LIABILITY OF INFANT TRACERS. His Honour Judge Bray gave a considered judgment at the Clerkcnwell Police-court in an actfou brought by Sydney Newton, an elee- trical engineer, of A venue-road. Crouch-end, and Baker-street, N., against Montague Wootton Ramsay, a dentist, of Junction-road, Upper Hollo way. The action was brought to recover ;£26 16s" fid. for the installation of elee- trie light and fixing a telephone. The defence was that the elefeudant was under twenty-one at the time that the work was agreed to be dene for Y.10 or £ 12, and that it was badly done. The defendant also counter-claimed for repairing teeth and supplying new teeth. His Honour said that if an infant carried on a trade or business, things supplied for the purpose of, or to enable him to carry on the trade or business, were not necessaries, and lie cou-d not be made to pay for them. He held that the electric liht and telephone were not necessaries, and there would, therefore, b,3 judgment for the defendant, with costs on the claim. On the counter-claim he found that the dental work was done gratuitously and not for reward, so there would be judgment for the plaintiff, with costs.
