Mr Maltb olijectcd veliementlv to this statement and Insisted on answering. It was with difficult j that Judge Scott pot Iihh to keep quiet and allow the court to run the case Dr Dunbar liecame much aroused also at tWs point and said "It's prettv hard to lecp till." "1 want to slwwthat there is not a word of truth in these stones of that man,'' Mid Mr Maltb, indicating Dr Dunbar "I'll bnnr witnesses that Uiere is not a word of truth in it " "No you won't," said Judge Scott "Such evidence has nothing whatever to do with this case and both of ou 111.1v just as well understand that such matters are not going to be brought m.' Mrs Maltby nc.t took the stand She testified that the chicken were laying and Dr Dunbar nlwajs had all the eggs to eat he wanted He had said the eggs were sold "There is no such testimony here,'' said judge Scott 'Well, Dr Dunbar testified that be fore,' replied Mrs Moltbj "Anihow I cooked tor him and 1 know how to cook 3 don't give back to huvIkkIv on that.

"Yes, and jour wife proved jou a liar every time jou had a contest." "I want my questions answered." shout ed Mr Maltbj not waiting for the comt. "Just let me, jialge," exclaimed the old doctor, trembling with "wrath and looking at the court appcalinglj ; ' let me at him, and I'll knock him down in two seconds " "You conic this waj and I'll stand you cm jour head," replied Mr Maltbj-, taking an attitude of self-defense The two glared at each other a moment, but the judge called them to order. It developed that they went to the White House together to see Mr. Pruden. Dr. Dunttar said Maltby told Mr. Pruden he was an attorney. That was enough. He denied Maltby's statement to Mr Pruden end came away. He would neer have an thing more to do with "such a green lizard." -Wbal is a green 1'zard?" asked Mr. Maltby. A perjured liar.' Affr Artist Dunbar had testified that he had gicn money secretly to Maltby for his father's support because the old gentleman was angrj with him and w ould take mthing. Col.
