Says He Put Wire Across
Windows and . Kept
Her Imprisoned
Wife Admits Firing Shot,
but Declares She Aimed
at a Tall Tree
The answer of Annie D. Talbot,
promised by the trio of legal «tars.
McEnerney. Shortridge and Barrett, in
her defense against the divorce suit
of William H- Talbot. was filed for
record late yesterday ofternoon In the
office of th« county clerk. The charges
of the millionaire lumbermen, backed
by the friendliness of his many rela
tives of more millions, are not only
specifically denied in 41 pages pt type
written matter, but Talbot \i grilled
with recriminations on every page.
Mrs. Talbot first takes exceptions
to her husband's pleadings by declar
ing that her eon, William C. was born
on March 15. 1893. instead of March 10,
and that the son. Eric, was born on
November 15. 1594. instead of Novem
ber 18, 1895. as alleged.
Denial after denial, with explana
tions, follow In the ansrwer to Talbofs
allegations, and the lumberman is put
In the position of having told only one
Bide of the story of numberless do
mestic disagreements.
An Instance, which covers the trend
of the alleged unexplained allegations.
Is the • one in - which 'he charged her
with having hidden the caps and coats
of her bons to keep them from going
to the theater with him."
Mrs. Talbot replies that she had
taken the boys to a matinee on the
day in question, that one of them was
ill and she objected to their, going out
at night. She says that Talbot himself
locked their caps and coats in a room
and when she barred him at the door,
in an effort to recover the clothing, he
took the youngsters to the theater
bareheaded and without their 1 coats.
Mrs. Talbot goes into particulars
about many things that have become
matters of public knowledge or rumor
since the beginning of her suit for
separate maintenance.
She dwells particularly upon her ex
periences at their Redwood home In
1903. In June of that year, she says.
Talbot- ordered her to Redwood and
kept her there, practically a prisoner,
until October. He Is said to have put
her in the charge of two nurses and
to have told them that she was craxy
anfl must be restrained. It is even
charged that he put wire across her
windows and, upon Inviting her into
the garden of the home, caused the
wife of Fred Talbot. his brother, to
remove all of her toilet articles.
During this period of her surveil
lance Mrs. Talbot says that she was
not permitted to write or telephone to
her friends or relatives and that for
four months she was not permitted to
see her children. During that time
they were in the custody of Mrs. Fred
Talbot and living at the Palace.
Finally Mrs. Talbot got away from
Redwood and, coming to this city, was
obliged to break In the glass door of
her Jackson street home to gain ad
mittance. She says that she demanded
her children and was told by Mrs. Fred
Talbot that she could not have them.
She was here three weeks, she says,
before she was permitted to see the
Mrs. Talbot makes no direct charge
cf ; infidelity, but she says that when
she "tenderly" asked Talbot to give up
"his ", associations "with a certain
. woman" he not only abused her but told
her there were other women he kept
company with whom she would like
The answer develops that Mrs. Tal
bot aspired to be a markswoman and
practiced to that end. .She pleads this
In extenuation of her husband's charge
that he and the children were fright
ened one day by the firing of a shot
from the window of her room In the
Redwood home. She declares that the j
pistol was loaded. on the previous day
for the purpose of shooting at a mark
end that she "fired. one shot at a leaf
en a tall elm tree, higher than the
roof of the house.". She says that Tal
bot came In front of the window and
• asked her •what she was doing and she
replied "I 'was trying to knock off the
top of that tree." She says that Tal
bot" laughed and passed- on.
She answers the charges against her
behavior' at the Manhattan hotel ~in
New York in April, 1903. by charging
Talbot with studied Indifference. After
that he is said to have declared: "J
a changed man. I have no love for
you. I am going to come and go as I
After the April fire, when they went
to live together at Redwood. TaJbot is
said to have contended . that there were
only two ways of fixing things— one
through the courts and the other to
fix it between themselves. ; "We will, all
be happier for a divorce," he is quoted
as saying: In his argument for. her to
begin proceedings or •, to permit him
ts get a divorce. without contest.
Tn her final defense the wife declares
she has sacrificed her life to her chil
dren and that she has been a true and
faithful wife. She asks the court to
deny his application for divorce and to
award her maintenance for herself and
three children and to see that his.mill
ions are properly divided.

The 'New Knabe-Angelus, the most perfect, best and
most artistic of all player-pianos, the one instrument
containing the greatest of all musical inventions, the
Melodant, has at last arrived.
What the Melodant Is,
•The Mel-o-dant— sure and perfect in its results-r-is
a patente/1 device: which has been invented to produce
automatic accentuation. In other words, the Melodant
is a device which brings out prominently every note of
* the melody of the composition without assistance on the
part 0$ the operator, subduing the accompaniment when
desired in such away as to give effects heretofore im- j
possible except by artistic hand playing.
The Melodant is perfect. It is the realization of the
dream of the niusical inventor, the one achievement
sought for years, and the final great step in -the per-
fection of the player-piano from the musician's ..point;
.«;< of view.
