that she had died about an hour
Filled with anguish he made hia
way to the death chamber, where,

The two Mason Jar caps has been examined. Upon examination the metal of the
new Mason cap was found to be pure zinc. The small pin holes in the old Mason cap
were undoubtedly caused by the action of vegetable acids. As a result the fruit in the
jar must have been greatly contaminated with poisonous zinc compounds.
1 regard the use of jars with zinc caps as very Unsanitary and even dangerous.

Portland, Sept. 15. The third
trial of Congressman Williamson
and bis codefendants in the federal
court is nearing a close. District
A toi-ney Heney informed the court
this morning that the prosecution
wouLd conclude its case today.
Counsel for the defense expect that
not more than a day will be requir
ed for the presentation of their evi
dence so that arguments to the jury
will probably begin on Monday.
In important respects the case
against the defendants has been
materially strengthened since the
former triale. Some entirely new
evidence has been adduced and sev
eral of the witnesses have testified
much more fully than before. Two
of them have acknowledged that
on the former trials they colored
their testimony in favor of the defendants.
How far the defense will be able
to offset the gains made by the
prosecution remains to be seen. It
is expected that all three of the
defendants will take the stand but
what additional testimony will be
ottered is not known.

For many years Hazel Dean be

sent flowers to bedeck the grave.
Explanations followed the recog

had buried the memories of friends,
even of her daughter.
"Come with me, mother," the
daughter asked last night.
"No, child, I cannot," Mrs. Dean,
replied, and Hazel, her head bow

of friends, and was taken from the
