Dr. Fowler looked nt tho pill box which tho District Attorney showed him. and recognized it as tho ono which had beon found that night In Miss Potts's room.

Tho coffee was used as an antidote for opium and to maintain and (nurensu the girl's vitality. Atropine, dleitulls. and whiskey wero also administered hjpuderniicnlly. They wero direct antagonists of morphltio und served to increase the heart's action. Dr. Fowler said that the remedies produced no effect " What did thit show ?" nskod Mr. Wellman. " That too great a quantity of morphine had been absorbed for tlio luiuedies to havu uny elTect" Dr. Fowler did not use n stomach pump be cause it would havu killed the girl In her con dition.

Dr. Fowler returned to his mvn house for a few minutes, mid then tho patient had rnlnpred Into her foriuor state.

"What would havo boon the ofToet," asked Mr. Wellmun. " It would have killed tho girl." replied Dr. Fowler, decisively. By 7 o'clock In the morning tho eyes of tho dying girl had beeomo very much dilated, and before death cumn they had diluted so that tho Iris was hardly slble. This, Dr. Fowler, ex plained, was a symptom of ontlro nervous prostration whloh precedes death, "We kept up the artificial respiration." con tinued the Doctor, "for u few minutes after llu. heart's action had stopped. Then I said: 'It's no use; she's gone.' This was about 11 o cluck. 'Is slio dead. Doctor;' Harris asked me. 1 snld 'Y'es,' und thon ho said, 'My God, what will beenmoof me?'

Young AckiMiiuin is now under Instructions to lsit thn building nt all hours ptescrlbed by (he old lilies. His futhersuys ho tloes not wish to give too much trouble, but In. feels Hurt his boy is being Imposed upon, and he may take measures to contest tin. light of tho Gover nors to onforeo the new lule. Georgo W. Conklln, cashier of Iho Tlrst Na tlonul Bunk of Jeisey City, one of the dover nors, said that thn rulo w.ts adopted in tin. in terest uf the boys, and not to discriminate against any boy or class of boys. It had been noticed that many of the young !s spent nearly every evening at tho luli liotisn play ing pool, pllliards, and bowling, olten tu the exclusion ot active members. F. E. Scaniinell, another Govornor. said Hint how'is not picsent when thn new rulo was passed, but he he.ntlly approved It. lie thought that boys ol lis to IS years old ought to be at home during tlio evcnlii,t hours, ami linduilht many of them would remain Micro If not permitted in tliuflut. Imti-u. Mr. hcamiiiell believed Mint tho (loieinors had not e.ceeded their aulhorily, and thut they wuuld enforce tin. now rule. ... Many of Iho nssoclutcs claim Mint the new rulo was adopted to cover up tho Inelllelcncy of tho House Committee, composed uf Messrs. Ellory. Bruns, and Wood, who liavn allowed tho rougher element or boys to vlulatu the lilies so long that theyliaio virtually nm tho clubhouse. On the first of the year John M. htelhmwerr, funnel Iy steward of the Arlington Club. Brooklyn, was instilled as btoward of MioOritanl, and ho found things run at such loose ends that ho madn a sli let enforcement of the rules a condition uf his remaining. Un dor his discipline the unruly buys have boon brought ton sense of club propriety, Muster Aekerman is referred to as one of the hoys who lius frequently beon guilty of Infrac tion of thu rules. It is snld thut he has on morn than ono occasion been taken to task by tho steward for sitting with his tout on a bll llnid table, nnd placing his feet on a table in tho gentlemen's parlor. Tho associates also claim that Messrs. BruiiH und Ellery of tho Mouse. Committee huvo thomselves broken tho ruin thut prohib its members bowling more than two games, nnd that thoy know of no Instance where an associate rnonibor demurred, it requested, tu givowny for nctlvo members at billiards or pool. According to their position, the whole trouhlo has arisen from want of enforcement ot tho rules by the House Commlttoe. Thero is a general fooling of resentment among the parents of tho associates who como undor the new rule, and J, B. Williams, whose son Is ono uf the proscribed, says that a petition is in iiieparntlnii asking that the rule be at oncp rescinded. He. llko Mr. Aekerman. talks ol legul procoodlngs to secure for his son rhihts that have been paid tor. and other members talk In a similar vein. Thoolub's expenses for tjie present yoar will be far in oxeoBsof last year, when It just mado ends meet It Is claimed that the ex clusion of those 10 and 18 year old associnto membors will cut down the lncorao materially, nsthoovenliigls tho only time thnt n groat minority of tho boys havo toUsit the club house, where they spond considerable sums on Id lliirds and pool. They will all leaielhe club if tho rule Is maintained, and the parents of sumo will, ulso withdraw, so that the total loss to the club for tbe year Is figured up into the hundred of dollars.
