near Avocourt wood and Hill No. .104,
in the Verdun section still continues,
according to today's official state

The result was that llliott soon

Farmers' State bank of Decatur,
To get control he cast about De

was ready to retire from the banking
business, to buy the stock held by
Hastings. It is said by some at Deca

Turns Neat Profita.
With himself in control of a bank
at Decatur, Elliott began to make
good use of the experience he had
gained at Rosalie as "field man." He
continued his negotiations, dealings
and tradings with the Indians, but
now for himself and his own bank in
stead of merely on a commission for
The profits from these dealings
went into what he termed the "sun
dry commissions" account, lie had
another account also which he termed
the "legitimate profit" account.
It is said to have been from this
account that the 50 per cent dividend
was declared at the end of the first
year rf his regime. At the very time
that he declared this dividend, which
was August I, 1915, many loans had
been made and paper had been sold
with the moral guarantee of the bank
back of it, to such an extent that the
stock was already impaired.
It was at his point that he in
creased the capital stock to $2tf,00,
however, and thus the little bank stir
vived almost another year under his
magic regime before the state board
closed the doors.

ment explaining Casement's actions
The attorney general said Casement
described himself as the organizer of
the Irish volunteers, audi impressed
upon the Irish prisoners in Germany
that everything was to be Rained for
Ireland by Germany's winning the
war. Those prisoners who joined the
brigade he was attempting to form
were promised by Casement, the at
torney general asserted, that they
would be sent to Berlin as guests of
the German government. In the event
that Germany won a sea battle he
would land the brigade in Ireland to
defend that country against England,
and if Germany lost the war the Ger
man government would give each man
10 to i.,'0 and free passage to
"This is the plan conceived in lOlS,"
said the attorney general, "by the man
who in 1911 v.ss begging Sir Edward
Grey to convey his deep appreciation
to the king of the honor of knight
hood, which had just been conferred
The speaker added that Casement's
offer was treated with contempt by
a vast majority of the Irish prisoners.
Casement smiled and glanced toward
Third Man Still at Large.
Sir Frederick Smith told the story
of Casement's alleged machinations
in Berlin, with details of his trip by
submarine to Tralee, where he landed
on Good Friday with Bailey and a
third man named Monteith, who is at
large till. He also told of the send
ing of 20.000 riflrs from Germany to
Tralee and of how this ship was sunk
at Tralee and the crew was captured.
Bailey Join to Escape.
A statement from Bailey was read
by the attorney general. Bailey said
he joined the Irinh brigade at the sug
gestion of Camiiciit to see whether
it would be possible to get out of
Germany. After visit to the Ger
man foreign office, he ssid, he was
told to make ready to depart and
was taken on board the submarine
When they sighted Tralee he was
told the visit was in connection with
the volunteer movement. He was
transferred to a collapsible boat as
the submarine neared the coast. The
boat overturned a it reached the
surf. He had to wade ashort and
then went back to the boat for arms.
Hailev said he and Casement
reached Tralee and that Casement
went into the shop of a new agent
and inquired whether the command
ing officer had arrived. He was an
swered in the negative, Bailey got
into a motor car in which he was
Says Bailey ii Innocent
After the formal evidence had been
given by the police as to the reading
of the charge to Casement and
Bailey in the Tower of London,
Casement arose and said;
"Well, that man (pointing to
Bailey) is innocent. I think the in
dictment is wrongly drawn against
him." ; . , ,
Casement then offered to procure
counsel to defend Bailey, who, he
said, was without means.
The first witness was John Robin
son of Helfast, formerly a corporal
in the Royal army medical corps,
who was one of the prisoners taken
to Germany in the early stages of the
war and recently was released. He
said thatof 4,000 Irish prisoner gath
ered at Limburg to hear Casement'
exhortations between fifty and sixty
joined the Irish brigade.
Promise Made Prisoner.
Robinson first saw Casement in
the prison camp. He was wearing
"What was he doing?" asked coun
sel for the prosecution.
"Spouting about the Irish bri
gade," Robinson replied in a rich
hrrtgue. "Casement promised the
Irish prisoners 10 each if they
joined the Germans and passage to
America if Germany lost the war.
He also circulated pamphlets, in
cludinK Gaelic and American writ
inns, to further his cause."
John Cronin of Cork, formerly a
private of the Munster Fusilier,
corroborated Robinson. He ssid the
prisoners had been treated badly be
fore Casement began his work, but
that aubsequently the Germans were
more considerate. He said, how
ever, that those who declined to join
the Irish brigade "had their bread

Dr. Funk said a combination of

Wine of Cardui, would be useful in the
treatment of some conditions "which
did not involve malformation and
did not demand surgical treatment."
The alcohol in the solution he char
