The Marriageable Age. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912
The Marriageable Age. " When a man marries, Iris troubles bo gin," is a fact that was instilled into ou minds in the days when we delighted in imrsorv rhymes, and perhaps that accounts for the comparatively late marriages of Englishmen in general. The " marriageable ago" dlilors con siderably in various countries. In Aus tria a " man" and " woman" aged 14 ara supposed to bo capable of setting up house keeping for themselves. In Germany th« man must bo at least IS years of ago. In (Belgium and In France the man must bo 16 and the woman IS before they enter into the bonds of wedlock. The Turkish law allows any boy or girl who can walk properly, and who can under stand the necessary roligious service, to bo united for life. In Switzerland, Spain, and also In Greccc, boys from tlio age of 14 and girls from the age of 12 are allowed to marry. In Russia and Saxony lads of 11 may marry, but girls must not do so until two years later. In Hungary the marriageable age varies according to reli...

The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd, 1912. NOTES OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 2 March 1912
The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, MAliCi! 2:ul, 1912 The Assembly debute ou the mot ion of tlxe Fathur of the House to the effect that the Speaker was de serving of censure and was not in possession of tho confidence o£ members was just about up to the level of what was expected, based on judgment of the continued in ability of the legislators to adapt themselves to the autocratic and 'vain-glorious methods of Mr Willis. Mr. Wood's discomfiting ejectment so early after lxis re-ontry to the chamber was not surprising/ but like Mr. Bruntnell, who towards the close ol' tho unruly periods that punctuated tho discussion Was also jcalled upon to get out or be put out, ho has probably come to count it an honor to fall into disfavor with Mr. Speaker. The fact that Mr. Willis had the hardihood to re main in the chair througout the fierce denunciation of his conduct is in itself sufficient to rob him of a lot of esteem. One would havo thought that the lowost estimate of what was fitting would have ...
