At It the status of trachoma among the Ameri can Indian especially of the southwest was carefully gone over and statistics looked into. Dr. Murphy with Mr. Door, Mr. Pollock and Superintendent Crandall met the representative of the New Mexican and stated that a conservative average of the number of trachoma cases is probably thirty-, three per cent but that there are pu eblos where there Is practically no trachoma. These are Zunl, Islcta, San Felipe and in Arizona there is no trachoma among the I'i.nai, Al'-j aches and Papagos Indians. Not Slarlol Ity Dust. j Dr. Murphy said that trachoma Is due to on Infection but the genu Is "ultra microscopic.'1 He said that he did not think that trachoma is necessarily more preva lent In dusty countries than In others for in certain places of Arizona where the dust Is thick enough to cut It with a knlfo there Is no trachoma among the Indians. Dr. Murphy stated that in the ptoi year at the I'nited States Indian In dustrial School here that of H3 per cent of cases of trachoma observed, 12 or 1.1 per cent had gone away prac tically well and 20 percent now un der treatment show the most encour aging prognosis. This is just what the fighters of trachoma among the j Indian desire: to control and cure the disease nmong the young Indians, for 1 II is moro or less a hopeless task to .jrrapplc with it when It has worked " : . .. ., .1.1.. Its ravages tor years on ine eyeuns of the older people. Mr. Crandall stated that the "Stale of New Mexico" ought certainly to have some regulation for the exami nation of all children in schools for the purpose of detecting trachoma In the early stages as other diseases. Dr. Murphy took the same view and pointed nut the attention that is publ to scarlet fever, smallpox and measles. I'umoiis Painting: Sold. London.

The testimony of the father on be half of his son came as the dramatic close of a long day's battle by the de fense against the evidence heaped up by the prosecution. Tomorrow the accused himself will no on the stand and the defense will rest Its case.

The most surprising refutation of the day against Faul'.- testimony came when Kmest H. Xcblltt, said that on Sunday.

Paul had maintained ever since the coron er's inquest that he disposed of the gun the same duy ho bought It, Sat urday, July 15, by giving it to Henry. Subsequently the defense brnnght many witnesses t . toll of Mr. Xeblltt's good character Mid brought others to attack Paul's '.ernoltv E. H.

The rather spoke highly of his son's character and controverted the testi mony ol many witnesses tor the pros ecution thnt Henry showed no signs of arlef after his wiles' murder. II de clared Henry had sobbed and moaned almost all tilghl alter the tragedy. When lleattie had finished and was ready for cross-examination by the prosecution, Mr. Wcndetiburg waived Ihe opportunity. It was the first time during the trial that this had oc curred.
