SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. VOLUME 18. SEDALIA, MO., TUESDAY DECEMBEB 7, 1886. MARY SUGDEN SUES. She Enters Suit Through Her At toruey to Set Aside Her rat he i 's Will. though Muc l has l)eeB concerning: Geo. during his life, jrlups the most urous man ever in beddha.li.ven now that he is dead, his foilies during life have left behind effects which like lianquo's ghost will not' down and are likely to keep his memory green for a long time. It will be remembered that only a month be fore his demise he made a will disinheriting his only child and daughter, Mary J. Sugden, who for years had been his only friend and companion, and bequeathing the bulk of his estate to his nephews and nieces in Philadelphia, a full account of which transaction was publi-siied, together with a copy of his will at the time or his death. The injured daughter, Miss Mary, at that time in timated that she would contest the validity of the will; owing to the con dition of her father and his pecu liar surroundings at the time the will was executed. Yesterday attorney F. Houston appeared in the circuit court and filed a petition in her behalf, entering suit under the title of "Mary Jane Sugdeu vs. Sam uel Sugden, Joseph Sugden, Sarah Sudden, Annie Sugden and James C. Thompson. . The petition states that the will ' of the late George S. Sugden shnuld be set aside tor the following reasons : First That the deceased, at the time of its execution and for a long time previous thereto, was of unsound mind, body and health. Second That the defendants, Sug dens, conspired together for the purpose of securing it and through their agent, Knocked Senseless.
