PERSONAL NOTE—I forgot to
shave the other morning, and
when I entered a local drug
store, the saleslady promptly
wanted to sell me a pack of
razor blades. I replied that I
had some blades at home. Which
reminds me of a story they told
on my grandfather. My grand
father drove into town one
morning with one of his cart
wheels squealingly complaining
for lack of axle grease. “Why
don’t you grease that wheel,
young man!" someone Shouted at
him, to which my grandfather
replied tartly, somewhat angered.

Tenant's Cutting of Trees !
May a person who has been I
j given a farm for the duration
'of his life cut the trees thereon.’|
I This depends upon the facts |
land circumstances of the par-]
j ticular case, A tenant, whether]
for life or a specified period of|
time, cannot commit waste. j
Waste has been defined as a
permanent or lasting injury to
the value of the real property. <
The Supreme Court of North]
Carolina has said: “The actsi
which constitute waste havej
] been variously modified until it
has come to be established that]
j a tenant as a general rule may,
do what is required for the ]
proper enjoyment of his estate
to the extent, that his acts and
management are sanctioned by
good husbandry in the locality
where the land is situated, hav
ing regard, also, to its condi-1
tion and do not cause a sub-|
stantial injury to the inherit-1
A tenant is limited to area- 1
sanable use of the land, in the I
light of the purpose for which)
it was conveyed. Where the |
land is suitable for farming, the
“good-husbandry” test means |
that the tenant can cut trees j
whenever necessary to the rca-i
sonable enjoyment of the land I
as agricultural land. * |
A tenant for life or for years!
cannot, of course, cut ornamental

jbe “good-husbandry." It would,
(furthermore, diminish the value
j of the land.
A farm tenant may ordinarily
cut timber for firewood and for
the purpose of repairs on the
A tenant is never allowed to
cut and sell timber merely sot
his own profit.
Our Supreme Court has -said
that “the tenant for life is not
liable for waste in the cutting
and sale of timber if done with
a present view of making needed
repaira, and the proceeds are
honestly expended for that pur-
I pose and no substantial injury *o
Ihe inheritance has been caused.”
It has been said that the clear
ing of land for purposes of farm
ing it may be “good-husbandry”.
■ What remedies are available >fj
j it is proved that the tenant hasj
| committed waste? J
i A statute in North Carolina |
j subjects the tenant to a judg
j ment to pay the actual damages,
or treble damages (three times
the actual damages), at the dis
j cretion of the judge, and also to
] forfeit the place wasted on a
I day to be fixed by the judge, if
jhe should in the meantime fail
to pay the damages recovered
This statute is applicable to
life tenants and those who are
tenants for a specified period of
If the waste is committed by
a life tenant, the proceeding may
be brought by the remainder
man. If tlie waste is committed
by a tenant for a specified pe
riod of time, the proceeding may
be brought bv his landlord.
