Rogalle had a different opinion of our jail this morning after spending the night within the four walls. He told Justice Ripple that he would rather sleep with his bears than in the jail, but of course that is simply a matter of taste. The charge against Rogalle was for carrying concealed weapons and being drunk. As to the first charge he proved to the Justice that he 'needs a pistol in his business. He said he only 'carries the weapon while sleeping with his bears as a means of protection in case they should be attacked with the jim-jams or try to dance the hootchie-cootchie.

LAW ON CONTRACTS Made by Agents for Jewelry Advertisement. CUT. MAKER LOSES THE TIME On Proving Cuts no 'Good-An Important Decision by Judge Stake. tached moncy in hands for W. C.

Newman Company, have costs growing out of the non pros of the appeal case of the Bates Advertising Syndicate against Newman ft Company last Noyember which they lost not being so lucky as a jewelry firm in Cumberland in similar case. The case 11p there was that Doolittle vs. Powell being an effort on the part of the appellant to recover on an order for fifty-two newspaper cuts, suitable to advertise the jewelry business, given by the appellee. Mr. Powell after finding them unsatisfactory refused to accept use them and declined payment.

Judge Stake said in reference to the case: becomes quite one of a common class in of the cases rural that sec- has tions. A canvasser from some city establishment comes into a community and with a mellifluous voice, and pleasant manner obtains the signature of a number of persons to a printed contract Sometimes it takes the shape of a seduce lady book canvasser for a ten or fifteen dollar book and a long list of after, often before the angelic vision of names are at once obtained. Soon therefemale loveliness has faded, from the recollection of the willing subscribers, a large, burly and pugilistic looking man, whom it looks dangerous to defy, comes along and delivers a book or set of books for seventy-five dollars, and the victim finds out there is enough of printed terms in fine type over his name, to compel payment of the whole amount claimed. In this case it is presented in the shape of a contract to pay for fiftytwo clectrotype cuts to advertise the jewelry business. Numerous cases in this state, notably Rice vs.

Forsythe 41 assert the proposition that in all cases of the sale of personal property of this character, there is an implied warrunty, that the goods shall be reasonably fit for the purpose for which they are sold, and in this principle Is" applied in all its force and vigor. The testimony of Mr. Powell which was admitted without objection, and of the pressman of the newspaper, shows conclusively that the cuts were not of the quality to fultil such an implied warranty. was strongly urged by the appellant's attorney that as Mr. Powell used some of the was entitled to pay for them, but I can not assent to this for several reasons: 1st, until the defendant had tried them he could not form a correct conclusion of their quality and worth, as adyertising articles, and 2d, the contract is entirety.

The obligation of the appellant is to furnish fifty-two, one for each week in the year, not to furnish seven.or twelve electrotypes answering the description in the contract and recover for them. In the case of Solmon vs Bodkyn, Md. 541, where the contract was to furnish seven hundred and eighty tons of kanit, it was the vendor could not rest upon a furnishing of seven hundred and seven tong. The appellant could not take upon himself to furnish less than the whole fifty-two of the requisite quality and have any standing in court. If those that Mr.

Powell tried were found wanting, it is no performance of the contract on the part of the appellant to say that others which Mr. Powell did not open or use, may have been all right. Mr. Powell returned them to the appellant and has done all that law requires in discharge of the contract. The judgment of the justice in favor of Powell will therefore be aflirmed.
