In 1923, one Jasper Jeffers, Jr. made a note for $400 and put up as collateral security a saw mill and a pair of mules and had the plaintiff as security. The note was not paid and a suit resulted for the sum of $491.30. Another case with the defendant against one F. V. Hamon, who had a one-half interest in the saw mill, which he later gained control of from Hamon. This suit avers that the defendant refuses to recognize the plaintiff's half interest in the saw mill, of which Potter owns the other half.
