Decrees of divorce were granted by District Judge J. J. Smith to 17 of 19 plaintiffs who presented their cases in court at Tuesday's default session. All of the suits for divorce heard were of the non-contested class, where the defendant does not appear to deny the allegations of the party asking the decree. The two cases in which the court did not allow a divorce were not dismissed, but set over until a later date for further consideration.

Divorces were granted the following:

Leone from Roy Conner, James from Ethel Birmingham, Marie from Linnel Boswell, Julian from Ida Carroll, Flossie from Floyd Flippins, Miliard from Mattie Gordon, Grace from J. C. Hall, Ida May from Frank Campbell, L. C. Hall from Goldie Hall, Margaret from Elmer Henry, Nora from William Smith, Elmer from Maude Whitemarsh, Ethel from Tanda Sharpe, Lilunie from Henry Harvey, Cora from Charles Spraggins and Charles from Jessie Cuzan.

A divorce suit was filed yesterday in district court by Mrs. Hattie Henderson, justice of peace at Picher, against her husband, H. L. Henderson, former Picher mayor.

In the petition, Mrs. Henderson charges her husband with cruelty, alleging that he has threatened to kill her and her two daughters, that he has cursed her and made it necessary for her to leave home to protect herself, and that it was necessary for her to support herself and family while working while she was not in the home.

Mrs. Henderson asks for the custody of the only child under age, Mary Henderson, who is 17 years old.

F. W. Church of Miami is the plaintiff's attorney.
