Two more divorce suits were filed in the county clerk’s office yesterday and in both cases the wives are the complaining parties.

The first suit is by Minnie G. Watts seeking divorce from Foster Watts. She alleges they were married November 4, 1908, had one child and were separated in November of 1917. Temporary allowance, custody of the child, a divorce and all other proper relief is sought. Cruel and inhuman treatment and failure to provide are the grounds set forth.  Thomas, Foley and Lindley represent her.  

Zella May Jenkins avers her husband was cruel and inhuman, that he abused her by striking her, calling her profane names and falsely accusing her of improper relations with other men. That he also failed to provide a suitable living for her is also alleged in the complain drawn by Caldwell & Simms. Temporary allowance, a divorce and other proper relief is asked.  Deputy Clerk Homer Schwindler stated yesterday the divorce business in this term of court is unusually heavy with more than 40 cases now on the docket pending action in addition to the number which have been acted on during the current term.
