The Deceased and his Heirs

  A MAN died leaving a large estate and many sorrowful relations who
claimed it.  After some years, when all but one had had judgment
given against them, that one was awarded the estate, which he asked
his Attorney to have appraised.

  "There is nothing to appraise," said the Attorney, pocketing his
last fee.

  "Then," said the Successful Claimant, "what good has all this
litigation done me?"

  "You have been a good client to me," the Attorney replied,
gathering up his books and papers, "but I must say you betray a
surprising ignorance of the purpose of litigation."
