Jury in tlie Thomas Forni
cation Case Disagree.
STOOD 10 FOR ACQUITTAL
The Halphhs Adultery Oaso Prom Amer
ican Fork on Trial A Moat Pitiable
Case Indeed The Grand Jury, the Last
in This District Under Territorial Snle
A'ter the conclusion of the hearing
otthe Thomas fornication case last
evening Judge Rolapp concluded to
hold an evening session of court in
order to dispose of the Booth rape
case. The details were most revolting,
the man being verv drunk when he
committed his beastly crime. The jury
were out long enough only to cist one
ballot when they returned wi th a ver
dict of cuiltv.
A motion for a new trial of
the caee was niae. He insisted
that notwithstanding the fact he
pleaded fjuiity at the prallmmpry hear
ing Le ib not the party who d id the
deed. He esya he was very, very drunk
at the time and that on the way from
Payson to Salem a stranger was with
him from whom he got parted in Eome
unaccountable way and whom he haB
never seen since. Mrs. Bohi, alias
Frei, huwever is positiye in her Iden
tification of Booth a the man who
Btiuok her and otherwise maltreated
Booth was sentenced this afternoon
to seven yeais in the penitentiary.
This morning the juiy m the Thomas
fornication case who had been out all
night reported their failure to agrre
and wer6 discharged. They stood ten
for acquittal and two for conviction.
The caBe on trinl today is an adultery
case against Benjamin Ralphs
of American Fork. The co
respondent is Miss Teenie Duks,
it prepossessing girl, twenty-ono
years of age, refined, highly cultured
and well educated, who camea in her
arinB a 3-months-old babe as evidence
of her fall. She nlleRes that defendant
and herself kept company together for
months as lowrs.the understanding be
ing that they would wed when he could
procure a divorce fiom his wife, with
whom he was not living at the time.
Miss Duke loved Balphs with a devo
tion o'erinastorlajr. Thecase.is a most
Bad and piuiul one and its trial ia de
void of all that raw vulgarity that
usually characterizes cases of a similar
kind when tried in court. Miss Duk9,
upon the stand, is quite dramatic, her
voice is choked with Bobbing and her
eyes filled with bitter tears as Bbe tes
tifies. Many witneeseB will testify aB to
her good character. The defense will
undertake to prove that thiB prosecu
tion is vindictive and part of a plot of
revenge for Mies Duke's failure in an
alleged attempt to separate the object
of her illegitimate love from his lawful
wife. That she has made threats to do
this and has been a girl who has plied
her bewitching wiles on many a youth.
The case bids fair to occupy all the
day and a nightsession in its trial.
At 3 o'clock th is afternoon the grand
jury presented its final report and was

Strange to tell, the familiar term ol
Lent has nothing in its origin sighrficant
of fasting. It is derived irom the Saxor
term lengthen, tide or spring the
time when each successive day steals a
few minutes from its night. In English
literature we have repeated allusions to
Jack o' Lent, a sort of puppet, general
ly personated as a loan and ragged scare
crow, which boys jeered and threw
stones at, much as tho Guy Fawkes of
later days was treated"" "''

Late in February the Newfoundland
lealing steamers break through the ics
In St. John's haibor and make their
way to some northern outposts, lying
there tmtil Maroh 10, tho earliest date
on which the law allows them to "go
to the ice. " Thoy stand out to sea until
thoy meet the immense fields of ico
from the Arotio ocean. These fields are
often many square miles in extent and.
fairly teem with seals. A great seal
hunter told me that the sea seemed
uddenly converted into an ocean ol
seals and ice. Tho steamer breaks into
the jam and floats with it or skirt
along the edge, the crow, 200 or 800 in
number, taking to tho floating ice ac4
living there for days and nights.
The young seals fatten so rapidly that
sealers say yon can actually see them
grow while yon are looking at them.
The poor creatures are easily killed,
blow with the butt end of a gaff finish
ing them. The hunter then "sculps, w
or skins them, inserting a Bharp knife
tinder tho fat, and with marvelous dex
terity taking off tho "pelt" skin and
fat together in about a minute and a
half. A party of men will "pan" theis
pelts pile them up to tho number of
about 1,000 and thrust a gaff with the
ship's flag into tho pan. "When ther&
ore pans enough, the steamer breaks in
to tho ice and hauls them aboard with
a 4onkoy winch, or the men drag thera
o the vessel's side.
The Newfoundland seal hunters aL
ways speak of seals as "swiles," and
for our word carry thoy say "spell." A
eohoolmaster who had been listening to
a seal hunter's story said sneeringly:
'Swiles 1 How do you spell swilosr'
""We don't spell 'em," replied thl
hunter; "we most generally hauls
