Jk ntalning an index of documents for agri
cultural schools and a document for the

exhausted, has asked Senator Burkett to
retire a reprint of these two bulletins,

ing In this connection to know that the
Department of Agriculture has organized a
Teice of clerks especially to look after the
requests of schools and colleges In which
agriculture is taught , for finding bulletins
relating to the science of farming and
stock raising, and in many cases it has been
ascertained that the bulletins are being
used In graded and high schools for the

KANSAS CITY, May 9. Dr. Bennett
Clark Hyde, on trial charged with poison
ing Colonel Thomas H. Swope, took the wit
ness stand In his own defeusa late this af
ternoon. Using one of Dr. Twyman's ln
atrifments, said Dr. Hyde, he bled James
'.'Did Dr. Twyman say anything about
bringing the bleeding to a close?" Interro
gated Mr. Walsh.
Dr. Hyde tried to answer the question
by giving the substances of the conver
sation' between him and Or. Twyman, and
the lawyers wrangled over the responses.
The witness was plainly disconcerted and
seemed to be confused by the objections of
the attorneys. His face flushed and he
mopped the perspiration from his brow with
a handkerchief. Finally the squabbling
closed, and he answered:
"Dr. Twyman said something about
enough blood having been removed. He
never said, however, that we had as much
blood as should have been removed from
any man. We took In all. about two or
three 'pints of blood. Dr. Twyman stopped
the flow with a string."
"Was this too much to take from him?"
Sara Apoplexy Caused Death.
"Did he die from the effects of the bleed
ing or from apoplexy?"
"After the death did Dr. Twyman ever
say anything to you about the amount of
blood taken from Mr. Hunton?"
. JuuVe Latshaw ordered the question and
answer stricken out.
Dr. Hyde said he became acquainted with
Colonel Swope In December, 1908, and saw
him at his home on an average of twice
a month from that time until his death.
Colonel Swope asked him, said the witness,
If he thought strychnine tonice he was tak
ing was good for him, and he replied It was.
"How did Colonel Swope appear after he
quit drinking liquors?'' queried Mr. Walsh.
"He was weaker, paler and more despon
dent. His pulse was weak," answered the
Mrs. Hyde Pltlfol Witness.
From the ,llps of Mrs. B. C. Hyde 'the
Jurors In her husband's trial today heard
the story of the Swope tragedy.
Unused to the experience of testifying
before a crowded court room, Mrs. Hyde
made a pitiful spectacle the first few min
utes, she was on the stand. The mention
of the name of her cousin. Moss Hunton,
brought tears to her eyes, and she was
unable to speak.
The court room became silent. Attorney
Walsh ceased to question the witness. It
was feared she might collapse. But, after
sobbing for a few minutes, Mrs. Hyde
composed herself and was able to proceed
with her testimony. Thereafter she made
a good witness, speaking distinctly and
following the line of Interrogation without
The salient features of her testimony
were her declarations that:
Dr. Twyman adjusted the string which
stopped the flow of blood from Mr. Hun
ton's ibody. She did not request her hus
band to stop the bleeding.
Colonel Thomas H. Swope never cried out
on his death -ed that he wished he had
never taken the medicine Dr. Hyde gave
him. The millionaire's symptoms were en
tirely different from those described by
the nurses who testified for the state.
Miss Keller, the nurse, who swore Dr.
Hyde asked her to use her Influence with
Colonel Swope to have ths physician made
an administrator of the ' millionaire's es
tate overheard her and Dr. Hyde discuss
ing such a plan.

"My faith Is In the republican party as
a whole, a unit," declared Govenor Eber
hart of Minnesota, who Is In Omaha as the
guest of the Central Republlran club. "The
talk of Insurgency has been the subject
of many overdrawn and much exaggerated
stories In the eastern prints, but I am In
clined to the belief that tfie movement is
now very clearly toward parry solidarity.
"Minnesota stands for progressive leg
islation, but Minnesota republicans do not
believe in reading anybody out of the
party because some one has seen fit to
call him an Insurgent. .
Governor Kberhart says that while there
have been attempts to attrfch significance
to the part that Senator Knute Nelson of
Minnesota has taken in ths Bdlllnger
Finchot controversy he does not consider
that this has any relation xo party ques
tions. He is more than satisfied by the
election of Mayor U,. the republican
candidate for the niajwr&hlp'of' St. Paul.
"Keller'a election means more than a
republican victory," said Governor Eber
hart. "It means a bill of health for party
honesty. It has long been charged that
republicans, were in a combine with the
democrats to deliver to them the control
bf the city's affairs. The election of Keller
will set that at rest for once and all."

Governor Eberhart listened to the admin
