on the track near Island Park. Just as the

out of It. Ho was picked up conscious and
taken Into the car. Ho lay for about five
minutes in the baggage car , moaning with

The supervising ' nrchltoet of the now
Broadway Mothodlst dhurch has made n
alight change in the original plans which will
add about W.OOO to the cost of the edifice and
improve Its appearance- very much. The
change was necessitated by a belief that the
walls were ncttllilR owing to insufficient
foundation on the north side and under the
main tower. The north wall has settled
about a quarter of au Inch since the heavy
roof was put on , and this tdllghi settling
has caused a small crack near the
center. For the purpose of strengthen
Ing the walls and arresting any fur

concrete. Upon this additional foundation

MEMI-IIIS , Tenn. , .luno lit. The entire time
of the criminal court today was devoted to
cross-examining the central llpuro in the
Postoti killing H. Clay King. Aa ' .ho par
ticulars of the famous Idlllntr are brought
forth publie interest increases nnd the oourt
room was crowded to suftocation.
Attorney General Peters asked the witness
why'ho made his will In favor of Mrs. Pillow.
Colonel King replied that the reason was
because Mrs. Pillow was tbo same kind of a
friend to him that Anes ? was to David Cop-
pcrlield. There had been no Improper re
lations between himself and Mrs. Pillow.
Ho had supported Mrs. Pillow and family
from 1883 , when she moved to his plantation.
Asked why ho had made his will In favor
of Mrs. Pillow , thus cutting off his family ,
he replied : . ' 'I did not cut oft my fnmlly. I
had already provided for thorn. The reason
was that Mrs. Pillow \vas to rue what Agnes
was to David Copperfleld. David Joyed his
wife , but there was no congeniality between
them , and Agnes promised to bo a companion
an honorable companion to htm. Mrs.
Pillow was my Agnes. Mrs. Pillow swore
that there was a money consideration for
that deed ; that , she had loaned mo $1,000 of
insurance and other moneys. She swore
that in the bill after Dave Poston got Into the
case , but she chanced her base , as she
did not claim that before. I destroyed that
deed. The last will was executed afterward.
At that time Mrs. Pillow and I wore farm
ing together. We ute our meals vis-u-vls. My
family was then in Memphis. I made a later
deed to Agnes for a moneyed consideration
of $10.000. The deed was made to support the
will she had in case it was broken.
" 1 later told Mrs. Pillow I would make her
n deed of gift , which s ho could record after
mv death. Tills deed she said she lost , and
still later J , made another , settling for the
available consideration to the Arkansas plan
tation , and both these deeds were recorded
In Arkansas "and Tennessee. 1 made
tbo deedsto support tna win oecauso a
will * can bo contested after the death of
the mukor. I had asked my wife bcfora that
to consent to a divorce. As early at 18IKJ wo
had n consultation aoout our affairs with bur
parents with a vmw to a .separation. Wo
bad disagreements , but we did not separate.
Slnco 1883 , when Mrs. Pillow wont away , my
wife and I have lived us a unit , happily
"la 18S8 Mrs. Pillow loft mo forever to cote
to Birmingham. She went first to Marianna ,
Ark. , and put on record the deed and tneu
recorded the deed hero. As soon as I found
this out I told my wlto I must go over to the
plantation till the thing blew over. 1 told
mv wife that If she demanded that I should
go't a divorce and marry Mrs. Pillow I should
do so. Mrs. Pillow and I agreed to sennrato
fo life , but she camobnck , I felt humiliated
nnd loft the city. 1 mot Mrs. Pillow fre
quently after that. She came down to see mo
nt the plantation. In July , 18S8 , after wo hud
separated'for life , she came to mo ut Chicago ,
I don't ' know that ; I bad an engagement with
her , but she told mo she was coming. Shu
wonted mo to go to Wisconsin nnd got a di
vorce , but I refused. She had a deed to my
pro | > ortv and wanted me to plvo her monoy.
I ofTereil her $ r ,0 < X ) to save the scandal and
then I offered her half of the Arkansas plant-
ntion. 1 consulted u lawyer about a divorce
because Mrs. Pillow poked mo to. I wonted
to test her. I wanted to see If her purpose
was to rob me , or really wanted to marry me.
If 1 could got n divorce. Ono day at tno hotel
n paper was brought to mo addressed to Mrs.
[ Mllow. It was n matrimonial paper and I
opened It. In It I found this ad :
" I * n-VJ widow , -10 yours old , 100 pounds
literal Uatliollc. ft feet 7 inehoH hlitti , beautiful
irunette , owning a lioiibe and other property.
Accustomed to Ko.ulety of national repute.
Will many none but a gentleman of meaim
and culture , uconstomed to good soelety. "
"In was 'on finding that 'ad ' , ' exactly fitted
tire. Pillow nnu fearing that she was' claim-
tier my property that I at once took stops to
vcovor It , and the llrst bill was filed by me.
ttrs. Pillow went at .onco and took violent
losbcsjlon of iho property. "
As to the charge In the cross bill Which the
lofendant made the basis for his demand for
a retraction , the witness maintained that the
attorney was responsible for It , as the matter
vas Irrelevant. Ho Insisted on construing
ho charge us u reflection on his wlfo rattier
hnn on himself , his construction being that
t accused his wlfp of Intimnoy with a negro.
The witness was released until Mou lay.
