MARY TYLER DID TO SAVE HER HEIRS TROUBLE She Transferred Nearly All Her Property to an Incorporated Organization Called "The Tyler Kutate" Real Kstate in Several Cities. Among the property items which the tity is trying to acquire title to for the proposeu xNintii regiment armory in ronrteeutn street is a lot belomnni? to the Tyler estate. The Tyler estate is a novelty among the corporations of the country. It is not the estate of a de ceased person, as one would naturally infer from the title, but ia the estate of a wealthy western widow, who h;.s had tier real estate holdings capitalized and a stock company formed to take and hold the titles to it. tier object is said to be to so arrange the titles to her property that when she comes to dispose of it by her will there will be the least possible opportunity left to disappointed relatives to contest her will and drag her name and private history into the courts and before the public. The certificate of incorporation of the estate recites that it was organized un der the laws of Missouri as a corporation for manufacturing and business pur poses, and is called "The Tyler Estate.' It was organized under the legal advice and direction of Henry Hitchcock, of the St. Louis bar, a lawyer of that western city, who is said to have assured his cli ent that the laws of Missouri authorized the organization and formal incorpora tion of real estate corporations. The founder and principal proprietor of the Tyler estate is Mrs. Mary Law rence Tyler, widow of Robert Tyler, of Louisville. She is said to be worth sev eral millions, principally in lands and property in this city, Philadelphia. Lou isville, St. Louis and other places, all of which, however, she has conveyed to the Tyler estate, taking the stock of the pe culiar corporation in payment. The es tate is capitalized at $ru0.000, nut that does not begin to represent the actual value of the property it owns THK LAW IX fiJCVKKAL STATKS The real estate recor1 of this county show the transfer of two pieces of prop erty to the estate by Mrs. Tyler in Feb rnary, 1888, the time when the corpora tion was formed. One of the items is the lot in Fourteenth street, which is wanted by the city for armory purposes, and the other is a business buihling and lot in Crosby street, between Broome and Spring streets The city authorities and the representatives of the estate could not agree upon the price to tie paid by the city for the Fourteenth street lot and condemnation, proceedings have then-' fore been begun, wherein the price will be fixed by a commission But the principal interest in the affair attaches to the corporation itself Many devices have been resorted to m titus past by wealthy people who had large estates to dispose of by will to prevent the quarreling of heirs over the manner in which the property has been distrib uted by the owner in his or her will, but this is thefirst instance ever heard of in which a private person, having n desire or intention of going into business, where some occasion for forming a limited ha bility corporation might exist, has vol untarily had her property capitalized and represented in stocks and bonds In some of the states corporations for the purpose of holding titles to real es tate are prohibited by law New York is said to be one of these states and I Hi nois another. But they are apparently sanctioned by the lawy of Missouri, and the law3 of this state permit t he holding of title to real estate by any corporation organized under the laws of any other state, the laws of which authorize the existence of a corporation for the pur pose stated. HOW THE SCHEME MAY WORK. Who the present officers of the Ty let estate are could not be ascertained. h.r any statement regarding the details of the organization whether the corpora tion has more than one executive officer, how the property is managed by the oflicers, or in what manner transfers of real estate belong- g to such a corpora tion could be made so as not to affect the value of its shares or to impair the secur ity of the bonds. How long a life such a corporation could have is a question, furthermore, vhich no lawyer could an swer offhand. But it is claimed for it that the prop erty can in this manner be held together for long periods of years, whereas, un der ordinary conditions, no soouer is a wealthy person's will filed for probate than a long contest begins in the courts between the various heirs over the man ner of its distribution among them. By incorporating, as Mrs. Tyler has done, it is declared that all trouble of this character is done away with. The testatrix wills uot her property, but a certain number of shares of her estate ; to each heir, .who is limited by his op portunities to either accept or reject them. This, however, still leaves the contesting heirs opportunities to fight over the distribution of the shares. But Mrs. Tyler expects to get the bet ter of this class of heirs by giving away the shares to the persons she desires to have them before her demise The cor poration. as said, is a novel one. but. like the trust, may prove to be only the forerunner of many which will be or ganized as soon as the legal status of the Tyler estate shall have been passed upon by some competent legal tribunal.

Some Sin:fe II peri men t .Showins Snf pritiii ICeeniblaiirea. An infaut was crowing loudly and lus tily somewhere at the back of the house. The sounds were inarticulate to out siders; but Dr. Robinson, the baby's father, if he heard them, would doubt less be able to interpret them as the in teresting remains of the Simian tongue. For Dr. Louis Robinson, whenever dur ing the last two or three years he found a leisure hour in his bu3y life, has studied the ape in the babe. It was in order to obtain some detailed information on this subject from the author of "Darwinism in the Nursery" that our representative had called on Dr. Robinson at Lewis ham: "The article is intensely interesting," I said to the doctor, "but there is not enough of it. We all want to know more about your experiments with the young j apes, w hat are the actual discoveries your experiments led to?' "pimply this, that every new lori! child, unless it is sickly or otherwise im perfectly developed, has a most wonder ful power in the flexor muscles of the forearm, and will support the w non weight of its body, during the first few hours after birth, for a period varying from ten seconds to two minutes and ;i half. Now, everybody knows that in monkeys the power of grip is very fully developed; qnadrumana can do unj' thing with their hands and arms, and in cases of danger this power is a chief means of self preservation. I have now experimented on 150 babies; some ot them an hour or two, some a few days old and in two cases only have they failed, to hang by their hands, even the tiniest supporting the weight of its body for ten seconds, most of them much longer, and in a few cases they have clung to a finger or a stick for two min utes and a half. And even in the two cases failure was due to other causes than the infants' lack of muscular strength. I ought to say that I never attempted to experiment on weak children, who might be injured by the exposure. A blanket w;is placed below the child, so that when it dropped it dropped on a soft, warm surface. Whenever it was possible the experiment was mad-- and the photograph taken in the presence of the mother. "On the face of one, aged sixty mi a utes, sat stoic indifference; two more looked energetic, though placid, as they stuck with their round little fists to a branch at the end of which appeared two hands, looking very gigantic in com parison to the very youthful pf-rformers. Some others were evidently expressing their feelings in the Simian tongue, for their mouths tremendous sized mouths they seemed were wide open. The1 immature jegs, ausumiy email m pro- i portion to the arm s were drawn up; the babes looked indeed like tailless infant apes. "Observe the big toe," Dr. Robinson went on. "I have noticed over and over' again that in the case of young infants it is turned outward, like a thumb, as in the case of monkeys, whose hind feet are au additional pair of hands. And when ever I have held a finger or a stick close to the infant's feet while it was hanging' by its arms there has been an attempt at clutching the stick with the feet. This seems to me another instance of the sur vival of the ape's instincts in the human child. "Another curious fact that struck me was that even when a child had been hanging by its hands for over a minute this seems a short period, but just try to hang to a horizontal bar, supporting the weight of your body by your hands only, for a minute or two it let go more because it wanted to change its position than because it was. tired. Sometimes 1 gave it my finger to clutch as soon as it dropped on to the blanket, and I could feel by the energetic grip that the little animal was by no means exhausted." Cor. Pall Mall Gazette. Ilritlet's Dilemma. A newly arrived domestic was secured to. do housework by an up town family in Lewiston. In the course of her duties she was told to iron some clothes and hang them upon the horse. A little later the maid appeared before her mistress with the clothes in her hands and a look of manifest perplexity on her face. "Why didn't you hang the clothes upon the horse, Bridget?" inquired the latter. vSure, an I tried to, ma'am, but he kept movin, so he did, an the' wouldn't stav." Sure enough, knowing no other horse in her native land, she had gone to the stable and endeavored to hang them upon the restive Dobbin, with the result indi cated. The above is a fact. Leviston (Me.) Journal. A I"ive-j ear-old'a Opinion. In the opinion of five-year-old Orate, only a married woman with "a family and the cares of a honsa on her hands could be called "a lady." She was talk ing to her aunt a young lady one day about a certain friend of the family who came up to Grace's standard of lady hood. "And what do you think of me?" asked her aunt. Without the l.iit in tention of being impolite bat with very decided ideas of her own, nevertheless, Grace replied: "Humph! you're not a lady; you're nothing but an old giri!" New York Tribune.
