In 1882 Dr. William W. Iliggs was
practicing medicine in Weeping
Water. Some time during that year
Joseph N. Thompson, an employe
of the stone quarry, was struck in
the eye by a small piece of stone.
Thompson went to the above-named
doctor for treatment. The rl
bade the patient accompany him to
a drug store, where he mixed blue
vitriol with some other medicine
and put it into his eye to get the
piece of stone out. The medicine
caused Mr. Thompson to lose th
use of his eye and he brought suit
against Iliggs for $200 damages, re
laming ii. it. Ira vis as his attorney
Iliggs obtained a change ot venue
to Louisville and the case was tried
before Esquire Cleghorn and a inn'
Higgs retained Gibson & Meickle,
and, in the meantime, B. S. Ramsey
had been secured to help Mr.

being awarded a verdict for $200.
The defendant appealed the case,
but failed to have his appeal bond
filed within ten days. It was mailed
on the tenth day at Weeping- Water,

destination until the eleventh after
judgment was rendered. The bond
was filed by Cleghorn, both as to
form and sufficiency, but not as to
