The auit of Lena M. LJilie against the
Modern Woodmen on the Insurance policy
for tl.ooof heV murdered husband, Harvey

deposition. Although the suit I to be prac
tically a Rial of the question whether Mra.

constantly Interjected Into the case. One
of the deposition on behalf of the plaintiff
here contained a statement concerning the
outcome of the prosecution that offended

to the Jury Attorney Burr was put in the
embarrassing position of having to object
to testimony offered by himself and to
mov that the' objectionable testimony be
