found it difficult to realize that they
were actually discussing, as one of the
expedients, the propriety of knocking
him on the bead and flinging his body
into the canyon.
The difficulty lay in the crude incred

For tbe first few miles tbe trail was
so difficult that speed was out of the
question, but later in crossing a high

and ten or twelve miles were covered
at a gallop.
When tbe canyon trail came out
upon broad uplinds and became a
country road, with ranches on either
hand, watered by irrigation canals
into which tbe mountain torrent was
diverted, there were no familiar land
marks to tell Blount whither his cap

Coca Cola A Poison?
Chattanooga, Tenn., March 15.
In the hearing of the United States
against a certain number of bar
rels and kegs of Coca£ola in the
Federal court here today, some of
the most interesting testimony yet
brought out was given by Dr.
Lyman F. Keiber, chief of the
drug department of the bureau of
chemistry, Washington, D. C.
Dr. Kebler is the chemist who
made a test of Coca Cola and to
day he testified that Coca Cola
contains caffeine, declared that to
each eight-ounce glass there was
one and one-fourth graius of caf
feine, which he says is poison,
Dr. Kebler cited many eminent
authorities in proof of his state
ment that caffeine is a poison and
referred to a number of deaths re
ported an being caused by its use.
Olio of these writers had reported
a owe where four and one-half
graina of the drug had produced
death, and ho declared that about
three glasses of Coca Cola con
tained this amount of caffeine." "
Dr. Itusby, for the govorment,
stated that no other product bore
the nameof either"coco"or "kola'
Government chemists stated
that Coca Cola contained neither
coca nor kol\ and the effort of
the government will be to prove
that the drink is nrisbranded.
Dr. Kobler testified an to finding
of vermin and bugs in the vats,
aa the result of his inspection of
tbe Coca Cola plant in Atlanta.
He futher testified that caramel
and brown sugar weroadded, and
"because of their opaqueness, tend
ed to conceal impurities in the
