She told of her threats to kill nnv

her testimony, "that my liii-lmiid nnd

two girls under an assumed name.
1 told Cumiuctti thnt I knew nil

"I also told Cnminetti thnt he wn

so much and leaving me nlone. Of

would go out together. A girl whom
I nfterwnrd learned was Mis War

"A girl high in society who would
run nround with n married man is
not fit for my huhnnd to run around
"These two girts are nothing but
homew reekers. I told Cnminetti
that if I ever caught Maury with
Mis Warrington I would shoot her
down like n dog. Cnminetti begged
me not to do it.
"I told Cnminetti thnt I had treat
ed Mis Warrington like a lady, that
she hnd been united to my house nml
even hnd cuddled my baby on her
"I was determined thnt she should
suffer as much ns I hnd suffered.
