Emanation.— A Metallic Globe with
a Kock Crust. — Miniature Boom
erangs.—A Foul-air Alarm. — High
Life.— Air Sounds in Water.—Color
ed Light and Visibility.
From an experience of two years
and a review of medical literature,
Dr. Metzenbaum classes radium with
the Finsen light, X-rays and surgery
in the treatment of lupus, and with
surgery and the X-rays in the treat
ment of rodent ulcer and small sur
face cancers. In these cases, healing
is rapid and apparently permanent,
while tbe beneficial effects ot radium
are obtained from tubes of low activ
ity, costing but a few dollars. Deep
seated malignant growths seem beyond
tbe influence of radium rays, and the
expected benefit in blindness has not
been realized, while radium cannot
t&ke the place of X-rays for skiagraphs
on account of the length of exposure
necessary and the irritation that
would result. Kadium has some effect
in making ulcer scars smooth, pliable
and bealtby in appearance.
The Craveri method of preserving
meat lately found by Italian experts
to promise advantages over all other
processes, consists in draining tbe
veins of the slaughtered animals, and
then injecting a solution of 100 parts
ot water, 25 ot kitchen salt and 4 of
acetic acid to the amount of one
tenth of tbe living weight. In tbe
Turin tests, a treated sheep and calf
were hung for 75 days in a cellar at
til degrees F. They were then skinu
ed, dressed and cut up, when tbe
dean was found fresh in appearance
with no trace of putrefaction, and
proved to be tender, unusually well
flavored, digestible and nutritious.
From observations on Mont .Blanc
and recent discoveries in physics, A.
Hausky has concluded that tbe solar
corona, zodiacal light and aurora
boreaiis are all electrical phenomena,
and are due to negatively charged
particles detached from tbe sun and
repelled by tbe pressure of light with
a velocity of several thousand miles
Our conception of the earth's inter
ior is being gradually transformed by
the discoveries in radioactivity.
Radium or radioactive substance has
been found in all igneous rocks, but
is most in evidence in granites and
least so in basic rocks. That it is
the cause of the earth's internal heat
is an idea that is gaining ground.
The distribution of radium is fairly
uniform, and this gives basis for
calculations showing that tbe earth's
orust cannot be much more than 45
miles deep, as otherwise the outflow
of heat would be greater than is ob
served, and for the conclusion that
the interior— comparatively cold in
stead of a molten mass — must be ot
some totally different material. The
last result agrees with that reached
by Prof. Milne from the velocity ot
earthquake travel through tbe inter
ior. The moon probably consists
mostly of rock, with an internal tem
perature much greater than that of
the earth, and this explains tbe groat
development of lunar volcanoes.
Iron meteorites contain little radium.
The flight of boomerangs is illu
strated by L. Pfaunder, a German
lecturer, by means of various shaped
little models, from 2 to 4 inches long.
These are cut from aluminum toil a
fiftieth of an inch thick, and they are
hammered convex on one tbe concave
edge to the front, one end projecting
over tbe side of tbe table almost on a
level with the top of a flat vertical
spring. The spring drives the boome
rangs forward aud upward G or 8
yards, and then the bit of metal
returns and falls near its starting
Contaminated air is drawn from a
room through a stove or flue by rea
son of the lower atmospheric pressure
lo detect when tbe ventillation is not
'properly continuing, an Italian,
SigDor Bertini, has devisd an instru
ment called tbe noseroscope, which
rings an alarm-bell when the dimin
ished pressure disappears. This gives
due notice that foul air must be
collecting in the room.
Tbe highest dwelling place continu
ously occupied, according to Dr.
Leonard Hill's new work on progress
in physiology, is the Xl Misti Obser
vatory in tbe Andes, at 19,270 feet.
The observatory of Arequipa is at
22,660 leet above sea-level. Thok
djalung is a village in tbe Himalayas
at 15,335 feet. In Peru, Bolivia and
northern Chile, a very large part of
the population live above 10,000 feet.
Potosi, which has numbered 100,000
inhabitants, is at 13,660 feet; Cerro
de Pasco at 14,270 feet; while the
railway from Callao to Oroya cul
minates in a tunnel at 16,510 feet,
almost the height of Mont Blanc.
Such works are evidence of man's
activity atueights of 2 l 2 to 3 miles.
Jourdanet says the inhabitants of tbe
high altitudes in America are anaemic
and of poor physique, and Mosso says
tbe same of tbe shepherds of the high
Alps. This is probably an effect ot
poor food rather than ot lessened air
pressure. It is said that no cats livo
above 11,500 feet. They sicken iv the

Dr. C. H. Gibbons
After several years of "strenuous
life" in the interior, I welcomed a
sojourn in Seward as -a release from
the hardships of long trips on foot.
Shortly after ruy arrival the U. S.
marshal and district attorney asked
me to go to Sunrise with them, about
ninety miles north of here, to give
expert testimony in a murder case.
We left Seward before daylight iv the
caboose uf a construction train, and
in a little less than two hours alight
ed at a' tie camp on Mile 34. Here we
bad a good breakfast, in a tent where
tables were set for about seventy men
three times a day. Leaving the rail
road we " hit the trail"— seven of us.
First across the creek on a log, then
up a steep hill, and for eight miles
through a heavy forest, sometimes de
scending but usually climbing along
tbe path ot an old glacier, with snow
capped peaks on either band. Above
the timber line tbe trail skirted tbe
shore of two hikes, each about a mile
across. We were now at tbe summit
of Kenai peninsula on the watershed
between Cook's inlet and Resurrec
tion bay. The scenery has the rugged,
rocky grandeur peculiar to the coast
of southern Alaska, but is not so im
mense as that further east. From the
northward a frequent roar as of "heavy
attillery told where the railway pio
neers were smiting the ledges with
dynamite to open tbe way to the won
ders and riches of the interior.
Wow we went down a canon, follow
ing a dizzy and dangerous trail, often
along ledges hundreds of feet above
the boiling, roaring creek, and a much
greater distance below tbe glistening
Kenai Deaks. Sixteen miles and five
hours from the railroad we stopped at
an unoccupied cabin to rest and have
a lunch of coffee, meat and bread.
Our district attorney, age 30, weight
220 ponnds, a new arrival in Alaska,
had expressed his fears the previous
evening that 1 could not stand the
trip. My " innings" came when we
were again on tbe way, for our legal
light began to fail, and the nine miles
we traveled that afternoon were a de
cided weariness to his flesh, although
he was a Yale man and claimed to be
We passed the night in another
empty cabin. Its one small bed we
awarded to the invalid, while the rest
of us enjoyed the soft side of the
spruce floor. Next morning our law
twister declared he was unable to rise
and should wait there until a horse
could be sent for him. 1 massaged bis
stiffened muscles until he agreed to
try it once more. We only came six
miles that forenoon to a road house,
where we got an excellent meal. An
Indian going to town had taken a mes
sage to send a horse to this place tor
the cripple. The rest of us followed
the very good trail dbwn the valley,
which is from one to two miles wide,
passing several tine farms, where hay
and vegetables are raised in abund
dance. Ten miles brought us to Sun
rise—one of the o'dest mining towns
in Alaska — in time for supper. The
disciple of Blackstone arrived on
horseback about midnight. As this is
a high class paper, I will not venture
to describe his language or condition.
Last summer the bast mine near
Sunrise produced over SBO a day to
each man employed. We had good
meals and beds. Tbe trial kept us a
week, but 1 enjoyed tbe experience.
Some twenty families are at Sunrise;
also a U. S. Commissioner, two large
mercantile establishments, two hotels,
two saloons, and a pack train of twen
ty-two horses to cairy supplies to
the miners. Sunrise is on the south
ern shore of Turnsgain arm, which is
a part of Cook's inlet. Small steam
ers carry supplies from Seldovia about
seven months in the year to half a
dozen small towns along tbe inlet and
Tbe main object ot interest here is
tbe tide,wbicb is the highest in North
America, except the bay of Fuudy.
Tbe highest is 52 feet, tbe average
about 45. 1 went down the lagoons
to the shore twice to see tbe tide
come in. Miles down tbe arm a white
line could be seen approaching at the
rate ot some eight miles an hour.
As it came nearer, this line proved to
be a nearly perpendicular wall of
water, about six feet bigb. This is
called the 'bore,' aud sweeps by witli
a roar like Niagira. After this the
rise is gradual, and iv six hours the
water is forty feet higher thau at low
tide. The ebbing ot course is gradual.
Many drowuinga have occurred by
small boats boiug overturned by tbe
"bore." The reaaou given for this
high tide is that tbe ocean pours into
the arm through several channels. It
seems strange, for tbe tide along the
coast here is only 17 feet, at San
Francisco 6 and at Honolulu but a
few inches. I was excused ten days
before the trial ended. Came alone
to the cabin, where we ate our first
dinner. With a stove and an old piece
of canvas 1 made myself very comfort
able, and started over tbe pass before
daylight in the rain, reaching Mile 34
two hours before the construction
train passed, so 1 had time to get dry
and enjoy a good lunch. Next day
a snowstorm came on, and tbe rest of
the crowd bad to bieak a trail through
fourteen inches of fleecy white. The
district attorney gave out at the cabin
near the summit, and waited three
days on short rations until a horse
could be taken over the trail to bring
him to the railroad.
THE LEDOUX CASE.
from June 14 to 17.
Mrs Le Doux was in constant com
munication with her attorneys during
tbe labors of the day. Her time was
taken up in comparing the testimony
of witnesses with tbe actual facts as
she knew them, and sbe advised her
attorneys at aIJ times that they might
be able to intelligently cross-examine.
She is very cool and self-composed,
and does not seem to fear or to be
attected by testimony along general
lines. An examination of the blood
stained trunk or an exhibition of dis
colored and wrinkled clothes alone
cause her distress.
The physical exhibits in the case
are many and with eaoh succeeding
day are speedily increasing. Around
the tables occupied by the attorneys
for tbe prosecution have been at
different times the trunk, the tray,
rope, clothes of the deceased and
articles found in the trunk. A suit
case and a hammer; a knife, wrapping
paper, string, watoh, bottlas, beef,
iron and wine, clothes of Mrs Lie
Doux, portions of MoVicar's organs
in bottles, hotel registers, poisons of
various kinds, results of chemical
tests and a number of diagrams are
all in evidence and before the jury.
Deputy Sheriff C. C. Case, who con
duoted Mrs Le Doux from Antioch,
where she had been arrested, to the
Stockton jail, was called as a witness.
Mrs Le Doux told the officer that
Miller and McVicar were friends,
and upon the night of March 24th
they had been together, had beeD
drinking and were discussiug gambl
ing. About 12:30 o'clock they re
turned to room 97 in the California
lodging bouse on the night of March
24th and were talking angrily. She
left the room for about ten minutes,
and upon returning she found Mc-
Vicar by the side ot the bed with his
coat off, vomiting. Miller said be
had taken poison. Her hamper, which
was in the room, had been opened
and the contents .scattered upon the
floor, while a bottle ot carbolic acid
was upon the bureau with a portion
of its contents gone. Mrs Le Doux
said she was greatly excited and asked
Miller what she should do. He told
her to keep hor mouth shut. Alter
further* conversation with Miller, ne
told her to get a trunk and rope, put
the body of McVicar in it and send
it to San Francisco and store it there
for a year. She said he put the body
in tbe trunk after she had purchased
it, according to his directions. He
directed her to say nothing of what
bad transpired and with a knife
sharpened upon both sides and a six
shooter in hs hand he said he would
kill her if sbe did. Miller gave hei
$10, to buy the trunk and money to
buy clothes, which she subsequently
bought at the The Wonder in this
Charles Newman, said he occupied
room 89 at the California lodging
bouse on the night of Saturday, March
24tb, be heard no unusual sounds in
room 97, adjouning him.
J. W. Tucker, clerk in the Arling
ton hotel, at Antiocb, said that on
the evening of Sunday, March 25th, a
woman in appearance tbe same as
Mrs Le Doux arrived on the 6:20
train from San Francisco and regis
tered at the hotel as Mrs Jones and
was assigned to room 19, and that no
person came to the hotel with her.
John H. Wbelibam, deputy con
stable at Antiocb, said be located
Mrs Le Doux in the parlor of tbe Ar
lington hotel and arrested her. He
said that when he informed her of his
intentions she said, "If you want
me, I'm here."
T. P. Shine, city marshal at An
tioch, said he saw Mrs Le Doux in
the parlor ot tbe Arlington hotel and
that when be told ber she was under
arrest she said she knew wbut the
trouble was but bad nothing to tear.
He walked about the town with ber
and she told him of tbe facts in the
caso, much as they have developed su
tar in tbe trial. Sbe told him about
her connection with the trunk, Me-
Vioar and Joe Miller. She saw her
picture in a San Francisco paper and
wanted to know bow it came there.
Sbe asked permission to telephone to
Jackson, that sbe might get into com
munication with attorney Charles
Crocker and her mother. The mar
shal identified a watch, key and a
knife found in the hamper of Mrs La
Doux, also a bottle with some liquid
in it matked "Carbolic Acid. Poi
son," also found in ber hamper. Sbe
said Miller came as far as Point
Uicbmoud with ber on her trip to An
tioch. He also found 94 in ber purse.
Judge Sullivan of Nebraska was a
witness and identified A. .\ McVicar's
signature to tbe marriage certificate.
The deceased was bis nephew.
Mrs Van Landingbam testified that
on Saturday, March 24tb, near mid
night, while in her room in the Cali
fornia hotel, she heard a sound as
though something heavy had fallen in
room 97, and a further sound as it
from moving furniture. She heard
no other unusual noises.
One interesting witness was Mrs
Jennie Hoffman, who lives at the
Hawbide mine, where sbe is engaged
in waiting upon a table. This wit
ness remembered Mrs Le Doux being
at the mine in March with A. N. Mc-
Vicar, who introduced her as his wife.
She said they occupied apartments
together for four days. On Wednes
day, the day before the accused and
deceased left the mine, she came to
the room of the witness with an arm
ful ot letters tied in little bundles
and asked permission to burn them
in a stove in the room. Mrs Le Doux
said they were cumbersome, heavy
when paoked and she did not wish tn
carry them around. She explained
what reason was given for McVicar
leaving his employment in the mine.
It was because he was only getting 83
per day and be could earn more— s4
per day on the ranch owned by .his
mother in Jackson. She did not want
to go to housekeeping near the mine
for the reason the house they had in
tended to take was unclean and the
proprietor refused to fix it. Mrs
Hoffman said Mrs Le Doux told her
that she cared so much for McVicar
that should be die she would never
marry again. On one of the nights
before the acouscd and deceased left
tbe mine they were in a grill at the
hotel and there had liquors— the ac
aused and deceased whiskey each,
while Mrs Hoffman partook of beer.
Mrs Le Doux said something to the
witness about a large trunk which
she had in Stockton. The witness
identified tbo gray silk suit and a
green silk sblrt waist which she
wore on the night they had Jhe liquor.
Tbe suit case of McVioar found a* the
depot in this oity and tbe hamper of
tbe accused were also identified.
Joseph E. Healey, the San Fran
cisco plumber and business man, was
one ol the most important witnesses.
His testimony was interesting— it was
a story told by a man who felt he had
been wronged and it savored of venom
and prejudice throughout. This was
shown upon tbe cross-examination by
attorney Fairall. He was indignant
because bis name bad been "dragged
into the case." Yet there was a
stronger reason than this for flavor
ing his testimony with bitterness— an
engagement to marry, an exchange of
affection, a subsequent feud and a de
mand tor the return of a diamond
ring given by him to bis betrothed
at tbe time of their engagement.
Part of tbe time he spoke with his
eyes apparently closed as if either en
grossed in thought or else in tbe
effort to avoid tbe searching gaze of
tbe accused woman who sat before
On tbe evening of March 24tb Mr
Healey met Mrs Le Doux on the
corner of Market and Fifth streets,
in San Francisco by appointment
made by telegram. The message was
torn up and thrown away. Betore
meeting the accused Mr Healey went
to the Royal house, on Ellis street,
about 7:30 o'clock in evening,
and not finding ber there, looked
upon the register and in her band
writing caw the name, Mrs Emma T.
Williams, Stockton. After the meet
ing on the street they went to Wester
field's restaurant and there conversed
about the death of McVicar.
Mrs Le Doux said, "Poor Al is dead.
He died at Sonora of miners' con
sumptiun and died an easy death."
She showed tbe watch and chain in
troduced in evidence, which she said
MoVicar's brother, who was present
at bis death, insisted upon her taking.
There was also a trunk and valise at
the Southern Pacific depot in Stock
ton which she wanted the witness to
take charge of because she knew sbe
could trust him.
Cross-examination by attorney Fair
all showed that Mr Healey bad been
engaged to marry tbe accused and
that by reason of this, coupled with
other things, be was somewhat pre
judiced and felt that he had been
wronged. He said lie loaned Mrs
Le Doux's mother some $100 and
that it had never been returned to
him, although she had promised to
do so many times. He had been to
the home of the accused in Jackson
doing plumbing work in the nouse
while they were engaged to be
married. He said that he bad ob
tained the return of the diamond en
Three photographs of Eugene Le
Doux were also introduced in evi
dence by way of making au intro
duction to tbe establishment of the
motive which tbe prosecution claims
it would rely upon for a conviction.
During tbe day many witnesses
were called. Sheriff Sibley was re
called early in tbe morning session
and was shown tbe original marriage
certificate obtained by tbe accused
and McVicar in Bisbee, Arizona.
C. F. Hadsell of Woodland, county
clerk of Volo county, swore that the
defendant had secured from him on
August 26, 1905, a license to wed
Eugene Le Doux. He thereupon
identified the photographs of Le
Doux. The accused was 27 years of
age and Le Doux 30. He signed his
name with a mark. Mrs H. V. Sacry,
telegraph operator in the Stockton
office ot the Postal Telegraph Com
pany, praduced tbe telegram sent by
Mrs Le Doux to Joe Healey on March
24th. Tbe telegram read, "Leave on
4:20 train. Meet me at Royal bouse
on arrival. E. W. "
Saturday Frank Le Doux was sworn.
He was 19 years of age and a brother
to Eugene, husband of the accused.
He had known Mrs L« Doux for many
years— she lived at one time at bis
parents' borne with ber husband.
His brother was unable to read or
write— he was illiterate— and as a
consequence he was called upon to
read letters written by the accused
to ber husband while she lived apart
Letters were shown the witness and
identified by him as ones he read to
Jean Le Doux written by his wife,
tbe accused. The letters introduced
were of the ordinary style touching
upon facts of interest to the parties
and naturally containing many words
of endearment. Tbe first commenced
in this fashion: "Sweetheart: Well,
my dear—," and others shown to tbe
witness were similar in composition.
The "unwilling" absence of the
loving wife evidently made "the heart
grow fonder" and sbe soothed the
husband's ruffled spirits with a politic
and genteel application of terms of
Upon objeotion of attorney Fairall
one of the letters was kept from the
jury upon tbe ground it had been
written before marriage.
In the afternoon session a contro
versy arose between the attorneys for
the respective parties regarding the
identity of tbe signature attached to
a telegram purported to have been
made and signed by Mrs Le Doux.
Joseph E. Healey was called by the
district attorney to identify the sig
nature. He was handed tbe telegram
and asked if the signature was that
of the defendant. He thereupon took
from his pocket a small strip of paper
which evidently contained the name
of the accused written by herself and
made a comparison, after which he
said it was his belief that the sig
nature was that of Mrs Le Doux.
Attorney Fairall again examined
the witness as to whether or not he
was prejudiced against the defendant.
Here Healey said he was "a little put
out" aud further "1 am here for the
It appeared that Attorney Fairall
had spoken with Mr Healey and had
made an engagement with him at his
office in the evening. Healey agreed
to speak about tbe case with tbe attor
ney. Later in tbe day it developed
that district attorney Norton had seen
Healey and upon being advised of the
appointment with attorney Fairall he
advised Mr Healey not to speak with
him except upon tbe stand.
He soored tbe papers and said they
had done him an injustice in the
manner they had oonnected his name
with the defendant. The witness
bianohed out on a lengthy explana
tion of why he refused to keep bis
engagement with attorney Fairall.
Several telegrams purported to have
been sent by the accused to the de
ceased were introduced in evidence.
Witnesses from Sutter Creek and
Stockton identified tbe messages. One
of them was to McVicar and said,
"What is the matter. No mail."
F. W. Ely, manager of the John
Breuner Company, told of the trans
action between that company and tbe
defendant and A. N. McVicar regard
ing a bill of furniture amounting to
$121.65 which was purchased and or
dered shipped to Jamestown, but
which order was afterwards counter
Other witnesses were George A.
Atherton, Jennie Hoffman, Miss
Belle Quiuu, James Story, J. B.
Schonbotf, James H. Sharon, Jackson
Dennis and Harry Morris.
Of the proceedings Monday the San
