Blae Hill Are Fortunate.
HASTINGS. Neb., Feb. 6.-(8ieclal Tele
gram.) It was merely by accident that
Mrs. Margaret Crowder of Harvard, Neb.,
found, a few days ugo that she was
heiress to an estate of over $3,Wn which
has remained uncluimed for nearly ten
years. The property is In Carlisle, Canada,
und Mrs. Crowder passed several days In
thst town lust month, without learning
that she wa one of the long-loked-for
heirs. Mrs. Crowder has tao sisters, one
In Blue Hill, Neb., and the other In Cali
fornia, and a brother, Samuel Bebee of
Harvard, all of a-hont wllk share In the es
tate. A few weeks ago Mrs. Crowder planned
to take a trip to Canada and New York
stala for the purpose of visiting the places
of her childhood days. She went first to
Carlisle to see the old home in which she
waa born. After remaining there a few
daya she went to Canton. N. V., and while
there met nn elderly man, who expressed
surprise when he heard Her mention her
maiden name. The mun at ouce said that
ho had remembered reading an advertise
went for the heirs or an estate leu by n
man of that name. The advertisement
waa found and It was then discovered that
the unclaimed estate was in Carlisle, left
by Mrs. Crowder's grandfather, Samuel
Itebec, who died fifteen years ago. At his
death the property passed Into the hands
of his two maiden sisters, who died a fw
months apart some five years later. Since
then a firm of Carlisle attorneys have been
endeavoring to locate the heirs. Mrs.
Crowder, until the matter came up In the
conversation at Canton, had no suspicion
of any property being left by any of her
ancestors. Her father, Samuel Bebee, Jr..
had given up. a seafaring life and come to
live with her In Harvard about fifteen
years ago and he often spoke to her of a
fortune awaiting them somewhere. He was
over 90 years old, however, and Mrs.
Crowder paid no serious attention to his
remarks, believing them merely to be ex
pression of the wandering thoughts of old
age. He died ten years ago. Mrs. Crowder
returned to Harvard and at once opened
correspondence with the firm of attorneys
named In the advertisement. She haa been
asked to go to Carlisle at once and pre
sent proofs of her relationship. She will
start Wednesday, accompanied ' by her
brother. Mrs. Crowder Is a widow and Is
possessed of only small means.

'Tor over thirty-6v years I was a

It was all over my body, limbs,

been examined by the Government
Board over fifteen times, and they said
there was no cure for me. I have
taken all kinds of medicine and have
spent large sums of money for doctors,
without avail. A short time ago I

and after using two cakes of Cuticura
Soap, two boxes of Cuticura Ointment,
