said Air. Wilson. "Tho fanners aro

"In tho past the manufacturers
ashed no quest-ions as to the continued

to educate tho farmer, while the edu

succeed without an abundanco of food
at reasonable prices, and now that
the. farniH in tho east have fallen awa3'
below tho standard of productiveness,
tho manufacturers arc awakening to the
danger of the underproduction.
"The government continued for half
a centum to give away fertile lands un
til now we have' little loft but dry
lands. The farmer in tho old da3's was
a good-natured person, working for
what wages ho could get and being
glad of it. while his sons went away
from the farm.

him about a method of curing her of

time, which sho did, first paying him, she
testified, a fco of $100.
Miss LIopp told the maglstraJjcT that

Most Important Witness for
State in Hyde Murder
Trial Is Heard.
Day One That Seems to Bode no
Favorable Outlook for
the Defense.
KANSAS CITY. May 3. Dr. Vict.or
C. Vaughn, toxocologiat of Ann Arbor,
Mich., and regarded by tho stato as
its most important witness in the Hyde
murder trial, began his testimony lato
Searches for poison made by him
nlono and' also with Dr. Walter S.
Haines of Chicago, said Dr. "Vaughn,
had resulted in the discovery of the
Tweiit-si-c thirty-thirds of a grain
of strychnia in tho eutire liver of Colo
nel Swope; signs of cyanide in the
stomach; a trace of strychnia in a
kidney; a suggestion, but no positive
proof of cyanide in tho stomach of
Chrismau Swope; strychnia in the con
tents of I ho stomach of Miss Marga
rot Swope; cyanide in capsules said to
havo been thrown into a street 1)3' Dr.
H3dc tho night he was expelled front
tho Swope home, last December .IS.
In reply to hypothetical questions re
garding the convulsions of Colonel
Thomas IT., Chrisman and Margaret
Swope, Dr. Vaughn said, in his opinion
they had been caused by Hip adminis
tration of somo convulsive poison. Cya
nide or slrychuine would produce such
symptoms, said tho witness.
Sums Up Conclusions.
Judging from his investigation of
the tragedies, said tho toxicologist, he
did not believe Colonel Swope died
from apoplexy or uraemic poisoning,
or Chrisman Swope from meningitis.
While on the stand Dr. Vaughn pro
cured what was purported to .be stri'di
nia takon from the liver of Colonel
Swope. Attorney Reed hold up the
exhibit and nnnounced what the scien
tist claimed it was. Dr. Tlyde laughed.
Mrs. Swopo cried. Mrs. Hyde listened
attentively to the attorney's words.
Jurvmen were permitted to look at
tho alleged drug through a magnifying
glass. Attor.nc'S for Dr. Hyde made
strenuous obiec'tien to this, but were
overruled. There probably was a two
hundred and fiftieth of a grain of the
drug in the case, said the expert. One
half a grain, he testified, would kill a
Strychnia when 'administered with
cyanfdc, said Dr. "Vaughn, would have
a' tendency to prolong life. Had spots
such as are said lo have appeared on
the limbs of Colonel Swope after his
convulsions mighty indicate cyanide
poisoning, tho physician testified.
Dr. Haines was the only witness be
sides Dr. Vaughn today. Ho said the
traces of strychnia he said ho found
in the bodies he examined referred to
particles of the drug of less than one
two hundred and fortieth of a grain.
Reviow of Testimony.
In his lestimoii3 yesterday Dr. Haines
told of iudiug traces of str3'chnine in
the electa of Margaret Swope, in the
brain and stomach of Colonol Thomas
H. Swopo and the liver and stomach
of Chrisman Swope. There wns no large
amount in either case, ho testified. Cy
anide was found by him and Dr. Vic
tor C. Vaughn in the stomnch of Colo
nel Swope nnd on capsules which Dr.
H3rdo is alleged to have discarded in
a street in Independence, he snid.
The motion made by the defense yes-(erda-
to strike out tho testimony of
Dr. liainos, on the ground that it was
speculative and irrelevant, was over
ruled b3r Judge Letslmw at the open
ing of court tod3. The court did not
pass on tho motion until it had read all
the scientist's testimony.
Envelopes which contained tho cap
sules and the cards upon which they
were fastoncd were offered in evi
dence. Stains upon tho paper wfcre
mado by cj'anido and melted snow, tes
tified tlio witness. Thoro wns no pos
sibility of tho poison found having
como from nny oonstituont part of tho
paper, said Dr. Haines. . A small frag
ment of a capsule was also exhibited.
"AVhat is the odor of cj'anido?''
asked Mr. Eocd.
"'That of bitter almonds,' ' replied
the witnoes.
This odor could be readily detoctcd
on tho hnnds after cyanide "had been
handled, testified the ph3sicinn.
Describing the nature of cyanide, Dr,
Haines said:
'-The poison may disappear from a
body in a few da3's or may remain for
several months. It is a volatile poi
son." Embalming fluid would harden the
tissues and tend to prevent the escape
of tho poison, said tho toxicologist.
Volatilization of tho C3'nnide would
bo prevented, in a niensifre. if n bod3'
was frozen, said tho witness.
Quostion of Amount.
'What aro falal doses of str3'chnine
and ej'auido?" queried Mr. Rood.
"A. third to n half grain of str3ch
nino and from three lo P.vp grains of
cyunidc,' answered Dr. Haines.
Attorney Walsh took tho witness.
"What do you moan by a trace of
strychnine?" asked Mr. Walsh.
"An amount so small that, it can
not be weighed." rpnlicd the witness.
Further questioning developed that
str3'chnine in amounts of 1-G10th of a
grain could bo weighed.
The frequently dlseusded question of
the admissibility of the testimony regard
ing tho attempts of Dr. Hydo's reprc
Heutatlvea to obtain tlw vlucer.m from Dr.
Haines wna argued again today. Tills
question occupied tho greator part of the
morning. Tho testimony was not ad
mitted. When on 'March 3 the flrst demand was
made for the m-gans Dr. Ilaliie,i had ad
mitted that no poisons In dangoroua ciuan
lltlen had been found by him. Mr. Walsh
therefore hold that It wuh only fair ai
that time to have permitted Dr. V,. 13.
