The antl- cigaret bill, which was gleefully referred to the house committee on ditches and drains after the house got through making fun of It, was recommended for passage by the committee.

These are questions which you must put to yourself, and the answer will be found in the report which you will make on Saturday. It's really wonderful what an active and widespread interest Is being tak- en in this event. Nothing can over- shadow it in the amount of public in- ;3t it is amusing.__-In all circles, in all classes, the high and the low even on the street corners, one hears this mammoth competition talked of. Everywhere it is the principal topic of conversation, and this is but nat- ural since this is the biggest and greatest enterprise of Its kind ever attempted anywhere in this vicinity. Saturday is going to be the biggest day of the race, and as to that there cannot be a shadow of doubt. Loving fathers, fond and adoring mothers, admiring friends and acquaintances are, rooting for their own particular favorite, are working every minute and are getting results that" will prove fairly astounding when converted in- to votes. In Sandusky and through out the country, there is the keenest kind of competition for new subscrib- ers, and it seems certain that the Star-Journal will add many hundred new readers to its lists by Saturday night, while those who are forth their best efforts will reap an advantage that will put them very much to the good over those who are not.

Sohenk, on trial for fifteen days, charged with poison- ing her husband, John 0. Schenk, will go to the jury today. Prosecutor Handlan concluded his argument this afternoon and it was expected the case would reach the jury by 3 p. m. A verdict is not ex- pected before tomorrow although some who have followed the case closely predict a speedy verdict. Attorney Boyce, for the defense, continued with his address to the jury this morning. Boyce was even more bitter than the two preceding attor- neys in denouncing the witnesses that 1raa- Mr Dan Philips was called a "human worm" and his testimony referred to as a "traitorous action." Boyce then turned his guns on Lundy Wilson mak- ing out that his testimony for the most part was improbable. He also repeatedly called Dr. J. W. Myers a liar, declaring Mvers had testified that he had refused to let Mrs. Schenk have arsenic because he had heard she was giving Schenk lead when at the time il was not even known Schenk was being poisoned. Prosecutor Handlan began the clos- ing argument at 11 a. m. His minute talk was dramatic in the ex- treme. At times he would come closp to Mrs. Schenk and point his accusinelv in her face. Mrs. Schenk never looked up from the table during the whole speech. At other times he would talk over to the iurv box and speak confidentially to the jurors. "She can't look tho juror's in the face" exclaimed Handlan once, com- ing close to her and pointing his fineer in her face "She never can and she never will" Bovce made the closing argument for the defense.
