This appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer of Oct 28, 1900:

QUEER WARNINGS FOR FICKLE WIVES

W. Blacklock inserted a curious advertisement in the Samoa Herald warning all and sundry in these terms:

"Apele, a Samoan woman to whom I was married by Vice Consul Hamilton in 1886, having long since refused to obey my lawful commands, and, contrary to my express orders, associated with and following the advice of unscrupulous, scheming and worthless persons, and having on July 23 last left my home, bag and baggage, to live among the Samoans, and being now away down the coast with natives without my consent; I hereby again give notice that I shall not recognize any debts contracted by her, nor in any way be responsible for her acts."
