DIVORCE ASKED BY
Plaintiff States That His Wife
Has Been Guilty of Adultery
and Neglected Home
Shedrick Anders, through his attorney, Elmer Bassett, has filed suit
in the Circuit court for divorce from his wife, Mrs. Bertha Anders, and
the custody of their two year old child. The complaint states that the couple
were married June 2, 1910, and that they separated January 24, 1914. During
their married life they were separated on four different occasions, before the
filing of the complaint.
The plaintiff asserts that after each separation his wife would beg for him
to take her back and that he did. He said that the last time she promised that
she would be true to her marital vows and that she would pay no attention nor
speak to one Frank White, who, she said, has persuaded her to leave her
husband and her home.
She failed to keep the promise, the complaint states.
It is charged that she
wrote cards to White and that she was guilty of adultery with him. Mr. Anders
asserts that his wife would curse him and their child and that on one occasion
she fastened the little boy in the woodshed in the rear of their home and kept
him there for several hours. She is also charged with neglecting her home and
staying out late at night.
