i Both State and Defense Complete

Columbus. O, November 21.?Both
j the State and defense completed the
Introduction of evidence to-day la the
j first d?gr?e murder trial of Miss Ce?
celia Farley, the pretty State House
j stenographer, who la charged with
j shooting Alvln E. ZoUlager. an adver
! using solicitor. In a city park last stay.
I and the case is expected to go to the
I Jury aome time to-morrow.
I After having been on tue stand con?
tinuously for more than two days.
Miss Farley completed answering the
cross-examination questions of Prose?
cutor Turner shortly after the noon
recess to-day. She went from the
atanu eiymg und in a completely ex
I baustc-u condition from her long or?
j Prosecutor Turner scored heavily for
the stale to-day, when, upon severely
cross-examining Miss Farley, he forced
her to tell of her relations with Je?
rome wuigiey, the man whom she was
to marry, after their engagement.
Clearing the space In front of the
jury box for the second time during
the trial. Miss Farley again yren%
through the dramatic actions demon
[ stratlng the story of the defense of
j how Zollinger was "accidentally shot."
This time Proeecutor Turner acted the
part of Zollinger, instead of Miss Far?
ley's attorney, Mr. Allen. j
I Under the guidance of the prose
\ cuting attorney, who claimed In his
opening arguments tbat It would have
been Impossible for Zollinger to have
been shot in the manner claimed by
the defense, the stenographer gave an
even more dramatic description. !
While holding the revolver to the1
prosecutor's head at the same distance;
she claimed It was from Zoi lingers
head when It was discharged, the dls
tar.ee was measured by sttorneys and
found to he seventeen Inches.
When Miss Farley again took the'
w,tness chair after the demonstration,
she was trembling and very nervous.
?he broke down and sobbed, and had
j to be helped from the chair to the wit?
ness room, where she was allowed t?j
rest for a few minutes.
The prosecution then began its re
buttal. and Introduced an expert, who
declared that he had made experi?
ments, and that powder marks could
b* seen from human flesh from a re?
volver twenty-six Inches distance.
The defense had previously Intro?
duced an expert, who declared that
powder marks could not t>e seen on
flesh from a gun held more than six
Ir.ches away. Attorneys for both the
prosecution and defense have agreed
to limit their final arguments and
pieas to a short time.
