Excerpt: ...that the shutters were shut, the doors locked and he went back to a friend of his and stayed there for another day; went back home again and it was still closed and it was the third day after' his return when, as he says, he went to work and broke in the door and went inside, and his wife was not there.

In all material matters con-nected with the relations between them the wife emphatically denied every one of the accusations contained in the petition or testified to and in a very great many of them she is corroborated in her denial by the testimony of others. According to his own testimony the quarrelling between these parties commenced a year after their marriage.

But they lived together from May, 1.895, to May, 1910--were even at the time of the trial living in the same house. Two sons were born to them of the marriage.
