We conclude in this issue the tes

ginning where we left off on i.
Wo also givo a synopsis of tho ar
uments in the case.
Cross examination of Albert F.
isor resumed by Mr. Johnstone:
Have named cloks from whom I
"'"bougit goods at ). Hipp's store so I
far as I know. Staid in Newberry
jail last night and Mr. W. T. Hatton
tspent night with me. I am notary ]
public and I fixed up life insurance i
papers for him. Receipt dated Sep. I
tember 25. Can't see anything un- I
-,der the "5." Mr. Johnstone asked I
io jury to see if dato on receipt is ]
12" or "25". Did not notico that i
25" was written in different ink
with heavier strolce. Receipt was
writton in offico of ). Hipp on 215th.
As far as my knowledge goes was I
drill of military company at Po
maria that day. Mrv. Hatton is Cap
tain of company and was thero too. I
Iave identified all goods hero that .
know wore in my trunk. Mr. Sherard
s hero to testiliy to somo goods I
bought from him. Mr. Shorard is
here to testify that I havo bought
goods from him bit did not buy ainy
. of these from hin direct or indirect.
Pav! Mr. Hatton $135 at one time on
mIortgage. Had it deposited in D.
,%-Hipp & Co's safe. Had it thoro for
two or threo years. At time I paid
mortgago I had about $125 or $126.
I put it there as safoty as I am
guardian for one or two of my niecos.
I used it when I needed it. I use it
and4. IaY interest on it myself. Could
not tell you how long it had been
there. I thought you asked me how
long I had been depositing money
there. I did not care to use it be
cause I did not know when I might
be called on for it. My nieces are
10 yors old and younger. When I
used it I know I could replace it
mighty easily. Whein I gave mort
gage was in spring and did not use
it then for I was afraid could not re
placo it. Did not take up original
paper becauso Mr. Hatton said it
was not there. Don't know anything
about harness. Do not recollect hay
ing been in my brother's room for
four Years. It was during the fruit
season that my brother was ill. Was
sick four or live weeks. Ho staid, in
iroom down stairs to left of firoplace.
