Raynor was placed in the hands of the jury at 7:30 o'clock last evening the court being in con tinuous session from early afternoon. Before deliberating the jury was per mitted to go out for dinner with the bailiff in charge. the greater part of the day was given over to the law points raised in tne instructions, the arguments not beginning until 4 o'clock, with an hour and a half to the side. Robert Jarrott, assistant county at torney, made the opening argument re viewing the evidence in the case. He was followed by P. H. Hayes, who declared that Raynor was without fault in going upon the premises of Calvin Heath for the purpose of cut ting the dyke and preventing his own lands from being ruined. He described tne little, home, the result or three years toil on the part of the defendant, and which was being reduced to utter worthlessness. Pointing out the right of Raynor to protect his own, counsel further declared that when he was as saulted by Heath he had the right to resist force by force. County attorney L. M. Laney con tended that there was not a scintilla of evidence that Heath had attacked Raynor. He recalled the fact that many of the witnesses were relatives and close friends of- the defense interest ed in the outcome of the case and against their testimony he weighed that of H. J. Thompson an eye witness to the crime. Heath, unarmed, had been quietly arguing with Raynor, who carried a gun and who was angrily discussing the situation while behind Raynor was his son with a shovel and his son-in-law, armed in the same fashion. Heath had made no move to assault according to Thompson, said the county attorney. "The law of self-defense is founded upon necessity, and in order to justify the taking of lite upon this ground, it must not only appear that the de fendant had reason to believe, and did believe that he was. in danger of his life, or of receiving great bodily harm, but it must also have appeared to the defendant's comprehension as a rea sonable person, that to avoid such danger it was absolutely necessary" for him to take the life of the deceased." The jury made a request for the map of the adjoining ranches in Avondale, the scene of the murder, which wasJ used in the case. It also asked per mission to take the instructions to the jury room both of which demands were granted.- Four forms of verdict were read, murder in the first degree, mur der in the second degree, manslaughter and not guilty. The instructions were lengthy, a few items- which seemed to impress the Jury especially when read by Judge Stanford were: I instruct you as a matter of law that the conduct of the deceased in di verting the waters of the Agua Fria river and permitting them to flood the premises of the defendant, constituted what is !known in law as a nuisance, and that the defendant had the right for the purpose of abating such nuis ance to enter upon the deceased's premises at the place where such nuis ance was being maintained, and use whatever means became necessary to protect and defend his own property from injury, provided his act of abat ing such nuisance did not constitute a breach of the peace. I further instruct you that if the de fendant had reasen to believe, and did believe the exercise of his legal rights in going upon the premises of de ceased and there diverting the water from the defendant's own premises, would result in a struggle or conflict, he might arm or otherwise prepare himself. A person has a right to go armed in the exercise of his legal rights even though by exercising such rights he puts himself in the way of being attacked. I instruct you that the fact that defendant went upon the deceased's premises armed, did not of itself de prive the defendant of the right of self-defence. The law justifies the in dividual wSh slays his adversary in his own necessary self-defense. I instruct you as a matter of law, that a person may lawfully oppose force by force in protecting his prop erty, and if while so doing he is as saulted by another, he is not obliged to retreat or call upon bystanders to protect him, but may stand his graujid and resist such assault, and if such assault is committed under circum stances that would cause a reasonable person to fear that he is in danger of death or serious bodily harm, he may slay his assailant, and the law will justify the act. is "ANKLETS" ARE THE NEWEST NOVELTY 1 " When your old clothes grow seedy, don't you wish that you could plant them where 'new ones would sprout in their place ?

The men have until December 15 to forward such claims to the di vision commander, and if they are unable to secure the proper affi davits within such time, they must forward their leUer and state addi tional proof will follow at a later date. Application for discharge will be considered from soldiers where the reason has arisen since their induc tion into the service. For instance, should a soldier's father die, leaving his mother absolutely dependent upon him for support, his applica tion for discharge will be looked into. Whenever a case like this comes up, the men may apply for their discharge at any time, and it is within the province of the di vision commander to either keep them in the service or let them go. Men who cannot unquestionably prove their claims, or who have had the opportunity to and did not sub mit all their proof to the local boards, need not apply for discharge, because their claims will be denied. This is the latest official order re garding the discharge of drafted men. 0 Tables may be reserved for the din ner-dance at the Hotel San Marcos Saturday up to and until 4 o'clock Sat urday afternoon.
