Syllabus

In an action to try the title to land where there is conflicting evidence as to certain natural objects named in running the lines, an instruction to the jury that if, after fully considering the conflicting evidence, they are left doubtful and uncertain, they will be justified in locating the grant by referring to such of the natural objects as are certain is not error.

Such is the effect of the instruction to the jury in this case.

The case is stated in the opinion.
