A farmer should make return of all his pro* dace sold withinthe j ear, out a mere executory contract for a sale is not a sale ; delivery, cither actual or constructive. Is essential. The criterion by which to judge whether a sale is complete or sot is to determine whether tbe vendor still re tains in that character a right over the property If the property were lost ordestroyett, upon which of the parties.
