Troubles Were Being Heard
In Court This afternoon
          The evidence in the divorce suit brought by  Nicholas Shadley  against his wife,  Nora B. Shadley, was being heard this afternoon when the Republican went to press.
          Shadley stated that at one time his wife went to the home of  Mr. Gray, a neighbor; that she borrowed a rifle and then returned to the house.  She had told Gray that she was going to shoot a rabbit.  When she arrived home she shot a cat and told Shadley she would do the same thing for him.
          The complaint was brought by  Nicholas Shadley some time ago.  It alleged that his wife was guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment for the past ten years; that she was morose, cross and sullen without cause.  The plaintiff stated that she was continually nagging and that she refused to prepare his meals.  In 1901 she left her home for several days and went to Decatur county.  Then they moved to this city and she left here.  She had wanted him to move to Indianapolis.  He also stated that when they resided in the country the woman would come to this city and remain until late at night and when she would return home he would ask her where she had been and she would reply that it was none of his business, that what he didn’t know wouldn’t hurt him.  He alleged in the complaint that the defendant at one time threatened to break every bone in his body.
          They were married April 12, 1900, and separated October 25, 1911.
          Judge Blair granted the plaintiff a divorce upon payment of costs.
