Address.
HER AGE JUMPS IN
DAY FROM 30 TO 57
Maud Marshall and Under
taker Add Jollity to Van
Ness Will Contest.
'The age of Miss Maud Marshall,
which Jumped so suddenly on Wednes
day In the Van Ness will contest that It
caused her to faint, yesterday went up
twelve points In a steadily rising mar
ket.
Though Miss Marshall, a niece of the
lata Mrs. Mary U Van Ness, had hest
tated on the day preceding about saying
she was 30 years old, and had to have
restoratives on being led by attorneys
to the 45 year mark, once she had passed
that milestone she seemed to gather
courage and momentum. She calmly
faced the world, represented by Surro
gate Cohalan and the contestants, and
said that now she had come to think
It over she concluded she was 67.
When recalled to the stand yesterday
by T, Channon Press, attorney for those
upholding the will, she Indicated that,
though the subject was distasteful to
her, she would try to bear up bravely,
Asked If she wished to revise her esti
mate of her age, she said:
"Yes. I've found out I'm about 57."
A medical diagnosis of such reluctance.
probably the first ever given In the his
tory of the courts, was made by Dr.
Merrltt W. Barnum, a physician who at
tended Mrs. Van Ness about the time
she made her will, after he had testified
that the hardening of the arteries,
chronic rheumatism and chronic Iruscl'
blllty of the old woman, mentioned as
a ninety-one year old fox trotter, led
htm to believe she had senile dementia.
"Doctor," he was asked by Mr. I'ress,
"If a woman told you she was thirty
years old and a few minutes later said
she was forty-five, ana tne next aay
sald she was fifty-seven, how would you
describe her condition?"
"I would describe It," said the physi
cian thoughtfully, "as one of temporary
confusion."
The Jollity of the occasion for the
SDectators. that Is was further en
hanced when Theodore E. Senior, nji
elderly undertaker, entered court tardily
and waa called by Surrogate Cohlan
"the lata Mr. Senior." Senior, who had
chara-a of the burial of Mrs. Van Ness,
told of one of his visits at which she
tried to entertain htm with a dancing
exhibition and added:
"Shs said to me, 'Dearie, how old do
vou think I amr X replied, 'Oh, about
sixty.' Then shs said, 'Oh, no, I'm
reallr about fifteen.' "
Lulu Johnson, a negro maid, told of
soma "queer goln'J on" In the home of
Mrs. Van Ness, who left an estate of
IMO.OOO. Among them she Instanced
Mn. Van Ness's whims to have Imag
Inary persons ejected, and ber fancies
that she saw "heaas on me qnanaeuer.

Henrv A. Wise Wood made a brief ad

navy In the world for the United States.
Ills remarks were made in introducing
this resolution, which was adopted
unanimously :
itesolved. That the navy committee or
the National Security League be re
quested to prepared a report showing

the navy toward preparedness, and to
advise the Iwst means of civilian co
operation with the navy to Insure the
greatest possible celerity In carrying out
the navy's plans."
I
Drams a Lesson Front Europe.
Mr. Coudert who made the principal
address, related experiences on a recent
visit to the war front In France, and
drew from his observations a lesson on
the folly of unpreparcdness In America.
We do not hesltnte to change govern
ments In 8anto Domingo and Haytl."
said Mr. Coudert, "but we announce to
the world that Mexico must be allowed
to work out Its own destiny, nlthough
this Involves hideous and endless an
archy. We would have taken Villa If
we had had a single automobile to go
after him.
'Our people appear to Ignore the rela
tion between armament and policy
Every nation must have some policy. No
policy Is a policy. No policy means
mere opportunism and opportunism may.
when long repeated, become a policy, it
Is often the most dangerous or all
policies, because, resting on no basis,
It can make appeal to no general senti
ment."
At the beginning of the war, said
Mr. Coudert. Franco had a great army
based on general service. Great Britain
depended largely on a navy which. It be
lieved, controlled the oceans. It has since
built up nn effective army, "but It has re
quired two years or concentrated na
tlonal effort"
Great Britain had allies and could
gain time." continued Mr. Coudert. "The
United States on the other hand Is Iso
lated and almost friendless In the world
of nations. It Is difficult not to be dls
couraged regarding our situation. It l
evident that tho only solution of our
problem Is general service. Certainly
never since the civil war has the United
States been In such danger of war with
a foreign Power as It Is to-day.

Pl.iywrlghts' and press agents' day
waM observed yesterday at the trial of
tho $:00,000 libel suit which Magistrate
Joseph K. Oorrlgan Is bringing against
the IIoblis-Merrlll Company for publish
ing a novel by George Bronson Howard,
entitled "God's Man," which the Magis
trate maintains has passages character
izing hlm as the reverse of the title.
The two press agents testified before
Supreme Court Justice Goff that the
novelist believed Magistrate Corrlgan
held him for trial In order to "steal"
from him Theodora Gerard, the young
actress, who caused his arrest In 1909,
when Howard was too rough In trying
to Induce her to return Jewelry which he
had given her.
Magistrate Corrlgan, recalled to the
stand, denied Howard's reported Insinua
tions, declaring that before the actress's
appearance In Jefferson Market court he
had been Introduced to her and she had
said, "How do you dor' but that the ac
nualntancc began l.iul ended there. He
thought he might l ave seen ner lateral

was Benihardt's refrain, so Francis
averred. Bernhardt added, Francis said,
that "the publicity we will get will ad
vertise the book." Francis continued In
a casual sort of way that another book
discussed was n proposed history of the
Tenderloin by himself, and Justice Goff
allowed this advance notlco to get Into

W. J. Klngsley on Bland.
Walter J. Ktngsley. publicity man for
the B. F. Keith vaudevlllo circuit, was
summoned by Attorney Arnold, and re
luted how Bernhardt had n-sked hlm
prior to the publication of "God's Man"
to publish a review of It and do all ho
I'ould to help Its sale In the roaring For
llcs. He said ho commented thus to
Bernhardt :
"This book Is the result of the bitter
feud between Howard and Judgo Cor
rlgan, due to Howard's belief that How
nrd's girl had been stolen from hlm as
a result of a fratueup In which Judge
Corrlgan had a part."
Hernhardt replied, according to Kings
ley, that he knew that, but ho felt that
Howard was "enough of a literary artist
lu get away with It." Wilson Mlzner,
the playwright, who collaborated with
Howard on two dramas, took the stand,
but as most of Arnold's questions to him
were ruiea out he played mainly a think
ing part. Almost his only contribution
lo the case was Ills reply as to whether
ho had read the novel. Made with basso
profundo emphasis. It was: "I have not."
Magistrate Corrlgan then mado an
other of his frequent trips to the (stand
nnd listened while Arnold read him ex
tracts from tho book In which Magis
trate Cornlgan was pictured ns n regular
llxture at "Joints," particularly 'the
Kid's," where he was seen taking care
of some "sporting girls."
Magistrate Cornlgan was represented
to havo had "Ulllle's" place raided In or
der that he might substltuto us a com
forter for "UHllc's girl," whom the hook
magistrate felt ought to llko him better.
The magistrate said he had visited a
place run by Kid McCoy, the prize
lighter, but It was with men friends and
done for reasons of duty ho was writing
mi exposure of police maladministration
at the time. The only place hs ever
had folded, he said, was not run by a
man named "Blllle," but was on West
Twenty-second street. Ho had broken It
up, he said, bsyause It was frequented
by persons who were better suited for
the workhouse.
Objection waa made by Attorney
!.ockrood to having tho magistrate de
tail what happened when Howard was
urralgtied before him on August 22,
190?, and Magistrate Corrlgan was not
allowed to show how well ho could
qualify as a reporter. He did tell, how
ever, of Theodora Gerard's brief flitting
throimh his existence. Hn stated that
though Attorney Lockwood offered to
mako public ajiology for tho novel after
Us publication no retraction was ever
printed.
The case continues to-day.

When You Spend $20 for a
Saks Suit or
a Saks Overcoat
you are also buying $20 worth, which
is a distinction worth remembering!
l A buyer for a big house, such as Saks',
for example, is or ought to be a man
who is competent to get the best mer
chandise the market affords for the least
expenditure of his employer's money. The
average buyer gets the same values as
everybody else gets. The good buyer gets
something a little better.
q You, as a buyer for yourself, are either
average or good. Either you just spend
money, or you get something for it. Now
it is one thing to lay out $20 in money and
another to lay in $20 in merchandise, but
both are embraced in one operation atSaks'.
JWe make our own $20 clothes, which
means that we can put into the making
and styling the money which, in other
clothes, must be used to support the
middlemen.
Think it over-better still,
look them over and judge for yourself.
