and he sent at the same time two notes
:or l4tsl) each. and alse three certificates
of stcsk of tift) shares each. which he
understu. i were to hi held by the Bill
irgs estate and returr.ed from time to
time as the amount paid on the notes
justified. lite said that he sent these
papers by express at the direction of
defendant. and that the drafts and notes
represented the purchase price of the
stock. A letter signed by himself as
cashier was enclosed in the express
package, and no copy Af that letter ap
peared to have been tmade in the bank
letter copy book. As to the election se.
pease items. the witness said that the
moneys were paid out. but not on ac.
Scount of any election expenses that they
a were paid month by month as interest
i n the county deposits; that wherever
the entries were in his own handwriting
witness had paid tover the mone)s. He
,. knew nothing of the arrangements of
this transaction except what defendant
- had told him. and all the entries he
made and payments he made were at
the direction of the defendant. Healso
said that the item of $1,(Nxo. entered as
paid Merrill on account of back salary,
was also for. interest on account of the
, county funds.
The croetexamioation elicited the
amount of the county bala.ces in the s
bank at the end at the end do each e
month, and that it could not make any
differeoce in the end to the bank wheth
er this sum was charged to expense or
icterest account. He showed in whosm
handwriting each entry was in the book c
on this subject, and said that his ownI
had been trandered and was In the I
posmemson of H. F. Batchelor. though it
did not ebow upon the book at the
bank. He also teetifled that it was
Bookkeeper Harmon's duty to copy the
letters. On re-direct zaminatioan he
admitted that he wrote the letter to the
Bils estate, and that he himself s nt
it in ao zprems pecksge. ad that it it was
cusaomwry for him to put mch lettees as
be wished to have copies of upon Har
mo'a desk.

never told him that he tdefendant, was
borrowing the bank's money to pay for
the Stebbins stock.
Col. George Scheetz, a director testi
fled that he had never been informed by
the defendant that he was using the
bank's money either upon his own or his
father' esper for the purpose of paying
for the Stebbins stock, and that in a
talk with defendant at the Hotel Helena
in November last defendant had said to
him that of the moneys owing by him
to the bank he had ured about $,500 on
his dwelling house, about 3.,500 he had
paid to the Elentric Lght company.
2.,000 in support of his father's family, a
couple of thousand for charities and
612.000 for bank stock and the rest was
for interest.
E. W. Prosser testified that the indi
vidual indebtedness of defendant stand
ing in his own name at the date of the
suspension was over $40.000; that the in
debtedness standing in the name of J.
W. Batchelor was 612.300; that the in
debtednees existing on January 1. 1891.
of both of them was 812.700. and that
of this amount 61.540 was in the name of
his father J. W. Batchelor. and that the
balance was in the name of defendant.
Hte also verified the statements used by
the other experts. saying that he had
prepared it. being assisted in its prepar
ation by the witness. Leo Harmon.
The prosecution also offered a letter
from the comptroller, asking defendant
whether the J. W. Batchelor notes rep
resented his own indebted or wqre com
mercial paper, and the reply of the de
!fndant thereto, insisting that they were
of the latter class of paper.
The case for the prosecution rested
here. and the defendant begins the intro
duction of testimony this morning.
Dr. Mitchell's neautirl nlese Brness.
D)r.R Iox;1E. April 19.-Dr. A. A.
Mitchell's new heuse on Missouri aven
ue that promised to be one of the most
beautiful and hospitable homes in the
state. was burned to the ground this
morning about 4:30. One of the guards
at the state penitentiary, returning to
his home after his night's duty, discov
ered the fire and at once gave the alarm.
The fire company responded promptly.
but the building, valued at nearly
$0.,000. was doomed a structure. Dr.
Mitchell intended to occupy his new
home in the course of a month, and its
destruction is a great blow to him. It
was insured for $15.000. It is generally
supposed the fire was the result of com
bustion.

t tihe tprig
Nearly everybody needs a good medi
cine. The impurities which have ac
cumulated in the blood during the cold
months must be expelled, or when the
mild days come. and the effect of brac
ing air is lost, the body is liable to be
overcome by debility or some serious
disease. The remarkable success achieved
by Hood's Barsaparillsa and the many
words of praise it has received, make it
worthy your confidence. We ask you to
give this medicine a trial. We are sure
y it will do you good. Read the testimon
isles published in behalf of Hood's 8r
separilla, all from reliable, grateful peo
pie. They tell the story
"The value of petroleum to the
arts and eciencea is simply incalcula
hibe," said Walter Francis. a gentle
man who knows all about oil. "Of
ourse every one is familiar with the
chemicals that are separated from
the liquid in the course of its re.an
ment, but how few know that most
of the carbon used in electric lights
comes from the same source, or rath
er from the action it exerts upon
metal. Yes, sir, the edges at the pots
in which crde petroleum is reined
are now chipped aosad sold to the
