John Hoff Successful in Quest—Van Houten Case Dismissed.

Mandan, N. D., Feb. 8.—Two divorce cases were brought before Judge S. L. Nuchols of the district court during the week. The action brought by Emily Van Houten vs. Jogn Van Houten, was dismissed for lack of prosecution, neither party being present in court.

A divorce was granted to John Hoff of Elgin from his wife, Catherine Hoff. Attorney H. R. Berndt of Elgin was the counsel for the former. The decree was granted on the grounds of desertion. Mrs. Hoff is at present in Canada.
