Muncie, Ind., Oct. 5. ó "My wife was born with a silver spoon in her mouth; mine was of tin. We have agreed to separate and a divorce, will be given her, as far as I am concerned. I have agreed not to contest her suit. We are still good friends." Tears stood in the eyes of "Davy" Cusick, the "flaxen-haired goal-tend," as he was called in the palmy days of polo, as he recited in brief fashion the story of his shattered romance. He had only good words for his wife, from whom he has been living apart for several months, and blamed others for their unhappiness.

Might and Might Not.

"We might have been happy if others had not meddled, but I am not sure. We were reared in different atmospheres, and our tastes were not always congenial," he said. About two years ago Muncie society was astounded at the elopement of Miss Sue Hemingray, a member of one of the city's most prominent and wealthy families, and a leader in local society, with Cusick, a polo player. Her mother had strongly objected to Cusick's attentions and had forbidden him to come to the house.

Young Woman Knew It All.

While Mrs. Hemingray and her daughter were on the way to a railway station, intending to make a trip to the south, the young woman slipped away, met her sweetheart, obtained a marriage license and hurried to Indianapolis with him, where they were married. They lived together for a year or more in Kokomo and in Fall River, Mass., and Mrs. Cusick's mother forgave her for the runaway match.

Finds She Didn't, Finally.

Then the young woman began to long for her old life, it is said, and tired of her husband. A separation followed. This week Mr. and Mrs. Cusick arranged for a peaceable separation. Cusick wns visibly affected as he said to a Muucie friend this week: "I am going back east and try to forgot it all." The young woman is now in Muncie with her mother. She refuses to discuss her domestic affairs. The suit for divorce will be filed in Kokomo.
