The Higginbotham Will Case

Oneonta, Ala., August 11. (Special.)--The notable Higginbotham will case was decided here again yesterday in favor of the two sons--O.L. and P.W. Higginbotham. The case has been full of interest. W.H. Higginbotham died two years ago, leaving a large landed estate in this and Jefferson county. In his will he left all of his property to his twso sons. His daughter and youngest child, Miss Kittie, contested the validity of the will on the ground that it was procurred through undue influence. At the trial in the circuit court here, two years ago, the case was decided in favor of the contestant. The supreme court reversed and remanded the case, but the court here yesterday again rendered a verdict in favor of the contestant, which probably ends the litigation.
