GIRL'S LOVER On tbe IUUMI In Oonlbp Warder Trial. Aledo, Ilia., Dec. 18.--The first witness of Importance called In the Dunlap case yesterday was Frank O. Owen, the young man to whom Allle Dool was engaged. Owen's testimony elicited the fact that their engagement hud been broken in Au. gust, 1901, owing to his habits, but that later he was given a sic months' trial, and then the engagement was again broken. The attorneys for tho defense Introduced letters written by Miss Dool to Owens. The state proved that the letters were received before the trouble between him and Mis* Dool and that statements therein had reference to differences In her own family. Miss Blanche Coleman testified that Ml*» Dunlap came to the Coleman residence on the Tuesday following the day of Miss Docl's death, and that Tona sold: "I got one piece of candy that wa* very bitter and I «plt It out;" that she went home *lck and after being notified by telephone that Allle Dool was dying. Nannie Thompson told of a visit of Mr*. Dunlap and the defendant to their house and of Tona saying she got gome poison and also that It would also remain a mystery how the poison got In the candy. Miss Thompson stated that as they were leaving she said: "I 'am so sorry for you," and that Tona replied, ··Oh I am all right." Dr. Browning, who waited on Mis* Dunlap, testified that she did not present any symptoms of strychnine poisoning. SPRING VALLEY HONORS MITCHELL Spring Valley. Ills.. Dec.
