To Upset a Will.

Fanny Frances Toazer of this city, alleged to be a person of unsound mind, by her next friend, Martha M. Davis, has issued a writ against Noah Stouffer and Alfred Collins of Stouffville, as executors of the alleged will of Alfred Toaze, her late husband. It is claimed that the will proved is invalid, and that a former will should be declared the true one.

Not Bewitched, But Insane

Fanny Frances Toaze will be declared to be of unsound mind by Chief Justice Meredith on the production of an adopted daughter's affidavit.

When the matter came before his Lordship it was said that Mrs. Toaze thought the people in her neighborhood had been working witchcraft upon her, that she had been bewitched by her neighbors, that witchcraft was running through the country, that she had heard imaginary voices, and that there had been communication between houses in the community by a sort of wireless telegraphy.

"She says, too, that she had business relations with the Governor-General," said a lawyer.

"What Governor-General?"

"She says it was ten years ago that she took an oath on his Excellency's sword."

The husband, Alfred Toaze, of Stouffville, died last February, leaving $8,000. He willed her the use of a house and lot in Stouffville, and a life annuity of $150 in lieu of dower. An action to set aside Toaze's will has been instituted on the widow's behalf.
