. v 1't I, i2 THE MORNING JOURNAL-COURIER, THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, ,1908. SNEERS YS. PROOF Littleton Declares Evidence of Insanity Has Not Been Refuted. ATTACKS STATE'S METHODS rica to the Jury Devoted to a logical Consideration of Evidence Introduced. New York. Jan. 29. Martin W. Lit tleton. chief counsel in the defense of Harry K. Thaw, today asked for the acquital of tils client upon the ground of insanity, declaring he could not con ceive how, In the face of the evidence, the Jury could render any other verdict. The serious and sincere evidence of the defense tending to establish the Insanity of the defendant, Mr. Little ton declared, has .been answered only by the sneers and insinuations of Dis trict Attorney Jerome. These sneers and Insinuations, the advocate assert ed, were not the competent proof that the law required the prosecuting au thorities to produce once the insanity of the accused person was brought into dispute. He repeatedly urged upon the jury to remember that in a case of this kind the burden of proof rests wholly upon the state to prove the eanity of the defendant beyond all reasonable doubt. ' i Mr. Littleton warmly defended Ev elyn Nesblt Thaw against the attacks of District Attorney Jerome. He said he could not understand what she had done, what great crime she had Com mitted, considered in the light of all Bhe had confessed herself to be, that the prosecutor should transcend all the 'rules of propriety and decency and at tempt to destroy her when in the next breath he was ready to "coddle and hug and vouch for the testimony of such a scoundrel as Abraham H. Hummel the very vermin of the New York bar." The address of the defending- attor ney occupied all of the dayfs sessions and District (Attorney Jerome is ex pected to reply tomorrow. It he should conclude at the morning session Jus tice Dowling will charge the jury dur ing the afternoon. If Mr. Jerome's ad dress should extend well into the after noon, however, the case will not go to the Jury until Friday morning. Mr. Littleton urged today that there should be no compromise. He asserted tha t ,1f any doubt exists In the minds of the ' Jurors they should .resolve It in favor of the defendant and acquit him. He ; begged that they be not misled by the district attorney into voting for a ver- , diet of conviction in some lesser de gree than that of primary murder. Any verdict of guilty In the case, it is said, will carry with it the assump- 1 tlon that It was rendered on the ground of the insanity of the defen dant, whether or not the Insanity clause is added. ,The plea of not guilty in the case carried with it the speculation that the defendant was In sane at the time the crime was com mitted. , , Mr. Littleton's argument was force ful and impressive. He refralrled from t appealing to the passion of the Jury men and devoted himself to a logical, earnest and serious consideration of the facts as adduced In evidence. He attempted to place no crown, of glory upon the brow of Harry Thaw, and said he asked for him no more con sideration than the average American boy had a right to demand from the . average American Jury. The speech was crisp In epigram and the short sentences were filled with the pith, with logic 'and the quality of appeal. The Jurymen followed It with Intense Interest and It was generally conceded : that Mr. Littleton ha I left District At torney Jerome a difficult task. "I confess to you, gentlemen," he eaid, "that I do not know what the district attorney has meant In this case. I cannot fathom how he feels he has discharged his burden under the ; law and I am waiting with much Im patience to hear what facts, what evi- i dence, what circumstances he will eug- ' gest to you as having been presented ; by him to show you that this defendant Is sane beyond all reasonable doubt. "Sneers' and insinuations are all I After suffering for seven years, thiswomanwasrestoredtohealth by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Read her letter. Mrs. Sallie French, of Paucaunla, Ind.

When a man finds the true food value of a preparation like Grape Nuts, it Is no more than neighborly to tell It to others. "I should feel responsible to a de gree," writes an Ohio man, 'for imih human suffering were I to withhold from others the knowledge of the ben efits I have personally derived from .tne use of Grape-Nuts as an article ' of food. j "Two years ago I began to fVel a general tendency to collapse had fre quent .bilious attacks, was troubled with constipation and vertigo, also ush of blood to the head causing temporary blindness. "Liver and stomach In bad condi tlon, appetite and sleep became very Irregular, memory began to slip away. legs became shakey and I found It necessary to use both hands In drink ing from a cup. "Prvious to this time I was in the habit of eating all I wanted of what ever was set before me. When the trouble came, I tried medicine with oui neip, dui i graauauy grew so weak I had to give up a lucrative gov ernment position. "Whatever I ate disagreed with me, until my wife began feeding me on Grape-Nuts food. At first I ate it sparingly until I found it did not hurt me, then gradually Increased the amount as my appetite demanded. For many months I have virtually lived on Grape-Nuts, fruits and Pop turn. "The result is gratifying in the ex treme. None of my former difficulties trouble me now. I am eating, sleep ing, action of bowels and kidneys, everything goes like clock work no dlzxy spells, no congestion of brain, no lack of memory, no trembling of limbs.

The reports from Old Saybrook that almost the entire force of men working for the Shore Line Trolley Co. have been discharged about 65 who have been employed In construction work have given rise to the rumor that the road had been sold to the New Haven Railroad Co., but an official of the lat ter company Is authority for the state ment that there Is no foundation for the Btory.
