"TIME brings all things."
In Portland, Me., Herbert L. Pye, 61, ashman, fell heir last week to $1,500,000. Said he:
In 1884 Herbert L. Pye, 16, saw a boat capsize in Casco Bay, a man floundering in the water, he dived in, rescued one George E. Rice of Manhattan. Thereafter, Rice and Pye were fast friends, correspondents. Forty-five years passed. Rice became a wealthy soap manufacturer. Several months ago he died. As proof of his repeated statement that he "never would forget the act" of Pye, he willed him his entire estate.
