against Carrie O. Potts, Judge Blair asked the defendant if it would ever
be possible for them to live together again, and she replied that it would not.
He then granted her a divorce on her cross complaint and the custody of the two
children, Irene and Rexel. The parties reside near Fountaintown.

DEFENDANT GRANTED DIVORCE
Wife of Samuel C. Potts
Given Decree on Cross Complaint
Potts brought suit for divorce some time ago, alleging cruel and inhuman
treatment and that his wife was a person of high temper, brutal and dirty. She
then filed a cross complaint charging neglect, failure to provide and misconduct
of several kinds.
They were married February 14, 1907, and separated December 23, 1911.
Wilson represented the defendant and Elmer Bassett the plaintiff. The plaintiff
did not introduce any witnesses.
