John Gray claims to have the cleanest stock of dry goods in the State of Indiana; quality, of goods he handles and the length of time he has been in business.

The bride has many friends in this city who wish har joy. Yesterday morning before Judge McConnell in'the circuit court began the trial of Martin Shaffer for the murder of Edward Lowry at Walton on the 29th of September last. The case attracted much attention and the court room was crowded, all day, a great many spectators from Walton being present. A large number of witnesses have been subpcened and the case will probably consume an entire week. After some little delay the rollow- ing jury was impannelleil: Henry Long, Le*vi Burton, Wm. R. Kin/ic, Wm. F. May, Jesse Loser, L. H. McKaig, Herman Pranke, James P. Conrad, John W. Snell, Robert Foust, Joseph DeMoss.and Robert Shields. The defendant is represented by Dykeman, Wilson & Taber, and a vigorous defense will be made. The State is assisted by M. D. Fansler. ' The first witness was Ransom Ice, the proprietor of the saloon in whose door the fatal affray took place. Ice recounted the difficulty between Shaffer and Lowry proceeding the fatal meeting in the door-way. Witness stated that the men met in the saloon in the morning, and both being some- somewhat muddled with drink, began a quarrel which terminated in a passage of blows, but no damage to either. The trouble was renewed later in the day, and the two men grew so boisterous that they were ordered out of the place; both had been drinking steadily all day and were decidedly under the influence of liquor. About 7 o'clock in the evening they were put out of the saloon. Shaffer shortly returned and said to witness excitedly, "I've give him hell this time." Witness saw something bulging from Shaffer's coat pocket resembling a slung shot or ( stone tied up in a handkerchief. Lowry was carried into the saloon in an unconscious condition and did not rally, ' Witness saw no blows struck. The evidence of Mrs. Bell who with little Gertie Doran was approaching the saloon " when the fatal blow was struck was largely circumstantial. GENUINE Red Letter Sale.

It was almost dark and she could not recognize the men at that distance in the dusk: could not tell whether- the person delivering blows held a stone, or club, or merely struck with naked hand. On closer approach recognised Ed Lowry as the prostrate man; did not recognize the assailant. Little Gertie Doran is thirteen years of age and gave her testimony in a remarkably straightforward manner, being- neither affected by the strange court scene with its crowd of people nor the perplexing cross examination. , She related what she saw on that evening in the straightforward, simple manner of a child and 'Dykemati's most skilful cross questioning could not make her deviate from her original story or falter in her narration. She was with Mrs. Bell walking along the street; when about forty feet from Ice's saloon she heard the sound of a blow struck and saw a man fall ia front of the saloon and another man fall upon him and strike him two or three times: could not recognize either of the men; the assailant might have had a rock in his hand, but in the dusk she could not see it; plain-, ly saw the blows struck; heard no noise or loud talking proceeding the blow; was frightened by the occurrence; when they reached the body it was alone; the man who did the striking had disappeared. Dr. Arthur Hermann who conducted the autopsy on the body of Edward Lowry introduced expert technical evidence as to -the cause of the man's death. • With the ghastly upper part of the broken skull, with its gaping fracture, in his hand, the doctor pointed out to the jury the effect of the crushing blow. When the brain was exposed at the autopsy a large clot of blood was discovered on the brain produced by the rupture of the .meningeal artery and about one-fourth of an inch of skull was imbedded in the brain, causing' hemorhage and disentegration of brain tissue. From the appearance of the wound witness concluded that it must have been caused by a heavy blow with some blunt instrument, the end of a club or stone; in his opinion the fracture could not have been caused by a blow, with a man's fist; men have dealt deadly blows with fist, but such a feat would be impossible by a man of Shaffers size a ad weight; nor was it probable that such a terrific wound could result from a fall on the pavement;,a fall from'a height could produce such a fracture, but falling from one's feet could not cause it. Witness stated the skull present in court was one of the thinnest that he had ever seen; had seen others as thin, .but none thinner, it . being .below the average in point of thickness. At the close of this evidence the 'court adjourned/until this morning at .nine o'clock, when further evidence will be presented. W.D. PRATT•*•• FINE JOB PRINTING • 217 5 219 FOURTH ST.
