Reconciliation Effected
Between Husband and Wife
          The divorce proceedings brought by  Lida Belle Jacobs  against her husband,  Thomas J. Jacobs, were this afternoon dismissed by Mrs. Jacobs, and the cross-complaint filed by her husband was also withdrawn.  Mrs. Jacobs, since separating from her husband, has had ill luck, and it is said she is now in the last stages of consumption.  She was here this week and the court ordered Mr. Jenkins [?] to pay her fifteen dollars within five days.  It was thought that the woman would have to be taken to the poor farm as her friends all deserted her, even her relatives in Indianapolis telling her that they could no longer keep her.  She will spend her last days with her husband, who resides in the St. Vincent neighborhood, Mr. Jacobs coming to town this morning and returning with his wife.
