trial all the week is getting warmer. Ex
tremely hot weather will make a crowded

wards announced that there were several
men in the room whom the defence wouid
probably call as wimeses. Hc thought
they ought to be excluded. Their names
were A. S. Barlow, John Wilson and
Chester Hundley. Sheriff EcUvarus or?
dered thefn to retire from the room.
George H. Warren, who said he lived
near Fergusson's Wharf, little over half a
mile from the deceased's home, was sworn
He said most of the deceased's property
was in Isle of Wight county. He heard
of the shooting at 10:20 o'clock on the
night it was done. He hurried to the
scene and found Mrs. Turner and Miss
Isabeila in great distress. He saw a lan
tern. The deceased was lying flat on his
back, the face turned a little to one side.
It looked like the shot made ja. ragged
wound. He said Mr. Turner's right hand
was by his side, the left hand across the
breast. The left leg was siretehed ou.t
stralght and the right leg was drawn up.
The head was jammed between a post
and a board.
MR. TURNER'S GUN.
Witness said he told Mr. Howle to gp
and look for Mr. Turner's gun. Tne
shotguns and pistols were both found in
their places. They looked for tracks in
tha snow, and were directed by Miss
Turner; One of the tracks was made by
a pointed shoe and one by a round-toed
shoe. That brought up the question of io
catlng the tracks, and the diagram^ was
suggested. The using ot" the diagram was
opposed by the defence, on the ground
that it wouid reiresh the witness' memo

Witness said he went to the garden

Turner. Cjtton was also with him.
While on the way they saw the same
tracks near Randolph's farm that were
found' near the murder scene. Judge
Hinton warned the witness about the im
portance of his answers, as a man's life
was at stake.
Mr. Holland got up, apparently indig
nant. He said he had stood this thing
long enough. He said a witness did' not
come into court as a footbail; that he
had as much right in court as Judge
Histon; that the attorney had no right
to take the humblest witness and say he
lied. Judge Hinton d'isclaimed that he
had said or meant the witness had lied.

DEAD MAN'S GARMENTS.
Judge Hinton asked for Johnson to put
on the deceased's coat again. The - its
had bsen made to get the coat off Mr.
Turner, that the wound' was very ragged,
and more so on the left side, the head
was nearly severed from the body.
Thomas Turner, a brother of C. Beverly
Turner, was sworn. He corroborated
other witnesses about ? fmding the dead"
body. He said the head and 'one foot
were against the fence. The body was
lying at the fourth post from the stable.
He told about tracks in the back vard".
W. E. Howie, a census enumerator,
took the witness chair. He was in bed
when told about the killing. Witness
said the mate to the glove pn the dead
man's right hand was found in the house.
He went after the cot and" told other
things which had already been said.
Judge Hinton asked if Mrs. Turner told
witnesses who killed her husband.
A HOT TILT.
Mr. Holland' objected, and a hot tilt
followed. Colonel- Boykin got up and said
to Judge Hinton during the course of
argument: "You may smile and smlle,
and you're most wicked when you do."
Judge Atkinson ruled out the question,
and the defence accepted. He said he
never knew of a court before who did
not want a lawyer to do his duty. He
told the court ,the court had used a word
that did not exist. Mr. Holland' had
some sarcastic commqnts. Judge Hinton
said he never knew of a court clerk that
wouid not take down exceptions. Clerk
Young replied that he made so many
he could not keep up. Judge Hinton
said he had fallen among queer people.
It was finally agreed to let the defence
copy the exceptions and hand them to
the "clerk. Judge Hinton said he hated" to
see the rules of law perverted; he could
not help it.
MRS. TURNER'S STATEMENT.
The jury was sent out and witness was
asked the same question. He replied:
"Mrs. Turner told us Mr. Turner did not
eommit suicide. She said 'he was mur
dered and we know who did it, Nick did
it; for God's sak.2 don't mention it."
Judge Hinton objected to the procedure.

An Unpublished Poem by \V hit tier.
Tiie Boston Transcript recently printed
the following poem by Wbitti.r, which has
never been inciuded in any edition of his
works. It was published criginally in the
Essex Gazette on September Sth, 1S27,
when Whittier was 20 years oid. His tirst
contribution to the press appeared in the
preceding year, so that this poem mast
be classed with his earliest work, much
of which bore the signature of "Adrian,"
appended to this poem:
Pericles at ihe liier of His Son.
"Pericles at the funeral of his son did
his utmost to perserve his usual tranquili
ty and not show any outward symptons
of sorrow. But when he was to put the
crown of flowers on the head of his dead
sun he could nat stitle the transiiorts of
his grief, which forced its way in cries,
in so'os and a lloud of tears."?Rallin.
"Stand back! stand back; ya mourncrs
The father of the -lead
Comes up the long resounding hall
With slow and solemn tread.
There's gloom upon his lofty brow,
Taere's sadness in his eye,
But a hero's pride hath nerved him now
With strength that cannot die.
He will not weep, as ye have we;pt,
But calmly gazed upon
The funeral shroud ye have darkly wrapt
Around his noble scn."
Slow through the crowd the warrior passed
To wiiere his son was> iaid.
He raised the covering pall and east
His deep glance on the dead.
He saw the cold similitude,
The fizedness of brow:
He gazed?a hero's hardihood ,
Could not avail him now.
He gazed?the brig'.it-eyed boy that piayed
Tn chiidhood at his knre,
Tho proud and high-souled youth that
His age from sadness free,
Lay cold and silent?not a trace
Of life was lingering there;
And as the father knelt to place
Around his son's dark hair
The wreath of flowers that gentle hands
Had g-athered for the dead,
Then e'en amid his armsd bands
Affection's tear waa shed.
Tlie stemness of a. hero's pride, '
A sternness nursed for years,
Was powerful; but it could not hide
Tha thronging gush of tears.
He -wept?the strong man ibowed his head
To agony's control.
The mamory of the past had shed
Its blighting in bis soul.
Xor deem it an ignoble part,
By that worn father shown,
"Thr.t pride was banished from his heart,
And. nature ruled alone,
'Twas nature's high and holy clalm
. Upon his tendemess.
Should warrior pride. should dread of
That feeling e'er suppress? ?Adrian.
