ABUSED WIFE IS GIVEN DIVORCE.
Judge Homer B. Dibell Frees Mrs. Henderson [sic.] from Irksom Bonds.
Judge Homer B. Dibell in the district court yesterday signed a decree of divorce for Mignonette Hendrickson, nee Murphy, from Lloyd Hendrickson, the latter having failed to contest the proceedings. The plaintiff alleged, among other things that the pair were married at Walker, Minn., Aug. 27, 1804, when he was 22 and she 20 year of age.
She alleged that since marriage the defendant gave her a "studied, willful and unendurable" course of ill treatment. After a month in his father's house she says she went with her husband to Backus, Minn., to help him in his hotel business, with the understanding that the elder Hendrickson and his so-called adopted daughter were not to live with them.
After a month at the hotel, where the other pair lived with them despite the promise, the plaintiff says her husband and she separated, she going out to look for work. Persuasion drew her back to her husband, where she alleges, he insisted that she submit to an unlawful operation, which she did. She claimed that her husband's treatment was very hard on her health, that he was constantly associated immorally with other women, and that he frequently came home intoxicated.
Her attorney was W. H. Shea, Jr., of Virginia.
