INFERNAL ETERNAL TRIANGLE
BRINGS ANOTHER STORY
The curtain will arise again today
on the "eternal triangle" drama that
shocked the guests of the fashion
able guests of the Hotel Sloraine in
Highland Park just one month ago.
The drama involves the love of two
men, Dr. Frederick J. Hobbs and
Jules Raymond, for one woman
Raymond, a wealthy manufactur
er, had been living at the Moraine
with Mrs. Hobbs as "Mr. and Mrs.
Jenkins." The husband found them.
There was a scene followed by the
arrest of Raymond. The case was
continued until Aug. 3.
Today the doctor is to meet his
erring wife in the offices of his at
torney, Thomas L. Stitt, in the Otis
building. Even after what has hap
pened he wants her back. This Is
the way he explains it:
"You see, I've been like a boy look
ing through a knothole in a fence at
a baseball game. Only instead of the
game all that was in my range of
vision was my wife. I never looked
at any one else, never thought of any
one else, and when I married her ten
years ago I swore to myself that I'd
be decent and true and not do any
thing wrong. I've kept that pro
mise to myself.
"Mr. Raymond phoned me and!
uaneu me u x were gyiug w suuoi
him. I'm no Harry K. Thaw. I told
him NO, certainly not I haven't
thought much about him one way or
another. It's my wife I'm concerned
about. He has been going around
with a guard for a month for fear I
would shoot him.
"I want my wife back. I hope when
we meet to be able to take her home
with me. I want her. That's all.
Why, what would her future be if I
didn't take her back? The men who
run away with women seldom stick
to them. When the crash comes
where is the woman to go? Do you
think I want that to happen to MY 1
WIPE? If she comes home I shall
never mention this episode to her.
"When a man puts a bullet through
you the hurt is soon over. But when
he steals your wife it hurts for years.
In fact, it hurts always afterward.
I've tried for two months to school
myself to get over thinking about
her, but it's useless."
Raymond has figured in the news
papers. One year ago he was found
in his home suffering from poison.
His wife was in the psycopathic hos
pital. An investigation of the case
was made and later dropped.
