PROOF, practice. The conviction or persuasion of the mind of a judge or
jury, by the exhibition of evidence, of the reality of a fact alleged: as,
to prove, is to determine or persuade that a thing does or does not exist. 8
Toull. n. 2; Ayl. Parerg. 442; 2 Phil. Ev. 44, n, a. Proof is the perfection
of evidence, for without evidence there is no proof, although, there may be
evidence which does not amount to proof: for example, a man is found
murdered at a spot where another had been seen walking but a short time
before, this fact would be evidence to show that the latter was the
murderer, but, standing alone, would be very far from proof of it.

2. Ayliffe defines judicial proof to be a clear and evident declaration
or demonstration, of a matter which was before doubtful, conveyed in a
judicial manner by fit and proper arguments, and likewise by all other legal
methods; first, by proper arguments, such as conjectures, presumptions,
indicia, and other adminicular ways and means; and, secondly, by legal
method, or methods according to law, such as witnesses, public instruments,
end the like. Parerg. 442 Aso. & Man. Inst. B. 3, t. 7.
