prosecutor J. B. Handlan conciuaea nia
argument to the Jury thla afternoon the
end of tha trial of Mra. I.aura Farnsworth
Schenk. charged with poisoning her hus
band. John O. Schenk. had been reached
and her fata was In the handa of the
Jury, which Immediately retired.
At S o-clock the Jury had not returned
a verdict and when a deputy eherlff went
to the Jury room to take the Jurors to sup
per, he found them with their coats off
and apparently In the height of a heated
discussion. The Jury asked half an hour
more before going to supper In which time

the end of the half hour they had no def
inite answer to aubmlt and were taken
out to the evening nieal with Instructions
to oreturn at 7:30 and continue delibera
tion's. Judge Jordan announced that he
would wait until 1 a.m., when, if no ver
dict waa reached the Jury would be
Mra. ftchenk Collapaea.
Shortly 'after Prosecutor Handlan fln-
Ishod his argument and the Jury waa re
tiring. Mrs. Schenk collapsed and waa led
from the court room between her attar-
ney, j, J. t'. U uncn ana iepuiy rnerm
Thomas Kelly. Her face was awollen and
distorted almost beyond recognition by her
constant sobbing. It waa only when the
argumenta were begun, when sympathy
was asked for her by her attorncya that
she gave way.
tShe had retained her composure during
the scathing comments upon the state's
witnesses by the last of her attorneys to
seak, S. O. Boyce, but again grave way
under the bitter Invective and fierce ar
raignment of Prosecutor Handlan. The
accused woman fell heavily forward on
the table early In the argument.
Mr. Handlan axked the Jury to show no
mercy to a woman who had deliberately
violated her marriage- vowe, snaring young
Dan Phillips with her wiles and had then
coldly, calmly plotted to kill by slow poison
the husband who had given her a name,
had lavished upon her automobiles, costly
clothing. Jcwele and everything which tha
heart of woman could desire. Her' heart
Is flint," ha shouted. "(Ttterly Incapable
of human aympathy, love or affection. Give

contaminate and di grade them with her
presence? My God. gentlemen, you know
this woman Is guilty as h 1 Itself and
there Is but one place for her.
Had Cold-Blooded Porpoae.
"One of the most horrible things It has
ever been my lot to come In contact with
waa when thla woman looked upon the
murder of her husband tn tha cold-blooded
light of a alinple proposition. When un
successful herself she offered another $1,000
to do the work for her.
"Coldly, calmly, fiendishly, she asked the
voman of whom ahe would have made a
tool to place the poisoned medicine beside
her unsuspecting husband'a bedside that
he relgbt reach out In the dim light of the
sick room In the night and awallow It
"But even this was not the climax of
the flerdlshness of that woman sitting
there.' That came when she contemptuously
referred to the deters of charity at the
hospital where her husband was lying at
the Mlnt of death who were going about
on their errands of mercy and charity as
'black eiled hypocrites.' That waa the
acme of all. a foul mouthed harpy auch aa
she tn apeak of those aa far above her aa
heaven Is above the underworld as 'hypo
crites' while they were doing all In their
power for him whom she thought to slay."
Mr. Handlan himself waa almost over
come with his strenuous day, following
the long strain of the trial and at the con
clusion of hla address he went to his home
for a rest.

the defense at the morning session and
dwelt principally on the untenablllty of

flclal offering would be made to aatlsfy aj
popular demand to give character and i
standing to the admlnlatratlon." '
Having brought the president Into tne
discussion the Kentucky senator profess
edly undertook to eliminate him from It.
Referring to the frequent assertion In the
public press lhat the prealdent la using his
personal. If not hla official, Influence
against Mr. Ixrlmer. Mr. Paynter said he
desired to resent the Imputation against
Pvvrely a I. emulative Act.
"The president Is a great lawyer," he
said, "and knowa that the constitution di
vided our government Into branches, and
that It waa Intended that one branch ahould
not invade the province of another. The
president knowa that the senate Is made
the Judge of election of Ita members; there
fore the constitution denies to the execu
tive and Judicial branchea the right to de
termine who la entitled to a seat In this
body. Certainly the president would not
attempt to violate the spirit. If not the
letter of the constitution, which he haa
promised to obey."
Referring to Senator Bevarldga and the
minority report he presented, attacking the
Lcrimer election. Mr. Paynter remarked:
"If he committed an error In the prep
aration of the minority report. I think he
is entirely excuaable. The aenator evi

Mr. Paynter defended the character of
Senator Lorlmer, who, he said, waa "a

fair visitors surprised all hy their numbeis
and tha Interest shown In the exhibits.
As was naturally expected they took a
great deal of Interest In the l.uther Bui

was remarkable to note the keen appre
ciation they took In the more serious
things, such as good road building, dry
farming. Irrigation and the many other
things which are supposed to hold mora
attractiveness for the aterner sex, who rt -eclve
so much credit for building empitta.
It was a surprise tn tho l.nnd Show man
agement that the women showed that thev
are, too. Interested In the progre.ua and
development of the west.
Three Clllea Iteprraen ted.
There were women- present from Omnha,
South fmaha and Council Bluffs yester
day, and everything was arranged that
they might receive the greatest benefits
of a visit to the I.and Show. For Instance,
California did Itself proud In the distribu
tion of the famous Fresno raisin bread,
which waa baked by the V. V. Steam bak
ery In Omaha especially for the Fresno
(Cal.) Chamber of Commerce. The women
found the music ofc the Hawntlan singers
and the Land Show concert hand enpe
daily to their liking, and everyone present
felt that she had been well repaid. Among
the women present during the earlier
hours were those from the various thea
ters. They were Riiests of the' manage

Mrs. Cameron MaUea Addreaa.
"Wo are gathered here this afternoon to
pay tribute to that wonderful acope of
country, the west. Potentlnl with Its
latent possibilities, fraught with dangers
though It be, this has ever been the battlo
cry of civilisation.
"Iing beftire the day of Horace Greeley
and his maxims the advice has been given
to the young man, "Go west and grow up
with the country."
"Our own broad prairies, fertile lands of
prosperous Nebraska, were once a desert
that has been literally made to 'blossom
as the rose" In great crops of golden corn
and wheat. The cry of "Westward, Ho" Is
still with us. What stimulus Is here given
Jaded ambition; what new Ufa and vigor
thrills the sluggish brain of the ever
wearied office worker; what novelty here
tempts the satiated rich man of the eastern
city. The broad, free unlimited expanse of
western lund opens a new vision of hope,
health and promise.
"Dr. Wiley of the United States bureau of
chemistry declares, 'In those parts of tha
country where we live, nearest to nature,
where we have the food fresh and tha
most outdoor life there Is developed tha
strongest type physically of American man
hood and womanhood; and the consented
centers, where the people live In an unnat
ural way, furnish the environment that
produces the weakest type.' Where can wa
come closer to nature, have the freshest
food and live outdoor life ao freely and un
restrainedly as In the open, on prairie, in
forest or by mountain stream where food
is represented In the speckled beauties
darting hither and thither?
Women Played Ilia Part.
"In the early days of hardship and
pioneering, as now, woman stood ever
ready to cheer and brighten the home, the
then rude hut of the early westerner.
American womanhood has kept abreast of
civilization and her Interest baa ever been
