The Shelbyville Democrat
James Wynne of this city remained an “alfalfa widower” only a few
hours Saturday. On the morning of that day Judge Sparks in the circuit court
granted to Mrs. James Wynne No. 1 a divorce. She had filed suit several weeks
ago against her legal lord, alleging that he had abandoned her, and that he was
an habitual drunkard, and that he had been guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment
toward her. As is customary, Judge Sparks decree granting a legal separation
carried with it the proviso that costs should be paid before the expiration of
the term of court at which it was granted. Mrs. Wynne No. 1 promptly paid the
costs Saturday morning, thus making the decree effective.

Sunset had scarcely arrived before there was a Mrs. James Wynne No. 2.
Saturday afternoon Wynne secured a license authorizing him to take unto himself
as a companion in the rest of his life’s journey, Miss Maude Powers.
The bride is a granddaughter of the late George W. Lazelle, and has
resided on the Knightstown road practically all of her life.
