(Continued from Page One that prior to their return Mrs. Romans died, leaving defendants and others as her heirs. That nothing was paid on these notes for $6000 given by Mrs Romans or her heirs, and no offer payment made, and no demand for payment of either interest or principal. Mr. Laub therefore asks a decree can celling and setting aside said written assignment of said written contract, and that hisrighr and title to owner ship of the Laub block be confirmed and quieted, offering to return the notes. This is the substance of the pe tition as filed by Mr. Laub through his attorneys, Shaw, Sims and Kuehnle. The defendants, through their attor neys, C. C. Cole, of Des Moines, a Conner and Lally, make answer first in which they deny all the allegations foregoing except that the defendants make claim to title by virtue of the written assignment to Mary E. Romans of the contract between plaintiff and Messrs. Romans and W. H. Laub, and that said assignment and contract were illed for record on Aug. 31, 1903. In an amendment to the answer de- fendants setup, 1st, that the other heirs should be made parties to the suit and that the case cannot be properly tried unless the administrator, R. A. Ro mans, is also included as a defendant, which motion was overruled by Judge Powers in January. A second amendment to answer sets forth: 1st. That Mr. Lmb conveyed the property, with general warranty to B. Romans and W. 11. Laub, and that Romans and Laub then executed a written contract covering "the store block," that said contract might prop erly be called a bond or defeasanc That Potnans and W. H.

Romans, and managed and con trolled same for the purpose of realizing therefrom the money advanced by them and paying encumbrances, taxss, re pairs and other expenses That J. B. Romans managed the property down to about Sept. 1st, 1903 2nd. That after making said bond Mr. Laub sold for the consideration of $0000, the then fair value of tha proper ty, all his right, title and interest in aud to said property to Mary E Ro mans and on Dec 12. 1898, made the written assignment of contract before mentioned. That Mary E. Romans gave in payment her notes for $0000 payable at dift'eieut periods, and it was that the revenue of the property should be applied on said notes and the balance, if any, should, at maturity, be paid by Mrs. Romans. That in pursuance with this agree ment the net proceeds of the rentals were paid to Mr. Laub at various times from June 1899 to Aug. or Sept. 1903, and that by such payments the notes Balle-Brodersen Gs.

That in order to prevent misunder standing Mr. Laub wrote in his own handwriting upon each i.ote "for store block," and that the notes were given in consideration for the purchase of said store blocK and were fully paid. That in August, 1903, H. C. Laub, bv threats of suit and otherwise obtained from the grantee in said deed, and the obligors in said bond, J. B. Romans and W. H.

Romans, as administrator, also files petition of intervention based on the same statement of facts as above given. Residence of Hon. H. C. Laub. The grounds for the new church to be erected by the Scientist association are being prepared for the foundation of the new edifice. Plans for the building have not fully matured, but the committee has outlined something after which the plans will be made. The building will be colonial in archi tecture. The size of the building will be 30x00 with a porch six feet deep covered by a part of the roof supported by 14 inch pillars, a hall 10x14 leads into the auditorium with large door entering the reading room, the size of which is 14x20. This room is to be made to be thrown open into the audi torium. The auditorium is to be 30x46 and seated with opera chairs and will probably have a raised floor.
