DYKES-VAN EVERY. What the Cross-Examination Disclosed. THE SANTA MONICA TROUBLE. The Plaintiff Tells How She Was Treated in Kansas City and Elsewhere. The case of Miss Frances Dykes against George F. Van Every to recover $20,000 damages for breach of promise is still on trial before Judge Wade and a jury. The fair plaintiff was on the wit ness stand all day yesterday and the cross-examination was not concluded until late in the afternoon. Before she want on the stand in the morning she appeared to be much agitated and could not repress her tears. Once on the stand, however, she answered all of the questions clearly and the long cross-ex amination did not confuse ber in the least. At several points she had to be given time to recover her self-possession, but these occurrences were not very frequent. The cross-examination commenced villi questions relative to tbe names of parties with whom she bad lived in Springfield, Mo., bnt Ihis lineof examin ation was ruled out of order, and defen fendant's attorney asked her if she had not told Van Every that her brother was in the County Jail for horse-stealing. This departure from the issues of the case was also ruled out after she bad in dignantly denied that such a thing had ever happened. After ibis the examination went on smoothly for a while. Miss Dykes said, in answer to questions: "Thenext morn ing afcer I met Mr. Van Every the first time I went to Mrs. Mclntyre's. Several days afterwards, when I was at my parents' home, he came out to see me." The defendant's attorney here branched off on the subject oft Van Every's letter to her, and sue said: "1 don't think I burned his letters to me, and don't remember of having, on the 26th of April, 1886, stated that I had burned them. All I recollect about the matter is that the letters were lost in some manner." A deposition, purporting to have been taken in Kansas City, was offered in evidence for the alleged purpose of im peaching her testimony. It was ob jected to on the ground that the docu met was not properly authenticated, and the objection was sustained. Continuing, Miss Dykes said: "Mr. Tan Every proposed that I should learn dressmaking, about the time we were engaged. He did not like me to be working out, and proposed that I should either go to school or learn dressmaking. I thought it was better to learn dress making before I was married, for I could study under a teacher afterwards. He asked me to be his wife, and we became engaged about the last of May or tbe Ist of June, 1884. There was no time fixed for the marriage to take place. He said IIX LOVED ACE, And that I should give op Mr. Johns, who was not worthy of me. He pro mised that he would always be kind to me, and said he was a wealthy man, and lored me. I met him in March, and in Jane there had been something else said about his loving me. I had only been to one place with him before that to dinner. I had driven with him to my sister's. In Kansas City we went out walking after evening. I asked him once to take me oat driving, as I wasn't able to walk much. He told me he would like to but he was not able. He did not take me out much in the daytime, for he was sleeping most of the time. I took dinner with him once at a restaurant, when we came from my sister's. I was very particular in Springfield about going out. Tbe peo ple were likely to talk. I was a working girl and was afraid that remarks might be made if I went out walking with a gentleman like Mr. Van Every. He was a stranger in the neighborhood and it would be natui al for them to make re marks. I allowed him to go home with me from the train the first time I met him, for it was only a short distance and he seemed to be a gentleman. It was 11 o'clock at night when Mr. Van Every drove me back to Springfield, when he said my mother was sick. We saw some few people when we went to the restau rant that night. The next morning after I staid at his cilice he got his carriage and drove me home. I had walked down the sireet and he drove his buggy and met me, and I got in. I went home then. 1 was at my sister's when he came and told me my mother was eick. He didn't take me home as he promised to do when we started. We didn't go nearer to my home than three or four miles. When we were on the road aud I found he wai aot driving me home he said that mother was not seriously ill. and he wanted me t3 go to Springfield. Mm. Mclntyre made some effort to find out Mr. Van Every's reputation. Stie said that some thing should be done to find out about him. I worked for Mr*. Mclntyre a short time after I stopped that night at hi* office. I supposed that when the $200 contract was signed that it was simply a receiot. A part of it only wai read to me. Mr. Jonn Van Eveiy told me that the money was given me to aid me. They t ild me that Mr. Van Every was sick in Florida, and probably I would never see him again ; that he would send me $500, and that I could return toe $200 when 1 got it. Afterwards 1 found out that their etatemeijta weie not true, and I brought snit in Kansas City. Mr. Van Every promised me an engagement ring and a gold watch. He spoke of it on the day we were engaged. He also made me a preterit of a bible, which I have now. On the way from my sister's he told me a number ot nice bible stories, one of which was TJIK STORY OF JOSEPH". I don't remember whether he told mt the story of Potion ar's wife. lam not a member of any church. In Kaneaj City he went under the name of Mr. Jo> en, and I went under the name of Mrs. Brown. He introduced me to the land lady by that name. I went under that name because in the condition in which I wan I was afraid I could not get a place to stay without I went as a married woman. He registered me at the hotel as Mrs. Brown. Ho t eated me kindly, and I expected him to marry me when we got toei<> He gave me the Bible on Christmas Eve, 1884. He told me he wanted me o road it and be a CLii tiari. He read a couple of chapters to me. He did not guy he had become converted in Florida, but he talked a good deal about Christianity. He came to me angry at one time with a paper containing a list t f wants, and told me to go ont and work. 1 did go out and tried to work, but I was LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD. SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 28, 1889. sick, and went back after two days. I told him I was sick, and was not able to work. He told me once that he would bring me to California, but I was not able to travel. My character previous to my acquaintance with Van Every was good." At the opening of the afternoon session the attorney for the defendant offered in evidence a part of a document signed by plaintiff in Kansas City, which he stated was for tbe purpoee of contradicting Miss Dyke's statement that Van Every pro posed marriage to her. The objection to this was overruled, and the following sentence was admitted in evidence: "He never made any promise to me to the effect that he would marry me at any time." MiBS Dyke, in explaining the docu ment, said she had never heard the pa per read, to her knowledge, and she did not consider (hat it was a relinquishment of all her claims on Van Every. An other document purporting to have been signed on December 9, 1885, was of fered by counsel for defendant, but was ruled out. Both of these were handed to her, but she said she could not read them, as altogether she bad only been to school for a few months. She identi fied writing on an envelope and a card as hers, and these were shown to the jury men, for the purpose of allowing them to judge of the extent of her education. UK-nIKKCT EXAMINATION. In reply to questions by her own coun sel. Miss Dyke said: "I am not married and have never been married. I lived with Mrs. Wylie here until I got into trouble at Santa Monies. After I got out of prison I went to live with Mrs. Wade, who got work for me at Mrs. Harmon's. I went to Santa Monica to see Mr. Van Every at his home, and got into trouble in front of his house. I had my let'ers with me at the time. I met John Van Every on the way to the house. He callod me bad names, and told me not to go on. I said I was going to see George Van Avery and went to his home. Charles Van Every was in the yard and saw me. He said to me 'Don't come any nearer or I'll break your neck.' I did not go any nearer, but stood by the gate. He ran toward me, and as I was afraid of him I pulled my revolver. I thought he was going to kill me. Then Charles Van Every knocked me down and I lost my letters. I was arrested and taken to the County Jail." In answer to questions as to why she wrote the card and envelope at Santa Monica, she said: "I wrote to George Van Every to see what had become of my baby, which had been taken from me at Kansas City. I wrote to him to come and see me, as I wanted to find out what had become of my baby." In reference to the documents which had been offered by the counsel for de fendant, she paid: "I was with George Van Every at Kansas City and was liv ing at Mrs. Chamberlain's. One day he asked me to go out walking and asked me to put on my veil. 1 did not want to for I could not see so well, but he fixed it on for me. When we got on the street we took a car, as he said it was a good ways to where we were going. We stopped in front of a large building, where he said there was a friend he wanted to see. We went up stairs and he took me into a room, where I saw a gentleman named Allbrittain sitting at a desk. He told me to eit down and that he wanted me to sign a document. They read some paper which contained Mr. John's name and asked me to sign it. I did not want to, but Mr. Allbrittain said that Van Every would not do anything for me if 1 didn't. I was sick and they put a pen in my hand and insisted that I should sign the paper. I did not have any money at all at this time and was sick and in a delicate condition." A this point a continaance was taken until Wednesday morning next. tiood Mew* for she Public. The cheapest place in the United States to live.

All diseases of the respiratory organs treated by the most improved medical inhalations and the Compound Oxygen treatment, which has such a world-wide reputation in lung and nervous affections. We take pleasure in announcing to the pnbllc tbe fact that we have introduced the COM POUND OXYGEN TREATMENT with our sys tem of the practice in the cure of Asthma, Bron chitis, Consumption, Dyspepsia, Insomnia, Sore Throat, catarrh, Rheumatism and Nervous Prostration. As is well known, oxygen is the life-giving principle in the air we breathe and ozone in tbe air Imparts that happy and buoyant feeling after thunderstorms. Persons often require more oxygen than is in the air around them, and cause doors and windows to be opened, tear off collars, loosen tbe waist, aad call for a fan to displace the stifling and bring fresher air or more oxygen. Traveling is done mainly to resorts where the air contains more oxygen, and mountains are ascended to breathe the ozone, which is light aud ascends from the earth. Oxygen and ozone are gases, and must be stored up and used by inhaling tntm. Our apparatus for storing aud giving these gases, compounded with other suitable agents, is per fect; and, although they are not a cure-all, yet they are undoubtedly the greatest invention made in the last 20 years in any department of medicine, and the results are truly wonderful. Oxygen acts by purifying the blood, thereby increasing the circulation, promotes absorp tion, improves digestion and assimilation, in creases the capability of the lunss, and acts as a gentle stimulant to the nervous system. The London, England, Ixmcet, very truthfully says; "The Compound Oxygen treatment is the greatest discovery of the Nineteenth Century.' Clergymen, statesmen, lawyers, doctors, and all classes indiscriminately, whenever it is intro duced, botn use and recommend it. I have seen so many cases of lung diseases cured that I do not consider any case hopeless unless both lungs are seriously involved. Even then the inhalations aid us in dissolving the mucus, and in contracting and healing tho cavities, which nothing else can do with the same success. The very best references from those already cured. CONSULTATION FREE. Those who desire to consult with me in re gard to their cases had better call at my office for consultation and examination, but, if im possible to do so can write for a copy of my Medical Treatise, containing a list of questions.
