John S. Paul took the stand yeaterday
afternoon In the divorce auit which ha In-
Itiated against his wife. Nellie FauL He
,did not get Into the Important part of hla
1 charge against ber, though he narrated
i one or two thing".
! Paul declared that hla wife told htm that
j she considered E. J. Bodwell rather 'a
sport.' and on her repeating this he asked
her how she knew, and she answered:
"I can tell It by hla actions."
The plaintiff waa examined at length
about hla relatione with his atepson. Clar
ence, and he told of paying the boy's tu
ition at a school at Columbus, of warning
him not to misbehave, of being advised to
whip him by Mrs. Paul, and of his finally
not doing so.
Paul will resume the stand this morning.
The plaintiffs case will end today and the
hearing will then adjourn over Sunday.

Mrs. Ernest Thomas held her baby In her
arms while testifying, and the Innocence
of the Infant was In striking contrast to
the atmosphere of charge and counter
charge made In the trial, and to the signifi

"Mrs. Paul said to me," declared the wit
ness, "that she would have a nice large
house where aha was going to move to,
'and 'If you got a fellow or can get one,
bring him up and we'll have a good time.' "
The witness, on cross-examination proved
rather a Tartar for General Cowln. who
waa quinlng Mrs. Thomas In Mrs. Paul's
On direct examination the witness had
stated that "Mr. Paul waa the most de
voted father I ever saw." So the defense
started out to make an equally good show
ing for Mrs. Paul.
"Waa not Mrs. Paul a kind and affec
tionate mother to her children
"She waa kind to them." aald the witness.
The attorney wished to emphasise the
"Mrs. Paul loved and cared for them
with all her heart, did she not?"
"Well." replied Mrs. Thomaa, "her love
for them was not really deep-hearted."
Combats between Mrs. Paul's counsel
and the witnesses on the other side were
the principal events of the morning sua
sion, although the excluding of two youths
from the court room by a bailiff was note
worthy. Fresh me a Fired trass Haaaa.
"You are pretty young to be In here,"
said the officer of the court.
"We are 21 years old and freshmen at
college," answered the boys.
"Well, you don't look It," said the bailiff.
"Vamoose! Thia la no place for boys."
Cross-examination of Mrs. Ida Cole
brought out the fact that ber first hus
band deserted her some yeara ago.
"He went away with a woman like this
one," said Mrs. Cole.
"Ah," said General Cowln, earcastically,

Stronger term than Ul).
'Why." asked the ' attorney.- "do -you
make this slur on her"
A. W. Jefferts jumped up with an ob
jection and Judge Troup suggested that
General Cowln ask, -Why do you make
this statement V
General Cowln preferred to stand on his
original question and take an exception.
Then he fired a series of question at
"Didn't you say to Mrs. Paul that If you
were she. you would not live with this
"I did not."
"Didn't you say that Paul was ruining
"I did noL"

"Didn't you say to her that be must
certainly have some woman affair or he
would be home evenings V
"No," replied Mrs. Thomaa. "She said
that to me."
The answer waa objected to and stricken.
Christina Gordon waa the laat witness.
She Is a young Scotch girl and a niece
of FauL She told of walking with Mrs.
Paul one afternoon to the farm of Ed H.
Walker. The two little girls were along.
"When we came to drfve home," said
the witness, "Mrs. Paul got In the front
seat with Walker and one of the girls
wanted to sit with her mother and made
a big fusa because tbey would not take
her. She sat In the back with me until
we got near Florence, when the rig was
stopped and Mrs. Paul took the child and
put ber between Walker and herself."
"You drove Into Florence that way?
asked Mr. Jefferts.
"We did." ssseverated the witness.
Mltfa Gordon told of leaving the Paul
parlor one day when some whisky had
"Mrs. Paul made some toasts and I got
up and left."
"Why did you leaver
"Because the toasts were so vulgar."
The plaintiff will take at least a day and
one-half more to finish Its side, so the case
will be a protracted one.
Mrs. William Compton. wife of a poor
tinker and herself a washerwoman, stands
an excellent chance of receiving a big slice
of a wealthy English estate valued at
400,000 pounds sterling.
The Comptons live In the rear of Kw
Pouth Twenty-second street and have been
In reduced circumstances for some time.
They knew rather vaguely that there had
been a rich uncle In England and that he
had died. But they did not know whether
he had left them anything, or how to go
about finding out.
Finally Compton went to M. I Sugar
man, an attorney, and arked htm to look
Into the matter.
It develops that there Is complete proof
of the rr'atlon. that the uncle did die
intestate and that hla estate has been lying
in chancery for some years, awaiting claim
ants who can prove up.
So much Is certain. The story Is almost
a conventional one In some respects, for
th heirs-to-be are poor, as always In the
story books, and the dead uncle was a re-
tl:ed sa captain, a quite conventional oc
cupation for a long lost uncle leaving a
fortune behind him.
What Is not so conventional Is that there
seems to be an excellent chance to get the
money, or at least a part of It
It Is uncertain whether there will be other
heirs laying claim to a part of the prop
erty, which la In Edington, Warwickshire,
