ting facts when the district attorney
pitilessly read extracts of the love let
ters written to her by Arthur It. Pen
nell. Not since the inquest into the

met Pennell at a card party five or
6ix years .ago, at which Burdick was
present. She went to New Haven and
New York with the Pennells In 1898.
Burdick did not go, being detained by
business. No unusual friendship
sprang up between her and Pennell.
Witness did not recall a letter from
Pennell written in New Haven In 1900,
Jn which he said "Yesterday I was at
the gateway on the campus grounds
where more than two years ago I drew
you in, in the darkness. Tills place is
enshrined to me."

"Yes," whispered Mrs. Burdick.
"And you recall the incident now?"
Mrs. Burdick in recalling the inci
dent confessed that Pennell went into
a doorway, drew her in, took her in
his arms and kissed her. She thought
she remonstrated. She did not re
member that Pennell was at the
Shelter island in September, 1900, nor
a letter from him in which he wrote
that he had found her gloves In the
pocket of his Tuxedo. The letter was
handed her. She read It hastily and
did not appear to enjoy its contents.
It was written by Pennell, she said,
but she did noz remember having seen
Mrs. Burdick was questioned at some
length. rejative to the meaning of "1.
2, 3," refemMl to in a letter from
Pennell. in which he said: "I will
meet you at 1, 2. 3, Wednesday morn
ing," but Mrs. Burdick answered that
she did not know. There were two or
three houses, she said, at which she
used to meet him. Coatsworth pro
duced another letter postmarked New
Haven, Sept. 19, 1900. Mrs. Burdick
said she recalled receiving it. Fen
nell wrote: "I shall try and comfort
myself -by telephoning you from New
York, and on Thursday shall know the
exquisite happiness of seeing you."
He referred to her "dear picture in
the locket" and declared her "my love,
my life, my dearest own." Coatsworth
produced another letter written from
New York Sept. 18. 1900, addressed
to Mrs. Burdick. In this letter 'he
wrote: "I jjst came from telephon
ing you and hearing your dear tsweet
voice. Am T foolish to telephone you
from way down here? It was worth
all it cost me. I realize more and
more that you are the only woman In
the world for me."
"Do you remember getting that let

Mrs. Burdick?" T don't know."
"What doss he mean by the 'para

Coatsworth showed the witness an
other letter written from New York
by Pennell, and addressed to Mrs. Bur
flick. She sa.d It was his handwrit

see if It will refresh your recollection:
As I looked into your beautiful eyes

Mrs. Burdick said she did not know
whether her husband was aware of
the fact that she was receiving letters
from Pennell. Her habit had been to
keep her letters locked in a box. Her
husband first knew of her intimacy
with Pennell, she thought, on Jan. 1,
1901, when she told him in reply to a
question that she had been walking
with Pennell. He told her she was
very Imprudent. She agreed with him
then, and did now.

Root yesterday took official action on
the charges made by Estes (I. Itath
bone against Brigadier General Leon

ou the papers saying that nq answer
to the charges was required from (Itn
eral Wood, and no action will be taken
thereou; that it was known, to the
secretary of war that the charges in
every respect were without just foun
dation. Says Root Was Upheld.
The secretary refers to the part
taken by the military governor 1n the
postofDce cases, in which ltnthbone
was a defendant, saying that General
Wood at evry step had the approval
of the secretary of war and exercised
only such -control as was necessary as
military governor. He refers to the

man. Lincoln, Neb.. March 24. William
J. Bryan closed his services as a Juror
on his 43d birthday anniversary. Dur
ing last week he served on four cases,
nil of them trivial except one, wliere
suit was brought against an insurance
company on a life policy.
As the case developed it was shown
to be a question of law and not of fact
and the court took the matter out of
the hands of the jury, directing a ver
dict for the defendant and directing
-Bryan, as. foreman, to sign the verdict.
Brj-an demurred, saying that the
jury should select its own foreman.
Judge Frost responded that he usually
took the liberty to name the foreman
in such cases. Bryan accepted the
place with, a smile.

whom she expected to marry. He had
a wife, ' but he expected that they
would be divorced. In reply to a ques
tion as to whether Mrs. Pennell had
consented to a divorceshe said: "Some
times she did not."
Witness admitted, however, that she
had never talked with Mrs. Pennell
on the subject. Her husband sent her
away in May, 1901. on account of
Pennell. Coatsworth showed her a let
ter written" by her from Atlantic City.
May 27, 1901. in which she begged
to le taken Irack. promising never to
see "Arthur," and that she would be
a loving and true wife. She admitted
writing the letter. A second letter
written by Mrs. Burdick to her hus
band, the same year, was read In
which she spoke of bavins received
Burdick's letter, ami said that Ten
nell had not promised to leave town
if Burdick took her back; that she
and Pennell declined to do anything
that would mean a loss of his self
respect. Another letter written by Mrs. Bur
dick to her husband referred to her
being taken back homo. She prom
ised never again to voluntarily see or
communicate with "Arthur." She
made a plea on behalf of the chil
dren. She promised to be a "good
girl" to him. Mrs. Burdick admitted
she wrote th:? letter and said it was
in good faith, but that she did not
keep her promise. On one occasion
Burdick wrote her that she could not
be trusted. He said that if she loved
Pennell as she said she did he did not
blame her for what she did: that if
he love a foman as she did rcnncll
he would do ns she was doing.
He referred to the fact that Mrs.
Burdick was wen ring a ring given to
her by Pennell over her lawful wed
ding ring. Ia another letter Burdick
wrote that lit' forgave his wife the
wrong she had done him. In another
Burdick declared he bad determined
to fight for the little honor she had
left him, and after getting a divorce
to fight for the children. He would
insist on the counter-suit by Mrs. Bur
dick being fought out In open court.
Three weeks after this letter Mrs. Bur
dick was taken back by her husband.
After returning from Atlantic City
and after promising her husband to be
a good wife she met Pennell. It was
not her- habit to meet him, she said,
but ho was constantly begging her
to do so, and she did meet him in a
house on Seventh 6treet. She was
there one time when Burdick came.

London, March. 24. The home of
fice officially announces that Mrs.
Florence Maybrick, who in 1SS9 was
convicted of poisoning her husband,
James Maybrick, will be released in
1904. Mrs. Maybrick's Washington
lawyers are authorized to use the facts
of her release for securing the post
ponement of the trial of a number of
lawsuits in which she is interested
over certain land rights in Kentucky,
Virginia and West Virginia, until she
can personally testify.
Mrs. Maybrick was sentenced to
death originally for the murder by
poison of her husband. Her sentence
was commuted to life imprisonment,
ami' ever since the verdict was ren
dered have efforts been made to have
it reversed. The testimony was cir
cumstantial.' but a liaison with an
other man was part of the accusation.
Home secretaries of both Liberal and
Conservative parties in England have
been appealed to for her release, but
none of them could see that she should
be released. Queen Victoria Is also
said to have been against a pardon.

Police of Fond du Lac
Fond du Lae, Wis., March 24. Two
Cubans registered at a local hotel
Sunday as L. Alvarez arid B. Rodri
guez, and announced that they had
come from Cuba to find General E. S.
Bragg, who was formerly consul gen
eral at Havana and who was removed
and sent to Hong Kong because of a
remark that it was like trying to make
a whistle out of a pig's tail to civilize
the Cubans. Tiiey did not appear to
be bent on a peaceful motive, and the
police officials were notified.
It appears to have escaped the no
tice of the Cubans that General I'ragg
had already departed for the Orient,
and was no longer to be found in Fond
du Lac. It was lelieve by the friends
of General Bragg that the Cubans had
come to Fond du lae to kill General
Bragg because of his strictures on their
race. The police gave them notice to
move on, which they did.
