Expensive for This
Man Wife Seeker
A North Dakota man, by the name
of John Anton, has been treading
a dangerous path of late, and up-hill
road full Of briers and pitfalls and
all owing to a false step which lie
made in the matrimonial direction.
Anton 'Was enegaged to Miss Pickel.
For spme reason, he decidede to
marry another maiden, probably
coucluding that Miss Pickel would
mourn for a time over the rejection
and he should glory in the fact that
two women worshipped at his shrine.
But Miss Pickle concluded that her
traitor lover was good for $6,000
and she straightway won it in a
breach of promise suit. Anton then
declared that this sweetheart of his
bachelor days was Insane, and
cause her to be locked up for the
malady. She remained incarcerated
for six days.when she was adjudged
sane, and freed. Anton then must
have concluded that the sweet pickle
of courtship days had turned into
a sour pickle, for she sued again
for $6,000 for mis-representation,
and obtained it.
