Tunlchannock, April II. C. SI. Bnr
low -was th first v incus examined In
tho AVall trial yesterday. Harlow tes
tified to seolnff hair that looked like
A piece of cow's tall lylnir near the pool
of blood In front of the Stevens House
the mnrnlns utter the death of Water
man, ami that next morning It was ly
ing upon the pool of blood. The infer
ence was that Its presence there was
merely accidental. This testimony
tended to neutralize the Impres
sion made by S. J. Keating' utate
ment. which wis to the effect that the
hnir had been vurposely put Into the
blood to bear -out the story of the horse
calking Itself.
Mrs. Bldleman, related the meeting
between herself and lllclimond at Dr.
J'enison's. In vlileii he offered for t'i'W
to t"ar up the wi'tten statement of
1'ivd'a nlle;red or tesslon, drop the
whole proceedings and clear out ami
leave the country. The witness asked
him if he thought who was fool enough
to think that that was all that was
tiiveKsary to stop the proceedings, und
told him that he could not ret any
thing out of her. Witness further tes
tified to Interviewing Nina Shook ut
Noxo-n. Dec. l.when Nlua related the ul
Itired conversation she overheard be
tween Pratt and Westcott, during
which Pratt offered Westcott money to
swear differently in court than he In
tended to and that Nina declared to
her that that was all she knew about
the matter. She also expressed a will
ingness to swear before Will Secor that
It was all she knew. Witness also vis
ited Mrs. Keating on the same day, and
Mi's. Keating related what Fred had
paid to her at different times about his
troubles and claimed that her story
1!i. n did not at all agree with her (Mrs.
Keating' s) testimony on the stand, al
though she uverred to witness that It
was all she knew. Mrs. llldleman is a
sister of Fred Wail.
Cora Carpenter, a domestic In Pr. Bl
dlenian's family, corroborated Mrs.
dlemau's testimony.
Dr. Denison testified that Richmond
told him on the night of Dec. 31, 1S94.
that he would go to California and for
jrst to come back if a purse of S-iJO was
raised for him.
E. V. Lott saw Fred Wall and Bert
Pratt at th Warren Street hotel be
tween 10 and 11 o'clock- on the night
of Jan. 8. H also saw the body of
Waterman before it was removed from
where It was found. Examined ground
and found a. loose stone, which fitted
Into a niche In wall. The clothes on
the body were all In perfect order, ex
cept his pants were slightly drawn
up over the boots.
Thomas Monsey testified that Rich
mond was apparently drunk on the day
he arrested Wall.
Mrs. George Hinkley: "My Jyj-and
keps the Nicholson. Housg, Nichol
son. Saw Richmond, jx our housa
when ;he rylaKn He was
tucre once before and had a young-lady
with him. He told me that she one
of the best detectives In New York city.
Jerome Cornell told me afterward that
she wa3 a young lady from Tunkhan-1
nock." Witness related the arrest of
Westcott and said that Richmond told
him he had better turn state's evidence.
Several other witnesses called to cor
roborate former testimony.
W. E. Carpenter testltled as to the lo
cation of the street lamps In the vicin
ity of the tragedy and that they were
all lighted on the night In question.
Saturday Afternoon.
J. Wood Piatt recalled and stated
that Richmond was drunk when he ar
rested Wall. His reason for thinking
o was because his face was flushed.
lA.'M. Eastman, Justice of the peace, be
fore whom Richmond made the Infor
mation on which Wall was committed,
concurred In the opinion.
Bert Pratt, a prisoner at the Jail on
charge of being an accomplice in the
murder of Waterman, called: "Am a
resident of Nicholson township. Was
et January court last year, had a suit
agaln.t Henry Waterman." Witness
relates events leading up to the time
the alleged murder occurred, much In
detail as Fred Wall had done, getting
himself safely to bed at the Stevens
house in due time. He did not fix a
specific time at which the latter event
occurred however. Ho also related the
details of his arrest. On cross-examination
he denied the alleged offer of
money to Wesoott to change his testi
mony In the case In which he, the wit
ness, was Interested. He fixed the
time that he and Wall got back to the
Stevens house, after their tour about
town In search of oysters and drinks as
between 10 and 11 o'clock.
The balance of the afternoon was
sent In examining a cloud of witnesses,
chiefly In rebuttal, of former testimony
and bearing upon the veracity of the
witnesses in chief upon both sides. No
new facts of any Importance were
brought to light, and Judge, Jury, coun
sel and spectators drew a sigh of relief
when It was announced shortly after C
o'clock that the testimony was all In.
The court was 'then adjourned till Mon
day afternoon. V. H. L.
CROSS EYES MAY BE CURED.
A Visual Defect Homovod by the Early
L'ae of Olusscn.
Strabismus or "cross eyes are now
safely and almost painlessly corrected.
The desired result may be obtained by
the wearing of proper spectacles In
early youth; but according to tho Phil
adelphia Record, If the evil Is not then
corrected, an operation later on will be'
necessary.
The removal of a "cataract" from the
eye is one of the roost delicate opera
tions performed by the, oculist. A cat
aract Is formed by thet lens of the eye
becoming opaque, so as to appear gray
ish or otherwise, when It shuts out the
light from the optic nerve. The oculist
of to-day cuts Into the ball of tho eye
and removes the darkened lens, and tho
optician suplles the defect by airtlflclal
lenses that make good Uie eight. The
demand for glass eyes is increasing as
the character and quality of the eyes
Improve,-, Unsightly eyeballs are now
removed In part, leaving enough of the
muscles to rotate the glass shell that Is
placed over them. Where the work Is
properly done the possessor of the glass
eye can move it about with all the nat
uralness of a real optic, and In many
oases U Is very difficult to tell the man
ufactured article from the genuine.
All the wild stories about substituting
Tabbits' eyes for human eyes, .or the
statements to the effect that oculists
can take eyes from their sockets, wipe
them on a coarse towel and restore
' them unimpaired to the happy patient,
I .
are all moonshine, and any one who Is
called upon, to listen to such tales is
perfectly Justified If under the.clrcum
Btapce ha should wink the other eye,

THE I TOUTS OF LITERATURE
Novclltla of tho loy Who Are Making
.Money.
From tho Brooklyn Standard-Union.
Just what a successful hit In litera
ture means to an author in dollars and
cents was deroonstated to mo a few
days since, when I saw a check sent to
Hall Calne for nearly 95,000 as royal
ties on the American sales of "The
Manxman" during the last four months.
In tho same manner over $10,000 has
been sent to Stanley Weyman by his
American publishers as royalties on his
books during the last nine months.
What has been thus far remitted to
Mr. Du Maurler fs not known, but it Is
close to accuracy to place his revenue
from "Trilby" at $25,000. It was not an
unusal thing for Robert Louis Steven
son to recciva $15,000 a year from his
literary work, and I remembered very
well, during the popularity of "Little
Lord Fauntleroy" as a book and play,
that Mrs. Burnett's yearly Income ex
ceeded 12.1,000. Mary Wllklns has net
ted over $5,000 from "Pembroke," while
a close friend of S. R. Crockett tells me
that his Income hint year from his writ
ings was over $20,000.
.Literary success Is a very profitable
thing, without a doubt. When once it
Is achieved the truth of the old maxim,
that nothing succeeds like success, is
very quickly demonstrated to tho au
thor. But only the few reach the covet
ed goal. A novel, for example, must
sell 5,000 copies before it pays Its pub
lisher and begins to show a profit to Ms
author. And when one considers that
not one out of 40 novels ever reach a
6,000 sale, the chances of success will
better understood. ,
DRINKS OF UNITED STATES.

From the Now York 8un.
The total amount of grata which in a
year enters into the production of spir
ituous or malt liquors In the United
Skates is 20,000,000 bushels. This item
of revenue is one which causes some
farmers, .especially in years of poor
harvests, to look with, more favor upon
the distillery and brewing business
than they might otherwise. ' At the
head of the grains used stands corn, to
the amount of 15,000,000 bushels. Tho
chief states supplying corn to distlller
iese are Kentucky, G'000,000 bushels; Illi
nois, 4,000,000 bushels, and Ohio and In
diana, 1,000,000 each. New York sup
plies about 2(10,000 bushels. .
Tho consumption of rye for distillery
purposes amounts to 4,000,000 bushels
In a year. Pennsylvania and Ken
tucky together furnish about two
thirds of the ryo used for the manufac
ture of whiskey
The quantity of molasses used for the
production of rum lut year amounted
to 2,600,000 gallons. The amount of
ruin produced was 1,800,000 gallons, a
shrlnkngo of 700,000 gallonH In tho pro
cess of nuuiufusturc. Two states wero
the chief consumers, Massunchusetts
and New York. .Mussochusetts tukcs
high rank In the qunllty und quantity
of her ruin and has done ho for many
years. New York stnto has of lute
years been crowding Massachusetts
closely In the production of rum.
Barley enters Into the production of
beor to the extent of about 3,000,000
bushels u year. The other grains used
aie unimportant, a few thousand bush
els of oats being used for the cheaper
grades of brandy -In Indiana chiefly.
The total Hales ol! liquor In thei United
States lu 1S04 amounted to 10,000,000 gal
lons of domestic product, exclusive of
l.SUO.UOO kuUoub of spirit distilled from
fruits. Tho total amount of malt Il
linois manufactured In the United
States In IS'.U amounted to 1,000,000 gul
lons, lu respect to Importations, Just
twice as much beer and ult was Import
ed Into the United States us of whis
key, rum, und brandy. The only con
siderable item of foreign importation Is
wine, the Imports of which a mount to
fi.000,000 gallons u year. Twenty years
niro more than one-quarter of the wines
consumed In the United States were of
foreign importation. Now the propor
tion amounts to only one-sixth. This Is
due to tin activity of the California
wine growers, whntfo output has stead
ily Increased In value year by year.
More than twice us much bourbon ns
rye whiskey is manufactured in the
United States In a year. The largest
Internal revenue district for tho manu
facture of bourbon whiskey Is the Fifth
Kentucky or Louisville district. The
Lexington, or Blue Grass district, In
Kentucky, has un output of 5,000,000 in
a year. For rye whiskey the Twenty
third district of Pennsylvania (Pitts
burg) stands first and Baltimore sec
ond. Boston Is llrst In rum and New
i ork first In gin, and also in beer.
1XDISTKIAL TOPICS..
President Kepew, of the New Yjr Cen
tral, Is of the opinion that 1 1 e notion of
the trunk lino presidents In freeing to
restore and malntuln rates p,! bo most
beneficial. Never before, heui, were tho
presidents so anxious to rtore 'harmony.
He predicts that after ,iay 1 very little
will be heard about cu'atcs for some tlma
to come.
Pittsburg, Apr" 12,-Personal inquiry
by reporters of a Times among the big
iron and steohHnuftu.turers of Pittsburg
reveals thjnet that business Is from 25 to
50 per eit- letter now than It was a year
aS Tlanufueturers say that the condi
ftns now are identical with those of this
period In 1K79, which was followed by the
greatest boom ever known to the Iron
trade, when the rate, for puddling, which Is
now $.1.50 to $4, went to K75 a ton. There
is nothing like a boom now, but even the
most conservative of the iron men say
tho outlook is good, and that an exceed
ingly prosperous future appears assured.
A dispatch from New York Thursday an
nounced that all negotiations for a set
tlement of the differences between the an
thracite coal carrying and producing com
panies have been abandoned for the pres
ent. No official announcement to this ef
fect has yet been made, but It Is quite
probable, In view of late developments,
which Include the Reading's refusal to
submit to arbitration the question as to
the distribution of this year's business;
Its demand for 21 per cent, of the total
business, and the declination of Presi
dent Olyphant, of the Delaware and Hud
son, to accept the chairmanship of the
committee of five, that no meeting of the
presidents will be held until the trade
again verges on to a panic, as It did a
month or more ago.
The announcement was mado Thursday
afternoon that the Reading company had
cut prices on the city and line trade about
10 cents a ton. So far as could be learned
tho other companies have not mot the cut,
but It Is probable that they will do so un
less the Reading restores the old rates.
Tho cut Is made In face of the fact that
the various producing companies have
been strictly adhering to tho ugreemcnt to
curtail production this month. This Is
shown by the statement of shipments of
anthracite coal for the week ended Satur
day last, when total shipments amounted
to (K-t,OI9 tons, and while this Is an Increase
of 107,15)7 tons over the corresponding week
last year. It Is a decrease, compared with
tho preceding week, of XC.1W) tons. Each
of the three regions curtailed output dur
ing the week. Comparing the figures with
those of the preceding week, tho redtirtlon
was as follows: Wyoming region, 151,759
tons; Lehigh region, 29,104 tons; Schuylkill
region, 155,317 tons. Proportionately, tho
reduction was largest In tho Schuylkill
region.
Easiest way to kill a chicken Is to
break tho egg before It Is hatched. Same

sion. Thn most striking feature of the
trading was tho advance and activity In
the Vanderbllts, Luke Shore was the spe
cial feature and rose 8 to 14214 with a sub
sequent reaction to 141, Michigan Cen
tral sold up from 97 to 98, New York
Central from 07 to 98, Canada Southern
from fiO- to 52. The rise was attributed
to the recent agreement reached by the
trunk lines presidents to form a money
pool and to restore rates. These stocks
exerted a favorable Influence on the wholo
murknt and prices moved up anywhora
from M to . The coalers were strength
ened by reports that tho Heading rocelvers
will resume negotiations with the anthra
cite presidents on Monday next. The In
dustrials were stronger end advanced.
