Construction of Pleading--Where the plaintiffs bill of complaint for specific performance of a contract for the purchase of a specified parcel of realty discloses on its face that the agreement was oral, the defendant may raise the defense of the statute of frauds by demurrer.'

Judicial Notice--The cases in which the Tennessee courts have applied the doctrine of judicial notice present no novel situations.
