LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 26, 1910.
ACTRESS TELLS HER
MATRIMONIAL WOES
Fair Rosalind Bernard Wants a
Divorce from Husband
Teammate
Rosalind Bernard, a vaudeville
actress who seemingly' does not need
the aid of the makeup box to look well
in court, and who is seeking a divorce
from Nat Bernard, an . apostle of
the "legit," yesterday told her trou
bles before Judge Button in the su
perior court.
With eyes,flashing from beneath ar
tistically arched brows, Mrs. Bernard
told of her marriage in Anadarko,
Okla., February 28, 1907. At first all
was roseate and married life had all
the glamour of the stage. Soon, she
averred, matters changed, and she as
sorted that though she lay ill in a hos
pital at Erie, Pa., for three months in
1909, her husband, who was capable of
earning $250 a month, did not provide
for her but left her to the charity of
her friends.
Later she and her husband went to
Chicago, where he worked in various
theaters, but finally deserted her and
left her unprovided for, she said.
Judge Hutton took the matter under
advisement, as Mrs. Bernard could not
satisfy him that she had made all ef
fort possible to serve papers upon her
husband. She said she did not know
where he was and so resorted to pub
lication of the summons in news
papers.
So it still is uncertain whether the
vaudeville team of Bernard and Ber
nard will bo legally separated and the
plaintiff be permitted to resume her
maiden name of Pomeroy.

vember l of the same year she de

cilmen Trim Various City
Departments' Estimates
A radical departure from former
methods of handling the city's budget
was announced yesterday by W. J.
Washburn, chairman of the finance
committee of the council.
"The sessions of the budget commit
tee are to be open to the public," said
Air. Washburn. "We intend to take
one department at a time and go
through the whole list, as a cut of a
million dollars must be made altogeth
er. We will probably begin Wednes
day morning with either the park de
partment or the department of public
works. \
"A . at of more than a million must
be made to bring the department esti
mates within the expected Income. The
total amount asked for by all depart
ments Is $4,889,332. The estimated in
come ft $3,830,000. This Is based on the
assumption that there will be $1,100,000
income from licenses and department
receipts, and that an 85-cent tax rate
will bring $2,7-0,000.
Last year the city's income was $3,- ,
438,812, and $3,329,765 was allowed to
departments. The city's Income ex
ceeded the estimate more than $100,000,
and not all the money awarded the de
partments was spent. There will he a
balance left over that will help in the
total income."
Some of the largest estimates are:
Police, $795,435; fire, $823,337; street,
$101,085; park. $337,065; light, $270,000;
sprinkling, $198,095; - sweeping, $177,129,
