1. By a statute of New Hampshire it was provided as follows: "If any person shall in the night-time break or enter, or in the day-time break and enter, any dwelling-house or out-house adjoining thereto, or any office, bank, shop, store, warehouse, barn, granary, or mill, and therein commit larceny, he shall be punished by confinement," etc. It was held that a building 21 feet by 15 feet placed on a market garden, and used for storing the tools and agricultural implements used there, such seeds as were sown there, and manures employed in the garden, was not a granary within the statute. Said the court: "To make a building a granary it must be devoted to the storage of grain; the principal and main use of it must be the storage of corn and grain. No corn or grain was stored in the building except such as was intended for sowing in the garden. It was a small, slight building set on the garden for the convenience of keeping in it such miscellaneous things as were used in carrying on the garden, tools, seeds, manures, etc. Keeping in it, among other things, small quantities of seed grain to be used on the garden would not make it a granary, as a distinct thing from shops, stores, warehouses, barns, etc., named in the statute,

any more than a few bundles of hay kept in it for the horses worked there, would make it a barn." State v. Wilson, 47 N. H. 101.

2. Great Grandchildren are not Grandchildren.-Oxford v. Churchill, 3 Ves. & B. 59; 2 Williams on Exrs., p. 1103: Hone v. VanSchaick, 3 Barb. Ch. (Ñ. Y.) 505; s. c., 3 N. Y. 538; Heyward v. Hasell, 2 S. C. 509. But see dictum by Northington, Lord Ch., in Hussey v. Berkeley, 2 Eden 194; s. c., Ambler 603. But, of course, when the term grandchildren is used in a will as descriptive of the beneficiaries, and it is evident that it was the intention of the testator to include under it great-grandchildren, such intention will be carried out by the courts. Hussey v. Berkeley, 2 Eden 194; s. c., Ambler 603; Pemberton v. Parke, 5 Binn. (Pa.) 601.

Children of a Step-Child are not Grandchildren.-Cutter v. Doughty, 7 Hill (N. Y.) 305, reversing the judgment of the supreme court in 23 Wend. (N. Y.) 513- Same will construed as to another point in 8 Paige Ch. (N.Y.) 375.

The Widow of a Grandchild is not a Grandchild.-Hussey v. Dillon, Ambler 603; s. c., 2 Eden 194.

The Illegitimate Child of a Daughter is not a Grandchild.-Ferguson v. Mason, 2 Sneed (Tenn.) 618.
