Plaintiff Denies Charsea
Crona-examlnatlon of John 8. Paul in
his suit for divorce yesterday afternoon
served to give hint that the defense has,
or thinks It has. something Important aa
to how raul got those letters which Mrs.
Jaul wrote to her New York sister.
Paul's memory was poor as to where
he found them, saying he "found them
In the house," but would hot say Junt
where in the residence. Again and again
counsel made him go on record as swear
ing that he had not got them outside
Otherwise the cross-examination was
not sensational or significant of sensa
tions. General Cowln did, however, make
the witness admit continuing to dwell
and cohabit with Mrs. Paul after many
alleged offenses of various kinds. I
The case has now tone Over to Mon
day, when the plaintiff will have three
more witnesses. Another witness of yes-,
terday was Dr. Kills, whose examination
waa brief. He denied an allegation set
up In' Mrs. Paul's answer.
Paul declared on direct examination
that his wife had unjustly accused him
with respect to four Florence women.
Ha named them. Three of them were in
the court room at the tithe Mrs. Paul's
charge waa repeated and one was moved
to tears at the accusation. Only one of
the four women whom Mrs. Paul named
has been a witness against her.
Paul testified that his wife used frightful
language, which be quoted.
The plaintiff's testimony began with cer
tain subjects covered by Mrs. Paul In tbe
letters to her sister, and, In her answer,
Mr. Paul denying that he had ever pro
cured or thought of procuring a physician
for an Improper purpose, that he "always
served his relatives first," and that these
kith and kin had been dependent on him
Then he began a history of his married
life. One of the early episodes was Mrs.
Paul's asking twin, he said, to make a will
leaving all to her. Then came an asser
tion that she proposed to him to sell their
home, move away and establish a house
for 'Improper purposes. '
Next he told of various Incidents with re
gard to her behavior toward him.
"One day I came home for luncheon,"
said he. "and waa at table With the chil
dren when leanette she Is the youngest
said to me:
" 'Papa, you're a fool. -
'What's thatr I asked.
" 'Mamma says "you're a old fool." '
"When a newspaper came Into the yard
containing the news of Paul's filing for di
vorce In July of this year, Mrs. Paul picked
up the paper," said her husband, "and
opening it to' the article about the divorce,
laughed and said: 'Isn't that too funny?'
' 'What's funny, mamma?' asked her
daughter. Mrs. Paul laughed some more
and repeated: 'It's Just too funny for any
When his divorce suit became pending
Paul had business troubles thereby, ac
cording to his Story. He had a capital in
his bank tit f59,Mr and deposits -of fre.OOt.
Some people .heard of his domes tie diffi
culties and withdrew their elooounts. '
At this time Paul said he "couldn't sleep,
couldn't eat, couldn't' work, ' was nervous
and didn't know what 1 was doing."
The witness was nervous enough while
on the stand.
Mrs. Paul leaned forward in her chair
when - her husband 1 repeated the - tirade
which ended with the words, "get out of
