Rutland railroad, which hns been on for
the past four days, the evidence was com
pleted nt 11:30 a, m., to-day. II, H. Powers

negligent In the operation of Its trains
ind that It was not bound to reach the
market at any particular time. The court
held that the defendant was hound to
hold reasonable diligence to transport the
plaintiff stock (n tlmo for the market
and that Its failure to arrive according to
the usual course of the operations of tho
trains wns prima faclo evldenco of want
of due care and diligence. Tho court
furthor held that tho defendant could not
by a contract to tho shipper avoid or
limit Ub liability for thn ncgllKoneo of
Its servants. I,, c, HusseiU bcKnn thn
