      Nashville, Ill. December 6.
      The opening of the will of the late Theodore F. Brink, Rich merchant of Nashville, who left an estate worth $280,000, this morning aroused unusual interest, as the eight churches of Nashville, Forman Memorial M. E., First M. E., Wesley M. E., Presbyterian, Baptist, Catholic St. Ann's, Evangelical and Lutheran - were each bequeathed $2000, although Brink never attended any services.
      Brink, who had no children, bequeathed $10,000 a piece to the Evangelical Orphans Home in Hoyleton and the Baptist Orphanage in Irvington. $10,000 of the estate goes for a mausoleum in the Masonic cemetery and $500 for the upkeep.
      Other bequests are: Red Cross, $5000; Humane Society, $5000; Miss Lou Lorenze, housekeeper, $10,000, and homestead, valued at over $10,000, during lifetime, and $5000 for upkeep; nieces and nephews of himself and wife, Julia Feltmeier Brink who died HJanuary 31, 1925, each $2000; North Prairie Cemetery $5000; Mrs. John Bobrink and Miss Lizzie Lorenz, former clerks, each $1000; three daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Polk Atchison, former clerks, each $1000; Frank Heitmeier, $2000.
      The rest of the estate is divided among the brothers and sisters of Mr. and Mrs. Brink.
