, Levy Heavy City Court Docket.
Louis E. Smith, prominent in New
Haven business, church and social cir
cles, husband and father of a family,
is to be the defendant in divorce pro
ceedings brought by his wife, through
Judge Edmund Zacher.
(Papers have been made out and wit
nesses secured by the prosecution, but
as the judge was called out of town
yesterday the writ serving may not
take place until to-day.
At their beautiful East Haven resi
dence Mrs. 'Smith said that the suit
for divorce was not the outcome of the
recent trial of Mrs. Ruth E- Goodnow,
Which disclosed features of such sen
sational character, but was based on
former conduct of her husband with
which she says she had borne patiently
and concealed, because of the natural
prompting of pride.
Since the report of Mr. Smith's error
has become known through his own
aots, his wife says she intends to carry
the matter to the courts and secure a
divorce.
Louis Smith is the treasurer of the
New Haven Printing company and re
cently appeared, in. the city court as
witness against his tookkeeper, whom
lie accused of appropriating funds from
the cash draw without permission.
'Judge Mathewson found that the
woman Was not guilty as Smith had
allowed her to take sums several times,
she only having to leave a note to that
effeot in the cash drawer that he might
not spend too much time in trying to
balance the books.
Much to the discomfort of Mr. Smith
the attorneys for the defense, Stanford
and Rosenberg, piled him with some
very personal questions and as a result
Mrs. Smith concluded to sue for di
vorce. It Is expected that Mrs. Goodnow will
appear as one of the witnesses for the
prosecution when the suit comes to
trial.
Mrs. Goodnow is a Duxom, good look
ing and bright woman who came here
from Holyoke, where she has a hus
band and family. She was a waitress
In a restaurant where Smith took his
dinners. He offered her a position as
bookkeeper at his establishment, which
ahe accepted.
Mrs. 'Smith Is a modest, attractive,
and refined woman of no little personal
charm. She has been active in church
work and with her husband and chil
dren resides in a very beautiful resi
dence at 278 Main 'street, East Haven.

Three year's experience with one food Is a severe test.
What can be done when It Is the proper food, Grape-Nuts, is proved
by- the statement of a woman who says:
"Up to three years ago I had sick headaches every week, and although
I had beard and read about how food affected one I never thought that could
have anything to do with my troubles until one day a friend came in and found
me suffering from a frightful headache and suggested that it might be the
food, telling me I should change my food for breakfast at least.
Breakfast,' I said, 'why, I never haw any appetite for breakfast,
there-'s nothing I would relish.' She said. 'Did you ever try Grape-Nuts?
We nse the food every morning and find it just what we relish and we know
our health is better since we have eaten if
'This was news to mo, so that very day I got two packages and ate only
Grape-Nuts and cream or milk for two weeks at breakfast and became so
fond of the food I soon found myself eating It for supper also. The result was
my headaches lessened quickly and finally disappeared, and for the past two
years I have only had a couple and have gained about 30 pounds in weight. I
can't get along without my Grape-Nuts and cream for breakfast at least.
"My husband Is just as fond of thbe food as I am, and he makes his en
tire breakfast on It, and to-day I looked over our old grocery orders just for
fun and found we have used 512 packages of GrapeNuts food since we began
eating it three years ago. My husband's health has improved Wonderfully, for
he used to be a. frail little man as white as a ghost, but now he has fine appe
tite, good color, and has rounded out in flesh nicely."

. THE ISBEL1 WILL
mPOUTASI EWHyCE J.
SENTEV YESiEBDAT.
Mr. McCuen Testified That Mr. Isbell
Told Him Every Jollar He Had
Would Go to the Tolds rAlso Testi
fied That Isbell Toll Him That lie
t
Would Not Give His Itelntlves a Cent
Other Similar Evidence.
The inquiry incidental to the contest
over the will of the la.e George A. Is
bell, a real estate deaer, was contin
ued before Judge Cleaveland in the
probate court yesterday afternoon. By
this will Mr. Isbell left all his proper
ty to Mrs. Hattie A. Todd. The rela-
tives are contesting. The lust witness
of the day was Dennis J. M.cCuen, a
linotype operator on the New Haven
Union. Mr, McCueu told of a conver
sation between himself and Mr. Isbell
which took place in the letter's office
during the early part of 1U05. Mr. Mc
Cueu had called to take an advertise.
ment for the Connecticut Farmer, with
which he was then connected, and dur
ing a conversation which followed the
transaction of the buaines?. they spoke
of the late Major Theron A. Todd, who
had died a short time before. Mr. Mc
Cuen remarked that he (Major Todd)
was an honest man. "Yes," said Mr.
Isbell. "Every dollar I have goes to
the Todds." .
Cross examination by AttonWy Is
bell, council for the Isbell family, fall
ed to bring out anything new and
Goeffry Ridyard of. Mount Carmel, who
had preceded Mr. McCuen on the stand,
was recalled, and asked by Attorney
'Arvine, who is appearing for Mrs. Hat
tie A. Todd, widow of the late Major
Theron A. Todd, if Mr. Isbell had ever
Bald anything to him about leaving any
of his property to his relatives. He re
plied that Mr. Isbell had once told him
that he would not give his relatives a
cent.
In his direct testimony Mr. Ridyard
had related a conversation which had
taken place between himself and Mr.
Isbell in the latter's office during the
month of April, 1905. Mr. Isbell had
been telling of his continued ill health
whan Mr. Illodyard jokingly remarked
that he had better make his will.
Thereupon Mr. Isbell drew a document
from one of the pigeon holes of his desk
and exclaimed "There is my will. Mrs.
Todd gets all my property."- That was
all that had ever passed between them
on the subject. Mr. Ridyard had never
made any suggestion as to how the
will should be made. '
At the conclusion of this testimony
tho case was continued until next Fri
day morning at 10:15 o'clock at which
time Attorney lArvlne "hopes to finish
his side of the case.
The morning session had been taken
up with the testimony of Frederick W.
Watterson of this city, who with Albert
J.Kenyon of New York are the only
surviving witnesses of the will, and
Harry W. Flint, cashier of the Yale
National bank, who was culled to give
some expert testimony 'on handwriting.
Mr. Watterson testified that he was
of the impression that, he did not see
the works "to Mrs." written in before
the name of Theron A. Todd In the Is
bell will when he witnessed the execu
tion of it. He said he had a very
vague recollection of tho will and could
not recall a word of it
The whole question Is over the words
'to Mrs." The heirs at law who are
contesting Mrs. Todd's right to the es
tate assert, through their counsel.
Messrs. Isell and Booth, that the words
were written in after the execution of
tho will, and therefore, it is invalid. In
supporting the will Mrs. Todd sets up
that "to Mrs." was put in at the time
of the execution.
It has been stated that "to Mrs." was
inserted because Major Todd was not
in tho habit of having property in his
own name, as has been testified to. Mr,
Watterson testified that during the
time the will was being executed he
saw Mr. Isbell call Mr. Todd's atten
tion to something in It.
"Know what it was?" he was asked.
"No."
"Might have been a bluff?" The quea.
tlon was excluded.
Mr. Watterson said he was of the 1m.
pression that the wfll was not neat. He
could not tell why he got that impres
sion. Mr. Kenyon, who had previously
been called, took the stand again and
said that the words at issue were not
in the well, so far as he could remem
ber.
Harry W. Flint, cashier at the Yale
National banks, testified that the words
'to Mrs." were written, in his opinion,
by George A. Isbell. Before making this
statement he closely examined several
papers having Mr. Isboll's name at
tached to them.
CONTEST OVER SITE.
Strife Among ; Hamden Citizens Over
New Schoolhouse.
The strife among Hamdn oitizens
over where the new schoolhouse for the
Dunbar district shall be placed will

meeting is expected. The two sites
suggested are no less t!ian a half mile
apart. The Dunbar district is in one of
the most isolated parts of the town and
one where the Inhabitants speak of half
mile stretches as city people do of a
block.

site for sale, but some of the citizen
do hot think that that is a proper one
and are going to make a suggestion of
their own. There Is about 12,000 to be
spent on the school when a site is se
lected.
