Mrs. Carman has decided that if
people do not believe th? statements
she has -?lready made concerning her
actions on the night of the ?hooting
?He will not try to convince them bj
repeating them for publication.
Mrs. FIWab"*h Variance, the nurse
whoaa kiaa caused Mrs. Carman to in
atall a dictagraph so that she might
overhear the conversations between bar
husband and his women patients, to-day
rema nod ?> strictest retirement in the
al ?ne aantheasl corner of Fong
Peach sv. and Lena St., Prcoport,
"! on'l be Interviewed,** she told the
famil; which employs her to nurse a
little baby, "but I feel the deepest
humiliation over the fact that 1 had to
go to Dr. Carman to borrow money has
been milde the subject of gossip all
over the country.
"Ian a poor woman and often I ha\e
come near to being in actual need. Dr,
Caiman has been a good friend. He has
'ent -n? money and 1 have repaid it as
1 could.
"Mrs. Cannar. certainly insulted me,
but she need not have thought, it noces
sary after that to tell me that she did
not want to see me enter her house
again. I have too much pride to go to a
a second time after 1 have been
"I suppose ?he story of tiie trouble
I had at the ? arman bouse had to
come ont, but it has hurt and mortified
me deeply. Dr. Carman is a true gen?
tleman and a generous frie.id to any
one in trouble. I believe Ko would give
or lend Ins last cent to a person who
reeded i??>lp. I have worked hard to
make an honest living during my life,
!:? I have alampa been honest and re?
spectable, and I think there I? no one
who kno?v me who will not say the
same thing."
The man who is at present employ?
ing Mrs. Variance said lie felt the deep?
est sympathy for her. He declared she
had been "terrible cut up" over all the
publicity the inquest has brought h"r.
ami added:
"If I was to let you have a glimpse
at her once you would understand that
if -die did kiss Dr. Carman, as his
v.:', testified, ?he gave him th? kiss
purely out of a feeling of gratitude and
to express her d"ep appreciation of his
help. If you saw her you could un?
derstand better ?han I ca i make you
that she is not the woman with whom
Dr. Carman would start, or attempt to
start, a flirtation."
Mrs. Variance probably will tfstify
st the inquest Monday.
The chief subject of conversation in
Y re? nort households to-day was the
? r.t' Mra. Carman o.-i the stand

her connection with the case was en?
tirely impersonal,
It was recalled time after time to-'
day that only once did her iron con?
trol weaken. * That was when she was
going over the scene in the doctor's
office when r.he faced Mrs. Variance
and ?truck her with thv backs of her
fingers. In voluntarily her expression
pie tense, h?r teeth clenched. She
was mor? of the primal woman than
Frepporl had ever before seen her.
Even sfter the lapse of .seeks it was
plain that she could not go over that
episode without living it in part.
without feeling some of the emotions
she then felt.
While amazement and amusement
predominated In the discussion of
what is frequently called her "foolish
jealousy" of Mrs. variance, there i? no
lock of genuine sympathy for Mr-?. Car?
man in the position in which she now
finds lierse!;'. This has been shown by
the constant calls lier friends have
mude upon her to express their sym
pathy and th??ir attempts to show it
by gif's of flowers and fruit.
Mr-:. Carman's family and her elOS
es! friend? assert that Mrs. Carman's
self-control is a tribute to her superb
courage and not indicative of any lack
of feeling. They say that she has
suffered acutely: that her health is
giving way unde? the continued
strain: that she ha? frequently been
hysterical i?i her own home, and that
only to the world does she present a
nonchalant appearance.
Mr?. Carman, however, *till pre?

i? not pale, her color is good, her es m
show no Signs of ?leenlessness or
tears, hrr step is elastic and her voice
is firm. Her troubles ha\e not made

she took the witness stand.
Throughout the day crowds of cu-I
rioui persons from New York and the
tos o- surrounding Freeport visited the
(atinan home. The double holiday of
the Fourth and Sunday, coupled with
the inviting weather, brought even
more than the usual number of auto
mobilists out, and most of them made
it a point to get a glimpse at the scene
i of the tragad].
Many of them stopped in front of the
for a moment or two, and some
expressed their desire to walk about
the spacious grounds to get a better
idea of how the murderer could pos?
sibly escape without being seen. Po
lieemen stationed around the house
kept the inquisitive one.i off the lawn
and prevented them from loitering too
long in the street.
The sightseers were not confined to
those who could como by automobile.
Farmers with their families in carry
nils, those who walked into town and
?ho<e who came by train were also to
be seen. They stood on the sidewalk
and manoeuvred about to get u b?
glimpse of the office where Mrs. Baile)
ua-? killed. All debuted the various
phaeea of tha tragedy and speculated
on the probabilities of an erreat.
"Freeport is on the map" is the way
most of the local inhabitants sum the
situation up. Regardleaa of the out?
come, the village has enjoyed a wave
of prosperity that ,. unie than v.el

dreds of elghteooro, ?ho stopped long
enough to get a good glimpse of the
town, and ?everal scores of reporters,
who have been glad to adopt Freeport
with its cool breeze? as s temporary
The Carman house is on the Merrick
Road, one of the principal thorough
far,s of I-ong Island and ?lirec'ly on
th? lOUrse of a large part of the auto?
mobile travel. It i? surrounded by a
large lawn and trees that would have
served as the setting for several small
family picnics during the day had it
not been for the forbidding look of the
nolicemen. One car, filled with four
women, two men and two children,
stopped on the curb while the occu?
pant? discussed the case. A large bulg?
ing lunch basket fastened on the run?
ning hoard seemed to be the centre of
attraction with the children, while the
older people discussed the attractive?
ness of the grounds. Finally they de?
cided to ?eek some other place where
the guardian? of the law were not ?o
unpleasantly apparent.
The ?arman bouse WBS photographed
from BVery angle possible from the
lidewalk. Pleas to the policemen to be
allowed 10 go up on the lawn "just
one?' to get a picture of the window
through which the shot was tired"
availed nothing. "Order?!" the officers
responded. Some el the throng loi?
tered about the opposite side of the
street, hoping that either Dr. Carman
or Mrs. Carman woul?! ??a?e the house
for a ride, but they were disappointed.
Mrs. Carman ?lid not show herself SVOB
at a window, and only once during the
,1,1. did the doctor lea?? the bonae.
Then he got in his machine in the
garage an?! drove out before the crowd
?ras aware who had passed them.
"Some one's conscience at this mo?
ment is being stung, stung with terror
and horror wor?e than could be caused
by a thousand scorpion|, and in Hi?
time God will reveal the truth and
solve the mystery which h?? brought
