A TOUGH CASE.
Her Place Usurped by Another and
She Is Compelled to
On a farm some fifteen miles from
Lincoln and not many miles dis
tant from Flagle, there is at present
living a man whose household skel
eton is not made known to the pub
lic, and who is daily violating all
the laws of morality besides break
ing the laws of the land. Not quite
two years ago this man's wife was
declared insane and taken to the
The man whose name it is not
necessary at this time to give to
the public, procured the services of
a rather good looking young
woman to act as housekeeper while
the poor wife, whose wrecked and
clouded brain was gradually being
cleared of the mists which hung
over itt caused by hard werk and
the hard usage of the man who had
sworn to protect her, the younger
woman and housekeeper had sup
planted her place, and occupied the
bed that was hers, to all intents and
purposes the man's wife. So mat
ters ran until a short time ago the
lawful wife was pronounced cured
and released to go back and resume
the old place in her husband's heart
and with her loved ones again.
Whether it was because the poor
woman's brain has become so weak
ened hy her long illness and con
finement, to such an extent as to
render her obtuse to the condition
of affairs, is not known, but at the
present time the wife and the
woman who has been in her place,
are both living together with this
man in open violation of all laws
of decency. Some of the neighbors
have been disposed to make the
matter public, but so far nothing
has been done, and the Call's ac
count will probably' be the first
open statement. How much longer
this shameful condition of affairs
will be hushed up in a christian
community is a pertinent quero.
