BELIEVES ACCUSED MAX
SHOULD HE HEAHD
New York, Aug. 1. Frederick Mes
singer, step-father of Mrs. Crlppen. Is
ready to go to London to appear
against Crlppen. He believes how
ever, Crlppen will be given a chance
to tell his story. "I reared Belle as
my own child. She seemed happy with
Crippen and I believe they were hap
py until the other woman entered. Th
doctor was evidently taken by the
other woman's youthful charms. If
Crippen is guilty as the London police
suspect, he should suffer the penalty
of his crime. I think he should,' how
ever, be given an opportunity to tell
his story and explain what he can."

PENITENT WIFE CREEPS
AS SIGN OF CONTRITION
Chicago. As a sign of repentance
after abandoning an affinity, the wife
of J. Anderson of Waukegan crawled
on her hands and knees from her
r sidence to the residence of the Rev.
Father Kruszas, a block away. An
person walked beside his wife and the
mother of his children, goading her
to her penitent task.
After four days in the company of
Joseph Grick, Mrs. Anderson came
back to the family residence. She fell
sobbing at the feet of her husband.
For her children's sake she urged
Anderson to forgive her. The four
little ones had been crying for their
mother ever since she left and An
drrson promised his forgiveness If the
vifo would first perform some pen
anee as a sign of her contrition.
"I'll do anything you want if you
will enly take me ba"k. I want my
husband nnd my children." she cried.
Anderson considered for a moment
and then, requiring her to maintain
her nititude of humility, he told her
'to crawl on her hands and knees after
him. He strode Into the street and
led the sobbing, creeping woman down
the street toward the house of the

they entered the residence of Father
