On November 15th, 1907, the lessees accepted'and took. possession of the leased premises, and posted notice thereon that the same would soon open as a moving-pictiue theater, and attempted to sublet them. Said Schwaner, J r., took measurements of said premises in reference to said front, and consulted with a contractor with reference to constructing an ornamental front for the lessees similar to those in use in other places for exhibitions of this kind. The lessees never put in said front, and never actually occupied said premises. As the rent came due, it was duly demanded, but has not been paid. After November 15th, 1907, said Schwaner, Jr., at different times showed said premises to different persons, and endeavored to sublet the same. The defendant objected to parol evidence that it was agreed that the front was a fixture of the movingpicture business to be built by the lessees; to the testimony of the plaintiffs that the premises were ready for occupancy November 15th, and that the lessees accepted the same without objection. These objections were overruled and the evidence admitted. Hadlai A. Hull and Frank L. M cGuire, for the appellant (defendant). Donald G. Perkins and Wallace S. Allis, -for the appellees (plaintiffs). HALL, C. J. Want of title in the plaintiffs to the premises at the time the lease was delivered is not a defense to this action. The plaintiffs acquired title September 24th, and before the commencement of the term on November 15th. The title acquired by the plaintiffs September 24th, rendered the previously delivered lease effective. Salisbury Savings Bank v. Cutting, more
