Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: be paid over to the beneficiaries that it could not be attached, but because it was to be paid "into their own hands" upon " their own receipt," these words showing the testator's intention not to permit it to be diverted by any means. The cases cited by the learned judge below show quite clearly that a mere direction " to pay over " to the cestui que trust does not imply an intention to create a spendthrift trust.

Nothing short of clear and satisfactory proof of an express agreement to waive the rule can be regarded as sufficient for that purpose. Argued Oct. 12, 1906. Appeal, No. 69, Oct. T., 1906, by defendant, from judgment of C. P. No. 5, Phila. Co., Sept. T., 1902, No. 1,995, on verdict for plaintiff in case of D. Z. Evans, Jr., v. Thomas T. more
