I further give and bequeath to her the full use and occupancy of my residence and premises, where I now live for and during her natural life. If I have any cash in Bank or otherwise left after the payment of my just debts and funeral expenses; Then I further give and bequeath to my said wife Lydia A. an annuity of One Hundred and fifty dollars in each year, which is to be paid to her in monthly sums of twelve & 50/100 Dollars on or about the tenth of each month by my Executors hereinafter named.
