with us a ; week he "would not - drink
his coffee any more. I asked him, the

Blnger - Hermann case, got Into 'action
again this morning" and helped shorten
the agony of the Hermann trial, which
has been suffered by himself and his 11
companions for mors than four weeka.
"I. would like to aak a question, ir u
is permitted." he said rising to his feet
and interrupting the testimony of Har
vey W. Scott - ' ':
The cour told him to ask what ha
wanicu o.' . .,
Juror Asks Qnsstioa.
"I would Ilka to know.' continued Mr.
Metcalf, 'what refeVencs the silver
question has to the conspiracy to Create
the Blue Mountain reserve?" v
' While the court explained. the refer
ence, Mr. Heney brought his examina
tion of the witness. to a more or less
abruDt closa .. .'.
Mr. Scott had been called for furthei
croaa examination. Ho had been pt-n
the sUnd in the first Instance aa a char
acter witness and Mr. Heney had drawn
a long list of editorials he had written
bitterly assailing Hermann ror nis po
litical acts. Mr. Heney was cross ex
amining Scott about tnese eoiioriaia
when' the question of Juror Metcalf
Dolnted to the stats of mind Of the Jury
and Mr. Heney did not press ms exami
nation much further. ' . .
Scott was asked shout a number. .or
editorials, somo of. which ha could not
remember. , ana. one or. wnicn ne mu
spoke of things he did not unaersiana.
Mr, Scott said that his. testimony re
garding the character of Hermann for
honesty and Integrity naa - ameaaieu
the land fraud investigations.
Hermann's Methods JTot Approrsd.
In giving his testimony, he. said, he
had separated . political matters . and
Hermann's character aa a man and a
citizen. Scott , aaid he had never ap
proved Hermann's methods ss a poli
tician. He had heard of many charges
made agalnat Hermann In a political
way Juat aa other men had been attacked,
even Mr. Heney. but he had never
charged him with a conspiracy to de
fraud the government or with personal
Following the testimony of Mr. Scott
Peter Applegate, state land agent was
put on the stand to testify regarding the
records of the land office as far as
they contained letters between Hermann
and T. W. Davenport regarding the lieu
land act and the state school lands in
the Cascade forest reserve.
It was Mr. Heney's desire to show by
Davenport that he had written to Her
msnn in 1899 and called his attention
to fraud In school lands. Judge Wolver
tora ruled Mr. Davenport's testimony to
be Incompetent however, because of the
lack of foundation built for it, and he
was excuaed from the stand.,
Parker on Stand.
Judge James I. Parker, who had been
chief of the land and railroads division
of the department of the interior In
1901 and 1902, testified that he had
never given Harry J. Brown advance
tips on forest reserve withdrawals. He
said he could not remember of having
ever talked to Brown about the Blue
Mountain reserve withdrawal.
Mr. Hermann was recalled to- the
stand for further cross examination.
and was asked about many details re
garding, the withdrawal of the' Wal
lowa reaerve and several other reserves.
concerning which he had testified on his
At 11:45 o'clock both sides rested,
and the Jury was excused while Mr.
Heney and Colonel Worthlngton argued
with the court regarding the instruc
tions to the Jury. Colonel Worthlng
ton. asked that the testimony of Dan
Tarpley, Horace G. McKmley, C. E. 8.
Wood and George Sorenson be stricken
out. They had testified that Mays had
told them he had to spend money in
Washington to get the Blue Mountain
- Worthlngton Objects.
Colonel Worthlngton said he had ob
jected to the testimony at the time and
the court had allowed it on the ground
that the order of proof was discre
tionary. He contended that no evidence
had been produced to show that Her
mann had ever entered into any agree
ment with Mays by which he waa to
be paid for what he might do in Wash
ington.. ' Judge Wolverton said that he would
instruct the Jury not to consider the
testimony unless other facts proved
that there was a conspiracy. In that
case it wopld be competent as against
Hermann. He overruled tha motion of
'Colonel . Worthlngton also asked that
the testimony regarding the Zabrlskle
letters and the Holslnger report, dealing
with the Hyde-Benson frauds Jn Cali
fornia and Oregon, - be ruled out, sub
sequent to the date of July 15. 1902. He
said that last overt act charged In the
indictment was the Mays letter of July
15, 1902, asking for the withdrawal. ,
: v.-. , : "'. . Court . Overrules ; SCotloa.
Thai withdrawal had been made prior
to that time and any Information- of
fraud, coming to the. commissioner sub
sequent to that date,, was not competent
to affect the Blue Mountain conspiracy.
; Judge Wolverton also overruled this
motion, holding with Mr. Heney that
the conspiracy was to obtain the lands
and exchange them, and that therefore
the conaplracy waa not completed until
the exchange had been made.
All of the afternoon session will he
taken up with the discussion of the
desired instructions and of points Of
law by tha two attorneys. Mr. 'Heney
will begin his opening argument to the
Jury In the morning at 10 o'clock. He
expects to close within a day,' but those
who have heard him before believe that

The Beautiful Hatr
of English Women
' . (Annie Bly In N. T. Graphic) -
The long, abundant and glossy tresses
of English women are not due to hair
tonics and heroic shampooing. There is
a general ; belief over there that -the
leas water put on the. hair, the-better
it Is; they say wetting "takes the life
out" and leaves the hair dull, brittle
and colorless. , ' '
i English women with hair: rich In
color, clean and wholesome and pletfty
of It have told me they attribute it
to dry' shampooing two or three times
a i week. ; They., mix ; four ounoes ; of
therox with four ounces , of orris njoot
and sprinkle a .tablespoonful of this
mixture' on - the head; then, brush the
powder thoroughly through1 the hair.
They thus . also avoid the danger of
catching cold, and the discomfort that
accompanies washing, rinsing and dry
ing ..the-hair. . , .
This treatment keeps the hair light,
fluffy and ' lustrous. . and is the only
thing I know that will actually pro
duce the growth of hair. .

In every walk in life discrimination between the true '
and the false wins and enjoys success. In questions of
. form, of style and of values, whether financial, commercial
or medicinal, the judgement of the men and women who
select and appreciate and utilize the true and genuine
product, proves most profitable and most satisfactory to
themselves and to all who follow them. '
Therefore, io connection with so important a subject as
the physical well-being of the people, the most eminent
physicians insist on full information as to the wholesome
nature and truly beneficial character of the component
parts of the remedies used and prescribed by them, and the
wise ; manufacturer not only supplies c them (, with the
. knowledge desired, lut also combines for them in proper
proportions the very substances most approved by them
and omits every objectionable substance. The world-wide
acceptance of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna by phy
sicians and the well-informed of the world, as the best of
family laxatives, is due to the universal satisfaction which
it has given for more than a quarter of a century and also
to the fact that it is a remedy of known quality and known
component parts and to the further fact that the California
Fig Syrup Co. presents it to the world 6imply as the ideal
strengthening personal laxative to cleanse and sweeten the
system gently, yet effectually, and to dispel Colds and
headaches and to assist in overcoming constipation. To,
get its beneficial effects always buy the original and
genuine, for sale by all leading druggists. The full name
