Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: deny that the elder Ritchey received the money. There-fore, so far as the $4,000 of the consideration paid to the father for the 240 acres of land is concerned, the question must be determined upon the bona fides of 'Edward's title to the Walters land, which, as above shown, is established.
