Judpe Woodruff Confronted with One
Hundred and One Divorce Cases.
Want TT Doabt Rtltllnc as to Final
Termination of Marital Coatro- .
Yeralea Other Ordera Art
Confronted by a divorce docket numbering-
101 cun, Judira Woodruff of tha dls
trVt c-urt bench astslled the task before
Lim early In. the t: m, and devoted near
)y all of yesterday, It second day, to con
deration of the stories of marital ml
fits. He did enough other business to
malts a respectable day'a work, but when
tha day closed ho had practically disposed
cf fourteen of tha divorco cases. There
' good grounds for tiie suspicion that
Jurlso Woodruff looked over the docket
and picked out the obey oni for hie first
essay In the tournament against Cupid, for
default were taken In all of tha case
where decrees were entered.
' In there canes divorces were granted and
tha decreet signed: .
. Lulu i Murphy yo. Charles Murphy; Wil
liam Sutherland vs. Edith Sutherland;
Jeesio H. Walker v. Roda Wallrer; Au
fusta Boone vs. Brady lioone; Elva B.
t'Lary vs. Thomas A O'Leary: Emma
Hart vs. Charles . Hart; Lottie Whllsott
Vs. Kiar.k Whilactt; Olive Petersen vs.
Jers lJcioren; Francf-s, Klrkpatrlck vs.
Vt'llilam K'.rkpatrlck: T'.iomas J. Hatch vs.
Mollie Hatch; Emma Hurt vs. Charles
Hart: Haul) Mochn vs. Frank Mochn.
The evidence In two other default co.-es
was taken and submitted and the cases
taken under advisement.' They were Lucy
E. Calklna vs. John J. Calkins and Car
rie B. Wlncht'll vs. Adalbert Winchell.
' Seven Folly Divorced,
v. Whllo twelve decrees weve signed there
were only seven of the couples fully
granted their freedom. A rulo or me
courts, adopted several years, does not
permit divorce decrees to be entered upon
tha records until all of. the costs in the
case have been paid. The only evidence of
the granting of the divorces until the rec
ord Is written up is the notation In pencil
on the . Judges' duckets. In a number of
case parties securing divorce have
neglected to see to this Important part of
tha court transactions arid have gone away
happy in the thought of their freedom to
discover with great dismay several months
or years afterward that they were still
undlvorced. Eeven of the plaintiffs yester
day hurried, into Clerk Brown's office Im
mediately after the decree was granted and
paid all costs, anxiously Inquiring if there
might not be some other hidden danger
lurking In their pathway to freedom.
Mabrar Cases Up teos.
Judge Smith McPherson will convene the
September term of the federal court next
Monday, when another doien or sixteen of
tha Matoray cases will be tried. The
greater part of them, however, will bo the
suits of some of tho "Mikes" against local
men, whore they allege, failed properly to
protect them, when they camo here and
got their drafts cashed to win the money
of the reputed Pittsburg . millionaire.
Judge McPherson ordered a special venire
of petit Juror drawn for the purpose of
Insuring a sufficient number to try these

Considerably Heavier Tale Year tha
for Sam Period Ooo
Year Aico,
Real estate transfers for the month of
August this year were considerably heavlor
than for the same period last year. The
total for the month as reported by the
Pottawattamie County Abstract company
were 161 transfers, representing financial
transactions amounting to 1229,224.78. For
the month of August last year there were
134 tranfers representing total considera
tions of SiSl,tC4.&3. There wo a greater
movement of city property during August
this year than a year ago, although a ma
jority of the heavier transactions continued
to b confined to farm property. In sev
eral Instances prices of farm property
broke all record for this part of the
state with tho exception of tho hysterical
condition worked up in the land market
two years ago, when agents for Edward
Harriman were buying up a fevr hundred
acre of farm land south of Council Bluffs
to be used In connection with the 12.500,000
terminal facilities then planned, when 1.150
an acre was paid for some tract. Fol

Tuesday evening he served a customer to

piece in the same pocket with the small
