j She told of her three matriages, of
her love for Dr. Tetlow and her in

Mrs. Kenyon fold how she held

apartment' for v, a long time. She
'dwelt tenderly on the recital of
hours spent in the garden with her
lover, her head bowed in shame or
lifted in triumph as the narrative
She spoke of the rendezvous in the
doctor's apartment as "cur room."
"Oh, I remember so many things
about that room," she said. "I used
to go' there when I was tired to be
alone. 1 went often when the doctor
was not there.' I would sit for hours,
thinking, reading, mending his
clothes, doing little services for him.
We sometimes lead aloud together.
If we came to a word we did not
know we looked it up in the diction

culture and chaimiifg manner."
"Why did you make up your mind
that you must see him no more?"
she was asked.
"I was .suffering and exhausted,'
she said, nervously and physically,
I was at the breaking point. I could
not go on. I could not stand his
constant complaining and bickering,
hia fault finding' with the chickens,
the garden, the yard, everything
about the place just as though it
were his. Vet X did not want to hurt

Mrs. KenyoA said she visited JJr.

.she called for trowel, the second
time to talk to. him about his call
at her house, the third time with
the gun with which she intended
killing herself and the last time she
described in detail just as she had
put in her direct testimony. Ihe
shooting was accidental, she said.
She never intended killing him. She
loved him too much.
"Yes, I must, 1 will make a good
fight," said Mrs. kenyon. "Not for
myself. What is left of life for me?
