PART OF ESTATE MISSING
Harry Stanford's Supposed Mort
gages May Be In Safe Deposit Box.
When tlie administratrix of the estate
of Harry Stanford applied for an allow
ance of $150 a month out of an estate
of $3000 yesterday, County Judge Cleeton
demurred until it was made known that
the widow possessed more than $10,000 in
her own right. Judge Cleeton then al
lowed the expenditure of J125 a month.
Mra Stanford is bedridden and requires
the constant care of a nurse. In addi
tion to an estate of $3000 left her by her
husband, she owns property at Bast
Eleventh and Bast Ash streets valued at
more than $10,000.
The exact value of the estate of Harry
Stanford is not yet known, relatives be
lieving that he possessed several valuable
mortgages. He held a safety-deposit box
in a Portland bank, but search by his
heirs has been futile. Mrs. "Nannie Bow
ers is the administratrix of the estate.
