Co., 163 S. W. R., 381. Held, under Article 2073, that a statement of

81. The clerk shall at each term make out two copies of this
docket, one for the use of the court, and one for the use of the bar.

to designate the suits by regular consecutive numbers, called file
rrmnbers, and he shall mark on each paper in every case the file number
of the cause.
83. In every case appealed to a Court of Civil Appeals, the clerk
shall, in making up the docket at each succeeding term, keep the said

decided; and, at the next term after issuing a writ of error, the clerk
shall replace the cause on the docket, with its original file number.
84. In making a complete record, as prescribed, by statute, all the
proceedings in the case shall be entered in the order of time in which

the order of time in which they occurred, as prescribed in the preceding

shall agree in writing, to be itself filed and copied in the transcript,
directing the clerk which of the papers may be left out, as being
useless in the decision of the case; provided, subpoenas shall not
be inserted, nor shall the citations in cases where the defndant or
defendants have filed answers, unless some question is made upon
them which will require them to be copied.
86. All bills of exceptions and statements of facts shall be literally
transcribed; and the clerks are hereby prohibited from copying as
parts of the same any instrument in writing, or document not originally
inserted therein, but merely referred to and directed to be
copied from some other paper in the case.
