15 years nnd who was the father of
her filx children.
Women tried in vain to comfort her
and the scene was an unusually pain

very friendly with Jewell, stepped

A common method of evasion was
for the young man, if under age, to
put a slip of paper, bearing the num

put' in her shoe a slip of paper with

would cheerfully make affidavit that

affidavit that she was "over eighteen."
In a few instances indictments have

Strange Conglomeration of Teachings
of a So-Called Religious Cult In
Which Women Disciples of the
Apostle Became Entangled.
Chicago. Evelyn Arthur See, re
fcaler of tho "absolute life." who was
convicted by a Jury In Judge Honore's
court on a charge of abducting Mil
dred Bridges, one of his girl disciples,
was released on $5,000 bail pending
the hearing of a motion for an appeal.
Tho penalty for tho crlnio which the
head of tho Rnclno avenue "love Jun

from ono to ten years.
Evelyn Arthur See was nrreoted In
his "templo" on Racine avenue Janu

had at ono time been a follower of

the cult In return, It was asserted, for
his financial support. Mrs. Bridges
bIeo was a member of tho cult nnd at
tho trial she took the stand In See's
Whllo tho state was investigating
the tho federal authorities also
took up tho quest to ascertain if there
had been any violation of tho "white

March for separate maintenance. The
Seos had been separated for years.
Following the filing of this suit the
safo in tho "templo" wa3 opened and
tho "revealer'B" book nnd papers, In
cluding tho manuscript of tho "Book
of Truth," were seized.
Some parts of the "Book of Truth"
have been published. Other parts, not
published but taught to the woman
and girl inmates of the love Jungle,
have been seised by tho United States
government and form the basis of a
prosecution against See In tho federal
courts. The federal authorities say

apartments on Raclno avenue, and
Mrs. Rees and Mrs. Bridges took tho
stand and accepted responsibility for
tome of the declarations In the "Book
of Truth."
During tho trial, which dragged
along through several weeks and cost
the state $10,000, a strange conglom
