and he brought out some testimony
damaging to his own side. He called
Charles Benson, employe of the Gil

to borrow $5 or $10 from Benson

a blood blister on the right index

to how the blister was caused.

hotel, he drew testimony that he was
never drunk or quarrelsome while
he was a guest at these hotels.

during the afternoon. He seemed
to feel that his case was not strong.
