WARJ, saw fit to place me before the public In a fal t light and to accuse me of bad f alt] with and broken promiRAs to my husband. The fact that the article contains no mfor directly from Mr. Ward or myself must prove that It is made up simply from goaiip and invention.

I, this cos reporter did not obtain an Interview with afr. Ward, for I am certain Mr. War< would never have allowed such an unde- served accusation to be bronght against me.
