Carr Durham was tried for killing Christy and two sons of Christy. The Durhams and the Christys lived in what is known as Cracker's Bend, in the extreme eastern end of Houston county. The elder Dur- ham and the elder Christy had mar- ried sisters. A feud sprang up be- tween the two families. One night at a social gathering, in the com- munity in which they all lived, the elder Durham, while standing or sitting in front of a fire place, was fired on through an open window and killed. Suspicion pointed to- ward two of the Christy boys, who were arrested and, in due course of time, tried. One was acquitted by the jury and the other is now serv-...

See Clydlopedia of Law and Proceda re, page 1004, Simpkins" Administration of Estates in Texas, page 198. The question of wills is an Interesting one. To properly interpret and construe them, so as to carry in effect the wiil of the testator, is not only in- teresting but often fraught with much difficulty to the courts and juries of the country. Occasionally, by reason of this difficulty, there is hazard to those to whom the estate should properly be awarded. Often through a sort of sympathy, great error and gross wrong are done by the juries of the country, in saying who is entitled to property under a will. The will of a testator is now and then overturned and distribu- tion made of his estate so utterly at variance with his intentions, that could the testator be apprise...
