r ■ ■ ■ — A QUESTION TO BE DECIDED. The civil tribunal of Melum, in the department of the Seine-et-Marne, has decided that a landowner is not entitled to destroy upon his own property' birds which feed on animals and insects injurious to his neighbours. The plaintiff in this case alleged that M. de Segonzac had ordered his gamekeeper to place upon posts not far from his (the plaintiff's) lan i snares, in which owls, bats, and other night birds were fre quently caught; that, in spite of the repeated com- plaints made, the destruction continued, and that in consequence the mice and other vermin had increased to such an extent as to spoil his crops. The tribunal, holding that these facts, if proved, would render the defendant liable for damages, have appointed three neighbouring farmers as experts to ascertain what damage, if any, has been done to the plaintiff's crops, and whether it has been caused by animals whose presence on his land is due to the destruction of birds of prey by the defendant. In the event of their answering these two questions in the-affirmative, they are to assess the amount of damage done and report to the tribunal.-Pall Mali Gazette.
