I.I. Thn "narrowlnp; de tails of the brutal murder of Alary Grout, who was mercilessly shot by her infurlHt- , ed uncle, WMham Fairbanks, were rovlew I ed to-day in all their gnii-somn aspects by those who were first at the scene of the crime. The events that Immediately trans plred w-ro described and tho dotalh of tile autopsy given by thn physlclins in attendance. In addition to tills the Inter est was Intense when Airs. Leon law rence', who lived In tho house with the dead trlrl for several months previous to the crime, testified as to what she knew of the' i-lallons between tho murderer and his victim. There was a little discrepancy In ths testimony of Policeman Houghton aril that nf Dr. Osgood, who was the physic ian in attendance directly after the shoot ing. Policeman Houghton was the first witness called to the stand, and he gave the' relative' position of the dead girl as she lay with her head and shoulders on the second stair of the doorway and ''ie man beside her on the ground at the right He also told of carrying Fairbanks rfnd Grout to the parlor and of the positions of the dead girl and Fairbunks In mom. Dr Os'jnoe-. In his testimony t.dd nf the incriminating statements ii- hail ' ard Fairbanks make to Deputy Sher iff Alexander a few hours Hfter the shooting, v hen Alexander said "Wlll.wliy did you do this?" to which Fairbanks replied "because she wronged me." Then again, when Alexander asked him if he was not soriy. lie only leplled "yes, sorry that 1 did not finish' the job." CNCONSCIOFS THRKK HOURS. Dr. Osgood, also told of the medical assistance lie rendered, giving the In grediants of th medicines administered, and told of the condition of the man, which he said was that of unconscious ness up to about eleven o'clock which was nearly three hours after tho shoot ing took place. Ibis latter testimony In part dlcredlt el the tistim.inv of Policeman Hough ton. The , rnas-examlnntton of Pollce- j nun Houghton went to show that the answers of Fair an1 given In reply tr. e.uestlons prh)oii'id.d l.v him (Hough ton) were given under duress and that Fairbanks had eVerv reason to believe that he was under an est. The effect of Dr. Osgood's testimony tendered to show that the mind of ''a.rbanks was un balanced, due In part to the bullet wound which ho Inflicted and the medicine ad- mnlteied after the shooting. The next witness railed wis Dr. H. II. Stone of Hurllngton. who is director of the State laboratorv of hygiene and s nlso State pathologist. Ib- related details of the autopsy the position of the heart walls of the rhest and luns nf the dead girl. He had a portion of the chest walls through which the bullets passed and the heart which was pierced. He testified thnt the bullet was found at the base ot tho roots of the rlgl t lung t 1 that It had pierced the aoita in reaching its destination. He said the bullet took an upwards course of IA degrees and that death was instantaneous. A map was shown, presentlnT a diagram of the house, the different rooms, the relative position of each person tn the room, the door way and door steps and tho front lawn. TKSTIAIONY OF MRS. LAAYRKNCK. The sensational climax of the day was reached when Mrs Leon Lawrence testified that while she lived with Mrs. Grout previous to the murder, Fair banks frequently visited the house and remained very late. She said that there was a kitchen nnd two bedrooms down stairs and a bedroom upstairs which was occupied by Airs. Grout, that the approach to the room upstairs was through her. (Mrs. Lawrence's) room, that each night Fairbanks remained there shu would leavo Airs. Grout and Fair banks In the kitchen and that she did not pass through her room to go upstairs on those occasions. Shu nlso said that Fairbanks had en couraged the girl to go to Ashuelet, N. H , to live with him where lie told her they would keep house. She also said that Airs. Grout agreed to no. The "lay closed with the cross-examination of Mra. Uiwrenco, who told about the various visits of Fairbanks. Fairbanks still maintains his spirit of utter Indifference nnd sits In the couit room with his hands over his eyes the grcnter part of the time. He takes no Interest whatever In any of the proceed ings, and does not take his eyes from the door. He Is severely afflicted with rheumatism nnd seems to have a severe cold, lie appear.-) to bo In a state border ing on collapse. YOUNG FARM HAND HAS DISAPPEARED.
