Mrs. Golda Doyle, wife cf E. 51.
Doyle, proprietor of the Park Theater,
yesterday moved her trunks from the
home of her husband to the St. Charles
H'.'tel at about the same time that her
attorneys, 0. A. Knehans and A. M.
Spradling, were filing ehr petition for
divorce in the Circuit Couil in Jack
Her action came as a complete sur
prise to her husband and his relatives
and friends. The general opinion of
those who were acquainted with thejnary trial am, testified that "Speck"
Jov es wis tnai rneir me was a con
- , ,
tinuou? honevmoon. She was regard
erf as one of the best dressed women in
the city, and all that money would buy
was at her disposal. Her husband, ac
cording to those who knew the couple
best, wanted Lor to have all she d.s-

a notice of the suit. Deputy Mioriu
Summers served the papers. j
Attorney Knehans last night declin .
ed to discuss the case. He said he had
promised Mrs. Doyle that he would J
not divulge hpr case to the newspapers
and furthermore would use his influ
once to keep the facts from the public.
When a repr.rter for The Tribune call
ed at the St. Charles Hotel lastnight,
he was informed that Mrs. Doyle had
"just stepped out with another lady."
Mr. Doyle said last might he was so
ignorant cf the facts that he could not
discuss the case intelligently. He was
asleep when Mrs. Doyle and her trunks
left the Doyle home for the St. Charles
Hotel. His mother awakened him as
soon as she learned of her daughter in
law's action. A short time later the
deputy sheriff served' the papers on
him. He consulted Judge Edward D.
Hays concerning the suit last night,
but the lawyer had nothing to say.
Those who knew the Doyles best say
they lived happily together. They

hours when the theater was open Mr. i
Doyle and his wife remained together.
She always stood guard tt the cash
drawer. She was on duty at the thea
ter Woelnesday night, and they went
home together, but her plans were
kept from her husband.
Shortly before noon yesterday a
transfer man drove up in front of the j
Doyle home onThemis street, rang the
door bell and called forMrs. Doyle's
trunks. Her mother in law responded
to the doorbell, and" upon learning the ,
driver's mission, toldhim he had evi
dently made amistake. "Go to the
next door and you will likely find the ;
trunks there," she said.

Friend's of Mrs. Doyle, in comment
int cn the suit last night, advanced the
theory that she was dissatisfied with
life in a small town. She had basked
in the glare cf the footlights before
they were wed, and felt a natural long

met his wife while she was an actress
in Little Rock, although her home was
