composed of Adair county men The State made a strong case against the accused the Jury being out only twentyfive minutes returning a verdict of life time in the penitentiary An effort was made upon the part of the defense to prove that Smith had been too intimate with Shipps wife but it failed many good citizens testifying that Mrs Shipp was a lady of excellent character It was a terrible murd
