BOSTON POgT, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1921 WIFE DID NOT WANT ALIMONY / Is Perfectly Satisfice With Getting Divorce T'ALL RIVER, Jan. 4.—“The courts today do not consider a woman a slave as the medieval man considered his wife,” said Judge Dubuque in granting the young and pretty petitioner, Mrs. Elvvina A. NTanchester, daughter of the late Captain Hammond, a divorce from John li. Manchester. PAID NO RETAINER The libellee appeared In court to contest the case without a lawyer. He stated that he had engaged Judge Brady of Attleboro to defend him but that the Judge had withdrawn at the last moment. “Had you paid him a retainer?” asked Judge Dubuque. “No.” “That’s probably tlie reason he isn’t here/’ said the court. Manchester hadn't the slightest Idea what his Income la. He states that he is a partner in the M. C. Garland Com- r>any of Brockton, and is promoting the “Silver Black J’ox IJmited” securities. His wife testified he beat her up and wouldn’t furnish her meat, though the house wa.s well stocked with other foods. He was not a vegetarian either. He played cards all night, she said. The case was abruptly concluded when the securities salesman said he had gained 20 pounds since his wife left him. “You ought to be happy then,” commented the court. "I am,” replied the libellee. “Wliy are you contesting the case, then?” asked the court. “To avoid paying alimony,” he answered. “We don't w'ant any; only a divorce,” interrupted Mrs. Manchester’s attorney, “Granted,” concluded the Judge.

But he’s an American now’; retired recently from active war service with the United States navy, and resides in Searsport. Me. The good II. S. S. Ozama came to Kiltie’s native kitchen on the Isle of Arran, near Glasgow’, in 1918, and by so doing changed Kiltie’s career considerably. A big machinist’s mate named Melvin Thompson fancied the kitten and took him aboard ship under his coat. Adventure with a big “A” began for the six-day-old kitten from that day. He went through three submarine zones safely. He won the undying devotion of every gob on board. Supplies were low and Kiltie remembers well the night when he heard there were only three cans of condensed milk aboard, and that it wras to be no plain gob bill of fare, but was to be reserved j for the little .Scotch kitten. This, in the face of court-martial if caught. Upon his arrival at Norfolk, Va., Thompson got a big crate. Kiltie, given farewell pats by a hundred hands, was shipped to Searsport, Me., to the home of Captain Pendleton, a seagoing man who could realize what a seagoing cat had been through. I-'or a w’eek Kiltie was on the road without food or drink and arrived “all in,” but the bracing Maine air and good milk worked wonders and now’ Kiltie holds his owm with any cat in the neighborhood. His one weakness is peanuts, and folks laugh because he eats the shell and let’s the nut go untouched. Except for this extravagance Kiltie is real Scotch and makes a thoroughgoing cleanup of ail daily rations. His master attributes his peanut wastefulness to sb.ell shock, due to long periods in the submarine zone.

Not Recognized by Third Internationale MEXICO CITY, Jan. 4.—Tw’o labor eongresats probably will meet in Mexico City next week, one the regularly constituted convention of the Pan-American Federation of I>abor and the other a protest demonstration which -was called today by dissenting members of the Federation. The American Federation of T.,abor appears to be the rock upon which tlie factions are splitting. Poster's appeared in the city today announcing that the American Federation of Labor has not been recognized by the Third Interna tionale of Moscow, of which, says the poster, the Pan-American congress Is an adherent. Jan. 10 Is the date set for the protest convention to begin. It also is the day when the Federation congress Is to open Its session, and the prospects are that the two conventions will be functioning simultaneously. Beyond the bare announcement tbat the sessions will be held In a downtow’n theatre, the local members of the Pan- American Federation are silent as to the programme.

Syracuse has rowed to the top of the regular college river and stayed there tor some time under the crafty tutelage of the Ten Eyck family. Harvard, on the other hand, has been satisfied to limit its glory to battles with Yale and celebrate in that ecia victory over the Blue. With the Crimson stepping out to do battle with the “big guns,” however, college rowing should climb a peg, or perhaps two. Harvard wants to meet Syracuse on the w’ater.

No definite date has been set, but if the fresh water oarsmen from the salt water city like the bid the figures can be attached later. SHANGHAI 89 COURT ST.
