When Attorney Smith, chief counsel for the defense sat down in his chair after pounding at Ijhe slight, nervous, youthful cousin of the accused, the damaging story related by Paul yesterday stood practically unchanged. For two hours Smith had raged at the witness shaking his fingers at him, waving the record in his face and fired questions full of vituperation and sarcasm.

I wouldn't do it over again for a mil- lion dollars! But, anyway, she never loved me! She only married me for my money! I'd like to know how Those cut theie was a No. 6 cartridge used in that gun." Paul Beattie said that he had found Henry on the porch of his father's home and had said: "Things look mighty black in this in the university to pass various requirements, including ability to I swim _ and give '-first aid" in i drowning, or be dropped from me I roster.

The proposed long distance race would be held in connection with the St. Louis aeroplane meet September SO to Oct. 7 and would be the greatest air race ever held. It will be made open to all makes of aeroplanes and Mr. Roberts believes the aviators will be enthusiastic over such a race while he himself does not anticipate mucii trouble in raising the big purse for tUe race. The course as outlined ia. only "They are simply money-getters for one avi- ator. There would be no hippodrom- ing in a real race with a large number of starters. The time that these cross- country exhibition flyers remain m the air each day is ridiculously short. At the aviation meet atXhicago, it was demonstrated that the length of time an aviator can remain in the air is limited only by his supply of gaso- line. The best talent would enter a long distance race of this kind and I believe it would be a far greater suc- cess than the recent long distance cross-country face in England where but two aviators finished."
