Who Died Recently at Sterling, Illinois
-------------------------------------------------------
Left $20,000 Estate
-----------------------------
Thomas Stains and Benjamin Biecher Some of Heirs
-----------------------------
Tomas Stains, formerly a hotel man of the city and now engaged as a clerk at the Hotel Willow, and his cousin, Benjamin Biecher, the Tenth and Walnut street grocer, will leave on Wednesday morning for Sterling, Illinois, to take the necessary steps to claim part of a small fortune which is coming to them and other relatives hereabouts.

LEFT BY JOHN BIECHER

The estate was left by the late John Biecher, an Illinois farmer, who left Lebanon county when he was quite a boy and lived on the farm until a few years before his death. He left an estate of something over $20,000, which is now about to be distributed, and an audit hearing will be held on Friday of this week at the county seat, at which time the heirs can be present to make objections if there be any. In this case it is expected there will be no trouble in the ajudication of the estate and Messrs. Stains and Biecher will merely be present to take note of the proceedings, and to represent the several heirs located in this region.

IN FIVE SHARES

The decedent left his town house to his housekeeper, and left only $300 to a son whose present whereabouts are unknown. The rest of the real and personal property, including the farm, etc., is divided by the will into a number of shares -- about five, one of which goes in its entirety to a brother living in the west, and the others to Biecher and Stains here.

STAINS AND BIECHER

Thomas Stains, Millard Stains, and Mrs. Milton Hershberger, are children of the late Mrs. Sarah Stains, who was a sister to John Biecher, the decedent, and Benjamin Biecher is a son of the late George Biecher, who was a brother of the decedent.

John Biecher left this region many years ago, as he was engaged in farming in Illinois for over forty years, and he was therefore remembered only to the older generation in this locality.
