ST. PAUL  WOMAN        
            Mrs. Gladys Owens, of St. Paul, has filed a complaint in the Decatur circuit court at Greensburg, for a divorce from  Milikin Owens, Jr.  Mrs. Owens also demands the custody of their son, eight years old, and an allowance for the support of the child.  The complaint sets out that Mr. Owens was very jealous of the plaintiff and refused to permit her to associate with friends or neighbors.  He unjustly accused her of being intimate, Mrs. Owens alleges.  A general charge of cruel and inhuman treatment is made.  The couple was married September 10, 1914, and separated in July, this year.
