  MAXIM. An established principle or proposition. A principle of law 
  universally admitted, as being just and consonant With reason. 
       2. Maxims in law are somewhat like axioms in geometry. 1 Bl. Com. 68. 
  They are principles and authorities, and part of the general customs or 
  common law of the land; and are of the same strength as acts of parliament, 
  when the judges have determined what is a maxim; which belongs to the judges 
  and not the jury. Terms do Ley; Doct. & Stud. Dial. 1, c. 8. Maxims of the 
  law are holden for law, and all other cases that may be applied to them 
  shall be taken for granted. 1 Inst. 11. 67; 4 Rep. See 1 Com. c. 68; Plowd. 
  27, b. 
       3. The application of the maxim to the case before the court, is 
  generally the only difficulty. The true method of making the application is 
  to ascertain bow the maxim arose, and to consider whether the case to which 
  it is applied is of the same character, or whether it is an exception to an 
  apparently general rule. 
       4. The alterations of any of the maxims of the common law are 
  dangerous. 2 Inst. 210. The following are some of the more important maxims.

     common observance or usage. Co. Litt. 186.

     ambiguum verificatione facti tollitur. A hidden ambiguity of the words is
