Are you lame every morning? ro you
drag through the day with a steady,

to blame. Hurry, worry, lack of rest
and a heavy diet, all tend to weaken
the kidneys. You back gives out; you
feel depressed and suffer headaches,

Kidney Pills. Home folks recommend
them. Ask your neighbor!
Here's a Pensacola Case.
W. O. Tarter, prop. Porter's Ba

to suffer considerably with my
back. The lumbar muscles of my
back were lame and sore and sharp
pains would often catch me across
the small of my back. My kidneys
were in a bad state, too. Doan's
Kidney Pills relieved this trouble,

McLean ,of Fort Worth, Texas, leading ' spondlng to the increase from other
counsel for the defense, insisted the
question was proper and that how the
entire family accepted the matter should
be brought out.
11. H. Hrown, special prosecutor, in
terjected that the state was "willing for
the Jury to know how they took it, the
old woman and all."
Mr. McLean was on his feet instantly
and asserted that Mrs. Smith, who had
been referred to as "the old woman,"
was the equal, in his estimation of the
mother of any lawyer in the trial.
A roar of handclapping greeted his
words. The court was thrown into a
furore and' was adjourned one hour. The
spectators were warned the case would
be tried without their precence, should
another demonstration take place. Clara
Hamon said:
"I don't care what they do with me,
but they must let my poor old mother
alone."
Breast and Hands Were Bruised.
Mrs. Walling and her 14-year-old
daughter, Phyllis, testified that on the
morning after Hamon was shot, Clara
Hamon came to their home at Wilson,
IS miles west of here, to bid them good
bye before she left Ardmore on instruc
tions of Hamon and his business 'mana
ger, Frank L. Ketch, and that her
throat, breast and hands bore bruises.
Mrs: Smith testified that her daughter
came to her four days later at El Paso,
Texas ,on her flight into Chihuahua.
Mexico, the bruises still remained. Mrs.
Smith testified that Clara is 23 yean
of age. as the defendant herself did a
few minutes later.
That had been onjs of the state's chief
points of contention, it being sought to
prove that she was a mature woman
when she took up her association ten
years ago with Colonel Hamon.
