The death of his father, also during his early childhood, added new fuel to the flame of his grief. Tills father he hail never known. He was afflicted with pulmonary consumption and had lived abroad during almost the whole period of the boy's life. In Portugal, at Lis? bon, In Madeira, the West Indies, Ja? maica, he had sought for health, but found it not. He returned at intervals to the south coast of England and m< I his wife there, but Thomas, as one of the younger children, had never been taken to meet him. This father was a merchant, who had built up a com? fortable fortune from ht3 trade. He died In his 39th year', leaving a family of six children?two deaths having al? ready occurred, no related. He came home from his wanderlrfgs to die, and Thomas describes in detail their watch for the traveling carriage which was to bring him there. All the long even? ing the children and servant had been waiting for Its approach. From sun? set until midnight they had strained ?their; eyes In the direction from which it would come, and were worn out with the watch. Then: "The first notice of the approach was the sudden emerging of horses' heads from the deep gloom of the shady lane; the next was the mass of white pillows against which the dying patient was re? clining. Tho hearsc-ilke pace at which the carriage moved recalled the over? whelming spectacle of the funeral which had bo lately formed a part of the most memorable event of my life. Hut these elements of awe that might, at any rate, have struck forcibly upon the mind of a child, wen? for me in my condition of morbid nervousness?, raised ihto abiding grandeur by the antecedent experiences of that particular summer night.?' He bad already begun his classical studies, and they saved him from even worse consequences attending his mor? bid condition of mind. At 12 be was placed at a great public, school?the grammar schoi 1 nf Hath- Here he dis? tinguished himself by his Latin verses, mid excited (he enmity of older boys, and he wared fierce war with them for over a year. The fend embittered his life, and he was removud from the ' school on account of a very threatening illness affecting his head. In the spring of lsO't. when l."> years old, ho was sent tu l.t >:?. Prom there he went to Dub? lin with his new-made friend, Lord Westport, for bis vacation, the family, .h-inv it Greenhhy having been given up, ip- disliked the weary round of I tfchool duties inexpressibly, nnd the ndiotiH Boclety of school-boys became, ulna st unbearable to him. He despised the head master as his inferior as a' i:; i rinn, and begged bis guardian to re? move him from the school. This re? quest not b- itig complied with led to the most serious consequences' He ran nway, and after wandering In Wales for two month'-, living on n weekly allow nr.ee given him by his mother, he went up to London and lost himself amid Its upr tarn and perils. He would not com? municate with his family for fear of being forced to return to school, and. being almost penniless when he reached the city, he Buffered the horrors of al? most absolute stravatlon. For four months he wandered about the city, vllvlng upon a few fragments of bn ad given him by a person who did not know of his utter extremity, but sup? posed him to be 111 and noor, lb- very seldom slept under a roof until the cold winter came on. Then_lia?kWpi?.;???a? unoccunled house with a bundle of old law papers for a pillow, a ml had as a companion In Iiis forsajton loneliness a child who had already found this shel? ter. The miserable child suffered tin told agony through her fear of ghosts and hailed his appearance with wild demonstrations of Joy. She regarded him aa her protector, and their sorrows united them in the very closest bonds of affection. During the last two months of his privations he slept but fitfully, and was beset by even more strange and fearful dreams than were afterward evoked by opium. His nights ?were one long horror, and his days be? set with overpowering languor and the keenest gnawing of hunger. During this dreadful period he made friends with an outcast girl named Ann, who showed him some trifling kindness, and whom he hold In grateful memory ever after. This poor child, not yet HI years of age. was an utter outcast nnd almost as near the point of starvation ? as himself.' yet she saved his life, he thinks, by procuring blm a glass of port wine one night when he had collapsed Utterly from long fasting. Many years after he wroto thus of her: 1 "O youthful benefactress! How often in succeeding years, standing in soli? tary places and thinking of thee with grief of heart and perfect love?how often have I wished that as in ancient times the curse of a father was believed to have a supernatural power and to pursue its object witli a fatal necessity of self-fulfillment?even so the benedic? tion of a heart oppressed with gratl tndo might have a like prerogative: might have power given to It from above to chase, to haunt, to waylay, to' overtake, to pursue thee into the cen? tral darkness of a London brothel, or (If It were possible) into tho darkness of the grave, there to awaken thee with .Its authentic messngo of peace and for? giveness, and of final reconciliation." But he was never able to find her, though he searched for years. Kote.?This paper will be concluded to-morrow.

DIGESTED BY W- B. MARTIN. (Exclusively ?or Virginian-Pilot.) EX PARTE YANCEY. Supremo Court of North Carolina. March M, 189?. IF A WIIJ/ GIVK LAND TO TESTA? TORS DAUGHTER FOR LIFE AND THEN TO 111::it CHILDREN, THE COURT MAY. ON HER APPLICA? TION AND THAT OF THE LIVING CHILDREN, SELL TIIK LAND. IN SUCH CASE , AFTER BONN CHILDREN AHE CONCLUDED BY SUCH SALE. The facts BUfllclenty appear from the opinion of tho court. The court says: N. S. Harp devised as follows: "All the residue of my estate, real and per? sonal and mixed, 1 give and bequeath to my wife. Lucy H. Harp, during her natural life, and then in remainder to my daughter, Elodln Rent?n Yunccy, wife of Thomas It. Yanccy. during her natural life, and then to her children." Elodia and her children, some of whom arc minors represented by their next friend, ash the courl :<> order a sale of the land, nod that the proceeds he in? vested, under the direction of the court, for their benefit. The pur-ehuscr of one lot declines to pay his bid, and raises the question U'hcth r the court has the power to order the sale, and that is the only question. We arc not considering whether Klortla acquirt d an estate in ffe. of for lif" only. She and her child? ren arc asking ror a sale. The only sug? gested difficulty is that by possibility Fhe may have other children, wiiose Interest rnnnot new he sold. We think that appellant's contention is untenable. When the Mfe tenant, still living, has no child, it has been held that the court has no power to order a sale of land, where it is limited in remainder to per? sons not In esse, because there can be no one before the court to rc:->rosent their interest So, also, if the devise was in remainder to such children as Should be living at the death of the life tenant, the court could not sell; for, until that event. It could not be known who would take. Hut, when all the re? mainder-men living are before the court, they represent a class, and when the gift Is general, nnd there Is no cle? ment of survivorship in It. it is other? wise, and by representation those who may afterwards be born are concluded by the action of the court upon those of the same class then before it. and the purchaser at such sale will acquire n pood title against after-born children of tho same life tenant. Tn Williams V. Hasscll, the court said: "Suppose, in the case before us, the devise had been to the first takers for life, remainder to their children. That would take in all the children,?as well those horn after the death of the testator as those born before; and in stich ense it may be that the born child might be allowed to rep- ' resent the class." That supposed care is .iust what we now have before us. The investment will lie made as the court may direct, and the cause is re? tained for further direction. It Is to the Interest of our people- that the title to property should lie olog^"iI as little as possible with "limitations," "trusts," etc., and public policy renulres that the alienation of land should he as free from such condition as any article of traffic. Affirmed. MURFF V. OSB?RN. ? Supreme Court of Mississippi. January 23, 189!). WHEN. UNDER THE LAW.A PARTY HAS THE RIG HT Ti i APPEAL PROM THE JUDGMENT OP A .1CS TICK OF THE PEACE WITHIN FIVE KAYS AFTER IT IS REN? DERED, THE FACT THAT THE JUSTICE LEFT THE STATE THE DAY A PTE II GIVING JUDGMENT ?ND DID NoT RETURN UNTIL AFTER FIVE DAYS, WILL NOT EXCUSE THE PARTY DESIRING TO APPEAL. This was an appeal from tile judg? ment of the lower court. Which dismiss? ed defendant's appeal from the judg? ment of a justice of the peace against him. The appeal was dismissed because tile appeal bond was no! hied with the justice within the live days allowed by law. The- judgmi nt was rendered late ?Saturday evening and the defendant demanded an appeal. Ho afterwards -..cut with a good bond, but the office of the justice was locked. He also of? fered to leave the bond with th? wife of the justice, wlip would not receive it. The justice left the State the next day after the judgment was rendered and did not return until after the lapse of live days. The appeal bond was tiled six days after the rendition of the Judgment. The Court says: From the judgment obtained by the nppr-llee Osburn, in the court of the justice of tho peace, there was no ap? peal taken by the appellant. Murff,with? in live days after the rendition of said Judgment, and tho Circuit Court was without Jurisdiction. It was said by this court in Kramer v. Holster, 53 Miss., 243, that "the prescribed time is a limitation of the jurisdiction of the Cir? cuit Court, and is not a mere statute of limitations to be pleaded by the op? posite party. To sustain the conten? tion of counsel for appellant, and main? tain the Jurisdiction of the Circuit Court in this case, we shall be compell? ed to ingraft an exception on the sta? tute, and this we are not authorized to do." While It is true that during tha greater part of the entire five days fol? lowing the rendition of the judgment the Justice of the peace was absent, and, therefore, that the appellant could not file his appeal bond, and have it approved, yet it Is also true that the bond might have been filed and ap? proved on the day of the rendition of the judgment, as the justice of the peace did not absent himself until the next day. Ths case presents a bard Bhlp, perhaps, but we cannot relieve against It without engrafting- on the statute an exception which the legisla? ture has not seen proper to make. Af? firmed. sir.
