Women's Rights and Responsibilities. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 27 February 1914

Women's Sights and Responsibilities. In a claim for payment for a pony, heard at the Lanccfield Court recently Mr, McNab said the courts had always laid it down that when women are con cerned 1n a contract the vendor must be careful to disclose every thing. Mr Barlow, P.M., said— "In these days it is a staggerer to me that a woman is not thought equal to a man. Vida Goldstein says they are. If the woman had any qualms she should havecalled in a man who would know some thing about horses. She may be a woman of firm opinions. She is a spinster, and has not called in any man to help her in her household responsibilities. You are putting a very bold propo sition, that a vendor should dis close everything to a woman. It is chivalrous, but I do not think it is law. Another thing, the women are taking everything on ■them selves. They are as good as us in book-keeping and in the other work of life, and they must stand by, it if they take up that posi tion. ■ Certainly I wpuld be more carefu...

An Ingenious Defence. At Munchen-Gladbach, an import-! ant West-German manufacturing town, a. short time ago, a defend ant in tho polico-eouvt was ques tioned why ho had not answered a summons on an enrlior*-date, and, without further persuasion, ho re plied that he hud been unable to read the signuture appended to the document, and therefore considered himself justified m doubting its authenticity. • The defendant's solicitor enlarged on the point of the illegibility or tho signature, and surprised the court intensely by pleading that the illegible ^signature /rendered . tho document totally- void of legal value, i This original .standpoint ho man-1 aged to support with suction mass i of legal precedent that the court decided that a summons signed with nn illegible signature could have no value in law.

His thoughts at oncc turned to tho groat city of pleasure. A rich man liUo luinselt should go to Paris ; accordingly ho sold off his effects and came to Paris.

Dentistry 1,000 Years ago. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 27 February 1914

Dentistry 1,000 Years ago. During a lengthy relic-hunting Visit to Ecuador, Professor Mar shall Howard Saville, head of tho archaeology department of Colum bia University, made several note worthy discoveries which will do much to enlighten the present gen eration about tho early residents of that country. Tho relics indicate these people to have been civilised nm) possessing- scientific knowledge. The most interesting discoveries were skulls which showod that the men are of a type superior to tho Aztecs, for beyond the shape of tho skull, teeth were filled with gold and cement, proof unmistakable that j dentistry was nt a high stage of development one thousand years ago. Jn Mexico human teeth have been dug up that were filled and oma mented with stone, but this is tho ! first instance of gold filling having' been found in ti prehistoric skull. | I Tho gold was inside tho teeth, showing little on tho outside, so -the purposo was apparently for util-' ity rather than for ornamentatio...
