Smith Reynolds' Estate Smith Reynolds, • who so 1'ar as the record shows never canted ; .a dollar ill his life, met an early death from n revolver bullet at the htuuls of <i person unknown and left his heirs to squabble over his, $25,000,000 slnu'C of- the R. J. Reynolds tobacco fortune. The heirs are still squabbling—by proxy. It;liappdn.s that they are infants, happily unaware of thbir fortune. But their mothers, wives out) and-.two of the late young Sir. Key- nohls, with tlie assistance of c.erlain members of tho legal profession, lire striving — quite disinterestedly, of course—to protect their rights. Baby number one, it appears, was endowed with u few paltry, millions when the iirst Mrs. Smith Reynolds obtained a divorce. The bulk of the'- estate is claimed in behalf of baby number two, born of the well publicized Llbby Ilolman Reynolds after Smith's untimely death. Inspired no doubt by a mother's in-' stinct to protect her child from a life of hardship oiiVonly two or throe million dollars, the first Mrs. Reynolds is seeking for her baby the -.entire estate. She lias discovered - that tho divorce wliicli she obtained from tbe child's father was not a legal divorce and that consequently the marriage of Reynolds to wife number two was not a legal marriage and baby number two L< not a legal heir. ;' ; From down here in Arkansas^ ; it- mighl appear that the ?2o,006^000 which is available should, be .sufficient to give both babies an adequate start in life. Those of us who arc still working on our Iirst million naturally find it a little difficult to reali/.c that the difference between §3,000,000 ami ?10,000,000 or $25,000,000 must be of vital importance lo the welfare and "future happiness of a baby girl. Maybe we arc right. Maybe it is not ll'tu money but the principle of the thing that has stirred up the big legal tattle over in Carolina, in any case, for the sake of the nominal principals in the contest, it is our pious hope lhat thi, lawyers will leave them a living out of it when if is finally wound up.
