NEW TORK. Feb. 13.-Th Thaw trial
today wa limited to an afternoon session
cf less than two hours' duration, the morn
ing session ha vine been abandoned because
of the Illness of the wife of Juror Joseph
B. Bolton. The Juror waa allowed to visit
Ills home In company with two other jurors
and two court officers. He found his wife
suffering from double pneumonia and two
physicians certified that her condition waa
Yery serious. Bolton returned to the Jury
. panel In time for the afternoon session.
.. which began at 2:10 p. m., and adjourned at
' ..I ft. . , . . . . . .
; counsel by which the Juror might visit
ms noma accompanied by bailiffs tonight.
Juror Bolton this morning- appeared dis
trait, apparently taking little Interest. In
j the proceeding. . If. Mrs. Bolton's condl
. tlon continues so serious that her husband
' cannot give proper consideration to his
.' duties aa a Juror there may be an In-
definite postponement, all the other Juror
', remaining (ocked up, or perhaps a mis
trial. Dr. Evans, superintendent of the Insane
asylum at Mortis Plains, N. J.,' gave the
' only testimony toda. District Attorney
', Jerome reserved the -right to cross-ex-
'. amine the doctor.
Dr.. John T. Deemar of Klttannlng, Ta.,
''Was recalled Just before adjournment and
asked to state what he knew of the mental
; condition of John Ross, first counin of
Marry Thaw. Mr. Jerome objected to the
question on the ground that the relation
ship was too remote to permit the draw
ing of deductions as to hereditary Insanity.
Both question and witness were withdrawn
Thaw's False Irresalar.
Dr. Evans today detailed the results of
bis various examinations and physical
tenia in his visits to the defendant follow
ing the tragedy. He declared that there
waa a depression In the back of Thaw's
head of a most unusual character, but waa
unable to state Its significance.
Dr. Evans said Thaw's pulse action waa
the most extraordinary he had ever en
countered. The pulse would change beats
four times within one minute, the variance
being from twelve to twenty-four beats.
The pulse Indicated, he said, that the sym-
pathetic nervous system waa seriously at
fault. Dr. Evans declared he found no
traces of drug habits nor any of the tre
mors characteristic of excessive Indulgence
Dr. Evans said he felt it was extremely
unfair to him as a physician to require
him to separate his psychical examinations
of the defendant from the questions and
answers aa to his mental process. He was
interrupted by both Mr. Jerome and Mr.
Delmaa. and Justice Fltsaerald Aid: "Will
.you kindly confine yourself to answering
'questions and not giving expressions of
opinion. There Is some limitation
td the province of an expert.','
Effort to KitrlMf Trial.
As the result of a conference between
counsel Just before adjournment, Mr.
Jerome said Thaw's attorneys had turned
the will of the defendant over to him for
examination before It again, should be
formally offered In evidence. Mr.- Jerome
said he might or might not offer further
objection to It. - He did not wish to take
up the time by reading It over In court.
Counsel also agreed "that Mr. Jerome
should have the privilege of talking freely
with Dr. Deemer, and with Dr. Blngaman,
the Thaw family physician, about certain
testimony they have to offer. Mr. Jerome
said If he knew the nature of this he
might not have to occupy so much of the
court's time and crowd the record with
technical objections. In order to give him
the opportunity to learn the nature of
their testimony and expediate the trial, the
early adjournment today was ordered.
Tomorrow Mr. Delmaa will offer the will
In evidence. If It Is accepted It will be
read to the Jury. If It Is not accepted by
consent of the district attorney there Is
likely to be an extended argument Fol
lowing the disposition of the will Mrs.
Evelyn Thaw will resume the stand.

a note purported to have been given . by
William C. Bissell In 1898 of $5,600, payable

at 10 per 'cent per annum. Gandy claims
the note was given by Bissell and was to
be held In. escrow until litigation was ended

died In 1898. Gandy claims he then secured
the note from the holder of the same In
escrow, and flies this suit on what Is
claimed to be a copy of the note. A bril
liant array of legal talent Is lined up In the

GORDON, Neb.. Feb. 12. (Special.)
There Is deep concern In this community
at the sudden and mysterious disappear
ance of Glenn Moffatt, son of D. W. Mof
fatt, a prominent cttlxen of 'Gordon, from
his boarding place In Chicago, on the
morning of February 5, since when no trace
of the boy can be found. He Is a young
man, years of age, tall and of slender
build, dark hair and brown eyes, and was
on hi third year of a musical course In a
Chicago conservatory. Being of rather
delicate health and naturally nervous and
ambitious, the - long hours of .study and
practice doubtless overtaxed his mind and
body. He bad Just finished a hard exam
ination at the close of a term and his par
ent had sent him a draft for $100 t (A apply
on the next term's expenses. He cashed
the draft and on Tuesday morning of last
week enclosed $75 of the money In a letter
home to his parents, in which he said that
he had decided to quit school and go south
for his health. He left hi clothing and
book at his boarding place and disap
peared without ' warning. Two older
brother immediately left for Chicago and
with the aid of the. police have made a
diligent search of the city, but without
avail. It Is supposed that his mind became
unbalanced " from over-study arid' that he
has wandered away from the city. He is
naturally a bright boy with rar musical
talent and the pride of the home and com
