In 1914, with the resumption of the trail of Cynthia Buffum, the prosecution commenced the presentation of Chapter Two of the death of Willis Buffum. The past week was devoted to placing on the record the fact that Willis Buffum was killed by arsenic and that there was more than one administration of the poison. These facts were conclusively established. The next step in the proceeding was to show that Mrs. Buffum administered this poison. This was merely hinted at the past week when it was brought out that Mrs. Buffum, when told that her husband's condition was due either to arsenic or alcohol poisoning, declared that he had been drinking large quantities of whiskey, when as a matter of fact, it was claimed he was a very moderate drinker. It was also indicated that Mrs. Buffum, as a rule, prepared the food for the family.
