WHITE PLAINS, N. T.. July 13,-Evelyn
Nesblt Thaw, pretty as ever, petulent rind
chool-(tlrllsh, and dressed In the familiar
blue which she affected so much during
the trial of her husband, Harry K. Thaw,
for the murder of Stanford White, was on
the stand for more than an hour before
Justice .Mills in the supreme court here
today, subpoenaed by the state In its fight
to keep Thaw in the asylum for the crim
inal Insane at Matteawan.
But for the absence of the dainty eton
collar which Mrs. Thaw wore so much
Curing both of the murder trials, she ap
peared today much the same as she did
When District Attorney-Jerome- was trying
to send Harry Thaw to the electric chair.
She Is a little more mature, perhaps, but
he showed the same glrllshnesB that won
sympathy for her while testifying hereto
fore, and at times she was petulent to the
extent of tears.
Her Story Helps Thaw.
Though called by the state in an en
deavor to prove Harry Thaw Irrational,
what Roger Clarke, the deputy attorney
general, drew from her Hps created rather
a, favorable Impression for her husband.
She was excused from tse stand shortly
after 4 o'clock, but was resubpoenaed by
the state and Will probably appear again
Upon the ultimate outcome of Evelyn
Thaw's testimony the state's fight largely
rests. Mr. Clarke tried hard today to get
her to admit that Thaw had threatened
lier life when she visited him on one occa-
Child of Four Would Scratch Her
Head for Hours When Fifteen
It Got Worse Hair Came Off
In Spots Hundreds of Dollars
Spent in Vain Cuticura Soothed
Like Cold Water on a Burn and
"When I was four years old a humor
Nim out on rny scalp. It would make
a thick scab In one night, itching and
burning terribly. Mr father spent
many hundreds of dollars trying to find
a' doctor who could cure this humor,
but none of them oould aver help it even
litUe bit. At th. age of fifteen year
I had the measles, and afte- that tha
ore became maturated and I had to
oak ray hair out before I oould comb it.
My hair cam off in spots and my head
was in a bad shape. ,
"About this tint a friend of my
father suggested ha try Cutioura for me.
My father took this advice and bought
tha Cutioura Soap. Cutioura Ointment
and Cuticura Raaolvent. I used them
faithfully and to my surprise they
stopped the itching at onoe, like cold
water to a burn. In a week my head
was clean from tha scab but was very
red and inflamed, but I had experienced
mora relief from the terrible itcmng anu
slon after his committment to Matteawan.
But turning appeallngly to the court she
repeatedly refused to answer his questions,
and after a clash between counsel Justice
Mills ruled that he would hold the conver
sation In which the threat was supposed
to have been made a confidential one be
tween husband and wife, and therefore
privileged until the state presented proof
to show that Daniel O'ltetlly, the New
York lawyer, who was present at the time,
was not then acting as counsel for both
Mr. and Mrs. Thaw. This Deputy Attor
ney General Clarke promised to do, and
Mrs. Thaw was excused after identifying
a number of papers In her husband's hand
Many Witnesses Favor Thaw.
Aside from Evelyn Thaw's appearance,
which was the sensation of the day, the
testimony was much like that of yester
dayaccounts of witnesses called by
Thaw's counsel, all of whom attested to
his apparent soundness of mind. The
eagerness to see Mrs. Thaw was Just as
Intense as when she appeared dally at the
criminal courts building.
A throng of curious spectators crowded
Into every available foot of space In the
new court room, the rumor having gone
out earlier In the day that she would
testify. When she left the stand such
a crowd followed her that she had to take
refuge In the district attorney's office.
When she first entered the court room
and made her way to the stand there was
a buzx of excitement and a rlppple of
comment; but she showed little concern.
On the stand she was reluctant to answer
Mr. Clarke's questions and had to be
Instructed to do so a number of times by
the court.
Evelyn Is Petulent.
The tears came to her eyes when Justice
Mills ruled against her and she turned
to him and said petulantly:
I guess I will have to obey for I cannot
afford contempt proceedings or go to jail.
My husband Is not paying me anything
now and I haven't enough money to pay
She told little, If anything, to show that
Harry Thaw Is Insane, while a score or
more of lay witnesses, who had observed
Thaw at various times since his commit
ment to Matteawan asylum, spoke in his
favor. The witnesses consisted of citliens
from Feekslll and Poughkeepsie, where
Thaw was Incarcerated for several weeks
In the jail pending further habeas corpus
proceedings, attendants from the asylum
and various friends of the Thaw family
who had visited the prisoner. They all
testified that his conversation and actions
appeared to them to be entirely rational
Keeper Is Help to Thaw.
Perhaps the most favorable bit of test!
mony for Thaw today was that of Frank
Toomey, his bodyguard for five or six
months at Matteawan. He said that Thaw
had exhibited no irrltatlonal tendency
during that time.
The state's representatives announced
that they had retained Dr. Austin Flint
and Dr. Charles B. McDonald, who, with
Dr. Amos B. Baker of Matteawan, will
make up the stste's trio of alienists along
lines agreed upon by counsel yesterday. Dr,
Flint was In court. Thaw's counsel had
not decided what alienists to call.
It was agreed, however, that the state's
alienists are to be permitted to make
physical examination of Thaw In the White
Plains jail. The mental examination to
test his sanity is to be conducted in open
court, by the lawyers, prompted by the
burning than ever before. I did not ex-
ing oould do that, but I had to use some-
pact to be cured, as I thought that noth-
thicg all the time and Cutioura was
cheaper than doctors.
"After some time, to my surprise, I
woke to the fact that my bead waa
cured. It was as free from tha disease)
M though I bad never suffered. 1 am
now forty-two and have never had any
sign of my old trouble since I was cured.
I owe health, happiness and life to
Cutioura. Every one thought it was in
curable. I used to dream sometime
that I was oared but thought it never
oould be, but Cuticura made the dream
come true. Fancy a child sitting up in
bed until tan or eleven o'clock scratch
ing her head I 1 couldn't help it either,
the itching was terrible, night and

LINCOLN, July 13 (Special.) Arthur
Mullen, state oil Inspector, who defendei
the nonpartisan Judiciary act before the
supreme court will file a motion tomorrow
for a rehearing In the case. At least to
day Mr. Mullen said he expected to file
the motion. Mr. Mullen Is not satisfied with
the derision of the court and Is anxiously
looking for the opinion In the case.
In the meantime Tom Allen, chairman of
the democratic stste committee, has sent
out letters to the members of the execu
tive committee asking for opinions regard
ing tne calling of a state convention. While
the lew passed by the late democratic
legislature provides for a state convention,
Mr. Allen Is not sure the democratic party
will obey the law.
Should the democrats hold a convention,
there Is no question but what a big fight
would occur over a platform, so the lead
ers sre of the opinion this fight may be
avoided by simply failing to call the con
vention. Rx-Conrlrt Has Smooth Scheme.
Reports have reached the penitentiary
that convicts whose terms have expired
are working a clever game to get money
out of relatives of convicts still confined.
One woman living In South Omaha, the
mother of a convict, was called upon the
other day by an ex-convlct, who Introduced
himself as a penitentiary guard. He In
formed the mother that her son was In a
bad way and was not receiving decent
treatment at the hands of the penitentiary
officials, and he desired $10 with which to
buy some needed delicacies. The mother
dug up the money and the ex-convlct
then started for the street car line. It
began to rain and the ex-convlct was In
vited back to the house and remained all
lght. After he left the next day the
oman discovered that a boarder at the
house was out a gold watch and a 175 dla
mond pin, which It is supposed the ex
convict took.
The mother then wrote to the warden
sklng about her son and was Informed
that he was doing well. She was also In
structed hereafter to Investigate before
she gave up any more money to supposed
guards. This was the second 110 this
woman had given over to supposed guards
The authorities are now after the ex-
Pardoned Convict Guard.
Jacob Frahm, who was pardoned by Gov
ernor Bhallenberger July after having
served fourteen years of a life sentence,
will not leave the prison. Warden Smith
as made him a guard and he now walks
the east wall. Frahm did not care to
leave the place which has been his home
for so long. He was sent up for wife
murder and still maintains his Innocence
Governor's Absence Canses Delay.
Governor Shallenberger's Chautauqua
dates have seriously Interfered with the
organization of the now printing board
created by the late legislature. Tha gov
rnor was made a member of the new
board to take the place of the state treas
urcr. Yesterday was the date set for the
organization, the secretary of state and
the auditor being the other members, but
tho governor was not on hand and some
bids for supplies were not opened on that
account. The governor was also out of
the city when the board of purchase and
upplles meets. Lieutenant Governor Hope

Dope Treatment Snecessfel.
Warden Smith of the state penitentiary
Is still treating his dope patients and he
has hsd such success that one batch
wh.rh he has confined, taking the treat
ment, has quit asking for the poison.
Every prisoner taking the treatment, th
warden said, seemed anxious to quit th
habit. The dope fiends were separated
from the other convicts and gradually
they are losing their desire for the rnor
phlne. When he started the treatment the
warden found one prisoner was using
drahm of morphine a day.

Don't think that there is no ginger ale better than imported
brands. There are many imported not so good as Hydro.'
If you pay twice what Hvdrox costs for imported, it's simply
because you don't know the facts.
Even the best imported ginger ales do not surpass sparkling
Hydrox when it comes to an actual comparison.
Make This Test
Simply compare Hydrox Ginger Ale with the "imported"
that you think is better. Fill several small glasses with each kind.
Serve one of each to several persons. DoiTt tell them which it
imported. Ask each person which he likes best.
Sip the two kinds yourself. Look for advantages in the "im
ported." Examine sparkling Hydrox for ginger ale faults. Let all
the doubt be in favor of "imported." Simply buy in the future.
