Some reflections of this sort kept
flitting through my mind as I sat In
the court room yesterday, pie most
dramatic of the Luk trial.
One has an Uncomfortable sense of
eavesdropping while Grace Lusk is
on the rack, answering questions in
short, broken sentences, in a. voice
that seems to hold all the heartbreak
In the world.
Again and again that deadly and
Insidious phrase cropped out. "He

ness no love on the part of either"
and Grace Lusk's voice quivered for
a. moment and then, with a superhu
man effort, she again took up the
thread of her story.
And yet. In spite of this testimony,
which rang true as gospel,. I have
seen Dr. Roberts weep on the stand
when he mentioned his late wife's
name, the wife whom he neglected
and was unfaithful to. and who, ac.
cording to popular rumor, more than

A married man is a sorry proposi
tion, romantically speaking, and
when the show down comes, he will
surely bide with wife, whose alleged
lack of sympathy was the cause of
the unhapplness In the first place.
Whether she Is sympathetic or un.
sympathetic, the fact that she is his
wife gives her a dignity that every
other woman In the world lacks in
his eyes. She Is the chief of hia royal
highness' appurtenances: and on this
account, respect and consideration
must be shown her.
A majority of men, I am afraid,
are not averse to making a collection
of what we shall continue to call
"ears," but In the final analysis they
are willing, more than willing, to

MISS LUSK TODAY WILL
TELL WHY SHE KILLED
WlFE OF HORSE DOCTOR
WAUKESHA. Wis., May 2. The
most dramatic phase of the testimony
of Miss Grace Lusk, school teacher
on trial here for the murder of Mrs.
Mary Newman Roberts, whose hus
band she laved, probably will be
reached this afternoon, when the de
fendant will relate how her Intense
love for the horse doctor drove her
to the point of madness; how she
urged the veterinarian to tell his wife
of the love tangle; how she then de
cided to see the wife herself and ask
iuer to give up the husband to the
one he really loved, and last, how
I that fatal Interview ended In the
shooting of the wife and the at
tempted suicide of the teacher.

dramatic part of tho teacher's testi

Miss Lusk wavered under the ter
rific ordeal, twice reeling In the wit
nesa chair and nearly fainting. But
she passed through the most dra
matic session in the two weeks' trial
without any other visible evidence.
Description of Illicit relations, guided
by the kindly questions of her attor
ney, James Clancey. followed a pro
logue In which she told of the gradual
birth of love in her spinster soul.
She had corrected many manuscripts
for the literary horse doctor prior to
January, 1913, Including his book on
"Cattle Breeds and Origins."
The court room was crowded long
before the defendant arrived.
She appeared smiling and confident.
Once more she wore a tiny four-
leafed clover at her breast. With her
was her father, her brother, and her
roommate. Myrtle Lull. She did not
hear her name until Attorney Clancey
called her twice. Then she rose,
kissed her, father on the forehead,
and went to the stand.
