Testimony corroborative of the story told by Henry Clay Beattle. Jr., that a bearded highwayman klled his wife with a shotgun, waa Intro duced by the defense In the Beattle trial today, when W. R. Holland, who lives In 'the vicinity of the Midlothian Turn pike, where the murder occurred, de- cleared he had seen a bearded man with a shotgun there fve hours before the trsgedy. It was the first move of the defense after the prosecution rested Its case at noon today, to establish the verac ity of the prisoner. Besides Holland's statement concerning the man with a shotgun. Eugene Henshaw.' a farmer whe travels the Midlothian Turnpike dally, testified that he saw a atrange man of about SO yeara prowling about on three different days before the mur der. Prosecution Holds Back Card. It la reported tonight that the prose cution Is ready when Its time for re buttal arrives, to put rn the stand the man who passed along the railroad tracks where Holland said he saw a man with a shotgun, and that the new witness will say he was squirrel hunt ing that day. The defense summoned many wit nesses. Besides the testimony regard ing the bearded man. expert testimony was Introduced aa to the bounding qualities of an automobile similar to that driven by Beattle. thereby ac counting for the Jolting out of the car of the shotgun placed In a rear seat by Beattle after the encounter with the alleged highwayman. The prosecution attacked this line of evidence on cross-examination. 'The Idea of the prosecution has been to Indicate that Beattlo himself slowed down at the cross'"- and threw the gun to one side on his way to the Owen home with his dead wife. Witness Sanity Questioned. Beattle's counsel attacked the declar ation of Sam Talley that he heard on the night of the murder a shot and the acream of a woman In Midlothian Turn pike.

TOT ORDERED TO HOME HERE Woman Collapses as Judge Gantenbein Decides. ' POLICE ARE ON LOOKOUT Husband Sues Wife Tor Custody of Flve-Year-Old, Who Is Seized by Man or Woman In Hubbub Following Jurist's Act. A charge of contempt of court is hanging over the head of a mysteri ous person, who bundled little 5-year-old Harvey Walker In his arma yes terday and spirited him away just t after Judge Gantenbein had decided to aend the child to the home of the Boys and Girls' Aid Society and while the mother was In a dead faint on the floor. Taking advantage of the genera hubbub which ensued when the mother'a walls rent the air the kidnaper, pre sumably a friend of the mother, dls appeared as completely as If the earth had swallowed him or her, for, as tar as the knowledge of the court offl clals goes, the kidnaper may have been a woman. At any rate all that is known is that the child Is gone, and the police department Is seeking to discover hie whereabouts. Father Wants Child. The case waa that of Marvin Walker against Delia D. Walker. The pair was divorced six months ago, and, by the terms of the decree, the mother re tained custody of the child. She went to a little town near White Salmon, Wash., where she entered the employ of Fred Snyder, foreman of a meat company, as housekeeper. The house In which they lived contained only two rooms. Mrs. Walker said on the stand that when her former husband went to visit the child he tried to force his attentions upon her, and that she met his advances with a butcher knife. The father commenced an action for modification of the decree, alleging that the relations between Mrs. Walker and Snyder were Improper, and assert lng that his former wife was unfit to have the custody of the child. Alter listening to charge and counter-charge, Judge Gantenbein decided that the child should remain In the custody of the mother, but that he should be sent to a home and educated at the father's expense, . both parents being given equal opportunity to visit him. Mother Falls In Faint. Judge Gantenbein decreed that the boy should be turned over Immediately, and Deputy Probation Officer Fisher consented to take the child to the home.

(Special.) The muddy brown appearance of the White Salmon River last week has been accounted for by John McCord and party, who have returned from an outing near Mount Adams. Camped on the western slope of the mountain. the party one evening about dusk distinctly heard the . slow grinding noise of a glacier moving for about five minutes. It was discovered next morning that Avalanche Glacier, one of the three feeders of the White Salmon River, had slipped down the mountain for about 50 feet, and a chocolate-hued stream flowed from it. The White Salmon River has its source In three glaciers on the west side of Mount Adams. The largest of these Is White Salmon River glacier. To the north of this lies ' Pinnacle glacier, and to the south Avalanche glacier, which it is declared moved during the night. SUGAR CLIMB STARTLES Granulated Highest in Years and Raw Material Soars. NEW. TORK, Aug. 30. Grocery cir cles here showed concern today over the high prices now prevailing in the sugar market. There was an advance In granulated during the day to $6.25. representing a full cent rise In the, last few weeks, and the highest level In many years. Coming at the height of the canning season, this advance is of vital interest to consumers over all the country. It s attributed primarily to a poor sugar. beet crop In Europe, following pro- onged drouth this Summer. To make things worse, the Cuban crop, which furnishes the bulk of raw material for American refiners, also proved short. and prices began to soar. Far-sighted dealers bought large supplies some months ago, leaving the market almost bare of stock and raw sugars In consequence have made new high records, while many operators In the street predict that the end Is not et in sight. , UNION-CANADA TIE SEEN Premier Declares Reciprocity Is Move Toward Annexation.

FUR HEADGEAR REIGNS National Milliners at Chicago Hint at Pronunclamento for Winter That Promises to Startle Corsets Only for Stout Folk. CHICAGO. Aug. SO. (Special) Aeroplane hats with aviation bows will be the extremely proper thing In mil linery this season. The girl with the muff is coming back. This time the muff Is as large as a suitcase and Is suspended from the shoul.iers by cords or straps. Inside the muff there will be mirrors, pomades, powder puffs, handkerchiefs, In fact, a well-equipped beauty parlor. Incidentally there will be room for the girl's hands. Carrying out the aviation Idea in woman's dress and hats, it may be said right now that prices will make some new altitude records, and man will have to do some lively "stunts" to meet the bills. Broad hints of all three styles came out tonight at the opening session of the National milliners' convention, at which was shown a superb display of the newest confections In headgear. Fur Like Dunce Cap. The Winter's outfit for the properly dressed woman will be startling. In addition to the immense muff there must be a bonnet of fur to match. This to the uninitiated strongly re sembles a dunce cap with donkey's ears attached, but the creators say It Is the mercury helmet with monoplane trim ming. The cafe hat will be of un usual large acreage this season. This creation, it is admitted, will be built chiefly for the diversion and to stir the envy of the other woman diners. This lid will be so large that It will crowd the ordinary aisles and hallways and will have everything on It, in cluding the mortgage for the old home, unless the wearers have a cellar full of money. Old Sunbonnet Revived. Autoraeblle bonnets are positively the last word. They are made in all shades of velvet and are exact dupli cates of the old-fashioned sunbonnet in everything but material and price. The muff-and-hat-to-match proposi tion, however, is what will put this land of the brave and home of the free on the brink of collapse. It is de creed that no matter how many hall milady may elect to own, she must have a muff to. match each one. Gloves, shoes, jewelry and all that must also be of the same shade. It is easy to see where the breadwinner gets off. As a result of the ruling by the United States Senate that no aigrettes shall be used, herons' plumes are sub stituted where a Jaunty effect is de sired. The cafe hat fairly wallows in herons' plumes and marabout. Orien tal buckles, Japanese turbans and coro nets and the like are decidedly proper. "Deity" Hat Supreme. The "Deity" hat is strictly original in effect and derives its name from Its appearance. Made witn seal Drown underbrim. with a top of golden brown of . fur or velvet, with an immense Egyptian buckle much in evidence, it Is predicted this bat will find' much fa vor. It was announced that the new dresses would flare from the knees and that all but stout women would be denied corsets, so that women will be able to walk with some degree of comfort and grace. High-heeled shoes are also taboo In the swell sets. Per fumery and sachet powders will be more in vogue than formerly, but the perfumery will be lavished on the gi gantic muffs, so that milady will create a fascinating atmosphere as she swishes throuph the streets. MODEL SCHOOLS TO RISE Walla Walla County to Build Two, Structures on Ideal Plan. : WALLA WALLA. Wash.. Aug. 30. (Special.) Two model schools are to be established In Walla Walla County, both of which will be new departures along the line of educational, institu tions in rural districts. College Place district, west of the city, will be the first in Eastern Wash ington to build a schoolhouse accord ing to the uniform plans of State Su perintendent H. B. Dewey. The other school, at Prospect Point, south of the city, will be more pretentious. Here the school district has five acres and this will be converted into a park, with tennis, baseball and basketball grounds, together with a picnic park. The district has a cottage for the teacher and this, together with the schoolhouse Itself, will be furnished with all late electric devices, such as pneumatic air supply plant operated by electricity, lights, etc. All modern sanitary features will also be employed and the school has been planned to be . model in every respect.
