The Cooper Divorce
En in Morning .Nowa:
Tbe Cooper divorcc case which has
been on in the Superior court tor the
past fou. days was completed yester-
day afternoon after the arguments
mi both sides and Judge Huett hand-
ed down part of his decision, giving
.Mrs. Cooper a decree of divorce and
the custody of her live children but
reserved his opinion on the division of
their property until Wednesday
morning at nine o'clock. Mr. and
Mrs Cooper, who have for several
years ilived between Garber and Cov-
ington, have accumulated about
813,COO worth of property and the
division of it was the hardest fought
quest.on during the trial. Mrs.
Cooper asked in her petition for the
custody of her children and the major
portion of their holdings, real and
The case has been one of the hard-
est fought divorce suits in the history
of county. In handing down his
decisions Judge Huett said that neith-
er of the principals in the suit were
wholly blameless for what occured in
their family to cause the divorce:
ti at giving the live little childreu who
would now have to light life 3 bittlo
without the care and protection of one
or the other of their parents the proper
education and moral training was the
one important matter to determine
anil that the division of the property
was a secondary consideration.
He said he intended that a.sufliicient
Who Got the Bones?
This town has been exceptionally
free from theives and we have often
boasted of the fact. One reason we
offer is that we are off of a main line
and the floaters, yeguien, an J hoboes
seldim hit our burg, And it surprised
us that one night last week some
one disobeyed the Bibilical injunction :
'Thou shall not steal "
Last Thursday .J. S. Hruce, butchered
a hog out on the farm and brought It
to town- A five gallon jar was•lilled j
with the boues with nearly all t.be ;
meat taken oil, and placed in the cave.
Sometime during the night, alightji^l
fingered person carefully removed the Wl .
bone from the jar and put ttie articles j ^1
that were holding the lid down back |*>
in place again.
The bones were of little value and
if the thief was real hungry he would
have received a decent mess if he had
simply asked for it. ,
We tell ol this to warn the citizens
of Garber that there is some one here
that should not be tempted with fresh

amount. Judge Huett said lie hoped
that as long :<s he was ou tie bench
of the supejior court in this county
he would never have another case like
it to decide. He said he hoped he
could say a word that would effect a
reconciliation but fts theKttorneys for
eac"i side had previously stated such a
thing was imdossible It was useless
for him to think of it. Judge llueit
then asked that the attorneys for each
side assist him in making the division
of the property.
Wednesday morning Judge lluett
handed down the decision as to the
division of the property: Mrs.Cooper
aud children received the deeded farm
and a portion of property also 815 per
month alimony for ten months, after
that.810 per month for a period. Mr.
Cooper has the school section and
some other property left him.
Wednesday's Enid Eagle says:
Mrs. Bell Cooper, the plaintiff, was
by far the winner in the case. At
nine o'clock this morning Judge
Huett delivered the judgement of the
court granting Mrs. Cooper a divorce.
She was awarded the home farm sub
ject to the mortgage against it, three
houses ou the place, the stock, the
farming implements and household
goods. It was also ordered that the
defendant pay fifty dollars for the
present needs of the family, and fif-
teen dollars a month for ten months,
and thereafter ten dollars a month
for ten months; the defendant is to
pay the costs of the action aud the
attorney's fees of 8500.
The five minor children which were
probably Hie primary consideration
iu the trial of the case, were awarded
to the mother for their care, custody
and suppoit. The court decreed,
however, that, the dei'endaut visit
