Lane sued Walter Sands for 13s. 10s., goods sold and delivered and wrongful use of horse and cart. A counter-claim for wages (14s.) was put in.—Mr F. P. Treasure (Gloucester and Cirencester) appeared for the plaintiff.—Judgment for plaintiff on the claim and counter-claim. BREACH OF WARRANTY. I Henry Jinks, Hewell's Farm, Broms- berrow Heath, sued William Bishop, Broms- feerrow Heath, to recover 120 damages for breach of warranty. Mr H W Orme; (Messrs Russell and Co Ledbury), appeared for defendant.—A Jury was 6mpauelledito try the ease. Plaintiff said that on January 28th he bought an iron grey horse from the defen- dant, who warranted it sound and free from aide-bones. He used it on the land plough- ing, harrowing, etc., up to March 28th, when he had occasion to send to Djrmock Railway Station, and it went very lame whilst on the road. He sent it to the black- smith to h shod and have its feet examined, and he I it bad side-bones. Henry Efardman, living with plaintiff, said he was present when the defendant said to plaintiff that the horse was perfectly sound and free from side-bones. Two days later the same conversation took plact. The first time it was used on the road (March ?Sth) it went very lame, George Cooper, Ryton, in the employ of plaintiff, said he took the horse to Dymock Station on March 28th, and it went very lame coming back. Thinking that perhaps there was something in his feet he took it to the blacksmith to have it examined and shod. W J Boyd, veterinary surgeon, Ledbury, said he examined the horse on April 9th for Mr Jinks, and found it had side-bones in both fore legs, and was lame. The side- bones were well marked and could easily be discerned. In all probability the horse would go lame directly it was worked on the road. The horse would not be worth £ 28 to work only on the land. The defendant said he did not warrant the horse sound and free from side-bones. Plaintiff only asked if the horse had been bad, and be (defendant) said no. The horse had never been lame whilst he bad it. Over two months elapsed before plaintiff wanted him to have-the horse back. Jinks then said that the horse had side- bones. He replied Yes, I know it has." Arthur Porkins, farm bailiff; spoke as to the horse being a good worker. He had used it for six weeks. W Watkins,roadman, and JhmesHill, road- man. both said they had used the horse on the water cart when road-making, and it was a good worker. It did not show any lame- ness whille> they used it, which, was different dates. William Hodges, of the BfellUnn, Ledbury, said he. heard Bishop say to Jlinks that it was a good' working horse. Alice Dennett, Bromsberrow. said she heard Jinks-say to Biahep some time afterwards that he was pleased with the horse. George Bishop, ChurchiFiwrn, Berrow, said be. knew the horse as a good worker, though it bad side-bones. The jury foundfo* thedefendant, and judg- ment was entered accordingly with costs. uiasier schedule A.
