life recently, snd hla second wife, Mrs.
Nellie Keellne Rawitzer, according to
which she renounced all other right, and
wa to receive $10,000, If left a widow, and
only $6,000 If either party secured a di
vorce, has Juat been brought to light in
Mrs. Rawltser has applied to Probata
Judge Bryce Crawford for an allowance
of 1260 per month, pending the settlement
of the eatate. At the hearing of the ap
plication the Flrat Truat company, aa
executor of th estate, opposed such al
lowance, and cited the ante-nuptial agree
ment as a reason why no other settle
ment should be made with Mra. Rawitser.
Mra Rawltser's lawyer argued that
the stipulation concerning a poaslhle di
vorce in the agreement was against pub

ment w-as void and should not stsnd In

the board a letter August 25, urging the
need of medical Inspection in the achools,
because of the prevalence of dlptherla

committee, It is said, and further th
health commissioner knoweth not, except
that his advice waa not followed on the
opening day of school.
The failure of the board to pay any at

cenaed the health commissioner. He ap
peared before the committee and urged
peraonally the need of medical Inspection.
He says any contagion which may occur
In the schools will be due to the obstinacy
of school board members.
