Please take notice, that the above-named plaintiff [or, defendant — naming which if all do not unite] hereby appeals to the Court of Appeals [or, to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, for the Department] * from the judgment [or, order]of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court for the Department [or, of this Court], entered herein in the office of the clerk of the county of [or, of the clerk of the Court], on or about the day of

The right to appeal is not waived by the appellants having obtained, and had inserted in the judgment appealed from, taxable costs and allow ances. Smith v. Havens Relief Fund Soc., 115 App. Div. 185.

2 An appeal will not lie from the determination, which is only the authority or basis of a judgment, but the appeal must be taken from the judgment. See Stevens o. Cent. Nat. Bank, 162 N. Y. 253.

No appeal lies from a decision, un der Code Civ. Pro., 88 1021, 1022, upon which the judgment has been entered ; if such an appeal is included in an appeal from the judgment, the

appeal from the decision will be dis-
missed, with costs. See Rees v. N. Y.

4 A mistake in the date will not affect, if the determination appealed from is correctly described. See People er rel. Kathan v. County Board, 75 App. Div. 110, 77 N. Y. Supp. 620.

41 If the notice of appeal from a judgment also contains an appeal from an order, as to which the time to appeal has expired, it has been held that the notice may properly be returned, and a motion to compel its acceptance will not be granted. Armstrong v. Heide, 49 Misc. 430. Com pare, however, Ziadi 1. Int. St. Ry. (0., 97 App. Div. 137, 89 N. Y. Supp. 606, holding that the Special Term is without power to set aside a notice of appeal, or to make an order that it stand. If a notice of appeal to the Court of Appeals is returned because of tardy service, the Court of Appeals

will entertain a motion to compel its acceptance, and will not reserve the determination of the question until the argument of the appeal. Wingert v. Krakauer, 180 N. Y. 265.

5 When a statute requires the notice to be subscribed, a failure to do so makes the notice a nullity. Necker v. Nardi, 51 Misc. 1 (under $ 311 of the Municipal Court Act).
