Embezzlement is a species of larceny, and the term is applicable to arses of furtive and fraudulent appropriation by clerks, serv- ants, or carrlers of property coming i.nto their possession by virtue of their employ- ment.

The growing crops of those vegetable pro- ductions of the soil which are annually produc- ed by the labor of the cnitii-ator. They are deemed personal property, and pass as such to the executor or administrator of the occupier. whether he were the owner in fee, or for life, or for years, if he die before he has actually cut, reaped, or gathered the same; and this. althon,-zb, being affixed to the soil, they Dlblilt for some purposes be considered, while grow- ll.l.'.', as part of the realty. “'11urt0n.

The term also denotes the right of a tenant to take and carry away, after his tenancy has ended. such annual products of the land as have resulted from his own care and labor.

Emhlemenis are the away-going crop: in other words, the crop which is upon the ground and unreaped when the tenant goes away. his lease having determined: and the right to em- hlements is the right in the tenant to take away the away-going crop, and for that purpose to come upon the land, and do all other necessary things thereon.
