The Lawyers' Reports Annotated are the best daily help of any set of law books on the market.

Why? Because they give you just what you want, just in the shape you want it, viz.: in the form of a perfectly exhaustive brief on all sides of just the narrow briefpoint you are looking up.

You go to digests, spend days or weeks picking out cases from a wilderness of useful and worthless material, all of which they must classily,- put, perhaps where you'd look for them, perhaps not. You take down other general books and text-books. They talk all around your subject -generalize from the comparatively few cases they givefor they don't pretend to be exhaustive of the cases.

But you can find in a note in L. R. A. an absolutely exhaustive review of all the cases on its brief-point, suller and more complete than any digest, encyclopædia or textbook.

Let us send you, free, “INDEX TO Notes” or briefpoints, with a sample part.

A NEW POCKET EDITION

OF THE

Chase's Pocket Code

NEW YORK
CODE OF CIVIL
PROCEDURE

As Amended to the Close of the Legislative Session of 1901
with comprehensive Table of Cited Cases which have

Construed the Sections of the Code.
By GEORGE CHASE,
Dean of the New York Law School, New York City.
N preparing this new edition of the Code, special pains have

been taken in the selection of paper, choice of type, and
size of page, etc., to produce a book that shall be as compact
and convenient in size and shape as possible and at the

same time easily readable. The type will be clear and distinct and of good size so as to be read without difficulty. Head-lines in bold-faced type will be prefixed to each section so as to give a ready clue to its contents. A classified Table of Contents, and running head-lines to the pages, indicating their subject-matter, will also be important aids in facilitating research. The sources from which the different sections have been derived will also be fully stated.

Special features of this edition will be (1) a new and comprehensive INDEX, much more complete than those commonly in use; and (2) a TABLE OF CASES from the Reports, in which the various sections of the Code have been cited and construed. This collection of Cases will be fuller and more complete than any that has yet been published. Especially will this be true of Cases decided by the Court of Appeals, which are, of course, of the highest value as determining with final authority the meaning and application of the Code provisions. It is believed that this Table of Cases will be found by judges and lawyers to be of very great usefulness. When a section of the Code has different subdivisions, the Cases which relate to each subdivision will be so designated.

· A New Book of vital importance to City Solicitors and all Lawyers either prosecuting or defending suits against Municipalities for Tort and Negligence.

The great extension of the field which the writ of injunction is to cover has necessitated an entirely new edition of Mr. Spelling's admirable work. The subject has been revised, enlarged, and brought down to date by the author, and his treatise is now more complete and valuable than ever before.

In no book are Extraordinary Remedies treated more thoroughly, their uses better defined, and the way of obtaining the writs and privileges they confer more clearly stated.

Mr. WILLIAMS discusses Public Corporations like Cities, Bor. oughs, and Villages, and Quasi Cor. porations like Counties, Townships, and School Districts, which by their voluntary acts, have become more than mere territorial divisions; their Public Duties; their duties of a Private Nature, and their Executory Duties.
