PREFACE.

In a

IN
N the use by the Profession of the various statutes

relating to Sheriff-Court practice, passages frequently occur which give rise to serious doubts as to the proper construction to be put on them. number of instances of this kind the ruling of the Supreme Court has been obtained, and the chief object of the present volume is to give in a convenient form the cases which illustrate the interpretation to which the Court has given the sanction of its authority. Wherever it has seemed desirable, the principles which have guided the Court in arriving at a decision have also been given, together with the dicta of the Bench when these have appeared still further to elucidate the points of law or practice under consideration.

The Acts which have thus been illustrated, in so far as applicable to Sheriff-Court practice, have been printed at length, and the illustrations have been subjoined to the respective sections to which they bear reference. Statutory alterations, where they occur, have been pointed out, and notes of reference to other Acts and cases have been given where it has appeared desirable to do so.
