Mr. White, although not legally the owner, is the residuary trustee of a number of chickens belonging to his employer, Mr. Clairville Benedict. The above mentioned fowls have Ueen-'-maliciously and with criminal intent bunging around Wm. Brown's placii of residence He does not eharge them with direct assault, but Mrs. Brown finds it distinctly annoy­ ing to have to chase various Ply­ mouth Rocks and Leghorns out of the entree before it is fully cooked or to discover a Tew Cochin China's resting on-the piano keys. At least that is what Mr. Brown told Justice Mills, of Bedford Station, when Constable Towey escorted him thither to ex- E lain to the Court assembled what e had to say in regard to Jim White's charge- that he had appro­ priated one particularly fat and luscious fowl for certain dark and secret purposes of his own, connected with the culinary department. \1^* dis way, yo' Honnh,\ said Mr. Brown indignantly, \them chickens come pickin' an' pesterin' around my bouse all de time an' this one come to de chicken house do' an' kep''pickin' a l|ttle closer an' a little closer until be just naturally, got himself* jammed .someway.\ \Of course I ; run to help him get \\' he seigp such a squawkin' at tbat this here have been sold in the brief interval since the 1st of February.
