Try a State Journal Want. In a verdict read in Judge Whit comb's court today, the Jury in the Kelly bond case found for the defend ants and exonerated the bond brokers of any -wrong doing in their transac tion involving the sale of Missouri Pa cific bonds owned bv Shawnee county. The trial of the Kelly case has oc cupied the attention of the court for several days.. The action resulted from the sale of 750 shares of Missouri Pacific bonds . through, the Kelly agency. For -this collateral, which the jury found . was .- valueless until the brokers appeared, the county received J40,000. or 40 per cent of the face value of the stock. Of this amount $7,500 was paid as commission to the firm of Kelly & Kelly. Subsequent to the transaction, suit was filed against Kelly & Kelly, the Bank of Topeka and Johrn R. Mulvane in yhich the county sought to recover the commission and an additional judgment from thj brokers equal to 60 per cent of the par value of the stock. In the trial of the case, de murrers as affecting Mulvane and the bank were sustained and the county went to the jury asking only for the recovery of the commission. No argu ment was advanced by the county that the brokers should pay the possible or speculative value of the stock at the time tha transfer was made. In their answers to nearly 73 special questions, the jury found these facto: That the stock had no market value at the time the offer of sale was made to the county commissioners. That the only offer of sale prior to the Kel'y contract in-April, 1909. was for 20 cents and for this reason the price secured by the defendants was not only fair and just, but was the highest price received by any county, township or municipal ity at the time of the sale. It was further found that the county board was satisfied with the sale price, made expressions to this effect and did not protest the payment of the commission under the terms of the contract. As -o the practice of fraud or deception on the part of the brokers, the jury stated that Kelly & Kelly had used fair means and exercised professional methods to determine the possibility of the con solidation of the Missouri Pacific with other roads. It was reported by the jury that, the firm represented Kdwin F. Jordan as well as the Shawnee county board at tile time of the tram action, but. that the county's interests were not sacrificed. .."No effort was ever made by , the , .county, the jury lounav to' rescIwoMtoe contract. Sealed Verdict- Tuesday Night. It was 10;30 last. nightNwhen the jury reported t.to Judge ' Whitfcomb- that ;t had arrived at a verdict. This verdict was sealed and was not opened tini.il 9 o'clock this morning. It was then found that .-several of the special Ques tions 'had not been answered and the jury was permitted ,to return to com plete its work. It was 11 o'clock this morning when the verdict was read. In their anxiety to foresee the ver dict of the jury.- a morning paper predicted a verdict for the plaintiff. After the reading-.ot the verdict. Cap tain Joseph G. Waters, on behalf of the defendants, brought the article to the attention of the court and open ly declared that the practice of an ticipating a court verdict was unpro fessional and a gross injustice to the court, the jury , and litigants. He also asked that a reprimand of the method be enterec. in the record, but the court dec-lined -j take notice of the paper's wild and unwarranted guess. The verdict in the Kelly suit to day, ends . the actions against the stock brokers. In February an action brought - by 'Grant township, Reno county, was heard in the Shawnee county court. After spending two hours on the evidence, the jury found for the defendants. The decision to day in the Shawnee county case com pletely exonerates the firm from any charge of fraud in connection with the sale of Missouri Pacific stock.

SHE WILL WEAR WHITE Mrs. Astor Xot to Wear Ieep Mourn ing; for Husband. Pumps Blood Through System '' for Two Minutes. Xew York, May 22. Mrs. John Ja cob As4or. who, at 19, was widowed by the Titanic disaster, will wear white not black as mourning for her husband. Mrs. Astor wished indeed, felt it obligatory on her to wear the deep est mourning. But Mrs. Force, -her mother, believes she is too young to drape herself with ' black cloth and black crepe. Such funeral trappings might depress her spirits, even affect her health, at this, the most important time of her life. For it is a fact and established scientifically that prenatal influence is very powerful. So Mrs. Force has overruled her daughter's wish and has ordered widow's weeds of white for her. The gowns are cut on the simplest lines and like the millinery, are being made at a fashionable Fifth avenue mourn ing clothes store. Such dresses as are worn out of doors are of white crepe; the widow and lounging robes are of the finest, lusterlesg silks and louisines. At the shop where the Astor white mourning is being made it was said that .white mourning robes are . being more; and more worn. . . . , .. i Schenectady. N. Y., May 22. After her" heart had stopped beating and res piration has ceased following an oper ation for the removal of. gall stones. Miss Anna Loebenstein, a well known S'bung woman of this city,- is alive and practically out of danger. Miss Loeb enstein owes her life to the quick tbought and action of the operating surgeon, Charles G. McMullen... Dr. McMullen had successfully per formed the operation at a local hos pital and had just finished, suturing the incision in the abdomen when the attending nurse toid him that the pa tient was pulseless. Hurriedly iie removed the stitches .just taen.and, inserting his hand, reached up to the stilled heart. He gently grasped the human life pump, his hand closing and opening gently. The auricle and ventri cle, under the pressure began, forcing the life blood into the arteries to have it returned an instant later. The physicians continued the mani pulation with nurses and internes bending over the patient. For more than two minutes this was kept ur when suddenly a faint tinge was no ticed in the patient's face. The doctor continued the manipulation for perhaps another minute and then withdrew his hand. The heart of its own accord took up its work of pumping and in less than five minutes the patient was breathing properly. She was placed r bed and in an hour or two was pro nounced out of danger. The shock of the operation, together with unconsciousness physical anti pathy to anesthetics, is believed to have caused the heart to stop. Instead oi plain ether or chloroform, the doctors administered to Miss Loebenstein be fore the operation a combination of nitrous oxide, oxygen and ether, as they feared the effects of the nausea were ether given alone.

The Under wood leaders in Georgia, who will name the Baltimore delegates on May 29, have been warned ly Democratic national leaders thet the presence of Thomas Watson at the convention would be fatal to the party and thev urge that the former Populist candi date for the presidency be kept at home. Charles F. Murphy, Norman Mack, TTnited States Supreme Court Judge O'Gorman. Thomas Taggart and other leaders have sent a personal messen ger here to urge that-Wateon be kept off the delegation. They say that Wat son, in his vicious attacks on Cardinal Gibbons and other Catholic dignitaries, will kill any candidate Watson favors and that even if Watson's candidate is not nominated his mere presence at the convention would be hurtful. It is generally, admitted that Watson carried Georgia for Underwood and as Watson has announced his inten tion to head the Baltimore delegation the message from the national lead ers has embarrassed the Underwood managers here. No one can control Watson and it is predicted the convention that E-elects Baltimore delegates will be what Wat son says he intends to make it. "red headed." Offer Rings to Cause. Chicago. 111..
