    • RASMUSSEN v. RASMUSSEN.

      Eleonora Rasmussen petitioned for divorce from Neils Peter Rasmussen, of whereabouts unknown, on the ground of desertion. 
      Mr. A. D. M'Gill (instructed by Messrs. Nicol Robinson and Fox, agents for Mr. F. B. Sykes, of Gympie) appeared for the plaintiff. The action was not defended. 
      Plaintiff gave evidence of marriage to defendant at Wondai in 1908. Defendant was a native of Denmark, but became naturalised. Owing to defendant's cruelty, she had to leave him twice. After he returned from a five years' stay in Denmark during the war, defendant promised to build a home for her at Mount Gravatt, but he built only a small tin hut. He did not support her. Plaintiff had not seen defendant since April, 1921. While they were separated they were on friendly terms, but when they were living together he ill-treated her.

      His Honour granted a decree nisi, with costs against the defendant.
