Bailment is a word of French origin. signif- icant of the curtailed transfer, the dehvery or mere handing over, which is appropriate to the transaction. Schouler. Pets. mp. 695.

The test of a hnilment is that the identicai thin is to be returned; if another thing of equa value is to be returned, the transaction is a sale. Marsh v. Titus. 6 Thump. «S: C. (N. Y.) 29; Stunn v. ‘Poker. 150 U. S. 312, 14 Sup. Ct. 99, 37 L Ed. 1093.

Classification. Sir Wiiliam Jones has divided bailments into five sorts, namely: Depositu-m, or deposit; mundatum, or com- mission withont recompense; commodntum, or loan for use without pay: pignori occup- mm, or para; locatmn, or hiring, which is always with reward. This last in subdivid-



ed into locotio rei, or hiring, by which the hirer gains a temporary use of the thing; locatia opsris faciemi-i, when something is to be done in the thing delivered; looatio opem mcrcium vehendamm, when the thing is merely to be carried from one place to an- other. Jones, Bailui. 36.

Lord Holt divided bajlmeuts thus:

(1) Depositum, or a naked bailment of goods, to be kept for the use of the bailor.

I2) Gommodatum. Where goods or chattels that are usefui are lent to the builee gratis, to be used by him.

(3) Locatio rt-.1’. Where goods are ient to the bnilec to be used by him for hire.

(4) Vadium. Pawn or piedge.

I5) Lozxztia opt-ria aciendi. ‘Vhere goods are deliven-<1 to be carried, or something is to be done about them, for a reward to be paid to the beilee.

(6) Illandatum. A deiivery of goods to some- body who is to carry them, or do something about them, gratis. 2 Dd. Raym. 909

Another division, suggested by Bouv-ier, in as foilows: First, those bailments which are for the benefit of the baiior, or of some person whom he represents; second, those for the hensfit of the bailee, or some person represented by him; third, those which are for the benefit of both parties.

—Ba.i1rnent for hire.
