Wants a Divorce from the Man Who Tried to Kill Her
Mrs.Tillie Robinson who was shot and seriously wounded a few days ago by her husband, Paul Robinson, yesterday began an action against him for divorce. The shooting took place on Jan. 19, in the office of Attorney Schwartz on East Washington street, where Mrs. Robinson was employed as stenographer. Mrs. Robinson says she was married on Dec. 15, 1897. She avers that shortly after her marriage her husband began to show a trifling and quarrelsome disposition. She says he failed to support her properly and would go away and leave her destitute of means of support. She also charges that he was inclined to be fond of other woman. She avers that as soon as learned of his conduct she declined to live with him longer. Their trouble culminated on Jan. 19 when he walked into the office of Lawyer Schwartz and, finding his wife there at work, fired at her. The bullet took effect and she was painfully wounded.
