Turkey and Bulgaria Sign Treaty.

nople say that Turkey and Bulgaria
have signed a new treaty Turkey
granting 'Bulgaria her desired direct
railroad connection with tho sea. and
Bulgaria agreeing to observe a bo
nevolent neutrality. Tnls Is accord

Court reports from over the Hltc
indicate that wife-abandonment law
passed by the last legislature is prov-
ing a great husband-tamer and a won-
derful convenience to the woman with
an unruly hubby. In many parts of
the state notably on the east side
women are using It with telling effect.
The law provides for a jail sentence
'.o a man who inserts his wife. The
women ore beginning to learn about
tho law and when they are not treated
right they take advantage of it. If
husband gets miffed and stays away
for a week Mrs. Wife can get busy
and have him arrested for desertto.i.
After he spends a few days In Jail he
is wiling to agree to most anything to
have her dismiss tho charge. "The
law is certainly the one 'best bet made
by the last legislature" said County
Judge John D. Chappelle today. "It
fs certainly effective in the case of a
recalcitrant husband." "Even though
the law at times Is used for selfish
purposes it is nevertheless a good law
and has a lenedeney to prevent whole
sale desertions as has been the prac
tice in former years when thero was
no law covering the offense" said
County Attorney Swank who lias de
clared that he will vigorously prosecute
under its provisions.
