the prosecution of a suit, his omission to do so in the first instance
is fiatal to his availing himself of it as an objection on appeal.

Where a woman is in possession of her husband's estate as
security for unpaid dower, the proper decree, in a suit against her
for possession by the heir, is a decree for possession, subject to the
amount due, with a direction for an account as to mesne profits
received by her.

A Mahomedan died, leaving, among others, a widow and a sister
entitled to shares in his estate. The widow got possession of the
whole. The sister died; and after her death, her husband, on
behalf of himself and grandson, sued the widow to obtain the shares
to which the deceased's sister was entitled, and obtained a decree
for payment of the same after satisfaction of the widow's lien for
dower, in certain proportions to himself and grandson. The hus-
band's interest in the decree was subsequently confiscated by
Government for having taking part with the enemy in the mutiny:
He subsequently died, leaving his grandson. The widow died
during the inutiny, and her brother was put into possession of the
property, by the Government as her heir. The grandson now sued
ihe widow's brother to recover his own and his grandfather's share,
alleging that the lien for dower had been satisfied. Held, the suit
was not burred by Act VIII of 1859, section 2.

PRACTICE- Erecution of Decree made on Appeal— Mesne Profits.]

When the Privy Council declares an appellant entitled to real pro-
perty of which he was out of possession, and directs the High Court
to make the inquiry necessary to ascertain what is comprised there-
ins, and to proceed in the suit as upon the result of such inquiry
may appear to be just, the High Court, on being applied to for
execution, ought, besides giving possession, to ascertain and award
the mesne profits up to the date of giving possession.

An appeal will lie as of right from the order of a single Judge
of the High Court as to execution of a decree of the Privy Council
where the property is over rupees 10,000.

REDEMPTION, EQUITY OF- Purchase by Mortgagee- Mort-

gagor and Mortgagee— Trustee.] K. D., a Hindu widow, by deed,
appointed R. S. to be her general mooktear, for the conduct of
certain suits in her name, which were pending in respect of the
estate of her deceased husband. By this deed, dated Septem-
ber 25th, 1858, she covenanted to repay him, within two months
of the successful termination of the suit, “all moneys properly
disbursed by him on her account, &c," and also to pay him an
additional sum as remuneration to himself. R. S. entered on the
conduct of her business, and advanced certain moneys on her
account; and in October 1859, K. D. executed in his favor a second
deed, by which she mortgaged to him her share in the estate of
R. H., deceased, which was in the hands of his executors, “ and my
“ decrees, 24 and 25, in the Zilla Court, and the decree in the
" Supreme Court, and the right and interest of all the said decrees
" and all other real and personal properties belonging to the said
“estate.” By a decree of the High Court of 28th July 1862, in
one of the suits brought by K. D., the estate of R. H. was declar-
ed to consist of a share of a certain talook, of a share of a house
in Calcutta, and of a certain sum of money; and K. D. was
declared to be entitled to one moiety thereof. K. D. afterwards
obtained an order for possession, and held possession of the said
talook until August 1866. R. S. continued the conduct of K. D.'s
business, and advanced more money on her account, in respect of
which, on May 31st, 1865, he brought a suit against her; and on
September 21st, 1865, obtained a decree in his favor. Under this
deeree he attached the right, title, and interest of K. D. in the
estate of R. 11.; and on 25th June 1866, it was put up for sale,
and purchased by R. S. hiinself. In a suit brought by K. D.
against R. S., among other things for an account, held, that R. S.
was a trustee for K. D., in respect of her share in the estate of R.
H., which he had purchased in execution of his decree.

A mortgagee cannot, properly, in execution of a simple decree for money, the repayment of which is secured by mortgage, attach and sell the mortyagor's equity of redemption in the property mortgaged; but if he do so, and purchase it himself, he becomes a trustee for the mortgagor, against whom he cannot acquire an irredeemable title.

NARSING PORKAET v. MusSAMAT BEWAH

App.
REGULATION-1806-XVII, s. 7-Mortgage-Foreclosure of Equity

of Redemption--"Stipulated Period."] By a mortgage in the
English form, the defendants conveyed certain property to the
plaintiff

, subject to the proviso that, in the event of the defendants
paying to the plaintiff the principal sum on the 4th September
1868, and in the meantime paying interest on that sum half-yearly,
with annual rests, in case of default of such payment, then the
plaintiff should re-convey the property. The defendants failed to
pay interest; and on the 4th December 1866, the plaintiff applied
to the Judge of Chittagong for foreclosure; thereupon notice under
section 8 of Regulation XVII of 1806 was issued, and served on
the defendants. On the 15th April 1868, this suit was instituted
by the plaintiff for the establishment and confirmation of absolute
purchase, and to obtain possession of the mortgaged premises.

Held, that the suit was not maintainable. Regulation XVII of
1806 applied to this mortgage; and, under that Regulation, the
mortgagee could not apply for foreclosure, until the time agreed
upon for re-payment by the mortgagor,--that is, the “ stipulated

RELIEF-Prayer for General Relief.] Under a prayer for general

relief, a plaintiff is not entitled to any relief which is inconsistent
with his plaint; therefore, where a plaintiff brought a suit to set
aside his father's will, on the ground that he had no power to dis-
pose of his property, but that the plaintiff was entitled as eldest
son and heir-at-law according to Hindu law, the suit should have
been dismissed with costs, and no account should have been decreed
to the plaintiff in respect of bis interest in a portion of the proper-
ty, the bequest of which was, in the opinion of the Court below,
void for remoteness.
