Madison Spain Makes Sensational Charges In Answer to His Wife's Petition for Divorce.
THREW GREASE ON HIM -- Madison Spain, through his attorneys, Hoopes & Robinson, on Monday filed a sensational answer and cross petition to his wife's suit for divorce. Spain says that he is guilty of slapping his wife on different occasions but this was done in self defense, and that sometime during the month of March 1906, his wife threw a plate of grease on him, and a cup and saucer at him, beat him over the head with a poker, in June 1907 and that she has repeatedly threatened to kill him, and continually carries a revolver, and states she will kill the defendant. Spain says that his wife has been guilty of gross neglect of duty since October 1906, in that she has wholly failed to cohabit with him and during this time she has refused to even converse with him, but has lived in his house, separate and apart from him, and had refused to cook his meals and care for his house, although able to do so. Spain avers that his wife uses vulgar and profane language in the presence of their children such as unfit to be seen in print. Spain asks that the prayer of his wife's petition for alimony be refused, and that upon the final hearing he may be given the decrees and the custody of the minor children, and hold his real and personal property.
