NORWOOD, la., Nov. il (Hpeclal
Telegram.) The Jury .In the Larson
poison scandal case received Instructions
from Judgo Clyde at 6:30 tonight and
Immediately retired for deliberation.
Arguments In the case of Mrs. F.tta
I. arson, charged with the attempted
poisoning of her father, Douglas Khod
enbaugh, were In progress In Judge
Clyde's court hero today. '' Attorney X.
B. Pabln, representing the state, made
the opening plea to the Jury.
The testimony of the defense waa closed
last night, after Christian Larson, hus
band of the defendant, and himself
charged with participation in the case,
took the stand and corroborated his wife's
statements. He declared there had been
no plot to poison the elder Khodenbaugn,
denied that he had any knowledge of a
medicine cheat In flhodenbaugh's barn,
said to have contained the poison, and
said the ten lettera threatening the life
of Marlon Rhodehbaugh, the 16-year-old
sister of his wife, were forgeries.
Mrs. Larson, from the standpoint of the
defense, brought out the motive for the
case when she said;
"I have known that my father bad no
love tor me. He used to whip me at
least twice a week, and sometimes used
'a horsewhip on mo . i . . . i . t
Ilofore the arguments of attorneys were
begun, Judgo Clyde by a sweeping
ruling rrfused admission to most of the
rebuttal evidence offered ' by the stato.
Larson waa recalled -to the stand for a
few minutes this morning, but his testi
mony was unimportant.

(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Neb.. Nov. H.-(Fpc!al Tel
egram.) In a decision rendered liday the
supreme court, without deciding whether
he is a woman, nan declared that Jean
McKee is entitled to poescsnlon of the
books and records of the treaeurer of the
city of Alma. A mandamus suit was In
stituted iome time ago by Miss McKee
to obtain the records of the office from
Robert W. Torter, who declared that the
member of the weaker sex U tenable un
der the Inw of the state to hold office.
Another suit IS pending In which the sex
of Mlsa McKee in to be determined, this
being a quo-warrsnto proceeding.
In his dissenting opinion, Judge 8. H.
Rcdgwlrk executed the mom emphatic
i oast heard In the Nebraska supreme
court In many years. He declares that
there la no reason why the woman can
not hold the office of city Ireneuier ex
cept that the law does nut permit her
to do so. He asserts rather sarcantloally,
that no doubt If the attention of the
legislature Ms called to the matter It
might change the law at some future
sesalon, but. until then, he opines the
court should not attempt to legislate.
Further, the Judgo says that the majority
of the court seeks to seat a woman In
office before It decides whether she Is
eligible to bold such. A dangerous prece
dent Is the comment which the Jurlnt
makes on such a proceeding.
