  • 11 Nov 1898, DIVORCE COURT.
    In the Divorce Court on Monday before the Chief Justice, Mary Jane Wishart, of Sale, sought a dissolution of her marriage with Charles Wishart, brewer's traveller, formerly of Sale, but now of parts unknown, on the ground of desertion. The marriage took place at Sale, according to the rites of the Church of England, on 6th May, 1888, and there was one child of the marriage living. Respondent, it was alleged, deserted his wife in July, 1893, and had not since contributed to her support. The only communication petitioner had received from him since 1895 was a telegram from Boulder City, which was dated on the anniversary of the wedding day, and read :-" Don't you remember this day 10 years ago ?"
    Before Wishart deserted her, petitioner said. "he was jolly to everybody else but her." When she remonstrated with him about his not properly supporting her, he said he was going to have " a short life and a happy one," and that she was doing very well, for she could keep herself. A decree nisi was granted, with costs, and an order made that petitioner should have the custody of the child. Mr Woolt appeared to support the petition.6
