Contest by Heirs to Be Started in a
Few Days.

Attorney O. H. Dean of Warner, Dean, McLeod, Holden & Timmonds said last night that the children of the late Dr. Isaac M. Ridge, by his first wife, had employed him to contest the will of their father, by which he left all of his estate, excepting $1,500, to his second wife.

"I will bring suit in the circuit court within a very few days," Mr. Dean said. "We will ask that the appointment of T. R. Morrow and Mrs. Margaret D. C. Ridge, as executor and executrix of the estate, be set aside."

Attorney Dean declined to discuss the terms of a will made by Dr. Ridge shortly before his last will. It is understood that the earlier will gave a larger amount of property to the children.
