PRAYERS GOT ON HIS NERVES.
Carpenter Who Created a Scene Arrested on Wife's Complaint.
"Too much religion," said W. E. Askey, 205 South Eight street, Kansas City, Kas., when asked by police Judge Brady yesterday why he couldn't get along with his wife and two daughters, 17 and 20 years old.
I work had as a carpenter," Askey continued, "and when I come home at night I need rest. My family has been attending a revival meeting at Sixth street and Splitlog avenue and instead of letting me rest they surround me on every opportunity and pray. Last night I crawled into the house through a window in the hope I would get to bed and to sleep without being disturbed. When I was discovered in bed by my wife the praying started.
"I got angry and, grabbing a bible I accused all of them of not knowing what 'Pentacost' was. Then they called the police and had me arrested for disturbing the peace."
Askey also testified his wife and daughters often remained at the tabernacle until midnight.
"I'll discharge the defendant," said Judge Brady, "and advise the women to pray harder for him but to pray silently and in another room."
