THE SEAY MURDER CASE The Chain of Circumstantial Evidence is Not Complete. (Sl?ei-la3 Dicp.iteb In Tlie Time?.3 LA PORTE. IND., June 13.?The at? torneys have had their say to-day in tho Seay murder case at Noblesville.? Before the defense rested its case it made an effort to impeach the evidence of John Knarr, engineer at tho mill, by trying to show that he made a state mciu irreconcilable with the. rest of the State's evidence. The defense also pro? duced some character witnesses and also offoied the testimony of L. P. Fodrea, father of the defendant, to sh?->w that the allegc-d murderer was at home the night of the assassination. Those who spoke for the State were Judge 1". J. Kane. Ralph K. Kane and Prosecutor J. F. Beals. while the de? fendant's case was argued ?'?"?" L. S. Baldwin. Ira W. Christion and XV. S. Chrlstion. The arguments will be com? pleted to-morrow, when the case will go to the jury. It Is b??!ic5?-ed by some that the chain oi circumstantial evidence is not as strong as was expected before th-* trial. On the other hand, it is ?conceded that the defense was exceedingly weak. But few as yet Pretend to guess what the verdict will be. The defense contended that the testimony presented by the State was insufficient to overcome thc presumption of innocence to which the defendant is entitled. He .c:aid the defense : proved bv the Slate's own testimony that he was not ?sufficiently connected with the crime to make it a transaction of On?* person, and under the law the State 'must establish such a condition of circumstances in or? der to convict the defendant. The defense also maintained that the proof of Fodrea's unblemished reputation tends to fortify the defense and estab? lish the innocence of the accused. Miss Levi, who said eslerday that Fodrea was one of the men who called at her house near the scene of the crimr thirty minutes before the murder oc currea, was impeached to-day by her father, who said his daughter told him two months ago. she could not possibly identify Fodrea. The case will reach the jury at noon to-morrow. The opinion prevails that the verdict will acquit Fodrea. SECURES GOOD TEACHER Rev. M. A. Martin Comes to the Wom? an's College Next Session.

The straight rc'ciprocity men urged th.at the effect ?would be to cause at least some of the beet sugar Republicans to abandon their opposition. They contended that many o:1 them had misunderstood the attitude of the President, and now that this had been made clear ther?> could be no longer any excuse for opposing a straight reciprocity measure.

ACTIVITY FOR RECIPROCITY Literature Distributed in This Country With a View to Throwing Light on the Situation in Cuba and the Needs of the Island, (By Associated Tress.) BOSTON, June 13?During his visit to this city to-day. General Leonard Wood, formerly Governor-General of Cuba, ex? pressed himself in no uncertain terms regarding tho alleged irregularities in the expentliture of Cuban Government funds in the interest of reciprocity. He de? clared that acting as a truste?*; for the island, he had spent the money to good purpose, and had done simply what any ?rood arministrator would have done in like circumstances. General Wood said: "There is nothing in connection with my administration of Cuba that I wish to cover \tp. Talk of investigation is welcome to me. Every expenditure that was made was free and above board. RECIPROCITY NEEDED. "So far as I can see. there was noth? ing new brought out by the testimony of Mr. Th?rber. It. perhaps, accentuated a little the needs of Cuba as regards re- ? ciprocity with this country. "I was acting as a trustee for Cuba; I simply used Mr. Thurber's mailing list as the best means of distributing the literature on reciprocity and this -?vas well known before the examination of Mr. Thurber by the Senate Committee. In my opinion, the opposition to tariff reciprocity with Cuba has proceeded upon lines of misapprehension. I took it upon myself to place the facts before the people of the United States as I saw them. There seemed to be no one else to undertake the task. FOR THE ISLAND'S GOOD. "What I did I considered best for the Industrial salvation of the islands. Th reason I took it up with Mr. Thurber was that he represented $0,000 thinking people in this country. I dealt with him simply as a bureau of information, and through him G distributed the information I wanted to place beforr* the American people. My position was identical with that of the trustee of an estate who finds it incumbent upon himself to refute I unjust claims upon tho estate upon which j he is called to administer. Any man would be false to his trust who did not do all in his power to contest such claims, and that is all I did." !

Sociat Instincts of Ants In order not to leave my readers under the imoression of crime among ants, ' shall close with the account of a.trait-ot devotion to the common weal, writea Au? gust Forel in The International Montili, for June. 1302. A swarm of Formica pra tensis was closely pressed in its nest d> an array of the same species, and crowds of ?alarmed defenders issued trom the en? trances to the nest and ilew to take part In the iig>?~. Like Satan, the tempter of old, I placed near them a beautiful drop of honev on a piece* of paper. At any other time the honey would have been covered in a few Instants with ants gorg? ing themselves, but this time, numerous working ants came upon it. tasted It for scarcely a second, and returned to it restlessly three or four times. Conscien? tiousness, the feeling of duty. Invariably prevailed over gormandism, and they left the honey to go and be killed while de? fending the community. I am bound to own. however, that there are ants less social, in whom gormandism does prevail. Compared to the manners of other so? ciable animals, and especially to those of man, the manners of ants exhibit a profound and fundamental aggregation of facts of convergence, due to their social life. Let me mention devotion, the in? stinctive sentiment of duty, slavery, tor? ture, war. alliances, the raising of cattle, gardening, harvesting, and even social d?g?n?rescence through the attraction of certain harmful means of enjoyment. It would be ridiculous and erroneous to see in the fulfilment of this series of acts, in? dividual reasoning, the result of calcu? lated reflection, analogous to ours. The fact that each is fixed and circumscribed within one species, as well as the fatal? istic character it has in that species, prove this superabundantly. But It would be as grave a mist.ake to refuse to recognize the deep natural laws that are concealed under this convergence. Is tho case differ? ent as regards our actions though they are Infinitely more plastic and more com? plex Individually? I do not believe it. I have been unable to give more than a short sketch of the social life of ants. Let each one study it for himself, and he will experience in doing so the deep en? joyment that comes from sounding the secrets and laws of nature, wHSIe a> the same time he will enjoy the most delight? ful satire upon human wretchedness and will perceive at ?east the main lines of a social example that we ousrht to be able to imitato, thou?h wo cannot do so, on account of the too larire doso of ego? tistical and ferocious instincts that we have Inherited from our ancestors. ????_?_.?+.-, Good Stories of Cecil Rhodes. While the late Cecil Rhodes, diamond king and empire builder, did not pose as a phiiosopher. nor even an a man ?f leming, he had far more than ordinary insight and shrewdness, as his career showed, and some of the sententious ut? terances that fell from his lips are well worthy of quotation. "Life is too short, after ?all." he used to say, "to worry about provious lives. Trom the cradle to tho grave?what is it? Three days at the seaside. Just that and nothing more. But although it is only three days wc must be doing something. I cannot spend my time throwing stones into the water. But what is wcith while doing?" When asked how- he proposed to carry his Cate? to-Cairo telegraph across the Soudan, which was then under the dominion of the Khalifa, hi replied: "Oh, leave it to ihe. ' I never met men yet that I could not come to an agreement with, and I shall be able to fix things up with the Khalifa right enough when the time comes." This is the germ of the fictiun that ' credited Mr. Rhodes with having declared that he never met a man lie could not buy! ."I say that the day will coihe when the wars of the world will be.tariff wars; that is golrg to be the futuro policy of the world." "It" is no use for us to have big ideas if we have not got the money to carry them out." Rhodes once remarked to General Gor? ami.?Leslie's Weekly. Scent in Birds..
