Little Chats on Public Notice Long Distance Notice ( No. 21 in a Series ) A mid-western newspaper received a letter from a British law firm containing a request to print a legal notice. In brief, an English woman had decided to sue for a divorce from her long- absent husband. Under English, as under American law, she had to give due notice of her intentions. But she and her solicitors ( lawyers ) knew as to her husband's whereabouts that he was reported to be In the Midwest. They worn not sure but thought it was southern Michigan. An Ohio paper suggested that the notice be published in a Michigan paper, but the reply came back that they wanted the notice published as first requested. This was done in the legal notice columns. But the story was so unusual the newspaper gave it a "play" in its page one news columns, also. It is not known whether the notice or the news story ever came to the attention of the husband. But this little incident illus­ trates two things. It shows how the wife moved in a manner to exercise her rights, yet in a way to safeguard those of her husband by putting him on notice and giving an opportunity to make a counter move if he desired. In particular, it shows how the Ixma fide newspaper is an effective and preferred medium for such purposes and haw in so doing it renders an important service for which the law provides. — • — When Is Delinquent? ( No. 22 in a Series ) Quirks in the law often con fuse the layman. There are even times when the bar and the IHMICII are puzzled. And not infrequently both attorneys and the courts differ in their interpretations of the law. Technicalities may arise in the area of public notices, or legal advertising, but not often. One of these peculiar situations resulted when a professional man traded a building lot he owned on a piece of rental property. He had a clear title to the lot on which some assessments were due for street paving, sidewalks and similar improvements. To make sure he was entirely in the clear, he wrote- a check for the taxes then due as well as for the assessments to date. Hut he made the mistake of writing the check to the broker on his assurance that he would take care of the payment, instead of making it direct to the county treasurer. To make n long story short, the broker unfoi innately went into bankruptcy and the payee's money went "down the drain." After a while, in due course, his name was published in a local newspaper as a delinquent taxpayer although he was innocent of it, they joshed him about it. Still worse, after consulting several attorneys, he learned that because of the technicalities invoked it would take an act of the legislature to clear his name. His friends believed his story of course, but he suffered a lot of good natured kidding. Even the legal accident proved again the power of the public notice. fa--Try HI RATH DOG FOOD Here are the newest animal protein feeds from Bath —Kath Granular Meal and Rath Expanded Chunk Dog Foods!
