SUING THE RAILROADS.
The Section Master's Wife Who Gave l
the Tramp Sour Collards.
[o the rditor of the State. '

presietlnt of the old Central railroad

V011i's 111'1). Ilatied all a nl sill bU lit
111ue i1cid(lent tf an anti-railroad suit
that was tried in a small town in
Texas inl the latter part of P8S. An
.Jbsi-act of the case set forth that t
-a weaI Willie' cointingo erossties
(liM Summ111Ierl a Itel'Ilooli. came upon the I
Scvne of a section master's humble
lmestead locatei upol the right of
way. He made the usual call for food
and the section master's wife had
nothing to offer the wayfarer except
a dish of cold collards, which had
beein left from the noonday meal,
which she gave Willie. Willie ate of
them and I imagine lie licked the
plate. When he finished. lie plodded
on towards the town and upon reach
ing a convenient point. he lay down
and sought rest. In the early hours
of the succeeding morning Willie de
veloped a severe case of colie and in
his pains he uttered many groans and
moans. About that time a lawyer was
passing nearby and sought the cause
of the disturbance. Upon converse
with Willie, he soon learned the facts
as set forth and provided (excuse the t
legal phrase). "Willie," said the,
man of law, "you have, sir, a ground
of action for damages against the .
railroad company. Come to my office
and I will draw up thee omplaint."
In due time the case was tried and
Willie secured a judgment against the I
"common carrier'' upon the .ground .
that the section master's wife had
given Willie a dish of cold collards to
eat: that the collards had been kept
until they had become soured; that the
defendant knew om should have known
the collards to have beei highly in
digestible and unfit to be taken into
the human stomach: further, that the
section master was an agent of the
said railroad company and that his
wife being unto him ''a partner'' that

was clearly established.
I have heard. that a large nmber
of fine Jersey and Holstein cows are
annually killed by railways, but no
one ever heard of the untimely death
of the old bob-tailed, butt-head breed
by this agency. I don 't know why.
this is. I guess it would take a Phil
adelphia lawyer to find the reason.
I was knocking about in Georgia
some years ago and I lived by a rail
road that was pretty hard up and ran
poor equipment and just managed to
pay taxes and expenses. Nobody ever
sued the poor old M. & K. G. Co., H
while in the next county there ran
through the great rich and powerful
"Central." They used to have to 1
hold three or four special terms of
common pleas to keep the docket clear
of cases and 90 per cent. of these liti
gations were damage suits against the
railroad. I asked a friend why our '
line was never "jacked up" too, and
he said Georgia lawyers ain't got
time to hunt "birds ' nests" when
they can sit around and pick up nug
. Now~ I have often wondered what
my old friend meant. I never could
search out a riddle, so I'll leave it to
the same old lawyer up in Philadel- .
phia to solve.

The few persons to whom it was
known that this was to be the honey

it as a splendid specimem of the pal-'
