Charge Made By Curtis Gunn in Suit for Divorce
          Charging that his wife was quarrelsome and continually nagged at him, Curtis Gunn, a well known colored man of this city, has filed a suit in the Shelby circuit court asking for a divorce from his wife, Aro Gunn.  Elmer Bassett represents the plaintiff.  The couple was married in June 1893 and separated September 12, 1917.
          Mr. Gunn says that when he operated a grocery store that his wife insisted on staying there and that she insulted and drove away customers until the trade was ruined.  He also charges that she sold goods below cost.  He alleges that she told him she was sorry she had married him, and she took $85 from the safe in the store and refused to give it to him.  She abandoned him on September 12, he charges, and is now living at No. 755 west Brooklyn street, west Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
