1 HUSBAND'S FREE LOVE THEORY TOO MUCH FOR WIFE .Woman Asking Separation Swears Doctor Had Many Soulmates, But Held Him self Blameless. NEW TOnK, Oct. 28.-Mrs. Mary Caspc's husband, Dr. Abrntn, Caspe, Is an advanced thinker, according to his own point of view, If his wife's com plaint In a separation suit Is In lino with facts. Ho Is n member of the Socialist party, but Mrs. Cnspo asserts she did not ob ject to the vlowa lip entertained until he began to advocate freo love In his own homo, "contending that men aro not bound by any legal restraint from loving nnd living with more than ,ono woman at the same time, that It wus altogether proper for a married man to live with other women if ho loved them." Mrs. Caspe, who lives at CO Eat 108th street, says that her husband explained that to live with other women than his wlfo was at all times proper and moral for a married man so long ns It was "snnetloncd by love." Incidentally, Mrs. Caspe says that al though her husband has an Income of moro than 15000 per annum, ho appears to feel no obligation toward his children and her. Sho says sho pleaded with him to discard his theories, but that her pleadings did not avail. HAD OTHER TVIVES. "Within a short tlmo," sho says, "ho began openly to consort with women of tho samo framo of mtnd, both married and unmarried, and began to negloct the family, staying away sometimes until 4 a. m. and sometimes never coming home. I went to his ofllcc once and found him entertaining his soul mates, as ho In troduced them, whom ho loved. Ho frankly acknowledged to me, In the pres enco of our children, that ho loved and lived with a Mrs. Hoffman and Mrs. Fabrlcant and that ho no longer loved me. Ho held himself altogether blameless In loving theso other women." The plaintiff states that when she loft her husband with her children ho quit contributing toward her expenses, stat ing that he had not promised to support her when ho married hor. Doctor Caspo denies his wlfo's allega tion, and says the European conflict haH Injured his practice, which wob of tho "old school" order, nnd that it also suf fered as tho result of change of neighbor hood conditions on tho East Bide. "The practice of tho 'old school' phy sicians fell off, ho says, "and a lot of young men with new and highly unpro fessional mcinoas came Into tho neigh borhood nnd took tho practice away, "Tho Court undoubtedly knows," con tinued Doctor Caspo, "that Socialists are as good family men as men of any other political belief, and certainly there Is no necessary connection between a man being a Socialist and his strict observance of marital dutlos.

Malloy, superintendent of tho Industrial De partment of Sing Sing, today was con fronted with tho questions put to him before tho Kings County Grand Jury in the Investigation as to prison privileges granted David A. Sullivan, convicted president of tho Union Trust Company. With the campaign drawing to a close fuel has been added to tho Are by the Sing Sing scandal, as a result of which Governor Glynn has ordered Superin tendent of Prisons Rlloy to suspend Warden Thomas J. McCormick. At the same tlmo tho Governor appointed Stephen C. Baldwin, a Republican, to Investigate the Sullivan affair. SEEKS TO DIVORCE ACTRESS Doctor Charges Cruelty In That "Wife Plans Return to Stage. SCRANTON. Pa., Oct. 2S.-Dr. D. L. Griffith, 710 South Main avenue, today began action for divorce on the ground that his wife, a former chorus girl, is corresponding with booking agents with a view to returning to the stage. Ha sayB this constitutes cruel and barbarous treatment. When tho papers were served on Jlrs. Griffith sho was dumfounded. Doctor Griffith met the young woman In Beau mont. Tex. Her stage name was Ola Blessing, nnd her father is said to be a "wealthy cattleman." Christmas Toys Will Be Plentiful NEW YORK, Oct. 2S,-American Ulds will not have to go toyless because of the war in bplte of tho fact that a very largo proportion of our toys come from the warring countries and especially Ger many. Inquiries among the big toy Im porters today elicited the Information that the only result of tho war on the toy market was a big boom for tho American toy industry. "Sing, danco and bo merry, for tomor row we die," Is tho motto of Lucille Cav anaugh, premiere danseuso of the "Whirl of tho World" company. In her opinion i if. . . 0Ulcr occupation which Is so healthful as "tripping tho light fantas tic' ns sho terms It. Questioned ns to how the art might bo mastered, the dainty llttlo dancer replied: it cannot bo mastered by some not oven if they could practice for centuries. Dancers aro bom, but thnt has been said bororo. Nevertheless, tho fact remains that you can tell a 'made' dancer the mlrmto you seo ono-thero Is on Indo scribablo something that gives them away, either a trace of tho 'gaucho' or a solf-consclousncss which shows that tnoy aro not really first-class nrtlsts. A really truly dancer can often bo detect ed when a child skips about tho streot t0t" music of a hand organ." tr. hi 'L lah0 many ycars of training i.o " ouw- sno was asked. m. mos- yeSl" was tho reply. There is no limit but ago to tho amount of Improvement possible to a dancer. There Is not, or never was, a dancer who was perfect; some think thoy aro perfect because they recelvo praise and applause, but they could become still more grace ful if they tried." PRACTICE BEFORE MIRROR. Miss Cavanaugh then went on to de scribe the methods she follows In Im proving her dancing. She told of weary hours spent In front of tho mirror, where each movement of tho dance Is carefully studied- of hour after hour of rehearsing with a partner, so that each step becomes so automatic that there is no danger of confusion: for, sho says, until ono knows an pnnses or tno dance In detail as well as Just exactly how tho partner does them there Is no hope of performing well. "It Is just like memorizing a poem," sha said: "after you have repeated It over and over again for hours and hours, you finally get to know It so well that it is Just part of you; you never have to atop to think of what Is coming next." Asked her opinion of the modern popu lar dances, she replied: "They are, after all. Just stago steps simplified. I have never seen ono of the so-cnlled 'new dances' that I did not recognize as taken from some staco aten which has been known for years. Of couisc, they aro modified and, in somo oases, enlorged upon, so that most people wouldn't recognize them, but that Is what thoy are JuFt tho same." GLIDING BRINGS HAPPINESS. "Do you approve of them?" she was asked. "Of course I do," she laughed; "I approve of all dancing. I Just love It myself, nnd It makes mo so happy that I am glad when I see that other peoplo can be made happy that way. Sometimes when I am walking along tho street and I hear good muBlo I Just can't resist the temptation to dancj It just makes me so overwhelmingly happy that I don't care what people may think." "Good music, then, Is one of the es sentials?" "Yes, Indeed. A person can't dance freely fr she doesn't enter Into the spirit of the music and If she doesn't feel con fidence in tho conductor: that Is why so many rehearsals are necessary before a musical comedy can bo staged. Good music Is nn inspiration to any dancer and accounts for the success o'f mnny shows that Mould have failed miserably with out It. "Costume"! also have nn effect on danc ing. It takes a very good dancer, Indeed, to perform welt In one of tho long, filmy gowns thnt float In th air. That Is al most an nrt In Itself, for many dancers rtho can do well enough In tho ballet skirt aro hopelessly lost when they try to maneuver in '.ne of the 'Greek' dresses. CLINGING GOWNS APPROPRIATE. "Tho most beautiful costume of all. In my opinion, Is tho dress of tho clinging plaited type, but I don't like them when they have sleeves. "Dancing keeps me in good health. I am never 111, and It Is becauso I got plenty of exorcise In dancing nnd am careful about what I eat. I never touch meat In summer nnd never eat potatoes. I play golf nnd take long walks whenever possible, but above nil I keep happy, and that Is, I think, the real keynote to health, for I nm Just bubbling over with Nt nil the time nnd, well, I guess I don't look ns though I were pining away, do I?"

More Than Last Year. There Is a record cranberry crop bcltiB harvested now In New Jersey. Whether the hlntorlc aide dish of the Thanksgiving turkey will be cheaper this year Is quostlon that has not been settled by the growers. Tho crop of berries this yenr will ex ceed bv far tho American demand. Eu rope Is not buyliis luxuries nt present and never did take kindly to crnnbcrrlcs. Paris and London formerly Imported tho ber ries to sell to Americans abroad and a few Frcncli and ungiisn icarnea to cat them. len our own Southern States know little about the tart sauce which is con sidered a necessary adjunct to same nnd poultry In tho Northern States. They are being educated, howevc. uy the growers and are making inquiries concerning cran berries nnd receipts for preparing them. There are In tho neighborhood of BO ways to prepare the cranberry. They range from tho common every-day stewed cranberries to Jellied cranberries and those preserved Rnd made Into wine. nrnwern rinelAM 1.000.000 bushels of the berries will b harvested In New Jersey alone. That means the crop will be 30 per cent, larger than last year. Most of the growers havo their own ware houses nnd hold their harvests until prices suit them. There are cranberry sales or ganizations formed along similar lines to the California fruit growers' exchanges. Cranberries can remain In storage four months during the winter without be coming "mushy," and because of this tha growers can hold their harvest until a suitable price Is reached The Capo Cod berries are already In the market at J4.60 a barrel. This Is $1 a barrel cheaper than last year. They nre a perishable harvest, however, and will not last until Christmas, which Is a second big day In America for cran berry sauce. The connoisseurs chooso the frost bitten llttlo wild berry for some reason, but most persons prefer the large ones, whlclj have been under cultivation for years.

PUBINSKY'S REClTAl Violinist of Philadelphia Heard 1x1 Varied Program. The recital given at Orlfflth Hall lent night by David Dublnsky, of tho Phila delphia Orchestra, was a capable and well-balanced exhibition of tho vlollntst'B powers and ot his tastes, and th "ener ous audlenco which heard him felt a dis tinct sonso of gratification In it. Starting with Drahm's Sonata In B major, Mft Dublnsky went through Tartlnl, Vleux temps, three of Krelsler's famous arranare- mcnls, a Tschalkowsky melody and Sarasate's "Spanish Dance." In th BrahmB, which Mr. Dublnsky played front the score, his bowing was a trifle, uncertain, but the understanding of tho music waa marked, especially In comparl son with the Vlcuxtemps, which mado none but technical demands upon th artist. Mr. Dublnsky was obviously careful In his first number, but In the exquisite old world pieces he throw off undue restraint, and played Martini, Couperln and Boc cherlnl with tho easy Indifference ther demanded. A clear tone, straight forward and clean drawing of the bow, and no trace of sentiment wero the excellent characteristics of his work. The adagios of both sonata and concerto wero best plajed, and Indicated both Mr Dublnsky's etrength and his limitations, for the al legro "with fire" was not so ably done. Store Opens 8:30 A. M.
