Excerpt: ...note that the Federal courts in bankruptcy proceedings, recognized the right of the landlord in Mississippi to be paid his rent in preference to other creditors. J. T. Hutchinson, for appellee. The sole question presented by this record is, whether the lessor of a storehouse is entitled to have a prior lien fixed upon the proceeds of a stock of goods which had been kept in the house, but sold by the administratrix of the lessee, under an order of the chancery court, and removed from the store more than thirty days before any steps were taken to assert or establish a lien for unpaid rent, no efiort having been made to seize the goods or to fix a lien 'upon them in any shape or form, but the goods were sold at public outcry as authorized by the order of the court and brought in by parties and remained in the storehouse in which they were stored for sometime after the sale of same to the purchaser at the administratrix sale. Under Section 2851 of Code of 1906, it is contended by appellant that they have given them a lien on the goods stored in the storehouse for the rent in arrears and owing by the lessee the deceased A. S. Farr, and that the amount of their claim should be paid out of the proceeds of the sale by the administratrix in full for the reason that they have a lien given by this section of the code on goods stored in the store. You will notice from the reading of this section of the code that there is not even a suggestion to the landlord that he has a lien on goods stored in his houde for rent of same, the landlord only has a lien on the goods sold by him to his tenant as supplies (such as horses, mules and farming implements), and products grown by the ten Opinion of the court. 112 Miss. ant upon the rented premises, more
