be certainly has a "calling.” Assuming, however, that the receipt is a bill of sale and a transfer for the purposes of the Act, it clearly does not become a transfer further or otherwise, and therefore neither the property nor possession passed by it. The plaintiff contracted for the parchase of the wholo of the goods, paid the money, and the goods were delivered to him and left in his possession, and I think the property and possession thereby passed to bim, and the contract for sale was not controlled by the receipt given immediately afterwards, or the inventory wbich followed. I rely also, very strongly, on the absence of any description or mention of the goods in the receipt, and therefore it cannot be regarded as a bill of sale even for the parposes of the Act, as it does not contain the terms of the contract. It must also be remembered that, according to the case of Hernaman v. Bovoker (4 W. R. 261), a sheriff · or bailiff is not restricted in the manner of sale, and no bill of sale, writing, or receipt is necessary; sale and delivery are sufficient title.
