and place cards maTked each guest's
place at table.

called in a physician to set the broken
ifeone and were arranging to take the
man to the Infirmary. The man was
a good actor, but forgot for a moment
what he wxs doing and moved his leg
without any evidences of pain.
Sunday night shortly after 8 o'clock,
resldlnceson East South street tele,
.phoned the police tiiat adrunken man
was disturbing them. Marshal Mc
Cormick went down and found the
man on the porch of the residence of
Charles Couard. The man gave the
name of Ciaarles Moore and stated that
his home was Dayton. He said that
he had fallen and broken one of his
legs. He was apparently suffering
great pain, screaming wheneve r
moved. The Marshal secured aid and
took him to the 01 ty Building and a
physlcan was called .to examine him.
The man said he liad a sister living in
Dayton and the Marshal teleplionid
there and found tfiis was true, but
that she wao very poor and could not
care for Idea if he was .taken there.
The Marshal then called up the In
firmary and was arranging for Super
intendent Hogsett Co come in and
take the maa out tiiere. While he
was talking, Moore forgot the game he
was playing and rolled over and
stretched the supposedly broken leg
without any Indications of pain.
Policeman Walter saw him do this
and told McCormick About It Mr.
Hogsett was told he was not needed
and It was not tenderly that the of
ficials took Moore into the cell.

time. The olllcials claim that it was
on account of the appearance of this
leg that Moore was able to fool them.
Judge Newby overruled the motion
and set the case for trial on March 17.
Powell claimed that he could not se
cure a jury in this county that would
give him a fair and impartial trial and
submitted a number of allldavits by
Greenfield citizens to support his
claim. Prosecuting Attorney McBride
argued that there would be no trouble
to secure a jury and submitted alllda
vits to support his assertions. Powell
has been in trouble many times, 1
always charged with violating the lo
cal option laws The present case
arises out of a rahl made on his place
by Marshall Willis and the police of
Greenfield, when It is alleged that
Powell threatened to strike Marshall
Willis with a hatchet. In a previous
trial of the case Powell was convicted
of assault with intent to kill, but the
Circuit Court reversed the verdict on
the ground of error In the charge of
Judge Newby to the Jury.
