That in the division of the Tinnin estate the land west of these lots 5 and 6 was given to the defendant, and he has been in possession of it for the past thirteen years." Conclusions of Law.--" 1. That the strip of land which plaintiffs seek to recover in this suit, to wit, the strip ten varas wide, east of the east line of.the Tinnin tract, is not embraced in or any part of lots 5 and 6 owned by plaintiffs.

"4. That even if it be conceded that the strip of land aforesaid originally belonged to lots 5 and 6, and further, that there is no such limitation in this case as would protect defendant, then the boundary line having been agreed upon between Campbell and Tinnin, in 1875 or 1876, and a fence built on it, and recognized as such until 1884 by them, and the fence being there when plaintiff bought, would estop plaintiff from denying this to be the true boundary of her tract. "Judgment will be rendered, establishing lots 5 and 6 to be the separate property of Mrs. Elizabeth Eddie, and establishing the line between defendant and plaintiff to be where the fence is now located, and for the defendant for costs."
