These rumors were verified, in part at

Thursday afternoon:

A dramatic Incident occurred In police
court Thursday morning during the hear
ing of tha ymona wife abandonment case.
As if by some strange intuition, John
Prower Wilfred Symons. 4-year-old son of
tha defendant, ceased his romping in the
court room and ran up to the man who la
his father, yet whom he had never seen
before, turned his little blue eyes full on
the parent's fare and Innocently Inquired,
"Who are you?"
The muela of the child's voice was heard
throughout the court room and the silence
that followed was almost oppressive. Tha
father'a face was watched by many, but
the expected did not happen. The organ
Isfa countenance did not change, whatever
may have been pulling at his heart strings.
With childish dismay the little boy ran
back to his mother and then resumed his

from Former Hasbaad on
Ground of False Hep-rerentations.
Judge Sears Thursday morning set aside
the decree of divorce granted to Mrs.
Zenetta Ball July . The court, in his
finding, saya the evidence on which the
original decree wns granted was untrue and
false In substance. Intent and purpose.
Thus Mrs. Ball finds herself with two
husbands on her hands, one living In
Omaha, Robert A. Ball, and the other,
whom she married in Council Bluffs, Mark
A. Sweney. No contest was made before
Judge Sears on the petition to have the
divorce decree set aside.
Ball, In his petition, set up that bis wife
had lulled him into nenresistance of the
original suit by telling him she was going
to withdraw the petition. Afterward, when
the divorce had been allowed and an
nounced, he grew angry because the woman
waa receiving calls from- Sweney while she
had the custody of their two children.
Then It waa Ball first Sled his petition foi

The contention of the county attorney is
that since April last Mr. Drexel should
have drawn salary only at the rate of
11.500 a year, whereas, he has been paying
himself at the old rate of tt.SOu a year.
Mr. Fink, county treasurer, waa cut to
$2,000 a year by the aame amendment, and
John Power, sheriff, to $1,500. Both'' have
been drawing at the old rate.
"This la what comes from being willing
and good natured," said Mr. Drexel. "Since
