrst injury 1 lounJ was a largo nolo
in the left ahdomeii made by u pistol.
Afterward, w hen Corcoran had liccn moved
from the raco truck, I found u pintol wound
iu his leg and one in bis arm. 1 did not
probe tho wounds because tho most neces-
rary thing was lo relieve him of tho shock,
winch, however, lie never recovered from.
The i ii j in it s in the arm and log were trivial.
Tlio one iu the abdomen umpiestionubly
e.iiised his death. Ho died at 8t. Joseph's
Hospital the day following the shooting.
Atlorney-tieneial I'eters at this point pre
sented the coal worn by Corcoran. I tlid
not see the shooting, being on the club
house veranda w hen il occurred."

After ho was pinioned the man that was

domiuio who picked up a ribbon garter
dropped by ono of his dock. He wroto on
it in a bold hand: "Lost by Fllio McDu-
gal, tho careless httssio," and luid it In a
book for snfo kcoping, intending to return
it publicly with a sevcro reprimind. Hut
ho forgot it nnd lined it for a book-murk
until some years after. When ho intro
duced Miss McDugul us the mistress of tho
manse she found out where her lost garter
had been birrying.
It is considered bad luck to lose a garter,
it lreing tho foreboding of a greater loss,
thut of a iwcelheart or friend. No purl of
a woman's dress is said to have such
power in changing lin k as her garters,
l'hey should never be left knotted together
or thrown carelessly olmul, either repre
