A case to which attaches more than
ordinary interest has been decided by
W. J. Entrikin. master, in chancery.
who has submitted his findings to the
circuit court for approval. It is a
partition suit in which Calvin S. Girls,
a- Muscatine dentist, is plaintiff, and
Edward. P.ertha. Augustus, John and
Ellen Heyl and Sebastian J. Schell
and his wife, Christina, are defend
The property in dispute is a 40-
acre farm in Drury township. Sebas
tian Schell declaring that the deed bv
which it Was transferred hack to his
father, Frans Alois Schell, July 1
1S61, was never signed by him, and
therefore should not be held before
Frans Alois Schell had five chil
dren, one son and four daughters.
The books in the otlice of the county
recorder show that the son. Sebastian,
bought the farm from his father
March 17, l.s.it. paying therefor tlu
sum of $;!00, but there appears also
in the record a copy of a deed by
which the property reverted back to
the father from the son for a similar
consideration. This deed is signed
Sebastian J. Schell and John H. Fox.
While the name of the former's wift
Christina appears in the body of the
deed, her signature is not attached
Savs lie Cannot Write.
Sebastian Schell declares he could
not have written his name as it ap
pears on the deed of transfer to his
father-from the fact that he does not
know how to write. He proved his
illiteracy at the hearing before the
master and showed that he had learn
ed to write by following a copy. "S. J
Schell. He said he had never written
his given name in full and could not
do so if he tried. Hence he claimed
that the signature purporting to be
his was not written by him.
The master holds that notwith
standing the inability of Sebastian J.
Schell to write his name the certificate
of acknowledgment is of so much
higher authority the unsupported evi
dence i f the alleged maker of the deed
must be taken hs decisive of the mat
ter.' The deed in question, it should
be stated, wa's acknowledged in the
district court at Muscatine. Iowa.
Frans Alois Schell died in IS; and
by the terms of his will, admitted in
the Rock Island county court in that
year, his property was left to his wid
ow, Louisa Catherine, the same to he
divided equally among the five chil
dren at her death. Mrs. Schell. who
married again, has since died. Thom
as Brown, a Muscatine lawyer, rented
the farm in Drury, acting as agent for
the heirs, and accounting to Sebastain
Girls Gets nary.
In the meantime Calvin S. Girls
bought the interests of tJie three
daughters for small sums, the chil
dren of the fourth and Schell and his
wife not selling, Schell, of course,
contending that he held the deed to
the farm, and therefore should be
the only one to be consulted in case
of a proposed purchase. Girls accord
ingly brought a suit to have the pro
perty in dispute partitioned by order
of the court. The master recommends
that the farm be divided as follows:
17.23 interest to Girls. 5.25 to Sebastian
J. Sehell, and 1.25 each to Edward,
Augustus and John Heyls, all subjects,
however, to the inchoate dower inter
