SISTER
AGAINST
SISTER
"Blood it not thicker than
water."
Mr*. Agnet Moon, 22, did not ute
theie word* In Judge Albertton'e
courtroom. But ahe gave them life
and reality.
She breathed venom and hatred,
ahot her moat polaonoua looks, and
all but pinned a letter of acarlet
upon the breaat of her own titter,
beautiful Mrt. Clara Grott, and
practically repudiated her own
mother, Mra. George Sandt, 7329
11th av. N. W.
Mrs. Moon testified against her
prettier sister, Mr*. Gross, who
wan sued for divorce by Charles
Gross, an iron worker, on ground*
of Incompatibility. Mrs. Gross la
mother of two children, 5 and 2.
"Why, that very suit she s wear
ing now," sneered Mrs Moon, point
ing at Mrs. Gross, "was sent her
by a strange man through the par
cel post."
.Mrs. Hands, the mother. »ai
thunderstruck. She whispered to
Jay C. AilPn. attorney for Mra.
Gross.
"Why, Mra. Moon." said Allen,
"you know your mother and father
bought that suit for tier."
Mrs. Moon failed to make any
reply.
"You know your mother here, do
you Dot'" continued Allen.
Mrs. Moon, without looking up,
sharply replied:
"No. I don't know."
During the two days of the trial,
Mrs. Moon sat with Mrs E Casst
dy. slater of Charleß Gross, the hus
band. She haa fronted the witness
stand, casting sneers and defiant
j looks of hatred at her sister.
Once, Judge Albertson had to
caution Mrs. Moon and Mrs. Oas
sldy to check their overeager dis
play of feeling against Mra. Gross.
Teatlfylng in behalf of Mrs.
Gross, her daughter. Mrs. Sands,
the mother, told the court that Mrs.
Moon, her other daughter, had run
away from home when she was 15,
: ind had been gone a long time.
• since then, the gIH has been twice
| married, and twice separated. She
has refused to lire with her par
ents. Mrs. Sands testified, and la
1 now living at the St. Lawrence
hotel.
Taking the stand In her own be
half. Mrs. Gross described the In
tense Jealousy which her husband
displayed. She detailed how many
foolish quarrels arose over trifling
matters.
"I was young when I married
him. I was 16," she said. "I was
alwaya happy and cheerful. He ac
quired a moroae disposition. While
he would permit me to go to
dancea, promising to take me to
them, he Invariably changed hi*
mind at the iaat minute. The same
happened with theatrea, or when
we planned to go to Luna park, or
any other place. When I went with
other women to places of amuse
ment. he would upbraid me and tay
that I cared for them more than for
him.
"Thla finally culminated In a
shameful accusation tast March
and we forever aeparated."
Gross accused his wife of having
stayed at the Hotel Frye over night
with a man named "G. VT. Norton."
The hotel register was produced in
court, showing "G. \V. Norton and
wife." According to Gross, this
Norton I* a dining room conductor
who traveled with Mrs Gross,
when the latter was returning from
a visit in North Dakota Gross said
Mrs. Gross told him about Norton
and had often referred to him as
"George."
Mrs. Gross flatly denied the ac
cusation of her husband, declaring
emphatically that she had not seen
him nt any time from the day she
had left the train at the King st.
station.
"I always told my husband every
thing," she said, on the verge of
tears "And I told him about this
Mr. Norton, who was kind to the
children and to me all the way to
Seattle, as he was kind to others,
too."
According to Gross. Mrs.
telephoned him one day that sh«
was nt the Frye hotel and asked
him to come down later In the nft
ernoon. He came down earlier
than the hour appointed, he said,
and he saw Mrs. Gross leave the
hotel with a strange man. They
went to a cafe, he said.
Judge Albertson took the case
under advisement and will make a
decision Monday.
