It was the first time Beulah Blnford has be m out of the jail since her arrest as a material witness the latter part of July. Paul Beattie has likewise been in Jail since that time, but he was on the witness stand on two different oc casions during the twelve days the taking of testimony lasted in tho trial.

The prisoner listened intently to the reading of tlie instructions and smiled when they had been concluded. J. M. Gregory began the argument for the prosecution at 10:55 o’clock. In reference to the alleged pew wit ness Mr. Wendenburg said: “V c have a strong enough case with out it," he said. "We could not get th"' man here for a couple of days at least, as he lives out West. But ve have asked him to come here, just the same, to see what there Is to ’iis story. i >f iurse, we have received, as ia usual in murder cases, many letter* from alleged eye-witnesses. This one, however, signed his name, and we find that he did once work as a farmhand at ~ place near the scene of the mur der. We are going to investigate it irther, but you can take the story now for its worth." TRotLEY VICTIM MAY RECOVER. ELIZABETH.
