In an action on a promissory note the plaintiff claimed, as a holder in due course, to be free from the defense of failure of consideration. When the plaintiff acquired the note it was physically attached to a conditional sales contract by the terms of which the payee was to furnish the maker with an oil burner which in truth was never furnished, this being the claimed failure of consideration. Breach of the sales contract apparently took place after the plaintiff acquired the note. Held, plaintiff, having knowledge of the terms of the contract, was not a holder in due course and took subject to the defense. Van Nordheim v. Cornelius, (Neb. 1935) 262N. W. 832.
