Defense Announces in Court That
They Have no More Evidence
AN ADJOURNMENT TAKEN UNTIL MONDAY
D strict Attorney Jerome Announced
That He Had No Wit.ieszes in
Rebuttal Available and It Was at
His Request that the Recess
N-w1 York, March 9—The trial of
Harry K Thaw Krhlay Was adjourned
until Monday morning at l o: .'it*
o'clock, after attorney Delmas had
announced, upon the opening of court,
that the defense had roncitiuea Its
testimony. District attorney Jerome
stated that he had no witnesses
ready to proceed with in rebuttal and
at his request, an adjournment w..s
tjken. This action was not unex-
|>o.tod.for Mr. Delmus served notice
Jate Thursday upon the district attor-
ney that the defense had abandoned
its plan of calling two more experis.
Mr Jerome did not consider the no-
tification as official, ana, so came into
court Thursday morning prepared to
listen to more testimony as to Thaw’s
unsound condition of mind.
The court session was opened with
all the usual formalities. Thaw was
bright and smiling as he walked to
hw lUace at the counsel table. His
I wo brothers—Edward and Joslah —
were in court, and he smiled a greet-
ing to them. The prisoner's arms
were filled as usual, with the big
brown envelopes containing his cor-
When Justice Fitzgerald had as-
c«u led the bench and Clerk Penny
had called (he jury roll. Mr. Delmas
arose and uttered in a low voice the
three words, "The defense rests.”
Mr Jerome thpn said he would have
to ask for an adjournment of the case
until Monday morning.
'When court adjourned last Wel-
nesday evening.'' Mr. Jerome said,
' I had no reason to expect other than
tnat I would be confronted this morn-
ing by experts who would oe called
upon to answer a hypothetical ques-
tion whi«-h Mr. Delmas was to frame,
■extemporaneously. Thursday evening,
ii iwever, Mr. McPlke called upon me
with a letter from Mr. Delmas, saying
the defense had chanced Its plans and
would call no more witnesses.
‘ Under the circumstances, I must
ask for an adjournment as I nave no
There is not the slightest objection
mi our part,” said Mr. Delmas.
Justice Fitzgerald then ordered the
adjournment until Monday.
District Attorney Jerome said he
wia not prepared to add anything
further to his statement of Thursday
night that the evidence he will hate
to offer in rebuttal will he liefore the
jury by Wednesday evening. He
added that the ease should go to the
Jury by Friday next. ,
It was reported around the crim-
inal courts building afler the trial had
lie’ll adjourned that Mrs. Evelyn Nes-
tojt Thaw had been subpoenaed by
District Attorney Jeionie to appear
as a witne.ss for tlie prosecution In re-
buttal. No verification of the re-
port could lie obtained, however, 'i he
district attorney's oifice refused to
<»infirm or deny the story.
Mr Jerome's object In summoning
Evelyn Thaw as a witness is to jx-
truct from her, if possible, Informa-
tion concerning the letters Stanford
White wrote to her. The subpoena
is said to call for tiie production of
any such le'.teis Mrs. Thaw may have
in her possession. She already has
declared that she has none, the las;
fourteen received by her having been
turned over to her husband who gave
them to his attorney, Mr. Hartrldpe.
May MacKenzie was notified Frl-
d ty to bo on hand Monday subject to
i the'call of the prosecution. Mrs. J. J.
Caine also has been subjoenaed by
(he district attorney.
The sudden decision of the de-
f nse came after a conference of
Thaw's lawyers in Mr. Delmas' of-
fice late Thursday afternoon.
Tile cloBe of the defense was the
lostlniony of Mrs. William Thaw,
mother of the d^endant, and at the
conference, it is said, the attorneys
decided no better climax could have
been reached by the defense.
la discussing the case Thursday
night District Attorney Jerome was
' Will you go to the jury with the
case, or will you ask for a commis-
sion in lunacy?”
Ou the evidence as it now stands.
I will certainly go to the jury,” re-
plied the district attorney. "If there
la nothing between society and any
non who wishes to attack it but a
brain storm,” we iind bett r go back
to the days of the frontier and every
man take out a pistol permit.”

WHAT WESTERN CANADA DOSE.
Satisfactory Yields of Wheat and
Dundurn, Saak., Sept. 30, 1906.
Mr. W. H. Rogers, Canadian Govern-
My Dear Sir:
When you were at our place in July
I promised to write you what my
north quarter made per acre. You
will remember It was all sown to wheat.
Well, X finished threshing yesterday
and received from It an average of
43% bushels per acre—testing 64 V4
pounds per stroked bushel. The wheat
Is the best sample I have ever raised
—so uniform and even In size. You
may know it was a good sample when
I tell you that I have already sold 2,000
bushels of It for seed to my neighbors.
This year has been my best effort In
farming during my life. My wheat
totaled 9,280 bushels and my oats
If you remember I pointed out to
you a half section lying Just west of
our house and Joining my upper quar-
ter on the south, which I said I should
have In order to make one of the best
farms in western Canada. I am very
glad to be able to tell you that I now
own that half section. My ambition
now is to be able to market 20,000
bushels of wheat next year. If some
of those good, honest Hooslers could
iave been with me during the last two
weeks and could have seen the golden
grain rushing down the spout into my
wagon and then could have seen It in
great piles In my granaries, I feel sure
they would have been forced to
acknowledge there Is no better farm-
ing country In the world than this. I
may Just say that I have done all my
farming with eight head of horses and
one hired man except during harvest
and threshing. This year I proved to
my neighbor that the Hooslers, when
once "woke up," can raise grain equal
to the best Minnesota farmers. His
best yield was 42bushels per acre,
so you see “old Indiana” is holding the
ribbon this year.
Yours very truly.
N. E. BAUMINK.
How to Sleep In a Blanket.
There are a great many very com-
petent treatises telling you how to
build your Are, pitch your tent and all
the rest of It. I have never seen des-
cribed the woodman's method of using
a blanket, however. Lie flat on your
back. Spread the blanket over you.
Now raise your legs rigid from the
hips, the blanket, of course, draping
over them. In two swtft motions tuck
first one edge under your legs from
right to left, then the second edge un-
der from left to right, and over the
first edge. Lower your legs, wrap
up your shoulders and go to sleep. If
you roll over one edge will unwind
but the other will tighten.—Stewart
Edward White In Outing.
Proof of Merit.
The proof of the merits of a plaster
la the cures it effects, and the volun-
tary testimonials of those who have
used Allcock's Plasters during the
past sixty years is unimpeachable
evidence of their superiority and
should convince the most skeptical.
Self-praise is no recommendation, but
certificates from those who have used
Allcock's are the original and gen-
uine porous plasters and have never
been equaled by those who have
sought to trade upon their reputation
by making plasters with holes in
them. Avoid substitutes as you would

Senators Much Aliks.
Senator Simmons, of North Carolina,
and Senator Taliaferro, of Florida, look
enough alike to be twin brothers.
They are about the same size and
build; eadh has a heavy crop of hair,
which is kept closely trimmed, and
their short, stubby mustaches are
much alike. Both have dark cyeff
and there Is probably not two pounds
difference In their respective weights.
If It were not for the fact that the
Florida senator has a few more gray
hairs in his head than his North Caro-
lina colleague It would be almost im-
possible for the senate employes to
tell them apart.
