CHARGED WITH POISONING
WIFE AND' NEIGHBORS
Washington, Ga.,-June 19.-Dr.
Saggus was arrested and placed in
jail here late today pending a pre
liminary hearing on charges of hav
ing poisoned his first wife and his
present wife'e first husband, Charles
Wilbanks.
The physician came from his
home at Harlem, near here and
surrendered when he heard that a
coroners jury had returned a ver
dict this morning charging him with
the deaths of the couple, which was
followed by the issuance of murder
warrants. Arrangements were made
to exhume both bodies.
Physicians testified that the symp
tons of both the first Mrs. Saggus and
Wilbanks, indicated poisoning al
though they could not be positive of
the cause of their deaths and letters
were introduced designed to show im
proper relations between Dr. Saggus
and his present wife before the death
of Wilbanks.
Dr. Saggus aserted that his first
wife, who was Miss Mary Walker,
of Barnett, Ga., died November 23,
1921, of neuralgia of the heart, and
that Wilbanks, who succumbed Feb
ruary 3, last, died after suffering sev
eral months with asthma for which
Dr. Saggus had been giving him hy
podermie injections. The present
present Mrs. Saggus told newspaper
men she believed her husband the vic
tim of a "frame up" on the part of
enemies.
Witnesses testified at the inquest
today that Dr. Saggus carried $5,000
insurance on the life of his first
wife and the Wilbanks, had a $1,000
policy in favor of the present Mrs.
Saggus. There also was testimony
to the effect that Dr. Saggus col
lected $3.500 fire insurance when his
home was burned shortly after the
death of his first wife.
Mrs. Saggus who is thirty years
old, said today that she and her
first husband were neighbors of Dr.
Saggus and his wife, and that the
two couples were friends. She said
she had married Dr. Saggus in Au
gusta in April. The present Mrs.
Saggus was formerly Miss Corrie
Johnson, of Rome, Ga., and prior
to her marriage to Wilbanks, had
been matron at the Decatur, Ga., or
pha nage.

DODGE BROTHERS
BUILD NEW COUPE
Closed Car For Business Men Is Dis
tinct Achievement In Automo
tive Field.
First With All Steel Body-Other
Cars Have New Body Design.
Behind the simple phraseology of an
announcement which Dodge Brothers,
Detroit automobile manufacturers,
are publishing today in every import
ant city and town in America, lies the
story of a new achievement in automo
bile development. "Dodge Brothers
announce a business coupe; conserva
tive in the body design of all other
types," the advertisement reads.
The business coupe is the first t -
steel closed car ever marketed. n
this respect it takes a new and dis
tinct place in automotive history, for
it involves an entirely unique principle
of coupe body construction. The steel
body not only practically eliminates
the problem of limited production,
clue to the tedious and costly individ
ual worknanship required on wood
bodies, but also enables the manufac
turers to give the coupe the same lus
trous baked enamel finish which has
already contributed so much to the
reputation of Dodge Brothers open
cars. This process in itself will also
facilitate quantity production, as an
enormous amount of time was con
sumed heretofore in applying the nu
merous coats of paint required on
wood.
Naturally, these are important fac
tors in the determination of the sell
ing price, resulting in economies
which Dodge Brothers are passing di
reetly to the purchaser. "Wood is
practically eliminated from the con
struction of this car," said Harvin
Motor Co., the local dealer. "Even
the frameworc and panels are of steel
and the natural result is a lighter,
quieter and more durable car. Steel
prolongs life and reduces the possib
ility of squeaks and rattles.
"The business men of America have
been expecting such a coupe and
Dodge Brothers have biven it to
them.
"It is in reality a coupe at a roads
ter price. While it is easily attrac
tive enough for any use, it is par
ticularly designed for the business
man--who needs the comfort and pro
tection of a closed car in his work,
but who can easily get along with
(lut a few of the luxuries which, in
the past, have made the closed car
so expensive. The business coupe is
built inside and out to withstand the
wear and tear of every (lay use-and
vet it retains the same lightness and
beauty of line which everyone is ac
'ustomed to look for in Dodge Bro
her's closed cars. It lacks only what
might term the depreciation liabili
ies of the more expensive coupe. It
s upholstered in genuine leather, has
I wide, com fortable straight seat, is
1cinippedl with cord tires, heater, dome
ight, windshield cleaner andc adjust
