Dr B F Ketch u in was at Manehes
ter last week as au expert witness
the case of O. M, father of Helen Lin
coin vs. Lottie and George Guild for
sn assault which si claimed to hav
resulted in death. The parlies are
from Rupert, the girls were musicians
and church organists and there was
jealousy between them and one eve
ning as Helen came out of the church
Lottie and George, who was then her
beau, etoqj on the sidewalk and
jabbed her with the elbow in the low
er part of the i-hest as Bhe passed, and
repeated the operation further along
on me roan before they got home,
Helen complained that night of severe
pains and though ehe was out the
next day, she died in about a week,
and her father sued for 810.000. The
doctors who attended her called the
di tease pneumonia and the claim of
tne defense was that it is a conta
gious disease and she caught it from
her brother who had it about the same
time. The plaintiff's exnerts.of whom
Dr Ketchum was one, claimed it was
pleuro-pneumonia, or involving the
membrana sue, and that it was devel
oped from the innamation caused by
these blows, giving virulence to the
micro-organisms that exist in a largo
percentage of people. Their contention
was that the disease is only infec
tious instead of contagious. It was i
royal battle, scientifically, but after
the evidence was nearly all in, Jury
l.eray of Keadsboro was taken sick
with the measles and it was put over
another term. Barber and Waterman.
