he red that all kinds of stories of how
Martens was put out of the way by
Sand a, the Italian, were circulated
by George Smith, the Moline detec
tive. But Martens has returned
home alive and well, however, and
declares he will have vengeance upon
the dago who invaded his home dur
ing his absence and won the affec
tions of his wife. Said Martens to a
newspaper man: "I left home about
the middle of last May, going to
Hardy county, Iowa, where I got
work. The reason I left was because
I could not cet work where I was and
my family was in need. I wrote to
my wife regularly and sent her all
the money I earned.. I did not know
there was such a man living as
Frank Sanda nor did mv wife ever
mention that name. Last Friday I
came back to spend the holidays
with my family, but upon arrival at
Cordova I found mv home rinanrtarl

of that name will recall to old thea

listening to his renditions of a favor

his engagement with "A Model Hus
band," written by C. T. Dazey espe
cially to fit the peculiar style of the
popular comedian. The 'story re
lates the escapades of a henpecked
husband during his wife's absence.
Mr. Dillon is simply immense in the
part of the henpecked husband.
Popular prices of admission will rule.
Packed houses will be the result, and
there will be a change of play nightly.

Wroacre a ? f Ursa,
Down at the circuit clerk's office
there are some divorce proceedings
wmcn unravel an extraordinary
Eiece of treachery against Albert B.
iller, of Moline. In January in at
ne was nnited tn marriage to Miss
Nellie Schott. Previous to this oc
casion he enjoyed the companionship
of Miss Minnie Minteer, without the
knowledge of the complainant, so
she represents in her declaration.
So devoted were his attentions tow
ard Miss Minteer that she had every
reason to believe that his promise!
of some day making her his wife
came from the bottom of his heart.
And so he gained her confidence and
was allowed liberties that woo Id
bave been resented under any other
circumstances. When matters be
came serious he sought the affection
of Miss Schott. He received a wel
come hand and a quick marriage
agrre oeut followed.
.trrrxtedim 1IM Vlctlna ly.
And so the marriage occurred Jan.
S. While the happy event was being
celebrated constable appeared on
the feeece with a warrant for the
groom, who was seriously charged
by Miss Minteer. He was bouod
over to the circuit court and after
opending a considerable time in jail
was ushered into the county court.
Auother marriage was illegal; so he
was heavily lined. He couldn't pay
and after another lime in jail was
eventually released. Now Mrs. Mil
ler has arrived at the conclusion
thai he simply used her as a tool to
evade a marriage with the woman to
whom ho had proven taUe and
wrongeil them both. In her applica
tion in divorce Mrs. Miiler also
makes other grave charges against
her husband and says he is guilty of
everything requisite for immediate
transportation to satin ville. She
has retained McEniry & McEniry as
