Trying to Unravel a Family Bnarl. Tbe trial of a civil suit was begun yeaterday in depaitment four of tbe superior court, Judge Van Dyke presid ing, which involves the title to an estate valued at $85,000, and which, before a decision is reached, will develop some sensational features. The complaint, which was filed by Sarah E. McDaniel, Cora H. Gilfillan, Julia Logan and Fred Seunett, recites that on April 5, 1885. A, M. Fattison died in this city. That previous thereto, on March 4, 1885, be waa possessed of an estate valued at $00,000 (whioh bas since ap preciated in value until it is now, at a low valuation, worth $85,000) aud $6000 in cash on deposit in certain banks of this city. That on Maroh 4, 1885. A. M. Fattison conveyed to James H. W. Pattison, the defendant in the suit now on trial, for tiie sum of $1016, lota 20 and 21 in block lof the Orchard tract, and tbat A. M. Fattison did not intend to convey any ot .er property to him. That tbe defendant, James H. W. Fattison, with intent to defraud tbe plaintiffs in this aotion, altered the con veyance ao as to make itappear that tbe deed also conveyed lots 0 and 11 in blook V of the Align tract, and one-half oi lot 8 in block 9 ot Ord'a survey, and all the interest oi A. M. Pattieon in block <>9, Ord'a atirvey ; also lota 43, 123 and 125 in the city of Carthage, Mo. The plaintilTa further allege that the defendant is an attorney at law, and that in drawing tbe original instrument of trsnafer he purpoeeljr left blank apace* for, and did insert, the descrip tions oi tbe aeveral propertiea which tbey Bet up were fraudulently trans ferred to bim. That tbe defendant concealed tha deed from ihe plaintiffs until October 29, 1889, on which date they aued for the recovery of the property. The plaintiff, alao allege that for the purpoae of concealing the fraudulent transfers and the frauds which he bad perpsfrated on the heirs, the defendant and hia wife executed a deed to hia mo* ther, Mrs. A. M. Fattiaon, for all of tbe property except tbat originally intended for bim by his father. That ono year later he took advantage of hie mother's infirm and unsound meutal condition to prevail upon her to rettansfer to bim all of tbe property named in tbo fraudulent instrument. Tbat at tbe timo of thia last transfer bia mother waa absolutely under hia con trol and not in any way responsible for her acts, as ia evidenoed by the fact that tbe consideration passed for over $50,000 worth of property waa f5 and love and affection. ' Many other allegations of unfairness in his business relations With tbe plain tiffs are set forth in no uncertain lang uage, all of which tbe plaintiff, claim to be able to substantiate witb unimpeach able evidence.

A sensational story haa bssn in pro cess of incubation for several weeks. On or about the 22d of May of the pres ent year a prominent real estate dealer named A.J.
