testified Frank Merrill, "ant cutting out
the accojnt of the fire he ahowed It to me
and said, 'I guess 1 showed 'era where to
head In,' or something like that."
Merrill notified the Sunderlands, who In
formed the police. The officers promptly
gathered Smith In and found the clipping
in his vest pocket.
Oilier witnesses Friday were Hugh Boone
In charge of the barn, and William Kobb,
ysrdmaster for the company, both testify,

The defense, in addition to denying the
confession, will try to prove an alibi.

Wants His Wife Back Hubby
No. 2 is Willing;.
Frank Newbanks was Enoch Ardcn
enough to be absent from hla wife twenty
years and Mrs. Newbanks believing hun
dead took a new husband In the interval.
Here, however, the likeness to the Tenny
son poem ends.
When Enoch did appear on the scene
after his Island exile he looked In througii
the window. It will be remembered, ami
not saying a word fell down beside the
house and wept. Nor did he reveal the
fact that lie was alive.
Newbanks was not so self-sacrificing a
soul. When he came to Omaha he gut
himself In police custody for Intoxication
and prevailed on the officer to lead him
up to tho house where his wife, now Mrs.
Samuel Morris, lived. He knocked on the
door and Mrs. Morris opened: It.
"I have come back," said Newbanks.
To this self-evident statement Mrs. Morris
replied by Inviting him to go away and
stay another twenty years.
Her husband, who Is an officer on llr
Omaha police force, has since brought ault
for annulment of marriage snd this cast
came before Judge Redkk in district court
Hu testified that Mrs. Morris In addition
to having one husband too many. Is also
addicted to drink. Morris declared that his
wifo told him while he was courting her
that she had been married before, hut that
she had been .informed that Newbanks was
dead, and that she did think him dead Is
Ths contest In court Is chiefly over two
little g rls, both Mr. and Mrs. Morris wish
ing to gain custody of them.
Mrs. Morris' first husband, Newbanks, Is
declared to have come from s well-to-do
Cincinnati family snd to have been a Col
TELL MERCHANT TO WHACK UP
Mrary Cohen of South Omaha Mast
Tara Over $1,044.4S to Tras
tea la Baakrapty.
Henry Cohen, a merchant of South
Omaha, who filed a voluntary petition In
bankruptcy In the United States district
court some time sgo, Is given ten days In
which to turn over to the trustee In bank
ruptcy, Sidney W. Smith, property to the
value of $1,044.45, which, It Is alleged, ho
has sought to concesl, or take the conse
quences. This order is made by Referee in Bank
ruptcy J. A. C. Kennedy, who Fridsy morn
ing filed his complete report with record of
evidence, and schedules. Referee Ken
nedy's report states that there remains the
amount of $1,044.46 which, It is alleged, that
the bankrupt seeks frsdulently to conceal,
and that the trustee In bankruptcy la en
titled to the pomesslon of such property.
Cohen filed his voluntary petition In
September, 1908, scheduling his liabilities at
$7,661.04 and his assets st $5,033. Cohen
had applied to make a further ahowlng of
his liabilities and assets, but this was re
fused after hearing the evidence, by both
the referee snd trustee In bankruptcy, on
the ground that the record would thereby
be unnecessarily encumbered. The flnsi
hearing on the case and report Is dated
April 10, 1909.
