more typical and significant aspects of life
In the great city, and of those who con
stitute its real and not Its exceptional

abound In a great city, and fuller still of
earnest thought and sincere endeavor to

In which men and . women who try to help
tberr fellows are apt to find themselves
helplessly groping. No ready-made solu

presented by the action of the story, but
the suggestions made by the variedly
prejudiced personages of the drama will
be helpful to those who sincerely seek a
way out. There Is a sweet and wholesome
love story, of course. Indeed, there are
two of them, and altogether the novel Is
one of peculiarly fascinating Interest. In
appearance It is one of the handsomest

GIVE EVIDENCE OF BURNING PASSION
Wtara Wha Attend Divorce Trial
Art warded for the Cariosity
hy Pmto Morsels
The large crowd of regularly attending
women at the Bassett divorce trial Tues
day morning found some delicious morsels
for their delectation in the reading of cor
am letters written by Mrs. Bsssett to her
husband while the latter was away from
home engaged In geological survey fUld
The attorneys fcr Mr. Basset found In
the letters a refutation of Mrs. Basse't's
testimony that she never really loved her
husband and that even from the time of
the honeymoon she ceased to respect him.
The letters were written about four yeirs
after the couple wero married and are in
the most passionately affectionate terms. I
"If you were here tonight," says one. "I
would kiss you, hug you, dsnce for you and
tell you you are the dearest husband in all
the world." "I do worship you," says an
other. Much time was spent during the morning
introducing letters and other documents.
The defense has now 115 exhibits on file,
ruoet of these being letters written by Mrs.
Bassett to her husband. The defense in
troduced also a number of papers bearing
the signature of Mrs. Bsssett and Rev.
Dr. Hunt. These papers were orders to
have mail forwarded to Mrs. Bassett's ad
dress after she had left her husband and
ha was not cognizant of her address.
Polat to Extravae-oace.
Some points were brought out which In
dicated extravagance on the part of Mrs
Bassett. Though her hushand was send
ing 1126 a month of his salary, she had to
borrow at times, and one letter showed
that she had borrowed from Ben Fairchild,
the man who, she testified, she always re
garded as her enemy.
The attorneys made a spirited fight on
the admission of evidence regarding the
time of .Mrs. Bassett s confinement In
Johns Hopkins hospital In Baltimore, when
her youngest child, Lawrence, was born.
"I am aware that counsel would like to
avoid questions on this subject." exclaimed
Mr. Stout, "but we want to show who it
was that attended to her and got doctors
when she was In that hospital at that
"We throw down "the gauntlet to Mr.
Stout." said Mr. Baxter. "We stand ready
to meet this issue, but Its proper' place Is
In the case of tbe defense snd not In cross
examination." The court took this view of It. Certain
questions, however, were admitted. Mrs.
Bassett answered that she did not know
whether her husband knew or not of the
anticipated birth of Lawrence, who was
born on March 12, 1906. She said she had j
never notified him of the child's birth. i
The court also sustained the objection of i
Mrs. Bassett's attorneys to Mr. Stout's :
question regarding who supported her
during this period, she having left her
husband a number of months previous.
Preacher Still Preseat.
Rev. E. Lawrence Hunt was In his place,
as he has been during every moment of the
trial. Neither Benjamin Fslrchild nor Mr.
Bassett were In the court rcom in the morn
ing. . It is now apparent tbe case will not be
half finished by the end of the Week. Three
very important witnesses are yet . to be
called after Mrs. Bassett and she prob
ably will remain on the stand all of Wed
nesday. Tbe cxet of the trial Is amounting up to
high figures. A man in a position to esti
mate such costs said the litigation at the
Omaha end of the affair including an ex
penses of witnesses, etc., will come near
the SS.000 mark. Leading attorneys are en
gaged on the case, witnesses whose time Is
worth considerable money are here from
distant points. The trial is proceeding with
a thoroughness that takes no cognisance
of time. The record Is being kept by two
stenographers, who work nearly all night
In getting up a complete transcript of one
day's evidence for use for the following
day. And all this is only preliminary to
determining whether or not the Omaha
court haa any jurisdiction In the matter
Mrs. Baaaett Slcna for Relief.
The searching cross-examination of Mrs.
Bassett by her husband's attorney, John
F. Stout, was completed yesterday after
noon. The cross-examination had con
tinued more than three days, much time
being lost by the peculiar perchant of the
witness for "wandering off the family hlt-tory."-
as Mr. Stout expressed It. When
the ordeal was ended Mrs. Bassett sank
back In her chair and murmured, "It is
Mr. Stout devoted the final two hours of
his cross-examination to bringing up a few
miscellaneous matters, most of which were
ruled oJt by the court on the objection of
Mrs. Bossett's attorneys. Among ques
tions so ruled out were these:
"Did not you and Dr. Hunt take a sleeper
at Phlladeuphla for St. Louis In the fall
"Didn't Dr. Hunt have a secret signal to
let you know he was at the door of your
apartment house In Washington r
"Haa Dr. Hunt contributed to your sup
port since May 11. 1904. when you deter
mined you would leave your husband?"
When asked why she did not stop In Den
ver where his sister lived If she wanted to
get a divorce. Mrs. Bassett said she vanted
to be In a city where her husband would
not discover her. 8 he denied that on the
occasion when she tried to commit suicide
with an overdose of digitalis she alsa tried
to shoot herself.
What Ahoet That Love.
On tbe re-direct examination Mrs. Bas
sett's attorneys brought up again the ques
tion as to whether she loved her husband
when she married him. Mr. Stout Inter
posed tha most vigorous objections to this
and protested against allowing her to ex
plain the denial of love for Bassett which
he had given Mr. Stout. Upn the Strength
of this denial the defense had introduced
more than 100 letters from her to Bassett
expressing the gresteet affection. The
court, however, permitted her to answer
and aha did so by statlr.g that she had
been a little "mad" at Mr. Blout when he
question was asked and tnen she explained
away her denial of love.
. The defense also tried to introduce the
letter of Rr. Hunt to Mrs. Stone In which
he says, "I am going to give love tbe right-of-way
and when she I free I'm going to
ask her to become my wife." The objec
tions of Mrs. Bassett's attorneys to this
letter were sustained.
"It Is wonderful thq wsy she has borne
up." he said. "She bad been assured that
her husband would aot get a verdict In
Washington. Then rame the announce
ment of his victory and on the same day
the trial began here and she was forced to
go upon the stand. he has a gentle, sweet,
senaative nature and aha bore the brunt
of this beautifully."
The number of women In the audience
Increased materially yesterday afternoon.
A strict watch was kept that none should
remain In the court room who could be
legally excluded. Bailiff Marrow detected
one girl of IS years and she was ordered
, from the room. ,
MEN LEAD BOYS INTO EVIL
Charge that Will Be Tlawrwwniy
fi saw sites' ay Pmtrwas of
Alexander Berk.. who Is only It years of
age and who was arrested Saturday morn
ing In company with Harry DanleJsoa oa
the charge of stealing lead from a freight
car, was released from the city jail Tuesday
morning under parole to Rev. R. B. IL
Bell, rector of the Church of the Good
Shepherd. Twentieth and Ohio streets.
The boy's mother la dead and he has been
living with his father snd a sister at mt
North Sixteenth street. His father Is ssld
to have expressed a desire to have nothing
more to do with the boy.
Toung Beck was taken Tuesday morning
by Rev. Mr. Rcll to the Detention home,
where he will remain until his case In tried
February 27. in the meantime a complaint
has been sworn out agalnpt Louis Rubsck,
a Junk dealer on North Seventeenth street,
on the charge of receiving stolen property.
Rev. Mr. Bell and others have taken a
deep Interest In the case and Intend to
prosecute Ruback vigorously, as he Is
charged with having Induced the boys to
commit thefts and sell the goods stolen to
him. In speaking of the affair of young
Beck Tuesday morning. Dr. Bell said:
"The boy Is not to blame and I believe
the trouble between him and his father
will be adjusted. The trouble lies with men
that Induce young boys to commit crimes
for profit to themselves, and the present
case Is going to be pushed to the limit.
Beck Is not a bad boy at heart, but I am
afraid he will have to go to the reform
school, as he was paroled to me once be
fore, and broke his promise when he stole
the lead last Friday. But he says the Junk
dealer persuaded him to steal and he did
It to get money with which to play pool.
"That is another matter that. Is being
given attention, the licensing and super
vision of pool halls. These pool halls where
minors congregate are one of the most
subtle and worst Influences for vloe. I
have seen Councilman Bedford and others
and will try to have an ordinance passed
licensing pool tables and providing for the
revocation of the licenses In case the halls
become dens of vice and likely to lead the
youth of our city astray."
IOWA RATES JjT ONCE MORE
Proportionals Are Reewaaldereel,
Whereas Owiahaas Thosjcht the
Matter Was Settled.
A conference was called for Tuesday In
Chicago of the western lines again to
consider the application for proportional
rates on Iowa business. Local men thought
this matter was settled when all the
roads agreed to stand by Omaha and let
the proportional rates apply through tbe
Omaha gateway. This has been quite a
bone of contention for some time. It was
thought when It was decided to raise grain
rates 14 cents east through Iowa the Iowa
lines would be satisfied and nothing fur
ther would be heard of the matter.
NO 4 IS A CHARMINO LITTLE EMPIRE
The modes for grownups are often most
quaint and fetching when adapted to the
apparel of the little people and a very
attractive example Is shown In the small
empire coat. The skirt portion is circular,
fitting the waist exactly and rippling pret
tily at the hem. The deep collar Is a very
becoming feature, giving the long-shoul
dered effect and offering an opportunity
for trimming. The model la of broadcloth,
with collar, cuffs and buttons of velvet,
but a serge, cheviot or pongee might serve.
The sleeves may be full length or shorter
and are exceedingly well shaped. The front
of the coat Is double-breasted and the
shield may be worn only when desired. The
design Is a bit different from the ready-
to-wear styles and therefore will appeal
to the particular woman. The medium sum
requires 2 yards of 54-Uich material.

Will the validity of the John A. Crelghton
will be attacked?
That la already a subject of widespread
discussion. The relatives of Mr. Crelghton,
even Including some who have been re
membered In the will, do not hesitate to
express their dissatisfaction of Its terms.
They ssy that a larger proportion of the
Crelghton fortune should have gone to
members of his family and a smaller pro
portion to charity and educational institu

Count Crelghton hss no lineal descendants

than nephews and nieces. No one can
attack the genuineness of the will or the
sanity of Mr. Crelghton when he made It.
the only possibility being to allege undue
Influence on the part of the priests and
nuns representing- the Institutions that are
to get the bulk of the money.
Waste! Aaother Will.
"Count Crelghton maae. nut will three
years ago. It Is too bad that he did not
make another wiU within the last six or
eight months, because his fortune hss prac
tically doubled aince he mnde the will.
The sale of his mine alone brought him a
profit of tJ.WO.000 and he ha had other
Increments since then In excess of what
he has given away. The result is that
the undivided residuum that Is to go to
the designated heirs In the same propor
tion Is several times what he thought he
was giving at the time, and had he known
that he was to dispose of that much prop
erty he would unquestionably have changed
"Another unfortunate thing is that he
should have regarded tha heirs of his
brothsr and sister" aa having equal claims,
one family having seven children and the
other three and each family dividing the

between one set of nieces and nephews too

to the general public and especially to tne
poor and afflicted, and In leaving the bulk
of his wealth to them he was simply tak
ing what he thought the best way to make
sure of doing the most good to the public
generally. The failure of the will to specify
anything about the principal pieces of
property belonging to the count, such for
example as bis home. Is due to the fact that
u hta real estate was transferred to tne
John A. Crelghton Real Estate company
and what will pass to the estate will be
merely his holdings in tbe form ol sioen in
this company. The company will manage
the property and the home, I presume, wui

if wanted for occurjancy. For the present
It will probably continue at the disposition
of those who have been living there with

Count Crelghton's will did not reveal the

speculation as to the value of the estate.
