Mrs. K. I Yurdonllno has fallen
heir to a fortnno that will make hur a
rich woman. Hut, stranguly, tho
heiress is no where to bo fmind. A
woman of that name was in Guthrie a
few days prior to tho opening of the
strip, and it is supposed she was in
tho mad rush for claims: siuco then
nothing has boon heard of her. The
chief of police of Wichita has re
ceived iv letter from California people
in which inquiries are made concern
ing Mrs Yardenline, nnd also of her
good luck. Tho letter stated that the
woman was residing olthcr in Kansas
or Oklahoma. pud the writer directed
that search bo instituted for her. In
regard to tho mattor the Wichita
Eagle says: "Tho last thing heard of
her was In 1H70 nnd she was living
here then. On Dee. JO of that year
she appeared In the probate court,
when W. C. Little was judge and re
leased her parentage of her son, Will
iam Applegatc Mrs. Yardenlino was
first married to a man named Apple
gate, from whom she was divorced.
'The letter was written by Orlando
Meyers, but In- does not say how much
the fortune amounts to. Neither does
he say who Wt it If Mrs. Yardcllne
is dead, her relatives, if she has any,
are requested to cm am imitate with
the chief of polico of this city."
