Hi this is Matt and here are 5 New York Times headlines from March 8th, 1913.Number 5 - Lower wages for women was a big issue at that time and a large gathering representing various facets of society gathered to discuss the situation. One question asked by the audience seemed to resonate the most among those gathered - "If a girl were receiving $8 a week, and had to support a widowed mother, would you blame that girl if she committed a crime?"Number 4 - French royalty tried to sneak in a pet pig into an upscale hotel in New York and that stirred some drama. A watchman discovered the pig in the hotel room - he found a wild South American pig, described by him as a foot and a half long and covered with bushy brownish hair, having the time of his life in the bedroom. He was captured after a lively game of pig-in-the-corner. And he ended up staying in a separate hotel area.Number 3 - When advertising today, your travel companies would list wifi, leather seating, flat screen tv to make you comfortable.

The cars, both Pullmans and coaches, are all-steel, heavyand easy riding.' Number 2 - In a bizarre case of apartment fire, two mothers ended jumping with their babies to escape. The first one - jumped to the yard below from the second floor. The second one blindly threw the baby from the 2nd floor. The falling child stuck a little boy but was unhurt.Number 1 - New York City was considering lowering cab fares - possibly bringing it down from 60 cents per first mile to 40 cents first mile.
