WANTED HER TO
WEALTHY CHICAGO MAN TRIED
TO INDUCE MRS. EATON
TO LEAVE ADMIRAL.
Plymouth, Mass, Oct. 22. A refer
ence to "a wealthy lover in Chicago,"
who wanted Mrs. Jennie May Eaton
to leave her husband, was introduced
today by the prosecution as showing
a possible motive in the trial of Mrs
Eaton, charged with the murder of her
husband, Rear Adniral Joseph G.
The evidence was given in the testi
mony ot Mrs. Marshall Bursey of
Washington, D. C, who said that eight
months before the admiral's death Mrs.
Eaton told her of the Chicago man and
According to Mrs. Bursey, Mrs.
Eaton did not disclose to her the name
of the alleged lover but said that he
owned much property and had prom
ised to leave it all to her.
Mrs. Eaton told the witness that
Admiral Eaton had attacked her sev
eral times at night and at one time she
awoke to find him injecting medicine
into her arm.
Mrs. Eaton, also said according to
Mrs. Bursey, that she was going to
have the admiral examined by an ex
pert and if he was found to be insane,
have him put away.
During her stay in Washington, said .
Mrs. Eaton, received much mail post
Mrs. Sarah R. Ducher, a clerk in the
Bureau of Children and Guardians inf j
Washington, said that while calling the,
attention of the District Court to the j
case of a child who was not receiving !
proper attention at an orphanage, Mrs. I
Eaton asked her to destroy all records j
in the case, saying that her name was
Owens and that she was the grand
mother of the child. Later Mrs. Eaton
gave several other names and finally
admitted she was the wife of a naval
officer. The case was finally settled
and Mrs. Eaton took the child.
How Mrs. Eaton tried to trail her
husband's footsteps by scattering tal
cum powder on the attic stairs, at the
morning session was described by
Frank S. Booth, a Rockland optician.
"Mrs. Eaton told me that her hus
band had tried to poison her," testi
fied Booth. "She said she thought he
had hidden poison in the attic and that
she had searched for it but could not
find any. Then she told me she scat
tered talcum powder on the steps lead
ing to the attic in the hope of trac
ing his footprints. Her trap failed."
When Court adjourned for the night
many ot the women auditors lelt in
automobiles, scores of which sur
rounded the building all day.
District Attorney Barker said the
State Probably will rest its case tomor
row alter hve more witnesses have
been examined. The defense expects
to occupy three or four days.
Conditions in the Eaton household
were described by neighbors at the
trial today. Mrs. William Magoun told
of a strange preparation which Mrs.
Eaton said the admiral had mixed for
June, her daughter by a former mar
riage. The mixture, according to the
witness, contained soap, vinegar and
either pepper or salt. Mrs. Magoun
said she never saw anyjevidence of
insanity in the admiral. JjHiiiti
gJiMrs. AbbeJC. Cottrell, who kept
house for the Eaton's for a time when
Mrs. Eaton was not living with her
husband, testified that she had never
seen any signs that thejadmiral was
of unsound mind.

By ESTHER VANDEVEER
My name 1 Arietta Hope. I consist
of 400 page, with a good deal on a
page. I am of two kinds, printed mat
ter and girl. The girl part is heroine
and the paper part 1 book. But sine
the heroine part is the living half 1
i consider myself Arietta Hope.
My maker Is a woman of thirty-five,
an age at which one may be expected
to have attained to a correct knowl
edge of her sex. Yet since she did not
issue me under her own name, but the
assumed name of a man, Edgar Har-1
ding, she Is not only unknown to those
who have read me, but unless she is
hetraved bv certain feminine traits
dlsplayed in me she is supposed to be
Marcellne. When my maker had fln-j
Ished me she sent me the round of!
publishers through the express com-
panies, so that she did not mase ner-
elf known to them. However, she re
quested as an especial favor that they
would send her the criticism of their
"readers," these person being employ
ed te read manuscript and report to
the publisher whether each in their
opinion would be a profitable book for
them to publish. The publishers usu
ally paid very little attention to my
maker's request, though a few did.
These criticisms were almost always
where the "reader" had made some
facetious remark about the story. The
Brat one my maker received waa aa
"Mr. Harding ha written a long
story purporting to portray a woman
The author must have written the
book with a mirror before him. Wheth
er be ha portrayed himself or not la
not apparent, but certain It is that
be ha painted a man in petticoat.
Arietta Hope give every evidence of
having been constructed by one of the
male sex. I would decline it"
Long after the receipt of the critfr
cism my maker made the acquaintance
of this critic and found him to be a
young man still in his 'teens.
My maker, having spent two years
upon me, at the same time studying
different women from whom she drew
certain feminine traits "which she in
stilled into me, was much discouraged.
If the representative of a prominent
publishing house had mistaken ner
heroine for a petticoated man, what a
dreadful failure she must have madel
She put me in a closet and looked me
up with the intention of never taking
me out again. But some one told her
that Dodson & Co. were looking for
novels not of the flashy type, but stud
ies of character and she decided to
submit me to them. So 1 was sent by
express, a letter going by mall beg
ging the firm to give her some Idea of
the merit and demerits especially the
latter of the story. The manuscript
was returned to ber, accompanied by a
letter, In which the writer courteously
explained to ber that more than 00 per
cent of the novels published were read
by women. Women required stories
that showed the feminine touch. Mr.
Harding had shown high literary ex
cellence, bttt be bad not succeeded In
portraying a woman.
My maker determined that when sh
sent me out again she would adopt a
feminine nom de plume. She made a
new title page, with Edith Oranger on
it Instead of Edgar Harding, and dis
patched me to the Parklngton Publish
ing company. She was again success
ful In eliciting a courteous reply, which
included the reader's report. It was as
"The author has given a picture of a
woman who is sure to antagonize ber
own sex. Arietta Hope la altogether
too feminine for a heroine. In reading
about ber we would surmise, did , we
not know to the contrary, that she had
been drawn by a man, so many of
those volatile traits common to wom
en are found In ber traits that men
love to ridicule."
"Good gracious 1" exclaimed my mak
er when she read this. "Then I've
lumped from the trying pan Into the
My maker determined upon on more
effort, and if that failed she waa re
sol rod to burn me. She sent m to
Littleton Brother. Within a few day
she received a letter from the firm
stating bluntly that they would not
car to publish me at their own risk,
hut If riie would pay the coat of pub
lication they woald pot their Imprint
on the title page of the book, publish
Ing it a their own.
My maker having all a woman' en-'
rlosity, desiring to discover who waa
right about the book, accepted the con
ditions. She sent the publishers a
check, and they published me.
I was a long while getting before the
public, but I succeeded in the end.
Certain men recommended me because
they ld I was a man's woman, and
certain women spoke well of me be
cause they said I waa a woman' wo
man. This at last gave me a start
and aa I pleased both men and wo
men I took in all there was except the
children. Anyway, I kept growing and
growing in popular favor till I was
pronounced what publishers call "phe
nomenal." Littleton Brother were very angry
because they must pay a larger royalty
than usual, having published me for
my author instead of themselves. Nev
ertheless, they made a fortune out of
me, and when congratulated on their
foresight they look wise and say noth
ing. I am now in my fourth hundred
thousand, and the demand for me eon
tlnoea. My maker ha built a country
place, where she ha retired, spending
much of her time m declining requests
f publishers that she writ for them.
