ATLANTA , Oct. 23.--Charlcs P. Crisp , thu
ox-speaker of the house ot representatives ,
died hero todty.
Mr. Crisp has been an Inmate of the canl-
tnrluin In this city for several weeks. Ills
condition had been reported as very low ,
but' no fatal conclusions to his Illness bad
been expected so soon. When n rumor got
abroad several days ago that ho was sinkIng -
Ing It was vigorously dented nt the sani
tarium , where It was given out that ho wan
netting better. Mr. Crisp lias been at the
Holmes sanitarium suffering from malarial
Mr. Crisp had been In Intense pain all
day. Every few minutes ho would suffer
greatly. His wlfo , together with the sani
tarium nurse , Mrs. Sharp , was watching at
Ms bedside. At about 1:45 : o'clock Mr.
Crisp was seized with another attack , nnd
qulto suddenly ho passed Into the calm ot
death. The watchers saw It and sent down
stairs for Dr. Holmes. Judge Crisp's .two
daughters , MM. Fred Davenport nnd Miss
llerflm Crisp , and his two sons , Mr. Charles
0. Crisp , Jr. , and Mr. Fred Crisp , wcro at
the Italian ! house on Peach Trco street.
They wcro quickly summoned. When they
entered the room Judge Crisp was still un
conscious. Ho gave them the look of rec
ognition , breathed n few times nnd died.
Ho could not speak. So quickly bad the
dread messenger como that the stricken
family stood appalled In the death cham
Mr. Crisp's death , while apparently thua
sudden , wns not unexpected by the physi
cians who have been watching him. Dr.
J. 'B. Holmes ot the Halcyon sanitarium
made the following statement ot his Illness
nnd the manner of the end : "Judgo Crfsp
had been In 111 health for the past six or
eight months. Ho had been suffering for
two or tinee years with Intense pains com
ing at Intervals In the chest. He had two
attacks of pneumonia , one about four years
ago and the other about two years ago. On
account ot 111 health ho had to give up his
Joint debates last summer with Hon. Hoko
Smith. After the speeches In Juno he went
to Ashcvlllc , N. C. , and spent some time
there. From thcro ho went to Tate Springs
and remained until about the middle of
August , then going to his homo In Amcrl
cus. There ho was taken with malarial
fever. Ho then went to Atlanta for
treatment. He came hero to the cam
tarlum September 1C. I examined
him carefully and found evidence
from his previous attacks of
plcuro-pneumonla. His fever yielded to the
treatment and ten days ago ho was con
sidered convalescent. He was out driving
several times last week even as late as
Eunday and was feeling unuHually well that
' . ' day. Sunday ho was attacked with conges
tion of the lungs and suffered Intensely.
Monday night and Tuesday he was still In
bed. He was better Wednesday. Yesterday
ho had on easy day and was decidedly better
than any day since Sunday night. The
lung trouble yielded very satisfactorily to
treatment. Last night ho was visited with
very severe pains In the chest that occurred
at very frequent Intervals. Ho continued to
have thcso paroxysms until 1:45 : this after
noon , when ho suddenly expired , probably
from the rupture of the vessels of the heart
as the result of fatty degeneration. "
It Is understood his body will ultimately
rest at his old homo In Amcrlcus , among
the pcoplo who loved so well to honor him
Hnnnrs befitting the high stations Mr. Crisp
has occupied in tlio state , and the nation
will undoubtedly be paid his memory by
the general assembly , which meets nexl
Governor Atkinson heard the news of Mr.
Crisp's death at the executive office and Im
mediately the Georgia flag over the capital
wns lowered to half mast. Ho said : "Mr.
Crisp's death is particularly a calamity Just
at this time. Ho had attained a position
and bo was not only ono of the most valu
able men In our state , but was a national
character ot which all Georgians were
proud. I regard him as the most conspicuous
man before the nation of all southern people.
Ills position as speaker of the house had
brought him more prominently bcforo the
people than nny southern man and the mag
nificent ability which ho displayed In sus
taining himself as a leader bad made its
impress upon the whole country to such an
extent that ho was regarded everywhere as
ono ot the foremost men of America. "
Ex-Secretary Hoko Smith said : "I was
thrown with Judge Crisp constantly In Wash ,
ington and I am deeply distressed at his
sudden death , His quickness , calmness and
eound judgment made him tbo natural leader
of the democrats In the house of representa
tives. Ills kind and gentle tcmpcramenl
gave him the love of all who knew him.
Although ho had filled the highest position
given to a Georgian In the national councils
since the days of Howell Cobb , he especially
desired a scat In the senate and his refusal
to accept the appointment tendered him by
Governor Northcn was the clearest proof ol
his unselfish patriotism. Ho had Just fairly
won bcforo the people of Georgia a seat In
the senate. In that body he would have
added to his great national reputation and ' .
regret sincerely that ho has not been spared
to nil It. "
ATLANTA , Oti. , Oct. 23. Governor W
Y. Atkinson. wlo has Just been rc-electc <
chief executive ot Oorgla for a term o ;
two years , la prominently mentioned as sue
ccssor to the senatorial seat which woulc
have been Mr. Crisp's had ho survived
Should ho enter and bo elected thcro wll
probably bo a contest for the governorship
between Hon. Robert L. Dcrner nnd Hon
A. S. Clay , chairman of the state demo
cratlc executive committee. Governor At'
klnson's choice as senator would render
necessary n special election for governor.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 23. Speaker Crisp's
death was not altogether a surprise In pa
lltlcal circles , as It had been known to
some months that he had not long to live
and novcr again would bo an active flgun
in public affairs. Tbo speaker had scvera
spells of sickness In Washington. Ho suf
fcred from asthma and later from heart
trouble. His ill health , however , did not
bccomo a matter of public notoriety until
the past spring , when ho was compelled to
abandon a serlce of Joint debates arranged
with ox-Secretary Hoko Smith by advice
of his physician that It would Imperil his
llfo for him to continue the debate , which
had attracted great Btato aa well as national

A great deal of genuine regret was felt at
the Salvation Army barracks , says the Chicago
cage Uecord , over the death at IJutte , Mont. ,
of Helen Forslind. alias Kato Evans , once
a famous frontier bandit , but who was sud
denly converted and for several years lived
a llfo of honor and piety. It Is teportcd
that the woman died from the effects of
poison administered by her own hand , What
had couio over her to cause her to commit
sulcltlo no ono knows. Since her conversion
she had been Identified with army work on
the coast and had been nblo to persuade
many rough characters to lead a better life.
There Is apparently no ono In Chicago con
nected with the army who ever saw the
woman , but many knew of her previous
llfo and bad heard of her subsequent
"Helen Foreland was ono of the most
noted characters that ever haunted the
western states. " said a detcctlvo well ac
quainted with her history , "and was Impli
cated In stngo robberies In Idaho , Oregon ,
Washington , Montana and California. She
went for many years attired in man's clothIng -
Ing , with her hair cut short , and , having a
masculine voice , It was never susplcloncd
that she was a woman. Her personality was
that of a keen-witted and desperate man
ready to take any chances to gain a point.
She had a full chest. Ihki lips , small , piercing
ing gray eyes , which w'cro quick and rest
less , and a determined look.
"Though her features were coarse she
was not a bad looking woman , and had a
respectable appearance as a man. She stood
about C feet 0 Inches , was ot medium build ,
rather angular In form and presented the
picture of a well developed and sinewy man.
Strange to say , after all her rough life her
hands were still symmetrical and more feml-
ntno than masculine.
"Her llfo was of the border ruffian type ,
full of Incidents that would 1111 a hundred
dlino novels with tales of daring deeds , yet
with It Is mingled the prettiest bit of ro
mance of how her sweetheart sacrificed him
self for her and Is now serving out a life
sentence In the San Qucntln prison because
of his devotion. Ho pleaded guilty to a
crime which she claimed she had committed.
She , the guilty one , terrible In character ,
was touched by his faithfulness and began
to muse on the step which ho had taken for
her sake. Whllo thus meditating she was
In the prison at Uutto and ono day there
appeared In her dark cell a woman calling
the prisoners to repentance. It was Major
Ilalpin of the Salvation army.
" 'That sounds like the volco of my
mother , ' she said. Then and there the
hoarse voice ot the hardened criminal melted
away Into childish accents , and she made a
vow that thereafter she would lead a Chris
tian life , and do all in her power to have
her sweetheart released from the peni
tentiary. Vlie conversion of the notorious
woman created a great sensation all along
the Pacific coast. Her sincerity ot purpose
won her favo. " with the police authorities
and they let her alone , although she had
confessed to numerous robberies. From the
tlmo oho emerged from that' prison , soon
after her conversion , she carried the salva
tion banner through the streets of Portland ,
nutto , Helena and many other cities anil
shouted hallelujahs with as much fervor as
the other lasses.
"The crlmo for which she almost went to
the penitentiary was that of robbing a etogo
coach near Helena about six years ago. She
and a man had committed the robbery nnd
wcro captured. It was while In prison this
tlmo that the officials discovered that she
was a woman. Her lover , Archie Nle < lerlng-
haus , came forward with a confession , which
was believed , the woman and her accomplice
were acquitted , and the lover now languishes
In prison , She made a confession herself ,
but It was not believed and she wont free. "
Major Uovlll of the Salvation army , ) vho
has charge ot the Chicago Woman's Train
ing school , wns In San Francisco a little
over flvo years ago , when Helen Forsland
was converted" , nnd , though > did not see
the woman , she remember * case with
much vlvlJncb-s on account ot the stir which
It caused on the coast. Shortly after the. .
woman was converted Major Halpln called
on Mrs. Dovlll and told her all the cir
cumstances. Said Mrs. Oovlll :
"This was one of the most remarkable
changes of which I have ever heard. II
created a goad deal of comment because It
turned out that the woman bad such a
sweet nnd lovable character. Wo talket
about her because the officers had a soot
deal of trouble with her. She had been
accustomed lo a roving and rough llfo so
long that ho did not know how to act.
She was so much llko a man. She sat llko
n man , and li was hard to get her to
change. Major Halpln took the woman to
her homo for some tlmo , because no one
would think ot employing her , and she did
not know how to do anything useful. Wo
sometimes laughed to ourvelvca because sh6
was so clumsy , but we made her think she
was getting along very well. I believe
her cue was a sincere conversion. I bad
not heard from her for uotuo time. "

Lines are being drawn closer and closer
among the local passenger and ticket
agents , and It will soon be a difficult matter
o deal with brokers or cut rats without
election. One ot the greatest obstacles the
ocal passenger association has encountered
n the development and prosecution of cases
against one of their members has been the
ofusal of the agent making the complaint
o push the case. Many ot the ticket men
mvo kept debit and credit accounts with
each other and squared their cases outside
ho association. This procedure has received
a serious blow In the appointment of a spe
cial solicitor by the Western Passenger as
sociation to conduct such cases. Chairman
Caldwcll has just appointed J. H. Metride
o this position , In accordance with the reao-
utlon adopted by the association In Septem
ber , ilia headquarters will be In Chicago ,
and ho will bo available for the prosecution
of offending ticket agents whenever called
Secretary Munn of the local association
B received a notice of this appointment ,
and certain directions concerning the new
manner of conducting cases. Among other
things thu notlro cays :
"PIcaso sco that your members under
stand this matter , and that It Is taken full
advantage of by those needing the prose
cutor's services whenever necessaryIn or
der to develop cases Inhlch thcro ap
pears to be a violation of the agreement.
It was expected when this legislation was
adopted that the local secretaries would
call for the services of the prosecutor when
needed , and that they had reason to be-
Itcvo that the agreement was being violated
lated , and members wcro unwilling to pio-
fcr charges. The local agreement provides
that charges must bo preferred within cer
tain tlmo limits , or , when Investigations
are made , within three days after the com
pletion ot the Investigation when tlmo Is
necessary to complete purchase of ticket
or test of train , and this should , as n rule ,
afford ample tlmo for the prosecutor to
prefer charges , especially If ho Is called
to the sccno by the secretary promptly. In
cases where the prosecutor Is called to a
point and starts an Investigation he can
leave the matter In such shape that when
the evidence * Is completed the secretary can
In his name prefer the charge for him , the
prosecutor returning to the point for the
purpose of prosecuting the case at the
meeting of the local association. "

The scarcity ot cars among all roads In this
section of the country , the story that has
gained rather extensive circulation , Is re
gardcd as a myth , rather more harmful than
amusing , by the freight officials of most
ot the Omaha lines. So far as can be
learned the Missouri Pacific Is the only
local line that Is seriously handicapped ,
though the Omaha could uoo more , cars If
It had them. The Union Pacific and the
Burlington officials say they arc not shorten
on cars , and the Iowa lines arc not at all
crippled by the lack1 of equipment.
Assistant General Freight Agent Phllllppl
of the Missouri Pacific , who has just returned
from a trip over the road , said In this
connection : "Yes , our line seems to bo the
worst off about here. This Is because BO
many of our cars arc down south , and It
takes a long time to get them back. Wo have
sent them to Mexico and Texas , and they
are being used down there for transporting
cotton. Thursday wo were short 783 cars ,
but I expect they will commence to come
back to us by the flrst of next week. The
bad feature of ( he shortage of cam at this
time Is that It handicaps the farmers who
have sold corn and want to move It before
the advance In rates on November 2. At
points where we cannot handle the business ,
rather than cause any hardship to the farm
ers , wo are turning over the business to the
Burlington , which seems to bo well sup
piled with cars. "

A Chicago paper his started a story to
the effect that the Burlington will soon
purchase the Chcycnno & Northern and
that the Elkhorn will extend Us Casper
branch to Ogdcn , Messrs. Hall and Alns-
worth of the latter road now being engaged
In surveying for the extension. Doth parts
of the story are emphatically dented at the
local headquarters ot the two roads. Neither
ono of the men named has been connected
with the Elkhorn for seven years , and Mr.
Hall has retired with a fortune of $7,000-
000 , so It Is hardly probable that ho Is out
carrying the chain for any railroad. The
Cheyenne & Northern Is considered a worth
less strip of railroad , and ono of the best
posted railroad officials In Omaha yesterday
morning said that his road wouldn't accept
the Cheyenne & Northern as a gift.

The strangest ot all earthly spots Is the
'Bad Lands" of the west , 'Says the Now
'ork Herald. Until no\y It has never been
known. But with the return ot a success-
ul expedition , composed 01 scientists , It will
ic recognized ns a place where prehistoric
nature lies disclosed and where wonders of
he past are associated with the picturesque-
ness ot the present.
These Important finds are the result ot a
carefully planned geological exploration of
ho "Bad Lands" made by Prof. J. E.
Todd , state geologist of South Dakota , and
Ivo scientists of the State university E. C.
Eckcrt , R. W. Ellis , F. A. Jordan , B. S.
" 'oyno and E. J. Wallace. These explorers
'ollowcd ' the valleys of the While , Chcy
cnno and Tlad rivers , croiscd their divides
and covered the famous trail between the
Jlack Hills and Chnmbcrhln. From Rose
Bud , Porcupine creek and the noted fossil
ground of Indian Draw they collected above
a ton of many rare and oevcral now spccl-
nens , which they shipped from Hcrmosa to
First and foremost , that much discussed
animal , the great American hog , has been
ound at last. For Prof , Todd and his
associates unearthed Its remains In the fos
sil beds of the "Bad Lands. " It bears In
cneral outline resemblance to Its descend
ant common to this country. There the re
semblance ceases , for It Is almost as largo
as a medium sized elephant and la armed
with two horns , several Inches In length ,
one on each side ot Its long , flexible nose.
Scientists recognize this1 Interesting brute
as the brontothcrlum , a compromise between
the elephant and tapir on one side and thu
rhinoceros and hog on the other. Skulls
wera dug uphlch measured two and a half
'cct In length and nearly at much In breadth.
They are saddle shaped , much like that ot
the rhinoceros , the back cf each rising In a
prominent transverse crest. >
Fortunately for prehistoric man , the bron
tothcrlum was almost exclusively a vege
tarian. It was a powerful beast and must
have been a hard fighter. Had It been
carnivorous It would lmv discouraged Im
migration nnd Interfered largely with the
census. It abounded In the White River
region , and was a very quick breeder. The
scientists say Its habits Kcro mostly those
ot the rhinoceros of today , but they unite
n classifying It as the common ancestor of
the wild and domestic hos.
Above brontothcrlum beds. Prof Todd
and the others found Plenty ot fossils of
orcodous and. turtles , mott of the latter of
enormous size , though soni'e wcro only a few
[ nchea In lergth. Many skeletons of the
orcodon , a prehistoric anbial combining the
characteristics of the hog and deer , wcro as
largo as a sheep.
Four or flvo species < t rodents and as
many of cnrnlvora wcro unearthed , none ot
the latter being larger ih'A'n a dog. The
professor found a complete specimen ot that
FZC , but It was In very small fragments.
They OEO discovered Incomplete specimens ot
a species of rhinoceros , a camel and ono of
the ancestors'of the horte , the mlohlppus ,
which was no bigger' than a Southdown
sheep. In the Loup Forkbeds , , overlying the
White river , they dug up specimens of water
plants and freshwater Chilli , and a few ot
the largo bones of the niamujoth and masto
don , most of which wcro very much under
the weather.
"Of the picturesque fcc'lurcs of the 'Bad
Lands , ' " said Prof. Toild , to the writer ,
"thcro can scarcely bo'nn. . exaggeration In
language. Words fall .to Convey the con
tinual change of outlines , both beautiful
and grotesque , which iiui-i , the eye of the
traveler as ho passes ( hfongh this strange
region. / / r. ' .
"Every one , as ho paks'ca uirough mile
after mile ot them * nUrUldx forms , " con
tinued the professor , "aslts what could have
caused this region to bo so different from
those which bound It on every side. The
question Is answered as follows :
"Tho country la largely barren , because
the formations are nearly impervious to
water , so that most of tne surface quickly
becomes diy and , although some epecles
liavo evidently In certain seasons succeeded
In establishing themselves upon these bar
ren surfaces , yet the usually prevailing dryness -
ness of the region alraoit completely pre
vents vegetation , except on tbo lower flats ,

Speaking of the enormous fossil beds.
Prof. Todd went on : "The thickness
of these beds Is from three hundred to flvo
hundred feet , and they wcro deposited by
the waters of a vast fresh watcY lake. A
natural explanation ot the occurrence of
fossils near the margin ot the lake , es
pecially on the Black Hills side , would
seem to bo that herds of animals at times
were overwhelmed oo. It * shores during se
vere storms. The rarer remains of other
species may bo accounted for by the sup
position that tributary streams occasionally
carried their bodies Into the lake. "

Today will see the first bin foot ball game
of the season played on the gridiron , and
while It Is not difficult to guess the win
ning team In moat ot the contests , It Is
certain that nearly all ot them will prove
o bo hard fought. The most Important
game of the day will bo the Harvard-Cornell
contest. at Ithaca , N. Y. Somewhere bc-
. \vccn ft.OOO and 10,000 alumni of the two
universities \\lll witness thu contest , spe
cial trains being run from Iluffalo ami
Rochester , and extra coaches being added to
the trains from Boston , New York and
Philadelphia. The fact that the game Is
ilaycd on college grounds before col-
eglans , rather than In the metropolis be-
'oro a mixed crowd , three or four times as
large. Is a further Indication of the policy
of both universities to remove from the
great college games what have been In tne
past Us worst features.
At this distance , judging from letters re
ceived from both Cambridge nml Ilhnca ,
It would seem as though Har
vard should win the game. Harvard
has always won In the past , though It has
hml several narrow escapes. The scores
of the Harvard-Cornell games seesaw lit
alternate years , and this year It Is Cor
nell's turn to pluy the Crimson n close
game. In ' 92 the score wni 20-14 : In ' 93.
14-Oi In ' 91. 22-12 : In ' 95 , 23-0. In ' 91 Harvard
did all Its scoring In the llrsU half ; In ' 9. >
It scored nil Its points In the second half.
The Indications nro that today's score ftlll
DO smaller than any of the above. The
Harvard team Is In splendid condition for
the fray , nnd until Thursday the Cornell
team wan In good trim. < rnen Young , the
quarterback , was hurt. If he Is absent from
today's game , the Cornolllant will bo badly
handicapped. Itlchle , the fullbnck , Is flick ,
nnd his place will bo taken by Traccy. Cor
nell lini two excellent hiUfhncks , but Har
vard's whole backlleld la strong. Cornell
Is stronger on the ends , nnd nt the tackles ,
but Harvard Is vastly superior In the
middle of the line. The three center men
of the crimson line promise to more than
hold their own against their opposite * .
The strcngthcnlm ? of the central trio wns
the object of a name that was played at
Ithaca on Tuesday between the 'varsity
nnd a team composed of Cornell graduates.
Two fifteen minute halves were played , re
sulting In a victory for the coaches by a
score of 4-0.
The Lafayette team that played Prince
ton to a tie before the Tigers were In
proper condition this season , will line up
against the Pennsylvania team nt Philadel
phia today. The game has been given
considerable free advertising by the ludl-
croim demands of the Lafayette manager
nnd will bo witnessed by a largo crowd.
It was rumored that Brink Theme , Yala's
captain ot last year , would play with La
fayette , but ho will not. Ho Is now a
student nt Lafayette , but will not play
with the team. Pennsylvania last year de
feated Lafayette. 30 to 0 , In a game of
Elxty-Ilvo minutes' duration , but It IB doubt
ful whether the Quakers can run up such
a score this year.
Yale has gone down to New York to
make some mono' by playing the Carlisle
Indians there , It being hoped that the
novelty will attract a large crowd. The
Indians scored on Princeton , but It Is a
good , safe bet that they don't wander very-
far Into the Yalenslans' territory. Lchlgh
and Urown have n go nt each other nt
Providence , and , barring ticcldents , the
Urown men will win very handily. Pcnn-
tylvanln. State college will bo represented
at Princeton today , nnd thcro will be an
other victory for the Tigers , though their
opponents did score on the strong men of
Philadelphia last season , Dartmouth will
piny Bowdoln at Hanover , and ought to
win nnd please the home crowd. Tufts
and Trinity will probably have a close
gnmo at Hartford.
In the west the most Important game will
bu between the teams representing the
Chicago and the Northwestern univer
sities , nnd the contest will bo for keeps.
The betting In Chicago la 8 to 5 on Stngg's
team , but the students of the Baptist uni
versity nro holding off for even money.
Billy Gardner nnd Gordon Clarke of this
city will bo found In Chicago's backflcld.
On Monday thcro will bo played the flrst
game In the Western Intercollegiate foot
ball season. Nebraska against Missouri , at

In Omaha a double bill Is today offered
to the foot ball patrons. The best played
game will doubtless bo that nt the grounds
of the Young Men's Christian association ,
where the teams of the High schools of
Omaha and Council Bluffs line up against
each other. This game will be called nt
2:30 : o'clock. An hour later a game between

Six lawyers , a Judge and a Jury wrestled
yesterday with a very unusual case , re
lates the Plttsburg Dispatch. The princi
pals arc both dead , and , by one of the queer
provisions of the law on evidence , the per
sons who knew anything about the transac
tion causing the litigation wcro barred from
testifying. In consequence the Jury woa
left to a conclusion from the testimony ot
persons who knew nothing about It.
Practically , It Is a case of the dead against
the dead. Thu suit Is that of Charles
Pfclfcr. administrator ot Mm. Anna 1C.
Kalbfcll , against the Safe Deposit and Trust
company , administrator ot John Kalbfcll. ti
In 1834 Kalbfcll married Mrs. Pfelforll
She was the tljlrd wlfo and ho was her.
second husband. Doth wcro then CO years'
old. " She died a year after Kalbfcll. She
had three- sons by her flrst husband and
Kalbfcll bad eight children by his former.
wives. They had no children by the last
marriage. ,
Kalbfcll loft no will , and at his death bin
widow received her dower Interest In Ills
real estate , which ceased at her death. Ho
left no personal property , and the title to
the real estate passed to his children. Mnr.1
Kalbfcll's children , however , presented sT
claim against Kalbfell's estate. Mrs. Kalb-M
fell had Inherited f5,000 from her first bus- ,
band , Jacob Pfclfcr. This , It was asserted ;
she had loaned to her second husband. Hq
had never repaid It , and It was claimed
his estate owed It to the estate of his wtfo.
which would go to her children. Payment
was refused and the suit followed. '
The children ot both Kalbfcll and hU.
wlfo know all the details of the transactions
between them , but at the trial yesterday
they were barred from being witnesses. '
Mrs. Kalbfell's children , who are Interested
In the plaintiff's aldo ot the case , could
not testify because Kalbfell Is dead , and '
Kalbfell'e children could not testify because )
Mrs. Kalbfoll Is dead.
The rule Is that where the principal on-
ono sldo Is dead those interested on thoj
other sldo cannot testify , because the dead
person cannot admit or rcfuto their asser
tions. and It would make tbo testimony ;
one-sided. In this Instance It had no side ;
As a result of this condition the plaintiffs
had to rely on the testimony ot outside
witnesses. They know nothing of the loan
and could only testify to remarks they had '
heard made by Mr. or Mrs. Kalbfcll con
cerning It. Then the problem was be
qucathcd to the Jury. , ,
