than playing the role of good old Bt.

to Mra. Tlgha'a little girl and did the
same for hla own.
When Celt met Colt In the reraona of
Mr. Connell and Mra. William II. tiar

vo houra of sharp repartee between the
two. Judge Itedlck and Bailiff Joe Mar

Seeking to enow that Kemp during Inst

the stand Mra. Arthur etever, a neighbor

and gave one to the Tlgha girl and one
to hla own little girl.
"Then all he was dt.lng was-just being
good-hearted Pant a ciaus and going
around to give two little Christmas trees
to two little girls to -make them happy,
: "I object to Mr. Connella dragging

Telser. "Santa Clausi hasn't got anything

When on redirect examination, J.' E,
Kelt, of counsel for Tlghe, asked Mra.
Ktover If Mrs. Tlghe did not receive a
fine, new fur. coat at atout Christmas
time. Mr. Connell objected on the ground
that the plaintiff had not connected
Kemp with the coat or shown thai he
gave it or bought It.
"Maybe Santa Claua gave It to her?"
suggested Mr. Yelser, and again Bailiff
Marrow had to rap for irder.
Mrs. Ktover said Mra. Tlghe got a coat
at the Brand Is storo and she understood
Kemp paid for part ot It. The answer
was stricken out as. hearsay.
Greatest merriment of the morning was
provoked by Mr. Connoll'a cross-examlna-t!on
of Mrs. CJarvan, an aged and rather
deaf Irish woman, proprietor of tho light
housekeeping apartment houae occupied
by the Tighes. (the had testified for the
plaintiff that she witnessed the' quarrel
between the Tighes after the husband had
seen Mrs. Tlghe III Kemp'a office, and
that she peeked through the keyhole ot
Mrs. Tlghe's door and saw her and Kemp
In Improper positions.
Mr. Connell asked If a Mr. Dunnemeyer
did not call on Mrs. Garvan and advise
her to keep out of the Tlglie-Kemp case
and tell her Tlghe was a rascal.
"Tea, he did," cried Mrs. Qarvan, In her
high pitched and belligerent voice, "'and
he told me you was a rascal, too."
Mrs. Qarvan denied that she told
Dunnemeyer and her husband to go to
Kemp and try to get him to pay her 100
to leave town so she could not be got
Into- court to testify against him,
Mr. Consell now directed his efforts
toward ahowlng Mrs. Garvan to be of un
governable temper and of erratic and ec
"Didn't you once assault your husband
with a pistol, a flatlron and a cheese
knife?" he demanded. She denied It.
"Didn't that reeult In divorce proceed
Inge being started by him and didn't you
admit the assault In your answer?" This
she denied and Mr. Connell produced the
answer filed by hsr at the time.
The answer was received In evidence.
la It Mra. Garvan admitted the assaults
aud eald they were Justified by Uarvan'a
actions while she was out of town, hav

Judge Hears aroused Mr. Cunningham

charge that in a former case the Judge

Thomas B. Murray, attorney for Epps,

there were altogether too many delays."
said Judge Pears, referring to the personal
Injury damage suit of Wllllnm, Itosenow
against I.oalft B-tts, "and 1 don't propose
to have a repetition of that."
Cunningham was Betts', attorney and
by Bctts' Illness delayed the trial for
several months. Brtls, still sick, came
Into court and won the case. He since
You drove my client to the grave In
that case, but lie was accepted up above,"
said Cunningham, "but you can't drive
my wife there. I'll get out of this case
"How do you know he was accepted up
above?" asked the judge.
Well, we'll see when we gr .there,"
