"During the Jack Daniels trial at Indianapolis, when "Remus was being held an a witness, George Con* uors, a Remus associate,, and I were with him 1 rine 'night in December when«John 8. Berger of Los Angeles came into the room and said George, your wife and Dodgo are now down on .the fourth floor having a' high ball party'," said Rogers. "Remus leaped from his chair as if he* had -been shot, shrieked and dashed for the. door, i ' ^ 1 i- "Connors and I oyerpowered him and" forced him back into his chair. ''Remus , raved for ten or fifteen minutes. - He upbraided us in a high f&lsettO voice for not perm'lUlns him* to go and defend his honor, "He talked wildly, struck 'at vis, and then ^calmed 'down and bncame tranquil 'and apologetic. Then he had a bad attack of nervops prostra« tion." . ,-r v Whiskey Contract in Dodge's f Writing A contract alleged to fiavo b^en in the handwriting of Franklin L. Dodge, Jr., fo,r disposal* of several hundred barrels of whiskey owned J,y~ Remus was read to v the jury. Rogers identified it yesterday 'as having been one of the subjecto of a discussion between Remus ,and his wife' here several months before he' slew her. , ' Remus Paid His Expenses '' The prosecution tried to regain ground today by showing that John B. Marshall of Juneau, Alaska, farmep government official In the territory and at St. Louis, Mo., had been maintained here at Remus' expense for more than a month. He was an important defense witness. Marshall, a special government attorney in the Jack Daniels whisky warehouse case at Indianapolis, in which. Remus testified for the government,' yesterday 'added his opinion that Remus was insane. ,. Today he admitted that he left Juneau three days after ' he hod read Rem,us had shot and killed hie wife in Eden park here. He left, he said, oven before /a request came from Remup. There, the prosecution sought to show, his bill was paid by Blanche; Watson, Remus' secretary. Marshall admitted he remained there only a few days and then went to Remus' $750,000 mansion here. For the last month he has been back downtown at another hotel where his expenses have been paid by others. Denies Conspiracy Conference. Mrs. August Bruck, wife of- a witness of yesterday, testified that she, with her husband and another man, had been ^v|th ^ Remus at the hotel SJnton here the night before Mrs, Remus was slain. The proSecutloij has maintained that at a conference at that time and place Remus, Miss Watson, George Klug. a Remua chauffeur and George Connors, a Remus adherent, entered into con- splracy with the execution of Mrs. Remus by Remus aa the objective.

That sounds r likfc 'the veriest bromide,—but It isn't': 'A' low perspective especially characterizes the modern things. One is^oxrected to sit on a cushion, or lowjstool, Or at the very highest on 4 benph lower than the average chair, v Wh'ch is eighteen inches from-the* flexor. s For this purpose theTf are'lovely gay cushions to sit'on',—and a tray . ,$695 (along side of an unustial shapa; with ^. mirror top ahd^feet, that bring it the-- least Ibit* higher than the cushions. • - she may enjoy a flew wrought iron-Mand that holds three pots at different heights. The shape suggests a" huiky and vigorous- sunflower, but is paint' ed red,. Bottles filled with colored "water ere made into lamp's and having bright pleated shades, fit irt very well with the modern effect. !A Very new and lovely thin* In the way of a light was held by a kneeling figi|r6,in, pottery on an onyx base. 'The clouded glapn she held upright reminded you of a calla ll)y> in its center was a flame- shaped white electrio globe. The effect was at once dignified ani moist- unusual. If you have friends who like glass, you.w'ill find some very excellent things Awaiting your selections. For the hostess" there is a punch bowl with glasses to match, The punch bowl Is hig\ and has a dome-shaped lid. , At one side is a notch- for, the handle of the ladle to, project. TJhe bowl and glasses, are painted with sprays of flower*. A handsome tray completes the set. For one who'en- Joys the sun room or porch, there are several kinds of.,lemonadtj sets. A' basket tray holds-the pitches with glasses set around it'and has h high handle over all,, so thta it may be carried easily. .These sets come in different colors, rose, amber, green ahd so on. In the sante part of the store, intricate arrangements of £lass beads are made for gifts,— peacocks and pheasants and birds,— such odd birds that never were. are things that make one catch one's .breath at some of the Jewelry shops. Mere ag*ain the ancient and'modern fife sharply contrasted. If ( the one to whonvyou atje gMng, care's"* for old'things, you will find the Jewelers have collected some of fhese for you. Little sets are available, for instance a necklace, a pair of earrings and a brooch, that match, and Were made for tho belle of, 1780. Some times a pair of bracelets are included. , The 'modern things have much charm and great beauty of workmanship and design. SoraO of them attain a delicate frested effect by setting tiny diamonds In platinum. There s are so many things from which to choose,—rings, pins, hat ornaments, bracelets, watches, blocks, cigarette coses and so on. "Just What I Wanted! 1 Jewelry for'personal adornment has been influenced strongly by fashions in dress. Simple hats have- called for greater variety in hat Ornaments. Wide bracelets are worn. Pin»- are used for the shoulders ttr hip, where formerly bar pins were used in the open collar Of ghlrt* waists. Pearls fit in with so morty kinds of costume sthat they have littd great popularity. Consider tWe one on whom yov are about to inflict your gift, (Alas, som» ( gifts are ,an infliction, aren't they!' It makes one perfectly tftolp to have to say "thank you" for *hem). To give that very thing io the most fun of all. May you succeed Speaking of beads, if one id able in pleasing each of. your friends is to give Jewelry'for one's gift, there'I cur'parting good wish for ycilt' '^ - Mr.^ Coolldge Turrts Crusader let the meeting, Orrin Webber, 750?

There are delightfully weird grotesques from Austria. Some of these have no more serious purpose in this world than to be laughed i at. Others are ash trays or incense burners.
