Authoress, Planning African Trip, Cer
tainly Is Overoloking Nothing
That Can BeMde Useful.
Using the by-products Is the most
characteristic feature of distinctly
modern Industry. How thoroughly
this principle hus been applied to lit
uiuture conies out in an Interview with
a charming nnd uhle Chicago uovellst
wlio Is taking her five-year-old daugh
ter Into Africa gorilla hunting with
Carl Akeley's party.
The nullior In question will make the
trip to collect local color, the basic
material In the fiction industry. The
first proiluct will be a novel, with a
movie to follow. Hut not all the local
color which an African trip Is bound tn
yield can he used In a novel, so the
uutlior plans to work over the wnste III
a travel hook, which will find a ready
kale to that small hut choice public
r,lli has wearied of Action. The third
nnd rather special product will be the
story of her small daughter's reaction
to the adventure, which is expected to
make another Interesting book,
Kncli of the three books Is a sep
arate product of the basic local color;
each will satisfy a certain special
need and reach a public of Its own.
Between the fiction readers, the arm
chair travelers and the students of tho
chlM-nilinl,, this author pretty well
covers the ok -buying classes. Con
sidering how little daughter will prob
ably react uncn she sights her first
gorilla, the "child reactions" book may
fairly be called "utilizing the squeal."

John Brumfleld testified that his
brother, the prisoner, told him dur

Upon re-direct examination the

Another llrolhcr Testifies.
William V. Brumfleld, another
brother of the defendant, was called
to the stand to testify. This brothor
formerly resided in Rosvburg but at
the present time is employed in Min
nesota. He said that his brother,
who is on trial for his life, was a
weakling until until he was ten or
twelve years of age. He stared that
he was very nervous and easily ex
cited and often delirious at times of
excitement or during periods of
stomach trouble.
He corroborated the statement of
John Ilrumfleld that the defendant
was a sleep-walker. He said the man
would often getup and pull the cov
ers off the bed and would also often
talk in his sleep. One tinre he said
Brumfleld walked as far as the barn
and said that something was chas

and of him being knocked senseless
at both times. -
The severe headaches of the de

In Hoseburg In 1911 he remembered
one time when the man was suffer
ing from a bad headache.
The witness merely repealed the
testimony of John Brumfleld in re
gard to the Insanity of his brother.
In regard to his uncle's ease he said
that he did not know whether he
was Insane or not and that the uncle
never did tell where he went and
that he did not know whether It was

did not want to tell where he had
