The Stato sitting ns a Court ot
Impeachment, Thuisday aftctnoon,
oted 27 to in to quash all articles
of impeachment against Lieutenant-!
(lovernor M. E. Trapp, with the ex
ception ot one article which had to
do with in official net of Mr. Trapp.
This article was dismissed on motion
oi Mr. Matthews, member of the
House Committee. i
The charges hi ought against Mr.
Trapp involved alleged transactions I
in bonds in Seminole, Adair and '
Creek Counties. Tho motion of the I
respondents to quash the articles of
impeachment was based upon the i
ground that an impeachment court I
did not have Jurisdiction to try Mr.
Tiapp in that If he had committed,
any act charged It must be a pri-j
Mite act and not involving his of.
flcial nets. I
The proposition is separated Into
"acts" and "otrenses" in the mling
or the court, it was held that what
was complained of were 'nets In
the private life or lmslnes or Mr.
Trapp. And that he must flist have
been conviclct of an orrense In an
other tiibunal; that such conviction
if anj w'ere had, would then be an
"offenso" over which the court of
impeachment could assume Juris
diction to determine it such offense
involved moral turpitude, or any of
renses tiiablo in court ot impeachment.

the statement, that women have more curiosity than any living
creature that ever walked the earth. But do you know it s get

who unfortunately lost a leg about 32 years ago. He says, "dur

the weather-beaten old veteran found himself cooped up in a

tobacco juice on his chin. Turning to the veteran the mere man

ly through curiosity, they hear about Albatross flour
everywhere, there's scarcely a man, woman, or child
in Bryan County who doesn't know about Albatross
flour. There is scarcely a meeting of any kind where
the subject of flour doesn't come up, the men talk, over
the dividing fence, while whittling on the street cor
ner, at the black-smith shop, on the market square and
every time the District Court meets, the sale of Alba
tross flour picks up wonderfully. When the men in
the Jury room grow tired of the maddening details of
the case under advisement, they talk a little about
home, and yellow Jersey butter and fluffy hot bis
cuits, as one prominent citizen said, you just simply
can't get away from it, a man would go raving mad from
curiosity if he didn't at least try Albatross flour. Gen
