He testifled that diu-ing hor stay at hio houso Mrs. Tilton has conducted j hersolf properly, récoivïn'g calis f rom but foiv people. Upon eross-examination the witoeee stated that Plymouth Church had paid him severa! hundred dollars for tlie board and clothing of Mrs. Tilton and her children, and that he expected more from tho samo source.

Hhowi evident eigns tliat the continuoiis mental strain and Htilling atmosphere are telling npon him, and lie complaius of severe headache.
