testimony. Later tbe witness and counsel
returned to tbe court room, and Miss Hig
bee or, as sbe claims to be, Mrs. Vaugban
was futher examined by her counsel, Mr.
J. YV. Leggatt. Tbe counsel said:
"There is one tblng tbat I want stopped

"Annie told me so and I could see them.

"You have spoken of the boys calling ber
Mrs Vaugban. Did you understand tbat as

"It was merely a Joke, as I thought, but
I wu not tbe party concerned. "
Miss Fanny Higbee, the sister of tbe
plaintiff, a pretty little girl of some four
teen years, said that sbe was at Mr. Case's
at tbe sociable and saw tbe ceremony per
formed between Walter and ber sister.
"WHAT WAS SAID?"
"Well, Mr. Aresnnsald: 'Will you take
