T.P. FULTON, in his petition asking for a judicial separation from his
wife, ORPHA, alleges that he was married in Decatur County, December
25th, l89l. Plaintiff says that defendant has been guilty of cruel and
inhuman treatment, such as throwing hot water on him and drawing a
revolver and threatening to kill him. He therefore asks to be restored
to all the rights of an unmarried person. C.W. HOFFMAN is his attorney.
Oh yes, I looked in Webster's for the meaning of the word - AVERS..--it
means: to assert with confidence; to declare. (another new word for me).
