DAISY L. MCCUTCHAN has commenced an action for divorce against SANFORD B. MCCUTCHAN. She states in her petition that they were married at Leon on October l, l902, and lived together until August 23, l903, when she claims he deserted her and has since remained away. She also says that after their marriage he frequently threatened to knock her head off and accused her of infidelity, and that during the time they lived together he compelled her to move on an average of once every thirty days, regardless of her health. She also accuses him of coming home drunk on an average of once a week when she would have to put him to bed. For these and other reasons she asks for a decree of divorce and the custody and control of their minor child, LEO, now one year old. Ed. H. Sharpe, Attorney for plaintiff.
