MAE WOOD INDICTED
Woman Who Sued Senator Piatt for
NEW YORK: Mae C. Wood, of
Omaha, the woman who sued United
States Senator Thomas C. Piatt for di
vorce, was indicted by the grand jury
on a charge of perjury and forgery.
Miss Wood was charged with hav-
ing signed Senator Piatt's name to a
document acknowledging her as his
wife. The perjury in the Indictment
is based on Miss Woods' testimony in
her divorce action when she testified
that she was married to the senator
at the Fifth Avenue hotel.
McCleMan Wins Over Hearst
NEW YORK: Mayor George n. Mc
Clellan's title to the office of mayor of
New York City was made clear by the
decision of Justice Lambert in the su-
preme court when he ordered a jury
to render a verdict that McClellan was
duly elected mayor in 1905. W. R.
Hearst has been contesting the may-
ors' right to the office practically over
since the election and as a result of
his charges of fraud in the original
count of ballots the legislature passed
a law enabling a recount.
"You should have awn her!" said
the girl with the turquoise ring. "Her
hat may have been the style,
but it was a fright, and she looked aw-
"Did she?" Inquired the girl with
the lace waist, disinterestedly. "She
had a pretty one on the other day."
"Well, it would have done your
heart good to see her in this one!" de-
clared the girl with the turquoise
"Would It?" murmured the other.
The young woman with the tur-
quoise ring sat back in her chair and
her eyes were wide with sudden
"See here!" she burst out. "What's
come over you? You don't seem at all
interested! The way you've been
going 011 about Madge all winter and
spring was enough to make one think
you'd be tickled to death to hear that
she looked homely! Why, you laughed
yourself sick when 1 told about the
spectacle she- made when she went
"Oh, I laughed at your amusiug way
of telling it, not at her!" protested the
young woman with the lace waist.
"Well," insisted her friend, "I don't
see what you mean now. Didn't she
deliberately try to cut you out with
Harry, and weren't you mad enough
"Really," began the girl with the
;.ace waist, in a pained voice, "1 think
you misjudge Madge. She is such a
"Well, I never," gasped the young
woman with the turquoise ring, help-
lessly. "Lovely girl! You weren't call-
ing her that a mouth ago!"
"I don't see why you talk this*way,"
protested the girl with the lace waist,
sadly. "I'm sure I've always felt
friendly toward Madge. I may have
said things occasionally that you have
misunderstood, but 1 am sure—"
"So am 1," snapped her friend. "The
time Harry took her to the dance in-
stead of asking you didn't you dis-
tinctly tell me that Madge had cross
eyes and was five years older than
she acknowledged? When Harry
spoke to you admiringly of her hair
didn't you tell him it was bleached?
Didn't you say you wouldn't play
bridge with her because she cheated?"
"If you're going to be disagreea*

"I'd hate to think that I could be
jealous and envious of anyone," sighed
the girl with the lace waist, sweetly.
"I'm always glad to see others happy,
I'm sure. I—"
'The very last time I saw you," pur-
sued the young woman with the tur-
quoise ring, remorselessly, "you al-
most cried while you were telling me
of Madge's latest atrocity. You said
she met you and Harry and stood talk-
ing to him for 15 minutes without ad-
dressing a word to wou. All the time,
you said, she was making such eyes
at him! You said if it wasn't just for
spiting her you'd let her have him,
that you didn't care anything about
him, anyway. Of course, I knew you
didn't mean that, for everyone is well
aware that you are crazy about him
"No more than he is about me," pro-
tested the girl with the lace waist,
sharply. "Harry couldn't help it if
Madge waylaid him and flirted with
him and made a goose of herself—"
"That sounds more natural," com-
mented the young woman with the
turquoise ring. "That's the way you've
been talking for weeks and weeks. I
knew that your sudden fondness for
Madge wasn't real—"
"Yes, it is," interrupted the girl
with the lace waist, relapsing into her
ilrst restrained sweet tone. "I've noth-
ing in the world against Madge. As I
have always said, she is a lovely girl.
If you grew to know her better you'd
think so yourself."
"Oh, I haven't anything personal
against Madge," declared the girl
with the turquoise ring. "Being a
friend of yours, I naturally adopted
your distinctly unpleasant view of

ed the girl with the lace waist. "And
it's unkind of you to try to make me
out a silly, suspicious, jealous—"

minedly, "honest now, what's Madge
done to get into your good graces like
