In witness, &c., las in Notice by Judges to the Commissioners op shee Appeal.)

A Dog, iu the habit of attacking passers-by, is in law a nuisance which any one is free to remove, by killing or otherwise. In case of suit, the party killing him ne-á not prove that he was obliged to kill him in self-defence.

Any one killing a harmless or inoffensive dog, is liable in dama ges to the owner; but in an action to recover damages for killing a dog, the opinions of witnesses as to its value are not admissible in evidence. The jury are the judges of the animal's value. Any dog in the habit of attacking, worrying or killing sheep, or other useful animals, may be killed by order of a magistrate.

The owner of a dog is liable for all damage the animal may do to another's cattle or other property.

The owner of a stray horse or horses, or other animal or animals, is liable in damages for all injuries it or they may do to others' pra perty. Should the owner, for the sake of avoiding the payment of the damage, disclaim ownership, the animal or animals may be sold by order of a magistrate, and the damages paid, on application, by the supervisors.

Whenever a stray animal comes upon the premises of any party, che latter should give immediate notice of the same, in writing, to the Town Clerk. If this notice is not given within ten days of the arrival of the stray, the party can recover no compensation for the keoping of the animal. It is the duty of the Town Clerk to keep a record, open for public inspection, of all such notices. The Clerk's fee for entering the notice must be paid by the party pro. senting it. The latter has the right to detain the animal or ani. mals till all reasonable charges for keeping the same, together with the Clerk's fees, are paid. The Fence Viewers of the town are to decide upon the fairness of the charges. If, at the expira. tion of five months, no owner appear, or if he or they appear, and refuse or neglect to pay the charges, the party on whose premisor the animal or animals have come, may sell the same to the highes. bidder at public auction. Out of the proceeds of the sale, he may retain sufficient to pay his bill of charges; the remainder must be paid to the owner of the strays, if he demands the same ; if not
