MKM. MrKIM <<F.T* 1)I\'ORCK.
Mrs. Margaret Kmersoii McKim.
daugbter of Dr. and Mrs. Isaae K.
Bmeraon, of Badtintore, was granted
an absolute divorce in Reno, Ney.,
Batarday, from her husband, Dr.
Smith Hollins McKim. formerly of
Baltimore, after her legal reaidenee of
six montba bad been eatabliabed. The
trial lasted two hours aml iwenty niin
utes, and Mr-. UcKim'a story of the
alleged drwnkenneaa and cruehy on tbe
part of her husband occupied just 26
minutee.
Nervou-lv laughing all through her
teatimony and agitatedly twirling
rubber band around her fioger, Mrs.
McKim told clcarly and distinctly
tbe atory of her marital trouble- Bhe
said that ahe waa married on Decem
ber .".(', 1902, in Baltimore, and that
Bbe had llved al Irvington, summering
atNewport, and that ahe bad gone to
New York in Octob-r, 1908.
The deqree granted Mrs. McKim is
an abaolute one.
Bhe will not reaume her maiden
name. and Btated that no money sef
tlemenl had or would be made with
Dr. McKim.
Thc action at Reno precludea Dr.
McKim from furtber litigation there.
but it is believed he may reaort to thc
oourta of New York.
In her teatimony ahe charged her
husband with cruelty and drunkeii
neae, and Btated that ahe had left him
six times. C nitinuing she said:
"At a dinner party, be awore at me
becauae I apoke to a gentleman fricnd
in the party. and grossly insulted n>e
in tbe preaence of all. Be told me that
I lied and use.l other more awful
worda, I coald noi ettend other partiea
giveti in our honor becanae of bis
drunkenneaa. Onoe be awore at me
about bis fancy breed of ehickens, and
threw me on the Hoor. Ify father
heard my criea and came tomy reeoue.
I retnained with father that night. In
January, 1908, my huaband Inaiated
that I leave a dinner party, and i
lire at 8:80 o'clock. I refuaed, and he
threw me acroaa tbe room on to a aofa,
breaking the arm of thc fnrniture.
When he insisted that I bc alone with
him in a elosed room, I. in fear, refuscd.
and be BUOk his nails into my arm.
and I had to lock myself up for pro
tection. I feared for my life, be was
ao drunk."
Mrs. Bmeraon denied tbe rumor
that her daugbter intcnded to marry
Alfred li. Yanderbilt, or any other
man. ^^^^_

Twenty ot 26 yeara ago street rail
way companies were thc largcst pur
chaaera of boraea. When eleetrio
power w.is adopted the st.iblcs were
need for other purpoeea, and the worki
was informed that the market for
boraea was kiUed by the trolley and
that borse dealers must lind other oc
cupationa. A few yeara btter bieyclea
appeared in eoontleaa tbouaanda, and
thebone received anotber deatfa btow.
[n 1900 tbe motor ear began to take
practical form and the bonie was again
tjeclared to be an eneumbrance on the
earth. But the prcdictions were false:
the boree aarvived every onalaught,
and tbe more tbe people used irolley
cars. bieyclea andautomobilMtbe more
insiatent was the demand for boraea;
the eatablishment of new boraeahoe
factoriea after the automobile made a
phace for ttaelf appeara to afford oon
clusive teatimony m to tho popularity
of the borae. Pricea also have been
maintained; deairable boraea scll read
ily for from $2^0 to $600. Thc statc
ment that lasl year their value was ovcr
$:?f>0,000,000, or three times the in
crease of the value of Anicrican autO
mobilea buih during the sanie period,
is caktilated to itnprcss upon thc aver
age obaerver the fact that this is by no
nieans a "horsele.vs age" desrribed in
