HAIGHT'S QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
for Bar Examination Review A thoroughly up-to-date book for the use of Law Students in all the States in preparing for
Bar or Law School Examinations By CHARLES S. HAIGHT and ARTHUR M. MARSH
From Hon. WILLIAM K. TOWNSEND, Judge of U. S. District Court, Conn., and Professor of
Law in Yale Law School.--"I have critically examined the copy of Haight's Questions and Answers' which you were good enough to send me. It is the best book of the sort I have ever found. I have been much interested to see how many questions and cases which I am in the habit of discussing with my students in the class room at the Yale Law Schoolare here succinctly presented. The book is unique in that it does not enable the student to cram answers, but does oblige him to supply principles. It is so directly in line with my law school work here,
that I shall hope hereafter to make use of it in the class room. From Professor GEORGE W. KIRCHWEY, of Columbia University Law School.-" It ought to be
of incalculable benefit to the horde of young men who come to the bar examinations every
year without a thorough training in law.' From Professor JOHN J. TOBIAS, of the Chicago Law School.-"I have carefully examined the
copy of Haight's Quiz Book' which I have received. It is timely so far as work is concerned in my preparation for written examinations. It is just the work I have been looking for, inasmuch as I can give on each subject some of your hypothetical cases and thus aid in training the students for the bar examination. I shall take pleasure also in referring the text to my
senior and post-graduate students when they are preparing for the bar examination." From JOHN M. HARRIS, Chairman of Board of Examiners for Admission to the Bar, Scranton,
Pa.-"I do hesitate to pronounce it the best work for the purposes intended tha thas appeared. It is as valuable to the lawyer as a book of reference to the fundamental principles of the law as it is to the student preparing for Bar Examinations. I shall call the attention of our
students to its merits." From Hon. JAMES P. ANDREWS, Supreme Court Reporter, Hartford, Conn.-" Haight's
Questions and Answers 'is an admirable volume, not only for the use of the student but for the practitioner as well
. I have examined it with interest and advantage. Bar examinations ought to lose all thetr terrors for the young man who is familiar with the principles the book lays down and so aptly enforces ; and to my mind there is no way in which the student may
readily test his legal attainments than by attempting to answer the questions propounded." From Hon. DAVID TORRENCE, Judge of the Supreme Court of Conn, and Professor of Law in
Yale Law School.—“I have looked over, with great pleasure, and somewhat carefully, 'Haight's Questions and Answers,' a copy of which you kindly sent me a few days ago. I like the book very much. In the topics selected, and in the treatment of each, terse, full, comprehensive, it cannot well be improved upon for the object it is intended to subserve. It seems to me that its use will not only be indispensable to the law student before admission to the bar, but also to the young lawyer after admission for purposes of study and review."
In this work the authors, it is believed, have met the needs of law students in a more thorough and satisfactory way than has ever been done before.
The book covers all the subjects embraced in a full law course, and may also be used to advantage by lawyers as a book for speedy reference, and will be especially useful to those who have but limited use of a library. As far as such a thing is possible, it is a pocket encyclopaedia of legal principles and leading cases.

BAKER, VOORHIS Q CO., 66 Nassau St., New York.
A new, up-to-date and comprehensive treatise on the law of mines and mining claims, and of cognate and kindred questions, including mining, locating and hold ing mining claims upon the public domain, comprising as well the acquisition of coal, oil, gas and all hydro-carbons.
Likewise, mining in other parts of the United States for coal and precious metals, including that under the leasing system ; also the law of gas and oil bor. ing, being in this respect an entirely new, complete and exhaustive treatment of the law, ng the complex questions constantly arising under gas and oil leases.
A WORK General in character, and weaving, as it does, the entire mass of mining law into one harmonious whole, showing all the dependent and linking parts, it will be found useful alike to the practitioner in the mining regions of Alabama, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Illinois, Missouri, California, Colorado, Nevada, Montana, Texas and Utah, as well as every other state and territory of the Union where mining interests are in any form, including the boring for oil and gas, is carried on.
Useful also to the busy practitioner in the large cities remote from actual mining operations, where corporations owning and operating large mining usually centered.
The book is the result of twenty-five years' careful study and active practice in one of the districts of the country where mining in all its forms has been an important industry and fruitful field of litigation for over a quarter of a century, where the author, from personal contact and opportunities for study, has been closely associated with much of the formative litigation of the age.
As indicated above, this work covers a broad and important field. The author has spent many years in its preparation, and has spared neither time nor pains in making it complete, exhaustive and authoritative.
All the decisions of England and this country reflecting any light upon the subject have been examined and cited.
