Former Arizonan Takes Parting
Slam at Attorneys In His Will

A New York dispatch says:
Ezra C. Bartlett, a retired Arizona mine owner who dropped dead here on August 29, in his will warns the executor of his fifty thousand dollar will as follows:

"I particularly warn you against attorneys and trust that you will not need to consult them regarding this instrument.  My personal experience with lawyers has been extensive, and has convinced me that they are dangerous crooks, expressly educated and trained to obtain one's confidence in order that they may defraud with impunity."
