Jules Despontin, defendant ii$an
action for alimony brought by his
wife, Rose U, Despontin, in common
pleas court Saturday, has speedily re
plied, having made an answer and
filed the same Tuesday morning to
the claims set up by his wife.
In his answer, Mr. Despontin de
nies all the allegations of his wife,
sotting forth that ever since his mar
riage to the plaintiff ho has conducted
himself as a true and faithful hus
band, has supported his wife fully and
has never abused or injured her. He
states that he has furnished her with
all money necessary for clothing and
support and has not been derelict in
his duties toward her.
The defendant denies that his mov
ing picture-show is a paying business,
stating that ho has been operating at
a loss llio past year. Ho further avers
that this is his sole property and that
the same Is worth far from $5,000, on
the contrary being worth probably
?1,G00. lie states that he and the
plaintiff are not joint owners of the
furnishings in their home, her sole
property being a piano. Mr. Despon
tin claims that his wife owns a house
and lot in Mt. Vernon, worth $2,500,
that she has money in the bank, but
that ho has never asked nor received
a single dollar from her.
The defendant further alleges that
the plaintiff neglects her housework,
does not care whether meals are pre
pared or not and, If defendant men
tions this condition, he is met with
such ,a remark as, "I wouldn't kill my
self doing housework for any man,
and if what I do does not suit, you
could beat it."
Mr. Despontin calls attention to the
treatment by tho palntiff of his four-year-old
daughter, whom he had with
him at the time of their marriage,
stating that his wife on one occasion
whipped tho child until it was blade
and blue. Ho further sets forth that
ho has irequently been compelled to
take tho little one out for something
to eat, tho plaintiff refusing to pre
pare anything for tho baby.
On March 29, 191C, tho defendant
alleges, a check was offered his wlfo
by him In the amount of ?25. This,
he claims, she refusod, stating that
sho would use her own money if In
Mr. Despontin states that tho plain
tiff is dissatisfied for some unknown
reason and that sho has, without pro
vocation, mndo such a remark as, ''I
am going to get monoy, if I break you
In conclusion, the defendant states
that ho has sent his little daughter
away in an effort to pleaso his wife;
that tho latter Is at present at their
homo on West Vino stroot, whore she
Is. abundantly provided for. Mr. Des
pontin, in view of all this, prays court

The bowels aro the natural sewer
uge system of the body. When they
become obstructed by constipation, a
part of the poisonous matter which
they should carry off is absorbed Into
tho system, making you leel dull and
stupid, and Interfering with tho di
gestion and assimilation of food. This
condition is quickly relieved by Cham

"Is it safe?" is the first question to

child as confidently as to an adult.
It is pleasant to take, too, which is
of great importance when a medicine
must be given to young children. This
remedy is most effectual in relieving
