After Typhoid
and Malaria
MR. C. J. SWANSON.
"Twenty years ago I was taken sick
with Typhoid and Malaria Fever, and
for a time was at the. point of death. As
soon as I turned a little toward the better
my physician prescribed Duffy's Pure
. Malt VVhiskcv, and it was just what I
! heeded to build me up. ! have also found \
it excellent for weak lungs and rltcuma- [
tisin. I am near the age of seventy, and
will always Contimit' to use it."?G. J.
Swanson, 5110 Michigan Ave., Chicago,
Ml. ,
Duffy Pure Malt Whiskey
not only serves to keep the bodily health
at the highest notch of -excellence, but in
typhoid and malaria, especially, when
tiiu bodily function:; arc at their lowest
ebb and death stems imminent. it is re?
tained by tho stomach when other agents
are rejected, and as a food and stimulant
sustains life until the crisis is passed.
While convalescing after fever it is the
greatest streiigtli-gtvef and body builder
I known to science. It is a wonderful rem?
edy in the prevention and cure of all luiig,
' throat and stomach troubles, and all wast?
ing and weakening conditions.
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is the
only whiskey that was taxed by the
Government as a medicine during the
Spanish-Amctican war.

NOT TO KEEP JURY TOGETHER
All Witnesses, Including Charles
H. Davis, Excluded Until
Called.
Times-Dispatch Bureau,
100 North Sycamore Street, I
Petersburg, Vt?, Slay G. j
At 10 o'clock this morning, the ease
of the Common-.veal th vs. Carler R.
Bishop, former cashier of the Appo
inattox Trust Company, against whom
are pending various Indictnienl-:,
charging the making of false entries
on the books of the bank, by means of
which money was unlawfully obtalneo,
was called to trial in the Hustings
Court. Willeox Willcox appeared
as counsel for the defendant.
The special indictment on which 'Mr
Bishop is being tried Is thut known
us No. 2, in which It Is alleged that
a false entry of $20,685 was made
on October 5. 1008. To this indictment,
on arraignment yesterday afternoon,
the defendant pleaded not guilty.
Kirnt Jurors Chosen.
It had been expected that much diffi?
culty would be encountered in secur?
ing a jury, on account of the wide pub?
licity and discussion of the case for
many months, but out of the venire of
twenty men summoned to totirt, ten
were nccepted by the -court as satis?
factory Jurors before 12 o'clock. To
several of these, however, the defense
excepted. Others of the venire were
excused for various reasons.
At 12 o'clock tlie court ordered an?
other venire of twenty men to be sum?
moned and took a recess until 1
o'clock. Tho questioning ol venire
men was very rigid. Not only were
they asked the usual questions by
the court whether or not they had
lormed or expressed an opinion as to
the guilt or Innocence of the prisoner,
whether tney were prejudiced for or
against him. whether they could give
him a fair and impartial trial, but they
were questioned closely by counsel
for the defense as to any relation or
association with the bank and Its ofll
cers and directors; whether they or
their relatives owned any stock in lite
bank, or had lost any money by It;
whether they had discussed the affairs
of the bank and formed any Impres?
sion one way or the oilier about it, or
had formed Impressions that It would
require evidence to remove. The ease
with which the llrst ten jurors were
secured was a surprise to botli sides.
Jury Empanelled.
The court met at 1 o'clock, and out
of the second venire soon a full jury
WD3 empanelled and sworn, as follows:
T. Et.ton Adkins, \V. A. Brockwell.
Krank T. Plummer. Charles II. Codsey,
Kenneth Ledbetler. Joseph D. Mann.
James D. McKcnney. Ro. E. Rrunot,
John B. Hubbard, John J. Nclins, James j
E, Goodrich, 13. A. Hain.
The Jury is considered a first-class
one in intelligence. All of the Jurors I
are men of high standing, and many ol
them merchant.*.
The defendant stood while the long
indictment, to which he had pleaded
not guilty yesterday afternoon, was
rend to the jury. The court stated to
counsel on both sides that they Jiad
tl>6 right to make an opening state?
ment to the Jury, but each side waived
the right.
Counsel for the defendunt asked that
the jury be kept together, which re?
quest the court took under considera?
tion. Indicating, however, that It was
not disposed to do so.
The court adjourned to 1 o'clock,
when the pros-icntlon began its evi?
dence.
The court reconvened at 4 o'clock
and proceeded at once to the hearing
of the case. Counsel for the defense
withdrew their request to have the
Jury kept together during the trial, as
It was learned that the trial would last
longer than had been anticipated. Wit?
nesses for the prosecution, to the num?
ber of fifteen or eighteen, were called
and sworn, and at the request of the
defense were excluded from the room
until they should be called to testify.
Tills was made applicable ulyu to wit?
nesses for the defense, and among the
witnesses for the defense is Charles
Hall Davis. Jointly indicted with Bishop
for false entry.
Protents AcnlnM Exelllnloii.
John R. Lee, counsel for Mr. Davis,
protested against his exclusion, con?
tending that, though not a defendant
In this particular proceeding, lie was
deeply Interested in It as a Joint de?
fendant, and as such should be allowed
to remain. Commonwealth's Attorney
Mann held that Davis was a stranger
to this proceeding, and the rule of ex
elusion should apply to him as to other
wl i nesses.
The court regretted that the motion
to exclude Mr. Davis had been made,
but having been made; he uiust be ex?
cluded, though not a defendant in the
ease.
Common w"calth's-At torney Mann Introduced
In evidence the act grunting the charter of
the Petersburg Development and Loan Com
p.-iny. the predecessor of the Appomaltox
Trust Company, the certificate of the change
of name of llie Development and Loan Com?
pany to Unit of the 'Appomaltox Trust
Company, filed fn the office of tho Secretary
of the Commonwealth In January, 1502. This
wag established and corroborated hy the. first
witness. William A. Worth, the secretary of
the Appomattox Trust Company since Its or?
ganization to lost May. Mr. Worth, as sec?
retary, kept the record books df- the cor?
poration and the proceedings of tho stock?
holders' meeting*, lie testified to the chango
of name and the acceptance of the change
by the Development and Loan Company; to
various entries In the record honk, to tho
election of officers and directors?among
them Charles Bali Davis. He did not give
any testimony relative to overdrafts or al?
leged false entries. His evidonce was main?
ly preliminary, the value of which will ap?
pear later In the trial.
Rank Kmployr. Testifies.
John L. Oraves, nn employe of the Appo?
mattox Trust Company, was the second wit?
ness. He was irr jt'PJ the Individual book?
keeper, and his duly was to keep arcounL of
deposits on the chocking system. He kept
the Individual ledgor "B." in which Mr.
Dnvis's account was kept. He testified that
on October 5, 130S, there was an entry of a
check for 110,655 t0 Mr. Davls's credit, and j
that on the morning of that day Mr. Davis j
was overdrawn In his account $2",0.1f?. Tho I
deposit sljb for this doposlt was exhibited!
and put In ovldenc*.
A. L. Hawse, of Richmond, who was a
dlreotor of the bank In IOCS, waa put on the'
stand, but he knew nothing of any over- i
din ft? or alleged wrongful acts, and was
excused.
To-day's proceedings were comparatively
unimportant as compared with what the
proceedings will be to-morrow, when many
witnesses of prominence. Including directors
of the bank, will be put nn the stand and
matters of Interest developed.
History of Case.

COMMITTEE FINOS
CHARGES- FALSE
Mrs. Wiley, Head of Holston
Orphanage Officially
Exonerated.
[Special to Tile Times-Dispatch.]
Bristol. Va., .May 3.?The executive
committee of the hoard of trustees of
the fireonevlllo (Tenn.) Orphanage of
the Holston Conference of the Meth?
odist Episcopal Church. South, has
officially exonerated Mrs. IS. K. Wiley,
the venerable head of the institution,
agulnst whom a warrant was issued
some weeks ago, charging the cruel
whipping of a hoy Inmate. Tho report
of misappropriation of funds Is shown
to bo absurd. Sentiment is very largn
ly in favor of Mrs. Wiley, and the re?
port of Hie committee is a source
of gratification to her friends.
Tho executive committee of the
board of directors of the orphanage
met 1 nspccial session at Knoxvlllc,
April 12, 1911, to consider widespread
rumors concerning matters at the or?
phanage. While the. committee did
not have an expert accountant to go
Into a detailed examination of ac?
counts, books, vouchers, etc.. they
found nothing In the case to Justify
even a suspicion that there had been
any misappropriation of funds. Such
talk was declared to be libelous and
outrageous.
During seventeen years of service, without
a dollar of salary, Mrs. Wiley mot urgent
accounts out of her own private funds to tho
amount of 11.000.
"Concerning alleged cruel treotmont. of
children It is only right," the committee de?
clares, "that the public should know that
Mrs. Wiley's provocation was very great, and
that the is?pplng administered to a boy
twelve years old did not break his skin.
Putting two boys In Jail over night was
herola treatment, and may possibly have
been extreme, but the case was desperate,
and ordinary corrective measures had been
exhausted."
