INDEX. 543
ALIMONY PEDENTE LITEŚContinued.
who has been abandoned, or is living apart from her husband, tempo-
rary alimony, and the means of prosecuting or defending a suit for
divorce, and this without any inquiry whatever into the merits of the
case. Coles vs. Coles, 341.
4. Though its jurisdiction has been denied by demurrer or otherwise, the
court is not, on that account, at liberty to withhold from the wife the
means of living in the interval, or perhaps of prosecuting her suit. Ib.
5. But if the wife haa, under her own control, the means of carrying on
the suit, and maintaining herself pending the litigation, the reason of
the rule fails, and the rule itself fails also. Ib.
6. Where the application for temporary alimony, and the means to prose-
cute the suit, was delayed until the cause was nearly ready for final
hearing on the merits, and it being proved that the wife had received,
since the commencement of the suit, the sum of (300, in derogation
of the marital rights of the husband, which he consented she should
retain, and apply to the expenses of the suit, the court refused to
order the husband to pay any thing further to enable his wife to prose-
cute her auit, but passed an order granting her alimony, pendente
llte. Id,
7. There can be no doubt of the power of this court, pending a bill for a di-
vorce by a wife, to compel the husband to pay her temporary alimony,
and also to furnish her with the means of defraying the expenses of the
suit, and that upon such an application by the wife, living apart from her
husband, and without means, the merits will not be looked into, the
allowance being made almost, if not entirely, as a matter of course.
Tayman, vs. Tayman, 393.
8- If the. wife be living with her husband, an allowance of alimony, pen-
dente lite, would be unnecessary and improper, but it does not follow,
that under such circumstances, upon an application by her, the hus-
band would not be made to supply her with money to fee counsel, and
defray the expense of the suit. 16.
9. The application must be made by the wife and not by the counsel in
his own name. Ib.
See NE EXEAT, WRIT OF, 1, 3, 4.
DIVORCE.
ALLOWANCE OF CREDITS.
See ASSIGNMENT, &c., 8.
ANNUITY.
1. Where the premises of a deed (which word includes every thing which
precedes the habendum) make it clear that the intention was to secure
the plaintiff an annuity of $120, during the natural life of M. A., the
court will construe the deed so as to effectuate this intention, though
the habendum contain no words of limitation defining the duration of
the estate. Peyton vs. Ayres et al; 64.
2. The method, in this state, of ascertaining the present value of an an-
nuity for life, as adopted he the Court of Appeals, is to apply, by
analogy, the Chancery rule, for fixing the allowance to a woman, in
lieu of dower in lands, sold under a decree. Ib.
