HIS NEIGHBOR (Continued from page 1) It was nearly 7 o'clock when Scholl again reached the Winifred farm, and as he approached the gate Falkstraw appeared in the road, armed with a club. Falk straw then declared his Intention of braining Scholl, and advanced toward him in a threatening man ner, whereupon Scholl fired onr shot from a .38 caliber revolver, which pierced Falkstraw's left side in the region of the heart, causing death In a few minutes. Permitting the body to lie where it had fallen, Scholl then notified two of his neighbors named Smith, who sent word to Colbert. He then went home and told his wife what he had done and then concluded that it was the best thing to get away. Scholl's story Is being verified to day by Deputy Prosecutor Donovan and Deputy Sheriffs Doak and Sweet, who went to the scene of the crime at 9 o'clock this morning in an automobile. The officers think that further investigation will reveal a case of deliberate murder, carefully planned, as the outcome of personal hatred of lonp standing. Scholl worked for Falk straw five years ago and cliams that the latter at that time and thereafter circulated evil reports about him and that the enmity thus aroused had never subsided. Besides his wife. Scholl has an adopted son named Joyce, age seven. He lives on a homestead, on which he expected to complete his five years' period of residence and secure a title next fall. Prior to going to the farm, five years ago, Scholl worked around Spo kane, coming here from the Pa louse. He came to Washington from Minnesota, where he was em ployed in the pine woods. His birthplace and old home is Colum bus. Ohio. Falkstraw was a bachelor and owned a farm on which he had re sided for 18 or 20 years. He bore an excellent reputation and the sympathy of the neighboring ranchers was with Falkstraw in the differences between himself and Scholl. His ranch was one mile from that of Scholl. In speaking of the tragedy Scholl says: "I was headed toward camp No. 2 of the Consolidated Lumber Co., two miles away, with a load of vegetables when 1 met Falkstraw and he ordered me not to again pass through the farm of Winifred. 1 said that It was my regular way of getting in and out of my place and that I would go through it on my return. He then said: 'If you do I will blow your head off.' "After I met Falkstraw the first time 1 went to two young fellows from Spokane who were working on a ranch near there and borrow ed a gun from one of them. I told him I had to go home through the mountains and was not armed. The gun was a .38 caliber and had four BARTLETT-CARVER'S Great July Clearance Sale commenced this morning. It will continue on Sat urday and right on to the end of the month. Many and precious bargains will daily be laid out for the selection of the people of Spokane. This clearance sale is different from most Spokane sales. AVhile other stores have sales all the time, this store has them only at rare intervals, for the fact of the matter is that special sales are not generally needed in this store, as the regular prices here are generally less than the sale prices of other establishments, and when a sale is adver tised here it means, then, that our sale prices must be much less than other sale prices, and at this sale right now we are offering merchandise that you need; no job lots or damaged goods, but merchandise that is taken from our regular stocks is offered at about cost prices and in many instances at less than cost price. As a firm and as individuals we guarantee this state ment, and as business men who know what they are talk ing about, we tell you plainly that you can buy for less here than in any other store at present open in Spokane. You should see our show windows. There are real bar gains there, and by all means you should see our interior stock; the values will surprise you.

I put the gun in my left coat pocket, as being left handed I could more readily grasp It In case of need. "When within 30 rods of the gate leading into Winifred's ranch I saw Falkstraw coming toward me in the road, on foot. He was smok ing a pipe and had a pall In one hand nnd a tamarack club, three feet long, in the other. " 'Now I've got you,' he cried, and placing his stick, pipe and pail In his left hand, spat on his right hand and then seized his club. When within about 10 feet of me he said: "'Now I've got you. you . and I'll beat your head off.' "I told him to get out of the way. but as he kept on advancing I then fired. The bullet pierced his left side near the seventh rib. After being shot Falkstraw fell and then, sitting up, said to me: " 'You've got me, you ,' and then dropped over dead." Scholl admitted to Deputy Prose cutor Donovan that he could have NEW DEMAND NOTED\ A fresh demand for Success was noted this week.

Inquest Monday. The body of Henry Falkstraw was brought to the Gilman under taking rooms In Spokane this morning. An autopsy on the body will be held by doctors, under the direction of Coroner Schlegel, this afternoon. The Inquest will be held by the coroner at 10 a. m. Monday. Coroner Schlegel says that the dead man had no weapons on his person and that the stick he car ried was more like a walking staff than a club. He says he has learned that Falkstraw was on his way to a neighbor's to get a bucket of eggs when he was killed. The coroner, does not take kindly to SchoH's plea of serf defense, say ing that a man on horesback has ample opportunity to escape if as-1 saulted with a stick by a man on; foot. tional Coal sales at 75% were high for this month. Hypotheek was hammered down to 4 cents, with plenty of stock in sight around 4%. The delay in starting the lower tun nel on the Lucky Calumet is re sponsible for a further decline.
