mere matters of ancient history the rela

The documentary ivldence which the

of 1SX2, the pleadings in tile ease before the

In a journal entry by the court that the

the face could not have been made by mere

Nothtnsr to Indicate Fall.
There were no bruises about the head or
body to Indicate that he had fallen. The
nose was not . bruised, the blow having
struck Immediately under the nose. Had
he fallen from an eminence, especially In
the position he was found, the nose, which

The second witness was William I. Kin
dred, an employe of the water works at
Florence, who testified to the first dis
covery of th body, giving substantially the
same details that appeared in The Bee
Monday. He added that there were no
marks about where th body lay that In
dicated any struggle. . Tha body was lying
on its, breast, with one hand partly under
the body and the other arm lying length-
wise ot the body, with the palms of his
hands up. Burke's hat lay about five feet
southeast of th c-ooy. I ne nat was lying
with the erown up, ana ii aia noc snow any
Indications of having been In any struggle.
He stated further that he called to D. C.
Has and one or two others at the pump
ing station and they together examined
the body, but did not disturb It, but did
make a careful search all about ther for I
evidences of a, struggle, but could find none. 1
The body lay eighteen feet from the ash
car. and the witness was of the opinion
he could not hav fallen from the car, but
that the body had been placed.
Unas Tells His Experience.
D. C. Hass waa the next witness. He is
pipe superintendent at the pumping sta
tion. He told of Kiodred Informing him of the
body and then corroborated his version ot
the affatr. He said there was a pool of
blood under the bead.
"My first Impression." said Haas, "was
that he fell off tha cinder dump, having
been tripped by an 8xS piece of timber
