This is the matter-of'fact an

The Groesbecks were introduced
to Hi-nd by capitalists in the Des

They acquired a pleasant cottage
and Mr. Groeslnjck became connect

led to material restriction of his
sphere of inrliiciice. In liquor he

wat artial to liquor. When under
this influence his native reckless
ness was amaxiugly iucrensed, and
fire arms, axes and other imple
ments of violelice were treely used
by him. Finally last Saturday
uight Mrs. Groesbeck was forced to
cek at the home ot a neighbor
protection from her huiband, who
had beaten her until her life was in
danger and threw her out of the
house. Then it developed that
that was not the first of her ex
jieriences of that nature. She re
luctantly came to the conclusion
that she could, not endure that sort
of life. Friends arranged for her
departure and she left Monda
morning for the homuof her mother
in Hostoti. '
No reason or excuse whatever
was given for mistreatment of the
woman only the devilikh act of a
man crazed by liquor. "I wish
you would'nt say I bent her with a
scantling." was alt Groesbeck had
to say about it when he had become
measurably Sobered. "As to her
luture support my solicitor 111 Lon

Groesbeck had the general respect
and esteem of the community.
