THE LAS^ OF OADY, The Man of Divorce Court Fame Gives a Farewell Scene— Catty and Mrs. Cady Disagree. . The Lu Verne Cadys, whose divorce case diverted the county a year 'ago, have gone to Minnesota. As they packed out of Ltvermore they gave a farewell scene, which the Gazette describes: Just a few hours before their departure Wednesday for Minnesota, and after their car was all packed with their household goods, the question of buying their tickets came up, Mr, Cady said that he was paying the entire freight on the goods and that his wife must buy her own ticket. This she refused to do. and she forthwith flew down the road, attached to a poodle dog with a string, her boy leading the possession with his bicycle. Arriving at the car she vaulted in at one jiirnp, and in another moment the air was filled with pillows, carpets, bedding and other items of her individual household furniture which she ejected from the car. Pat Murphy acted as peacemaker, however, and convinced Mr. Cady that it would be cheaper for him to buy her ticket than to pay further storage on the car. He compromised the matter by getting her a ticket as far as Minneapolis, where we may look to see hostilities resumed. To Be Happy buy a Parker fountain pen. Solid gold, 14 k.
