BRADY IS SUED AND SOME
STARTLERS ARE EXPECTED
The suit of Mary Quinlan Kuhns
Brady against James H. Brady, state
auditor, promises to shed some queer
sidelights on the interesting game of
The lady with the several names is
suing Brady for breach of promise
and wants $50,000. For a long time
she was supposed to be the wife of
Brady. But, though they were le
gally married, they discovered they
had hitched up too soon after her di
wrce from Chas. O. Kuhns.
They separated last November. He
promised they would marry again in
May, when the required year's time
between divorce and remarriage was
up. But he didn't. Hence the suit.
Mrs. Brady says Brady has his sis
ter on the state pay roll as bank ex
aminer at $300 a month, but that she
really does no work.
She also says two other of his rela
tives are on the state pay roll.
Mrs. Brady has engaged Chas, E.
Erbstein as attorney, and he says
there will be some important develop
ments. P. S. (tip to politicians) Mrs.
Brady says James J. announced to
her that he was Roger Sullivan's
choice for governor at next election.
