I On tnklnit the stand the physician nld he Is araduale of the Vnlver. ally of Miehlnwn. He said that he 1 had gathered some blond from tlu log near which a cap. supposed to mark tha plA'-e where Armour's head atruck. was found. He snld ho had examined thin blood and then he toll In detail what examinations he had made. He had found, after disaolv. lng some of tha aliened blood In ace . tic aept and examining it Under a mlc. Irnscoiiy, that fine cruciform crystal, typical of blond, had been apparent. Inscribing the shot found. Ir. Ward 'said that he believed the shot must have entered between the third imd seventh verihrn. He explained that trom the fourth to the sixth verte brae la that portion called the neck. He said he believed that no shot could have entered from the front; they had penetrated from the hock of the nek. He hsd taken all shots from the ver tehrae ho had mentioned and handed them over to the proper authorities. What would be the effect of shot In a human being at tha place In a body where these shot were found?" anked tUstrlct Attorney t'rlst. 'They would kill In a Very ehort time,1- the witness answered I VKilm May Have Unarrrtl. On cross examination, by Mr. Meno. hnn, .he witness admitted that he was not prepared to say Just how long it would have taken to kill a Man thus wounded. It was possible that a human being could linger for a certain time before death ensued, he thought. An examination of the shot In shells Identified aa those carried by Armour on hia fatal trip and of the shot round In his body showed that the shot were evidently of the same size. A fresh shell waa opened and the shut counted; there were M of them. "What has been your experience w:ih gunshot niind?" asked Mr Ilenchnn. j "Mure than the average. I should ssy." replied the w itness, u ho a.l.leil he hud be-n called upon to treat probable j:. gunshot wounds In the pan few jcars. rive of these were from a, shot-gun ho explained. lie snld one of hia patients had been shot la the link, another in the hand, third In the sioiid.-r and a fourth In the leg. , The patient shot in the neck s'cm ' ed to inferos! the attorney for the de fense, who asked the do-tor to tell the clrciimstancea. I "The mHn was turkey hunting," re plied the physician, "and gave u tur key call. His comrade mistook this call for one from a turkey and shot him. The shot wna fired at a dia tance of 75 to 100 feet. This man hii'i scleral allot in his neck. Thty wrer scattered over a space from the hat band to a point below the collar." I Asked how far from the muxzle of a shot-gun the shot begin to spren.t or fan out, the witness said thut he could not reply to that query as nn expert, but he Judged they begin to .

H" Ward answered, "Is this gun a choke bore?" "Apparently hot." "The shot would spread more. then, trom thl gun?" "T." "Is any significance to he nttm-hed to the fact that ynu do not find any hot .above the fourth vertebrae and none below the sixth?" "It gives an Indication how far the gun waa awav." "Why were no shot found In the akitll?" "llccaiiHC the gun waa pointed at the neck and- was not far enough away to spread out," "Why do you gay thnt thee shot yon found would cause death?" "Mecause they were fired itt the aplnnl cord." Itceith by llcmnrrluiirc? Toward the conclusion of the ey. gmlnntlon, when Mr. i'rlat aked some Oiiestlons. Mr. Ilenchnn objected on the ground that counsel wis nuklnit thn doctor to make guesses without any circumstances on which to base replies. , "1)111 any shot pass through this coat?" asked Mr. frlst. holding up n .eoal found near the gun in the (llor I letn woods. The physician examined the cont and replied thut he saw rev. I era I shot hole n the collar. Pr. Ward offered consolation to those who might feel horror nt the suggestion that Armour lay helpless In the niorlet.1 woods to he devoured alive by coyotes and other wild ani mals, saying that experience proves alien animals seldom. If ever touch a body while still living, on further questioning the physli inn expressed the opinion that an exnmlnntlon of Armour'a shirt, which showed many shot perforations, led him to believe the entire charge of .'.4 phot hud en tered his neck. Home of the shot hiul struck I he shirt collar and some h.nl gone ulioie It. he thought.

Att"rney Henehan nsekeil the v. li nens whether it was not pori.tiLc tor one of the six ahota found lodged in the vertebrae to niim the si'inal c n d. In tV discussion that ensued I i Ward told the attorney that he. th Httornei. was not Soilding the nel. used to Indicate to the (lily the posi tion of the spinal cord, as It should be held to demonstrate lis location In relation to the shot fired. The do., tor pointed out the possibility of a shot missing the spinal cord, hut also pointed out the probability that the henty charge of allot fired Into the net k of the man in the Olorlctrt woo.', had been exceedingly effective, pro ducing almost instant death.
