therefor, before they are launched, are non-maritime. Lions and pro-

ADVERSE POSSESSION.
L MISTAKB AS TO BOUNDARY.-An adjoining owner who, by mistako, los

aloson or builds upon the land of his neighbor, intending to claim ado
versely to the real or true boundary only, does not thereby acquire a
porsession adverse or hostile to the true owner; but if he takes posuer-
nion of the land under the belief and claim that it is his, he acquires as

adverse possession, even though the claim of title is the revolt o.

mistake as to the boundary line. Wilson v. Hunter, 63.
. MISTAKI AS TO BOUNDARY—INTENT.—The nature of the possession of

an adjoining owner who incloses or builds upon the land of his neigh.
bor depends upon the intent with which such possession is taken and
held. To bar an action for the recovery of the land so held the poe-
session must be actual, open, continuous, hostile, exclusive, and accom.
panied by an intent to hold adversely to, and not in conformity with,
the rights of the true owner, and must continue for the full period pro-

scribed by the statute of limitations. Wilson v. Hunter, 63.
& Notice—STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS. — Undisturbed adverse possession of

land ander color of title raises a presumption of notice thereof, and
constitutes a complete bar to an attack upon the title of the party in pas
session after the period prescribed by the statute of limitations bas
elapsed. King v. Carmichael, 303.

AGENCY.
1. POWERS OF ATTORNEY ARE STRICTLY INTERPRETED, and the authority is

never extended beyond that which is given in terms, or which is necer
sary

and proper for carrying the authority so given into full effect
Campbell v. Foster Home A88n., 818.
& POWER OF ATTORNEY TO SELL— AUTHORITY TO MORTGAGE.- A letter ol

attorney with naked authority to sell and convey, uncoupled with any
interest in the land or fund, does not authorize the attorney in fact to
execute a bond and mortgage in the name of the principal. Campbell

v. Foster Home Assn., 818.
& POWER OF ATTORNEY TO SELL-AUTHORITY TO MORTGAGE-A power of

attorney to sell and convey real estate, not coupled with an interest,
does not confer power to mortgage, and a mortgage executed under
such a power is void. Campbell v. Foster Home Assn., 818.
AUTHORITY OF Agent to EMPLOY ATTORNEY.-A general agent, with
authority to make collections of cash and notes for his principal, has
power to direct an attorney at law to bring suit, and to give a bond of
indemnity in the name of such principal. Swartz v. Morgan, 766.

ALTERATION OF INSTRUMENTS.
CONTRAOT EXECUTED IN DUPLICATE. - If a lease is executed in daplicato,

both the landlord and tenant retaining a copy, both copies are origin.
alo, and the fraudulent alteration by the tenant of the copy retained
by him does not annul the lease, because the remaining copy is suffie
cient to sustain the contract between the partion. Jonu v. Hoard, 17.
