J. C. McLean, of Anderson, Ind., discovers that his wife is of a too-loving nature. [more]
A social sensation was recently caused in Anderson, Ind., when Grocer J. C. McLean handed his wife a check for $700, escorted her to the train for Paris, Ill., her former home, and then went back home and filed suit for divorce. McLean had discovered his wife in a loving attitude with James Benson, who lodged at McLean’s. She was sitting on Benson’s lap. McLean said not a word, but at once consulted a lawyer. Mrs. McLean was a leader in society and church affairs, and is a handsome woman. Her husband is broken-hearted over the affair. Benson, the cause of the separation, is a clerk in a shoe store.
