Stella Grady on Stand in Mc
Kinney Case at
TELLS OF AWFUL CRUELTY
Story Conflicts on Cross Examination
With Some of That Given at
Peoria, 111., June 13. (Special.)
Following the recitation, yesterday of
the horrible practices which Stella Gra
dy was subjected to by Mrs. Mary L.
McKinney, the girl was put to a se
vere cross-examination by Attorney
Cooke this morning and gave evidence
contradictory to that in the trial at
Aledo. Attorneys Cooke and Quinn
are endeavoring to show that Mrs.
McKinney is at a period of life when
she is mentally deranged. Further,
that in the moments of her rage an
uncontrollable passion seized her.
Admit All t hai-Re.
Apparently no effort is being made
o impeach the testimony of the girl as
as the defense has already admitted to
the jury that all of the charges of cru
elty were true. On many points, how
ever, the witness has said differently at
his trial than at the one in Aledo.
Climax of Stale' Kviilenoe.
The atrocities suffered by Stella in
lcr daily life at the McKinney home,
is told by the girl herself, in a long
and terrible recitation yesterday after
toon, marked the climax of the state's
;vidence in the famous Aledo case.
In the midst of a densely packed
;rovd which taxed the efforts of the
lailiffs to keep order, amid a breath
less stillness in which jurors leaned far
jver the rail of the jury box to catch
he faint words of the young girl on
he witness stand, while Mrs. McKin
ney sat a few feet away writhing in
mental suffering, Stella Grady related
the incidentals of her brutal treatment
and the ferocity of the woman who
tad taken her to "teach her gentle
nanners and good housekeeping."
I'int-linl and S-rnt-lied.
"She began by pinching me," the
;irl answered as State's Attorney Gra
lam took her hand. "She pinched my
ace and my arms and scratched me."""
Stella Grady continued.
"Before I had been there a week
Mrs. McKinney began stabbing me in
the back with a long pronged toasting
fork and with embroidery scissors.
With rubber heels she slipped up be
hind me and before I knew what she
ft'as doing she would call me an ugly
name, a fice or a bitch and accuse me
of being lazy, and then strike me in
the back with the fork." the girl pro
ceeded. "Well, was this all she did?"
"Xo, when I had been there a week.
5he suddenly threw, me face down on
.he floor one day. and began stratching
aiy hips and thighs."
Turn Karen Ana'.
As the girl related the revolting de
tails of her suffering and of the cruelty
jf the woman who at such times had
kneeled down over her, the spectators,
disgusted beyond description, turned
iway their faces, and hardened expres
sions settled over the faces of the jur
ors. The cross examination of the de
fense attempted to bring out proof that
Mrs. McKinney never displayed any
inger during these attacks but strong
roof to the contrary developed as
Stella Grady told of the last beating
?he received before she was rescued
ind the beating which called the at
ention of the neighborhood to the out
rages. trahlM'ri the tiirl.
"I had been out in the yard and
:ad been washing." the girl began.
'As I stepped up to the door of the
jcreened porch she grabbed me and
erked me inside.
"'What have you been doing since
o'clock?' she asked me. I told her I
tad been washing and then she beat
ne for half an hour with a stick of
vood from the wood box."
The development of the insane the
Dry began with the cross examination
)f Stella Grady, and the defense laid
a foundation for proof of periodical in
anity, which the state expects to tip
set. RIVER RIP LETS.

Miraculously Escape Wheels of Milwau
kee Freight at Fair
port. Mrs. Lottie Huston and little 3-year-
old- son, residing at Fairport, near Mus
catine, had a narrow escape from death
while walking on the railroad track at
the former place yesterday. They were
on the west bound track when Milwau
kee freight train No. 95 came along,
and although the engineer sounded the
whistle and rang the bell, they paid no
attention to the warning, and were
struck by the engine. The woman was
thrown to one side of the track and the
little boy to the other, and persons who
witnessed the accident expected that
both would be killed. One of the eye
witnesses stated that the first thing
he saw was the woman crawling under
the cars to look for her little son, she
having escaped with a few minor
bruises. The child Avas not so fortu
nate and was quite severely injured,
but will recover.
