A HORSE CASK.—Ivor William Baldwin, colliery manager, Dean Forest, sued Albert Lewis, horse dealer and farmer, Priory Farm, Monmouth, for X20 Is, the price of a horse bought on April 29th.-Mr. Parsons (barrister) appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Herbert Williams (Monmouth), for defendant.—Mr. Parsons said defendant purchased a horse from plaintiff at Gloucester Market, on April 29th, for J620, and gave a cheque for that amount. The defendant three days later wrote to say that the horse was misrepresented at the time of sale, and intimated his intention of cancelling the cheque. He also said he would return the animal, but the horse had not been returned, and was now in the hands of a third party.—Mr. Herbert Williams said the horse was bought on a verbal warranty that it was good in harness."—Plaintiff said the reason why he sold it was that he had not enough work for it, and it was becoming unmanageable. He told defendant that at the time he sold it, and said it wanted good handling. He did not give a warranty nor use any words that could possibly be understood to convey that meaning. The horse was never returned to him it was put in the yard near his house, which belonged to Mr. Mason. Defendant tried the horse at Monmouth. At first it refused the collar, would only back and turn round, and on the way to the railway station kicked the trap several times. It would be shown that the horse was returned on May 2nd.—Other evidence having been called, his Honour gave judgmaiit for plaintiff for X21 Is., with costs.

Since that judgment was given jE2 had been paid. At the April Court plaintiff took out a judgment summons; the case was then adjourned to last Court, when the decision was that defend&nt, being a married woman, she could not be sent to prison for debt. The present summons was a second action for the same debt, and actually included the two monthly instalments for which the defendant held receipts.-His Honour said the County Court Act left him no option in the matter.
