The taking of the testimony commenced Tuesday. The prosecution based its caso completely on circumstantial evidence, the same as it did at the first trial. After Auerbach was convicted at Baldwin several months ago, the pre siding judge, while sentencing the prisoner to life imprisonment in the Jackson penitentiary, characterized the evidence as incomplete. He Has one of the first to sign a petition re questing the supreme court to grant AuerbacTi a second trial. Fisher was killed while hunting with Auerbach near Star Lake last fall. The latter claimed the tragedy was the result of an accident. At the first trial an effort was made to link Mrs. Fisher's name with that of the defendant. Cold. WcrikLuncs. Coughi. WciikThroats.

"succci:ss.M A two-reel story by Forrest Halsey, containing numerous strong points and some weak ones. The hero de clares ho would sell his soul for suc cess and on this is based a modern version of the Faust episode. A char acter, representing the devil, pursues the hero all through the picture. Irving Cummings is at his best in this, and Irene Hunt gives a strong imper sonation of the poor girl artist. The theater scenes are appealing and also the dinner scene, but the idea of toasting the great failures ' of the world seems to us a too decided jump from romance to realism, and rather upset the unfolding of the plot. The picture, however, has much to com mend it in spito of its rather peculiar ending. At the Surprise theater today. . AT Till MAJKSTIC.
