James L. Schaadt nnd Charles W.
Kueppel as attorneys to represent her
In suits for damages she says she will
bring ns a result of her being accused
of practicing witchcraft.
In addition to this, a number of other
attorneys are looking up matters re
lating to the jurisprudence to witch
craft cases from the time when they
burned witches In Salem, Mass., nearly
300 years ngo. Alleutown's attorneys
nppear to be under the Impression that
while happily persons accused of
witchcraft are no longer burned alive
or hanged from n gibbet, there Is as
yet no law making It a crime to ac
cuse any one of being a witch, an al
legation which Mrs. Iininermau resents
In short, while there is no law to
punish a witch, neither Is there any to
prevent people from believing in
witches. The accusation against Mrs.
Immcrman came about through a com
bination of circumstances jollied with
her own eccentricities. She Is a be

of Dr. Kloss, the Bethlehem "naturo

litigation both as a plaintiff and n de

sitting In wet grass. Then when the
members of the family of George
Kipp, whore she roomed, begnn to suf

tion that she was a witch quickly fol
lowed. Mrs. Immcrman thinks she Is en
titled to large damages from her ac

the aldermen for having been nrrested
and confined for short periods lu the

tha flames shooting upward. He gave
the alarm. Most of the guests nnd

Newport Excited Over Elope
ment of Miss French.
COUPLE OUTWITS PARENTS.
Favorite Nelce of Mrs. Elsie Vandsrbilt
French Becomes Bride of John Paul
Geraghty, a Chauffeur Married
In Village Hotel.
Newport, It. I.. Aug. lO.-Soclnl Cir
cles are all in a flutter again, this
tlmo over tho elopement of Miss Julia
Estelle French, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Amos Tuck French of Tuxedo
and Newport, nnd a niece of Mrs
French Vnndorbilt, with John Edward
Paul Geraghty of this city, n tender
employed lu the garage of Herbert E.
Pember. Nothing has stirred Newport
quite so much In a long time ns hns
this elopement. It Is the one topic of
conversation In tho summer residence
section of tho city.
At first thero was but little credence
put in the report, but later, when It
becamo known thnt tho couple hud
been located In a llttlo Connecticut vil
lage and when, even later, a telegram
was received by Geraghty's mother
announcing that ho and Miss French
had been married, everybody settled
down to tho fact that Cupid had been
victorious In a race with tho wits of
tho families of both contracting par
ties. Before ofllclal confirmation of the
marriage reached Newport Mr. French
is understood to have gone on a search
for his daughter. Mrs. Vanderbilt.
nunt of the eloping girl, was also
called Into the family conference.
Miss French Is of one of the best
known and oldest families In the New
port summer colony. She Is about
nineteen years of age nnd very at
tractive. She is a devotee of out of
door life and a great lover of dogs and
horses. She was about Newport a
great deal, and It was a very rare oc
casion that she was ever seen without
dog, she having several ns pots at
her parents' home, Maple Shade, on
Bed Cross nvenue. Not only Is her
family well known hero, hut also In
New York and Tuxedo, where they
usually spend tho winter, owning nn
estate nt the park called Tuekesden.
Har father Is connected with many of
tho New lork clubs and her mother,
who was a daughter of Mrs. Stuyve-
Bant Loroy, together with tho other
members of her family, nro consider
ably wrought up nnd worried over the
action of Miss French.
Though Miss French's family hns
thus far declined to make any state
ment upon the subject of the elope
ment, It Is understood that she did
not tell her folks anything about
where sho was going or what she had
In mind. It was learned, however.
that Miss French's family know of
her acquaintance with Geraghty, who
is twenty-one years of age, and that
they had done nbout everything they
could think of trying to break It off.
Young Geraghty is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. John S. Geraghty, who have
been residents of Newport for many
years and who are a humble and re
spected family. Mr. Geraghty Is pro
prietor of a small livery stable here.
and his son prior to the tlmo that he
went Into the automobile business had
frequently drove a cab and other car
riages for his father.
