one of the young ladies of the family
missed a diamond ring, which, it was
supposed, had been stolen from the
house. A few days later an adlvertise.
ment was noticed giving the nlame of the
little owner of the silk handkerchief,
and saying that something of interest
could be learned by calling at a desig
nated street and number. Th.e call was
made, and the hanadkerohief found with
the diamond ring wrapped up in it. The
family who had been at so much pains
to return the lost articles to their owi

JUDGE AnLISON, of .Philadelphia, has
held that under the law of Pennsylvania
a sale of goods by sample does not
amount to a warranty that the article
sold and to be delivered shall correspond
in quality with the sample. He says
the risk is that of the purchaser, who
must "beware of the seller" in all such
purchases. But he adds that where "a
sample is made the standard of quality,
an implication of warranty arises, as
where the buyer orders goods of the
same quality as the sample or the soller
undertakes to deliver them of the same
quality." Inaamauch as all the grain sold
in hulk and nearly all the merchandise
of the country is sold by sample and
can be traded in with expedition in nc
other way, it might be well to hold the
sellers to a stricter responsibility than im
implied in Judge Allison's decision.
