This Was One of The Reasons He Secured A Divorce Today,
And There Are Several Others
          A divorce was granted at 1 o’clock this afternoon by Judge Blair in the case of  William Atwood  against his wife,  Zetta May Atwood.
          They were married June 11, 1903, and separated in October 1908.  Atwood made the charge that his wife used vile names in addressing him; that she ran him out of the house with a hot iron and that she assaulted him with her fists.  She was continually quarreling with and scolding him and she said she did not care for him; that she married him only to secure a home.  She acknowledged that she had threatened his life on one occasion.
          She was also caught here on one occasion in a house of questionable character.  Her name was  Berry  before her marriage and she and her husband resided at Bengal.
