The warrant was Issued after Veitc

Young Hoosler Husband Takes Fourth
Wife With.This Flowry Name.

ried his fourth wife , Miss Myrtle
Hoover , aged IS. lie obtained a di
vorce from his third wife yesterday.

tial to that name.
Wife Denies Home Trouble.
That there were other causes than
homo trouble which prompted self
destruction by Ernest Fenske , who
suicided while driving on Norfolk ave
nue Monday afternoon , is the belief
of his wife , who emphatically denies
that there has been trouble between
herself and her husband.
"We have not quarreled , " she says ,
"and there has been no trouble be
tween us. My husband and I were
j visiting at Omaha only a few days
ago. Sunday night Robert Fenske ,
' my husband's brother from Iloskins ,
. was visiting at our place and they
' were playing cards. There seemed to
be no trouble. During the night
there was much noise in the yard and
1 my husband went out to see what was
the matter. He came back to bed
(
and I asked him if lie found anything
'
and he said 'no. ' During breakfast
Monday morning he threw silver
knives and forks at a dog under the
table because the dog would not go
out when ordered. This Is all the
trouble that I can think of that has
been going on. My husband and his
brother left Monday morning for Nor
folk and Robert was to go back to
' his home on the train. I received a
telephone call from the Craig farm
' afterwards that my husband had shot
' himself. I found his revolver at home.
' He must have bought a now one
j here. "
I Mrs. Craig , who accompanied Mrs.
Fenske to Norfolk after Mrs. Fenske
I.had been notified of her husband's
death , declares that she has been a
neighbor to the Fenskes for a long
' time and that she has never heard or
'
seen any trouble between Mr. and
Mrs. Fenske. She does not believe
I that trouble with his wife caused the
man's deed.
Funeral arrangements have not yet
been completed. There will be nc
coroner's inquest. The funeral is de
layed by Kansas relatives who will
probably come.
