Dr. Burr nays that ^ho female,
though outnumbered at birth and by
Immigration,, reaches qld'age in far
greater numbers, th n a ?he malo; that
this disparity is due to cerraiu ex
Mnain MIIMIB capable of inducing
cardie-vascular presen il tty, to which
toxins the malo is obviously more
prone than the female; that the nic

tion of a cardiovascular toda, and is,
therefore, one of ?ho very significant
reasons why fewer men'than women
attain old age,

transaction now recited hy Heard died
about-n'ne or ten years ago, and th?,
"?? Smith will was made before Tur

calls tlie circumstances, tho will was
made about ten yea i's ago and there
was nothing secret about its-m-akins
at that time or since. Holli of these
gentlemen wltncsiad' ' the will, and
watched Mr. Smith r.'gn tho document.
N'eithtr of them, however, readsthe
will, or were made familiar with its
contents. That lt was Jim Smith's
will, however, they know frcin tho
foot that Mr. Smith told them so, and
to Mr. Hoard at least, he had dis
cussed the subject on mare than on?
occasion; certainly as* few times as
twice, cad maybe more.
The Story of the Will Just Told.
Mr. Henry Heard ls particularly
weil known throughout the enlire sec
tion of fae state where he now lives,
and In the community surrounding tho
Smith estate proportion. Among the
most prominent people there he ls
held In high esteem.
^A day or two ago, while discussing
lite Smith estate Irigation with a
ft lend of Sparts, a mutual frfend of
the late Farmer lim Smith, Mr. Heard
mentioned tho fnet that he bad wit
nessed a will made by Jim Smith, at
the Smith home in. Smlthonia, and
iii i*t thc document was signed by'.Mr
arniih before being yvjtneeseu by ."hi m -

Whiten''the document' was drawn, or
by whom, Mr. Heard did not know
it least, he did not say. It was sighed
und witnessed et night, though, ill Mr.
Smith's room, or ?nice, at tho Smith
residence. ' / :
At least once ?prior to that n'ght
Mr. $mlth had told Mr. Heard ho had
fi will, and wanted him to witness it.
3n this particular night Mr. Smith
inked Mr. Heard -to come to his room
with him beff.ro going to. bed and,
an taking a se st at a table, Mr. Smith
drew out a ?egal document, ?y.???;
'This hi my will I want you to wit
\9TS it." Mr. Smith signed the docu
neht first, and the signature .was then
witnessed by Mr. Heard and Mr. Tur
