SILENT WOMAN MYSTIFIES.

Marie Moore Hasn't Spoken Since Be-
ing Locked in a Cell.

Marie Moore, the sphinx of the federal court, retired early last evening to her cot in the county jail, and when she was asked where she lived and who her father was, she pulled the covers over her head, but never said a word.

Marie was taken before United States Commissioner John M. Nuckols Thursday after her arrest in the postoffice to answer to a charge of sending an improper letter through the mails to another girl. She refused to plead guilty or not guilty and would not answer the commissioner's questions. Saturday she was indicted by the federal grand jury on the same charge, and when arraigned before Judge John C. Pollock again refused to talk. She finally stammered, "I am innocent," but declined to state whether she had an attorney or not or to tell her address or the names of friends.

Since her incarceration in the county jail Thursday no one has called to see her an d she has not spoken one word to the jailers.

"She'll talk in a few days," Night Jailer Sam McGee remarked. "They all do in time. She isn't insane, because she eats her meals and acts like any other woman. She's just got her dander up, that's all.

"I judge from looking at her that she is a city bred girl and known too much to try and pay street car fare with postage stamps."
