Connection J B Patteson Pro Jamestown Kentucky PETITION ANDJUDGMENT Rich Rare and Racy Documents in the Case of Heury Hardin for Divorce Apropbos of the publication of the de cision by Judge Bramlette of the case of Spoon vs Spoon in the Cumberland Circuit Court is the petition and judg ment in a recent case in the Adair Cir cuit Court wherein Henry Hardin was plaintiff and Linnie Hardin and Maggie Campbell alias Maggie Hardin were the defendants The plaintiff by his attorney Mr Rollin Hurt filed the fol a lowing petition viz Adair Circuit Court Henry 1against Petition in Linnie Hardid Equity Maggie CampbellI alias Dfts J The Plaintiff Henry Hardin says that he is entitled to and needs a great deal of relief that he is in the middle of a mighty bad fix because of the wiles and blandishments of females and the peculiar laws relating to marriage and divorce and the uncertainty of the opinions of lawyers upon said subjects and his own ignorance and credulity that he is between fifty and sixty years of agethe exact age he does not knowand is alone in the world and in the language of the song of the woman whom Mingo Park heard singing in the jungles of darkest AfricaHe has no wife to give him milk and no woman to grind him cornalthough during his lifetime he has led two blushing damsels to the altar of Hymen both of whom are still living and doing well and from neither of whom has he any legal warrant of separation and to add to his other miseries the minions of the criminal laws threaten him with prosecution for bigamy He says that in all these transactions he has tried to conform to the utmost requirements of the laws and thought that he had done so but has now learned for the first time that the statutes relating to limitations and possessions which are wont to extend so much comfort to un fortunates and derelicts have no effect upon the laws of matrimony and di vorce and he therefore appeals to the court to extricate him from his marital difficulties and to define his status to determine how much he has been mar ried and to what extent he is now married and to relieve him from all the burdens of the situation He says that he and the defendant Linnie Har din are both residents of Adair County Kentucky and have continuously re sided in said county and State for more than forty years last past The de fendant Maggie Campbell alias Mag gie Hardin resided in said county and State continuously for about forty years until about three years ago when she went to the State of Indiana and has lived there ever since and is now residing there vHe and the de fendant Maggie Hajdin resided in Adair County Kentucky at the time they were married as will be hereafter stated and during all the time there after until she went to live in Indiana The transactions marriages sepa rations and actions hereinafter stated and complained of all ccurred and ext isted in this State and the cause of di vorce and annullment of marriage bonds hereinafter state occurred and existed in this State and the causes of divorce and annullment of marriage bonds hereinafter stated occurred and existed in this State and within five years last past He says that about 30 or 31 years ago in the year 1874 or 1875 he does not know exactly which and does not now remember in Adair County Kentucky he and the defend and Linnie Hardin were legally mar ried and they lived together as hus band and wife for a short time when she forgetful of the seventh command ment became enamored of other men who being somewhat over appreciative of the provisions of the 13th 14th and 12th amendments of the Federal Con stitution and the Civil Rights Bill could not be restrained and he and the said Llnnie separated and have lived separate and apart without cohabita tion ever since for a period of more than five years last past viz for a period of thirty years The said Linnie after some children by other individ uals intermarried with one John Har din by whom she raised a considerable family The said John Hardin is now deadThe plaintiff says that after the sep aration of himself and the said Linnie he tried the joys of single blessedness for several years and about twenty years ago he sought the advice of a man learned in the law as to what steps he should take to be legally sep arated and divorced from said Linnie whereupon said attorney advised the plaintiff that if he and Linnie remained separate and apart for five years that said fact divorced him from the bonds of matrimony with Linnie and that he could then marry again The plaintiff is an ignorant unlearned man and he believed and relied upon said statement Thereafter the defendant Lin nie filed a suit for divorce from the bonds of matrimony with him in this court and thereafter he was informed that a divorce had been granted He being unable to either read or write and unacquainted with the courts and their ways fully believed that said di vorce was granted and did not learn better until within the present year when he learned for the first time that a divorce was not granted and that said suit had been dismissed without any judgment having been rendered He refers to said suit and the records and orders made in same and makes them a part hereof The plaintiff believing in good faith that He had been restored to all the rights and privileges of an unmarried man as above stated thereafter on the day of188 fell a victim to the ensnarements of the defendant Maggie Campbell alias Maggie Hardin and he and she were married in this county on said day and thereafter lived to gether as husband and wife in said county until about three years ago when without fault upon his part she left and abandoned him and went away to the Mecca of all colored Kentuck ians vizIndianapolis Indiana where she could enjoy the poetic inspirations of James Whitcomb Riley and listen to the croakings of the turtle upon the Wabash and he and she have lived separate and apart without cohabita tion ever since for a period of more than one year before the bringing of this suit vizthree years He says that since his last Dulcemea abandoned him and in fact during the present year he has learned for the first time that no judgment has ever been rendered by any court dissolving the bonds of matrimony existing be tween him and the Defendant Linnie Hardin and that the license granted him by the County Clerk to marry Maggie Campbell and the solemnization of the rites and ceremonies of matrimony between him and the Dft Maggie Campbell alias Hardin is as soundingcymbal advised but on account of the previous mishaps of which he has been a victim he has become distrustful of mankind as well as womankind and he fears that his marriage to Maggie may be valid enough to get him into the penitentiary or into some other predicament from which he will have trouble Verily verily he is a man of sorrow andacquainted with grief He says that no children were born to him and the Dft Maggie and that since learn ing that his marrige to her is void he has not lived or cohabited with herin fact he has not seen her and she had already theretofore refused to return to him or to rest under his vine and treeWherefore he prays the court to ad judge that he be divorced from the bonds of matrimony with the Dft Linnie Hardin and that the marriage between him and the Dft Maggie Campbell alias Maggie Hardin be ad judged to be void and annulled and that he be restored to the rights of an Ii unmarried nan and for all proper re lief general and specialHENRY HARDIN In this case at the recent term of the Circuit Court Judge H C Baker of that court entered the following de creeHenry Hardin Plff 1 vsILinnie Hardin In Equity Maggie Campbell DftsJ This is anovel proceeding in that plaintiff seek to get a release or qui etus from two women at one and the same timeso far as the court knows it is without a precedent The plain tiff with a frankness unusual in the courts of law or courts of love comes and in his petition says I will a round unvarnished tale de liver of my whole course of love It appears from the pleadings and the evidence in the case that some thirty or thirtyone years ago loving not wisely but too well he wooed and won a dusky maiden answering to the name of Linnie He said to her Come live with me and be my love And we will all the pleasures prove and she came The matrimonial knot was duly and regularly tied andall went merry as a marriage bell for the space of one year when hearken ing to the voice and seductive words ot- a gay Lothario she turned her back to her first love who was left lamenting 0 Woe is me to have seen what I have seen A suit was brought for the purpose of dissolving the matrimonial bonds be tween them but for some cause the proceedings never reached to a judg ment and of the failure to enter a judgment the plaintiff was ignorant In the meantime plaintiff lived and luxuriated in single blessedness while his quondam bride believing that she was free remarried and became the mother of childrenso numerous that a witness says there is so J many of them you would have to blow a horn to get them together Time passed on some dozen or more years when plaintiff being possessed again of the grand passion sought and under the forms of law secured the companion ship of one Maggie Campbell Here again the evidences discloses as the poet had long ago declared The course of true love never did run smooth For some cause not shown Maggie has left plaintiff discon solate and hied away to Africas Mecca the city of Indianapolis state of In diana where all good niggers go before or after death Now in this case the plaintiff through his counsel is piteously wringing his hands tear ing his hair and exclaiming What mighty yills have not been done by woman 1 Who betrayed the capitol woman Who lost Mark Antony a world a womanWho was the cause of a long ten years war and laid at last old Troy in ashes a woman Destructive damnable deceitful womanThe father of Linnies children is dead and she was never legally mar ried to him Maggie has absconded and she and plaintiff were never legally married The plainiff comes into court for relief He sees Maggie on one side Linnie on the other the peniten tiary in front and Linnies children all around He claims that he is dazed and bewildered by the matrimonial complexities which encompass him all about and he asks an adjudication as to his status and especially a release from the disabilities which interfere with his freedom of action in the fu tureThe cause having been heard and duly considered the court is of the opinion that his relation with Maggie are of no legal effect except to the extent of the criminial law which may or may not be ivoked in view of the peculiar and mitigating circumstances attending the case The said marriage with Maggie is annulled The court is of the opinion that in view of lapse of time since Linnie left him and the incumbrances which she has placed upon his property rights in her it would be unjust to burden him with them It is therefore adjudged that the nuptial knot which tied them together benow untied and that he be restored to all the rights privilege and joys of an unmarried man but with the injunction that this does not include the right to two wives at onetime A Mountain of Gold could not bringas much happiness to Mrs of

that he must again live in the future for a short period build air castlesm a that which he hopes to accomt plish So it is with the paper man and in keeping wit the natural order of things when one years work has been completed to outline the scope of an other Not unmindful of the varied and shifting incidents of th past nine years the many sa failures and few happy hits the slow but constant building of the News we find pleasure in in troducing the first issue of its tenth year In looking over it past it seems but a span since i made its initial bow to the public and pledged a life of devotion and J usefulness to Southern Kentucky but that event was nine years ago At that time the News ha only a future and that in the minds of many was beset with almost difficulties and True it was that grave confronted it and many worry ing propositions beset its path J but the time has passed almost on meteoric wings and today we present it in its youthful vigor proud of its past and game enough to meet any foe who may seek to invade and retard advancement in the fields of its op eration In the past it has neverI wavered in its efforts for up building and advancement of this part of

of this part of the State of Columbia and Adair county A newspaper is not an object of charity neither should- it be the packhorse for the burdens of any community without just compensation It should be rewarded in proportion to its worth and serve in fullmeasure in proportion to its patronage and evidence of its appreciation In view of this fact we desire to state that at present the News has never hada healthier growth and never faced better indications ofa prosperous fu increasd to merit the same we present it this week reduced one column in size but localized throughout The

party authority will never again be so blind to logical results Mr Watersons advice to call the primary off would have been much better for the party One of the most important fea tures of a local paperthe main one to determine its true worth is the amount of local news giv en and the manner in which it is served Realizing the import ance of better serving the many readers of the News we have
