thafwhere she buys is of as much importance as what she buys and
what she pays for it. .Groceries of poor quality are dear at almost
any price, which accounts for the fact that so many are turning to
SHIELDS' CASH GROCERY, where they know they get -only the best
that the market' affords at prices that cannot be duplicated. Buying
goods of the highest quality in large quantities makes i possible

William Wakers Makes Damag
ing Admissions at Divorce
MIXED WITH OTHER WOMEN
Guilty of Offense He Charges "Wile
"With Suit Dismissed.
When .William Walters went on the
witness stand in the circuit court to
day, to testify in his suit for divorce
against his wife, Marie Walters, whom
he charged with infidelity, he evident
ly thought it would make no differ
ence if he admitted that his conduct,
since separation from his wife, had
been anything but what that of a
model husband should be.
In his bill Walters, who is'a soldier
at Hock Island arsenal, alleged his
wife had been intimate with other
men whose acquaintance slje had
made at Prick Munro's pavilion and
other resorts of that character in the
Davenport tenderloin district, and
that he had left her on learning t hat
she had been unfaithful to her mar
riage vows. Walters went into detail
in relating his wife's misconduct in
direct examination conducted by his
attorney. Carl Kuehl.
It is customary when the defendant
has not employee!, an attorney for the
court to appoint counsel to cross ex
amine the complainant. -This dutv
fell to the lot of Georire W. Wood, of
Moline, who was in court as attorney
m another case, which was to ciniiA
up at the morning session. Mr. Wood
asked Walters if he had seen his vvifi
in the several places he charged her
with frequenting, lie said he had.
"Were you ever in these places
when vour wife was not present?"' in
quired the lawyer.
"Yes, I was." replied the witness.
"Did vou ever associate with other
w omen .
"Yes. I did."
Then the attorney grew more per
sonal, ant: made Walters admit that
he had been guiltv of the offense that
he had made the grounds for his di
vorce proceed.inirs. When Walters
had made this confession the court in
terrupted1, stating he dil not wish to
hear any further testimony, ami en
tered an order dismissing the case.
