Thu Prisoner's Appearance.
Slender, erect, and more youthful
than his pictures make him appear, and
with an added delicacy given Ida natur
nlly clear cut and refined face by his
long conilncment in prison Holmes
arose to his feet and addressed the
court. His voice was weak and Quiv
ering like that of a man who has been
ill and hardly carried the short dis
tance that separated him from the
court. He announced that he would
not accept the lawyers appointed by
the court, and that he would conduct
his own defense. A hum of astonish
ment went around the court room, but
alone, and without a friend by his side,
the Iron nerve that has enabled this
man to leave behind him a trial of death
without a show of compunction or re
morse bore him up under tho trying
ordeal of the desertion of his counsel.
Holmes exercised his right of chal
lenge, and before the jury was ob
tained eighteen men had been set aside
by him. When court reconvened this
afternoon Holmes Fat In the dock bus
ily engaged taUng notes during his
terrible arraignment by the district at
torney in his opening argument.
An occasional Hush thnt suffused his
cheek, and once In a while a blight
lifting of the eye brows when the dis
trict attorney became particularly
earnest, were tho only marks of emotion
exhibited by Holmes. When the dis
trict attorney had concluded his ar
gument Holmes requested thnt he be
nllowed light and writing materials In
his cell in the county prison. This was
granted him, and then Holmes asked to
be allowed to see his wife.
A sharp Interchange of dialogue oc
curred between the prisoner and the
district attoreny as to which wife he
wanted to see. and Anally Holmes was
driven to sny thnt it was the last wo
man who had been deceived Into
marrying him. This womnn has refuse-1
to see Holmes, but he obtained
a promise from the court that a letter
should lie given her tonight and thnt,
If she would comnly an answer to It,
should be sent to htm from her. Here
court adjourned until tomorrow morn
ing. After the ad'ournmcnt of court,
Judge Arnold stated that he would not
press the ense for disbarment against
Messrs. Shoemaker and Rotan, In view
of the fact that Holmes had refused
counsel and would conduct his own
PAY FOR A HROIvKN HEART.
Widow, Aged 50, Awarded $25 In a Suit
Afjnlnst a Trlfler of 70.
Maseoutnh, III., Oct. 28. Twenty-five
dollars Is the price a Jury iit upon
the broken heart of Mrs. Barbara Kast
ner, a widow of B0 years, who sued
riark Selbert, ased 70 years, for breach
of promise. She assessed her wounder
affections nt the modest sum of $5,000,
but the Jury, after wrestling with the
evidence all night, concluded that $25
was sufiicient balm. The evidence
showed that for a time Mr. Selbert
made violent love to the widow, and
promised to marry her. Matters moved
along smoothly enough until a hand
some widow from Lebanon appeared
upon the scene and laid selge to the
affections of Slebert.
With the Inconslstancy of his sex, he
deserted tho old love for the new, and
Mrs. Kastner, realizing thnt. her
chances were diminishing with ad
vancing years, dragged the faithless
but frisky old man Into court to an
swer for his course. The stories of the
courtship kept the spectators In an
uproar during the entire trial.
