Rolfe Family Remembered By Old Man,
With $25,000 Bequest

Rolfe, Oct. 14 The kindness of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Williams to the late W. H.; Hait in his declining years, was worth more than $25,000 to the worthy pair. When Mr. Hait, who was wealthy, died, he left his entire estate to Mrs. Williams, the sole reason being the goodness of herself and her husband to him in his old age. Mr. Hait had no kin and his wife died some years before him.

The Williams lived on the Hait farm for about twenty years. Mr. Williams worked for Mr. Hait before he married Mrs. Williams and the two made a home for him since the death of Mrs. Hait some years ago.

The property, which is given to Mrs. Williams, without any restrictions, consists of 300 acres of choice Iowa land, $3,000 worth of cattle, about $1,500 in cash, $800 in life insurance, while the debt of the estate is less than $3,000. The net value of Mrs. Williams is at least $25,000.
