Mr Carew gave judgment to day m two more cases brought by the Picturesque Atlas Gompany, the verdict m each case being for the Company. He said he thought the secret at the bottom of these cases was just thi«, that the canvasser had a skilful way of commending the work, laying particular stress upon the parts dealing with New Zealand or any other place which he found to interest the person being canvassed, and that he exercised considerable ability m readily meeting, any objection made to purchase on account of the cost or other reason, and by skilful precaution had induced a number of persons to forget ordinary caution and subscribe for a work which, upon cooler reflection, they did not want. However reprehensible it might be to take advantage of people m this manner, it was not that degree of fraud which would justify

the recision of a contract. Leave to appeal was granted m one case. Invercargill, July 30. The shop and dwelling occupied by J. Hunter, bootmaker, took fire to-day, but was extinguished with little damage Examination showed it was lit m two places. Hunter has been arrested for incendiarism.
