May 23, 1916 ~ THIS WIFE TOO LOVING.

May 23, 1916

Seeking Divorce, Husband Also Says She's Deaf, Dumb, Partly Blind.

"She's too affectionate," is the principal charge made by Claude D. Ellmaker, 18 years old, in a divorce petition yesterday in the district court against Mable F. Ellmaker, 19 years old.

Ellmaker sets forth in the petition his wife is deaf and dumb and blind in the left eye. He also claims she has hugged and kissed him on the street, on street cars and other public places. Ellmaker also claims she is extremely jealous, and her parents guard him so closely he has no liberties.

They were married here on September 7, 1914, and have resided in Rosedale since.
