A NURSE'S MARRIAGE STORY. Mr. Justice Barnes has had befoir him, in the Divorce Court, the case of Burke v. Burke. This was the petition of Mrs. Alice Burke for a dissolu- tion of her marriage on the ground of the cruelty, desertion, and adultery of her husband, Frederick Burke.—Mr. Murphy, who appeared for the petitioner, stated that the petitioner had been a hospital nurse at the Liverpool Royal Infirmary, and she first met the respondent when he was an in-patient there, and had his leg amputated. As a result of the acquaintance, they were married at All Saints' Church, Princes Park, Liverpool, on January 1st, 1893. From the commencement of the married life the respondent systematically ill- treated his wife. A few days after the marriage he struck her. Subsequently the wife had to leave him in consequence of her husband's brutality. Later on he was convicted in Liverpool for obtaining money under false pretences. During the course of last year the husband appeared in London in "quite another capacity," viz., he was engaged in the service of the Church of England Temperance Society, and was also found to be living with another woman.—These facts having been proved, his lordship granted a decree nisi, with costs.
