                                          Varied Scenes in Court
                                         Room on “DIVORCE DAY”

                                                             The usual tales domestic woe
                                                           Were unfolded in common pleas
                                                           court Tuesday, when “DIVORCE
                                                           DAY” came.
                                                             “I did not care for him, I did not
                                                           like him any more, I believe it is a
                                                           sin for people to live together under
                                                           such circumstances, and so I left
                                                           my husband.” was the statement of
                                                           Mrs. Alice Barnett, of near Sciotoville,
                                                           when put on the witness stand as a 
                                                           witness n her husband’s suit for    
                                                           divorce. He had brought the suit on
                                                           the ground of willful absence.

                                                             They were married January 21, 1901,
                                                               (Miss Print was Jan. 31, 1891)
                                                           and have two children, Mary, 12,
                                                           and, Charlotte, 10.
                                                             According to the husband, his wife
                                                          became dissatisfied because he was
                                                          not earning enough to satisfy her,
                                                          and one day, four years ago in
                                                          September, while he was returning
                                                          from work at noon, he met her in the
                                                          road with her two children. He testified
                                                          she said she was tired of him and
                                                          was going back to her parents.
                                                            Since that time they have never lived
                                                          together, Mrs. Barnett supporting
                                                          herself and children by needle work.
                                                            Judge Milner closely questioned all the
                                                          witnesses to find evidence of collusion
                                                          on part of the principals, but it was
                                                          evidently simply a case of a mismated
                                                          pair and the decree was granted.
                                                            Husband, wife, his sister and the
                                                          witnesses left the court room in a group,
                                                          evidently disousging the affair.
                                                             Witness in the case were Mrs. Martin,
                                                          Mr. Elliot and Mrs. Stiles, who all gave
                                                          both husband and wife a good reputation.
                                                         Attorney J.S. Thomas represented Barnett.
