Latin: At the day, as a plea of payment ad diem, on the day when the money became due. Ad certum diem, at a certain day. 2 Strange, 747. Solvit ad diem; he paid at or on the day. 1 Chit PI. 485. Ad ea qnse frequenting accidnnt jnra adaptantnr. Laws are adapted to those cases which most frequently occur. 2 Inst. 137; Broom, Max. 43. Laws are adapted to cases which frequently occur. A statute, which, construed according to its plain words, is, in all cases of ordinary occurrence, in no degree inconsistent or unreasonable, should not be varied by construction in every case, merely because there is one possible but highly improbable case in which the law would operate with great severity and against our notions of justice. The utmost that can be contended is that the construction of the statute should be varied in that particular case, so as to obviate the injustice. 7 Exch. 549; 8 Exch. 778.
