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.
