Paragraph one of the petition
recites that the parties to the
litigation were married in Cass
county, Nebraska, on the 25th day
of August, 1909. In the second
paragraph, plaintiff alleges in
substance that shortly after their
marriage the defendant became
quarrelsome and without pro
vocation on her part, controverted
with her over (rival affairs and
would frequently become angry on
the slightest excuse and would on
no provocation refuse to speak to
her. On one occasion, in March.
1911, defendant without any pro
vocation on part of plaintiff, told
her that "she did not have a bit
of sense," and from the date of
their marriage to the 10th day of
June, 1 1 4 1 , made her life nearly
On -or about the loih day of
June, recites the plaintiff in her
petition, the defendant, without
any excuse or provocation on her
part, willfully deserted the plain
tiff, telling her al the time that
he would never return to live with
petition in the district court, tle
defendant has contributed noth
ing toward the support or main
tenance of plaintiff, although he
was well able to do so.
For the above causes the plain
tiff was compelled to return to the
dwelling of her parents, where
she has been since the 10th day
of Juno, 1911, when the defend
ant deserted her and left tier
without means of support. At the
time of their marriage and since,
defendant was able to and did
earn $75 per month and was well
able to furnish suitable food,
clothing and maintenance for his
wife, and at the present time po
seses personal property of the
value of $1,000. Mrs. Young fur
ther states in her petition that
she has no moans with which to
prosecute her action, or to sup
port herself while the suit is
ponding. The, defendant has not
provided her with an moans of
support since the date he left,
and gave her nothing at that time
except the household furniture,
worlh about, 8150. She allege
that her maiden name was Lucile

MURRAY, NEBRASKA (
Surprise E. V. Colo and Wifo. j
Thursday evening was a repili- i
lion of Hie good j:i:is known In'
Lev, islouians, who have I n j
spending an occasional evening at j
the homes of friends and neigh-;
bors. This lime Mr. and Mrs.. Karl j
Cole were the pb asarl inlcrlniu-
Ors. II- was planned by .lames
Tigntr and !'!!'. rl Queen to sur
prise Mr. Cole (thinking it best
to let Mrs. Cole ii: the sccre't ' ,
but he was too wise for them,
having observed bow "the boys"
who were shelling corn for K. (i.
Lewis were nil gelling shaves and
hair cuts. . lie also noticed his
wife making 'extra preparations
about the homo and made in
quiries, but obtained no informa
tion, so he proceeded to do the
"tonsorial stunt" in order to bo
in line with the boys. The "sur
prise" was not complete, but that
did not arrest tho pleasure of the
evening, tor the entire company
voices the sentiments of the
writer when we say a more pleas
ant evening could not be spent.
Various games and amusements
were participated in by all pres
ent. The game paramount was
the old-lime chrades, the com
pany being divided into opposing
sides and each strove to score
more points than the other. Miss
Etta Nickels and Mrs. Frank Rho
den were captains of the com
panies, but owing to Mr. Hhodcn's
injury, sustained somo weeks ago,
they wero unablo to be with u",
whereby Mr. Queen took charge of
Mrs. Rhoden's artillerymen. The
writer happened to bo on the op
posite side, and, am sorroy to say,
was with the losing company, the
score being 11 to 6 in favor of
Mrs. Rhoden's line, cx-offlcio E. R.
Queen. At a convenient hour
dainty refreshments were served
by the hostess, assisted by several
ladies present, after which the
time, for deparluro soon arrived
and all went away feeling gratefu
to Mr. and Mrs. Cole for the
pleasant evening and kind hos
pitality shown them. Mr. nnd Mrs
Colo aro soon to move from our
midst, which is sorely regretted
by their many neighbors and
friends. We do hope they will
drop in and neip us surprise
the other fellow." Those present

A Slight Error.
Tho Journal has been apprised
of a slight error that we mado in
our last issue over tho quarrel
among the school boys over in the
Todd district. It seems as though
tho younger brother of Clarence
Fahnstock had been accused of
the damage to tho buildings
which he denied, and it ended in
the trouble. It has developed that
Clarence had taken no part in the
damage done to the buildings at
all, and was simply defending his
younger brother in the trouble.

of the melody had died away and
