BROUGHT TO END
The trial of criminal cages in the
circuit court for this term c:ne to an j
abrupt ending this morning with the
taking from the Jury of the George
Aznavorian manslaughter case and
the postponing until next term of the
charges s gainst Thomas Jeperson,
charged with burglary. Judge R. W. i
Olmsted at once took op civil work so
at, to keep busy the Jury which is on '
h8nd. Civil matters which have been
docketed for trial this week will coma
up early next week. i
The plea of self defense won liberty ;
for George Aznavorian, the East Mo-1
line Armenian, who was charged with
killing his fellow countryman, Tovmas
Avakian. The state put two witnesses ;
on the stand who related the detailB
of the fatal encounter. At the conclu
sion, the attorneys for the defendant j
R. R. Reynolds and W. C. Allen pre- !
Bfnvd a motion directing the jury to !
bring in a verdict for the defendant. 1
immediate argument on the motion
was heard by the court. Hon. William
McEniry, special prosecutor in the ,
case, claimed that the evidence show.
, eii that Aznavorian struck Avakian
with the chair without sufficient provo
cation and that the element of self
defense did not enter In. The court
took the matter under advisement and
this morning gave his ruling which
sustained the motion. The jury ac
cordingly found the defendant not
guilty and the court dismissed him.
The Thomas Jefferson caBe, in which
the defendant is charged with bur
glary, was called but Attorney Clyde
S. Walker asked time for a conference
with State's Attorney F. E. Thompson
and at Its conclusion, by mutual agree
ment, the case was allowed to go over
till next term. No reason other than
that the state's attorney has numer
ous cases to attend to in th county
court, was given.
Jefferson is the man alleged to have
broken into the J. Lee Crowder bank
in Silvis. robbed the vault and in
! Jured the banker to an extent that lat
er resulted in his death. He has been
held by the coroner for murder but
the grand jury has had no chance ye
t. indict him.
State's Attorney F. K. Thompson bus
rr.ade an enviable record during his
frst court term as prosecutor for the
county. Of the 17 cases tried. 14 re
sulted In convictions and only Three
were acquitted. Of those found guilty,
; nine were sent to the state peniten
tiary and the other fie were given
county Jail terms or fined.

Chief operators of the local district
of the Central I'nion Telephone com
pany will reconvene in this city April
L'l, for the purpose of holding a school
of instructions, at which time various
technical problems of ihe profession
wi'I be discussed. The operators
were in session but two days, the
first part of the week, when the illness
of some of the members in attend
ance, necessitated a postponement of
A report gained credence that the
meeting had been adjourned, in order
that the operators might rush to Bos
ton as strike breakers. This was
strenuously denied by A. J. Beverlin,
who stated that the report was ab
solutely without foundation. The
strike of the operators at Boston which
had been threatened for the last few
days, was averted by a compromise
agreement reached early today. In
stead of the weekly wage increases,
averaging fl each, which the union
demanded, the agreement provides Jt
the establishment by tne company of
a plan of anniversary payments.
These payments are to be $25 at the
end of the second year; $50 annually
from the end of the third to the end
of the ninth year, and $100 at the end
of each succeeding year. The agree
ment also provides for the creation
of an adjustment committee to con
sider all grievances. The compromise
is considered in the light of a victory
by the operators, 2,200 of whom were

;ilie hired man was sent after him and
found the bodies. Dunn's hands were
in his trousers pockets.

at the home of her daughter, Mrs.

THE floors and doors appear to wait until the dust srms con
gregate ; the housewife hails each dawning day with grim and
harrowing dismay. Says she : "My work will NEVER end;
o'er dusty stretches I must bend, until, with aching back and hands
I finish what the day demands."
Then Mrs. Jones, one afternoon, drop
ped in, at time most opportune. An
optimist, she knew the wiles of house
hold work its sighs and smiles. She
told of how she polished floors and wood
work and the endless doors, until when Hubby saw them, too,
reflections said: "Why, howdy-do!"
"The Gold Dust Twins." said she, "I find, help leave the woes
of dust behind. Each mark of sticky hands on doors, each tread of
muddy feet on floors, all fade before
the slightest touch of Gold Dust, and
the work is such that, when the
woodwork has been done, I find
said work was only fun." This
line of reasoning must show that
those who've tried it OUGHT to
know. If you, in one day's duties,
find that there's a Grouch in ev'ry
Grind, invite the Gold Dust Twins
to share such task3 as tire and
fret and wear.
From kitchen floor to bedroom suite, these tireless little chaps make
oeat, and best of all, the sum expense is msasured up in meager cents.
They put both dust and dirt to rout and run the last old microbe out.
