BAHR,  MR.  &  MRS.  J. H.

Their five children in the State Orphans' home in Atchison, Mrs. J. H. Bahr has filed suit in the district court at Hiawath for a divorce from her husband, who, she alleges has worked but little since they moved to Hiawatha from a farm near Hamlin.  The children were sent to the home following a hearing in the probate court at Hiawatha in which it was contended the parents could not properly care for them.  Mrs. Bahr's petition says they were married at Falls City, lived there several years, and then moved to the farm near Hamlin.  Mr. Bahr was ejected from the farm by the sheriff and shortly after moving to Hiawathe was again dispossessed by officers.  A short time ago he was arrested and sent to jail for 30 days on a charge of passing a worthless check.  The five children are: Mabel, 11; Thelma, 10; Virgil, 9; Gertrude, 6, and Delmo, 3.  Mrs. Bahr had been working for meager wages which were insufficient to support the family.
