to unseal them. A rule of practice, not only la
this curt, but In the courts ihroutrhout the Slat??,
refjulres that the testimony In divorce eases N
sealed. The ?.?al cm oe broken only by the court,
and an order t?> that effect would be granted only
to persons Interested In the matter and entitled t?
the privilege for reasons other than mere curios?
