March, 1907", sho Bald, when Taylor
asked. Josle to marry him.
Paul Olszcfskl Testifies.
Ho stated ho was tho father of
Josephine, and that sho was under
j nge, and that he lived at Prompton.
Q. What If anything did you ever
hear Mr. Taylor say?
I A. "I go by his house and Josle
, call me. "Father come up, son-tn-,
law would like to see you."
1 I go up and set on tho stoop. I
itlnk It wns August, 1907, in Promp
ton. I go up. Mr. Taylor says I
I heard such a story before.
! Quite a few times after thnt, said
I the witness, he called me father-in-law.
i Mr. Olszefski denied emphatically
j having said "Old Taylor has got lots
of money and I'm going to have
su&.uoo out of him."
Testimony of Miss Josephine Ols
zefski: Mr. Taylor had the fresh air
children at Prompton the first two
weeks in July, 1907, nnd two weeks
In August. Miss Helen Baker stayed
two weeks to care for them, and
Mrs. Spencer took care of the last
lot of children. There were about
twelve each time, twenty-four chil
dren In all. Miss Olszefski managed
No questions were asked her on
Testimony of Paul Olszefski:
Lived in Prompton for about 20
years; moved there from Carbondale
where he stayed 2 years. Before
that ho had lived for 4 years in Nnn
ticoke, having come over from the
old country Austria, Poland.
.Miss Olszefski recalled: Q. Tell
the jury the elements of your dam
age? Q. How you were damaged?
A. I believed he was going to carry
out his promise; then I was ashamed
to face the people In my home town
when he refused. I was very much
disappointed and humiliated when he
refused me. 1 was willing to marry
William F. Taylor testified as fol
lows: Q. How old are you? A.
Seventy-five years past. Q. How
long have you been blind? A. It has
been coming oil me for the last live
years. Had a glass eye for about
ten years. Miss Olzefski came to my
employment about 1905. After my
wife left me, or I left her, I went to
Philadelphia with my sister. We
remained boarding for about 2 or 3
years. Then my sister came back
with me to Prompton and kept
house. She wanted help and finally
my sister engaged Josephine, and she
helped her in the household duties.
My sister died on January 5, 1907,
at my place in Prompton. When sho
died I intended to go alone with the
cornse to Philadelphia, but there
was "so much to be looked after; the
grave had to be opened, an under
taker seen to, and some advertising
done, and I had to see to all of this
myself, and so had to get someone
to go along with the corpse. I was
at my wit's end to get someone, and
so was narrowed down to Josephine.
I didn't want to send her because of
her youth, but there was no other
way out of it. Dr. Corson offered
his daughter's services which were
accepted. Mrs. Fitzgerald and Mrs.
Smith prepared the body. Went to
Philadelphia, and after funeral was
over, and tho family that had spent
some time with us, left, I said to
Josephlno that it would never do for
her to remain all alono with me, and
so dictated a letter to her father,
asking him to lot her sister Agnes
come down to stay with her sister,
promising to let her attend a good
school nnd board her free. Then her
father took her down and I paid her
expenses.. Q. Josephine said that
in Mnrch, 1907, in the parlor of
your house you proposed marringo to
her, is It true? A. No, sir. There
was never a word on the subject
from either me nor her. The whole
thing Is blackmail. Q. Did you ever
call Mr. Olszefski father-in-law? A.
No, sic. Q. After you returned to
Prompton in August, you frequently
uisseu Her as you left? A. That Is
an untruth. Q. You gave her a
Bible, did you not? A. Yes. 1
bought some Bibles at reduced prices
for the purpose of giving them to
those who would make good use of
them. She claimed to being convert
ed under Dr. Torrey's preaching, and
so I gave her a Bible and also one
to her friend. I wrote verses in it,
as the text came to me. She claim
ed to be converted on a certain Sun
day nnd I put that date in the boolc.
Q. You say you never called Mr.
Olsezefski father-in-law? A. Whv.
I almost fell off my porch when I
nrst Heard it.
On cross-examination he said this
is the eighth attack made on me in
tho last four years. Mr. Taylor was
handed a watch. Q. Do you remem
ber seeing it? A. Says he thought
It belonged to his sister, as she had
a gold one about that size. O. Did
you give it to Josephine? A. No,
sir. My niece gave It to her. Paid
no attention to it when his niece gave
It to her. She gave her dresses,
jewelry and that watch; things that
belonged to ray sister. Florence,
my niece, asked me what she should
do with the things, and I said: "I
don't care what you do with them.
I don't care two cents anything
The doctor was to leave his daugh
ter go to Philadelphia with tho
corpse, but he was not asked to go,
and therefore I kicked when he ren
dered his bill for trip to Philadel
phia, etc. Q. Did you want Jose
phine at the place after your sister's
funeral? A. No; and sho knew it
for sho said "You are trying to get
rid of me." I think Josephine was
forced upon mo by her father. I am
very conscientious about Injuring
anybody and therefore often suffered
many months before I would hurt
anyone s feelings.

Jury Out All Night.
A verdict In favor of the defend
ant was found by tho Jury Thursday
morning after being out all Wed

The Jury came in early Thursday

Of nil the witty things said or writ

mor that Mnrk Twain had died sud
denly. At his wits' end, he sought to
verity It by a diplomntle note to Mrs.

rumor. Mnrk Twain got hold of tho
note and telegraphed the now famous
reply. "Rumor of my death greatly exaggerated."
