DIVORCE  SUIT
----------
(Special From Manilla)
          Yesterday in the Rush circuit court, Arnold G. Haehl filed a complaint for divorce from his wife, Lora M. Haehl.  The parties reside south of Manilla, near the Shelby county line.  The plaintiff asks the custody of the five-year-old son, Loyd B. Haehl.
          The charges are rather sensational in character.  It is alleged that Mrs. Haehl has been guilty of intoxication and of acts of an immoral nature.   The parties were married in 1898, and lived together until last Friday.  Mr. Haehl is a son of  Fred J. Haehl  and is well known in Shelby county.

ASKS  FOR  DIVORCE
FROM  GEORGE  HAEHL
----------
Mrs.  Nora  Haehl,  Whose  Husband
Fractured  Her  Right  Arm
and  Took  Their  Year  Old
Child,  Has  Filed  Complaint.
----------
            Mrs. Nora Haehl, after suffering brutal treatment at the hands of her burly husband, George Haehl, a bartender, has filed a complaint for divorce.  Notice requesting his appearance before  Judge Sparks  at Rushville, has been served upon Haehl, in connection with a complaint asking for restraining order seeking to prevent him from taking charge of the child.  The divorce proceedings and the proceedings for a restraining order are in the hands of the law firm of Hord & Adams.  The notice requesting the appearance of Haehl before Judge Sparks to defend himself against the order was served by  Deputy Sheriff Ritchey.  The report that a restraining order had been served is erroneous.
            Since the story of the brutal assault of the big husband upon his little wife -- a woman weighing less than 100 pounds -- the police have made no effort whatever to apprehend Haehl.  Indignation over the cruelty of Haehl is rife in the neighborhood of west Washington and Maple streets.  The police have been roundly criticized for their apparent listlessness in the matter, when persons committing less brutal and less serious offenses are promptly arrested and brought up to justice.

CHARGES  NOT  FILED
BY  MRS. HAEHL  YET
-------
Woman  Whose  Arm  Was
Broken  Yesterday  by
Her  Angry Husband  Seeks
to  Get  Possession of Child
First -- Arrest  May  Follow.
----------
          No warrant has been sworn out against  George Haehl  by his wife, whom Haehl is said to have beaten yesterday with a severity that resulted in a broken arm for the woman.  After the encounter, Haehl is accused of taking their one year old child and carrying it away.  Mrs. Haehl spent the greater part of today consulting attorneys and other representatives of the law, seeking advice upon the best method of obtaining possession of her child.  It is understood that Haehl, who is employed at the saloon of  William Fleming, is still in the city.
          Mrs. Mohr, a neighbor of the Haehl's said she went into the Haehl household immediately after the fight and found Mrs. Haehl lying on the floor with the blood streaming from her head, where she declared she had been struck by her husband with a stove poker.  Mrs. Haehl also asserts that her arm had been broken by a blow from the poker.  As Haehl left the house with the child in his arms he said, according to Mrs. Mohr, "I guess I have fixed her this time."  The fight between Haehl and his wife is said to have resulted from a quarrel of long standing, in which Haehl has had grievances on his side of the case.  It is thought Mrs. Haehl will take proceedings toward getting possession of her child.  In case she cannot do that she will probably cause the arrest of her husband on a criminal charge.
          Haehl declares his wife attacked him with a butcher knife while intoxicated.

          Jake Haehl, who was the defendant in a divorce suit in the Circuit Court yesterday, which cause is now under advisement, celebrated the occasion by getting "fullerín a goose" yesterday evening, and going down to the house where his wife resided about half-past nine, he whooped her up.  He was gathered in by  Constable Alf Isaacs  and spent the remainder of the evening in the "cooler."  This morning he was brought before Squire Higgins, on a charge of disturbing the peace, to which he plead guilty, and was fined and costed in the sum of seven dollars.
