The  Shelby  Democrat
Thursday September 20, 1923
          Mrs. Stella F. Henry, 740 Fair Avenue, has filed suit for divorce from  George W. Henry,  in the Shelby circuit court, charging cruel treatment. Cheney & Tolen represent the plaintiff in the action.
          Mrs. Henry states in the complaint that she and the defendant were united in marriage on July 12, 1911, and the separation took place last August 18. She says that when they were married, she owned the house and lot at 740 Fair Avenue, and that recently, he mortgaged the household furniture, promising that he would use the money to start a business.  The money, she says, he squandered and that he was an habitual drunkard.  The complaint sets out that he cursed her and threatened to take her life.

CLAUDE  HENRY               
            WILL  MAKE  RACE

          Claude R. Henry, a young attorney of this city, announces his candidacy today for prosecuting attorney of this judicial district, composed of Shelby and Rush counties, subject ot the decision of the Democratic primary.
          Mr. Henry is young in his profession but has during his few years of practice forged his way to the front and has become a conspicuous figure in his practice.  The chances are that ere the convention time arrives that Jonesy will have to hustle some to beat him, for Mr. Henry will allow no grass to grow under his feet in the campaign.

          Martha N. Henry has brought suit for divorce from  Frank Henry, alleging cruel and inhuman treatment as cause of action.  Mrs. Henry also asks for the custody of their five children, and for an order compelling her husband to remain away from her residence in this city.  Mrs. Henry is represented by three attorneys, Messrs. Charles Hack,  Anderville Shaw  and  Harry Horst.  We presume this was done in order to have a crowd in the court room when the case is called.
