Agnes Anderson yesterday in! an amended appraisal. Mrs. Anderson, pioneer Seattle resident and widow of Alfred H. Anderson, former Northwest lum— ber baron, died about a year ago. At that time, the estate was of- ficially listed at "more than $100,- 000." Five thousand shares of the Stratford Investment Company and ', common stock comprise the bulk! of the estate. at $10,414,346. The amended appraisal lists such items as a checking account for $90,842, savings accounts to- taling more than $255,000, bonds valued at $1,019,000, a diamond bracelet valued at $2,440, pearl necklace at $1,500, emerald and a They are appraised i diamond ring for an equal amount. Total value of the estate was set at $11,957,075 in the appraisal ‘by Robert T. McDonald, W. \V. Scruby and Dietrich Schmitz.

She personally shopped for her groceries, and her carriage was frequently seen among the trucks and hucksters’ carts at the Pike St. market center. Fourteen relatives and friends residing in the Eastern and South- ern United States, the nearest of kin cousins, will share the bulk of the estate.

Boarding the palatial steamer “Florida,” sailing at 7 p. m., and seating for a special dinner which (i everybody enjoyed, though some‘ later regretted eating so much: The trip was not rough or urb; usual, but many passed up break- 1 fast before landing in Cuba. The: three days around Havana have been covered briefly in earlier= notes, but a visit on the last day to a Civic Military Institute, Cei-i ba del Agua, built around a huge5 Ceiba tree from whose roots a spring flows. The grounds are extensive, the buildings elaborate- and finished in marble with all‘ furniture and fittings of mahog- any. This is a school for orphan- ed children of both sexes, mainly; died l in auto accidents. It is semi—mili— training, and gave an excellent drill with their band for our; benefit. Here was served a typ-; ical Cuban dinner as guests ofi Presidente Batista, whose special; pride is this institution which is 35 miles from Havana. A thea- tre seating 1,000 and a museum of catalogued and mounted speci~‘ mens equal anything seen in our country. The "Florida" landed at Miami! at 8:30, about a 12-hour trip veryl smooth this time, but it took two hours to get through customs on this side, check our citizenship over again and our grips for dut-; iable goods. Havana, by the way, is due south of Miami, half way along the keys and the rest open Gulf. Finishing Florida Tour ’ Our regular buses and drivers were waiting for our party and' soon got away north, the first! stop being at Lewiston, the sugarl town at the foot of Lake Okee-' chobee, an oasis in the midst of the Everglades. The lake is thel largest in the U. S. wholly with- in one state, over 100 miles ei-[ ther way, and almost entirely‘ surrounded by a 17-foot dike, with I locks, an old federal project. As the result of drainage ditches a very large area has been re— claimed into a marvelous district' as level as the floor, of black silt soil, productive of most vegetables, ’ forty days. This is the home of the U. S. Sugar Corporation which has about 18,000 acres available for“ sugar cane and owns the largest sugar grinding house in the Uni—] tons' ted States, of about 6,000 a day capacity. As the season had just closed the plant was not in operation, but its various operations employ about 4,000 workers, white and colored. Un- fortunately the domestic sugar producers are hit by an arbitrary quota rule, like our cedar shin- gles, and are allowed to supply only thirty per cent of the do— mestic demand, hence work on short rations. Only a few hundred sacks of raw sugar were in the vast ware- house where the editorial party enjoyed a fine dinner of cane-fed roast beef, music by an excellent band, an entertainment of Negro folk songs by natives. The com- pany maintains ten plantation cen- ters which are as near “Nigger Heaven” as one ever sees, each m a. grassy plot, church and movie buildings, and every facility to enjoy life and association, hospi- tals, schools, with none of the squalor one sees all over the this region and drainage a prob- south in the' colored race. lem, the roadway is dug up leav- ing a deep canal on one side all the way, safe enough to stay on the road. On this trip one can look for miles over the low veg-‘ etation with not a hill or tall tree until the green meets the horizon. This day's run was 275 miles. Dusk was closing down when. eral miles out, were seen and‘the, tall sky-scraper hotels were Soon! the lights of Miami suburbs, sev- reached. The party was quarter-r ed at three leading hotels, 'but some of the larger hotels had closed for the season. Banquet at the Royal Palm Club with an hour or so of good floor show wound up Sunday evening. Break- fast next morning at the Mac- fadden-Beauville Hotel, as guests of the famed Barnarr himself, widely known publisher and health faddist. This was a. beautiful spot among the many of this ex- clusive district facing the ocean beach, and while the beach and pools were offered, there was no time to enjoy them. ‘ Then followed an hour or so driving around in front of the exclusive private homes and cost-‘ 1y grounds, and the beauty spots of Miami, where big money plays in winter and the rest of the country trails along the rest of the year when moderate prices rule. Luncheon At Coral Gables The luncheon and entertainment at noon were under the auspices of the Coral Gables Country Club at their spacious quarters, and by the Chamber, and this was the last time the entire party was together, as it split almost in two with ovar 250 lined up for the Cuban trip going to their hotels and packing for the steamer, while the others continued their tour, due, at the International Airport tovwelcome the South American clipper in and have dinner as guests of the port. . Miami is the southernmost big city of Florida, with around 175,4 000 all-year population, doubling in winter, and it has many tall hotels and accommodations for its peak crowds. It is a beauti- ful city, built on Flaglerfs dream with more attention to wealth and sport than any local resource oth- er than climate and scenery. There are numerous beaches and re‘ sorts within easy- reach, names. more or less known but play- grounds. Here are two famous race tracks in beautiful settings of tree and flowers, whicli must be gay with color in their sea- sons. Here as at all other. spots 'Fort Lauderdale was the next afternoon stop for rest and juice, a lively center for both farming and recreation, with mild climate from the Gulf stream only 21/2 miles off shore. Dinner at George Washington hotel at West Palm Beach, where the night was spent. Out early next morning for the last day’s trip, with the first stop divided between Vero Beach and McKee Jungle Gardens, in order to handle the crowd for a. barbe- que steak dinner. This was serv- ed on a single mahogany plank 20 feet long, four feet wide and four inches thick, the largest such plank in the world. Along with the steak and trimmings was a. big potato baked in a vat of hot rosin, a vnovelty. This is another fine collection of tropic tree and flower, with 60 varieties of palms in the natural jungle and many interesting relics accumu- lated from over the world. Next stop was at Cocoa, the heart of the Indian River country, noted for its vegetable products, and the finest of oranges, the heavy smooth skinned fruit we never see at home; then the fa- mous Daytona. Beach, where the speed auto record has been made. This is another pretty place, where the last fish feed was en- joyed in the ball park. With re- gret the end of the tour was reached and the buses wound up in Jacksonville, in time for the] party to board the trains f o r home, Saturday evening, May 3rd. Lost" Youths Find Way Out of Woods Montesano, May 29. —— Two youths, . lost several days a n (1 nights, in harbor forests while on separate bark peeling ,.expeditions,_ were back home today. Glenn Hammill, twenty-three, reached a Clemons logging camp this morning. He had been miss- ing Since he left his Montesano home Monday. A message to Mayor Elvin Byles here said Hammill was “very hungry but unhurt.” Victor York, seventeen, Elma, found his way out of the woods' in the Lost Lake district of Mason County yesterday afternoon after1 two days’ search by Civilian Con- servation Corps boys and deputy sheriffs.
