for failure to allege other circumstances
of the alleged offense.
3. In suits for divorce as in other
:lvll causes the burden 1b upon the
plaintiff to make out htB case by

4. In this case the evidence of
the adulterous acts alleged was not
sufficient to support the decree a

Daniels vs. the Charles Boldt
Company; Cabell county; Judgment
affirmed: Miller, judge. ,
1. Tne ueciarauon in tnis case by '
an Infant Is good on demurrer, as j
one alleging a general employment, '
the relationship of master and ser- {
rant, and defendant's dutlos In respect
thereto, and a breach of those
duties, but It Is not sufficient as one
alleging a special contract of employment,
nnd breaches thereof, re- "
suiting In personal Injuries to complainant.
2. To have the protection afforded
under chapter 10, acts of the
legislature of 1913, known as the
workmen's compensation act, an employer
must not only have paid the
premium provided thereby, but the
Injured employee must have had actual
notice that his employer had
elected to pay Into the workmen's
compensation fund, the premiums
provided by said act; but typewrltted
or printed notices thereof, when
duly posted in conspicuous places :
about his place or places of business,
as required by said act will, as provided
thereby, constitute sufficient
nntlcn to all hi* Pmnlovnoa that ho 1
has made such election.
3. Defendant's Instruction numbered
two was rightly rejected, and j
number three properly modified, as ]
not presenting clearly and without |
confusion the law of the workmen's ,
compensation act, applicable to the ,
facts proven on the trial. I
4. It Is actionable negligence, for t
an employer who has employed an \
Infant to work In a safe place. In or ]
about the construction of a building, ,
to order him to work In another |
place, of known danger for employees
of that age, and from which ,
place he falls and Is Injured . i
E. The verdict In this case, ]
twenty-five hundred dollars, for per- j
manent Injuries to a,boy fifteen years 1
of age is not excessive.

2. By Introducing his own evience,
after the court has overruled

3. Proof of facts and clrcumtances

Watts vs. Ohio Valley Klectrlc
lailway Company; Cabell county;
fBrmed; Williams, president.
1. In an action against an emloyer,
subject to the workmen's
ompensatlon act. for an Injury revived
by one of his servants, the
leclaratlon Is good, if Its averments
how the Injury was the direct reult
of negligence on the part of some
mployee or officer, other than plalnltt.
or resulted from the negligence
if such other combined with his own.
2. Negligence Is the basis of such
ctlon; and. If plaintiff's Injury Is
lue wholly to his own negligence, he
an not recover. But section 26 of
he act, makes the employer liable,
rot only for his own negligence, but
lso for the negligence of any of his
ifflcers, agents or other employees,
nd denies to htm the common law
lefenses of contributory negligence,
ssumption of risk and negllgenco ol
i fellow servant.
.1. The workmen's compensation
ct does not violate any of the emiloyer's
constitutional rights, by delying
to him the aforesaid defenses,
An electric railway company
rhlch operates an urban car line,
nd also other lines connecting therevith
and extending Into another state
s both an intrastate and an Interitnte
carrier. But the federal emiloyers'
liability act does not apply In
he case of Injury to a servant of such
ontpany, who Is operating a street
ar, confined to the urban lines and
lot, at the time of injury, carrying
nterstate nasseneers or tmffle TV
nake the federal act applicable, the
ajured servant must be engaged It
nterstate commerce at the time ol
njury.
5. In . an action for personal In
lury, where the Jury has returned I
rerdlct for plaintiff, the defeudan
las moved to set It aBlde on thi
ground that the damages assessec
ire excessive. It Is reversible error ti
:ompel plaintiff to remit a portion o
loo damages on pain or Having tin
verdict set aside, and to enter Judg
client for the balance.

the prpperty benefited by the lm
provement, one holding a Hen on tbi
land, by virtue of a will, for the pay
ment of a legacy charged thereon 1
t necessary party; and niB ommissloi
is such renders tbe bill bad on do
murrer.
2. Where a city, erroneously bu
n good faith assuming an alley to bi

lewcr, without first acquiring title
:o the soil of the necessary easemen
therein, Buch unlawful entry and ap
propriatlon, in the absence of protes

knowledge thereof, do not alone con
itltute a defense to a suit for th
enforcement of the special assess
ment lien, It the city has power unde

3. Nor can such defense be as
terted where the landowners, wltl
full knowledge of the encroachment

>ut granted permission therefor
Such acquiescence and permissloi
institute an estoppel to contest th<
-Ight to enforce payment of th<

To recover In assumpsit for th<
ireach of an executory agreement foi

p Even after months of oxtenslv'e :
buying, requirements continue re- i
markably heavy and further aug- !
mentation of business Is noted. Consumptive
demands are sustained In
greater volume than in best-previous 1
years and pressure upon Industrial !
forces,Is.unabated, though in some i
instances high prices check new con- .
i tracts- But such cases are still the
> exception and. In the aggregate, the
- transactions grow rather than dlraln1
lah, being limited mainly by the over1
sold condition of mills and factories,
r Manufacturers are working as'never

farther behind on orders. Scarcity

"1 (eel as line aa silk." he said,

It is Said. i
LiEESVlLLE, O., April 8.?Clan It 1
be considered as being within the
realm of future possibilities that we <
are to have a breed of hens that can
be depended upon to lay two eggs s '
lay? That there are bens with a two 1
apartment egg factory within their '
abnormal interiors would appear to .
be sin Indisputable fact from dlscov- i
cries already made, and which will <
here be described for the benefit of <
the progressive scientific breeder and i
all others Interested. ' ' l
Two months ago when Mr. and Mrs. 1
John T. Tlmmons, the former being
known as the blind author and naturalist,
decided to move from Cadiz. 0.,
lo Leeavllle, they decided to sell all
their poultry except four hens which
they decided to keep to supply the I
table Immediately previous to their
moving, and all the hens were disposed
of but four. The next evening
pne of these was killed, and the following
day when there were but three
bens left In a coop which was closed i
on account of cold weather, four eggs I
were louna in ma ncin '
.This *u looked upon u strange. I
uid close watch was ke^t by- Mr. and 1
Mrs. Tlmmons, and on three more oc- 1
caslons prior to their moving away 1
from Cadiz, one of the remaining hens j
laid two eggs in one day, and once she 1
laid two eggs within a few minutes of !
each other. On the following day she ]
laid one egg.
The hen was taken to the new home
In IoesTille, where she has on two '
occasions repeated the performance
of depositing two normally sized eggs ,
very much alike In shape and weight, .
In the nept within a few minutes. This. .
hen Is'a cross between Hhode Island ,
Red mother and Barred Rock: rooster.
Other chickens were hatched at the
same time this hen was brought into' ,

A number of self-supporting women
a New York city have banded totether
to fight goealp. Ftor that purlose
and for other purpoaea related
o the general, aplrltual and physical
velfare of women, these foea of gosilp
hare organised the Order of Cornthlana,
to which any person Is ellgl>le
who subscribes to the doctrine of
it. James?I hope It Is Bt. Jameshat
"The tongue Is an unruly evil,
Mil of deadly poison.'
Miss Mary Hoppe, head of the
Woman's Business Bureau, at 37 East
rwenty-elghth street, originated tbo
dea of the Order of Corinthians,

nore than a year ago, but which Is

tarry on a national crusade against

These clubs will be nladxed "to

Miss Hoppe told me yesterday that

In an equivalent of service by
the Woman's Business Bureau.
I told Miss Hoppe, a gentle, grayhaired
southern woman of the old
ichool, that the most astonishing purpose
of'tho Order, of Corinthians Is Its
determination to abolish gossip.
When Adam. Was Be red.
"Everybody gossips," I assured her.
"The Sphinx IS'the only woman who
never talkbd scandal. Eve gossiped
with the serpent, and Adam was

If there had been but one other woman

. 'I agree with you," Miss Hoppe aniwered
promptly, that men gossip,

should we make men a.standard? Let
us simply ma)ce up otir minds that

things."
Often Staling a Fact.
?But Tory little gossip Is deliberately
unkind," I protested. "For initance.

Mrs. Jones and her fourth husband
