No. 4367.

November 5, 1924.

In Error to the District Court of the United States for the Northern District of Texas; Edward R. Meek, Judge.

Action by Susan R. Brodhead against the Patterson Oil Company. Judgment for plaintiff, and defendant brings error. Affirmed.

E.J. Miller, of Brownwood, Tex. (Jenkins Miller, of Brownwood, Tex., on the brief), for plaintiff in error.

H.E. Jackson, of San Angelo, Tex. (Collins Jackson, of San Angelo, Tex., on the brief), for defendant in error.

Before WALKER and BRYAN, Circuit Judges, and DAWKINS, District Judge.

What is relied on as the ground for reversing the judgment in this case is the action of the court in overruling a motion for a continuance made by the plaintiff in error, the defendant below. The record contains no bill of exceptions. Without a bill of exceptions, the motion for a continuance and the court's ruling thereon are not properly presented for consideration by an appellate court.

Furthermore, the record before us does not in any way indicate that the facts alleged in the motion as grounds for a continuance were admitted or proved. For aught that in any way is disclosed, the ruling complained of may have resulted from a finding of the nonexistence of the facts alleged on the motion. The record shows no error.

The judgment is affirmed.
