IN  THE  SELECTION  OF  THE  JURY.
---------
PLAINTIFF  USING  A  CRUTCH
---------
Alleges He was Permanently Crippled in Street Car Accident at the
Capital City -- another New Suit from Indianapolis.
----------
          All of the morning session in the circuit court today wa[sic] taken in selecting the jury for the trial of the case of  John Rist, of Indianapolis, against the Indianapolis Traction & Terminal Company and the Terminal Company and the jury was not sworn till this afternoon.  The twelve men selected are  John Hirschauer,  Urban Ensminger,  George Kehrt,  Riley Sedgwick,  Elmer Swift,  Howard Mull,  Merrett Brown,  Luther Briley,  William E. Lee,  George Chesser,  John L. Huffman,  and  Cyrus Carmony.
          In his complaint Mr. Rist, whose home is at 422 south Meridian street, Indianapolis, is asking $10,000 of the defendant on account of personal injuries he received by a fall from a car in Indianapolis December 24, 1910.  That he is still suffering from his injuries is indicated by the fact that he appeared in court this morning using a crutch and cane.  He is represented by Wray & Campbell, of this city, and Edward Little and son, of Indianapolis.  Attorneys for the defendant are Hord & Adams and Carter & Morrison, of this city, and  M. E. Foley, of Indianapolis.
          The accident in which Mr. Rist suffered occurred at the intersection of Washington and Illinois streets.  He alleges he had boarded the car after it stopped and that he stepped from the front platform to the running board of the car to allow some other passengers to alight, when the car was started very suddenly, and he was thrown into the street.  He suffered a broken hip and alleges he is permanently crippled.  According to his complaint he was unable to leave the hospital for eight weeks and he charges the accident was due to the carelessness and negligence of the crew.  The case came here on change of venue from Marion county.
          Early this afternoon a continuance till tomorrow morning at eight-thirty o'clock was granted in the case at the request of the plaintiff, who alleged that he had been unable to get his most important witness, Abraham Sapperstine, court.  Judge Blair immediately ordered an attachment issued to the sheriff of Shelby county for Mr. Sapperstine commanding him to appear forthwith in court.

----------
Clell Lee Shot Thru Hip
by Gun in Hands of Millard Debaun ---
Latter says the shotting was accidental ---
Gave Bond of $800 Today.
----------
          While shooting at a target on a post in the yard of his own home, Saturday afternoon,  Millard DeBaun,  as he claims, accidentally shot  Clell Lee  thru the hip.  The wound is not a serious one.  Dr. Pettigrew, of Lewis Creek, attended the injured man.
          The two men live in Washington township on adjoining farms.  Lee is twenty-eight years old and a son of  David Lee.  DeBaun is twenty-five years old and is a son of  J. G. DeBaun.  Lee charges that the shot was intentional and thru his father has filed an affidavit against DeBaun in the court of  Squire Webb, of this city.  DeBaun appeared in court this morning and gave bond in the sum of $800 with his father and  Charles Drake  as surety for his appearance in the squire's court on June 13 at ten o'clock for preliminary hearing.  Lee charges intent to kill.
          DeBaun says he purchased a new gun in this city Saturday and was trying it on a target in the yard of his home.  The gun was a Marlin 30-30, but the bullet which struck Lee is supposed to have come from a Marlin 25-20, an old gun which DeBaun was trying with the new one.  When the shot was fired which struck Lee, he with his father was seventy-five yards or more away from the post on which the target hung.  They had left home to ascer-

Lee had been employed on the woman’s farm as a farm hand previous to the marriage.

          Rachel Leehas filed a complaint for divorce from Theodore Lee, in which she makes some very tough charges against Theodore, to whom she sets forth she was married on September 25th, 1868.  She charges Theodore is an habitual drunkard and has been guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment towards her.  She alleges that some time since he assaulted her with a knife, threatening at the same time to cut her heart out, and she believes was only prevented from injuring her by the interposition of his brother.  She also declares that some years ago, when she was about to become a mother, he beat and choked her in the most violent manner, producing a miscarriage, and almost causing her death.  She further says that he has for several years past accused her of adultry and with intending to poison him, and for weeks at a time has been in the habit of sleeping with a knife under his pillow, with which he threatened to kill her if she did not occupy the same bed with him.  She also says that he has repeatedly threatened to burn down the house if she ever applied for a divorce.  She asked for and obtained a restraining order forbidding him from disposing of any of his property.
