Will she marry him?

--An old curmudgeon recently died in New York city, leaving behind $200,000 worth of property, and a will in which his executors are directed to pay to his daughter $800 per annum until her marriage, then a fourth portion of the estate is to be paid to her, provided she does not marry a person named Frederick R. Shettler. If she marries Shettler then her entire interest in her father's property is revoked. There may be some people curious enough to know whether gold or Shettler will win the fair maiden.
