1890, and for a long time prior thereto, the said Moses Overton was the owner in fee simple of the following described real estate, situate in Mercer county, Missouri, to wit: The southwest quarter of the southwest quarter, and ten acres off the south side of the southeast quarter of the southwest quarter, of section No. three (3), and all that part of the northwest quarter of the southeast quarter of the northeast quarter of section (4) four lying east of Grand river, and ten acres in the northeast corner of the northeast quarter of the northeast quarter of section (9) nine, all in township No. sixty-five (65), of range No. twenty-four (24), in all ninety-one acres, which said real estate plaintiffs allege is, and was at the time aforesaid, of the value of two thousand dollars. That, on the said 230 day of December, 1890, the said Moses Overton, who was then of the age of eighty-four years, resided with the defendants James Overton and Randolph Overton.

Overton. That the said Moses Overton, at the time last aforesaid, and for a long time prior thereto, and from the said 23d day of December, 1890, until the time of his death, to wit, March 22, 1891, was, by reason of old age, mental imbecility, and physical debility, so diseased in body and in mind as to be totally incompetent and incapacitated to transact any business whatever, and for the causes aforesaid was unable to know or understand the value of his property, or to make an intelligent disposition thereof. That, on the said 23d day of December, 1890, the defendants Randolph Overton and James Overton, well knowing the premises, and well knowing the mental imbecility of the said Moses Overton, as aforesaid, and intending and contriving to cheat, wrong, and defraud the said Moses Overton and these plaintiffs out of the real estate hereinbefore described, while the said Moses Overton was temporarily residing with them, did persuade, induce, and cause the said Moses Overton, for the sum of six hundred dollars, to convey said real estate to the defendant Randolph Overton, which conveyance is recorded in Book 25, page 191, in the office of the recorder of deeds in and for Mercer county. That said real estate was of the value of two thousand dollars, which defendants well knew. That the said Moses Overton was, at the time of the execution of said conveyance, by reason of the physical inability and mental imbecility aforesaid, utterly incompetent to make said sale, transact said business, or understand the value of said real estate, or to know the conseguences of said act, all of which defendants at the time well knew; and, well knowing the premises, as aforesaid, and with the intent to cheat, wrong, and defraud the said Moses Overton and these plaintiffs, did willfully, knowingly, and fraudulently persuade, induce, and cause the said Moses Overton to execute the deed aforesaid. That, in order to procure the six hundred dollars aforesaid, to pay the purchase price of said real estate, said Randolph Overton executed a deed of trust to

said real estate to the defendant John C. Casteel, to secure him, the said Casteel, in the sum of six hundred dollars, which trust deed was executed on the 14th day of January, 1891, and is recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds in and for Mercer county, at Book 2, page 13. That plaintiffs bring into court and tender to the said Casteel, mortgagee as aforesaid, the said sum of six hundred dollars, with the interest thereon to time of trial. That the said Moses Overton, in his lifetime, demanded of defendants that they reconvey to him said real estate, at the same time offering to return to defendants the said sum of six hundred dollars, the purchase price thereof, which the defendants then and there refused to do or perform, and still refuse to do or perform. That, after the death of the said Moses Overton, these plaintiffs demanded of defendants that they convey said real estate to the said Moses Overton, his heirs or assigns, and at the same time offered to return to defendants said sum of six hundred dollars, the purchase price of said real estate, as aforesaid, with all the interest thereon, which the defendants then and there refused to do. Plaintiffs therefore pray that the said deed from the said Moses Overton to the defendant Randolph Overton be set aside and held for naught, that the trust deed from the said Randolph Overton to the said John C. Casteel be set aside and held for naught, and that the said Casteel be required to receive the said sum of six hundred dollars, with the interest thereon, tendered as aforesaid, and that all the interest of the said Randolph Overton and John C. Casteel be vested in the heirs of the said Moses Overton, and for other and proper relief."

Demurrer: “Now comes the defendant Randolph Overton, and demurs to the fourth amended petition in this cause for the following reasons: First. Because there is a defect of parties plaintiff in this: The petition alleges that Moses Overton, deceased, under whom plaintiffs claim title to the real estate in controversy, left a last will, which has been duly probated, and that plaintiff Joel H. Shelly is the executor of said will; but the petition fails to show that said Joel H. Shelly, as such executor or otherwise, has any interest in said real estate, or that said real estate is mentioned in or disposed of by said will, or that said Joel H. Shelly has legal capacity to try this suit. Second. Because the petition does not state facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action, and because it does not show that the other plaintiffs or defendants have any just interest with the said Joel H. Shelly, or any other interest. Third. Because the petition shows that the parties in interest have not united therein to set aside said deed, and that sereral of them are opposed to setting it aside, and that several of the said parties in interest, and heirs of said Moses Overton, de ceased, are opposed to this suit and to setting aside deed, and that plaintiffs have no authority to maintain this suit.
