When district court opened at Pembina on Monday the divorce case of Rosa Mager vs. John F. Mager of Walhalia, was begun before Judge Knieshaw. Mr Mager, is the well known miller of Walhalia. The plaintiff allegesdruuken ness and cruelty, while the defendant alleges misbehaviour of various kinds, frequenting improp places, receiving tl)e detentions of other men, etc The evitrence shows that the couple began to quarrel within two months after their marriage in the spring of 1901, and had ,f+tr -I «uu u«u various differences, partings and make ups until the summer of 1.900, when they parted finally. In most cases each party gives an entirely different version of the causes and extent of the quarrels, but no personal violence is alleged. There is some evidence by detectives hired by Mr. Mager to watch the actions of his wife which is rather damaging to her, but most of which Mrs. Mager brands as false. This is the third time in which Mrs. Mager has applied for a divorce, her first husband being Joseph Hebert, formerly of Cavalier., by whom she had two children, who are now at a convent school, and her second husband was Dr. Chagnon, formerly of Leroy, whom she acknowledged on the witness stand ES being her uncle. Mr. Mager was also previously married and was also granted a divorce from his first wife, Jt is one of those unfortunate affairs which necessarily must be made more or less IS THE RATE 1, W'« sJjssJ'Sitt 3V LANGDON, NORTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 30,1908.

HIS BODY BURNED TO A CRISP. Tragic Event in Bruce Township Wednesday Night—Victim Awakens to be Overpowered by the Flames He Fights to Save Itis Life- Was Alone in House of His Brother Asleep When the House Caught Fire. As we go to press the sad news of a tragic death which occurred live mile3 south of Clyde sometime Wednesday. Murdock McLeod, who resides with his brother John and family was the victim. John McLeod and family drove over to a neighbor's house for a short visit and while there one of the children took sick and they were compelled to remain all night. Murdock came to Calvin last night and remained in town until about 10 o'clock when he started for home and this was the last anyone seen him. 'lhis morning some of the neighbors noticed that the house was gone and upon in-' vestigation it was found to be in ruins and no one at this time knew that a human being had gone up in the flames. They quickly went in search of John when they met him on the road and told him of the fire as the buggy that Mur docR had used was still standing near the scene of the lire John thought that possibly his brother had lost his life which upon investigation was found to be true, as the remains were found among the debris in the cellar burned to a crisp. No one will ever know how the fire originated but everything goes to show that he had made an attemj tto fight the flames as a tin pail that had been left in the house was found hang ing on the pump. All the evening chores had been done and tho horso that ilio deceased drove to town had been prop erly cared for the night. Deceased was about 40 years of age and from child hood was afflicted with very poor eye sight and it is surmised that while he was inside fighting the flames he was over come by the smoke, was unable to find his way out and was burned to death. The house was insured for SI,000 but this will not cover the loss and the sur viving brother has the sympathy of t.ae entire community. As we go to press the coroner is holding an inquest and at this late hour it is impossible for us to get any further details.--Calvin Times.
