A Nice Bequest
--------
Mr. John Wilson, a self-made rich man of Montgomery, died recently leaving the bulk of his fortune to the Orphans’ Home, at Tuskegee, and the Deaf, Dumb and Blind Instituted at Talladega, Ala. The estate will yield $20,000 or more to each one. This is a worthy bequest, worthily bestowed. Mr. Wilson was an old bachelor without kith or kin. It is not often that such a bequest is made in Alabama, where we have so few rich men.
