Much Interest Manifested and the Courtroom Continually Crowded. for of of nor de snotulcnt has of and that by The principal topic of conversation for the pant week, ban been the Long case, and the Court-room has been constantly crowd ed with eager spectators. The trial got fairly unde headway Wedneaday morning. The Stnto'a first wltncsnea were Dm. Knot Holmes, C. K. Vance and H. M. Drown, who conduct ed the pott mortem examination. They testi fied as to the location of the wound, and agreed that it was necessarily fatal. Isaac Sonner testified that ho was at Long bam one day, and they were talking about the tobuvco trial. Long said : "If Cass Mur phy ever troubles me I'll kill him, and I've got the thing to Co It with." He put his hand back like he had a revolver, but he didn't show any. Byron Hart. Went from Danville to Lynchburg with Long on Tuesday before the killing. A rabbit ran aero the road, and I aaked Long If he had a revolver, and shot and killed the rabbit. Then I wanted to trade for his revolver, or buy it, but he said : "No, if I soil this one 1 will hnvo to get another one." He aald : "You and the Murphys are on good terms ; I'm not. Cass ha run me twice, and If he ever troubles me Again I'll shoot him." Said he had con Bull ed a lawyer, and knew just how to get around It. John Walker tc&tifiml that George Long was at his blacksmith shop on June 1st, also June l-rth or Pith. Before he came the last time the Murphy boys had been there, and Byron toh me Mong would not pay his debts. 1 told Long his neighbors said he wouldn't pay his debts, and he asked who said it. I hinted that Byron Murphy said so, aud Long said : 'I run Byron off the pike. and if Cans ever I defend myself or shoot, the son of a b h." He Hhowed me his revol ver. William Johnson said : Saw George Long in town the day of the kl 111 net, and he wanted to go out with me ; said Cass Mar phy had run him twice, aud he wanted to go out with me. I said : "You go with me and I'D take you pastMurphy'ssafe." Whei I got ready to go I couldn't find him. I wait ed about fifteen minutes, and then went home. Byron Murphy gave a delailed account of his nations on the evening of the killing, and then testified as follows: When 1 first saw Cass I was In the cow-pen ; he was in the yard. Didn't see him at the cherry trco. My attention was called by Long saying: You big son of a bh, don't you follow me." Heard nothing said by either till they had crossed the bridge. Cass said : "I'm not fol lowing you, you dirty stiuker ; but don't you call me a son of a bh ." Long said : "G d n you, I'll call you what I please; I'm fixed for you, and I'm not afraid of yon." They both quickened their pace, but I don't think either of them run. Long Mopped and turned around nnd aald something, think, and shot. Cass reeled aronnd, and the women Bcreamed to me and said Cass was shot. I went as fast as I could, but when 1 got there he was dead. The women came nnd a crowd gathered. C'roBs-Examined Don't know who got to the body first after me. Found no knife or anything elte about him: Never had any particularly had feeling toward Long. Sold him lily acres of land, aud took a mortgage on it for the deferred payment. The first the trouble with him was when he served notice on me claiming that he didn't get enough land. After the surveyor surveyed it and made his calculation I paid him 81 and some cents, aud that settled it. Did not press him with the mortgage. Did not try buy a note and mortgage on him from Cal vin Speuce. Never knew Cass and Long have any ill-feeling betweeu them ; Cass never told me about any. Did not take any brass knuckles, or lead or Iron knuckles, from Cass's body or near it. Did not offer Anthony Miller 8100 to be here and get on the jury, or get a man on the jury. He-Examined. Long would not let me pass htm one day on the pike going from Hlllsboro to New Mat Uet. I tried to pass dozen times, but he always drove ao I eould not pass him. When we got to New Market I asked him what he meant, and he said had held him on the road, and commenced cussing me. I am in the habit of buying and loaning money. Miss Nannie Murphy 's testimony did not differ from tjiat of her brother In any im portant particular. Mrs. Isabello Murphy, widow of Cass Murphy , testified, as did her sister-in-law, that she was in the cow lot the time of the shooting. They had just finished milking. Her husband had no pis tol or other weapon, and carried none. By ron Murphy recalled: Cass had no weapon of any kind about the house. Here the State rested and Court adjourned. Thursday morning the witnesses for defense were sworn, and Capt.T. C. Downy, a lawyer from Winchester, was the first tuke the stand. He testified to the good rep utation of Long where he knew him. Nine teen wltueffsea from Brown county testified that they knew Long In his early boyhood as quiet, peaceable and Inoffensive. John Dye, of Sardinia, and James Bradford, Winchester, swore to the same. Isaac Wilkin was next to testify. Have lived two miles south of New Market fifty years. Have known Long since 1SH0. He was a go ')d neighbor, and had a good rep utation. Didn't hear of his having a difll nulty at Sugartree Kidge, or in a saloon here. Knew Cass Murphy for about thirty years before his death. Had no trouble with him. Think, he was a violent, quarrelsome man. Didn't consider him a sa'e man. Don't of his haviug any fight after one with Bill Whlsler, neve" or eight years ago. Am not positive about the date. and the Whlslers had been fighting ever since they had been there. Didn't see fight; saw Cabs after the fiht before he washed. His quarrelsomeness was a com mon talk about New Market. Have no at any of the Murphys except Byron. He sued trie ou a note. Caas beat up Mose Whialer at a celebration between and '07 ( don't know the exact year. People were sarry when Cuss came back from West, because they had had peace while was nway. Lewis Gibler: Know Long. Never knew but that he wasquietaud peace able. Knew Murphy ; his reputation for ing peaceable was not very good. Long fused to let the two Helscher boya Into school-house when he was door-keeper. had been ordered not to admit them. Quite a number of witnesses were here troduced to prove that Long was a peaceable citizen, and that Murphy had a reputation for being quarrelsome. Court then adjourn ed for the day. On Thursday morning E. E. Mullenix appointed bailiff to keep order in the uud better order prevailed throughout day except for a while In the afternoon, the fox drag Interrupted the entire proceed ings. J, V, Duller wus placed ou the stand, testified av follows: Live l1 in litis wet Hillshoro. Dou't kuow Long. Knew phy. Had a conversation with him on wale day in June lu liillsboro. Heufekedme if I had a big mule which I had once, tiad sold at that time. We weie near scale house on High street. While he talking Lung went into Grad ' realuuraut.

He replied : "He's n better man than I yon are." That, was the Inst lime I ever Kfw j Cflss Murphy. Think I told whoever told me of Murphy' death nhnut l he conversa Don. Joseph Barierc Was In New Markft the lay of killing. Didn't see the killing. Heard Cass Murphy spoak about Long to John Gib- ler on the day of the school election. Gibler wits pretty full. Heard Murphy say If he ever got hold of L'jng he would turn him two or three somersets. He cussed around a good while. I wm standing near Murphy Glhlfr said: "That's all right; give him h 1." Told my father about It, because we were always expecting to have trouble with Murphy. Listened because I thought they were talking about father. Arn a son of Nelson Bnrrere. Albert Brewer.

George Long went home past my house that even ing. That was about a m lie out of his way. John Stewart. Hoard Cass Murphy talking about Long at Wilkin's Ktoro about two weeks before the killing. He said : " He's a party specimen of humanity, and I'd like to lick him." Think there wus an oath in It. Alf . Davl.-. Heard Cuss Murphy sny ut the picture gallery in New Market that he Intended to mash every bmne In Long's body. Kemcmbered It because I thought it was a pretty bold assertion. Grutit McCounaughey. Was in HilUboro ut the June stock sale. Kode part of the way home with Albert Brewer nnd George Long. Byron nnd Cnss Murphy passed us li. a buck-hoard. Chsh turned and said : " I co ild lick you, "or "I'd Ii';e to lick you," I don't know which. Said It In an overbearing wa, and looked at Long, 'Squire Mclleynolds testified that he saw the killing, but his statements in that regard did not dlfi'er rnnch froiri other wit nesses. He testified to having seen tracks in the road which he thought were the tracks of Long und Murphy. They were four or five feet apart where the shooting occurred. '"rank M c Hoy n olds. Saw the killing. Heard Cass talking about Long on the Nt day 01 June. He said: "I'd like to lick the little son of a bh." Hymen D. Da is. Saw the killing, it occurred just about sunset. Saw Cass Murphy at the gate after Long started. Ho did not stand there long; ho went In before Long got there. When he started af ter Long he got over the fence by the cherry tree. Long was about two or three rods on the other side of the bridge when Murphy got over the fenep. About the time Murphy crossed the bridge they increased thelrsperd.

A Lady's Opinion. Mi-. Geo, Gilbert, Bryan, Oh in, v r . ' Dfc. S. U. Hartman &Co.,t 'olum.ni-, Ohio: 1 commenced on the fifth bottle o: rv:r PEBUNA this morning, nnd ahouM jut ns soon think of doing without tm nu als ns without my medicine. I have been doctoring for about, four vears, and kept getting worse nil th time nnd was just giving up in despair when I Kot one of your books, "The Iil of Life."' I was in bed at the time. 1 read nnd rc-read your book and felt like trying your medicine. My folks thought there was no use in trying anvthingmoro. I wns too far gone, and might as well make up my mind to die. I told them PEKUNA was the medicine I needed, and I intended to try a bottle. It proved asuc cefc in breaking the chills, and if it had not done one thing more, I would have b en satisfied. But it has done more, and I feel like another person. Everybody that sees mc is surprised to see me looking so well, as they all thought I was dying with consumption, and now my own folks have us much to say for the FEKCNA a I. I recommend it to every body I sec. There were two of our neighbors in yes terday inquiring about the PerTJNA. I f-.ive Die one my book to read; told her to bring it back, as I prized it very high ly. The other got the name of the Pb uun'A to send to his son in Chicago. He is a telegraph operator My disease is snniething similar to Mrs. Milo Ingram's, though nothingcompared to being so bad There was a lump raised on my collar b:)ne, and it was a long time before it looked like opening. The doctor said he ,'ould have to lance it in a few days, but I thought I would attend to that myself, so I put a liltle fly blister on it and ii opened; then I put a poultice on and then s.dve, and kept the salve on all the time. It got so bad and spread upon my lett bhouldcr, and one place under my left breast. Then there were two places 011 my IiLad, one near the temple and one back of my ear that was just dreadful. No tongue can tell what I suffered. My head felt so strange sometimes. I thought I was going crazy. Since I have used tiie PERUNA (I don't use the salve any more) my sores healed up right away. And oh, what a relief it is to get around without chilling and havingto suffer with my sores. I feel like letting everybody know all about it."
