This is the first of a spring
series of articles that will ap
pear each week throughout
the next three months. They
have been written for the
non-lawyer as a public ser
vice of the North Carolina
A tenant leases a farm for a
number of years. He own s a
herd of cattle which he maintains
on the farm. The cows are fed
entirely upon grass, corn, hay and
other roughage produced on the
farm. Does the tenant have the
legal right to sell to others the
No. In the absence of an ex
press contract, to the contrary,
the manure cannot be sold or car
ried away by the tenant with
out the consent of the landlord.
Manure made by animals upon
a farm by their consumption of
products produced upon the farm
becomes a part of the real prop
erty. The tenant is guilty of
waste if he sells such manure so
produced on the farm.
The tenant must use the ma
nure on the farm to maintain the
fertility of the soil, and must
leave whatever of it which has
accumulated when he moves at
the end of his lease, so that it
may be used for the same pur
pose by his successor.
A cow is personal property. So
is harvested hay produced on the
farm. But if the cow eats the
hay, the law says that the ma
nure produced therefrom becomes
real property. It becomes a part
of the farm and passes with the
farm when it is transferred to an
May the owner of the farm
orally contract to sell the ma
nure to another?
Yes. For this particular pur
pose the law treats the manure
as personal property.
Suppose the manure is pro-
duced from feed or roughage not
raised on the leased farm Does
the tenant have th :■ legal light
to sell to others ihe cow manure?
Yes. There is no rule of gcod
husbandry which requires a ten
ant to buy hay or other fodder
for consumption on the farm.
If the tenant feeds the cattle
upon grain or fodder procured by
purchase or raised by him on oth
er lands not owned by his land
lord, the landlord has no more
legal right in the manure so pro
duced than he does in the grain
or fodder before it is consumed.
It is not made in the ordinary
course of husbandry. It is pro
duced in a manner substantially
like the production of manure in
a livery stable. Such manure is

In Norma’s generation young
people didn’t go steady on short
acquaintance. The more the
merrier, said the girls.
Especially Norma. *
She was a Cashing, dark-eyed
beauty from the West. She had
just come from her home in Colo
rado to visit a cousin of her age,
Margaret, who lived in the South
—and she had come for conquest.
This became evident an hour
after she arrived. She and Mar
garet were unpacking her nu
merous bags and hat-boxes while
the southern girl gave her an ac
count of the numerous aunts and
uncles and cousins she would
soon be meeting. Suddenly the
“Margaret,” she exclaimed, “all
these relatives are fine—but. I
want to hear about some eligible
young men. Am Ito meet any?”
.“Certainly—plenty of them,”
and Margaret began naming one
after another, with brief descrip
tions of each. Finally she came
to Ike Van Beter. “Now there,”
she said, “is a real catch—if you
can catch him.”
“Just give me a chance,” re
sponded Norma, tossing her head,
full of confidence in her good
looks and charm.
Soon she had her chance and
proved her prediction. She and
Margaret went to many 'parties,
and the dates with young men
became more and more numerous.
Ike was a suitor almost from the
start, and Norma, after fluttering
about among his rivals for a time
like a gorgeous butterfuly, let him
put an engagement ring, with an
enormous diamond, on her finger.
She drove with him over his
thousand acres of rich pasture
land and made many suggestions
about the house they would build.
Margaret meanwhile, herself a
lovely blonde, was being courted
by a suitor as ardent aS Ike—a
minister with Irish blood in bis
were bold, and barons held their
sway”—and pledged undying de
votion to girls with blue eyes and
Norma returned home and
there, after a time, a wedding
took place, and at the same sea
son one in the South.
A year later there were great
expectations in two households.
Margaret’s baby came first, and
as she pressed darling boy to her
heart her happiness was the
greater as she thought of the hap
piness that was coming to Norma.
Each day she inquired eagerly
about her; had her baby come
and how were mother and child? 1
The answers were vague and in- J
definite. Finally in exasperation
she demanded information. Then
they told her.
Her beloved cousin from the
West had gone west.
Norma had given birth to twin
boys, but her own life had been
forfeited. One of the twins had
died also and been buried with
Margaret burst into tears and
for days was inconsolable. She
thought of the glorious times she
and her dearest friend had plan
ned as the second chapter of their
lives together—and now this! The
darkness of a late, cold February
oppressed her soul.
But then, as spring came.on, a
healing thought came into her
She remembered a conversation
she had had one day in which
she had mentioned to Norma a vi
tal subject—Jesus Christ. The
girl from the West had been
brought up in a region where lit
tle thought was given to religion.
But that day, in a quiet interlude,
Margaret had said by her loving
spirit, “Oh that my Saviour were
vour Saviour, too!” And Norma
had turned to Jesus. Soon after
wards she confessed her faith and
joined a church in the comimmi

Suppose the tenant feeds his
cattle partly from feed produced
on the farm and partly from feed
purchased by the tenant. To
whom does the manure belong?
That portion „of the manure
which is the product of feed rais
ed on the farm belongs to the
landlord, and that portion of the
manure which is the product of
feed purchased by the tenant be
longs to the tenant.
If the landlord and tenant dis
agree as to the percentages, their
dispute may be solved by a court
proceeding. Based upon the evi
dence, the jurors will render a
decision of fact.
with all nature bursting into frag
rance and beauty, it brought
, blessed message to a young mo
ther that life, not death, is victor;
and that those who have loved
one another here in .the greater,
perfect love of Jesus, shall yonder
find all their love fulfilled.
