DOMESTIC RELATIONS COURT BRINGS OUT
THE UPS AND DOWNS OF LIFE
Gol ding it! Anybody knows the ice
chest isn't the place for the washing
that is still in a state of well, that
hasn't yet been washed.
But that was just one of the things
that drove him to drink, according to
the tale Edward Ryan told Judge
Newcomer in the court of domestic
relations.
"I admit I do and have gone on
jags," said Ryan-, after Ass't State's
Att'y Rosinia had brought this out
as the cause of Mrs. Ryan not want
ing to live with Ryan any more and
having him arrested for disorderly
conduct
"But," continued Ryan, "I ask you,
is it a wonder? I work hard at my
trade and I want to come home to a
neat home, with my supper steaming
on the table and my wife sweet and
neat waiting to greet me.
"What do I get? I always have
to hang around an hour or so before
anything is cooked and often she is
not even home in that tinie and the
house is not tidy. I found the icebox
full of unwashed clothes and I took
them down in the basement and set
my foot down on that sort of thing.
But," he sighed, "there are others.
For one whole year I never drank a
drop. But she drove me to it again."
" 'Tis not true," said Mrs. Ryan.
"He was never sober longer than
seven weeks at a time in the whole of
his life. We have been married 22
years and have three children and I
always did my duty as a wife."
"Pay $10 a week," ordered the
judge
It may be all right in some of those
European countries for a man to get
some money for the heroic act of
marrying a girl, but don't go here
no, sir.
John Newman was brought into
court charged with having given his
bride of less than a year only $1.25
since the 12th of ApriL John plead
ed lack of steady empolyment, but
promised to do better in the future,
when testimony brought out the fact
that the bride had a nest egg of $300
when she married John.
"What did you do with that
money?" demanded the judge.
John thought it had been spent
legitimately. It went to furnish a
house, pay for the wedding and buy
a portion of his wardrobe and the
bride's.
Two weeks to get a job and make
good or six months in the Bridewell.
Edward J. Franz said he left his
! happy home because.his wife ordered
him out when he told her he could
not afford to buy a bungalow.
"He got $2,200 of her money," said
the wife's sister.
"Give an accounting," ordered the
ass't state's att'y.
"Well, we bought a houes with it
and then we sold the house and then
we bought another house and sold
that"
' "And then what?" asked the
judge.
"Well, it went in doctor bills and
treatment for the wife," said Franz.
Ten dollars a week and a surety
bond or six months in the Bridewell,
ordered the judge.
