. rartir neiertara, , tt
tile Mitt Uaton resumed the stand for
crosscxamnatlon today in her trial for
tho murder of her )uaband, Rear Ad.
mlral Eaton. As the principal witness In
her own defense, Mrs. Knton was ques
tioned for six hours last Saturday, and
under the guidance of her attorney, Wil
liam Morse, told a story ot tender care
for her husband and consistent devotion
to him. She denied sho had given him
poison and testified that his frequent
dabbling with subtle drugs and liquor
drinking had taxed her patience and
made her fear for her life.'
At the suggestion of the district attor
ney, his medical examiner, Oilman T.
Osgood, of Rockland, sat at a. table In
plain view of the defendant. Dr. Osgood,
who lias devoted much time to a study ot
Insanity, Jottod down notes ot his ob
servations of the witness.
"Did you know that your husband's In
come stopped with his death?" Attorney
Morse asked Mrs. Eaton before her cross
"I did," Mrs. Kuton replied.
Under the questioning ot the prosecu
tor, Mrs. Eaton repeated her story ot
Saturday regarding her early life, her
marriage to he first husband, D. II. Alns
worth, and her separation from him, and
ot her meeting with Admiral Eaton.
The admiral was very intemperate, she
said, but under her care, he drank con
siderably less and finally asked her to
become his wife.
"It was only when I saw that he was
going to kill himself that I decided to
marry him." she said.
"Then you married him to save his
life?" asked Mr. Barker.
"Yet, I married him to save his life,"
replied Mrs. Eaton.
Mrr. Eaton related the story ot her di
vorce from Alnsworth and her marriage
to Admiral Eaton. Soon after their mar
riage the admiral gave her $30,000, all of
which she returned to him later. She
did not know that 130,000 came from tho
first Mrs. Eaton, nor that the admiral
had $40,000 when he married the second
Mrs. Eaton denied that she tried,
