IN ORDER TO CONVERT LAND IN?
TO MONEY BY WILL, THE DI?
RECTION TO SELL IT MUST BE
ABSOLUTE AND UNCONDITION?
AL. IP THE REQUEST OR CON?
SENT OP PARTIES IS REQUIRED,
THERE IS NO CONVERSION UN?
LESS SUCH REQUEST OR CON?
ONE JOINT DEVISEE OR LEGATEE
HAS NO CLAIMS ON THE SHARE
?F THE OTHERS IN THE LAND
FOR HER SHARE OP THE PER?
SONAL ESTATE WHICH HAS NOT
BEEN PAID HER BY THE EX?
ECUTOR. HER REMEDY IS j
AGAINST THE EXECUTOR AND
THE OWNER OP AN UNDIVIDED
INTEREST IN LAND IS NOT AF?
FECTED BY A SALE OF THE
OTHER INTERESTS BY A TRUS?
TEE, BUT MAY HAVE PARTI?
The points decided appear from the
opinion of the court.
The court says:
In the case- before us, there was no
conversion of the land Into money by
the terms of the will. To convert land
Into money, the direction to sell must
be absolute and unconditional. The
will or other Instrument must contain
an imperative direction to sell the real
estate in order to convert It Into money.
If the power to 6ell requires for He ex?
ecution the request or consent of the
parties Interested, there Is no conver?
sion unless such request Is made or con?
sent given. It therefore follows that
the real estate of the testator In the
case at bar retained Its original char?
acter and passed at his death to hie
devisees as land. The personal estate,
which passed Into the hands of the ex?
ecutor, was ample to equalize the ap?
pellant and the other residuary lega?
tees. She and they were entitled to be
paid their respective shares by the ex?
ecutor, and they were entitled to equal
shares of the land without reference
to the division of the personal estate.
If the executor misappropriated or
wasted the personal estate, and the ap?
pellant has been deprived of her share
thereof, she has her remedy against
him and his sureties for a devastavlt.
There is no principle of law or equity
which requires that any part of the
shares of the other devisees of the
lands be surrendered by them or their
grantee to make good her share of the
personal estate. The court did not ert
in dismissing the original bill of the
complainant. Nor did the court err in
refusing leave to file the nmended bill
for partition of the tract of land. Waiv?
ing any possible objection that might
be to it as a departure In substance
from the original bill, or to the charge
of multlfariousnesa. It wns not compe?
tent for the complainants to require a
stoppagc of the sale under the deed of
trust of the interests of the other devi?
sees In the lnnd until her share had
been laid off, on the ground that other?
wise her Interests might be sacrificed
by the sale. She was not. legally In- j
terested in the sale of their interests,
and her interest in the land could be
Jn no wise affected by the sale. She
could have partition of the lnnd as well
after ai? before the sale, and it is not
perceived how she could be prejudiced
by the sale. Practically the amended
bill was In the Interest of the grantor*
In the deed of trust and not for the ben?
efit of the appellant. The court right?
ly refused leave to the complainants to
file the amended bill, and lett the te

A RAILROAD COMPANY RUNNING
A "MIXED TRAIN" WHICH
STARTS WITH A JERK, MUST AL?
LOW TIME FOR PASSENGERS TO
BE SEATED BEFORE THE TRAIN
THE COMPANY IS LIABLE FOR AN
INJURY TO A PASSENGER ON
SUCH TRAIN OCCURRING
THROUGH ITS STARTING WITH A
JERK AND THROWING A PER?
SON WHO WAS ASSISTING TO
PASSENGER ON THE TRAIN
AGAINST SUCH PASSENGER.
This was an action for injuries to a
passenger who was on a "mixed train"
of the company; these injuries being
caused by the train's starting, after she
had boarded the same, and before she

had an opportunity -to bo seated, with
sudden and violent jerks and jolts,
which threw her against tho 6eat of the
car, causing permanent Injury to her
person. It appears from the record that
Mrs. Moore had reached the depot in
Danville, Twiggs county, for the pur?
pose of taking passage over defendant's
road to Macon, Ga. She was accompa?
nied by two gentlemen, at the home of
one of whom she had been visiting. She
had in her charge, traveling with her,
a little gin. She also had hand bag?
gage and parcels to carry with her on
the train. The only accommodation fur?
nished by the railroad company for its
passengers over this road was what is
known as a "mixed" train. The particu?
lar train furnished for this purpose con?
sisted of one passenger coach and a
number of freight cars. This passenger
coach had a pai'tltion in it, one end of
the coach being set apart for tho ac?
commodation of lady passengers. When
the train reached Danville It was some?
what behind time, and 'there was some
evidence of the conductor's being im?
patient to leave. His attention was call?
ed by one of the men assisting the lady
to the parcels and baggage that had to
be gotten on the train, and thero was
testimony as to his making- some im?
patient remark about being behind
rime. The front end of the passenger
coach, where the conductor was stand?
ing, stopped at a point convenient for
this lady passenger to board the car at
that end. As soon as the train stopped
she entered the car, assisting the little
girl ahead of her. One of the gentlemen
followed with a valise, and the other
succeeded In placing the parcels or va
lisa he Had charge of on the car, but
did not undertake to follow the lady,
?wing to the fact that the car had com?
menced t? move off before he could
even escape from the platform. The
portion ef the coach for ladies was 'the
rear half of it, and before Mrs. Moore
reached tho partition door the train
started off with sudden jerks and jolts,
which seem to have thrown her against
the partition door, and at the same
time to have thrown the man Imme?
diately In her rear against her, and thus
she was knocked down upon tile back
or arm of a seat. This fall, It is claim?
ed, resulted in the permanent and se?
rious injuries set forth in her peti?
There was a. verdict and judgment for
the plaintiff for 51,000, and defendant
Tho Court says:
We do not mean to say that a railroad
company, if It sees proper, may not use
what Is known as a "mixed train" for
the purpose of transporting people as
well as freight, provided it can be done
with reasonable safety to life and limb.
But It matters not what the means
employed may be, the law always en?
joins upon such carriers the duty of
extraordinary diligence in protecting
passengers, and It would seem that, the
more dangerous the menus employed,
the more vigilant and diligent the car?
rier should be in guarding against In?
jury to passengers. If the construction
of the train on which this defendant in
error claims to have been injured was
of such a nature as seems to have been
contended in this case?that certain
Jerks of the train were unavoidable in
starting from a. station, and these were
attended with more or less danger to
people on the car who were unseated,
then, manifestly, extraordinary dili?
gence required those In charge of the
train to stop at stations a sufficient
length of time to enable those desiring
to take passage on tho train to be seat?
ed. If stich time has been given, and
there has been no unnecessary jolting
of tho train, or It extraordinary dili?
gence has been used to prevent its vio?
lent jerking on starting off, tho com?
pany has complied with the obligations
imposed upon it by law in this parti?
cular. One the other hand, it is the duty
of the passenger, in boarding such a
means of conveyance, to exercise ordi?
nary care and diligence in promptly
placing himself in a seat, and, if he
should be Injured on account of un?
necessary delay in so acting, without
any fault on the part of the company,
thero can, of course, be no recovery for
such Injury. The controlling Issue of
fact In this ense, so far as concerns the
liability of the company, for whatever
Injury the plaintiff sustained, is
whether or not the company's agents la
eharre of the train gave her a fair and
reasonable opportunity tu \m si'jieii lii1
fore starting from the station where
she boarded the car. A passenger who
enters such a mixed train, with knowl?
edge of Its peculiar structure and
movements, assumes the risks conse?
quent upon its unavoidable jerks when
starting; and the degree of diligence he;
should exercise sheuld have reference to
such necessary movements of the train.
But he hao also the right to rely on an
exercise ef extraordinary diligence byj
the railroad company In its manage-1
ment of the train in suoh a way as to
nToirt danger of injury to its passen?
gers: and when he has used ordinary
diligence for his own safety, under the
circumstances, the company is liable
for damages to him resulting even from
its slight neglect. Affirmed.

IN BETTER HEALTH THAN FOR
FOR TWO YEARS PAST.
To the Editor of the Richmond Times:
Sir?My health Is not a matter of such
importance to your readers as to call
for any line from me on that subject,
and were it not for a paragraph in
your issue of to-day, I would not trou?
ble you. Under the heading, "The
Methodist Conference," this statement
occurs: "Rev. Dr. A. Coke Smith, pas?
tor of Court Street Church, Lynchburg,
will be unable to continue his work on
account of ill health."
Having once been in newspaper work
myself, I understand how misleading
statements get into print despite the
vigilance of the editors.
They (the editors) are obliged fre
quetnly to accept as reliable, statements
made by those who are supposed to
know of what they speak. As this arti?
cle was evidently written by a Metho?
dist it was natural that you should take
him to be sure of his facts before mak?
ing a statement so positive and giving
It such publicity.
The information contained In this
paragraph .was news to me. I have
been, auita unwell for come time past,
and through the kindness of my peo?
ple, have been relieved of work for
four months. Many a preacher has
continued his work as badly off as I
have been, and, doubtless, I would have
done so had I not been serving such a
church as Court Street.
They Would hear to nothing but rest
on my part, that -I might be entirely
well. My rest and skilful medical treat?
ment have restored me almost entirely,
and I expect to begin the next confer?
ence year in better physical: condition
than for two years past.

Everyone knows of the fatal results
which follow the stoppage of the drains
in a house.
Queen Victoria's husband, the Prince
Corsort, died from poisonous germs,
which were generated in the palace by
the stoppage of the drains.
The kidneys, among their many other
functions, act as drains to tjie body.
Through them the blood passes to be
purified, leaving behind a mass of effete
matter, which it is their duty to eject
from the system.
"When, however, the kidneys become
congested and all clogged up, this re?

an active poison, and, In course of
time, infects the whole man, and event?
