Excerpt: ...purchased the groceries; that she came to the store in the first place, and sometimes the children came, after the groceries; that some were taken away by them and some of them were delivered at the house; that he presented a statement of the account to her, and that she said she was short of money; that she would pay it when she got the money; that she would pay it-soon. "Q. Any further conversation than you detailed this morning? A. I do not remember the details; if I remember, I swore that she said she didn't have any money with her. Her husband was not at home then, but that she would pay it as soon as she could." " Q. At any other time did she make any statement in regard to her agreement to pay for the groceries, except what you have stated, that you remember of? A. No. Q. Vl1en you presented this bill to her did she deny her liability for it at any time? A. No." "Q. Did you evcr have any talk in 'regard to who was to pay for the groceries; if so, state it? A. I did not." The witness further testified that the defendant made some payments on the account; the amount paid by her the witness did not recollect. This constitutes the evidence on the part of the plaintiffs bearing on the question, and the evidence of the defendant tended to prove that she did not purchase the goods on her credit. ' It does not appear that, when she ordered the goods, the defendant, by any expression, indicated that she made the purchase on her personal credit, nor that she was informed by the seller that they were, or would be, furnished on her account, nor does it appear to whom the account, as presented to her, was charged. And, in fact, the seller says there was no talk with her as to who was to pay more
