Some $68,000 in charitable bequests and gifts to relatives were left in the will of the late Julius Weil, insurance broker, who died last Thursday. The largest sum, $20,000, was given outright to the Jewish Hospital.

Other charitable gifts include $5,000 to the Shriners’ Hospital, $5,000 to the Young Men’s Hebrew Association, $5,000 to the Federation of Jewish Charities, $2,000 each to the Jewish Sanitorium located in St. Louis County, the Jewish Orthodox Old Folks’ Home and the Jewish Orphan Home of Cleveland. The Federation of Jewish Charities of Cincinnati will receive $500 and the St. Louis branch of the Salvation Army $200.

A $10,000 trust fund was established for his cousin, Miss Fanny Weil. The principal of that sum will go to the St. Louis Jewish Orphan Home. The sum of $16,500 was distributed to 15 other relatives and the residue of the estate to a sister and two brothers.
