The difficulty began In | Sacramento.
Cook and the woman, whose' maiden name
was K. W. Sheridan, were married in
Sacramento in March, 1893. . It was an
unfortunate alliance from the beginning.
For some time Cook has been out of tho
State. When he returned he learned that
the Humane Society had threatened to
take the' two children away from Mrs.
Cook. Wednesday afternoon Judge Shields
granted Cook a divorce and awarded him
the custody of the twp children. The
woman made no defense, but she was
furious when she learned that the chil
dren were to be taken from her. •¦¦• ¦¦:•• "••:
The officers took the children and de
livered them to the father at the train.
Cook proposed to bring them to Wood
land and leave them with his family.
Mrs. Cook also boarded the . train. She
was almost hysterical during the entire
trip. At the Woodland depot the party
was met by Mrs. Cook, an aunt of the
children. There was no interference when
the little boy was placed ¦ in the buggy
