The girls mother told Eve lyn's mother they were New York so ciety people and perfectly proper, else she would not let her girl go with them. Sent Carriage for Girl. "When she came for me In the hansom," said the witness, "I remem ber hoping we were going to the Waldorf. I had heard so much of it and wanted to go there. The hansom stopped in front of a dingy looking building, in West Twenty-fourth street and I was told to get out. Mother had dressed me. My skirts were just to my shoe tops then." This was in August, 1901. "He was a big and fat and ugly man-I remember him meeting us at the head of three fligths of stairs," she continued. "He gave me presents, and my mother let go to other parties. Then he said my mother should visit some friends in Pittsburg. She said she could not leave me. He said it would be all right; that he would look after me. Finally she went. Then came an invitation to a party, but no one else was there-just two. 'They all seem to have turped us down.' he said. After we had dined and I wanted to go home he said I had not seen all of the apartments and we went to the bedroom with the mirrors all over the walls."

' CHAPPLE'8 I Wateh for Our Next Ad. I CHAPP~LS' ad o. there an interruption by Mr. Delmas, to advise the girl just what she had told Harry Thaw when he asked her. of to become his wife. It was through ig the fact that she "had told every. n- thing to Harry," that she was per s mitted by the rules of law to give her sh story to the jury. Thaw sat pale but grave faced be to side his counsel when, his wife took the stand. The two exchanged glances and the faintest of smiles ig played about the firmly set lips of the re girl. [t In the smypathy impelling story of g. the girl, the girlish fascinatioi of a voice of softest quality, yet ringing clear in enunciation, the courtroom ly lost view of the prisoner. But there iy came a halt in the girl's fight against the tears, the people who had gazed ,s unceasingly at her, lowered their eyes, as if the relief from their stare might bring her the composure she finally won. Thaw Sobs at Story. Harry Thaw, with his whole frame shaking, sat with his head buried in 'i his hands, a handkerchief covering u his eyes. Where the defendant sits he is all but shielded from the jury. Bent over the table as he sobbed, he could not be seen at all. Thus Thawi 3f sat for many minutes and when he 1. finally lifted his head, his eyes were s- red and swollen. e Even if they could have seen, the o' jurors would have had no eyes for the prisoner, they too, had turned i- their gaze from the witness, as the if tears came to her voice, as well as 1- her eyes, and each man of the 12 e seemed intent upon some object on o- the floor. Justice Fitzgerald looked -a out through the long grated windows. n The scene and the story marked a new ;t precedent in the history of criminal n proceedings. n Mrs. Thaw was still on the stand, 1- her direct examination uncompleted e when the day was done. Once during e- the afternoon she was excused for an r hour, while Lawyer Frederick Long "i fellow, was sworn to give the date of e certain letters written to him by Harry r- Thaw, subsequent to the revelations I- Miss Nesbit had made to him in Paris. t The girl had identified the writing, but the court held that the date must also become a matter of complete evi dence. Mrs. Thaw seemed to appre- I ciate the relief this incident offered, I r although during the hour and half re- t cess for lunch she had recovered from the fatigue of the two hours' spent in the witness chair during the morn- I ing. As she left the stand for the e - recess, she walked unsteadily and t passing back of the jury box, raW the fingers of her hand along the wall $ as a blind person might. Letters Are Offered. t The letters which eventually were t offered in evidence, after much ob- u - jection by Mr. Jerome and a flood of I -argument by opposing counsel, are f, i regarded as corroborative of Mrs. a Thaw's testimony, which she often k declared, in response to objections a by the district attorney, was a repeti tion of the reasons she had given n Thaw for refusing to become his wife. t, They were also offered as tending to ! show the state of mind of the defend- tl ant, just before he had heard from her own lips, of the girl he loved and her I relations with the man he claimed he in killed as a result of insanity inher- H ited in part and induced by a stress be of circumstances. tc The letters were written by Thaw to Mr. Longfellow, as his attorney. He told of his coming marriage to Miss Nesbit and of the "row they wanted to raise." Disconnected and fr jerky, jumping from the subject, they tb nevertheless show the love he bore E: the girl and he wanted among other at things that provision should be made, of that in event of his death, all his prop- tr erty should go to her. The letters lu constantly referred to "that black guard who poisoned her as a girl and st say that her name was falsely con- Pr nected with two others, besides that blackguard." . th Only two of a kalf.dozeq letters of- n, fered in evidence were read. during st the afternoon sesasio.. The others' rl tas,, probably will be presented tomorrow lad morning when Mrs. Thaw is again call her. ed to the stand. igh Will Take the Stand Again Today. ry- The completion of the direct exam ier* ination of the prisoner's wife will pos her sibly require all of tonmorrow's ses sions. There is an impression thiat )ok Mr. Delmas may strive to have it oc cupy the entire day, in order that the young woman may take advantage' of es the adjournment over Sunday and re the cover from 'her fatigue .and be pre pared for the cross examination by of District Attorney Jerome. s Mrs. T.wwas not allowed to state the niames of bertain persons, but by om consent of counsel. she gave them in ere some papers to Mr. Jerome, "in order ast to," as Mr. "Delmas said, "that the :ed presecution may, have the fullest pos es, sible opportunity to refute any of her ht statements he can find." Ily The rest of the afternoon -session was given over to the arguments as to the admissibility of letters written by me Thaw to Mr. Longfellow,. in Story is Continued. ing Mrs. Thaw contiued at length the its narration of her story. She told of ry. how she, came back. fro~ n Europe a he month ahead of Thaw. During that aw month friends of Stanford White had he' told hber many stories about the young are Pittsburg millionaire and when he re turned to America she refused to see .he him except in the presence of a third for party. When he sought an explana Led tion she told the stories. he . One was that Thaw had put a girl as into a bathtub and turned scalding 12 water upon her. Another was that he on was addicted to the use 6f morphine ed and a third declared he had tied girls vs. to bed posts and beaten them. sw "He looked very sad,' she said, "and sal told me they had been making a fool of me. He said he understood why' id, it was done. I afterward got so many' ed conflicting accounts from :the persons: ng who had told me the stories and I an heard their reputations were so bad, ig- that I finally told Mr. Thaw I did not of believe the stories. He said: 'ry ." 'You know I have never lied to as you,' and he never had." is. "When I told him the story, in ig, Paris," she said, "he' came to me and 1st picked up the hem of my skirt and vi- kissed it and said he would always re- love me.
