It is ordered, therefore, that said portion of the judgment appealed from be and the same is hereby reversed with directions to reenter the same in appellant's favor on the cause of action set forth in the complaint; and it is further ordered that in accordance with the terms of such stipulation the companion appeal taken by the said Chas. A.
