Agreement in Ke.raint of Trade.—"Uncle."—We are serry, but, unless you can get the precise terms of the agreement, we cannot advise you. You ought not to have signed the agreement without having a properly executed counterpart for your own use, or, at any rate, a copy. Mother's Propeity.—"A. B.

Poor Kates.—"Old Broll You will probably have to pay the rates in the long run but, as you say that some of your neighbours are going to contest the point, we think you had better do nothing till you see the result of their action. It is always desirable (when possible) to obtain legal exjierience at the expense of other people. Apprenticeship.—"Garwite."—The agreement to ftrve binds the apprentice for the full term agreed uprn, though there were no i1.denturE3- Tl!e master, however, would find it by no means easy to recover from an infant apprentice the damages which he would be entitled and able to recover if he were of full Gossipping Wife.—"E. J. B'. R.It is very hard for you to be kept from your wife in the way you describe, and you would certainly not incur any punishment if you locked your wife out if she did not come in at reasonable hours. She would. how- ever. probably be held to lie justified in breaking into the house at any rate, if she did so, no police magis- trate would punish her. Insurance.—"Pollie."—Unless the policy was taken out by your Jaw husband for the benefit of yourself and your children, under the provisions of the Married Women's Property Acts, the policy moneys belong to his estate, and must go to his trustee in bankruptcy.

Copy of Will.—"William."—We cannot tell' what the solicitor would charge for giving you particulars of a will, and he probably would decline to furnish them unless you are directly interested under the will. You had better get a copy from Somerset House. Yon would ha.ve to get someone in London to search for you and bespeak a. copy of the will. The search ft e will be Is., but the cost of the copy would depend upon the length of the will. Cipy of Lease.—"D. W."—It is unfortunate that the original lease has "withered away." The proper course w,), Id he for the society to have what is called an "attested copy" of the lease made at ome—that. is, a copy of the whole document, signatures and all. Your solicitor will make this for you. The society could then sell the property on the original lease and the attested copy. You cannot expect the owners of the estate to execute a new lease. Leaving Service Without Adrice.—" C. A. M.— We do not think that any cause would justify a mar or a body of men in leaving his or their employer's service at a moment'- notice, or without giving proper notice according to any agreement he or they may be under, except at their own wish as to forfeiture of wages aud action for breach of contract. Nor do we think that it has ever been said that railway men are under any circumstance justific 1 iu leaving the com- pany's service at a moment's notice. Of course, a man may at all times decline to obey unlawful orders given him by his master, but that is a different.thing from leaving his employment at a moment's notice.
