1875.] MooRING v. THE STATE. 85
Statement of the case.
question in the case is, Did appellant have the right to
abandon his security, as set up in his suit, and obtain
judgment on the note? The time extending the payment
of the note having expired, there is nothing in the mortgage
to prevent the plaintiff from prosecuting his suit on
the note into a judgment. After accepting the provisions
of the mortgage, he could not disregard the terms of payment
and enforce satisfaction of his debt out of the rnortgage
property, contrary to the order of payment, as provided
in the mortgage, but still no sufficient reason is seen
why he should not have judgment on the note without the
security as requested.
The judgment of the District Court is reversed and
case remanded.
REVERSED AND REMANDED.
