Notes of Cases Recently Decided
Which Are of Interest to
CARTER V. SOUTHERN RY. CO.
Supreme . Court of Georgia.
June 5, 1900.
A PERSON "WHO HAS CHARGE OF
THE GOODS OF ANOTHER AND
CONTRACTS WITH A CARRIER
TO SHIP THEM, WITHOUT DIS?
CLOSING HIS AGENCY. MAY
MAINTAIN AN ACTION IN HIS
OWN NAME FOR A BREACH OF
Carter sued the railroad company for
damages resulting from the breach of
a contract ot .shipment which the de?
fendant bad entered into with the
plaintiff. On the trial the plaint iff in?
troduced in evidence a receipt signed
by an agent of the defendant, of which
the following is a copy: "Received
from W. R. Carter the following arti?
cles in apparent good order, contents
and value unknown, as per coupon at?
tached, to be transported to W. R. Car?
ter. McRae, Ga.,"?setting forth the ar?
ticles shipped. The plaintiff testified
that the distance from the point from
which the goods were shipped to their
destination was thirty miles: that they
should have been delivered in twenty
four hours, which was a reasonable
time; that the goods wore new, and in
good condition, when delivered to the
defendant; that they were not deliv?
ered by it at the point to which they
wore shipped until twenty-five days
had elapsed from tho time they were
delivered to tho defendant; and that,
when delivered, some of the goods were
In such a damaged condition that they
were rendered worthless, and all of
them were more or less damaged. Just
before leaving the witness stand the
"The goods belonged to my wife.
Mary < 'arter. Sho owned them and I
had tho goods In my charge as her
There being no further evidence for
the plaintiff, the court, upon motion of
defendant's counsel, granted a non-suit
on the ground that the goods alleged
to have boon dnmngod tlid not belong
to the plaintiff, but to his wife. To this
judgment the phi in tiff excepted.
The court says:
The question presented for decision
is whether or not tho plaintiff could
maintain the action in his own name.
It Is an elementary principle that tho
action on a contract must he brought
In the name of tho party in whom the
legal interest Is vested, and that the
legal Interest In a contract is in tho
person to whom the promise is 'made,
and from whom Ihe consideration
passes. In the present case the plaintiff,
although in reality he occupied the re?
lation of agent of his -wife to take
charge of the goods shipped, was
named both as tho consignor nntl con?
signee in tho contract of shipment,
with no reference whatever therein to
the fact of his agency. Under such
circumstances the action could be
maintained In his own name. Gene?
rally. It Is true, an agent has no right
of notion upon a contract made with
his principal, but he has a right of ac?
tion In his own name "where the con?
tract Is made with the agent In Ills in?
dividual name, though his agency bo
known." Certainly, the action could be
maintained where the fact of agency
and the name of the principal arc both
concealed by the agent. In such a case
the agent is, In contemplation of law,
the real contracting party, to whom
the promise of the other party was
made, and who Is entitled to enforce it.
Rut tho plaintiff was the consignor of
the goods shipped. The contract was
made with him and he is primarily lia?
ble for tho transportation charges.
The carrier dealt with him as the
owner of tho goods, and could not. in
tin action by the plaintiff to recover
the goods, dispute tho title, unless the
title of the real owner was sought to
to enforce against the carrier.
The courts of both this country and
England are now. with a few excep?
tions, all agreed that, where the con?
signor makes the contract of shipment
with the carrier, he may bring an ac?
tion for loss of oi?Injury fB the coii
signment, although ho may not bo the
actual owner of the property. In such
a. case tho privity of contrnct between
the carrier and tho consignor is a suffi?
cient foundation on Which to base the
aid Ion. It is also well sol tied by the
authorities that where a consignor,
who Is himself not the real owner, re
TIlO Digesting Clement I.ell Out.
Bread dyspepsia Is common. It ef?
fects the bowels becauye white bread
Is nearly all starch, ami starch \a di?
gested in the Intestines, not in the
stomach proper. Up under the shell of
the wheat berry. Nature bus provided
a curious deposit which is turned into
diastase when it is subjected to the
saliva and to the pancreatic juices in
the human inie.stu.es.
This diastase is absolutely necessary
to digest starch and turn it into grape
sugar, which is the next form: but thai
part of tho wheat berry makes ihn!:
Hour, and the modern miller cannot
! readily sell dark Hour, so natures' val?
uable dlgcstor is thrown out and the
human system must handle the starch
as best it can. without tho help that
i Small wonder that appendicitis, per?
itonitis, constipation, and all sorts of
trouble exist, when we go so contrary
to Nature's law. The food experts that
perfected Grape-Nuts Food, knowing
these ftuds, made use, in their experl
iiu nts, of the entire wheat and barley,
including all the parts, and subjected
them to moisture, and long continued
warmth, which allows time and the
proper conditions for developing the
diastase, outside of the human body.
I In ibis way the starchy part is trans
; formed into grape sugar in a perfectly
natural manner, without the use of
chemicals of any outside ingredients.
The little sparkling crystals of grape
sugar can be seen on the pieces of
Grape-Nuts. This food therefore is na?
turally prcdlgestod and its use in piece
of broad will quickly correct the
troubles that have been brought about
by tho too free use of starch in the
food, and that is very common in the
human race to-day.
The effect of eating Grape-Nuts'ten
days or two weeks, nntl the discontinu?
ance of ordinary white bread. Is very
marked. The user will gain rapidly In
strength and physical and mental
covers damages from the carrier for n I
breach of the contract of carriage, the
recovery inures to the benefit of the
owner, and the consignor is regarded
simply as the trustee of an express
trust: It would seem to follow nc ?es
sarily from this that a recovery by
the consignor for n breach of the con?
tract would be a bar to an action by
the owner in tort for the Injury done
him. The English courts have, so far
as we are aware, uniformly adhered to
the rule that an action for a breach of
a contract of carriage made with the
consignor may be maintained by him.

Yesterday's Washington Post says:
"It is gratifying to know that
through the persistent efforts of ad?
mirers of Edgar Allen Poe. the cot?
tage at Fordhnm which he occupied
during the time ol his literary en?
gagements in New York city has been
preserved. Ford ham, now a suburb
of New York, lias come within the
sc.'i.i" municipal government, and
the cottage stood directly in the pro?
posed direction of an avenue, but
other plans were adopted in order to
avoid its removal.
"1 recently visited Fordhnm. where
the quaint old cottage stands witli its
gable end to the street, and on which
has ben placed an ornamental metal?
lic plate bearing the inscription, "Poo
Cottage," ami the llgure of a raven,
beneath which are 1844-'49, the term of
Poe's residence in New York and occu?
pation of the cottage. Handsome
dwellings have been erected in the lo?
cality, which are known as Poe villas,
and are owned and rented by people
of wealth and culture. The scheme of
preserving the cottage, beautifying its
surroundings and attaching Poo's
name to the charming area Is indeed a
touching memorial to the poet.
STORY UP AX UNPUBLISHED
"It may not bo generally known
that Poo wrote a poem of keenest sa?
tire, the publication of which, for
some reason now unknown, he sup?
pressed. To substantiate this asser?
tion 1 will slate the following facts:
In the early sixties I formed the ac?
quaintance of a gentleman whose
mother adopted Poe's sister at. the
time that Mr. Allan, ol Richmond,
adopted Edgar. The former gentle?
man and Poe were intimately asso?
ciated from childhood up to the time
of the poet's death. On a certain oc?
casion lie remarked to me that 'the
best poem Poe ever wrote had never
been published,' and recited it to me
then, and several times afterward. It.
was a merciless satire, of perhaps
of twelve or fourteen stanzas, con?
cerning a rival in n love affair who
was a dry goods clerk In Richmond.
1 am strongly of the opinion that my
friend told me that the original manu?
script of tho poem had been preserved
by Iiis family. It might, by proper ef?
fort, be secured and given to the
There is another matter which sug?
gests itself in connection with the poet,
a matter which I do not refer to ex?
cept after long consideration, and one
Which has received the attention and
careful investigation of certain men
prominent in tin- literary world. This
is concerning the birthplace of the
BIRTHPLACE OF POE.
Of course it has ever been recognized
as a fail beyond question that I'on was
born in Boston. Rut there are men of
conservative judgment, widely known
by reason of their high rank in litera?
ture, who, after having made exhaus?
tive Investigation, claim that the poet
was born in Norfolk, Ya. The follow?
ing facts have led lo this conclusion.
Poe's parents were members of the
theatrical profession, and a short while
before the dato of the poet'8 birth a
company by which the father was en?
gaged became stranded in the above
eii v. The foes remained in Norfolk for
several weeks after the company dis?
banded, and during this period a child
was born to them in the old homestead
of my family, where they had been in?
vited to reside during their stay In Nor?
folk, it is claimed that the child was
Hie first of the two children horn to
the parents: that Edgar was older than
his sister, and, therefore, that it was
he who was born at the above place
The little family went on to Boston
shortly afterward, and it is plausibly
stated that it might have been witli a
?i i. ???? it. i ?ininutiug till niv.u'intinn of
their straitened pecuniary condition at
the time with the event of the birth of
their child that Bps ton, where they
were soon happily situated, was
claimed by the parents to be the birth?
place of itie infant.
The above theory has been maintain?
ed for many years by men whoso judg?
ment cannot be lightly regarded, but
this is. perhaps, the first time that it
lias been presented for public consid?

EXPORTS FROM SOUTHERN
SOUTH'S GAIN IN EXPORTS NEAR?
LY DOUBLE PERCENTAGE OF
NORTHERN P< ?RTS.
The tendency of exports to seek the
s. a at Southern ports?u tendency
that has caused great alarm at many
Northern ports, particularly nt New
York? Is a gratifying proof of the fact
that the port:: of Hie South have ail-]
vantages of location that are steadily
receiving increasing recognition. Of
the exports of the li st fiscal year 34.6
per ( 'tit. went from Southern ports.
The percentage of gain at all Southern
ports was above the percentage of gain
for all ports, ami the percentage of gain
at the twenty-five Southern ports was
j much in excess of the percentage of
j gain at the twenty-one Northern ports,
as is shown by the following figures:
While Hi'- twenty-one Ninth Atlantic
ports increased their exports from
$667,925,573 i<< $733,360.675, or $65,432,102,1
the twenty-five Southern ports in?
creased their exports from $411,517,908
to $484,643,577, or $73,125,669. Thus the
per cent, of increase of the North At?
lantic ports was .01? S-10, while that of
the S?uthcrri ports was ,17%, or almost
Much of this Increase comes from
raw and manufactured products of
Southern origin, such us textiles, cot?
ton seed oil a ml other by-products of
the cotton plant, naval stores, crude
phosphates, tobacco, timber products.
