box car at Ninety-fifth street, lost his

An Interesting suit for divorce pro
ceedings has been filed in the circuit
court by Mrs. Henry Herberts of Kens
ington, who asks for a divorce from
her husband Henry, on the grounds of
cruel and inhuman treatment. The tes
tlmony in some places is rich and Is
very interesting to an outsider. Mrs
Herberts asserts that on the evening of
Jan. 1, 1908, when her husband poured
water down her back when she was
about to retire and when she screamed
he told her to continue would mean
her instant death, as he would shoot
Following this attack she says her
husband chased her around the room
with a butcher knife threatening to
cut her throat If he caught her. She
asserts that she was successful in
keeping away from him, thus saving
her life. In other sheet, Mrs. Herberts
says her husband neglected her for
other women and that he was a fre
quent visitor at the different resorts
of Twenty-second street and Armour
avenue. She further says that her hus
band at one time brought one of the
inmates of a down town dive to their
home and introduced her as his cousin
from the east. Then she gives a graphic
description of what followed.
It Is said Mr. Herberts denies all of
these charges and says that his wife
has made false charges. A large num
ber of Kensingtonltes will be down
town to hear the trial when It comes
up for hearing.

For the past week prairie fires have
made their appearance all over Calu
met Heights. One of the fires was set
near the South Chicago hospital which
is situated at Ninety-second street and
Oglesby avenue and It was only for
the quick thinking of one of the nurses
that a panic was averted.
The fire it is thought was set by
some small urchins who take a de
light In seeing them burn, the nurse
who was on outside of the hospital at
the time noticed the grass burning
and at once took a broom and started
to pu out the blaze, she succeeded only
after a severe fight as the wind was
fanning the flames all the time. The
nurse was burned a little about the
hands but not serious and the patients
did not know of the fire at all.
One of the fires set by some one set
fire to a house on Stony Island avenue
and the fire department was summoned
to put it out.

One man was seriously and another
slightly injured yesterday afternoon at
the Wisconsin Steel company's plant in
South Deering. The first accident oc
curred shortly after noon when Per-
scheun Valemere, 10812 Torrence ave
nue, sustained a crushed arm while
operating an unloading machine in the
south end of the plant. Valemeres'
right arm was caught between two fly
wheels and before he could release it
his arm had been badly crushed. The
man waa take nto the South Chicago
hospital where it will be necessary to
amputate his arm.
The second accident occurred about
3 o'clock when Henry Peterson, an em
ployee in the machine shop, was struck
by a flying piece of iron and sustained
a severe scalp wound. His wounds
were dressed by a physician and later
he was taken to his home In Pullman.
A case of utter destitution came to
the notice of the police of South Chi
cago last night when Mrs. Mary
SczpkoskI, 8557 Sherman avenue, ap
plied for aid to bury her five-months-
old child which died yesterday evening.
Six months ago the unfortunate wom
en was deserted by her husband and
since then she has heard nothing of
him. A month after he absconded, a
fourth child was born. The mother
and her four little children lived as
best they could, but yesterday the
youngest child died after having a siege
with the extreme heat of last Tuesday.
The county will take care of the
woman and her dead child until the
family Is in btter circumstances.

To Organized Labor And Its Friends
On the 8th day of August, 1908, an!
opportunity will be presented you of
selecting by ballot, without Interfer- i
ence of party machines, the candidates
you wish to represent your affiliations
at the election in November. If the
voters wish to retain this political in
dependence, won for them after a long
and bitter struggle last year, it is
essential that all go to the polls and
vote their party nominations accord
ing to their own convictions.
In this connection, we fail to per
ceive the justice of the outcry about
the various machines selecting slates.
The machines have the same rights to
recommend tickets or slates as the
Municipal Voters' League or the South
Chicago Trades and Labor Assembly.
We do, however, condemn any attempt
on the part of machines to restrict the
number of candidates for the various
offices. This is the greatest evil with
which the voters are faced, and it re
mains for them to put it out of the
power of bosses to punish any good
men who have the temerity to contest
for places on the party tickets against
