MAJOR'S WEALTHY WIFE. An American judge's daughter, Mrs. Mary Madeline Hall, with an income of L10,000 a year, was on Monday divorced by her husband, Major Charles Spencer Hall, retired, residing at Evercreech, Somerset, formerly in the Oxford Light Infantry. There was no defence. j The marriage took place at St. George's, Hanover-square, in 1902, and Mrs. Hall soon afterwards went to America. It was arranged I that Major Hall should 1"0 out later, but on his arriving rather unexpectedly the wife declined to live with him. Evidence showed that Mrs. Hall went to Providence, Rhode Island, and having obtained domicile, divorced her husband on the allegation of neglect to provide. As the lady had EIO,000 a year and the major only £ 500 that was rather far-fetched, counsel thought. Then she married Mr. Herbert Mel- ville Harriman—a bigamous marriage, said counsel, as Major Hall was a domiciled English- man. Other evidence showed that Mrs. Hall was a daughter of Judge Bradley, and at the time of her marriage to Major Hall was a widow namee Stephens. A decree nisi was granted.
