This cause has been heard and considered on the record, on the briefs of the contending parties, and on the oral arguments of attorneys representing the parties;


And it appearing, without dispute, that the appellant administrator and the appellee (defendant) are citizens and residents of the State of Kentucky and were such at the time of the institution of this action and that, therefore, there was no diversity of citizenship to vest jurisdiction in the district court, see Mecom, Adm'r, v.
