Divorce at 83
          At Lima, Ohio, the other day a divorce suit, the plaintiff in which is 83 years of age and the defendant 67 years, was commenced, the parties having been married only three months.  They were married in Shelbyville, Ind., and the plaintiff,  Alex Caseman,  charges his wife  Mary [Reed]  with desertion, gross neglect of duty and prays a divorce on those grounds.  Caseman owns a large fram [sic] and after their arrival there she left ostensibly to see a sick daughter, but refuses to return to her husband.  Caseman is all broken up over the affair, as it was his first matrimonial venture.
