Woman the Weaker Vessel
Four years ago David S. Sage and his wife, of Lebanon, Ill., were killed in a storm. In a suit for the settlement of the estate, which is worth $10,000, it became necessary to decide which died first. If the husband, the wife’s heirs would be entitled to her share of the estate; if the wife, then his heirs would get all the property. The court decided that as the woman was presumably the weaker person, Mrs. Sage must have died first.
