Davis elevator office this week and take a look at the chunk of coal they have on display. It came to town in a shipment of coal last week and was so unusually large that it was placed on display and Mr. Davis is offering to give it to the person who guesses closest to what it weighs. It has not been weighed yet, so one guess will be as good as another. FORMER LENOX RESIDENT DIED IN MAINE AT 80 Mrs. Mary W.

The jury reported its verdict at 3:30 Saturday morning and was discharged. A story of the: trial up to Thursday night, as printed by the Bedford Herald last week, follows: At 3:56 Thursday afternoon, assistant prosecturor O. M. Slaymaker announced that the state rested in rebuttal in its attempt to prove that Ed Phil- Grove township farmer, . guilty of stealing 15,020 pounds of coal from the district. When court recessed, attorneys for the defense announced that they would probably place additional witnesses on the stand in rebuttal when court opened at nine o'clock Friday morning. The case, which has attracted county wide interest, opened here Monday with the greater part of the day spent in selecting the jury. When final selection was made, a poll of the jury howed the case to be in the hands of H. E. Allshie, Myron P. King, A. J. Gray, Leslie Glasgow, A. R. Huddle, Paul Gold- ng, Claude Reynolds, Ben Scane, Maurte Posten, George Barrans, Arthur Huer and De- 3tta Chambers. What is thought to be a precedent in a case of this kind. was set when attorneys requested that the jury be held together during the duration of the trial. What probably was the high spot of the entire case came in the closing minutes of Tuesday's proceedings. Basing their hopes on a contention that the title for the coal in question had not passed from the John Anderson Lumber company to the township at the time in question, attorneys brain Mount Ayr a couple of WILL ^sSuSLY INJURED Will Becherer was seriously nlured Monday while harness- a team * his fai ™ "^ One horse, that had not D een worked much lately, was eivmg him some trouble as he S !

Asks Impeachment State's attorneys late Thursday sought to impeach Philpott's previous testimony on thft grounds that his general truth- ulness and integrity were not bove reproach. They intro- uced five witnesses who testl- ed he was of ill repute. On the other hand, defense! ounsel had on hand a similar number of witnesses who de-> lared that Philpott's character was "good".
