Mrs. Ella B. Scott Filed Complaint
Against Martin Scott In Court Here
----------
MARRIED  THIRTY-FIVE  YEARS
----------
          A complaint for a divorce, alimony of $5,000, and allowance of $10 a week and a restraining order prohibiting her husband from disposing of any of his property pending the hearing of the suit, was filed today in the Shelby Circuit Court by  Mrs. Ella B. Scott, of Sugar Creek township, against  Martin Scott, a well known farmer of that township. Ed K. Adams represents Mrs. Scott.
          The couple was married in 1888 and separated December 6, 1923. They are the parents of four children, all more than twenty-one years of age.  Mrs. Scott says that her husband has a violent temper, and that he cursed her.
          She charges that he refused to permit her to visit her relatives and would not allow them to call on her at her home.  Religious differences also entered into the trouble, according to Mrs. Scott, who alleges that her husband would not permit her to attend her church.  She is a member of the Roman Catholic Church.
          The plaintiff says that her husband was morose and sullen and that at times he refused to speak to her.  On December 2, 1923, she charges that her husband struck her and told her to do as he wanted her to do or to get out.  She states that her husband owns eighty acres of land, valued at $40,000 and that he has personal property valued at $1,000.  Mrs. Scott says that she is fifty-six years old and has no means of support.
