And we make a motion at this time that this trial be declared a mistrial. The defendant has been irreparably prejudiced by the reading of that statement.

The Court: I will leave it stand. Any question you wish to ask Mr. Donaldson? He has got to get back to his court? Ask him if you want him, or else excuse him.

Mr. Wilson: Are you through with him? That is all.

"Mr. Keidan: "That girl she told me.'

The Court: “That girl she told me.' Is that the language of the deceased prior to his death in the hospital?

The Court: It may be.
Mr. Keidan: That is all. We rest.

“Mr. Wilson: At this time I desire to move that the entire dying declaration be stricken out for the reason that it was not made under the fear of impending death; the testimony of Dr. Walker being that this man was not in danger of death until two days
