ly before noon today.

the parties was the defendant col
ored and of colored blood"
"Did the defendant before the
marriage bv silence conceal from
the plaintiff the fact that she was
of colored blood?"
'Did the defendant before the
marriage represent to the plaintiff
that she was not of colored blood ?"
"Did the defendant practice said
concealment or make said repre

to Induce the plaintiff to marry
"Was the plaintiff by said con
