Clayton Erb. at his country home, ' Red Gables, near here, on October 6. The prosecution closed its case late yesterday afternoon after occu- fijring three days In presenting evidence n which It attempted to show that Erb had been deliberately murdered. - The defense in outlining Its case contended that Erb had treated his wifa brutally; that he waa constantly quarreling with her in order to force her to leave the bouse, and that In a violent quarrel -Erb waa shot dead by Mrs. Belsei, practically by accident and not by design. The defense alleges that Mrs. Belsei came to Mrs. Erb's rescue when she saw Erb with a revolver In his hands. Mrs. Erb fled to the bathroom, while Mrs. Belsei struggled with the husband. On the witness stand Mrs. Erb said: "My husband was killed while trying to kill me and my sister. He attacked me, and when I fought him off he again tried to kill me. When my sister came to my aid, -he tried to kill her. Then when she wrested the revolver from him he was finally ahot. If the captain had not attacked us like a madman, he could not have been hurt. Even if he had gone. to bed after the frst attack there wouM have been' no shooting, but he returned again and again to fight ua. Hla killing could not have-been avoided." .

HISTORY OF CONGREGATION With ant honorable career that extends over; four decades the Third Christian church will celebrate its fortieth anniver sary to-morrow. When the church be gan its career It was organized In the Matheslan literary hall in the old Northwestern Christian University, now Butler College. The original college building still stands On the old campus, and is now used and occupied by the Physlo-Medl-cal College, though for a long time It was the . property of the Indianapolis Orphans Home. Forty years ago College avenue was a mere lane, which extended out Into the country a naif mile beyond the city and terminated at the big wagon gate and turnstile, which was the entrance to the campus, and was located where Thirteenth street crosses College avenue to-day. The congregation met for a time In the college building, until It had completed Its modest frame building, which became Its home and was so used until the year 1487, when the more modern and commodious brick was built on the adjoining tot at Thirteenth street and Ashland avenue. Both buildings are still used by the present conrreaation. thou if h it has en- tirely outgrown their capacity, having a membership of about UMt. ( - Had Prominent Ministers. It is rather remarkable that all three of the . buildings which have been occupied by this congregation still stand on their original sites, and are in a fair state of preservation. The church has been served by many well-known and prominent preachers. The first regular minister was t-Illah Goodwhu of more than local fame In his dsy. John C. Miller, father of trie present i-.leutenant-Oovernor Hugh tor for rive years, during which time he waa also nrotessor In the lbl deoart tnent of the university. In fact, many of the occupants of this purplt have been- men of especially marked scholarship. The Rev. R. T. Matthews was called from his pastorate here to become professor of theology in Drake University. The Rev. J. P. Rowllson became president of Hiram College, and the Rev. Burris Jenkins became president of Butler College, and later of Kentucky University. The Rev. C. B. Newnan was for a long time identified with" Cotner University, waa the general secretary of the National Educational Society of the Disciples. The longest term of service by any one man was that of the Rev. D. R. Van Buskirk who left the stamp of bis power and ability upon the church. When the Northwestern University changed Its location to Irvlngton and became Butler College more than thirty families removed with it to that suburb. This loss was felt keenly by the little church which had been organised with seventy-two charter members, less than six years before. The congregation has grown steadily, however, until it Is known as one of the largest In the city. Its work is almost institutional in character, t Largs Force of Workers-It employs a larger force of workers than Is usually found among church outside a metropolis. The pastor, the Rev. IL O. Hill, is assisted by Miss May Cunnlngahm, the church visitor, and R. W. Lookablll. office and financial secretary. Miss Elsie Gordon Is the church's missionary in India, receiving her entire support from the funds raised by this congregation. . Besides the regular and ordinary services a class in the study of the Emmanuel movement meets on Thursday afternoons of each week, and a class in Christian sociology meets on Thursday evening. Dr. Josiah Strong, Of New York, says this is the largeat class of its kind In the United States. , Prof. R. J. Aley. the newly-elected State Superintendent of Public Instruction, has accepted the position of teacher for the men's Bible clasa. i The anniversary services will be held at 10:30 Sunday morning. Various ones of the old members will give addresses and relate Incidents of earlier days. The charter members present will occupy specially reserved pews. - So far as can be ascertained the charter members are Mrs. Sue Brown, A. C. Shortrldge, -James Norris, the Rev. J. R. Robertson and Mr. and Mrs R. N. Cosby. . Novel Feature of Program. . A novel feature of the program will be an offering from all present of one penny ,for each year they have been Christians. The proceeds of this offering tvlll go to the relief fund of the congregation, and will be used In charitable work among the poor sad needy. j The congregation Is considering the erection of a new and modern church building which will be equipped -with every convenience necessary to a wider Institutional work. The pastor, the Rev. H. O. Hill, will give the first of a series of eight sermons In the evening, which will be along the line of Emmanuel and new thought movement. The dates and subjects are as follows: Jsnuary J, 109. "Humanity's Highest Honor"; January 10, "As a Man Thlnketh"; January 17. "The Will to Be Well": January 24. "What All the World Wants': January 21. "How to Have Personal Power"; February ' 7, "Wisdom's Waya'; February 14. "How to Be Happy''; February 21, 'The Way to Wealth.'1 Services begin at 7:30 p. m. i JURY GIVES MINER $10,000. Similar Damage Suits Pending Against Vandalla Coal Company. Special to Tb Indlananolla News.) BRAZIL, Ind., January 2. The verdict 3f $10,000 given by the Jury In the Temm damage suit against the Vandalla Coal Company at Greencaatle yesterday afternoon greatly pleased about twenty miners of this city who were Injured with Temm In the Rosebud mine -of the company two years ago. The suit was for 115.000 damages, but the verdict was even larger than the miners expected. The case was fought with unusual vigor by the large array of legal talent on both sides, as it waa realized that the result of thia trial would have a strong bearing on the other cases filed. , . The men were injured in an explosion in the mine, but the company held that it was not lisble because, it said, the explosion was of gas over which they had no control. The miners ssld the explosion was due to fine dust In the mine, and that the explosion could have been prevented had the company sprinkled the mine as the law requires. , .- INDIANA MARRIAGES.

IT AS REASONS FOR HIS BELIEF Superstitious because his son had been shot on the seventh dsy of the month, and had died on the , tuirtewnth, and having always been unable to break away from hoodoo numbers, O. C. Bagans, 234 North New Jersey street, refused to accept city vehicle license No. 13 at the offlce of the city controller to-day. After the license for a one-horse buggy had been issued by Deputy Ctty Controller Alfred F. Coos, Mr. Baans consulted with his wife as to the advisability -of accepting the license and asked Mr. Cook to exchange It for one with another number. "What Is the matter with that tag; Isn't It good?" asked Cook. . . It was thsn that Mr. Bagatis explained to the deputy controller that he was superstitious, and particularly of the thirteen proposition. In explaining the cause for his strange feeling In regard to the number, Mr. 11. gans said: Figured In Business, Life. "It bas always figured In my married and , business life. Our son Edward, a bright , little chap, was shot, by accident six years ago fa Terre Haute. He was carrying a Flobert. rifle by the mussle, when It was discharged, the bullet penetrating his abdomen. On the UUi day of the month he auccumbed to his Injuries, just a few days before be would have been thirteen years of age. . - "I held a building and loan account at one time which waa numbered 13J3, and once In Terre Haute I purchased 11.3U) worth of city lota located at and near 13 South Seventh street. The venture was not entirely successful for me." "When I noticed the number of the license Issued to me this morning I asked to have it changed, for I own a valuable horse and I do not care to have him Injured, as I believe he would be had I accepted the license first offered me. I took No. 14 . Instead, and noT' have no misgivings as to the safety of my. horse. Seven and twenty-three are the, other two numbers which I fear." Mr. and Mrs. Ba trans, with their family, moved to Indianapolis four months ago from Terre Haute. 1 LODGE AT THE BON AIR. Senator Goes to Augusta to Confer with President-Elect. AUGUSTA, ' ' Oa..
