RULE FROM GRAVE
A TESTATRIX'S ORDERS LONDON. Directions in a woman's will were described as "a case of ruling the world from the grace," by Mr. Justice Vaisey, in the Chancery Court. He said the will was a "fine example of private enterprise." The best thing to do with it was to tear it up. Author of the will was Mrs. Catherine Watson, Saint Bees, Cumberland, who left £3522.
Provisions in the will were: One beneficiary to be cut out if he "caused the least unpleasantness in any way whatsover." Another beneficiary to be cut out if she lived with her mother at any time. All beneficiaries to be "persons of an exemplary life and members of the Church of England."
