Mrs. Linconie Balnuru has filed a
petition iu the district court asking a
divorce from her husband, Albert S
Balnum, and the custody of the clilld-
len. The petiliou tells a sad story.
It recites the fact that they were
married at Moran, Kansas, on De-
cember 22. 1881, and lived there and
in that vicinity uutil September 1891,
when the husband left the wife and
family and came to Oklahoma, and
from that time uutil the spring fol-
lowing made no provision for their
support and did not contribute a ccut
towards their livelihood—leaving
tbem to the cold mercies of the world
w hile he spent Ills money in riotous
living in Oklahoma City In saloons
and with prostitutes. Finally, after
urgent appeals from the wife, he
brought her and family to Oklahoma
City, but continued Ills abuse and cru-
elty, and finally wound up by eloping
with a prostitute, taking with him
his employer's money, and Is now a
fugitive from Justice. The fruits of
the marriage are four children aged
10, 8, 6 and 2 years, with one child
dead since the husband left. If ever
woman had good grounds for divorco
it Is Mrs. Balnum. She Is a lady who

know her and the hearty sympathy of

to the bar at Lyous, Kansas, March
26, 1883, and moved to Des Moines,
Iowa, which city waa founded by his
uncle, Alexander Scott. Here he
formed a partnership with James
Embree, and commenced tbe practice
of law. Iu February, 1885, he again
moved back to Lyous where l.e formed
a partnership with his law preceptor,
William J. Fuller. In February 1888,
he was appointed register of the Un-
ited States land office at Larned, Kan-
sas, and served until May 18U0. In
the fall of 1889, he was run on the
democratic ticket for judge of the
Sixth Judicial district, and though
elected by 167 majority on the face of
the returns the supreme court of the
state, by a purely political decision,
awarded the seat to his competitor by
a majority tf llvg votes. Since that
lime the case has been reversed and
had not J udge Scott become a non-
resident he would have been seated
upon the rendering of the yerdict.
In the fall of 1890 Judge Scott was
tendered the nomination for congress
in the Seventh Congressional District
of Kansas, butdeclined, realizing that
a combination on Jerry Simpson was
the only means of defeatiug the re-
publican candidate. Upon vacating
the register's office Judge Scott op-
ened a law office in Kansas City, Mo.,
where he remained until January,
1892, when lie came to Oklahoma and
opened up his present business. His
practice has been large from the very
start. He was attorney for tbe I
National bank of Oklahoma until its j
failure, and since then he has been
the attorney and legal adviser of the
Firot National bank and the vastcon-
cerns of the T. M. Richardson Lum-
In 1886 Judge Scolt w is married to
the daughter of William J. Fuller
and has one boy, three years old. Mrs.
Scott is now in Chicago attending the
world's fair and will no doubt feel
highly elated over the honor conferred
upon her talented young husband.
Judge Scott is also well known as
an author of several legal works, and
lias the manuscript prepared for an-
other forthcoming publication.

A Pitiful Scene.
A pitiful scene took place in the
hall of the district court building to-
day says the K1 Reno Herald. It was
tbe result of the habeas corpus pro-
ceedings before Judge Burford, in
which Cora Brown, a divorced wife,
brings action for the recovery of her
two little girls. Judge Kirkpatrick
appeared for the divorced husband
and Frank Danford appeared for the
mother. The children had been in
tile custody of the father, but Judge
Burford ruled .that the mother was
the proper custodian of the children.
Twotrijht, prettv little girls were
taken into the hall and stripped of
their pretty attire by the father and
aunt. The little children cried pit-
eously, saying to the mother, "1 do
not like you, 1 will kill you." But
the pretty clothes were removed aud
the mother brought her valine and
took therefrom poor dresses and put
tbem on the girls and left the build-
ing. All the time the little girls
