"the wltnoss said. Tho cuts on Pearl Bryan's
hands wero found slightly open, and the pros

Tlngley, assert that this condition proved tho

object of Craw fold's cross-examination was to
"Doos the skin contract after death, causing
wounds to open" he asked.
"Yes," was tho answer.
"What Is tho effect of rlgoi mortis?"
"The muscles aro rendered tenso by rigor
mortis." said Dr, Jenkins.
He said that rigor mortis had passed off In
the caso of Pearl Dryan's body beforo tho au
topsy.and If rigor mortis had passed away there
could bo a retraction of tho skin Thcro aro
some circumstances, 03 poison action, excos

thero may bp other conditions, that
might cause suspension ot coagula

death. Tbo drugs aro chlorine and carbonic
acid. It Is an undccldod jjuostlon If chloro
form would causo a suspcnslpn of coagulation.
Cblorofvm kills' by paralyzing the heart. It
suspends tbo contraction of tbo smaller arter
ies and tissues. Dr. Jenkins said there was
possibly two pounds of blood in tho body when
the autopsies were made. This showed that
about eight pounds or pints bad flowed out.
On redirect examination Dr, Jenkins said
that In the autopsies no abnormal condition
of 'any part of the body was found. Np sign
of any disease that might retard the coagula
tion of the blood was found. An Incision In a
dead body may cause the wound to gape, but
not the skin, tho latter being the case In tho
wounds on Pearl Bryan's neok and band.
The doctor said that In tho autopsy no sign
ot any drug was found In the body that would
have a tendenoy to retnrd coagulation, but
chloroform evaporates very Quickly.
The prosecution said that Dr. F.W. Flshbaok
would be the last physician they would put on
the stand. He assisted In the autopsy on Pearl
Bryan's body. Tbo bead had evidently been
