After shouldering the responsibilities of married life for a month and a few days, Alexander Beedie this morning in the Lawrence circuit court filed suit through his attorney, R. L. Mellen, to have the marriage annulled, says the Bedford Mail. His bride, according to the complaint, was Miss Emily Anderson.
It is alleged in the complaint that the couple was married May 29th, 1914. That the plaintiff was only sixteen years of age and from want of age was incapable of contracting the said marriage.
It was further alleged that on July 5th, the plaintiff separated from the defendant. That the defendant's name was Emily Anderson. It is the plaintiff's plea that the defendant be permitted to resume her former name.
