I rise to protest agianst the laxity of
our divorce laws. As they now are a
judge who is so minded can grant a
divorce upon the very flimsiest of
grounds. For instance , we attended a
divorce case recently .which took about
fifteen minutas to hear and decide , and
the plaintiff secured his decree upon
the ground of "incompatability , " the
most unreasonable excuse in the world.
The couple were married only a few
months , and no evidence was adduced
to show that anything hsd been done
to reconcile the differences of tempera
ment. In another case a woman en
tirely unknown to court , attorneys or
spectators obtained her coveted freedom
by merely saying she had been deserted.
When the marriage vow is treated so
lightly , is it any wonder that the number
of unhappy marriages is increasing so
rapidly ? I have always been taught ,
"What God : * ath joined together , let
no man put asunder , " yet our courts
violate the injunction every dav. Why
do not our religious organizations take
more interest in this matter':1
News and Notes Some Visitors at the
Bar of Justice.
District court convened here Monday -
day with Judge Kinkaid upon the
bench. This is the judge's last term
of court-in this countv , and he made
seveial breaks regarding what he
would allow at the next termand , had
to retract them.
The first jury case was that of State
vs. Charles Bailey , and was tried
Tuesday , occupying the entire da- .
According to the evidence , the de
fendant while riding tne range with
G. W. Ladely , living in the southwest
part of the countyassisted in cutting
out an unbranded calf , which later
was sold to Bob Gillaspie , then to a
man named Zimmerman , and was
later discovered and claimed by D. C.
Nelson , the owner , and found to have
on it that gentleman's brand. Bailey ,
who is a negro , claims that Ladely
gave him the calf , but that worthy
was not in court to substantiate the
story , although subpoenaed as a wit
ness. Taken all in all , the testimony
showed that Ladely was as guilty if
not more so than the prisoner. The
case was worked up by Ed Blakeyand
it is said that this is only a beginning.
In his argument , John Tucker , attor
ney for the defense , said the negro
was but a catspaw.
LATER Bailey pleads guilty to the
charge against himand will probably
receive a short term in the peniten
Yesterday morning the case of
State vs. Reese was calledand the de
fendant pleaded guilty to having
raped Hanna Peterson , a fourteen
year old girl living on the Niobrara ,
south of town. Accordsng to the
evidence the defendant , Frank G.
Reese , committed the crime a couple
of months ago , and at the preliminary
he pleaded not guiltv. It is the con
sensus of opinion that Reese saved
himself about five years hard labor by
his plea , the judge sentencing him to
five years in the pen.

Last Monday morning several men
assembled at the building recently pur
chased by R. Grooms and by evening
the same was on wheels ready to start
Tuesday. Still more men came , fifteen
in all , and started homeward. When
about a half mile from the start an ac
cident occurred which finished the pro
gress for that day. Wednesday morn
ing at daylight the same number began
the work for the third day , and about
3 o'clock in the afternoon the building
was landed in its place amid the cheers
of all present. Work of unloading
was begun and the building was soon
on blocks. A little after sundown C.C.
Thompson arrived on the scene with an
organ and two violins , and later the
ladies j of the neighborhood began to ar
rive and soon all were engaged in a
merry dance. Atmidnight supper was
served by the hostess , assisted by Mrs j
C. C. Thompson , Mrs. J. A. Adamson
and Miss Eda Marks. At daylight the
merrymaking subsided and all went to
their respective homes. Mr. Grooms
will now finish his new home by adding
a'kitchen 12x12 , and will plaster and
move in as soon as possible. UAD BOY.

Wednesday , the loth inst. , to perform
a marriage ceremony. We have for
gotten the parties' names ; but what we
wanted to say was , there was not a
man , woman or child in the sleepy old
town of Cody that knew anything
about it except those at the house where
the ceremony was performed. The
groom was from Valentine and the
bride was a Cody lady. SANDY.
Mrs. Angie Ford gave an entertain
ment at the school house in Distnct 49
last Saturday night. Her scholars car
ried their parts well and showed care
ful training. After the entertainment
was over the people brought in baskets ,
boxes and jugs : the former filled with
averything go d to eat and the latter
filled with milk and water. Twenty-
live cents a couple was charged for sup
per , the proceeds going toward furnish
ing a Christmas tree. We may be mis
taken , . .but we believe 13. Hunt , O. Star
and Jess Gorner can eat more than any
other three men in Cherry county.
