LEGAL PHANTOMS. Many Statutes That Exist Only In the Imagination. Tiitny people nave tne idea that it one owes a bill and goes to his debtor and tells bim that he is willing to pay and then offers some trifling sum on account, say $1 or even less per week or month, the creditor is obliged to take it, utterly regardless of the fact that if creditors were obliged to re ceive payment in that way it would put most of them out of business in a very short period. .There is 110 such law. In .the minds ot very many people, especially la the country districts, there is another firmly fixed idea tbat if one person strikes another first the person assaulted may then all but pound the other to death. There is no such law. A person assaulted has the right to defend himself, but he may not use any more force than necessary to do that. To use more than necessary force completely turns the tables, and the assaulted becomes the aggressor and liable for bis excess of zeal in damages commensurate with the dam age done. A person has the right to order an undesirable person from his premises and to use sufficient force to eject him If be does not go when . so ordered, but he has no light to acceler ate his movements with one or more well placed kicks. Many people who owe bills labor un der a strong impression tbat it is the duty of their creditors to come to them for their money. There is no such law. There is a proverb which says. "The borrower Is servant to the lender." The bank will not come to you If you owe a note which, it holds for collec tion.

Many think because of that tho neighbor Is entitled to the fruit 011 the overhanging branches. There is no such law. If the tree sat upon the line be tween the estates the neighbor would be entitled to one-half of the fruit, but being wholly on one side the owner is entitled to all the fruit and may go upou bis neighbor's land and gather It without being guilty of trespass. If the neighbor does not like this ar rangement he may take his ax or saw aud cut the limbs off at the line be tween the estates, but he must throw them on his neighbor's land, as the wood of the tree belongs to him. The owner of the tree may not like to have bis tree treated thus, but be cannot help himself. Txx-o nr.en own adjacent lots of land. One wishes to bare a fence between them; the other does not. Mt ny people think that one may build the fence and compel ts other to pay for half of it There is no such law. In such a case one owner may call in the fence viewers and have them ascertain the line and designate which part of the fence each shall build. Neither party, however, can compel the other to build any particular style of fence. The mover in the matter may want a fancy fence, but the other may build his half of any material satis factory to himself, and so long as It Is a legal fence be cannot be compelled to build any other.
