      The Dispatch Was Not Sent

      Nevertheless It Figured in a Divorce
      Case Brought by Mrs. Sackett.

      How a man can get into trouble by means
      of a telegram that was never sent was
      strikingly illustrated yesterday in the trial
      of a divorce suit brought by Mrs. Anna W.
      Sackett against James W. Sackett in the
      Superior Court.
      Mr. And Mrs. Sackett separated in 1891,
      and Mrs. Sackett emploued H. H. Brown, a
      lawyer of 114 Nassau Street, to secure evi-
      dence that would give her a divorce.
      On April 24 of this year Lawyer Brown
      saw Mr. Sackett enter a telegraph office on
      Broadway. Looking through a window he
      saw him write a dispatch, which was evi-
      dently not satisfactory. At any rate, it
      was crumpled up and thrown on the floor.
      Then another was written and sent.
      As soon as Sackett had left the office
      Brown picked up the crumpled dispatch.
      Unfolding it, he read:
      Mrs. Anna Marsden, Plainville, Conn.:
      Meet me to-morrow at 4 o'clock for a two
      or three days' stay
      «tab»«tab»James W. Sackett
      Next day Brown and a detective saw
      Sackett meet a stylishly-dressed woman at
      the Grand Central Station. They followed
      thm to a hotel on Broadway.
      The lawyer yesterday told his story in the
      witness chair to Judge Freedman, who re-
      served decision. Sackett was in court and
      listened to the testimony, but he put in no
      defense.
