acd recluse, who died three yr-ars ao,
leaving an estate supi-osed to be worth
$30,000, haa arrived. It fln1 the estate
now value! at 13.100, with claims for at
torneys' fees of S2.9MI and anther debts
mora than sufficient to wliw It out. The
attorneys' claims, however, have not yet
beam allowed by County judre Crawford.
Will Vh l-robilfil.
A will mailed from Colorado, by whom
non In Omaha knows, was probated by
Judire Craw-ford after many handwriting
spurts had testified to tho validity of
the signature. The case was appealed
to the district court, and following a aet
tlment, by which Jepue Peterson, brother
of the deceased and administrator of tha
estate, received a house and lot and $260,
tha will wsa set aside.
Children of tha dead man, unnamed In
tha will, profited by tha court's decreA.
Tha widow, who was a beneficiary undrr
tha will, received nothing; from the estate
by virtue of an ante-nuptial contract.

cific are In a quandry as to methods used,
despite several circulars issued, and many
rush telegrams have been received ask

kinds of shipment
The excess baggage shipments are the
most trying. One flustered agent In a
Wyoming town wired to the legal de
partments stating he waa sending a dog;
as excess baggage and that he he didn't
know where to place the revenue stamp,
as no bill of lading waa attached to the
dog and the stamp could not be placed
on the dog, as Its wool was fuaxy. He
was advised to stick the stamp on the
baggage check, where It belongs.
Another agent wanted to know if the
stamp should be placed on the bill of
lading or on the shipping check. 'Other
inquiries just as foolish have been errlv.

to explain Just how the stamp tax la

Kieser was called the next morning to
