torney for Lancaster county appealed -
pealed to the supreme , court ' which
court reversed and dismissed the
case , holding that a county is' nOt ,
an insurer of those who , cross its
bridges , and if injured because
of some latent defect which . can " . '
not be discovered . by . the ordinary , .
tests and examination the county
is not liable Richardson county ' .
