Judicial? hnlrM uuil Furui
Convinced that an agreement drawn
Bp by a notary would not hold as a
divorce before the law. Frank Poweli
kouski. of Coal alley, has Instituted
proceedings through the regular chan
nels, a bill having been filed against
his wife Anna in the circuit court to
day by his attorneys. Ludolph & Rey
nolds. Powelikouski and his spouse have
been leading a stormy existence since
th'ir marriage the Itlth of last March.
She is his second wife. He lias two
children by his former union, Pranlde,
H. and Loots, ti. When Powelikouski
had grown tired of dodging chairs,
buckets and hoes hurled at him by
his wife, he declares, in an effort to
injure him. he decided to appeal to the
law for relief.

He poured forth his troubles into
the ear of a village notary. The re
sult was the preparation of an agree
ment, to Which the signatures of Pow
elikouski and his wife were seemed.
What the notary doubtless meant to
draw up was a separation agreement,
but it was accepted as a divorce by
the couple. One of the conditions was
that the husband was lo pay his wife
9150. He paid down a portion of the
amount and some days after came to
the city to borrow the balance. He
produced the document at the court
house-, where he w:is informed that
if diil not afford the relief that he was
Cruelty is the grounds on which the
divorce Is asked. Several instances are
cited wherein the husband charges
that he was made the object of violent
assaults. On one occasion he states
that he narrowly escaped having a
heavy hoe brought down across his
head. The only thing that saved him
was his being a better foot racer
than his spouse.

Powelikouski charges also that his
wife beats his children, and further
that she has threatened to poison
him. and he fears that she will do so
unless the court by injunction re
strains her from living in the same
house with him. It appears that Mrs.
Powelikouski has been in possession
of the home, and refuses the husband
admittance thereto. He asks that she
be barred from all rights given her
under the law in the property, in the
accumulation of which he states she
did not assist.
