DECREE TO EDHOLM; ALIMONY
Husband Ordered to Pay Wife
FIFTY MONTH TO DAUGHTER
Custody of Daughter Daring Greater
Portion of Time Goea to Mother
Tliomth She Is to Visit
A decree of divorce from Mrs. Katherlne
R. J, Bdholm, prominent society and club
woman, was given to Albert Bdholm,
Mrs. Bdholm to receive- 123,000 alimony
and $00 per month for support of their
daughter until she Is 18 years of age.
Custody of minor daughter awarded to
Daughter to spend every other Satur
day afternoon and every other Sunday
with her father and cither parent to bo
free to tako tho child to his or her
Mrs. Bdholm to have all personal prop
erty with exception of his personal ef
fects. Court costs and her own attorneys'
fees to bo paid .by Mrs. Bdholm.
Theso wcro tho findings of District
Judge Sutton in a decision rendered yes-
torday afternoon ot trio Edholm divorco
case, a suit which had occupied tho at
tention of the court for many wcoks. A
number of Important Issues were in
volved In tho case, among which In addi
tion to the decreo and tho property rights
Involved was tho veracity under oath ot
Mr. Edholm, who was accused by Attor
ney Clinton Bromo of "lying." Judge
Sutton said he believed Mr. Edholm's tes
timony, but that he had not considered
hcr's so valuable on account of a tendency
on her part to quibble.
"Decision of a divorce case," said Judge
Sutton, is ono of the most disagreeable
tasks whteh the courts encounter becauso
it is necessary to pass on tho motives
and actions of persons In their homo llfo.
I am glad, however, that in this case
there are no charges of immorality.
"One noticeable featuro about the mar
ried life of Mr. and Mrs. Bdholm is that
at all times he was overshadowed by her
and had "little to do with deciding ques
tions which might arise In the household.
That fact has been taken ltito consider
ation. "Mrs, Bdholm failed to substantiate her
charge that her husband had failed to
allow her enough mory for the support
of the household. According to the evi
dence ho spent in this manner from 12,300
to $2,400 a year. Refusal by a man to
spend all his wife wants him to does not
constitute cruelty so long as ho expends
enough to maintain his family in comfort
in their proper station in life.
"The defendant alleged as a specific
act of cruelty that tho plaintiff did not
apologiio to her for breaking a bottlo of
bayrum. The court is of tho opinion
that he need not apologize for breaking
a fragile article In the household any
more than she need apologise to him It
sho happen tobrcakr'a dish- The ,?olttf is
amo or the opinion that Mr. Bdholm's
assortion to his daughter that she should
not think she was sick was not cruelty
on his part. Tho statement was a part
of his religion and is not an uncommon
plea in tho sick room in 'any case.
Wife's Actions Crncl.
"The plaintiff alleges that tho defend
ant has been guilty of cruelty in the
manner In which she has dealt with
Christian Science, which he has adopted
as his religion. There is ample evidence
that she encouraged him to take up
Christian Science and her actions in de
stroying and marking up his books and
publications, and In ridiculing his re
ligion appear to the court to constitute
"With regard to Mr, Edholm's evidenco
concerning personal attacks alleged to
have been made upon him by his wlfo,
his testimony made a strong impression
on tho court, while hers is not consid
ered so valuable because of her tendoncy
to quibble, as when sho said she might
have kicked or struck him, but only in
fun or plsy.
"Mrs. Hlbbard, the mold, an excellent
witness for tho defense, testified, how
ever, on cross-examination that the only
occasion on which she heard the plaintiff
or defendant speak above on ordinary
tone of voice was when she heard Mr.
Bdholm say, 'Don't kick me any morel'
after she had hurried angrily upstairs.
It seems to the court that his charge of
cruelty was sustained by the plaintiff."
Judgo Sutton estimated that Mr. Bd
holm was worth $110,000, fixing the value
ot his store if it were to be sold imme
diately 'for cash at $15,000 and that of
his other property at $65,000.
Following the decision attorneys for
Mrs. Bdholm asked the court to alloty
the customary for,ty days for preparations
for an appeal. It was said, howover,
that it was not certain that an appeal
would be taken.

PIERRE, S. D., March 24. (Special.)
Over $10,000 clear profit for less than a
year of operation is tho report of the
citizen's commltteo of Sisseton, which
has charge of the financial management
of the only saloon allowed in the place.
When the town voted wet lost spring
after several years of "drouth" the man
ner of handling the traffio was turned
over to a committee, which hired a man
ager for the-saloon allowed, paying him
a salary of $1,800 a year and hiring all
help needed. All surplus funds wero to
bo equally divided between the funds of
the municipality and a special good roads
fund, and each has Just received $4,000,
the balance being held as an operating
fund. With no expense ot fitting up for
business, and initial purchase of stock
for the next year, the managers estimate

by merchants paying their estimated ex
penses for calendars into a road fund,
and that movement has kept to the front
from that time on, which Is the basis
for paying half the saloon profits Into
