The trial of Gertrude Simpson, the 15- year-oldgirl who shot and killed her father, Dr. Simpson, at Creeds a few weeks ago, was had last week. The state tried to~h0w that the motive for tbe killing was the life insurance carried by the doctor. The evidence showed con- elusively that at the t~me of the shooting the girl's life was not iu danger and that the shooting was unnecessary for her immediate protection. The instructions of the judge were quite strong for the people, but the jury considered that the action of Dr. Simpson prior to the shoot- ing was a sufficient provocation for tha act and further took into consideration the youth of the girl and her relation to the deceased, and they brought in a ver- dict of not guilty after being out but 4,5 minutea.
