 (ii) A bequeaths his Government securities to B, but postpones the delivery of them till the death of C. The interest which falls due between the death of A and the death of C belongs to B, and must, unless he is a minor, be paid to him as it is received.

 (iii) The testator bequeaths all his four per cent. Government promissory notes to A when he shall complete the age of 18.
