NEWPORT. COUNTY COURT, THURSDAY. i (Before His Honour Judge OWEN). I THE JUDGE AND MARITAL LAW. The case of Hook v. Hook arose out of a. matrimonial difference, in which a mason's labourer had entered into an agreement to separate from his wife, to take the custody of the four children of the marriage. and to pay his wife 4s. per week towards her mainten- ance. Hook had not paid the latter amount for 32 weeks, and now declared that the children were of more importance than his wife. His Honour pointed out that if the wife were living with defendant it would cost him more than 4s. per week to keep her, and continuing, his Honour said, "The law requires you to support her. The law is very peculiar in some things, but very sensible in that." Def-ndant was then ordered to pay at the rate of 6s. 6d. per week until the balance is wiped off."
