The plaintiiï claitned hal the defendant had agreed to give is sheep tame pasturage and water nd care for them, while the defendnt claimed tLey were only to have orinary woods pasture without care. ?he alleged damages in the case arose rom tlie death of four sheep and the epreciation in valué oí others. The plaintiffs were represented hy Blum & Awrey, and the defendant by A F. & f. W. Freeman,who fought every inch f the case. The jury consistedof Wm. Pierce, Bert Hammond, Grove ïouse, William Brainard, Henry Jewtt and John Keinfrank. The case was commenced at 1 p. m, and given o the jury at 9:30 p. m. They were out until midnight, when they brought n a verdict of no cause of action. Al hough the justice office is large, every available foot of space was filled with nterested listeners. The air in the roem was so hot and close that the case had once to be adjourned üve minutes to revive one of the attorneys who was about fainting. The case wil probably be appealed.
