individual will find grounds on whcb 1 can
obtain a divorce, although several lawyers
to whom! stated mv onse could find none.
I have been married two years ana eight
months.' My husband is a good looking man
ot 40 yean; is not addicted to drink; in
fao. has no vices that I know of, and while
K. Invai na and Riinnlins ma with mv every
want, yet, though l am ashamed to say it, I
love him not, and therefore, under a ficti
tious name and addro.ia. offer tJb OT one of I

aforesaid divorce, and hs can thereby earn a
