Two cows recently went astray at

a negro and the other to a white man
named Shields. A cow answering the j
' description of either of the two ani
real? was purchased by a farmer not
long sinee. The bereaved men heard
of the purchase and each claimed the
ar.imal and presented proof equally
convincing. The case came up before j
a judge and the jury heard the evi
dence, but. as the witnesses for each
party described the same cow, they '
were unable to give a decision. Then
the judge said he would turn the cow J
out on the green. If she went toward
the Degro's farm, she would be his; if i
