has been to certify such nomination. If errors
in certification are not avoided confusion

public highway on his own premises, any
fruit , shade or lorest trees, shall be al
lowed by the supervisors of roads, a in bate
ment of his road tax one dollar lor every

Before Judge Over at Pittsburgh
Monday a bearing was begun in the contest
of the will of the late Anna Keitz, of Pitts
burgh. The testator died July 0, 1891,
leaving an estate worth about SIJ,OOO.
By her will she given $-.000 to the St.
Paul's Evangelical Lutheran church;
$2,000 to the Concordia Orphans' Home,
of Delano, Pa.; SSOO to the Martin Luther
Orphans' Uome, near West Rockbury,
Mass. ; S2OO to Leonard Poechler, and $.) to
ber sister, Eva Martin. The residue ol ber
estate is given to her pastor, the Kev.
Nicholas Sorgel. Ybc will is contested by
the sister, whose name, however, is Mrs
Eva Domboff and not Martin as stated in
the will. Mrs. Douihoff stales that she is
the sole heir at-law of the deceased. .She
asserts that her sister was of unsound
mind and incapable of making a will, that
she was 76 years of age when she died and
could not read or write English. She
claims that the deceased did not know the
value of her estate nor bad any knowledge
of the homes she made bequests to. The
Rev. Mr. Soergel, who wrote the will it is
charged used undue influence over her and
retained the will in bis possession, the
deceased never knowing its coutents ex
cept what he might have told her when
she made her mark to it. Au evidence pf
her memory was that she did not know
her sister's name, the latter having been
married to Domboff tor rilteen years.

houso. Mr. Simpson hired a horse and

completed the dislocation.
