swindled his mother out of a piece of prop-
ertj valued at S.'.oOO, by fraudulently pro-

I the case. He says that nine or ten years
there is so much trouble, aud paid for it
himself. He then transferred it without
consideration, to his mother, who was to
live hi it with him
At various tunes during the past seven
or eight years he has borrowed money and
givni mortgages un the property as securit)
and his mother has never at any time re

mortgages. .Mr. L-. c'isays she has at all
times reiogniztd his real ownership of the
projierty, although it was in her name, and
has tiiijiientl told him that if he wanted
Jt any tiuii to sell it she would not object.
There is at present a mortgage on
the property for SU0O. Mr. Leach
had an opior!uiiity to sell the prop
erty and get prtqierty nearer to his
place of business and he asked his mother
to trausfi r the projierty to him, he to as
sume all incumbiaiices and give her a
mortgage on it for S-IU0. She consented
and the deed was drawn and the transfer
made in Amos Wolfe's law office, the deed
being read to the old lady before she signed
it. She nreived the mortgage and Mr.
Leach says he supposed that ended the
matter, but the old lady being influenced by
some outside parties instituted the suit.

soon she blossomed lorth as a fult-iledged
woman of the town, although It must be said
that shents always of modest and quiet

house was A. L. Mr Reynolds, a wealthy
manufacturer of iotash. who lived with his
family. He is a man probably nfty years
