Bismarck is coming pretty well to the front as a divorce center. Last spring a couple came to the city from the east, and took up residence here. The woman was married, but the marital bonds chafed. The man was not married, but wanted to be—to the woman. They staid here during the summer, and last week the woman was unmarried from the man she didn't want. The she was married to the man she did want, and the pair went east Saturday night, rejoicing.
