Some time ago (says the Christchurch ‘ Telegraph ’), in a certain city of New Zealand, a gentleman and his sons carried on a thriving business. Its success was to a great extent dependent upon the efforts of the sons. Their father, however, married again. He made a will in favor of his wife. Before time was given her to deal with the property she died intestate, but the law made a will for her, as it does in such cases. The result of it was that the whole of the property promptly went to the next of kin, who in this case was her brother. The sons who had helped to get the property together thus got nothing, and a man who never worked for a pennyworth of it got all. Surely, as a great literary authority says, “The law is a hass.” Indeed, in many cases it is something much worse than the harmless quadruped. About 30,000 people a day go up the Eiffel Tower. Of these between 3,000 and 4,000 go to the top, On an average a person has to wait about an hour to go up in the lift.
