REALISM IN MURDER TRIALS.
Ghastly Experiments and How One
Coat a Lawyer His Life.
The realism Injected Into the recent
Allgaler murder trial by the Intro
duction, aa evidence, of photographs
showing the scene of the tragedy and
the relative position of the principals
and w itnesses was something out of the
ordinary, even In murder trials. It is
common to Introduce uch grewsome
reminders as blood-stained linen, and
bullet-bored coats as evidence, but post
mortem photographs are indeed a nov
elty. The Luetgert case in Chicago was es
pecially prolific in unsightly remnanti
of bones, supposed to be and finally
accepted as human.
But In all the domain of criminal
Jurisprudence perhaps no greater in
tensity of realism was ever attained
than In a case at Memphis, Tenn.,
about ten years ago.
The body of Mrs. Mary Person wat
found in the back garden of her sub
urban home. There wag a hole in the
temple, and a pistol by her side, one
barrel discharged. Neighbors had heard
a shot shortly after midnight. The
husband and children testified that Mrs
Person had retired early the night be.
fore and was not missed till daylight.
The surface facts Indicated suicide and
the coroner so declared It. j
An observant reporter noticed that
while the ground everywhere was mud
dy, as was the gown of the dead
body, the soles of the feet were as
clean as though fresh from the bath
He argued that the woman was killed
In the house, and the body carried tc
where It was found. On this Informa
tion the attorney general of Shelby
county, Oeorge B. Peters, ordered a
post mortem. The order was served
Just as the funeral cortege was leav.
Ing the house the following day. In
the meantime the husband was ar
rested. The poat mortem developed that there
were two exterior wounds, one made by
a pistol ball. The other might have
been the point of exit. But this. It was
contended by '.be prosecution, had been
produced by a blow, which had frac
tured the skull and produced death, the
pistol ball having been fired into the
skull after the body had been placed
In the garden, to give the appearance
of suicide. There wfere no powder
burns, such as is almost Invariably the
case In suicide by shooting. A small
Iron bar, used as a paper weight, was
mlssftlng from Its usual place on the
desk of the accused. Person was In
dicted for murder In the first degree.
He employed eminent counsel and the
trial was a highly Interesting battle of
legal talent and medical experts.
The defense's theory wag that the
plctol ball had fractured the skull and
caused death. But the post-mortem
showed, not only an extensive fracture
of the skull, but fractures generally of
the nasal and other small facial bone.
Experts for the state contended that a
pistol ball would merely bure a small
hole In Its passage and could not pro
duce such extensive fractures.
The first bit of realism was the In
troduction of the top of the woman's
skull as evidence.
Then followed some of the most re
markable experiments ever made In
search of evidence to substantiate the.
orles. Bodies of paupers and hospital
patients were procured and experts
banged away at their skulls, afterward
noting the effects by surgical explora
tion. They found extensive fractures
hard to achieve by such means. In
further endeavors a pistol was firmly
tied to the head by bandages and then
exploded. Following these experiments
came various shootings of pistol balls
Into heads and bodies of the dead at
close range, to test the powder burn
These exercises were conducted in the
Intervals of court, and not In the pres
ence of the Jury, but the experiments
were explained to them In detail, and
the skulls exhibited at short range.
Ranged on the table, and marked
Exhibit A, B, C, and so on down the
alphabet, the court room looked like a
museum of anatomy, and the "exhib
its" proved too much for the stomach
of some of the Juror, moat of whom
The rase ended in the conviction of
Person of a lesser degree of murder
than charged. He wa sentenced to
five years In the penitentiary, but se
cured a new trial on a technicality and
wa never placed In Jeopardy again.
A few month later Person, at the
age of 60, with married children, mar
lied a 15-year-old girl and narrowly
escaped being lynched by Indignant
neighbor of the bride' family.
The acme of realism wa reach, tho'
by accident. In a criminal trial a few
year ago at Lebanon, O.
Two men had a personal encounter
One of them, after vainly trying tc
draw his pistol from his hip pocket,
turned to flee. A moment later he fell,
hot In the small of the back. One
chamber of hi pistol was found to have
been fired. HI assailant was tried
The defense contended that the man
had shot himself while trying to draw
his pistol, which had become entangled
In the linings of the pocket, and thai
the prisoner' shots had not taken ef
fect. The prosecution contended thai
such a wound could not have been self
inflicted. The defendant's counsel, Clement S.
Vanlandlngham. undertook to demon
trate to th Jury Just how the dead

INCREASE IN EXPORTS
sVhat We Shipped In February For
The February exports were the targ
et in history, with the single excep
:ion of 1898. The exports of bread
tuffs, provisions, cotton and mineral
ils amounted to 135.989,894, against 40.
43.S06 in February, 1897, and t52.114.373
In February, 1SS6. The slight reduc
(lon as compared with the correspond
ing month of 1898 is not in volume, but
n value, because of lower prices for
some of the leading articles. The
quantity of wheat exported in Febru
ary, 1898, was nearly 100.000.000 bushels,
against 7,000,000 bushels in the corre
sponding month of 189S, while the value
is given at $7,335,399, against $6,434,028.
The exports of wheat in the eight
months ended February, 1899, amounted
to 108,807,880, against 101.425,562 bushels
last year, while the value is but $81,-
173,049. against $93,982,566 in the corre
sponding months of last year. While
the wheat producers are not obtaining
as satisfactory prices for their products
ag they did at this time last year, the
cotton growers are more fortunate. The
February exports of cotton, which
amounted to 283,412,706 pounds, were
valued at $17,326,462, while 368,833,600
pounds exported In February of last
year were valued at but $21,761,107, the
average export price last year being be
low 6 cents per pound, while this year
it Is considerably above 6 cents. In
practically all articles except wheat the
export trade is more satisfactory than
usual, that of provisions !n 1899 being
larger than in the corresponding month
of 1898, 1897 and 1896, while manufac
tures continue the steady growth over
last year and over any preceding year.
THE SUNNY SOUTH
Presents an Unequaled Combina
tion of Advantages
"Nature has given the South advan
tages unequaled by those of any ether
country. More than (0 per cent ef the
world's cotton is raised In the South.
But its cotton crop is now exceeded in
value by its grain crops, which aggre
gate 650,000,000 bushels a year, a fact
which comparatively few seem to know.
More than one-half of all the standing
timber in the United States Is In the
South. Iron ore and coal are in unlim
ited supply, and owing to their prox
imity to each other, and to the lewdest
of mining, pig iron is now made at a
smaller cost than in any other part ef
the world. Pittsburg and Chicago are
now using Alabama iron for basic steel
making, and soon large steel plants will
be built In the South. Nearly every
Southern state has an abundance cf
the best water powers to supplement
the advantages of cheap coal. It Is not
an exaggeration to say that this fa
vored land has greater advantages and
resources, such as mineral, timber and
agricultural wealth, than all other sec
tions; It also has greater advantages
for the profitable utilization ef these
natural resources than any ether coun
try in the world; by virtue of Its rivers
aad long sea coast, it has the guarantee
f the lowest freight rates, regardless
of railroad combinations; it has a cli
mate that is conducive to good health
and long life a climate that reduces
the cost of living to a minimum; it has
all of these mighty factors to Insure
Its prosperity, and with fewer dlsad
vantages than any other equal area in
America or Europe. It can produce ev
erything, from the widest range of ag
ricultural growth to the widest limit ef
manufacturing and mining diversity
at a lower cost than other sections. It
Is becoming the market garden of the
North. In the aggregate the shipment
of early fruits and vegetables to the
North and West probably amounts to
Sut.tt. a year. This business is in
creasing very rapidly. Ten years ago
it was of trifling l.nportance.
Some rountri-'S hdve Iron and coal;
come have tinker; some have a good
climate; some have water powers; some
