Hanover Township Resident Files Complaint
For Divorce In Court Here
          Jacob L. Bridget, residing in Hanover township, filed a complaint today against Mrs. Ella Bridget, in the Shelby circuit court, for a divorce.  Mr. Bridget formerly lived near Reedville, Hancock county, and the defendant is now said to be living in the adjoining county.  Herbert C. Jones, of this city, is the attorney for Mr. Bridget.
          The couple was married February 2, 1915, and the complaint alleges that the separation took place January 26, this year, at which time Mrs. Bridget left the plaintiff and took all their household goods with her.  Mr. Bridget charges his wife said she had no love for him and did not desire to live with him.  She was sullen, quarrelsome and had a violent temper, he says.  For days she refused to speak to him and often left home without preparing any meals for the plaintiff, the complaint states.
