"Boot, hog, or die!" is the ten
der good-bye attributed to John
F. Beaton by his wife in a bill foe
divorce tiled in the chancery court
The complainant alleges that
Beaton left here last Tuesday for
Alaska and left her to support four
step-children and herself. Later
she alleges that she heard from
Beaton in BentonCounty.
She states they were married
July 10 this year in Benton Coun
ty, where she asserts Beaton owns
considerable property. She also
asserts that he owns two saloons
in Nashville, one at Liachey ave
nue and Berry street and the other
at 1020 Cedar street. She asks al
imony, and an attachment was is
sued to be levied upon the saloons
and property of Beaton.
Later in the day Beaton made
an assignment to j. E. Hayes and
W. II. Garrett, trustees, giving his
assets as two stocks of groceries
and saloons, store fixtures, and real
estate in Camden, Tenn. His lia
bilities are placed at 82,500. The
assignment was executed in Cam
The above is clipped from the
Nashville American of last Friday.
We learn from Tuesday's Nash
ville papers that Park Marshall,
clerk and master of the chancery
court at Nashville, had been ap
pointed receiver of the two saloons
and groceries of Beaton, and he
was directed to take charge of the
property and the cash procured by
the sheriff when he attached the
Lischey avenue saloon.
Beaton was here on Wednesday
and made the assignment as stated.
He left the same day, saying he was
goingback to Nashville. Later in
the day Marshal Combs was called
over the telephone from Nashville
by the sheriff of Davidson County
asking if Beaton was hero.
