Frederick William Memmler.

This individual has gotten into a heap of trouble since he came to Cartersville.  It seems he never struck slate before.  His capacity for getting married too much has involved him in inconvenience.  They are bothering him in church and state.  Besides a pending case in court charged with bigamy, another for adultery, he was brought up last Sunday before the Baptist church on the same charges and expelled.  His jump from Joplin was a bad one, when he landed in Cartersville.  Our people are law abiding and don’t think a man ought to have not more than one wife.  Memmler has found that out by this time, and the best thing he can do for himself is to skip the country.
