JOHN W. TONEY vs. ROSA B. TONEY. The parties were married in this county July 3, l893, and lived together until Sept. l, l90l. The plaintiff alleges he has always treated his wife as a kind and loving husband, but she has disregarded her marriage vows and has been guilty of such cruel and inhuman treatment as to destroy the peace and injure the life of the plaintiff. That she has threatened and attempted to inflict great bodily injury on him, and accused him of infidelity without cause. That when he was sick she would absent herself from home and give him no care or attention. He also charges her with having become addicted to the use of morphine since their marriage. Hoffman & Jackson, attorneys for plaintiff.
