Here, at a glance, may be seen
sonic of the causes of the domes
tic iiiilut|»i>iiirKs of Itosi'oe K.
Johnston and his wife Kose, as
they appear in pa|wrs now on file
in the county auditor's office to
day.
Johnston is asking for a di
vorce. He claims his wife had
habits of dress that were out of
proportion with his salary from
the Griffith Wheel company,
•which amounts to $115 a month.
Mrs. Johnston says In an an
swer to his complaint that her
husband does not support her
properly, and that he won't- let
her ride in his automobile, there
fore she prefers grass-widowhood.
The Itemized account of Mr.
Johnston's indebtedness was call
ed forth by this answer.
He states also that his grip up
on his job is not of a most un
yielding strength since the begin
ning of the divorce action, and
that while he holds stock in the
company it docs not reach- ma
turity until 1917, with the con
ditions that ho must hold his po
sition until that time.
Tho case will probably be
tried In Judge Easterday's court
next week.
KILLS WIFE TO
END SUFFERING
PARIS, Nov. 2 3. —M. Beguery,
a sexagenarian and former pro
cureur da la repufolique at Aries,
■whose wife had suffered from
agonies of an incurable malady,
today yielded to her oft-repeated
requests and killed her with three
revolver shots.
The couple were very much at
tached, but her sufferings made
his wife twice attempt to commit
suicide.
M. Beguery surrendered to the
police after he had killed his wife.
The sister of his wife arrived at
the station house shortly after
and exclaimed:
"Beguery, you are a saint. I
know what she suffered for years
and what you endured.
Mme. Beguery's sufferings had
made her husband neurasthenic,
so much so that his friends feared
for his reason.
The event occurred at Sanneis,
near Paris.

The best Thanksgiving menu
in town, selected by .Midges Miss

Iht for its simplicity antl its sen
sibility.
Tlie derision of the judges
inakeH Mis. ('. \V. llardon, 015
South II th street, Tacoma's ablest
housewife in things cuisine. Not
that other dinners might not be
most delicious. Indeed no, for
every one of the MM sent the
Turkey Menu Mditor speaks for
itself in loud acclaim of praise
for the woman who prepared it.
"But this dinner," say Miss
Webber and Miss Post, "is a good
sensible one, and cheap enough to
permit the housewife payment for
the turkey. The present price of
turkey does not give one the
chance of serving a very elabor
ate menu."
Simplicity is the staff of life,
declare experts, which addage is
simply a twisting about of older
one about bread. Tlie man who
invented the first really meant
simplicity when ho said bread.
He spoke metaphorically, that's
all.
But that Thanksgiving spread.
It may seem strange, but It la
none the less true, that Mrs. Bar
don's Thanksgiving dinner is al
most identical with the one Presi
dent Tart will Indulge himself in
the same day. Instead of pump
kin pie, President Taft will have
plum puddding. Otherwise Mr.
Bardon will be getting the same
dinner from his wife's kitchen.
And the chances are len to one
that the Bardon dinner will be
better than the president's for
Mr. Taft's cook is a man.

REAL ESTATE IS THE

In Tacoma real estate is a good thing to
own and the man or woman who docs not
own a piece of property should by all means
turn to page 6 of tonight's Times and look
over the vast number of bargains offered by
Tacoina dealers. Probably never again will
real estate be offered so cheap as now, nnd
the person who takes advantage of the mar
ket will never regret it.
If you want to buy, sell, exchange or rent,
