Kesuvos 105

1a) [line 1] TISHAVA BA'SOF - (lit. she takes an oath at the end) when she hears that her husband has passed away or when he sends her a Get to divorce her, she must take an oath attesting that she has not taken any of her husband's money unjustly before she can collect her Kesuvah
b) [line 1] V'LO SISHAVA BA'TECHILAH - but she does not take an oath when she asks to receive money for food (lit. at the onset. However, she may not ask for money within the first three months of her husband's departure, since there is a Chazakah that a person who travels abroad leaves enough provisions in his house for at least three months -- Kesuvos 107a)

2) [line 9] D'CHASHIV LEI KETANI - the Mishnah listed (a) the two most *important* judges; (b) the two judges who are *mentioned* below in the Mishnah (TOSFOS DH d'Chashiv)

3) [line 12] KITMAH NETI'AH - an animal that cut down a sapling

(a) Every year, one half a Shekel was collected from every Jew to fund the Korbenos Tzibur that were offered in the Beis ha'Mikdash. Beis Din placed the money that was collected in a room in the Mikdash reserved for that purpose (see Background to Yoma 55:7, "Shekalim").
(b) At three times during the year (before each of the three festivals), Beis Din filled three boxes, each of which held three Se'in (approximately 21.6, 25 or 43.2 liters, depending upon the differing Halachic opinions) with Shekalim from that room. The portion that was set aside in the boxes was called the "Terumas ha'Lishkah," while the remainder of the Shekalim were called "Sheyarei ha'Lishkah" (Shekalim 7b, 8a). (See Insights to Shekalim 9:2)
(c) There is a difference of opinion as to why the Terumas ha'Lishkah was done three times a year rather than just once. One opinion states that the reason was only to publicize the Terumas ha'Lishkah (Shekalim 2b, see Insights there). According to others, Beis Din was concerned that the Terumas ha'Lishkah should be collected from the Shekalim that arrived later in the year (this opinion is also mentioned in the Yerushalmi, ibid.).
(d) The Shekalim from the Terumas ha'Lishkah were used to purchase the animals needed for public sacrifices and for the wages of certain laborers and appointees of Hekdesh. The Shekalim from the Sheyarei ha'Lishkah were used to buy other goods necessary for the upkeep of the Mikdash and the entire city of Yerushalayim (Shekalim 4a-b).
