Aaother Disappointment
The Savings Organization of the
Tenth Federal Reserve District has
just been informed by the Treasury
Department that the Secretary of
War, deciding that hand grenades
converted into savings banks should
not be sent broadcast throughout the
country, has cancelled his arrange
ment to furnish grenades to the
Treasury Department.
Although more than 300,000 of these
grenades have been sold to the banks
in the Tenth District, the children
who have entered into the savings
plan during their vacation, must con
tent themselves with Certificates or
Appreciation issued by the Treasury
Department for their services. These
Certificates are being prepared in
Washington and will be issued by the
Savings Organization.
The War Department gave its ap
proval of the grenade distribution
several weeks ago. Its recent decison
comes as a surprise but was evidently
made on account of complaints made
that the grenades might bceome a
menace to the safety of children and
families owing to the possibility of
again converting them into dangerous
weapons.
TWO CURIOUS CASES
TAKEN FROM A JURY
A Business Man Refused to Pay the
Milk Man and the Newspaper Man
Two curious cases were brought up
against a New York business man
last week for money he claimed he
did not owe.
A milk distributing company had
delivered milk to his family for years
and it appeared that none of the milk
had been paid for either at the milk
Btation, at the defendant's resi
dence, or at his ofTice or any other
place or at alL. and he alleged that
neither he nor his family had ordered
it and he therefore refused to pay
for it.
Just such conditions, allegations
and refusals were made in the news
paper case.
The milk case was tried first on
stipulation between the lawyers that
both cases rested on a similar set of
facts and that one should decide the
other.
The defendant admitted on the
stand that his family had received
and used the milk but all evidence as
to whether or not ho or his family
had ordered it was ruled out as being
immaterial, the judge ruling that re
ceiving and taking the benefit of the
milk constituted a contract to pav
for it.
At that juncture the case was taken
from the jury by the judge and a
judgment entered against the defen
dant in the milk case for the amount
demanded. Payment in both cases
was then made, according to stipula
tion.
Thus it appeared that a contract
to pay money need not be either ver
bal or in writing but may be by im
plication.
A Narrow Escape
The Gunnison Empire.
Lost week while autolng to Castle
ton on business, Mrs. L. N. Brunton,
accompanied by Elix Roberts and
John Whipp, had a narrow escape
when the trolly which carries the coal
buckets across the road near Castle
ton, swung down, being caused by a
bucket letting loose, striking the
auto, breaking the wind shield to
small bits and tearing the top com
pletely off the car. Mr. Roberts was
struck n the side of the head nearly
having his ear torn off, and other
wise bruised about the neck and
shoulders. Mrs. Brunton and Mr.
Whipp escaped with a bad scare and
consider themselves lucky In getting
off so easily.
Teacher—Now, Johnny. suppose
