Woman Will Return To First Husband

Grand Jury Returns Not True Bill in Polygamy Charge; to Annul Second Marriage.

Helen Toews, 20 years ago, will return to her first husband as the result of the action of the grand jury yesterday in returning a not true bill in her case on a charge of polygamy. She was married some years ago to Paul Wittcke and left him when they quarreled. He told her he would get a divorce and she, thinking he had done so, married George Deal.

Wittcke appeared in her behalf before the grand jury and said that he was willing to take her home again and receive her as though nothing had happened. She promised to have her marriage to Deal annulled, as it is illegal.
