CHARGES OF WIFE
E. A. Rounds, the House Mover,
Defendant in Sensational
SPOUSE DRIVEN FROM HOME
In Hiding for a Week In Fear of

For Yovir Supplies.
"You Know T5te Boys."
Edwin A. Rounds, the house mover,
is made defendant in a suit for di
vorce containing sensational charges
filed by his wife, Margaret Rounds, in
the circuit court, through her attor
neys, Sweeney & Walker.
The couple were married at Clin
ton, Iowa, March 1C, 1S74, and have
four children. Albert, William, Ma
dura and NeUje. The male children
are all married, while Nellie has been
an invalid for a year past and has
been living with her mother.
In her declaration Mrs. Rounds
states that "on account of some triv
ial matter, which was unintentional
on her part, and without provocation
said defendant commenced to abuse
your oratrix. calling her bad names,
intimating she was untruthful and
unfaithful to him, and did this to such
an extent your oratrix was almost
driven to desperation, and finally
drove your oratrix from tbe house
in a violent manner by pushing her,
and would not permit your oratrix
to take her clothes therefrom."
Mrs. Rounds states that, fearing
her husband would carry out his
threats to take her life, she hid from
him in the neighborhood of her home
for a week. He told" her she must
leave Rock Island; lhat both of them
coull no longer live in the same town.
Leaves City to Homor Huaband.
To humor her husband she states
that, she did leave the city, remaining
away for three weeks, and making
her home during that time with her
sister-in-law. At the solicitation of
her children she returned, and
awhile her husband's behavior
ward her was bearable, but he
not continue long in this frame
In 1001 Mrs. Rounds charges that
her husband became intimate with
a domestic employed at their home.
and when she protested against his
conduct he drove her from the house
again. The couple have lived apart
for more than two years.

Some of the most anxious hours of
a mother's life are those when the
little ones of the household have the
croup. There is no other medicine so
effective in this terrible malady as
Foley's Honej and Tar. It is a house
hold favorite for throat and lung trou
bles, and as it contains no opiates or
other poisons, it can be safely given.
Sold by all druggists.
Doesn't Respect Old Are.
It's shameful when youth fails to
show proper respect for old age, but
just the contrary in the case of Dr.
King's New Life Tills. They cut off
maladies, no matter how severe and
rrespective of old age. Dyspepsia,
jaundice, fever, constipation, all yield
to this perfect pill. 25 cents, at Ilartz
