Wliun a will is shown to have

presumption ofsanityin favorof the
testator, which at this stage of the

sufficient to authorize the probate of
When In a civil proceeding tho
question of sanity and insanity is
directly in Issue, while giving to the
general presumption in favor of san-
tyall that may be family claimed
for it, tho burden of proving sanity
Is upon the party who asserts It.
I Testamentary capacity Is mainly a
'niiiuflnii if fwtf ti tut jlfitlirmtllf.fi
from a consideration of all the evi
dence. The testator must have suf
ficient capacity to comprehend the
condition of Ids property, his rela
tion to the persons who were, should
or might have been the object of his
bounty, and the scope and bearings
of the provisions of his will.
In deciding upon the capacity of
the testator to make his will, it Is
the soundness of his mind and not
the particular state of bodily health
that is to bo attended to; the latter
may be in a state of extreme im
bcclllly and yet ho may possess
sufficient understanding to direct
how his property shall be disposed of.
Old age, sickness, distress nor
debility of hotly Incapacitate, pro
vided the testator has possession of
his mental fucultlesaud understands
the business In which ho Is engaged.
The real jioint In Issue Is testa
mentary capacity or Incapacity at
tho precise date of tho transaction
what his mental condition was be
fore and after executing tho will Is
only Iinporlantits it throws light up
on the mind and shows its actual
condition when the will was ex
ecuted. Tho law gives to every man
of sound luiuil the right to dlsposo
of his property by last will, and this
Is regarded as one of tho most
efficient means which he has in
protracted life, or old age, to com
mand the attention due his infirmities.
