A generation ago men named friends or relatives as their executor.
Seldom, therefor, id tne rrt fjn act in that capacity twice Herce,
it took him lcng;r t? lejrn what to do than to do it.
By the same reasoning (or want of it) you would select a tailor to
shingle your house or a plumber to make your shoes, because he Is your
friend or relative.
Out of the needless loss, annoyance and expense produced by the at
temps of these inexperienced friends to administer, comes a demand for
trained and responsible executors. The Trust Company is the modern ma
chine contrived to meet that demand.
Here are reasons why the Trust Company is making the personal execu
tor a thing of the past:
1. Personal executors die often in the midst of administering an es
tate. That means trouble, delay and almost certain loss. The Trust
Company is perpetual. If one of its officials dies, the others contirue his
work without an hour's interruption. A Trust Company's work is organized
2. The Trust Company, having nore at stake. Is more careful.
You forgive the shortcomings of the friends or relative. You hold the
corporation to strict account.
The friend or relative has no professional reputation at stake. If ha
does his work bunglingty, that's the end of it. The Trust Company dare not
