She plainly showed the ef- fect of the trying ordeal she has passed through during the last two days. Great black rings were under here eyes and her face -was white as paper. Nevertheless she rose to her feet when the inquiry began and res- ponded bravely to the direct examin- ation. The presiding Judge M. De- valles showed anxiety at the outset, lest the strain of previous days 'had taxed the witness5 strength too se- verely. But he was quickly reassured by Madame Steinheil, who said, "No, I am not at all fatigued." In opening the examination, Judge Devalles dealt with, the appearance yesterday of Rene Collard, an actor, who caused a momentary sensation by asserting that he was the real assassin. The judge disposed of this inci- dent 36 pure invention. "It is nothing more than a said the court.

Judge Devalles pursued his examination relentlessly when'he pinned her down with proof that she had concealed, jewels which she af- terwards said had been stolen, she turned her back on him and with crossed arms and flashing eyes ad- mitted that she had done so, justi- fying 'her action by the motherly in- stinct of shielding her daughter from the knowledge that these jewels had come from her lover.
