WIFE WEARY OF
BS. PATTON ASKS DIVORCE
FOR NOVEL CAUSE
SAYS HER HUSBAND IS LAZY
f Plaintiff's Caia Is Strengthened b;
estlmony of an Old Soldier,
Who Is Witness for
"Because a woman Is married to ft
man Is that any sign she Is compelled
to treat that man like a baby, wash
him and trim his nails for hlm7" asked
the Indignant Mrs. Margaret A. Fatton
in reciting her troubles to Judge Bord
well yesterday morning. , '.;■ './.'
The woman wns suing for a divorce
from Michael Patton, an old soldier,
and her complaints were many. They
were married In 1878 and some time ago
went to live in Santa Monica, so that
Patton could be near the Soldiers' home
;The trouble started a short time after
the move west and Mrs. Patton says
that she was compelled to bathe h?r
husband. That was only a small part
of the difficulty, according to the
numerous allegations, and the plaintiff
further accused her husband of trylnu
to kill her.
"I was afraid of my life when that
man was around," shouted the excited
woman, and one of the attorneys said:
"Madam, do you talk to your husband
"When He Need* It"
"Yes, when he needs.lt," was the
reply. ."My husband has always abused
me. -I bad a little property and he has
tried his best to make me give It to the
Socialists, but I fooled him. and it still
belongs to me." ... ... .. v
iPatton had a number of witnesses
from the Soldiers' home to. testify In his
defense. One of these witnesses cause!
surprise . when asked about Patton's
habits. The old soldier cast one look
at Patton and then became Indignant.
Turning to Judge Bordwell, he said:
. "That fellow Patton is the laziest
man In the state of California. I will
even go a step farther. He is the laziest
man I ever knew."
: i The witness was hurried from ' the
stand and the case continued.
WOODBRIDGE TROUBLES AIRED
Counter Charges of Cruelty Cause Puz.
: As the last chapter ln~ the domestic
troubles of Prof. Samuel M. Wood
bridge, the South Pasadena chemist,
suit for divorce was instituted against
him yesterday by Mrs. Edith G. Woori
bridge before Judge Oster, sitting in
department 3 of the superior court.
/The case has been one of the most
sensational in the history of South
Pasadena and there was a large at
tendance at the trial yesterday. Ac
cording to the allegation of Prof. Wood
bridge, he is the 111 used party to the
suit, although his wife la the plaintiff.
He asserts that his mother-in-law and
wife conspired to trump up a criminal
charge against him on which he wns
compelled to stand trial.
•Mrs. Woodbrldge declares that her
husband has been cruel. According: to
the complaint Woodbrldge lls charged
with having told his mother-in-law she
had reared "a hard bunch" of girls. He
Indignantly denie4 the statement on the
fltand yesterday. According to hIJ
statement he went to. his .mother-in
law's house to obtain an audience with
his wife, but when she saw who was at
the door she slammed in his face, and
his hand, held out to prevent such
action, crashed through the glass. This
formed the basis for an assault charge
In the Pasadena courts.
Other difficulties marred their mar
ried life and .now both want divorce,
the woman on the allegation that her
husband was extremely cruel to b^r
and the man that his wife was cruel ti
him. This forms peculiar complications
in the suit, as Judge Oster has ruled
that If both prove cruelty honors will
be even and neither shall have a
