410.—Enth.-e tenancy. A sole possession by one person. called "severaity." which is contrary to several tenancy, where a joint or com- mon possession is in one or more.—Eiitire use, benefit, etc. These words in the helico- dum of a trust-deed for the benefit of 5. married woman are equivalent to the words “sole use.” or ‘sole and separate use." and consequently her husband takes nothing under such deed. Heathman v. Hall. 35 N. O. 414.

ENTIRETY. The whole, In contradistinction to a moiety or pzut only. When land is conveyed to husband and wife, they do not take by moieties, but lioth are seised of the euliretj/. 2 Kent, Comm. 132; 4 Kent, Comm. 362. Pnrceners, on the other hand. have not an ciztircty of interest, but each is properly entitied to the whole of a distinct moiety. 2 Bl. Comm. ISS.

The word is also used to designate that which the law considers as one whole, and not capa'bie of being divided into parts. Thus, a judgment, it is held, is an entirctj/. and, if void as to one of the two defend- ants, cannot be valid as to the other. So. if a contract Is an entirety, no part of the consideration is dne untii the whole has been performed.

ENTITLE. In its usual sense, to entitle is to giie a right or titie. Therefore a pm-— aon is said to be entitied to property when he has a right to it. Com. v. Moorhesd, 7 Pa. 00. Ct. R. 516; Thompson v. Thomp- son. 107 Ala. 163, IS Sonth. 2-H. .

In ecclesiastical law. To entitle is to give a title or ordination as a minister.

This remedy luhich must in nil cases he pursued peaceably) takes place in three only out of the five sgiecies of ouster. viz., abatement. intrusion, an disscisin; for. as in these three cases the original entry of the wron...-dner is unlawful. so the wrong may be remedied by the mere entry of the fornicr possessor. But it is otherwise upon a discontinuance or deforceinent for in tliose latter two cases the former possessor cannot remedy the wronz by entry, but must do so by action. in-



asmuch as the oripinai entry being in these cases lawful, and therefore conferring an ap parent right of possession, the law will not suffer such apparent right to be overthrown by the mere act or entry of the clainianfi Brown.
