Tho crowd which listened to the, argu

tho last moment.
When Jessie Morrison awoke In her celt
this morning It was with a scne of th
realization that her fate at the hands of thi

yesterday from S 33 In tho morning till W

quietly, her whole being radiated sunshln.
Th roll of the Jury was calb-el promptly
at S.30 this morning. As on as tho Juron
had taken their seats Judge Shinn ordered
the twelve men to retire. Tho Jury was lei
to a small room on the seconel floor of th
Ceurthoue set aside for It nnd Its struggle
began. People In the hallway outside could
hear the men talking loudly, apparently alL
at the same lime.
