Tho $40,000 damage suit against the

Mrs. Dorothea Stool, of Turner, was
called in department number 1 of the
circuit court this morning and the ex
amination of the jurors began. It is
probable thnt the jury will not be
selected until a late hour this evening
as both the Southern Pacific attorneys
and the attorneys for the plaintiff are
making a painstaking examination of
the prospective jurors. Each one is
sounded as to his feelings for corpor
ations and for widows and it is pos
sible that the entire panel of 21
jurors will be exhausted before the
jury is finally selected.
The case is brought . by Mrs. Stool
as administrator of the estate of Oluf
Olson Stool, a section laborer who was
killed at Turner October 7, 1913, when
he was run down by a work train on
the main line in the Turner yards. The
plnitil'f asks $20,000 damages for the
suffering and pniu of the deceased
after the accident and the further sum
of $20,000 for the loss of the support
of her husband upon whom she and her
