was about 20 feet from half a bundle 1
bathers. He was taken out of the w .it

down, but two solid hours of despera
work failed to revive him. The at
tending physicians say that they thin'.v
that he suffered an attack of hea-t
trouble and that he was dead before
he was taken from the water. He wis

Hold as Judge Gest did in Clabri
Against Estate of Porter Skin
ner for Bequest in Will.
The appellate court at Ottawa h:r,
sustained Judge Cost in his decision
here in the contested claim in the es
tate of Porter Skinner, by which lie
awarded to the heirs of ilenrietti
Lathrop a bequest of $l.oo which t:n
testator in nis will lett to his sisters
daughter". The claim was contestel
because the sister had three daugh
t is, Henrietta being the oldest. Hit
heirs contended that Mr. Skinnrl
knew of only one, and that he had h -r
in mind when he" made the will as he
did. On the other hand the residuary
heirs of the estate claimed this bequest
to be void because of its ijuleiitiit--ness.
Senile Marshall represented
the executors of the estate, and J. F.
Witter the claimants.
