Through his lawyer he filed a formal general denial of the charges of "mental cruelty" The entire testimony required only slightly more than five minutes. Mrs. McAdoo, who is 43, told of being unhappy by divergent interests ol herself and her husband. She said he was mainly interested in politics and insists on remaining in Wahington where she could not stay on accounl of the effect of the climate to her health. She said her main interests were in artistic pursuits such as paint- and sculpture. The results of this divergence of interests, she said, caused her "mental suffering, and aggravated her nervous condition. In a statement Mrs. McAdoo said "the incompatibilities which have a. risen out of our divergent tastes and interests drove us reluctantly to the conclusion that a legal separation was the only solution." "As a senator," she said, "Mr. Me. Adoo is obliged to spend the larger portion of each year in Washington. The climate there does not agree with me and it is impossible for me to live there. I have, and always shall have the greatest admiration and affection for Mr. McAdoo." The senator said she had "correctly stated the reasons for the separation."

When Howard came in. late and hurrying, she was already dressed and the shining satin was covered by an engulfing apron, the skirl tucked up. while she finished th« last things in dining room and kitchen. That was why he did not see her until he ran downstairs just as the first guests rang the bell. Ha stopped and exclaimed: "Why. Amy —darling! You look like an angeJ —that lovely dress—" "Do you remember it?" "Do I! What do you take ma for?" He could not go on, for Mr. Prentice was entering, red and puffy and obviously disgruntled at 1 being switched from the dean to an obscure and young member ol the faculty.

Miss Rosa always got along well with Howard and Edgar. Jane alone was discontented. Coat fat little pig beside her was clamoring for her attention. She wanted to talk only to Howard. She wondere4 « be had asked to h not know that Jane resented and hated her anew. She did not hate Jane. She did not think of her, nor ot the others, very clearly.
