Sigvart Olsen, who lives at Larimore, was granted a divorce from Evaline E. Olsen, on a charge of desertion. There was no appearance on the part of the wife, and he was given a decree of divorce, while she was given the custody of a 16-year-old son, Robert Olsen. Several depositions were presented, one of them being that of a woman who at one time lived with the Olsens. She stated that Mrs. Olsen was a common scold and fault-finder. They were married at Cokato, Minn., in 1874, and she gave her husband notice that if he did not desist from the use of whisky and quinine, for medicine, that she would leave him. She left and he asked for a divorce. O. A. Wilcox appeared as his attorney.
