that the direct examination In the court

her having her revolver with her on

Otherwise the cross-examination will be

Crowd Kong hi to Get In.
4 So keen was the public to hear Mrs.
de tiaulles that men and women fought
for entrance In the corridors of the
court room and then for seats In the
court room Itself, The Sheriff and his
guarda tried to keep order in front of
locked doora until the room was opened,
but were tos.cd about like ordlnaj-y per
sona. A woman was said to have fainted In
the rc ramble and to have been carried
tin etalrs. Some newspaper men had to
climb through windows. Justice Man
tling entered the court room In the midst
of hubbub, when women, who were
being 'kept back by the deputies and
tourt attendants, were shouting shrilly.
The Justice ordered the room cleared

Crowd Cornea Karly to Coart.
The desire to see Mrs. de Saulles lake
the etand and tell the atory of her mls
arahly unhappy life with her husband
drew a large crowd lo the court house
, more than an hour before the doorn were ,
in ha onened. They packed the hallway
leading from the entrance of Ihe building
to the courtroom door so tightly that at
torneys and nespaper men had to scut

Mrs. de Saulles had been brought by
her husband, something on which to
predicate her belief that when she shot
him In hi. home at We.tbury It was
because the saw that light coma Into
lila eyes which meant that ha would do
something "mean" about the boy.
Her tale began with her Ufa, in tha
beautiful Vina del Mar, har home In
Chile. It was there, when aha waa only
S years old, that she fell Into tha fire
place and received the blow on the head
which, with sunstroke later In life, so
affected her that she haa never fully
recovered from It, It I. on her mental
condition a. the reault of these Injuries
that Mr. Uterhart baaea much of the
Irresponsibility he claims for her on
the night of the murder.
When she was 11 years old she went
to a convent of the Sacred Hpart In
England, and after a few' years went
back to her home In Chile.
She was Just 16 when she first met
John de Saulles at the race track one day,
where she was with her mother and sis
ter and brother. He called at tholrhoma
a fair months later and after that waa
there often, paying ardent court' to the
young girl. He wti.i then full of the
strength and agile grace, which won him
fame on tha football field.
"He asked ma to marry him," she paid
In a low voice.
"And you consented?"
Yes." she replied. Her lips hardly
opened then, and her head was held high.
As the result of da flaulles'a sugges
tion, shs went to Fsrls with her mother
and slater, and he followed. They ar
rived In December, and were married by
the civil ceremony on December 13, 1911.
The church ceremony wa. tho day fol
lowing In th. English Catholic Chapel.
Mr. Uterhart Introduced a photograph
taken of her the day before her wedding.
It is the picture of a beautiful child, a
thick and wonderful braid of hair hang
ing over her shoulder.
Went to London for a Time.
After the marriage they west lo l)n
don for a time, cams to New (York, and
then went to Chile. It was there that
(he admlnistratora of her father's estate
handed to her the securities she had In
herited, worth about S 100,000. She gave
them to her husband,
"What did he say?" asked Mr. Uter
hart. 'lie saio. -ini is notning at an. ii
I absurd to call vou an heiress.' '

Among Ihe securities were some of a
Santiago gas company, and she told how
one of tin Saullrs's first acts was to sell
Iti.ooo worth of them.

she told of a seme which took idace
in 1:1c room next to tiers between de
Saullea and her mother. After that
quarrel he went to London and he
remained with' her mother a week and
then came' back to America with him
In August.- After a, time In the Adlron

queer little amlle.
She wanted to go to Paris to nee her

sad to-night, as I had been looking
forward with ao much eagerness to
your coming. It Is agea sine you left,
and I am wondering whether you nave
forgotten your little wife, who awalta
you anxiously, and your darling baby
boy. I had' ordered the runabout for
thla evening, thinking we would have
a delightfully rrulet and old fashioned
drive, during which we could tell each
other all the many things we have to
aay. But. however much I waa long

you save yourself this utrpleasant trip
which in the end would only allow us
i couple of hours together.
I do hope you are well I am so

to him, Knowing aa he does, that I

Two Letters Hint
SSOME of the finsncisl diSculties of Mrs. eft Smiles were revealed
in two letters, which were reud in court yesterday, one to da SatiUas
and one fo her nurse. Miss Ethel, who left her to be married. They
are-both dated August 6:
DARLING DADA Boy: I was go glad to R.t your not. thli
morning and as I read to-d.y'a omn, I hoped it would b. true.- Many,
many thanks for thinking of me and sendinr me that lovely cook book.
Aa- soon as we are in our little home, we'll try jthem all, won't we?
And we'll have auch fun! Oh, what hapBineaa it will be. Do eall me
up as soon as you know something definite Darling. I'm so excited
and so anxious, I can hardly breathe. I have prfyed all day for you
and I am sure God can't refuge. Hope you got my wire.
I wrote Miss Ethel and told her to come: also enclosed check.
Thank you for sending it. Much love to you, Darling, and God bless
you. DADA GIRL.
DEAR MISS ETHEL: A thousand pardons for having omitted
to send your rjjeck sooner. Having been on a spree to New York from
where I only iTiturned last night I forgot all about it; I feel very
badly about it as you have always been so prompt in regard to us, and
I sincerely hope you will excure me. With kindest regards, affec
tionately, BLANQUITA DE SAULLES.
to you until you wrote to m. or else
spoke one sweet word through th
phone, but, I have relented, and In
stead am going to tell you how harah
and unkind you were.
I did not think that ever In your
lifetime, even If you lived to 100
years, would you have ordered me out
of the room, much lea. gone away
without say 1 1) g good-by or where you
were going to atay That, after a
thousand and one profesalona of
love ! Well. I suppose every one's
Ideals are ahattered, and yours prob
ably also, although I have tried not
lo shatter yours, even when things
did seem so hard.
1 hope you are having a good time
In New Tork: It must be such fun to
play bachelor again; In fact It must
seem quite natural, and the last two
year, surely are but a horrid night
mare then o Inopportunely the wife's
letter cornea ! Why don't you race
with Maurice and enjoy yourself. You
will only get nervous and bored In
Bethlehem and lose your appetite.
On August 1 she wrote from South
Mr Dasunh Das I have tried to
get you on the phone this afternoon,
but when I called you you were ab
sent from the club. Lester Jones
called up and he uld everything
looked mot cheerful and that Tu
multy wanted to see you either Tues
day. Wednesday or Thursday In tha
morning. He told Tumulty to wire
you. which he did, and I am enclosing
the wire; also a letter from L. J.
which came this morning Just after
you phoned. I opened It, thinking
there might be something of Impor
tance In it, but did not think It worth
while to phone It to you. You can
Judge for yourself.
I hope you are well and are taking
good care of yourself. I am ever so
icuch better and am looking forward
with great pleasure to your return.
We might go to New York together
on Monday and then ou go on to
Washington either that plght or Tues
day and I return here, though I should
simply love to go with you except I
might be In your way.
Toodles Is very well and everything
Is as It has been. Please come to
morrow by the" Diamond without fall.
I have written on both sloes of the
sheet so aa to make the letter lighter,
since I have only Just the amount of
stamps necessary, and I want to en
dose both things I mentioned.
Much love from us both and a kiss.
Have Just opened lawyer's letter
and am enclosing It so you can make
your plans accordhigly.
On the side of this letter she wrote
"Where were you?"
Letter From Aewport.
Soon after that she went for a visit to
Newport to get away from the heat and
wrote to her husband:
Mr DakUNO Dapa I have Just
missed .vou all the time, and have been
ahsolutvly miserable without you. I
never would have come If I had known
you were going to stay behind. I feel
s selfish and mean coming away on a
Jaunt and leaving you to do the work
Dada darling, I've been so lonesome
without you, you don't know.
1 have a call In for you and while I
wait I Bm writing to you. .1 would
have done so sooner, but I expected
you to come every minute.
If 1 don't hear from you I shall lake
Ihe 1 o'clock train for N. Y. and Join
my darling little family which I miss
so much. Dada, you packed my thlnga
so sweetly and did everything Just
right; got all my clothes cleaned. I
think It's wonderful.
Thanks, and thanks again, sweetie
boy, and with all the leva In th world.
Your loving wife kisses you.
From "Taaair." to His TTarae.
Next followed a latter to Mtsa Ethel
telling about Toodlea, the hahy. written
on June 7, and on tho 17th a latter writ

be from Toodlea to his nun. It might
be a pag from th diary of a baby, a
quaint little conceit which pleased th
court room. It read :

New York to go and meet him there
to-morrow, and now Dr. Buttler tells
me It would b foolish to go before I

opportunity of distracting myself Is
barred me. Mrs. Jfeckacher has asked

Toodles Is very well, thank God.

de Faulles's hair. She then went on
tinder the questioning of Mr. Uterhart
to tell of her going with her husband
to Deal Beach In August of 1913, where
they stayed until October. De tiaullea
followed his usual habit of going down

a considerable sum. On August 23 ahe
