"He -was bound I wasn't going to

Such was a portion of the testimony

by Mrs. Kmm Trout, the complainant.
against . H. Lyness, a salesman, 6
years old. of 2170 East Market street,
charged with assault and battery. Mrs.
Trout is 61 years old.
Both testified that the argument
arose over the ownership of a small
plied, which Lyness claimed had been
sriven him by the owner and which
Mrs. Trout was equally positive be
longed to her. Fhe sent workmen to
tear it down and remove it.
Her manner was pert yet deadly when
she confronted Lyness before the court
a vehement little woman in a tailored
suit and a white-pompadoured pleasant-
faced elderly gentleman.
''Courtesies" Are Exchanged.
"Didn't you say. 'Go "way, you old
hypocrite." 'Go way, you old rascal'?'
demanded the defendant in examina
tlon. "TJnhuh. mebbe I did." was the
affirmation. "You say I kicked you?"
The answer was shrilly positive. You
certainly did! 'When I stooped over,
you Rave me a good one.
The defendant prefaced his remarks
to the court by declaring that he felt
sorry for Mrs. Trout, but that sue bad

emphatic denial to tbe alleged kick or
to having struck airs. Trout in any

Valiantly Lyness rallied to the ex
planation. Mrs. Trout, at the solicita
tion of his son, he said, and of her
own accord, came to his home to run
small poultry farm. He denied that
his attitude toward her had at any time
been tender, or that be had contrived
to take her savings.
'Lyness, I am going to fine you 110

be Mrs. Trout's guest for ten days."
He sha n't enter my bouse! declared
Mrs. Trout. "I'm sure I don't want to,"

Treaties Slay Last for While but
Whenever Material Interests of
Nations Demand It They Will
Be Broken, Says Mr. Sellevr,
The peace plans of President Wilson
were branded yesterday as "Utopian"
rather than practical by Rev. Walter A.
Sellew, of Jamestown, N. Y., bishop of
the Free Methodist Church of North
America, who is holding meetings at
the First Free Methodist Church, East
Ninth and East Mill streets.
"I don't think we ever will arrive at
permanent peace by -means of agree
ments or treaties," he said. "Such trea
ties may last for a while, but whenever
the material interests of the nations
demand it they will be broken."
The bishop declared that he sym

move, although he felt that no perma

said that, in his opinion, there would
be no permanent peace until the mil
lennium, because of the fact that man
is a fighting animal by nature.

the bishop, "and it has certainly been
shown in the past to be the warlike
nations that ultimately are destroyed.
The only nation that God has let stand
is the Chinese nation, a nation which is
proverbial for its peacefulness, yet
which has a history extending back to
the time of Samuel the Prophet. China
has been conquered twice and twice has
in turn conquered the conquerors with
the arts of peace. On the other hand,
the warlike nations of the world one
by one have gone down to defeat. There

Bishop Sellew is president of the
general foreign missionary board of his
church and in that capacity has trav
eled widely. He has made one trip
around tbe world and has made three
trips to Japan. He also was sent to
China to investigate at the time of the
famine there in 1911.
Meetings will be held at the First
