but you should remain a news-
Daper man. and not take too many
flights into the realms of the law.
You stat® that the Common Law
holds all contracts with minors
void. The comm >n law does not
hold all contracts with minors
void, but at most merely holds
them voidable. LTntil avoided by
proper authority they are as bind
ing as any other contracts.

given me. I am

The last “ shot- affords us con
siderable amusement as it shows
that Mr. Tooze is but human and
could not resist the desire to give
us a poke in the slats. However,
if Brother Tooze will carefully
read that part of the article deal
ing with the common law he will
probably see that we did not use
the word “ ALL” at all, he lays so
much stress on. To be sure, we
understand, and took it for grant
ed that everyone else did also,
that some action must be taken to
render any contract void. Laws
are not selfacting. Action must
be brought before some tribunal
with power to pass on unlawful
acts. It is unlawful to steal, to
kill, to burn, yet some action must
be brought before any results are
obtained or punishment meted out.
We would hardly expect such a
quibble from an attorney, but of
some pettifogger, or perchance a
“ newspaper m an.”
We desire to sav that in the above
“ flight into the realm of law ,"
that we are speaking only as a
newspaper man, and not as a dis
ciple of Blackstone.

A New Sign of Surrontler
I f a German soldier finds it
necessary to surrender to a
Frenchman, he neither waives a
white flag nor gives up his sword.
He sits down and takes off his
boots. The Germans are much
better shod than the French and a
French soldier invariably forces
an exchange of shoes if he is for
tunate enough to capture a Ger
man. The Germans have learned
this and several bodies on finding
it necessary to surrender have
seated themselves and begun tak
ing off their shoes at the approach
of the French.

The Earliest Artillery
We think of eighteen-inch artil
lery as distinctly modern. Yet
the first cannon ever taken into
the field were of that caliber. A
crude mortar was fired at the |
battle of Crecy, fought in 1346.
The early eannon balls were chis-
led from stone, and the projectile,
which fits the ancient mortar, is
made of solid granite. Two pow
erful men could scarcely lift it.
These ancient projecti'es remain
ed in use for a surprisingly long, j j
time, for it is recorded that in
1807 a British man-of-war engag
ed against the Turks had her
mainmast severed by a seven-
hundred pound stone shot from a
