HUSBAND  SEEKS  CHILD
----------
          Howard Deitzer, defendant in a suit for divorce filed here recently by Mrs. Florence Deitzer, today filed an answer, denying all charges made by his wife, and asking for the custody of their twenty months old child.  Mr. Deitzer alleges that his wife left his home on August 9, 1917, of her own will and that he had no knowledge of her intention until he returned to his home from work and found her gone.  He says that he has asked her to return and that his sister asked Mrs. Deitzer to return, but that she has refused to do so.  He says that his wife now works out as a domestic and that she has no home in which to keep the baby.  He adds that he lives with his parents, and that his mother is willing to care for the child and would provide a good home for it.

MASONIC  MEETING
----------------
Monday Night --- Three Candidates Given Third Degree.
---------------
          Monday night Shelby Lodge, No. 28, F. and A.M., held a very pleasant meeting.  Three candidates,  Garnett Chafee,  Fred Deitzer  and  George T. Torrence,  were given the Third degree.  Work began at four o'clock and at six o'clock a fried chicken supper was served.  There were about sixty present.  Truth compels us to state that more Masons were present at supper than saw the work.  The degree team was changed somewhat on the different candidates and all given a chance to show their Masonic workmanship.  Robert Mardis  is Master of the Lodge.  Mr. C. W. Nields, agent of the Big Four Railway Co., assisted in the work.  O. F. Meachem,  Master of Acton Lodge, and Dr. J. B. Spicer,  also of Acton, assisted in the work.  The meeting was quite a pleasant one.  Shelbyville Lodge has a healthy and prosperous growth and a fine membership.

RABBIT  NEST  IN  CITY.
----------
          Peter Deitzer has a nature story that puts all others with reference to Shelbyville in the shade for this season at least.  Mr. Deitzer, who is the custodian of the Carnegie library, is jealously guarding a wild rabbit's nest in the very heart of the city.  And what makes the incident the more interesting is the fact that the mother rabbit is now caring for five wee bunnies in the nest.  Any specific directions regarding the location of the nest must come from Mr. Deitzer, as the Democrat is not at liberty to give any further information on the very odd subject.
          This afternoon a similar case was reported to the Democrat by Samuel Laughlin, of west Washington street.  Mr. Laughlin says there is a rabbit's nest on his lawn and that he finds considerable diversion in watching the actions of the mother rabbit.  He is sure the nest contains young ones, but has never yet disturbed it.
