May 18, 1894 "Mrs. Luise Furness is a tall, stout woman who resides with her husband and little step-daughter on a farm near Alexandria Bay. She alleges that William Merrill, a neighbor, called her vile name on different occasions, attacking her chastity, and now she is in court making her case."
Kelly and Christina discuss this case that brought out a few skeleton from people's closets, and how the plaintiff responded when her virtue -- as well as her appearance -- briefly ended up on trial.
