Wife of Samuel C. Potts
Given Decree on Cross Complaint
          After hearing the evidence in the divorce case of  Samuel C. Potts 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.
          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.  D. L. Wilson represented the defendant and  Elmer Bassett the plaintiff.  The plaintiff did not introduce any witnesses.
