Judge E. B. Stiles Confronted With Strange Mixup Over . Suit for Property. GMmpees Into an unusual martial tangle were given by attorneyB in. Judge E. B. Stiles' division of district court this morning in thoi rase of Caroline Pranzen against (Peter R. Pranzen, an action brought by -plaintiff to establish a residence at 712 Riehl. There appeared to be no conflict of facts in the marriage experiences of the parties. The couple married first Sept. 19, 1905 in Fayette Co. In 1913, they were divorced, Mrs. Franzen given custody of the three children and $7,000 in alimony. Infidelity was ground for the decree. Of her alimony, $4,000 went for debts. She bought a home in West Union for $1,400 where for a year or so she supported herself and children. Later she was obliged to place them in a home where she supported them while at physical toil. On Oct 21, 1914, Mrs. Franzen married an elderly man at Dubuque, but the mating was unhappy. She lived with him only a few months. She never obtained a divorce. On Sept 13, 1916, a reconciliation having been effected, Caroline and Peter Franzen went thru a pretended marriage ceremony. Being unable to live in happy accord, Mrs. Franzen last autum (1924) started an action for divorce, her second against the same husband. It was discovered when attorneys probed into the matter that Mrs. Franzen had no legal standing in court; that she was not remarried to Mr. Franzen, not having a divorce from the husband in Dubuque. Mrs. Franzen's claims that she put $400 of her own money, which she earned while taking in washings, into the Riehle property at the time of the purchase. She declares that in the past five years she has earned $2,000 by doing day's work at housework among neighbors which has gone into the home as payments, repairs, etc. Franzen claims he furnished all the money to pay for the home. It was explained by Attorney McCoy that there is probably an equity of $1,000 or $1,200 in the home. Franzen claims that anything Mrs. Franzen donated was a gift.
