Guy 'Bin-Its, daughter ol Harris, identified Richardson in court this morning as one of thc bandits who entered the Harris home and terrorized the occupant- while attempting to force Harris to open a safe. The safe failed to yield anything but the robbers took B small sum of mmiey off Harris. Tlr woman's husband ant! Harris also testified but Mrs. Burks was the slate's star witness. Two pistols, which the state sought to have Identified as guns used in the robbery, and a blue white polka dot handkerchief am an old checked cap were exhibited. Mrs. Burks only said, how-aver that the guns looked very muc': like weapons displayed by the robbers and that the handkerchief was similar to one worn as a. mask and the cap like one worn by on of the bandits. Police Chief A. p. Gwyn testified that the articles ex- liibited were found at Richardson's house after Mrs. Burks had furnished him with a description of the guns and articles and after she had identified Richardson on viewing him at police headquarters. Richardson took the stand in hi.' own defense this afternoon. Hc testifted that at thc time of thc Harris robbery, he was at a Bir Lake dance hall, 16 miles west ol here, the same defense as iis->d in the McCntston trial. Other witnesses substantiated his story although their testimony as to th; time he appeared at the hall varied wltr testimony of officers who wer" al the d&nce hall.

The accident occurred as Abbott started across the highway from a parked truck.

OSCEOLA, Nov. 9.—Possibh defeat of the 3-mill county road tax, which is the principal source of rev- enue'for tne -maintenance of Mis- slsslppi county roads and bridges, was Indicated in returns from 20 out of-'52 precincts tabulated.Irra '.oday. All available returns, mostly from Ihe Osccola district, gave 735 for :he tax and 1,397 against. The en- lire 311 voles cast In Ihe Whltton MX were against, the .levy, and in several other' large boxes the tax failed of approval. Cfcunty Ju:'ge Zal B, Harrison said thai should the levy b? defeated, it would leave the county *'lth practically no funds for roai and bridge work, as the county urnback fund from the state gaso- ine tax must go to retire Improvement district bonds in the Ofcesla district. Defeat of the levy would •esult in great carnage to the coun- y road ss'stcm, xhlch would have o. go without repairs or improvements until the measure Is vofd on again. The heavy vole against the tas Is attributed partly to the fact that many voters were unaware of th: lature of the tax and voted k?nln!t t with the idea it was simply another new lax proposal. Judge Harrison said that if the ax defeated the county roac" fund stood to lose approximately $35.000 annuall!', the amount levlr Jgainst property assessments Ready To Soil Our?
