In her 'yorniser dajs sh" had posed for the artlFt as a nymph for 'The Enchanted Mill" and for "The Whlr'.w nd of Fate.-' She Is ateo an elocutionist, and was in the habit of sootbins the artist when at -ork by reading passages from Fhafc'S peare to him. They had much correspond ence durimr these years of friendship. It was her habit to address him as "Dear Ciy Baby," because, she faid, he wa of a sympathetic nature and cried so easily, while he spoke of her as "Pretty Baby." Doctor Millar !. 61 years old. with gray hair and an abundance of whiskers. He was a landscape painter. Their first meet ing was on January -5. 1576. In those days she posed at the rate of 50 cents an hour, but when he learned that she was interest ed In elocution, the artist advised her to give up rosins and devote her talents to elocution. Miss Clark, after infcrmlnc the Jury of her first meeting with the -artist. In 1574, and of the fact that she pod for him, testified that after he agreed that $15 week ly be paid, she was in the habit of reading to him while he painted. She copied manu script for him, and together oftentimes they studied elocution. REFUSED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. "Are jou willing to tell this Jury just what your relations with this man wercT' atked Mr. Kelley, counsel for the artist. "Yes," answered the witness. "T have told the Jury" "Did you ever hug him?" "I refuse to answer," replied the witness indignantly. "Did you ever kiss him?" "Refuse to answer," snapped the model, growing red in the face. Artist MIUr denied that Miss Clark had been his model since 1S76. "She did not enter my employ as a model first." testified Mr. Miller, "for lama land scape painter and have been since lSdO, and had no need for figures. "I first saw Miss Clark in 1S7. She came to my studio in the Booth building. A friend of mine, who was a figure painter, got her to pose for us In the altogether at- SO cents an hour. "I next saw her in 1S75. My neighbor was Jdr Moore, a deaf and dumb artist, and she poed for nlm. She visited my studio mere ly for pastime. "I became Interested In her career and found that she had talent for elocution. I encouraged her. as 1 had written some books on Shakespearean plays and recita tions. "I told Miss Clark that she ought to go Into that, as I considered it much more re spectable and enduring. I only painted two pictures in which she Dosed, the "Enchanted Mill" and another picture, the only pictures in which nude figures appeared." THD "CRY-BABT" LETTERS. letters were admitted fromSlIIss Clark to Mr Miller, all beginning with "My Dear Cry Baby." One of the letters read: "Be a good, good Cry Baby until you see j-our Little Baby. With tver so many kisses, hugs and all the loe I am capable of hold ing in my body. "To my poor Cry Baby, from his ., . "LIZZIE." In another letter the model writes; "My Dear Co- Baby I only wish mv Crv Bali could come and doctor ra. for I am rlir- I would get better right away. "I wish I could pei-p in at you and see wluT you are uing. I rfr so far away from you I hate 110 Cry Babv to tease. 1 would give all I have Just to be with you again. , . '"LIZZIE."
