DIE AT ANY TIME
Natural Causes Might Have Been Re-
sponsible For Cause of the
By Associated Press.
Kansas City. Mo. May 5. That Col.
Swope was in ill health for months
prior to his death and that natural
causes might have been responsible
for the convlusions of Thomas H.
Chrlsman and Margaret Swope was
what the defense in the Hyde trial at-
tempted to prove in open case today.
Sylvester Spangler testified that Col.
Swope was so enfeebled for a year be-
. fore he died that he fainted several
times the millionaire says Spangler
told him the day before his death that
he might die at any time. From Dr.
E. W. Grochling the defense elicited
the information that either uremic
poisoning typhoid fever or meningitis
would result In symptoms shown by
the three Swopes when in convulsions.
On cross examination the physician
admitted the attacks also resembled
cases of strychnine poisoning. The
witness was in the hand3 of the state
when adjournment was taken at noon.
Kansas City Mo. May 5. The most
important witness for the state in the
trial of Dr. B. C. Hyde was called late
yesterday afternqon when Dr. Victor
C. Vaughn the toxicoligtBt f Ann
Arbor Mich. was called to the stand.
The state has but; one more witness
to examine Mrs. .Logan 0. Swope.
Searches for poison made by him
alone and also with the aid of Dr.
Walter Haines of Chicago Dr. Vaughn
said resulted In the discovery of
twenty-six thirty-thirds of one grain of
strychnine in the entire liver of Col.
Thomas H. Swope. He also said that
he found signs of cyanide of potassium
in the stomach. There was a trace of
strychnine in a kidney and a sugges-
tion but not a positive proof of
cynlde in the stomach of Chrisman
The toxicoligist also said that he
'found strychnine in the contents of
the stomach of Margaret Swope. He
also testified that there was cynide on
the capsules said to have been thrown
into the street by Dr. Hyde the night
he departed from the Swope home
December 18 last.
In reply to the hypothetical ques-
tions regarding the convulsions suf-
fered by Col. Swope and Mias Mar-
garet Swope Vaughn said that in his
opinion they had been caused by the
administration of some convlusive
poison. Strychnine or cyanide would
produce such symptoms he said.
Judging from the Investigations of
tragedies said the toxicoligist he did
not believe that Col. Swope died from
apoplexy or uremic poisoning or that
Chrisman Swope died from menin-
gitis. Claim Politics Control Faculty.

Says Medical Schools Teach Theories.
.Topeka Kans. "May 5. Modern
medical colleges came in for a hot
roast at the Kansas Medical Society's
convention today. Dr. C. C. Goddard
of Leavenworth declared that most of
the present day medical schools did
not teach anything a doctor ought to
"They teach theories" said he.
They give the student no knowledge
of the rudiments of medicine. A
young man when he graduates from
one of them is not fit to doctor a cat."

Department of Justice Comes
Washington D. C May 5. Bills by
Senator ' Owen ' and Representative
Carter providing for the transfer of
the several federal jails in eastern
Oklahoma to the counties In which
they are located probably will be pass-
ed at this session of congress. The
department of justice has agreed to
the plan and as Chairman Bartholdt
of the house committee on public
buildings and grounds also is favor-
ably disposed toward the proposition
it is almost certain that some action
will be taken In the near future.
If successful the federal jails at
Muskogee McAlester Ardmore and
Ada will be transferred to Muskogee
Pittsburg Carter and Love counties
Indications are that the -sundry
civil appropriation bill as reported
from the house committee will not
carry an appropriation for the further
maintainance of the Piatt National
park at Sulphur This It Is thought
which authorizes the transfer. If the
state unless the house and senate re-
fuse to follow the lead of Chairman
Tawney's committee. . The prospec-
tive action of the committee will be
taken over the protests of the Okla-
homa congressional delegation.
There is a law on the statute books
which authorizes the transfer. If the
Tawney scheme carries it remains to
be seen what the state will do in the
premises. No money is available to
continue the work after July 1 unless
the state should come to the rescue
it is feared that the park will be
closed temporarily at least.
The people of Sulphur and the con-
gressional delegation are up in-arms
against the plan but have been forced
to contend against an unfriendly com-
mittee from the start.
Senator Owen has succeeded in
having the; senate committee on In-
dian affairs for the adjudication of
the Creek equalization matter by the
court of claims. The court is author-
ized to render a judgment if the claim
of the Creeks against Uncle Sam is
found to be equitable.
THOMT PAY $800
FOR SLANDERING MUSICIAN
Joplin Mo. May 5. Patti De Van
Rose a Webb City music teacher was
awarded $800 damages from Walter
Tholborn postmaster of Webb City
for alleged slanderous remarks con-
cerning her character made by Thol-
born to their mutual acquaintances.
The case was bitterly contested.
No attempt was made by Tholborn
to substantiate the truth of the state-
ments attributed to him by the plain-
tiff. Neither did he deny making
them as alleged. His defense was
based upon the proposition of per-
sonal privilege. He said he had a
right to tell his friends what he
thought were facts concerning the wo-
man who had frequently visited at his

George Post a discharged employe of
the postoffice was the instigator of
the suit and that its motive was re-

They are not made on one model only; there are nine models. There is a model exactly right for you
Model "D" the most advanced model for 1910 is an example of the highest art in corsetry. It is
designed for the woman desiring absolute freedom from restraint of diaphragm and chest. Worn
with the GOSSARD bust confiner No. 54 it gives the perfect outline of a corset having bust of us-

You may be told elsewhere that Gossard front-lacing corsets ared not adapted
to your figure; but a fitting is the test. Try one and see. Others may of-
fer you a front-lacing corset of some other make which they claim is just as
good. A careful comparison will convince you that the "just as good" kind
is never so satis factory as the original. The difference between the original
and the imitation Is the difference between success and failure. Do not ac-

SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE TO
GO TO CENTRAL AMERICA
Washington May 5. It is said that
the steamer Venus which cleared
from New Orleans Saturday night
supposedly laden with munitions of
war for the Madriz army in Nicaragua
sailed under sealed orders to put In
at Port Belize British Honduras
where there is no cable to change Its
peaceful dress of merchantman for
the war paint of a fighting ship.
Backed with what they believe is
evidence of such a plan the repre-
sentatives of the Estrada faction in
Washington are preparing to make
their representations to the United
States and ask to have warships off
the Nicaragua cost watch the vessel.
Senor Castrillo Estrada's represent-
ative will ask to have the ship seized
if it puts out from Port Belize for
action mounted with guns which lay
in packing cases in Its hold when it
cleared from New Orleans.
The estrada representatives and the
diplomats of those Central American
republics which are friendly to the
revolutionists cause backed by a crew
of lawyers keen on- international law
are watching every move seeking the
slightest pretext upon which the
United States conld be called upon to
They assert it -was their show of
legal backing alone which prevented
the- Venus from shipping four hundred
adventurers hired to- Ught in the
Madriz army as members of the crew
before the ship sailed. The plan was
abandoned they say when the watch
being kept was discovered.
