Forms Now making. a ijill, is' a'.very shniile thins. If Vc-u have not' made yoors, delay no toTiger. If you cannot reach a lawyer, there aro printed forms Jhat imay ho used.. These are a help, and 'also a danger. M' you rely on 'the form, and do' not put in too'inany sug' these wills does very well. 'But the average -personals .'so ;apt to write into the form som'ething Schich in legal terms will mean some- thing other than that which the maker of the wiU intended. For instance, a known to tho being espe- cially desirous that the wife should have the farm, added attar the clause it .to her, rtfor her use." Hib intention: was that that much was to for' her, and not for Hio children. Now that of course tied up the farm -so that it could not be sold. .She Lad 'tho use of it during Uer Me, but she could not sell it; just tho very thing which the. testator had desired to se- cure for her. lie added the throo words to make doubly euro, and only .succeeded in depriving her that which ho wished hor to cave. A will be witnessed by two or moro competent witnesses, .who are 1 not beneficiaries under tho will. A very home-made document will hold In court if the judge is sure that it rep- resents tho will of the testator. It -'bo very clearly worded, and right to the point. But the cost of having a good law- yer write your will is not great, and it. Is much tbe bolter .way. You do need Mm to' tell you- how you- should leave your estate. That part you yourself should consider very carefully, but your property will bo 'moro likely to go to the once to whom you wish it to go, it you will employ a good lawyer to write your wHl. Naming an Executor You should name an executor, in. your will. This Is most important and will save mncli outlay. A judge will mrcly rn'iuiro a bond if tho executor Id nnmcd by testator. Bven If you wish your estate administered JUBI na ttio law rould do It, and there- fore have decided to make no will, oven then, appoint an executor. It la 1 'interesting to note how msmy times tho judge appoints tho widow tw tha ndminfstrator ot the estate of the band who dies Intestate. A will should bo simply worded, and 'ohoiild have ns few coniHttons as possible. Olton a man, in tho very excess of his love (or his family, at- tempts lo forseo and fruard against every possible danger may sur- round his family after ho is no longer 1 there to protect them, But tho Good haa so ordered that our foresight Is barely sufficient to uieot our omi iicoda wtillo living, and fow there are who can ace beyond Ow grave.
