HE WANTED A WIFE, BUT DIDN'T CARE" FOR THE
FOUR CHILDREN TO BE THROWN IN
Especially When All the Kids Had "Appefetes Like Horses.
Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 19. A
' ta.ll, dark haired man, evidently
excited, walked into the district
court here this morning. .
"Where do I get it an injunc-
.K& tion?" he asked the clerk.
"Here," said , the clerk, "if
you've got a good reason."
"I got it a good reason,"" said
the dark man. "If four children
ain't a good reason, I'd like to
know what is ? Four children all
with appetites like horses already
"Whom d'you want to enjoin?"
asked the clerk.
MMinika Kazmiercz," said the
"I guess so," said the clerk.
"What is it a patent medicine?"
"Ain't I just telling you it's a
woman?" demanded the dark
man. "A woman without heart
or self respect."
"What d'you want to enjoin
Minnie from doing?" asked the
"From marrying me," said the
l dark man.
"From what?" exclaimed the
clerk, wondering if he were
"Marrying me. I said it, didn't
I?" asked the dark man, who
,?0 seemed to be getting more ex
cited. "What's she want to marry you
C for?" asked the clerk.
. . "Because I asked her."
J "What d'you want to renig on
the lady for then?" demanded the
"Renig, it it?" shouted the
stranger. "Renig not. For why
didn't she tell me she had four
children? For why didn't she
tell me that? Is it the conduct
of a lady to work a man up to
proposing to her an' then spring
four children, all of which has
appetites worse thn horses, on
him? It's worse than stabbing
in the back, an' I want a injunc
tion." "When did you find out about
the children?" asked the clerk.
"N6t till I was tied up good an'
tight, with her having all the evi
dence for a first class breach of
promise case, which she says
she'll make it, too." said the dark
The clerk explained that there
was no precedent on which the in
junction could be issued.
"What do I care about presi
dents?" demanded the dark man.
"Ain't I a taxpayer? Ain't I got
it a right to protection ? Ain't I
got no rights ?"
"You get out of here," said the .
clerk, getting mad himself.
The dark man, whose name has
been fpund to be Slaw Orlikwiski,
which perhaps explains, left the
courthouse, muttering darkly,
about his "rights."
He went directly to the home of
Mrs. Minika Kazmiercz. and
when that lady opened the door,
he folded his arms.
