(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, June lS.-(8peclal.)-The
somewhat famous Oreenwell case from
Mexico will not be finished immediately.
The case has assumed some peculiar phases
since It was started. Oreenwell Is accused
of murder In Mexico. He was arrested In
Davenport and held, awaiting the requisi
tion of the Mexican government. He was
brought to Des Moines for a preliminary
hearing before Clerk McArthur of the fed
eral court, acting as a commissioner, and
this hearing has developed Into a trial for
murder, la which the Mexican government
appeara as prosecutor, and an attorney la
here from Mexico to see that the case Is
prosecuted to the finish. But the proceed'
Inge are so peculiar that the attorneys have
been having trouble. One rule in regard to
such matters was that while the testimony
of tho Mexican government might be shown
by depositions that of the defense must be
by oral testimony. The impossibility of
putting up a good defense here by oral
testimony waa apparent and so the at
torneys In the case telegraphed the Mex
ican ambassador for permission to make a
showing for the defense by depositions. In
order to get these a thirty days' continu
ance was agreed to.. In the meantime the
attorney for the Mexican government will
remain here and Oreenwell will be sent
back to jail at Davenport.

We Intend to live up to every letter of

can't keep the numan body on ice, and the drinking of ice-cold drinks
does more harm than good because it stops digestion and chills the in
