J. T. Davis made an oath stating that he was entitled to the possession of one black horse mule, 8 years old. Davis claims that Elmer Guy unlawfully seized and detained the mule from Sternberger-Rainey Hardware Company. The mule was seized by Guy from Sam H. Bond to satisfy a mortgage on the mule. Dr. F. W. Whitehurst obtained a judgement against Bond and the mule was seized to be sold "as required by law." Bond also put the mule up as collateral on notes owed to Sternerger-Rainey Hardware Company .
