on of at of of H. declines recently All the Work of Wlno The McFarland divorce case, It would seem, grow out of tho use of wine. One of tho coldest nights last winter, In February, Mrs. McFarland got up ;\ leap year sleighing party, embracing a number of members of her husband's church, logo toSunbury, Butler county, ton miles from Falrvlow. Thoro wore two sled loads. The party went to tho Wick House, in Sunbury, and there played "Tho Wild Irishman," and, members of tho party say, hud a glorious good time. In the first sled wore Mrs. McFarland and Flndley Campbell, Mr. Fisher and Miss Campbell, anil and Miss Vlrgla Bolllnger and Robert Scott. Mrs. McFarland was driving when the party left Fairvlew, and, Mrs. Bolllnger says, whipped up the horses in great gloe. On the way out.tho story goes, Flndloy Campbell told the minis- tor's wife a little wlno would probably prevent tho party catching cold, and' asked her If the pai'ty would likely take souio. She said she thought not, but that she would take a taste herself. She did so, and also kissed Campbell. Rev. McFarland, the story goes, detected tho wine on his wlfo's breath, and then ^he troubles started that culminated In-their separation, L'cr contra, Peter Bolllnger, a neighbor, though not a member ol Rey. Mc- Farland'H church, says: "Rev. McF/.rJand li«d « habit of saying most cutting and uncalled for things to his wife in the presence of others that was exceedingly unbecoming to n man of his standing and profession. Rev. McFarland has an uncontrollable temper. Ho koops spirits in tho house and takes a glass of boor. Wo have drunk beer together in each other's houses often."
