Old-time citizens of Astoria will
recollect the intricacies of a case grow
ing out of the joint ownership -of a
horse between Capt. Wass and W. H.
Twilight. A somewhat similar point
of interest was recently decided in
India. It seems that four men, part
ners in business, bought several bales
of India rugs, and also -some cotton
bales. That the rats might not destroy
the cotton ihey purchased a cat. They
agreed that each of the four should
own a particular leg of the cat; and
each adorned with beads and other
ornaments the leg thus apportioned to
him- The cat, by accident, injured
onef its legs. The owner of that
member wound around it a rag soaked
in coal oil. The cat, going too near the
hearth, set this rag on fire, and
being in great pain, rushed in among
the cotton bales where she was ac
customed to hunt rats. The cotton
and rugs thereby took fire and they
were burned up a total loss. The
three other parties brought suit to re
cover the value of the goods destroyed,
against the fourth partner who owned
this particular leg of the cat. The
judge examined the case, and decided
The leg that had the oiled rag on it
was hurt; the cat could not use that
leg; in fact, held uj ithat leg, and ran
with the other three legs. The three
unhurt legs, therefore, carried the fire
to the cotton, and are alone culpable.
The injured leg is not to be blamed.
The three partners who owned the
three legs with which tlie cat ran to
the cotton T7ill pay the whole value of
the bales to the partner who was the
proprietor of the injured leg.
