over-ruled on the ground that the principal
tn the defense swore to the document not
having the least conception of Ita meaning.
Outh admitted that he did not know what
the document contained, and he had sworn
to the statement because he believed he was
not "getting a square deal In South
Omaha." The last reaort of the counsel
for the defense was that he himself waa too

tiaJly successful. Hyd was allowed by the
court to give his evidence In the case, which
was to ths effect that Lulu May Hyde was
his lawful wife, and rn substantiation he 1

Th play Itself la too well known to re
