Excerpt: ...into consideration "all the facts and circumstances on the trial, giving to the several parts of the evidence" such weight as they were entitled to in the opinion of the jury. While it is true that the jury should consider the evidence alone, and not extraneous facts or circumstances which may have fallen under their observation during the trial, yet we think the proper interpretation of the instruction will bring it within the legal rule. The "facts and circumstances on the trial" are limited by the instruction to "the several parts of the evidence" so that thejury could not be misled by the instruction when considered as a whole. We find no reversible error in the record, and the judgment of the district court is afiirmed. JUDGMENT AFFIRMED. THE other Judges concur. C. J. ELLIOTT ET AL., APPELLANTS, v.

In order to render a defendant liable to a lien for the services of the plaintiff's attorney, it is indispensable that a claim oflien be filed with the papers or given to such adverse party. Notice of a contract between the plaintiff and his client where no lien is claimed, will not bind the defendant or render him liable for the services of plaintiff's attorney. APPEAL from the district court of Lancaster county. Heard below before CHAPMAN, more
