An action on a contract was commenced against the testator during his life time. After his death notice was given to claimants to present their claims as provided by statute, P. L. 1920 p. 96. On the expiration of the time limit the court granted a rule barring further presentation of claims. The action begun against the testator was then revived against the executor in pursuance of statutory authority, 1 Comp. St. 1910, p. 4. Held, that the action commenced against the testator was properly revived against the executor in accordance with the abatement statute, supra. Pull v. Nagle (N. J. Aug. 1930) 151 Atl. 385.
