In Heyg^aK^ t,_^i .. 117 111. kpp, M2, thiis court, in

an opinion \>y kr . Prfsidlnf, Juf?tice l'aki»r, aft^r a thorough re-

rivm of the cases, stated the 1*aw as felloes:

*XJi« statutes of this etnte have, froa. the earliest days,
proTideci for appeals frocii JjudbB^onta at luw an well as decrees in
chancery, and t ere in ais unbroken line of d-^ciriona to the eij eot
that a perfected appeal operates as a supersedeas or stay of pro-
ceedings under the ^ud^ent or decree.**

In Ma st<»rs v. Masters . 249 Hi, App, 352, this rule of law

vas interpreted as prevent tnti the lower court from perrcitting any

one to interrene while an appeal was pending in the 3upr«ue oourt.

It "trig there said:

"The law le well eettl^d that 'f'hufr) nn ar>p«»al in the case is

perfected to a Supreaiw or ApT>ellate court, the oourt from which the

apneal has been taken loef^s juriadic.tlon of tho case until ufti»r

the appeal has been finally diepoeefl of by Apt>«liate irlbunal.*

Moreover, we are of the opl»*lon that »»v«»n aasuioinK that the

lower court had authority to appoint a receiver whil«» the cause was

pending in this court, it was not neoeseary to protest the interests
