Mr. Waterliury's counsel offered no
ohectlon to the testimony, nor did he
oppose the divorce.
In many ways there has been no

He had gone to school with Alfred.

Jay t.oiild gave evidence of a strong'
liking for Waterhury, and the Oould
family generally took n hand in looking
after his social welfare.
The miouncemenl of hla engagement
to Miss Maud L. Hall in 1899 was the
cause of surprise to Mr. Waterliury's
friends, for though Miss Hall was re
garded as one of the prettiest young
society women of that day, and be

was nm the child of very wealthy par

reported at that time, could have mar
