stated that Brogan was at the end of the
bar and after Gumm struck Forrester he
(Brogan) grabbed a chair and walked, a

in an endeavor to impeach the testimony
of Clarno. Farquer McRae was then
re-called and testified that Brogan told

his left side.

body of Brogan for shipment to this
place, and that he found no weapon up
pn the clothes worn by tbe 'deceased at
the time he was killed,' which eame was
(offered in testimony before the jury.
He also stated that the clothes were
tore and open, and that they were in
the same condition as when taken from
the body. - - - '
Mrs. Jack Taylor was next before tbe
court and testified that Forrester came
to her borne, which is about three-quarters
of a mile from Antelope, and
knocked at the back door. Mrs. Taylor
went to the door and Forrester asked to
see her oldest son. Mrs. Taylor replied
that he was not at home, when Forrester
asked for the yonnger son. He came to
the door and Forrester said "Come ont;
I want to see you." The boy, who is
14 years old, started out, when Mrs.
Taylor became alarmed and asked her
son to come back. Forrester then said
That's all right; I won't hurt you."
He then spoke up and said he would
like to get a horse, and Mrs. Taylor told
bim there were none in the barn that he

This has certainly been society week
in The Dalles. Seldom it is that dancers
are permitted to enjoy two such splendid
parties in one week as has been their
privilege on Tuesday and Friday nights.
Last night's party was given by Mr. and
Mrs. H. W. French to their gnests,
Misses Susie Stott and Pearl Wifiiams,
of Portland, and was attended by their
st intimate friends. '
The completeness of every feature of
the occasion was characteristic of the
host anTl hostess, who are wont to carry
out what is undertaken in a perfect man
ner. K.,of P. hall was, therefore, very
prettily arranged, the small hall, which
was used as a refreshment room, being
decorated in evergreens potted plants
and cut flowers, ' while the table was
very daintly- spread, and looked most
inviting as tbe guests sauntered back
and forth betweendances, to partake of
tbe cooling refreshments, so graciously
served by Mrs. Patterson, Mrs. Cran-
dall and Mrs. Dean.'
. The music of Birifeld's orchestra was
exceptionally good and the appreciation
of the dancers was apparent as selection
after selection was applauded;
Tbe following were among those who
were privileged, through the kindness of
Mr. aod Mrs. Fiench,' to enjoy a delight
ful evening and greet their very pleasant
guests, Misses Stott and Williams:
