Mrs. KniiDu Weatherly Charge? Hus
iMind With Absenting Himself
1 Vom Home und Failing to Support
Her, und Pending Triul of the Case
Ih to RaoehrC $50 Per Month and
M200 for Counsel Fees.
Columbia, Dec. 16.?Charging de?
sertion on the part of her husband,
and naming in her complaint a se?
ries of offences against home life,
Mrs. Emma Weatherly, of Bishop
ville, appealed to Judge Memmlnger
through her attorneys for alimony
pendente lite this afternoo^y tond her
husband, Ike W. Weatherly, will
have to pay her $50) ijer month and
$200 counsel fees under Judge Mem
mlnger's order. ' v ,,
The case on its merits has not been
tried, the action taken today being
merely preliminary, but when the
whole matter is aired in the courts
there may be interesting and sensa?
Mr. and Mrs. Weatherly were mar?
ried twenty-four years ago, and up
to a recent period have lived togeth?
er as man and wife. According to
the complaint, Ike Weatherly, t of I
Bishopville, has for the past three
or four years "constantly and con?
tinuously absented himself from
home, and neglected and failed to
properly support, maintain and care
for" his wife It is also stated in the
complaint that Weatherly has con?
stantly associated with other women,
not only in this State, but also in
Florida and Georgia. Mrs. Weather?
ly claims that her husband defiantly
stated to her that he would associate
with these other women as long as
he liked, and that Weatherly has "so
far lost the sense of decency as to
offer to pay plaintiff a trifling sum of
money to say nothing about his go?
ing with and associating with some
Bringing the matter close home to
Columbia, it is alleged that Weath?
erly spent large sums of money "In
the purchase of cloaks and furs for
women In and around the city of Co?
Also It is alleged that Weatherly
"has left and deserted the plaintiff,
has refused to enlighten her as to
where he Intended to go, leaving her
without means to support herself, sold
his automobile, carried away his
horse and buggy in the night time,
threatened to go to the State of Flor?
ida for the purpose of freeing himself
from this plaintiff."
Mrs. Weatherly claims her hus?
band is worth $12,000 to $15,000,
while the husband's attorneys claim
that his wealth does not exceed $3,
000 to ^$4,000. Mr. Weatherly, so the
complaint alleges, was going to dis?
pose of his property in Bishopville
and leave town. But Judge Mem?
mlnger, In an order issued upon ap?
plication of plaintiff's attorneys, re?
strained Sheriff Robert E. Muldrow,
Jr., from turning over to Weatherly
the proceeds from the sale of his
property on December 6. It Is from
this money that the alimony granted
by Judge Memmlnger will be paid.
Mrs. Weatherly claimed that she aid?
ed her husband In accumulating this
property, and is now unable to take
care of herself.
The matter that came before
Judge Memmlnger was solely upon
the granting of alimony pending the
final determination of the cause.
Judge Memmlnger stated that Inas?
much as such suits were usually
fought out in the courts, going final?
ly Into the Supreme Court, counsel
fite should be provided for the wo?
man. He named $200 to be paid in
four Instalments of $50 each, $50
per month alimony to be paid on the
last day of each month, pending the
determination of the suit for perma?
The Messervey case was cited and
a numbr of other cases touching the
alimony question in this State,
There were ? number of affidavits
in the case. The plaintiff was repre?
sented by State Senators John Clif?
ton, of Sumtcr, and B. Frank Kelley,
of Lee, and the defendant by Attor?
ney McLaughlin, of Bishopville. It
was claimed by the defense that the
husband merely wished to go to
Florida to engage in the lumber bus?
iness, and that the wife should have
gone with him, that he was support?
ing his wife now, while plaintiff
claims by affidavit that only small
sums of money had been given and

YAWNING TO FILL THE HOL?

A perfect chest and bust depend
upon the lung ?capacity. As singers
advance In years they develop su?
perb chests because of the tremendous
lung expansion that the forced
breathing cultivates. We will go in?

who wish it, now I want to ask my 1
readers if they know the value of

All breathing exercises are based
upon the yawn, and the yawn is na?
ture's means of ventilating the lungs.
Now, If we bring our imagination to
plav upon the yawn, we can improve
It. For instance, stimulate a yawn?
let it be an exaggerated, long-drawn
out yarn. The ichest elevates itself, the
abdomen distends Itself, the should?

the neck grow tense, even the nos
trials are dilated; in short, the en?

vigorously; bend the elbows until the

then flap the elbows back and forth

relaxing generally. Xothlng can

and repeated in this way to develop
the muscles and fill out the hollows
of the neck, shoulders and chest.
