IF A HUSBAND PAYS BILLS MADE

TIME. HE IS IMPL1EDLY AU?
THORIZED TO BUY AS HIS
AGENT, ?ND SUCH AGENCY CON?

r.Y SEPARATION ??E HUSBAND
AND WIPE, IN THE ABSENCE OP
NOTICE i>K IT TO THE SELLER.
THE MERE PACT THAT THE
GOODS ARE CHARGED TO THE
WIPE DOES NOT .MAKE Till".
Tho facts appear from the opinion
of tho court.
Tho court nays:
The only question presented In this
easo is: la the husband liable for the
price of koi iIs (Indies' apparel), not
in cessnries, sold to his wife, after sepa?
ration, by one who hud, previous to
tin- seuarntlou, s< Id lo her, on credit, !
nt various tunes, goods whUch were at- !
I or wards paid for by ih" husband: ;ho
seller having been Ignorant of the sepa?
ration at the lime of the last sale?
His honor instructed the jury that. It
tliey believed the evidence, to answer
ih" issue, "Is the defendant Indebted to
Hi.- plaintiffs, and. il' so. in v. hat sum?"
"Nothing*." 'flu- defendant's wife hud.
before their separation, bought goods
from th.- plaintiffs in New York City,
and they had Bent out monthly state-'
mcnts of nccounl hcrcfor to tin- defen?
dant at his home, in Gruehsboro, N. i
He never made objection to the course
of his wife, und tin- husband paid some
? ?!' i hi' hills by his personal checks,
After the separation, the plaintiffs sold
11Li r k .ods lo tho defendant's wife, the
price of which this action was brought
? i recover, the plaintiffs having no no
in ? of tin- separation, although it was
known generally in North Carolina, ami
Hi Greensboro, where the defendant re?
sided, a husband can make his wife
hi:; it ?eil I) and in- will be bound for her
ai ts by the same rules of law as would
prevail in tho case of any other agency,
and tho agency may ho express or Im?
plied, as in other cases. That being tho
true statement of tho law. we are - f
Hi" opinion thin upon ho facts in this
case ino Instruction of his honor was
'I'll" defendant, by his course of ac?
quiescence in Ihc dealings between the
plaintiffs und Iiis wife, and by his pay?
ment of tin' accounts, hold his wife out
to the plaintiffs as empowered and au?
thorized by him to make purchases of
?ii.-- from lhem, and such an agency
by Implication is as binding as if ho
had expressly authorized her to buy
the goods mi Iiis account. Tho Implied
agency having thus been established,
the plaintiffs had a rlgni to presume
tint the authority would bo continued
until they had reason ;?> know that it
had bi 'it dlscont i nucd.
J Tho main contentions of tho defend?
ant were: Kit.-;, that tho purchase of j
I tho goods on credit was tho contract of
th,- wife hoi.-.-if. and therefore void,1
and, and, as a corollary, that tho de?
fendant husband could not ratify a
contract void and against public poli?
cy: second, that the wife's Implied au?
thority from tho husband to purchase
tii" goods from tho plaintiffs, if it ever
existed, was revoked by tho separation,
by force of law, as in case of tho death
of a principal; and, third, that if there
ever existed an Implied agency between
the defendant and his wife, Hie plain?
tiffs had notl.if its revocation by
reason of (he fai t thai tho separation
was generally known in Greensboro,
vhere the defendant resided. We think.
tht\ although the goods were charged
on the books of tho plaint iffs to (he
wife, :i " whole transaction ilmweTT
I that the credit was extended to (he
i defendant; ami th" manner In which
they were charged could not affect his
t liability, especially as monthly state

A CONTRACT WHICH. AS REQUIR?
ED BY THE STATUTE OF
FRAUDS. IS PUT IN WRITING,
CANNOT BE SURSEQUENTLY
MODIFIED BY A PAROL AGREE?
MERK NON-ACTION 1= NOT PER?
FORMANCE, AND WILL NOT
TAKE A PAROL CONTRACT OUT
OF THE STATUTE OF FRAUDS* ?
Tho .' musta So'.it'noru Railroad Com?
pany b 'lUsht an action against th"
Smith ?'~ Kllby Company for an alleged
breach of a written contract, which
would, had the same boon in parol, have
been void under the statute of frauds.
Finding Itself unable to prove facts
entitling it (??> n recovery upon Its orig?
inal petition, (he plaintiff filed certain
amendments thereto; alleging that af?
ter the making of the written contract
the same had. in material respects (the
parti.'til.us concerning which wore sot
forth), been changed and modified by a
pnrol agreement between the parties.
Treating the amc-ukd contract a.1 a
whole, It was still mje which would
have been void under the statute of
frauds, had it resiefl entirely in parol.
After those amendments to the peti?
tion were allowed, tho defendant, by ft
demurrer thereto, made the point that,
inasmuch ns the contract originally de?
clared upon was one which, under (he
statute, would not have been good but
for the fact that It was In writing, pa?
rol modifications of it materially chang?
ing Its to: ms could not lawfully

be Blieset! or proven. The de?
murrer was sustained and the
plaintiff * contends that this was error.
The court says:
1. It is not now onon t" serious ques?
tion that, "if it were not necessary in
the first it.statue to have the contract
reduced inn writing-, parol evidence
may be received of conversations and
circumstances subsequent to the time
of making the agreement, to show that
the parties, upon sufficient considera?
tion,.consented afterwards to vary the
c lit i act or add some new stipulation.'
But it by no means follows that a con?
tract Within the statute of frauds, and
therefore required to be in writing in
the first Instance, can subsequently tie
modified or changed by parol. On the
contrary, 'lie language just quoted
clearly intimates that this is not per?
missible. After stating the com mi n law
rule that simple contracts, though re?
duced to writing, may be annulled or
modified by a 'fresh pnrol agreement."
Mr. Benjamin says: "But this principle
of the common law is not applicable to
a contract for the sale of goods under
the statute of frauds. No verbal Bgr.
ment to abandon it In part, or to add to
or omit or modify any of its terms, is
admissible." We might without diffi?
culty multiply citations on this line,
but it Is unnecessary, for this court has
in distinct terms held that contracts
which the law requires to be in writing
cannot he altered by subsequent parol
Though there may be decisions else?
where to the contrary, tin- weight of
-authority accords with the view which
has met with approval in this State.
When "the original contract is required
by the statute of frauds to lie in writ?
ing, the better opinion is that it can?
not he varied by a subsequent contract
\\ hlch is not in writing. As the new
contract is rendered void by the stat?
ute of frauds, it ought not :?> affect the
rights acquired under the former agree?
1. There Is no merit in the contention
that there was part performance by the
plaintiff in the present case. Mere non
actlon cannot he treated as perform?
ance, either partial or complete. The
plaintiff parted with nothing of value,
and did nothing to its Injury. It sim?
ply waited, choosing to rely upon a pa?
rol agreement which it ought to have
known was not legally binding upon
the opposite party. The case of Simon

WAKING OF SAUCE.
TUB WORCESTERSHIRE ARTICLE
NOW MADE IN THIS COUNTRY.
EXTREME CARE THAT IS
Many years ago. by the favor of a
nobleman residing in the County of
Worcester. England, Messrs. l<en & Por
rlns became possessed of the receipt
for preparing a sauce of exquisite llnvor
nnd pungency. This relish was intro?
duced to the DUblic under the tin,, of
Worcestershire Sauce, and since then
that name has bee line well know n
throughout the civilized world, the
merits of the sauce easiiv establishing
the popularity of the article.
Lea ? PerrIns' Worcestershire Sauce
was first Introduced into America by
John Duncan in the early forties, and
to-day tin- firm of John Duncan's Sons,
No. 892 Canal street, is one of the
largest ami best-known establishments I
of its kind in the world. For years the
Duncans sunulled the American mar?
ket with Lea \- Perrlns' Sauce direct
from the factory in England, hut re
cently they have made a new ami valu?
able departure. They have received
from Ihe parent house the original re?
cipe, iL carefully guarded secret, and
are m,w manufacturing Lea Perrlns'
Worcestershire Sauce i-? their own es?
tablishment, which is one of the model
factories of New York.
The factory on Canal Street extends
through to York street, and is an eight
story building of recent construction
