T3EFKNKH CLAIMS IMl'AIKKD
In ii word ho tried to logically
and reasonably bring the Jury
to believe that Van Horn had com
mitted a foolhardy act in playfully
drawing his razor across Mrs. Wes
cott's throat; that ills foolhardlness
was attiibutable to his Impaired
mentality, which In turn resulted from
the injury to his head.
Mr. Wedennin spoke nearly thiee
hours and held the closest attention of
everyone in the crowded court room
by his clear, concise and easy style.

commonwealth He went over the evi

as he woul-1 have the Jurors see It.

"highly improbable" theory of the de

J1TJGI5 AKCHBALIVS CHAKCiE.
Judge Archibald's charge was not
such as would tend to raise much hope
in the defendant's breast. After giv
ing th'. customary general instructions
he went on to say that In inanv os
pects the case wr.s the most serious he
had ever tried. Then he launched out
and plainly told tho jury that the ques
tion of Insanity in his judgment did
not enter into the case. The testimony
that had been adduced to support this
contention was insufficient and what
had been put forward was far from be
In his judgment the case turned not
on the defendant's mental responsibil
ity, hut on th- question us to whether
or not It was an accidental or wilful
One of (he most natural things grow
ing out of the relations of lover and
mistress is lealousy. It Is tho most
free and easy of social relations and
for that reason it Is not dllllcult for
one party or the other to shift his or
her 'affections and attentions. It is a.
common experience for a rejected lover
to murder his mistress and vice viri.
In tho opinion of Judge Ach'bald the
relations between Van Horn and Mrs.
Wtweott. upon which the defense laid
so much stress tended to mere easllv
make apparent a motive for crime.
As to the threats, the judge thought
it not so highly preposterous as the
deteiihe maintained, for a man In tho
position Van Horn Is alleged to have
beer, to gc about declaring his Inten
tion of venting his jealous rage. Uvwi
though it is the height of iollv, his
honor reasoned, the passion in some
times so stronir that It bursts forth
from the restraining bond's of n ason
and judement and exercises Its desire
to unburden Itself In expression.

Tho story of the rommonwealths
witnesses as to the immediate circum
stances attending tho commission 01
the deed contained no contradictions
or inconsistencies. This, the Judge
stated Impressively and emphatically
as if he would have the Jury under
stand unequivocally his view of that
portion of the case. As to Van Horn's
alleged confession the Judge made
this comment: That the prisoner's own
story on the witness stand was with
this one exception Identical, substan
tially speaking, with what Leutenatit
Davis and Detective Molr testified h
Then refenng to Van Horn's story
of the killing, lie said: Is It a credit-abli-
story? Does It invito your be

tions you must ask yourselves In pass

Judge and this be contended might
fairly lie considered In connection
with the testimony of the defense f.

habit of playfully drawing his razor
across Mrs. Weseott's throat.

There could be but two reasonable
verdicts, he emphatically told the Jury
us he was submitting the raise. It
was either an accident, In which case
the defendant should be allowed to
walk out of the court room a free man,
or a wilful, deliberate and premeditat
ed murder, for which he should suffer
the penalty the ltiw Imposes.
THI-: VOICE FltOM THE ClttAVK.
In concluding he cnlled attention to
"the voice from the grave" ns he term
ed It Mrs. Weseott's own character
ization of the deed. It was not "I
have been cut" or "l have been klll-
i ed," but "I have been murdered."
Sympathy should not sway them, he
told the Jury in the deliberations. If
you find that he committed a murder
you should remember he had no sym
pathy on her.
Twenty law points submitted by th
defense were presented In their ap
propriate connection in the charge.
The Jurv retired at 6.15 o'clock, but
did not enter upon the discussion of the
case until after they had supper. Court
remained In session until nine o'cloeK
but nothing was heard from the jury
room up to that hour.

Van Horn case, will go Into No. 2 foi
the remainder of the week.
The Abbate murder case was sched
uled to come up yesterday, but owing
to the Van Horn trial lopping over In
to this week, It went over until today.
It Is passible, and In fact quite like
ly, that the session will be spated the
ordeal of a second murder trial. Ab
bnte's attorneys, John 1 Scragg and
John M. Harris, yesterday made an
effer on part of their client to plead
guilty of murder In tho second degree.
District Attorney Jones would not ac-ci-i't
the plea, insisting that tho de
fendant could only enter a general plea
of guiltv and that court should after-
wards fix the degree of tho crime.

WHAT IS LIFE?
K Discovery by Prof, Gates, of
Washington, Which Answers
An Interesting Subject
"What Is life," This question hus
been oskel during all ages, but It has
never until now been successfully an
swered. Professor Klmer dates , of
Washington, who h'as been making
Itreat experiments with the mlctoscope,
has made virtually, a double micros
cope; in other words, ho brings the
linage or the first microscope on the
l'jf.s, which picture on the lens Is en
larged by the second microscope so
that many things which It Is impossible
to see with' an ordinary ml'-roscope are
revealed. In this way he Is able to
see th" smallest cells of the body In
an exceedingly large foim. He ayr:
Cut a piece of protoplasm Into a num
ber of pieces and each piece will still
be alive." thus proving that the germs
of llle exist In even the minutest par
ticle of the body.
1'ut ho goes farther and says that In
believes mind is life, nml that mind Is
present In every particle of the body.
This Is a new a startling a wonderful
theory and It may lead to a revolution
on the siibj.-cts of dlseisc, health and of
happiness. it explains clearly otic
thing and that Is, why the mind Is fre
quently affected whin the body Is dls
ordeicd, and it brings home the ques
tion of health or disease very forcibly.
It becomes plain that In ord"i- !
hav- a ch-.ir head and a strong mind,
one must Inve a body that Is in perfect
condition. When th" body Is deranged
the mind i-nunnt work rightly. With
pulns In tbe back, nausea, weariness,
bearing down sensations and all tho
symptoms Indicating a weakened icin
dttioit of the kidneys and urinary or
rans, there Is certain to be a clouding
of tho intellect which calls for imme
diate action. This action can only be
successfully taken bv using some great,
modern discovery that Is certain to
put the i el! tissues In peifcct shape.
Tnore Is such a discovery and it is do
ing more to counteract pain and cstab
tabllsh health than anything known t
modern times. In s'leaklntr of it Di.

says: "1 emphatically slate that I havo

Clint1, dean of the I'nltt-d States Medi

Warner's Safe Cure in both acute and

is never to speculate in merchandise. When our buyers strike a particularly
rare bargain, we pass the benefit on to our customers. Not a penny is ever
added to price because goods are worth more than our cost. The Wanamalcer
History Club illustrates this. By undertaking to sell One Hundred and
Fifty Thousand Dollars' worth of Ridpath's History of the World we secured
an entire edition at unheard-of figures.
This history has never been sold for less than $48 to $175 per set, accord
ing to binding. Over 50,000 sets have been sold at these prices. Would
50,000 people pay more than worth ? A very slight reduction would have
sold out the entire edition -in our two stores but our policy Cuts the Price
in Half. Nor is this all to make this entertaining and educational work
available to everyone that cares to know the characteristics and achievements
of the men and nations who have made the world what it is today, we have

the zuhole eight-volume set in any binding is delivered at oner, 3'ou agreeing to
