Oddly enough. It wasn't to the man sworn In to try a criminal, then that criminal Is put In I wn ma,i(. t( either. ieonardv of life or limb. A Jury a sworn in to try Gillespie on the charge of murder. It was found that one of the Jurors was a relative by marriage of one of the defendants. Th presiding Judge decided the Jury to be Illegal and dis ni..l it Another Jury was summoned, was sworn In. and tiled Gillespie, finding him guiliy. Now, til supreme court of Indiana, the murder having hwn com mitted In that state, has decided that Gillespie was pui in Jeopardy of Ms life when the Prst Jury was sworn In though they never entered upon the trial and that consequently his trial by the second Jury was il legal, and he therefore Is now a free man. Comment ing on this case, the Louisville Coutier-Jntirtnil says and Its remarks are of Interest In connection with tho Thaw trial: 'It Is rather absurd in almost all cases to say t h:it n man asfiiiuA of murder Is nut in Jeonnrdv when a Jury Is sworn to try him.

"Murder Is about ten or twenty times as frequent in this country as In Great Mritaln, France or Germany. The reason fur this Is that over there it Is punished. ed "an animated feather duster." A feather duster," observes . this rare philosopher, "is not to blame for being a feather duster. No more so than a girl baby is to blame for being a girl. The point Is, being a feather duster, be an animated one' while you ire while here it is not, except ln the cases of people W'hoaDOUt jt have virtually no defense.

An Investigation of health condition In Albuquerque does not Indicate that there is un epidemic of dyspepsia here, although It Is sali that theru are "a few cases in certain quarters which have become chronic. A prominent physician states that one of the first and most pronounced t-yinptoms of dyspepsia is ill humor, morose silence, n heavy feeling of the head and mi inclination to sleep without belns able to do so. Ii may be only a coincidence, but th Morning War Cry and Its reform publisher certainly have all the symptoms of a bad cast. There is nothing so really serious about dyspepsia except In advanced stages. The Citizen therefore, out of pure good heart. edness, welcomes the discovery by the morning paper of a new cure for dyspepsia, and hopes it will prove a quick and sure specific.
