———————— Matrimonial Billows. SOME OF THE .v RECKS. The pessimist who visits our local police-courts a few times, if asked the now well-worn ques- tion, "Is marriage a failure?" would feel com- pelled to answer with an emphatic Yes. When one hears the pitiful stories of matrimonial un- happiness which are poured, day after day, into the ears of our justices, one cannot help sighing at the pictures of wrecked hopes, wrecked ideals wrecked happiness, so vividly painted before him But after all, it is a relief to remember that the picture has another and a brighter side. Therein he finds depicted the sea of matrimony calm and inviting, the majority of the human craft launched upon it sailing steadily before the mony.Two cases whicL came before Mr Ignatius Williams (the learned Stipendiary) and his col- leagues on the Porth Bench last week revealed the darker side. Elizabeth Morgan summoned her husband for desertion. The evidence showed that the com- plainant went to live with defendant at his father's house, but was turned out by the latter. During the last twelve months the defendant had given her 11s 6d. The defendant handed in a paper which showed that he suefFred from lumbago. An order of 7s a week was made. Samuel Davies, labourer, Pontypridd, was brought to court under warrant for non-payment of arrears due to his wife Jane, under a main- tenance order. There was now due about L20. Defendant said that he was not aware that an order had been made. The Bench sent defen- dant to prison for two months with hard labour.
