She àd mitted that in some, inutances he may have been extravapant, run-ning- up bills to the amount of $4,000 a year. She said this was well within her husband's income.

Lorenzo NVoodhouse, parents of ber husband, whom she is su in for 1,000,000 for alleged tdien ations of affertions, Mrs. Dorritt Van Deusen Stevens NVoodhouse, v.-a.r under cross-examination aain today and it was expected she would complete her testimony be fore court adjourned. The pretty youns matron appeared weary of the Inng continued grillintr she has received from the defen.se attor nty. Dr. C. IL Beecher testified to be inp. calieri to see Mrs. Douglas N eorihouse on June 17, 1920, after she had returned to this city from Ti xa.s. He found her suffering fiom extreme jiervousness and monte 1 depression. He found no physical reason for her condition. Refen-ing to the statement of th. plaintitf that she did not see her husband from November 2, 1P10, unti!' March, 1920, Attorney Bullarrl asked Mrs, NVoodhouse, durinjr cross-examination: "At this time or any other lime, dui you undertake to talk to Lo renzo or Mrs. NVoodhouse as to wliere Douglas was or what he was rioing?" "No," the witness rpplied. "NVhy?" asked Mr. Bullard. "They had refused to .speak to m - personally and I didn't think they would talk to me over the tei ephone." Attorney Bullard asked a num bv of questions about the illness of Douglas at the Long Branch hospital, and stressed the fact that tiie w itness did not notify her hus band's parents that oDuglas was ili. The witness said she did not realize at first that her husband was so seriously ili. She said that tlu re was no reason that she knew of for not notifying his parents. That was before there was iny ap pi, rent hostility on the part of his parents toward her, she said. Testifying regarding the attitude of Lorenzo NVoodhouse toward her when he rame to see his son it the hospital for the first time, the witness said that he ignored her. She stood in his vay and spoke to him, but he never noticed her. Queried as to whether the ar rangement for Douglas to take the trip to Florida without her occasioned some hard feeling, the witness said that it did to some ex lent. Pressori further as to why she diri not gel in touch with Lorenzo NVoodhouse by telephone in New York and finii out why Douglas w.is being taken from her, the wit ness sairi that Lorenzo had never conriesceiirieri to speak to her and Mie could not make him talk, if he dcn't want to. "You oomplaineri that your hus band diri not support you," .said Attorney Bullard. "Diri you run bill: to the amount of $t,000 or $.1,000 Within 18 months'.'" The witness said it might have amounted to that much. Attorney Bullard produced a lettor and asked the witness if she wiote in that letter: "Douglas, deal, you haven't said you loved me l'or one whole month." The witness said she wrote it, but she didn't believe it was so. FRASER METZGER DENOUNCES KLAN NORTIIFIELD, Nov. 2.'! The "contemjitible secrecy and rlamn able cowarriice" with which the Ku Klux Klan operates alone are ' ufficient to conriemn the organiza tion as totally un-Amorican, le claied the Rev. P'raser Metzger in ;al.!ressing the catlet eorps of Nor wich University here on "Citizcnn' Ohliuations and Personal Rights." The very fact that every move wh'eh the Klan makes is vederi in the closest kind of secrecy should accuse clear thinking Americana ti look upon it with suspicion.

The ADYISEEAST DIBURKE FARMERS Wives Interested In Many Projects In Home Economics Representative farmers and their wives spent NVednesday af ternoon in the Congregational ves try at East Burke discussing bet ter home economie- and more suc cessful farming. under the direct ion of officials of the Caledonia Farm Bureau. Burke is one of Caledonia's most progressive towns and East Burke is a thoroughly up to date village, with better sidewalks and Street lights than St. Johnsbury, the up-to-date Burke Mountain Club and beautiful club house, good stores, loages, mills and a full-fledged brass band. It is the home of Mountain View Farms, whero the best Jersey cattle and Morgan horses in the country can be seen and admired. It is where the famous Dari.'ng cheese is made and there is no better to be had in any market. Through the energy and generosity of Elmer A. Dar ling, whose beautaul home "Burk lyn Hall," is an inspiration bv day and a beacon by night for mile.s around, a unique atti-action is to be added to the interesting land marks of the village. The old school house in the "White Dis trict," two miles up the river, which has long been owned hy the Burke Historical society and is seti as a neighborhood niuseum, it to be moved to the village and kept up a.s a museum of interesting things in the history of the town. It will be filled with relics of ali kinds and will prove an interest ing place to visit. It will be umquo and the only landmark of the kind in Vermont. With ali these interesting things in the village as a nucleus, it is no wonrier that the farms for miles around have an up-to-date touch, one in one way rnd one in another that makes Burkc's agri cultural ptoblem differont than that in most towns of is size. It is distinctively a hay produciti;' territori-, but nearly everybody wants some side-line product to aug ment the dairj-. An encouraging feature of these fimi bureau meetings is the large number of children pre.-ent.
