San Antonio, Tex., April 23. After
two days of rest in jail Harrt Albert
Newton of Vloksbnrjr, charged with
an attempt to assassiuate Baker Look
wood, was again out on trial In the
dlstrlot court room, Justice Horron
presiding. The long utraln and close
confinement Is beginning to tell on
the prisoner. He is a man oflron
nerve and for a week stood tho fire of
adverse testimony and tho gaze of COO
pairs of eyes, but now looks pale aud
wan and starts at every sound.
The meeting of the medical associa
tion and two or threo other attrac
tions in no way detraoted from tho
numbers of the crowd, which, as on
previous days, Alloa" the room to the
windows and made the atmosphere
unbearable. The prisoner's pretty
young wife ocoupied her accustomed
place by his side and glanced defiant
ly at the attorney for the state. It
was a very short session, being con
fined entirely to the testimony of T.
J. Powell, a chirographic expert,
brought forward by the defense. He
stated unhesitatingly the bogus letter
of introduction presented by the man
who shot Jiookwood was written by a
woman; and consequently was not
penned by Newton. Hb refused to
surrender his conviction, and under
heavy cross-examination stuck to bis
original statement. Tho court then
adjourned nutll to-morrow evening

but nothing was dono for several
months. Whon Bill Gaines went out
hunting one day and never returned,

the neighbors suspected foul play, and
Sunday night a mob went to the house
of the Hudsons, telling them thoy

Monk?! and Snaka
It is a curious fact that monkeys:
who have an intense instinctive dread
of snakes, would seem from experi
ments in zoological gardens to be
strangely attracted to them. An Amer
ican observer, A. & Brown, coiled a
dead 8iiako in a nowspaper, so as to. be
easily capablo of coming loose, and
set it on tlio floor of a cage containing
a grcut variety of monkeys. It was
instantly carried off by a leading
spirit, but in a few seconds the paper
beconio un folded and the snako was oxt
jwsed Tho monkey instantly dropp'!

look behind The other monkeys, per
ceiving tho snako. approached stop by
ttop mid formed a circle around it six
or eight feet in diameter. None ap
proached it oxcept one Macaque, who
cautiously mode some snatches at the
paper. At this moment a string which
had been attached to tho snake's tail
ttus gently pulled tho monkeys fled
precipitately, with great chafterhaf
mid screaming. Some time after they
