When bequest vests Testator, after directing the payment of his debts, says: Idirect that all the property I have, or in which I have an interest, both real and personal, be sold as is customary in such cases, and the net proceeds of the sale to be divided into four parts, namely: my brothers, J., W., and L., to have each a fourth part, and the other fourth part to be divided among my brother W.'s children, - each one to have the amount of his share when he arrives at the age of twenty-one. The debts due me from my brother W., I give to him. Held, the bequests to the children of W. did not vest at the death of the testator, but only as and when each child arrived at the age of twenty-one; and therefore the children dying before attaining that age took nothing under the will. -Major's Executors v. Major's Administrator, Sup. Ct. Va., Va. L. J., Oct., p. 626.
