Brigham Young's Seventeenth Spouse.
The seventeenth wife, if such a thing can be, of the Mormon prophet has determined on a divorce. Her complaint against the notorious biga-mist is that he has neglected to treat her as a husband ought; that she is sick and in poverty while Brigham has an income of $400,000 a month. She asks that the modest sum of $200,000 may be set aside from de-fendant's estate and be paid to her as alimony. If this miserable woman had asked herself the question before she became the prophet's concubine, how can one man treat each of seven-teen wives, as a good husband is ex-pected to treat one wife she might have been saved much trouble. But the courts undoubtedly ought to make Mr. Young pay, and the government ought to put an utter end to this big-amous nest of corruption at once.
