          Katherine Lemasters,  defendant in a suit for divorce filed by  William H. Lemasters,  today filed a cross-complaint, in which she asks for a divorce, custody of their children, and $2,000 alimony.  McDaniel and Myers are her attorneys.  She charges that her husband is lazy, that he refused to work and support her or the children, and that he left them.  Mrs. Lemasters says that her husband moved here from a farm in order that the children might secure work, and that later he proposed that they move to Indianapolis where they would get more money.  When they moved, Mrs. Lemasters says that her husband told her that he would come later, but that afterwards he refused to do so, saying that he did not care for her and that he did not want to be bothered with her or the children.

ANNULS  A  MARRIAGE
BECAUSE  BRIDE  IS  MINOR
----------
Indiana Judge Gives Stiff Interpretation
to New Laws.
----------
Indianapolis, Nov. 11.—Popular pilgrimages of Indiana young couples to several Gretna Greens in Kentucky will be interrupted by an interpretation today of recent amendments to Indiana marriage laws by Judge Sparks, of the Shelby county court at Shelbyville.
          Veria Lemasters, 16 years old, and  Forrest Mauley  eloped to Louisville last spring and were married.  They returned and the youthful Mrs. Mauley called upon her guardian, Wilbur O. Stafford, for a settlement of her inheritance.  He refused and the controversy was taken into court.  Judge Sparks today annulled the marriage because, Miss Lemasters had not authoritative consent to her marriage.
          Many persons not of mature age have in the last few months secretly journeyed from Indiana to Kentucky cities to be married without the consent that the new laws demand.
