Bxanafne ' Crnntree In Court. '
On cross-examination he said that he
had never had a good opportunity to ex
amine the accused. This he did in the court
room with Major Brmtton. Dr. Hill went
over to the accused and said, "Lisle turn
toward the window and let me see your

but that the accused s hands trembled
when extended and he was nervous. He
had found no evidence of delusions at Des
. The accused had claimed that the bullet
wound, which was slight, In his chest, had
been made by a revolver fired by Captain
Raymond and he had also Insisted that
Captain Raymond was not dead. If Crab
tree had kept his gun out of the arm chest
the Saturday before the killing and If he

If he . had beer) fully normal at the time
of the shooting, this would, also negative
the theory of Insanity. If It was shown
that , the accused had been at nearly all
times normal since the shooting, the wit

way towards negativing the theory of de

offioer had been satisfactory
this would also, show him to be sane.
Baals 'for Diagnosis.
At this point Colonel Banister, a mem

the Department of the Missouri, asked the
witness whether or not the principles of
such a diagnosis as he had made of the
accused Were based on the fact of Ha hav

admitted that this was so. He then ad

twenty minutes before he made This dlag

Colonel Banister, Dr. Hill admitted that he
would not want to go before a body of
alienists and have his reputation rest on
such a diagnosis, as he made In the case
of Crabtree at Des Moines. To another
question he admitted that ah four years
of honorable aervloe In the Marine corps,
with the consequent rigorous physical ex

He had answered the questions otth wit

In discussing "The Chemistry of Bleached
Flour," Dr. II. W. Wiley, ehlrf chemist of
the Department of Agriculture, confined
himself to the technical aid of the sub
ject, saying, it was not hi Intention to
give an opinion on the effect of bleached
flour on the human system or It use In
concealing Inferiority or promoting fraud
Exposure to sunlight or air, constituting
what Is known a "aging." produced a
certain whitening In flour, he said, by
chemical mean this change of tint oould
be produced Immediately so far as appear
ance was concerned,, and a perfectly ne
flour made to look like an old one. In the
highest grades of flour the inner or whit

ous processes used In ohemlcally treat
"The atmosphere, itself, probably due to
the preeence of oxone, produces In a few
months practically the same effect so far
as color Is concerned as Is produced by the
bleaching process," said Dr. Wiley. "But
In addition to the bleaching of the flour,
other changes go on which In the mind
of a great many consumer, Improve the
quality. Therefore, there I a general Im
pression, probably founded upon fact, that
old flour, or at least certain flour ground
from old wheat. Is superior to new flour
or flour made from freshly grown wheat"

RHF.IMS, Aug. 26 Hubert Latham, th
French aviator, today took glorious re
venge for the hard luck which h experl
enod In hi recent atti-mpt to cro th
English channel, and hi Indefatigable but
hitherto unsuccessful effort to accomplish
some notable achievement during the pres
ent meeting by establishing a new world's
record for distance, 164 kilometer 660
meters, 6r 88.88 mile. Latham covered
flften laps, or 160 kilometer, in 2 hour
13 minutes 9 seconds and the full distance
in 2:18:&fc. which also are world's records,
the flight being at th rat of about SMi
kilometers an hour, as compared with 63H
made by Wright at LeMans, and a fraction
under fifty made by Paulhan yesterday.
Except for the one lap speed records
made by Blerlot and Curtlss, this week,
and Paulhan's tlmt record In th air.
Latham now holds every record for dis
tance and speed. Like Paulhan, he de
scended only when th gasoline tank was
Benntlfnl nnd ImsretalT.
Nothing could have exceeded the beauty
and Impresslveness of the prolonged flight
In graoe of lines no other aeroplane here
compares with Latham's monoplane. The
lightly tilted planes from the long sklff
llke body give it a resemblance, when
close to a winged canoe, while sailing
high up In the air It look from a dis
tance Ilk a mammoth dragon fly. For
an hour, with fluttering wings Ilk a liv
ing thing, It fought it way against the
storm of rain and wind at an average
height of VA feet mounting higher aa th
wind rose, until during th worst of th
torm It was up fully 800 feet The con
tention of the advocate of th biplane
that th monoplane would be unable to
live In a strong breeie ha been amply re

another aeroplane of the same typ, mad
A flight of more than seventy kilometers,
and after ha had finished In th afternoon
Count D Lambert covered 114 kilometer
(72.8 miles) lh commanding fashion. Three
flight, therefore, in a single day, totalled
more than 210 miles.
Blerlot Machine Damaged.
Olenn H. Curtlss, the American, had two
practice spins but although his maohlne
behaved splendidly its speed was disap
pointing. An accident whloh Blerlot suf
fered about dusk may improve Curtlss'
chances for th international cup. While
trying to alight in front of th tribune
with a passenger aboard his big eighty
horse-power machine Blerlot crashed into
a fence, the wing and . propellor being
broken. He narrowly missed killing sev
eral of the spectators. Whether or not
the motor was injured ha not been defi
nitely determined. If so, Curtlss' most
dangerous rival ha been put at disadvan
tage, aa Blerlot intended to us th
wrecked machine In the international
event Although h qualified with An
other. Rougler, also while giving an exhi
bition, landed among a crowd lunching In
th grass and slightly Injured two women
and a rnah. Brerlbt" Insist that hla acci
dent was not due' to recklessness, with
whloh h wa charged by the crowd. H
assert that a squadron ot dragoon wa
moving across th field and crowded him
toward th fence, compelling him to
choose between landing among th horse
or Into the barrier.

Latham, who made thirty kilometer
twice today in leas than twenty-six minutes,
probably will use No. 29 In the final of the
speed oontest on Sunday. He oould afford
to take a one-tenth handicap, a a repeti
