April 17, 1899.
AN ORAL AGREEMENT TO CON
VEY CERTAIN LAND TO THE
WIPE, WHO ENTERED INTO
THE MARRIAGE IN RELIANCE
THEREON. IS NOT AFFECTED BY
THE STATUTE OF FRAUDS.
A DEED BY "WALTIMORE ARENS"
UNDER A POWER OF ATTORNEY
TO "WALDEMAR ARENS" IS NOT
PRIMA FACIE AN EXECUTION OF
The points decided appear from the
opinion of the court.
The court says:
Agreements of the kind under con?
sideration are included in those which,
by the statute of frauds, must be In
writing, and signed by the party to
be charged therewith, otherwise they
are declared void; but equity will not
permit this statute to be made an in?
strument for the perpetration of that
which It waa designed to prevent. Ac?
cording to the averments of her crosa
complaint, plaintiff in error would not
have entered Into the marriage con
tract except for the promises on the
part of the one with whom she so con
traded to her these premises. He has
failed to carry out his agreement, but
by this promise, upon which she relied,
she has been Induced to enter Into a
relation from which she cannot recede,
and which she is powerless to change.
The result of this deception and artifice
is such a fraud upon plaintiff in error,
and has placed her in such a situation,
that the promise to convey is taken out
of the statute, or, perhaps, more ac?
curately spea.klng. equity will not per?
mit It to shield such a fraud. This con
elusion, however, only affects the Im?
mediate parties to the contract. The
only ground upon which plaintiff re?
lied to establish her right to the prem
Lees was that she held the fee title, and
unless the deed purporting to be ex
ecuted by the grantors therein named,
per Waldemar Arens, their attorney In
fact, was properly admitted, she has
failed In this respect. There was no
attempt to show that Waltlmore and
Waldemar Arens were, in fact, one and
the same, and the deed must have been
admitted solely on the ground that I
was prlmn facie the act of the grantors
by virtue of the power of.attorney. In
the matter of names, orthography is not
Important, If the sound Is the same,
and Is sufficient in law to spell a nanv
as it is regularly or commonly pro
nounccd. Hut here the difference In th
two names is so marked that the at
tentive car would find no difficulty
distinguishing between them, and th
difference In spelling la such that he
ccsnarlly the pronunciation Is cquall
distinct; the proper rule to observe I
applying the doctrine of Idem sonans
being "that If two names, according to
the ordinary rules of pronouncing tin
English language, may be sounded
alike, without doing violence to the let?
ters found in the variant orthography,
then the variance is, prlma facie, at
least, Immaterial, and may be so de?
cided by the court."
Applying this rule It Is at once ap?
parent from an inspection of the or?
thography of the two names that. In
the absence of information other than
thus obtained, the variance Is fatal.

A Choice ot Nclioola.
Dear Sir,?There is a question that
has been for some time past discussed
in our home, and it is very likely it
may be discussed in many homes just
at this time.
Perhaps the writer's experience would
help other people who, like ourselves,
were left in doubt as to the course to
be pursued. This morning wc de?
termined to decide the question as to
whether our little girl should attend
the private school or go to the public
school. Her mother was In favor of the
public school, but the writer hardly
knew which would be best, education
seeming to hlin to hf wry impnruiu
and a matter that should not be de?
cided without careful deliberation. With
that end In view I started out to con.
suit a. list of gentlemen, whose opin?
ions I desired to learn before deciding.
The first was a typical Southern gen?
tleman, one of those conservative class
who would naturally look upon mat?
ters in many ways and from a different
standpoint than the writer. Had he
opposed the idea of sending the little
girl to the public school I should not
have been at all surprised, but was a
little surprised to learn that he was
going to send two children to the pub?
lic school, although he had not done so
The next with whom I happened to
speak was heartily in favor of the pub?
I next visited a gentleman whose
opinions I value very highly, especially
In educational matters, whose children
have heretofore attended the private
school. I found that he was also send?
ing his children to a public school.
I next visited a prominent gentleman,
who camo originally from the North.
While his children had been educated
In a private school, yet his Idea .was
that, under the existing circumstances.
If he had young children he would send
them fo the public school, although he
admitted that his wife would probably
favor the private school.
I next visited a gentleman, who said
that "he had no children of school age.
but his little girl would go to school
next year, and he had been carefully
investigating the schools of Norfolk,
and had almost decided to send his
child to them when she Is old enough.'"
I next called upon a professional gen?
tleman, one of whose daughters grad?
uated from one of those excellent pri?
vate schools of which the city boasts
quite a number. He said he should
keep his other daughter at the private
school, as she was nearly ready to
graduate, but that If he had any young
children they would go to tho public
After visiting all these gentlemen I
had a conference with Mr. Doble, with
the result that I am still farther fa?
vorably impressed with the .public
school system of Norfolk, and I am
writing: this little article with the hope
that it may help other parents to de?
cide the question, ono of very great
Importance In their children's lives.:
The writer was brought up in the
North, and received a good part of his
education in tho New Haven (Conn.)
public schools.- His class-mates"*In?
cluded -the sons of some of the first
families of tho city. One young man^
that I remember -well, -was tho son of
a gentleman who had fifteen hundred
employes, and who was afterwards
Governor of the State. There were
boys also in the class whoso parents
were too poor to give them respectable
clothes, and yet all met on terms of
practicable equality, it was not the
boy's clothes, but what he knew or
could learn that counted In that school.
Nearly all of tho boys of that class
have made their mark In the world.
The-writer being in New Haven, Conn.,
a year ago last summer, had an oc?
casion to consult an eye specialist. I
found the doctor in an elegant resi?
dence, in a fine portion of the city; and,
what was my surprise when he came
in, to find that he was an old class?
mate, and the poor, almost ragged, boy
had become a physician of such repute
that, while but a little over thirty
years old. he enjoyed an income of
neurly $10,000 a year.
The writer Is irejolced to see such an
Interest in the public schools, and feels
that no one need hesitate to send their
children to them.

KID Wl'COY VICTORIOUS.
HE WHIPS O'DONNELL IN SIX
(By Telegraph to NMrjflnlan-Pilot.)
Key York. Sept. 19.?Kid McCoy had
very little difficulty In getting away
with Steve O'Donnell in six re'unds in
the arena, of tho Broadway Athletic
Club to-night. Despite O'Donnell's ad?
vantages of height, reach and weight
McCoy went at him gradually, with?
out taking anyt careless liberties, and
soon had his big adversary in trouble.
O'Donnell never landed a good blo*w
on McCoy, while the Kid was gaining
ground in each succeeding round- His
left was always getting to tho face,
head or wind and O'Donnell was
puzzled. He staggered frequently, nnd
In the sixth round went down from a
left swing. He remained down as long
ns the rules allowed, but It was all up
with the- big fellow. McCoy went nfter
him with swinging lefts arid rights and
soon floored him with another hard left
swing, from the effects of which he
was unable to recover until counted
out. Steve had to be assisted to his
feet by the referee, while McCoy walked
to his corner smiling and without a
The. betting opened at 3 to 1 on Mc?
Coy, but these odds were Increased to
10 to 1, with very few takers
After the men had returned to their
dressing rooms McCoy said:
"I will pest $1,000 to-morrow to meet
Bob Fltzsimmons for the middle-weight
championship of the world nt 158
pounds My money will remain up for
thirty days, nnd should Fltzslmmons
ignore my dell I will claim thlB title
and withdraw my money, after which
I will challenge Fltzslmmons at catch
weights. This ought to make him come
to time if he Intends fighting any one.
If he fails to defend the middle-weight
championship, and I claim It, I will
defend It against all comers, negroes
barred, at 158 pounds."
