Vaughn nearly a year ago. today were
freed of the charges -against them In tha
circuit court here. Their rates ware nolle
proFoed by IToee-utlng Attorney Reiser of
Adair county, after Judge Fhelion had re
fuwl to grant the further continuance
a.-ked. The nnnmirx-ement wa greeted
a till applause by the friend of Mm
Vaughn and Dr. Mull, who crowded the
court rou:u. The widow appeared uncon
cerned. The Inability of Pr. Paul Srhweliler of
tha aiate univeralty, the prosecution's
poison expert, lo be present waa the rea
son for a request for a. continuance. Proe
nitor llfitf In rodlicei affidavits to this
effect, and Ii. K. B. Clement of Miron,
who waa a member of the medical com
mute appointed In November to examine
Dr. Scnweltxer, testified that In hla Judg
ment tha expert never would be In con
dition to take the aiand.

In refusing the continuance Judge Fhelton
said he believed Dr. 8c ha el tie.-, who la
more than at) yean old. never would be
able to appear In court. Helger'a term as
prosecutor expired today, and It In likely
that nothing more will ever be done In
Mrs. Vaughn was accompanied to the
court room by her mother, her sister, Mrs.
James Johnson and Mrs. Alice Blodgett
Of St. Louis.
Trof. Vaughn died In Ktrksville, Mo ,
suddenly on October 14, WV, after an In
teresting career aa an educator. In De
cember of the same year a-number of his
friends obtained an Investigation, and In
January, 1910, hla body waa exhumed. Then,
followed a bitter legal fight made by tha
widow upon Dr. Bchweitter's report that
he had found strychnine in the deceased
educator's stomach. Indictments were re
turned by a grand Jury at Klrkavllle a
few weeks later and the caaa brought to
Lancaster on a change of venue.

"Did you gat your bond?".
"Bond? What bond?"
"Why, man, you have to have a bond,
too. before you can take your seat." '
"By Jimlny, I knew I had forgotten some

"Quackenbuah defeated-' Town Major, not

by a German editor in hla district.
"Of course, Quaekenbuah a name does not

"Whan tha paper came out, Quacken

to Inform tha dry champion of what bad

'I'll go right down and have that mis
take corrected,' aaid Quackenbuah. But
before the paper (It waa a weekly) went
to praoa again, tha voters want to tha polls
and tho returns were counted, showing
Town Majors defeated by Quackenbuah."
Now that editor la thinking of moving
back to tha old country, for he cannot

"Homo of the Large Ton"
The "LeiterM mine territory; eight square miles J
that affords us the genuine "Zeigler" coal, is unlike
ANY other in the world. Just the same coal is found
NOWHERE else; no other coal so clean; so hot; can be
sold at $7.00 per ton.
The ONLY other coal as CLEAN as "Zeigler
doesn't possess TW0-THIRDS of "Zeigler" HEAT
value. Genuine "Zeigler" contains but lt of 1 per cent
sulphur; about the same as the famed Pocahontas,
Smokeless that brings $9.00. v v . v
It's false economy to buy a $5.00 or $6,00 coal; the
usual $5.00 or $8.00 coal giving you a never ending'
amount of grief in the shape of smoke and Impurities.
Then again, it's MORE folly to pay an added two dol-,
lars $9.00 per ton for a coal that does no more than
the genuine "Zeigler." ,
"Zeigler" is a soft coal, costs merely $7.00 per ton;
and was Omaha's most FAMOUS fuel when on the mar
ket two years ago.
"Zeigler" coal leaves a stove lid WHITE; doesn't '
soot; burns hot; exceedingly hot; lasts long.
