Some crisp aphorisms, suggested by his long experience In divorce cases, have""t)een uttered by vice chancel lor Garrison In Jersey City. ' In this instance the counsel for the husband endeavored to prove that his client was earning only $10 a week as a window dresser, and counsel for the wife was striving to convince the court that the huB band's father fairly revels In wealth and abundantly supplies his son with thousands. The vice chancellor remarked: "If you could organize a stock company to buy up a husband's as sets at his valuation during a di vorce action and sell them at hia -wife's valuation it wouldn't take, a year to make John D. Rockefeller look like an amateur. Every wife, when seeking a divorce, seems to regard her husband as -a Croesus. Every husband n the case look3 upon himself as a Lazarus. " "It seems to be the opinion of laymen and of some lawyers that the wife should receive one-third of the husband's income as alimony. If the Carnegies should decide to get a divorce Mrs. Carnegie would in that case receive several million dollars a year in alimony."
