OPINION

PER CURIAM.

Appeal from clerk's taxation of costs.

In this case plaintiff was appellant and defendants respondents. Defendants interposed a cross-appeal. Plaintiff prevailed on one issue and defendants prevailed on other issues. Plaintiff has taxed costs in the sum of $1,583.99 and defendants have taxed costs in the sum of $259 on their cross-appeal. Much of plaintiff's costs relates to the printing of the record, a large part of which involved the issues on which defendants prevailed. The costs should be apportioned between them. The total costs taxed *183 by plaintiff and defendants together amount to the sum of $1,842.99. One-half thereof is $921.50. Deducting costs taxed by defendants leaves a balance of $662.50.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that plaintiff be allowed costs and disbursements in the sum of $921.50 from which there shall be deducted the sum of defendants' costs amounting to $259, leaving a balance in favor of plaintiff of $662.50.
