In the Riddle divorce suit today, his Honor granted a decree nisi on the ground of cruelty. The Court granted the decree nisi to the petitioner on grounds that respondent, within one year of filing of petition, had repeatedly assaulted and cruelly beaten him. Costs to be paid by the petitioner. In this case the petitioner, Walter Riddle, a farmer and selector near Cowra, prayed for the dissolution of his marriage with Catherine Maria Riddle on the grounds of cruelty, and adultery with Stephen Stapleton, a young man who had been in his employ."

      Riddle family sources inform that "Walter was having an affair with the children's governess, Ada Badham, and insisted the last child be named after her. Because of the affair, Catherine threw acid in Walter's face - he sported a beard after that". Ada became Walter's second wife.(Ref:Smeaton Family by Neil Pollock)
