Mr Nici'll to continue his cro*-s-examliia
tir.ii along that line Mr. Mooney, who

Mr. Nicol! asked Mrs. Belmont where
she had first met her husband, and she
promptly replied that It was at the home
of Mrs. Anderson. The plaintiff testified
that BelBMOt 'allowed her MM a month.

her tSXOOe, whereupon fiie agreed to re?
lease him from any claim. She refused
to continue to live on the |MI a month
