1 WESTMINSTER, Md., June 6.
i The story of a romance that started
in a. cemetery, -wtoere the two princi
:pals had gone to decorate separate
j graves, was unfolded here yesterday
1 at the trial of Mrs. Alice Kiser, -who
is charged with the murder of her
husband, J. Frank Kiser, a fanner
of Harney, near here.
Jealousy over attentions paid by
Kiser to Mrs. Ida Reever, the wo
man in the graveyard romance, is
said to have been the cause of the
fatal shooting. Mrs. Reever, only
four years younger than the woman
on trial, sat through the proceedings
yesterday. . displaying unusual in
terest in the case.
The shooting occurred following
a walk taken by Kiser and Mrs.
Reever. Harrv Mort, a small boy
who lives in the village, testified
that on the day of the shooting he
had seen Kiser come out of the
house, wave a hitching strap in the
air, and then walk down the road.
Soon afterward Mrs. Reever, who
lived opposite, left her house and
walked in the direction Kiser had
Waited For Husband.
It wa3 brought out that Mrs. Kiser
waited for her husband to come home,
and that as he entered the House after
a trip to the stable she went to the
summer kitchen, secured a shotgun
and fired into the darkness. The shot
took effect in her husband's head, re
sulting fatally about twenty-six
hours later. After the shooting Mrs.
Kiser assisted her husband to a couch
in the living room, took off his shoes,
and otherwise made him as comfort
able as pssiblc before calling the
neighbors. Next morning, entirely
unconcerned, she went about her
household duties as usual, cooking
for the farmhands and doing the

in the cemetery, to which Kiser had
gone to place flowers on the grave
of his firat wife. Mrs. Reever was
similarly decorating a grave and they
fell into conversation and left the
place together. Dr. Benner said that
Kiser had told him that as they talk
ed it had seemed as if heads were
popping up from behind every tomb
stone watching them and that before
Kiser reached home some one had in
formed Mrs. Kiser of the incident by
He related that on another occasion
when Mrs. Kiser came to him for
treatment, she had laid bare to him
the sorrow of her life and had con
fided that, acting on the advice ofa
neighbor who had told her that 'if
she were to turn the horse loose it
would go straight to the trysting
place of her husband and Mrs. Reever,
she had followed the animal to a
schoolhouse, where she found them
On another occasion, Dr. Benner
said Mrs. Kiser placed in his care
three Liberty bonds, saying she fear
ed her husband would disinherit his
soldier son and turn over his prop
erty to Mrs. Reever. She said she
suspected him of bestowing large
sums for flnepy upon Mrs. Reever.
Later on, according to the same wit
ness. Kiser consented to cease his at
tentions to the woman after he had
been told that his conduct was having
a deleterious effect upon his wife's
already serious condition.
Had Many fitment.
Dr. 'Benner testified that he had
treated Mrs. Kiserd for hardening of
the arteries, gall stones, and cancer
of the liver. He testified on cross
examination that she frequently suf
fered lapses of memory, and was sub
ject to crying spells. He also testified
that he had taken her to Frederick
upon one occasion for an operation,
but that Dr. Thomas Johnson, a sur
geon, who also corroborated this
statement, refused to operate on ac
count of her condition.
He said that her peculiar mental
condition was noticed when she first
heard of her husband's alleged atten
tions to the Reever woman. He testi
fied that her mental condition was so
bad at times that she could not count
eggs when she went to the markets in
Baltimore with her farm products.
He also testified as to the story of
the first shooting affair, when Mr.
Kiser shot her husband with a pistol,
the bullet from which glanced off a
collar button. This was the time the
witness testified that she became de
ranged because of an accusation made
against-her by her husband.
There was no great surprise ex
pressed when the .counsel for the de
fense, Attorneys U. O. Weant and
Francis Neale Parke, announced that
they would offer a plea of insanity in
stead of the unwritten law.- The
probable defense had been the gossip
of Westminster, as it was known that
the woman had been .suffering with
chronic organic diseases that would
bring on insanity. The State had
very little to offer, except the routine
testimony of the doctors who attended
the dying husband and the neighbors
who went in after tho shooting. Threw
neighbors Mrs. Martin Valentine,
Billy Mort and John Snyder testified
that they found the man wounded on
the floor and that Mrs. Kiser had told
them of her husband's alleged inti
macy with the Reever woman.
G. Hill, of Mt. Hope Asylum, testi
fied for the State that, in his opinion,
the woman's mental condition was
sound at the time of the shooting.
Dr. Adolf Meyer, of Johns Hopkins
Hospital,' testified that he had made
an exhaustive study of the woman's
case, and was of the opinion that tho
stories she had heard 61 her husband's
intimacy with the other "woman
would have caused insanity, owing to
the various serious physical disorders
that she suffered. He was of the
opinion that aire is not at present in
sane, but that she could easily be
made so by any undue excitement.
Dr. Purdum. of Springfield Sanator
ium, and Dr. John Oliver testified
in accord with Dr. Meyer.
There was no eyewitness to the
shooting, although tho neighbors ar
rived shortly after it happened. Oth
er witnesses testified that the wom
an had brooded much over her hus
band's attentions to Mrs. Reever and
had frequently told them of seeing
her husband riding with her. One wit
ness testified that she tried to break
off the affair by going to a local
Mrs. Reever is not a 'witness for
cither side and her presence and the
frequent mention of her name with
that of the dead man caused not a
few heads to turn in her direction
now and then. She is of the average
type of country woman, rather well
preserved Tor her age. A yellow
silk shirtwaist enlivened her dress.
State's Attorney Seabrook, who is
prosecuting the case, stated today
that he has no more witnesses to
put on the stand. The case will be
argued today, and is expected to go
to the jury before night.

who has just returned from France,

The woman hangs her head most of

WOMAN AN ACCIDENT,
IS ECONOMIST'S VIEW
PITTSBURGH, Pa., June . Why
are women workers paid less than
the men and treated worse?
Dr. G. H. Barnes, chief of the school
of economics of the Carnegie Insti
tute of Technology, answered the
question in an. address here.
"Woman Is simply an accident, eco
nomically speaking, in the industrial
world," he said. "Honestly, women
are less desirable workers in indus
try than men, not because of any in
efficiency, but from their very nature.
'"Women are continually marrying
out of Industry. They are strangers,
stopping awhile and going out Into
homes to rear families. The turnover
cost to employers as a result of this
constant change is enormous. This
turnover cost a steel firm one year
?400 in each case. The shifting pop
ulation makes a turnover cost of SO
per cent among women employes and
make fon a lower wage for equal
