all the rings with which she was
'loaded 'down were .taken from her
at night and locked up. Being an
"old man's darling" was not all
it was cracked up to be, and she
"got a mad on," Several months
ago she began proceedings in
Gary, by which her husband was
only allowed $12 a week to spend.
If she couldn't have the money,
then he shouldn't either.
She says her husband spent his
-money where it would make the
biggest bluff, but personally she
Jiad less after marriage than be
fore. So she left Bryan, and .he
filed suit for divorce. Jie has
been enjoined from spending any
part of his $2,000,000 fortune, but
the 12 iron men a week. Mrs.
Brjan has been enjoined from
.disposing of her jewelry. Every
body seems to be "enjoin" things,
hut it isn't a joke.
Seriously, if you DID marry
a man for his money, and told
him that was why you were do-
'ing it,
. And he didn't loosen up, come
"through, or shell out,
... Wouldn't you be peeved ?

"' Federal Judge Landis is get
ting to be a regular "devil of a
fellow." This morning the judge
"opened wine," except that the
opening was performed on a beer
bottle, or several beer bottles,
right in open court.
1 The Charles F. Ogren Co., is
charged with seeking to evade
payment on the revenue tax on
.nonintoxicant. The. government
alleges it is beer.
The courtroom was crowded
this morning. It was noticeable
that the only newspaper men
there were ones with thirsts.
Teetotalers, if there are such
things among reporters, were not
assigned to the court. All the
spectators and officials seemed
to be in a receptive mood, and
anxious to start receiving.
The court "was hushed. All was
silent Judge Landis produced a
workmanlike corkscrew, inserted
it in the cork, and twisted. Then
he gave a sharp jerk. "Pop !" the
bottle was opened, to an accom
paniment of delighted "Ahs"'
from the audience.
Amid wild excitement the
judge poured a glassful of the
liquid. It has a "collar," all right,
and the judge held it up admir
ingly. Just as every one expect
ed to see him toss off the "lo
tion" he turned to Clerk O'Sulli
van, and said:
"We will now determine, if pos
sible, if this is beer." v '
O 'Sullivan reached for the
glass, and drained it. He looked
pleased. "It tastes mighty fine,
your honor," was his verdict. "I'd
call it beer."
More glasses were poured out.
Lawyers and newspapermen '
pushed eagerly forward to act as
a jury. All tasted. All smiled.
But the judge wasn't satisfied,
and ordered a case of the "beer"
sent to the court chemist for analysis.
